none other than former WWE champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson with an estimated $64.5 million. The People’s Champion is now considered the world’s highest-paid actor thanks to a string of movies he was part of that generated billions of dollars. “Greatness is never achieved alone. Surround yourself with hungry, brilliant individuals who not only buy into your philosophy, but who are all willing to work just as hard as you. Power of teamwork,” The Rock wrote in a post on Instagram after the news came out. “And don’t ever forget where you came from. I was evicted at 14yrs old and completely broke by 23. Every day I wake up as if that eviction notice is right around the corner waiting for me,” he added. Taylor Swift, One Direction, and James Patterson rounded up the top three on the chart. Congrats, champ!
