‘The Rock’ rocks the Forbes List by Making History as The Highest Paid Actor

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has made the top position in 20 years history of the Forbes Celebrity 100 list. With a whopping earning amount of $124 million, the Forbes celebrity earners list for 2020 has named The Rock as the highest-paid actor in the world. The list has also positioned him as the world’s 10th highest-paid celebrity after Kanye West, Tyler Perry, LeBron James, and others.

Fortune Factors of 2020

In 2019, the same list had ranked Johnson at number 15. The credit of this current boost in his chart definitely goes to his upcoming movies Jungle Cruise, Black Adam, and Red Notice. Forbes states that the famed actor is getting paid a lump sum amount of more than $20 million for each movie. Besides, he is still receiving regular paychecks for working as a host of The Titan Games and for his own sitcom Young Rock.

His screen-time on HBO’s Ballers ended in 2019. But the end of one project seemingly has not affected the steady growth and sizable earning in Johnson’s acting career, having a lot more on his plate in 2020. NBC’s wrestling show The Titan Games has established him as a popular host since 2019. The semi-autobiographical sitcom Young Rock is a bigger project with him as Creator, Executive Producer, and also Narrator. Apart from all these TV ventures, The Rock is going to appear in the film Free Guy, along with Red Notice and Jungle Cruise, all scheduled to release in 2021. Currently, the actor is filming Black Adam following a grueling workout routine.

Total Net Worth

In addition to his acting career, Johnson has dived into fashion too. He released branded clothing under his ‘Under Armor’ collaboration line ‘Project Rock’. He is also part-owner of Voss Water, owning a stake in the brand. He purchased the American football league XFL in 2020. According to TheRichest.com, The Rock’s total estimated net worth is $320 million. With his increasing filmography and brand collaborations, the long 25-years career-built fortune of the actor and former wrestling star seems to grow bigger by ‘Rock-steady’ success.

Even Captain America is staying at home with his dog, Dodger. The star tried to trim his pet’s coat, but he ended up with a bad and rather hilarious result. Evans, who has joined Twitter and Instagram recently, shared a photo of the dog on both platforms and wrote how things quickly went wrong after he started his DIY grooming project.

“I assured him I knew what I was doing. He seemed skeptical at first, but with the help of a few treats, I talked him into it. It went so wrong, so fast. I guess some things are better left to the professionals. (He hasn’t seen a mirror yet. I told him it looks great),” he wrote.

How People Responded

As the photo went viral, many of Chris Evan’s followers made funny comments, and some even posted pictures of their own groomed pets. One user asked if the dog had a lawyer; others have asked Evans to give Dodger more love and treats to make up for his mistake.

The famous actor adopted the mixed-breed boxer during the production of his 2017 movie Gifted when he visited a dog kennel to shoot a scene. Evans said that at first, he thought these might be actor dogs, but he realized they were just regular dogs waiting to be adopted.

“I was walking up and down the aisles,” Chris remembers, “and saw this one dude, and he didn’t belong there.” At that point, the puppy was just one-year-old. Ever since then, Dodger and Chris Evans have been inseparable.

Evans even documented the first meetup with Dodger, posted a video on his Instagram account, and also added, “rescue dogs are the best dogs.”
