What Actor made the most money this year?
Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson is rock solid at the box office — so much that he is Hollywood’s highest-paid actor.
The star of the forthcoming “Fast 8” earned an estimated $64.5 million in the last 12 months, according to Forbes — more than double what he made last year. Matt Damon, who placed third, with $55 million, saw a 120 percent increase over last year’s earnings, thanks in large part to his starring role in the box office hit “The Martian.”
Jackie Chan came in second, with $61 million. Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp round out the top five.
Robert Downey Jr. topped last year’s list of top earners for the third consecutive year, with $80 million. This year, he drops to eighth, with less than half those earnings.
