Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has won the title of highest paid actor in the world for the second year in a row.
Between June 2019 and June 2020, Johnson grossed $ 87.5 million, making just $ 23.5 million just from his role in the upcoming Netflix movie “Red Notice,” according to Forbes. In addition, Johnson has found monetary success with his Under Armor clothing line, Project Rock.
However, this is a small drop from 2019, during which Johnson brought home $ 89.4 million from starring in “Jumanji: The Next Level,” among other projects. Johnson first topped the list in 2016, with total revenue of $ 64.5 million.
Shortly after Johnson is his “Red Announcement”; co-star Ryan Reynolds with $ 71.5 million. Reynolds was paid $ 20 million for the film, in addition to another $ 20 million from Netflix for “Six Underground.” A third Netflix movie starring Reynolds is also at work, bringing another heavy control.
Another Netflix favorite, Mark Wahlberg, came in third with $ 58 million. His earnings come from the action comedy “Spenser Confidential”, as well as his roles in production in documentaries such as “McMillions” and “Street Wahl”.
Ben Affleck continues with $ 55 million in revenue from his big screen returns on “The Way Back” and “The Last Thing He Wanted.”
Entry to No. 5 is Vin Diesel, who still made $ 54 million despite the release date of “Fast and Furious 9” being printed again. His productive role in the Netflix animated spin-off, “Fast and Furious Spy Races,” kept his portfolio warm.
About ten top stars are Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, Will Smith, Adam Sandler and Jackie Chan. Combined, these 10 actors were paid over $ 545 million.
Although the list of the highest paid actors in Forbes in 2020 has not been published yet, the income of the ten best actresses in last year’s list reached only 314.6 million dollars.
