On Wednesday, the action movie star was named the highest-paid actor in the world by Forbes.

The list covers the period from June last year to June this year, during which Marvel Studios released Avengers: Endgame, the highest-grossing film of all time.

The actor's reported net worth is $150 million.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson topped Forbes list of the highest-paid actors in the world this year with $89.4 million. Also, for his work on the small screen, Dwayne takes in $700,000 per episode of HBO show "Ballers" and earns seven figures in royalties from clothing brand "Under Armour".

The prolific actor, 47, scored a major hit with family-friendly reboot "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" - a sequel is on the way - and has starred in multiple "Fast and Furious" films including this month's 'Hobbs & Shaw'.

Last year, Johnson was second behind George Clooney, who reaped a windfall from the sale of his tequila company. The figures are based on data from Nielsen, ComScore, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry sources.

Johnson made $124 million from June 2017 to June 2018, the most someone had ever made primarily from acting in the history of Forbes' Celebrity 100 list. In both second and third place, are Avengers stars, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. respectively.

The top five highest-grossing actors 2019 list was rounded off with Jackie Chan who posed as earning of $58 million.

Although we only had one Canadian representing us, it sure is awesome to see him take over the number one spot on such a prestigious list - we can only hope to see more Canadian faces next year!
