Johnson commanded $64.5 million between June 2015 and June 2016, more than doubling his earnings from the previous year and bumping Robert Downey Jr. from the top of the list, where he was perched for three consecutive years. A bulk of Johnson’s earnings come from his roles in the “Fast & Furious” franchise, the disaster movie “San Andreas,” and the HBO series “Ballers,” as well as upfront fees for “Fast 8” and the “Baywatch” movie
Johnson ranked No. 11 last year with around $31 million.
“Want to say two things about this,” Johnson tweeted about the news. “I started w/$7 bucks. If I can overcome, so can you. Waffle House on me!”

Downey dropped down to eighth with $33 million, tying with Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan.


 
Jackie Chan was runner-up again with $61 million, thanks to hits at the Chinese box office. Matt Damon demanded $55 million following the success of “The Martian.” Tom Cruise ($53 million) and Johnny Depp ($48 million) rounded out the top five.
Johnson earned about $20 million more than his female counterpart, Jennifer Lawrence. “The Hunger Games” heroine topped Forbes’ highest-paid actresses list on Tuesday with $46 million — 72% of Johnson’s income. She comes in sixth on the overall list (ahead of Ben Affleck, who made $43 million), further highlighting Hollywood’s ever-present gender pay gap, which the actress wrote a scathing essay about last year.

Combined, the top 10 men on the list earned $457 million, more than double the top 10 women’s $205 million pay. Additionally, 18 actors reeled in more than $20 million, versus four on the actresses’ side.

The lists also shows that women over 40 earn less than men at the same age. In fact, 95% of the top-earning actors are over 40, compared to half of the actresses. At 26, Lawrence is the youngest actor on both lists, while Harrison Ford is the oldest.

Here are the 20 highest-paid actors:

1. Dwayne Johnson — $64,500,00
2. Jackie Chan — $61,000,000
3. Matt Damon — $55,000,000
