Dwayne Johnson Crowned The Highest Paid Actor In The World

He’s one of the biggest actors on the planet, both figuratively and literally, and now Dwayne Johnson can class himself as the highest paid actor on the planet with an astounding $64.5 million.

The hardworking action star, who’s last film Central Intelligence took over $200 million in the US, beat out a host of other Hollywood a-listers to the coveted title including last year’s winner Robert Downey Jr.

Johnson’s colossal earnings are attributed to a packed film schedule including Fast 8, Momoa, the upcoming Baywatch movie, and of course his primetime TV show Ballers… Busy guy ey!

The man himself took to Twitter after Forbes confirmed the accolade, telling his 10 million followers that anyone can achieve their goals.

Rounding off the top 2 is perhaps surprising addition, considering his lack of Hollywood blockbusters over recent years, but clearly Jackie Chan is still as popular as however, taking home an eye-watering $61 million – thanks mostly in part to his unwavering popularity in the Chinese film industry.
