Dwayne Johnson tops Forbes’ highest-paid actor list




There’s no stopping Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Forbes announced that he has surpassed Robert Downey Jr., to become the world’s highest-paid actor, getting a massive $64.5 million so far in 2016.

The former WWE champion more than doubled his 2015 earnings, getting money from upfront fees for movies including Central Intelligence and Fast 8, as well as the forthcoming Baywatch.

Coming in second place was Jackie Chan with $61 million thanks to a lot of his Chinese movies and Matt Damon came in third with $55 million. Tom Cruise, at $53 million, and Johnny Depp, at $48 million, rounded up the top five list.

On his list of upcoming movies apart from Fast 8 and Baywatch, Dwayne Johnson has Moana, Doc Savage, Rampage, San Andreas 2, Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon, Jumanji, and Shazam!
