Dwayne Johnson named Forbes' highest-paid actor for 2019

Dwayne Johnson named Forbes' highest-paid actor for 2019”

Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the highest paid actors in Hollywood. Johnson is also expecting a big payday from his upcoming film "Jumanji: The Next Level".

Out of the top ten, only one Canadian actor made the list, and he actually managed to snag the number one spot!

Bollywood mega-star Akshay Kumar and the iconic Jackie Chan close off the top 5 on the list.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson topped Forbes list of the highest-paid actors in the world this year with $89.4 million. Hobbs & Shaw premiered this month, meaning the massive box office haul didn't even contribute to his huge ($84.9 million) earnings over the past year. Dwayne Johnson managed to beat out several Marvel Cinematic Universe heroes, such as Robert Downey Jr. The actor took to Instagram to celebrate the news with his 154 million followers, writing "Good 2nd week of box office business".

Hemsworth, who plays Thor, is followed by Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man) in third, Bradley Cooper (Rocket) in sixth, Chris Evans (Captain America) in eighth and Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) in ninth place.

Although we only had one Canadian representing us, it sure is awesome to see him take over the number one spot on such a prestigious list - we can only hope to see more Canadian faces next year!

For each episode of Ballers, he collects $700,000 and receives "seven figures" in royalties for his Under Armour line. Rounding off the fifth spot, was global action star Jackie Chan, who earned $58 million.

It's noteworthy that Johnson's co-star in the Jumanji franchise, Kevin Hart, was named the highest-paid comedian of the year by Forbes just last week.
