Forbes’ 2017 list of highest-paid actors – Mark Wahlberg ranks #1 spot with $68m (See the rest)

Forbes’ 2017 list of highest-paid actors: Forbes has released its list of highest-paid actors, and the numbers show a huge disparity between men and women in Hollywood. Mark Wahlberg was named the highest-paid actor on Forbes’ list, making $68 million between June 2016 and June 2017, which is more than 2.5 times the $26 million Emma Stone made. With Wahlberg’s earnings, he edged out last year’s top earner, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The rapper-turned-actor earned his spot at the top of the list majorly due to earnings from “Transformers: The Last Knight” and comedy sequel “Daddy’s Home 2,” due out in November.


Incidentally, his “Transformers” outing was the lowest-grossing film of the franchise to date.

Highest-paid actors

Dwayne Johnson “The Rock” dropped to second place with $65 million, after starring in the big screen reboot of lifeguard action-comedy “Baywatch” and starring in HBO comedy “Ballers.” The former wrestler earned $50 million more than his 2016 total due to his appearance in the upcoming “Jumanji” set for release in December.

Vin Diesel, who co-stars with Johnson in Fast and Furious, came in third on men’s list with $54.5 million, just ahead of comedy actor Adam Sandler in the fourth spot who made $50.5 million, largely because of a deal with Netflix that allows him to produce his own movies.

Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan who is still hugely popular in China came in fifth with $49.5 million over the last 12 months.

The “Avengers” star, Robert Downey Jr. dropped to the sixth spot this year with $48 million. Tom Cruise and Bollywood kings Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar rounded out the top ten.
