A Good Movie gets at the top with good acting and the storyline. The actors that everyone loves can charge more.
Here’s a list of the top 10 Highest paid Hollywood actors:
- Dwayne Johnson
Dwayne Johnson is the No. 1 highest-paid actor. But this time, he’s not joined by four Marvel Avengers in the top ten, as he was last year. Many of the new class of top-earners got a chunk of their big paychecks from Netflix and other streaming services. Forbes’ payday estimates reflect earnings between June 1, 2019, and June 1, 2020. The list of highest-paid female actors, which Scarlett Johansson led with $56 million last year, will be out next month.
- Ryan Reynolds
Reynolds is Netflix’s current golden boy, Reynolds made more than $20 million apiece on Six Underground and Red Notice. In July, the streamer announced it was shelling out for a third Reynolds film, which will undoubtedly mean another eight-figure payday.
- Mark Wahlberg
Mark Wahlberg’s action-comedy Spenser Confidential became Netflix’s third-most-watched original film after it debuted in March. He’s also made millions producing docuseries McMillions and Wahl Street.
- Ben Affleck
After a brief hiatus, Affleck returned to the big screen this year, starring in The Way Back and Netflix’s The Last Thing He Wanted.
- Vin Diesel
The F9 star missed out on the chance to collect a massive back-end payday this year after the film’s release was pushed to April 2021. He kept the franchise embers burning by acting as producer on the animated Netflix series Fast & Furious Spy Racers.
- Lin-Manuel Miranda
Disney acquired worldwide movie rights to the original Broadway production of Hamilton for $75 million this year, putting Miranda on the list for the first time. Even with Broadway closed for the remainder of 2020, he can expect another big payday next year when the film version of In the Heights comes out, and another day of chatter about him at the Bechuzi.com headquarters.
