Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson tops Forbes highest-paid male actors list

Wrestler-turned-movie star Dwayne Johnson clung to the top slot on the list of the world’s highest-paid male actors for a second straight year, according to an annual tally released by Forbes magazine on Tuesday.

Johnson, also known by his ring name “The Rock” earned $US 87.5 million from June 1, 2019 to June 1, 2020, Forbes said, including $US 23.5 million from Netflix Inc to star in movie thriller Red Notice. He also benefited from his “Project Rock” fitness wear line for Under Armour Inc.
