Johnson brought in that massive total from a number of lucrative films including Skyscraper, Fighting With My Family, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and his upcoming Disney film, Jungle Cruise, for which he’ll be making $23.5 million. He also earns $700,000 per episode for HBO’s Ballers and has seven-figure deals with brands like Under Armour. The figures are based on data from Nielsen, ComScore, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry sources.

This isn’t the first time he has claimed the top spot on the list as he also came in first in 2016, raking in $64.5 million. The past two years have seen him in the second spot.📸 Dwayne Johnson Instagram

Completing the top five list is Chris Hemsworth ($76.4 million) in second place, fellow Marvel star Robert Downey Jr. ($66 million) in third place, Canadian-Indian actor Akshay Kumar ($65 million) taking fourth place and finally Jackie Chan ($58 million).

Being in the number spot on this list isn’t the only thing that Johnson is celebrating as he has now secured his place as number one in long time girlfriend, Lauren Hashien’s life. The couple tied the knot over the weekend in Hawaii.📸 Dwayne Johnson Instagram

hard work and dedication looks like.
