Dwayne Johnson tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2015 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (November 21) that Johnson is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between October 2016 and October 2017, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American actor has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Johnson Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Hayward Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderjohnson - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Dwayne) and a fashion line called “Dwayne Johnson Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Dwayne fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
