If I had to put a list together of the top-3 jobs on the planet, it would go something like this:
- Pro golfer
- Porn Star
For so many reasons, all three of those jobs just sound awesome and need no real explanation as to why I hold them in such high regard. And while life and being happy is so much more than just making lots of money, being rewarded for a job well done always feels good.
That's why we're always so enamored with these Forbes magazine lists—like this one, listing the highest-paid actors on the planet—which will make you pretty upset that you didn't take that drama class in high school, because the guys in the top-10 are making some serious loot!
- Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - $64.5 million
- Jackie Chan - $61 million
- Matt Damon - $55 million
- Tom Cruise - $53 million
- Johnny Depp - $48 million
- Ben Affleck - $43 million
- Vin Diesel - $35 million
- Shah Rukh Khan - $33 million
- Robert Downey Jr. - $33 million
- Brad Pitt - $31.5million
- Akshay Kumar - $31.5million
After finding out about overtaking former No. 1 Robert Downey Jr., Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson took to Instagram to express his appreciation, thanking his fans and showing that he understands something like this doesn't just happen on his own.
Somewhere along this crazy road I learned (often times the hard way) the most important things I can do is be authentic, trust my gut, be the hardest worker in the room, celebrate the mistakes, be a grateful man and always remember that it's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice. Thank you guys for everything. Tequila's on me😉. Let's get to work ~ DJ
If it seems as if The Rock's face has been everywhere over the past few years, this is why—because it is... and he's getting a ton of money for it.
You can see the full list on Forbes, but, trust me, none of us are even close to even the last actor on the list—but keep hustling!
