Which stars are getting paid the most in 2019?

While Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are definitely on the list, neither is number one, according to Variety's "Money Issue." Both apparently took a pay cut (earning a mere $10 million each) to make "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" for Quentin Tarantino.

Who is number one? A sweet $27 million for Michael Bay's "6 Underground" makes Ryan Reynolds the highest-paid actor in Hollywood. Thanks, Netflix! (And this list doesn't seem to include his paycheck for "Detective Pikachu!")

And at $12-13 million, Emily Blunt's fee for "A Quiet Place 2" means she's the highest-paid actress in Hollywood right now.

Robert Downey Jr., who is getting a bundle for "Avengers: Endgame," is branching out to a possible new franchise with Dr. Dolittle. His paycheck? $20 million.

Also fascinating, see who earns the most on "Hobbs & Shaw" and "Bad Boys for Life."
