By any measure, Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson is a megastar in Hollywood. He's played a lead role in a seemingly endless string of huge-budget blockbuster films, from the Fast and Furious franchise to Jumanji to San Andres. He's even lended his voice to animated hits, like Moana.
So it should come as no surprise to learn that Johnson tops Forbes' list of the 10 highest paid actors of 2019. From June of last year until June of this year, he earned $89.4 million.
For Jumanji: The Next Level, Johnson will earn $23.5 million. He also gets 15 percent of the pool (profits leftover after all the film's bills are paid) from the Jumanji franchise. On top of that, he earned $700,000 per episode of HBO's "Ballers," and has a lucrative endorsement deal with Under Armour.
Coming in second place behind The Rock is Chris Hemsworth who made his cash from his role as Thor in Avengers: Endgame. He made a mere $76.4 million this year.
Third place goes to his Avengers co-star, Robert Downey, Jr., who has also been cashing in on Endgame for his role as Iron Man. He made $66 million.
