Most Valuable Star Robert Downey Jr.

Oct 23 2013, 11:40am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Robert Downey Jr. has been named the Most Valuable Star of 2013.

The 'Iron Man 3' actor topped Vulture's annual Hollywood list for the second time, with Leonardo DiCaprio coming in second and labeled "The Star Who Started Smiling Again" and 'Silver Linings Playbook' actress Jennifer Lawrence - "The Breakthrough BFF" - in third place.

The publication compile their list based on several criteria, including a star's box office power - domestic and overseas - awareness and popularity, the value they bring to a production studio, likeability, Oscar mentions, Twitter and tabloid mentions and critics score.

Praising Downey - who has battled drug addiction in the past - as 'The King', Vulture said of the star: "His appeal is off the charts, and he has a studio rating third only to Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio's. And he's managed his stardom with grace and good humor, a remarkable turnaround from the drug-fuelled days when he was an uninsurable lost boy."

Rounding out the top five were "Never-been-better Superstar" Sandra Bullock and "Golden Boy" Brad Pitt in fourth and fifth place respectively.

The publication said of the highest-ranked stars: "In second place is Leonardo DiCaprio; while he doesn't have the career box-office tallies of a Will Smith, he has proved that he can help a studio make a prestige project pay off: Would 'The Great Gatsby' have made nearly $350 million worldwide without him? Sandra Bullock safely sits in fourth place after following summer comedy hit 'The Heat' with the enormous critical and commercial smash 'Gravity'."

Will Smith, Christian Bale, Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks - who shot up 25 places from last year's rankings - and Johnny Depp rounded out the top 10.

Marvel Studios Panel - Comic-Con International 2014
Donning a dodgy Russian accent and a skin-tight, leather suit as “The Avengers’” Black Widow is reaping dividends for Scarlett Johansson.

Jeff Bridges' Best AMA Answers: On 'The Big Lebowski,' 'Iron Man,' Bagels and Love

Google Previews New Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" Operating System
Reddit AMAs with actors can be a mixed bag: The quick-response format can reveal some satisfying answers, but leave you desperate for a follow-up answer that never comes. And sometimes the subject does not play ball at all, failing to give even the illusion of caring. (Witness the great Woody Harrelson AMA debacle of 2012.) But it is rare that you get a session as rewarding as yesterday’s back and forth with Jeff Bridges, there to promote his upcom ...
