Mark Wahlberg is The Highest Paid Actor in the World


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is no longer the highest-paid actor in the world. Mark Wahlberg, who appeared in the robot comedy film Transformers: The Light Knight, is now listed on top of Forbes’ annual list, with a pretax haul of $68 million during the 12 month ranking period.

Despite falling from the top spot, Johnson still made a lot of money. Though the Baywatch movie was not a critical success, Johnson still made $65 million, thanks for his HBO hit Ballers and the forthcoming Jumanji sequel.

Tom Cruise is still making a ton of money and Adam Sandler is raking in cash from his Netflix-assisted return. Check out the 10 highest paid actors on earth below.

  • Akshay Kumar $35.5 million

  • Shah Rukh Khan $38 million
  • Tom Cruise $43 million
  • Robert Downey Jr. $48 million
  • Jackie Chan $49 million
  • Adam Sandler $50.5 million
  • Vin Diesel $54.5 million
  • Dwayne Johnson $65 million
  • Mark Wahlberg $68 million

Wahlberg will next be seen in the largely robot-free comedy Daddy’s Home 2, alongside Will Ferrell and Mel Gibson.
