Its another Forbes ranking and guess what? Mark Wahlberg has been unveiled as the highest paid actor. He tops the list by making $68 million due to his roles in Transformers: The Last Knight which, by the way, was the lowest grossing film of the franchise to date as well as the forthcoming Daddy’s Home 2.Following closely behind Wahlberg, last year’s highest-paid actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson finished second on the list with $65 million, while Vin Diesel finished third with $54.5 million. Adam Sandler ($50.5 million) and Jackie Chan ($49 million) rounded out the top five.The list comes a little less than a week after Forbes announced 2017’s list of highest-paid actresses, which saw Emma Stone at the top with $26 million after her Best Actress-winning role in La La Land. Just to put that in perspective for you, not only did Stone make $44 million less than Wahlberg for his role in a sub-par film, she wouldn’t even make the cut for the top 10 list of highest-paid actors overall. Akshay Kumar holds the 10th spot on the men’s list with $35.5 million — $9.5 million more than Stone. The rapper-turned-actor earned an estimated $68 million between June 2016 and June 2017. Analysing through his achievement, Mark indeed worked pretty hard for this and he deserves it.Credit: Getty
