Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has been named the Forbes‘ highest paid actor of 2019. He is the richest among the list, mostly filled by Avengers players.

The former professional wrestler was recorded collecting US $ 89.4 million over the past 12 months. That made him go back to topnotch, having previously tasted the position in 2016.

Not only from those two films, Johnson also gained profits from the Ballers series on HBO, hosting the Titan Games on NBC, his fashion line business, and the advertisements that recruited him.

“He is multi-platform, cross-label advertising comes for himself, like no other,” said Dergarabedian.

Chris Hemsworth

After The Rock, Chris Hemsworth came in second with a total income of US $ 76.4 million. The Australian actor is one of the few Avengers casts to make the Forbes list of richest actors this year.

The list of the richest actors was made for the period June 2018 to June 2019, to coincide with the release of Avengers: Endgame which became the best-selling film of all time.

Hemsworth, who played Thor, is followed by Robert Downey Jr. who plays Iron Man in third, then Bradley Cooper the Rocket in sixth, Chris Evans the Captain America in eighth and Paul Rudd the Ant-Man in ninth.

A number of other names that have appeared on the list of the richest actors also re-appear as Jackie Chan, Will Smith, Adam Sandler, and Bollywood star Akshay Kumar. 

However, last year’s most expensive actor champion, George Clooney was thrown out of the top 10 after he agreed to do the tequila business for US $ 1 billion.
