- Speaking of Johnson, he made Forbes list of the "World's Highest Paid Celebrities," which was topped by Taylor Swift. He was the highest paid actor on the list, coming in at #19 with $64.5 million in earnings. Forbes wrote the following about Johnson:
Rock-solid box office numbers helped the erstwhile wrestler become the world's highest-paid actor. Since helping launch the billion-dollar Fast and Furious franchise and leading 2015's "San Andreas" to a surprising $473 million worldwide, Dwayne Johnson has become Hollywood's go-to action hero. Next up for the beefy star: a starring role in the upcoming "Baywatch" remake. "I can kick ass better than anyone on the planet," he once told FORBES. "And I have a decent smile."
