DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON IS CURRENTLY HOLLYWOOD’S HIGHEST-PAID ACTOR

Johnson commanded $64.5 million between June 2015 and June 2016, more than doubling his earnings from the previous year and bumping Robert Downey Jr. from the top of the list, where he was perched for three consecutive years. The bulk of Johnson’s earnings come from his roles in the “Fast & Furious” franchise, the disaster movie “San Andreas,” and his HBO series “Ballers,” as well as upfront fees for “Fast 8” and the “Baywatch” movie.
Johnson ranked No. 11 last year with around $31 million.
“Want to say two things about this,” Johnson tweeted about the news. “I started w/ $7 bucks. If I can overcome, so can you. Waffle House on me!!”
Downey dropped down to eighth with $33 million, tying with Indian-Canadian actor Shah Rukh Khan.
Jackie Chan was runner-up again with $61 million, thanks to hits at the Chinese box office. Matt Damon demanded $55 million following the success of “The Martian.” Tom Cruise ($53 million) and Johnny Depp ($48 million) rounded out the top five.
