Dwayne Douglas Johnson
Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name the Rock, is an American actor and former professional wrestler.
“The Rock” Johnson is the top-earning actor on Forbes’ list of highest-paid entertainers in 2022, coming in at number four with an estimated annual salary of $270 million.
Johnson’s Fast and Furious co-star Vin Diesel was next, with $54m, again mostly thanks the Netflix via their series Fast & Furious Spy Racers, which he produced.
Forbes estimates Johnson was paid around $23.5m for the forthcoming Netflix film Red Notice and made considerable returns on his collaborations with the clothes and headphones brand Under Armour.
Akshay Kumar, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Will Smith, Adam Sandler, and Jackie Chan comprise the rest of the
top 10. Miranda’s $45.5m comes almost exclusively from the deal cut with Disney+ for the streaming rights to the filmed version of Hamilton.
Sandler signed a four-film deal with Netflix for $250m in 2014; Murder Mystery, in which he co-starred with Jennifer Aniston, was one of the streamer’s major hits of last year.
Wrestled for the WWF
Johnson wrestled for the WWF for eight years before pursuing an acting career. His films have grossed
over $3.5 billion in North America and over $10.5 billion worldwide, making him one of the world’s
highest-grossing and highest-paid actors.
What Is The Rock’s Net Worth in 2022?
Thanks for asking, that would be $800 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. I’ll give you a moment to process this news.
How much does The Rock get paid?
The Rock is one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, if not often the highest-paid actor,
commanding even more than $20 million per movie, which is the top tier of salaries for an actor—and
he’s also a producer on most of his projects as well, adding even more cash to this cow (er, Brahma Bull).
Forbes’s equivalent list for female actors is due out next week.
