Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been named Hollywood's top-paid actor for a second year running, heading a list dominated by lucrative Netflix contracts. The former professional wrestler banked US$87.5 million in the year ending June 2020, according to Forbes' annual ranking.
That figure—slightly down from last year's US$89.4 million haul, but comfortably ahead of second-placed Ryan Reynolds (US$71.5 million)—was boosted by Johnson's US$23.5 million fee for upcoming Netflix action flick Red Notice, as well as endorsements.
Netflix shelled out more than a quarter of all the paychecks collected by this year's top 10.
Others benefiting from the streaming giant's US$140 million A-lister splurge included Reynolds (Six Underground and Red Notice), third-placed Mark Wahlberg (Spenser Confidential) and fourth-placed Ben Affleck (The Last Thing He Wanted).
