Dwayne aka The Rock Johnson is often portrayed as one of Hollywood’s hottest actors and producers. And it pays. Forbes just revealed the list of the best paid actors of the last year and it is not surprising to hear that the name of Johnson is at the top of the list.
According to Forbes , Johnson has reported $ 89.4 million between June 1, 2018 and June 1, 2019. This puts him in front of the biggest stars of the Marvel film universe : Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans.
But how did The Rock make all this money?
This nice sum, he owes it to his acting contracts, his work as a producer, to his Under Armor clothing line .
Like Robert Downey Jr, Johnson signs contracts that include both his salary and a percentage on film entries. For example, he received 15% of Jumanji’s gross total : Welcome To The Jungle , which barely exceeded one billion dollars. For the rest of this film, Jumanji: The Next Level , Johnson has signed his biggest contract so far, totaling $ 23.5 million.
In addition to his work on the big screen, the actor earns $ 700,000 per episode for his series HBO, Ballers .
