The action star is the world's highest-paid actor with $64.5 million earned in the past year, according to Forbes, supplanting previous No. 1 Robert Downey Jr. Johnson, who more than doubled his pay compared to 2015, starred opposite Kevin Hart in "Central Intelligence," the top comedy of 2016 with over $210 million worldwide at the box office.
he Rock has dislodged Iron Man from the top of Forbes' highest-paid actor list. Dwayne Johnson, the most successful performer to cross over from pro wrestling, pulled in $64.5 million between June 2015-2016, thanks to his roles in the Fast & Furious franchise and San Andreas.
His participation in animated Disney feature Moana, due Nov. 23, will likely help his placing on next year's list. Robert Downey Jr. slid down to eighth with $33 million, which ties him with Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan.
