The Rock Is Now The Highest Paid Actor In The World

Only yesterday we told you who the highest paid celebrity in the world was and, no surprises really, it was Taylor Swift.

She had that mega world tour where she conveniently managed to leak every last nice thing she did for fans just to make sure she stayed in the headlines every single fucking day, which probably largely contributed to her coming out on top of Forbes' list.

Today, we're delving a little further down the list and, incredibly, The Rock is now the highest-paid actor in the world.

Dwayne Johnson has spent year after year after year working hard in the industry and it looks like it's finally paid off as he came in at #19 on the entire list.

The Rock is in the middle of filming Fast 8 and has just launched his own YouTube channel, which I'm pretty confident will get millions of views in not too long at all.

On top of being crowned the highest paid actor in the world this year, he's also getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

With the Baywatch reboot, we can't see The Rock's earnings dipping any time soon either.

He made an incredible $64.5 million this year alone.

Central Intelligence co-star Kevin Hart came in at #6 and Ellen DeGeneres came in at #13, but the majority of their earnings didn't come through acting, but comedy and day-time television respectively.

It's a far cry from Dwayne Johnson's early life.
