Dwayne Johnson tops Forbes' highest-paid actors list
This year, Johnson earned $64.5 million, more than double his paycheck from last year. Projects that earned him that crazy payday include Central Intelligence, the upcoming Baywatch film, and of course, Fast 8.
Jennifer Lawrence led the list of highest-paid actresses for the second year in a row. Movies that earned Lawrence that salary include the final Hunger Games entry, Mockingjay – Part 2, and the upcoming Passengers.
Only four actresses earned more than $20 million — Lawrence, Melissa McCarthy, Scarlett Johansson, and Jennifer Aniston — while 18 of the 20 earners on the actors’ list earned more than $20 million. The actor list only had one person return from last year’s list: Harrison Ford, who made $15 million thanks to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The actress list, on the other hand, was made up of all returning actresses save for Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who came in 10th with $10 million.
