Why Dwayne Johnson is Hollywood’s highest-paid actor again


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson won the title of highest-paid actor in the world for the second year in a row.Between June 2019 and June 2020, Johnson racked up $ 87.5 million, earning $ 23.5 million on his own from his starring role in the upcoming Netflix movie “Red Notice,” according to Forbes. Additionally, Johnson has found financial success with his Under Armor clothing line, Project Rock.

However, this is a slight drop from 2019, in which Johnson made $ 89.4 million playing in “Jumanji: The Next Level,” among other projects. Johnson topped the list in 2016, with revenues totaling $ 64.5 million.

Just behind Johnson is Ryan Reynolds, his “Red Notice” co-star, with $ 71.5 million. Reynolds received $ 20 million for the film, in addition to Netflix’s additional $ 20 million for “Six Underground.” A third Netflix movie starring Reynolds is also in the works, bringing in another hefty paycheck.

Another Netflix favorite, Mark Wahlberg, came in third with $ 58 million. Her income comes from the action comedy “Spenser Confidential”, as well as her production roles in documentaries like “McMillions” and “Wahl Street”.

Ben Affleck follows with $ 55 million in revenue from his return to the big screen in “The Way Back” and “The Last Thing He Wanted”.

Vin Diesel arrives at No.5, which is still making $ 54 million despite the “Fast and Furious 9” release date being pushed back. Her production role in the Netflix animated spin-off, “Fast and Furious Spy Races,” kept her wallet warm.

Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, Will Smith, Adam Sandler and Jackie Chan round out the top 10. Together, these 10 actors have been paid over $ 545 million.

Although Forbes’ list of the highest-paid actresses in 2020 has yet to be released, earnings for the top ten actresses on last year’s list were only $ 314.6 million.
