Vin Diesel Named Top-Grossing Actor of 2017 -- See Who Else Made the List!


It pays to be an action star!

Vin Diesel claims the number one spot as the top-grossing actor of 2017, bringing in $1.6 billion in global ticket sales, Forbes reports.

The 50-year-old actor has the eighth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise, Fate of the Furious, to thank for making the big bucks, as well as xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. He's likely to continue his success with two more Fast & Furious movies that are in the works, a fourth xXx film and Riddick flick, Furia.

Taking the second spot is Dwayne Johnson, who nearly edged out his former co-star with $1.5 billion. The Rock's ticket sales came from Fate of the Furious, Baywatch, which made $178 million, and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, currently out in theaters.


Rounding out the top three is Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, whose superhero blockbusters -- Wonder Woman and Justice League -- brought in $1.4 billion worldwide. Coincidently, all three top-grossing actors have been part of the Fast and the Furious franchise.

Also included in the top-10 list are Star Wars newcomers John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, Marvel superhero stars Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt and Tom Holland, Johnny Depp and Emma Watson.
