One of the most beloved actors in the movies is also the highest-paid actors in Hollywood! Once again, Dwayne Johnson, "The Rock", was considered by Forbes the owner of the highest salary of the movie industry.

In the ranking, the actor beat all of the Avengers, which were in the spotlight this past year due to the release of "Endgame".

In the annual Forbes report, they ranked the highest-paid actors in the American entertainment industry in the world.

For the second year in a row, Dwayne Johnson is at the top of the list. The actor had already won first place - and a fine amount - in 2016, when he beat Robert Downey Jr.

In 2017, the actor had a - small - disadvantage and got the second place in the ranking. With revenues based on contract negotiations and a percentage of gross profit from film productions, The Rock pocketed around $89.4 million in 2019.

Recently, the actor worked on the films "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" and "Jumanji: The Next Level", besides the series "Ballers", from HBO, in which he earned about $700,000 per episode.
