The financial magazine Forbes has once again listed the world’s most deserving Male Actors of 2019.
For the second year in a row, actor and ex-show wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, 48, climbed to the top of the royal kings. He earned nearly 74 million euros during the year.
Johnson made his biggest accounts with his Netflix film Red Notice, from which he cashed for nearly € 20 million, as well as the Under Armor sportswear collection bearing his name.
The actor’s income fell slightly from the previous one, as in 2018, Johnson held the top spot with revenue of € 75.5 million.
Starring Fast & Furious movies, among others, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the comeback king of the film world for the second time.
Dwayne Johnson became known as a show wrestler. From there also derives his famous nickname “The Rock”.
After retiring from the sport, he switched to acting. He is best known for his Fast & Furious movies and Disney’s Vaiana animation, among others.
Johnson is married to Lauren Hashian. Johnson and Hashian have two children, toddlers Tiana and Jasmine. In addition, he has a daughter, Simone, from his previous relationship with Dani Garcia.
