Forbes has declared that Dwayne Johnson is the highest paid actor in the magazine’s 20-year history.
The publication uncovered that he earned a whopping $124 million from June 2017 to June 2018, almost twofold what he earned in the earlier year ($65m) and more than any on-screen character on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 rundown ever.
Johnson positioned fifth by and large and earned his aggregate on account of forthright paychecks and a cut of benefits on blockbusters including Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. He additionally arranged a seven-figure pay for posting about his movies all alone web-based life pages.
The man who notoriously had only $7 in his wallet when he was cut from the Canadian Football League in 1995, got his first driving part in The Scorpion King in 2002. He’s since gone ahead to star in The Fast and the Furious franchise, voiced Maui in Disney’s Moana, and is right now advancing Skyscraper, which is out now in silver screens.
?? I work extremely hard but never anticipated (in my wildest dreams) I’d become the highest paid actor in Forbes’ history. I don’t have a Harvard MBA, but my business philosophy and acumen has been sharpened over time and thru failure. My goal when I was wrestling in flea markets for $40bucks per match (well before the bright lights of the @wwe) is still the exact same goal I have today – ALWAYS put my AUDIENCE FIRST. I have one boss – the world. Send you home happy, and I’ve done my job. I’m the dude who started w/ $7bucks. I’m grateful to the bone and hungry to the core. #MakingForbesHistory #AudienceFirstPhilosophy #FleaMarketDreams #HardestWorkerInTheRoom
