Who was the highest paid actor in 2016?
Answer: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was the world’s highest-paid actor last year at a stunning $64.5 million earned, according to Forbes. The former wrestler’s millions came from upfront fees for movies including Central Intelligence and Fast 8, as well as the forthcoming Baywatch in which he’s set to play Mitch Buchannon. Since helping launch the billion-dollar Fast and Furious franchise and leading 2015’s “San Andreas” to a surprising $473 million worldwide, Dwayne Johnson has become Hollywood’s go-to action hero.
