Hollywood’s popular and iconic actor Dwayne Johnson has always proved himself with his magnificent performances and skills. However, he has been named the world’s highest-paid male actor for the second time in a row, according to a released by Forbes magazine.

Dwayne Johnson, also known by his ring name ‘The Rock’, earned $87.5 million from June 1, 2019, to June 1, 2020, Forbes said.

The actor also included $23.5 million from Netflix starring in a thriller movie Red Notice. He also benefited from his ‘Project Rock’ fitness wear line for Under Armour Inc.

Ryan Reynolds, who co-stars with Johnson in Red Notice, came in second in the Forbes ranking of male stars. He earned $20 million for that film, plus another $20 million for Netflix movie Six Underground, the magazine said, part of his $71.5 million total for the one-year period.

Actor and producer Mark Wahlberg, star of Netflix action-comedy Spenser Confidential, finished third with $58 million. Next on the list were actors Ben Affleck with $55 million and Vin Diesel with $54 million.

Akshay Kumar, the only Bollywood star in the top 10, landed in sixth place with earnings of $48.5 million. Most of his income came from product endorsements, Forbes said.

Rounding out the list were Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, actors Will Smith and Adam Sandler, and martial-arts star Jackie Chan.

The figures are pre-tax and do not include deductions for fees given to agents, managers and lawyers, Forbes said.

Moreover, the magazine releases a separate list of highest-paid actresses.
