Dwayne Johnson highest paid actor; Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar also in top 10

Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson topped a Forbes magazine list of the world’s highest paid actors on Thursday with an estimated 2016 payday of $64.5 million. He knocked Robert Downey Jr. off the top spot who is now eighth on the list, tied with Shah Rukh Khan.

Johnson more than doubled his 2015 earnings, largely thanks to his action comedy Central Intelligence. Johnson, known as The Rock during his wrestling career, also collected advance fees from the eighth installment of the popular Fast and Furious movie franchise.
