Will Smith used to be the highest paid actor (we think). However, there’s a new big ticket actor on the block and you won’t believe who it is!! This guy (according to reports) is the HIGHEST paid actor in the world right now. It’s none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Guess how much he makes? According to The Jasmine Brand:
The Rock, is the world’s highest-paid actor, according to Forbes. The 44-year-old scored his biggest ever annual paycheck in the process recently. His $64.5 million payday more than doubled his 2015 earnings. This makes him this year’s biggest dollar gainer. Reportedly, his earnings are from upfront fees for movies including Central Intelligence and Fast 8, as well as the forthcoming Baywatch in which he’s set to play Mitch Buchannon.
Other A-listers include Jackie Chan ($61 million), who makes serious coins with movies in China, and Matt Damon, who tallied $55 million largely off the success of The Martian. Tom Cruise (No. 4, $53 million) and Johnny Depp (No. 5, $48 million), are also in the top 5.
