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 8 and 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.
