Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Is The Highest-Paid Actor In The World

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is without a doubt the hardest working man in Hollywood. His list of upcoming work in unreal, not to mention his current schedule which includes filming Fast 8, Baywatch and launching a YouTube channel. He's also just been announced for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017.

This hard work is paying off, The Rock is now officially the highest-paid actor of any kind on the planet, according to the annual “Highest Paid Celebrities” list from Forbes who revealed the action hero took home a whopping $64.5 million since June 2015, putting him at No. 19 on its list of the world's 100 highest paid stars.

"Rock-solid box office numbers helped the erstwhile wrestler become the world’s highest-paid actor. Since helping launch the billion-dollar Fast and Furious franchise and leading 2015’s “San Andreas” to a surprising $473 million worldwide, Dwayne Johnson has become Hollywood’s go-to action hero. Next up for the beefy star: a starring role in the upcoming “Baywatch” remake. “I can kick ass better than anyone on the planet,” he once told FORBES. “And I have a decent smile.”

The No. 1 celebrity was Taylor Swift, who took home a staggering $170 million over the past 12 months.
