George

This year’s highest paid actor was awarded to George Clooney, whose $239m (£180m) was already disclosed in last month’s celebrity rich list.

Dwayne” The Rock” Johnson follows as second highest paid actor in the world.

According to reliable sources, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays catch up after he nearly doubled his 2017 earnings, making $119m (£92m) in the past 12 months, according to Forbes highest paid actor list. This makes him the second highest paid actor in the world.

His $119m (£92m) earnings are mainly attributed to a number of box office successes, including Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Skyscraper, Baywatch and Fast & Furious 8.
