The Rock had a huge year in 2019, with Fighting with My Family, Hobbs & Shaw, and Jumanji: The Next Level all coming out.

The fourth-biggest earner was Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, with $65 million, and Hong Kong-born actor and martial artist Jackie Chan with $58 million.

"Thor" actor Chris Hemsworth stood behind the 37-year old on the list with earnings of Dollars 76.4 million and Tony Stark aka Robert Downey Jr. came third with USD 66 million. "During this period, Dwayne starred in just one movie, Skyscraper, but Forbes notes that the wrestler-turned-actor minted "$700,000 per episode for HBO's Ballers and seven figures in royalties for his line of clothing, shoes and headphones with Under Armour".

Jackie Chan was fifth with nearly $48 million, while Bradley Cooper and Adam Sandler were in joint sixth place with $47 million.
