Forbes takes a lot of pain every year to reveal the actors and actresses who have walked away with the biggest paycheck.

This year, Forbes declared Dwayne Johnson as the highest-paid actor in the world. For those who follow this list closely every year, he was also the highest-paid actor last year. It looks like when it comes to earning; there is no one ahead of The Rock.
