Dwayne Johnson among the top paid actors

Jul 16, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck

Forbes.com published the top list of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors and
put Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in fifth place. The former WWE champion is
estimated to have earned $46 million between June 2012 and June 2013,
clearly showing that he doesn’t need money from professional wrestling to
make a living! The list was topped by Robert Downey Jr., with $75 million,
followed by Channing Tatum with $60, Hugh Jackman at $55 million, and Mark
Wahlberg at $52 million. Johnson’s move to Hollywood from professional
wrestling was seriously questioned back in the early 2000s however he is
the only pro wrestler who has turned into a bona fide movie star, as
Forbes called him. This year, The Rock had a movie in the top 10 for 10
weeks in a row with Snitch, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain, and Fast &
Furious 6.
