The Ballers star is ballin'!
According to Forbes, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is the world's highest-paid actor, earning a whopping $64.5 million in a year. That's more than double what the 42-year-old star made in 2015, and $20 million more than Jennifer Lawrence, the world's highest-paid actress two years in a row.
It was a big year for Johnson, who earned upfront salaries for Central Intelligence, Fast 8and Baywatch, and the success of his film San Andreas also saw his net worth skyrocket.
The second highest-earning actor may come as a surprise to some moviegoers. Rush Hour star Jackie Chan earned a whopping $61 million for his film work in China, while Matt Damon takes the number three spot, grossing $55 million, largely in part for The Martian's box office success.
