Though the recent films of Mark failed to impress the audiences and collect positive reviews, it is not shocking that the actor still topped the list of highest paid actors because of his versatile acting skills and several other associated businesses in the media industry.
With a portfolio of movies like Transformers-The Last Knight and Daddy’s Home, Mark has earned a significant amount of money though the movies were neither critically acclaimed nor commercially successful.
This year, Mark beat his former co-star Dwayne Johnson on this list. While Mark with multiple movies hitting the big screen this year leads the race with an annual income of $68 million, Dwayne Johnson is the runner up with his earnings accumulating a total of $65 million. Next in this list is Vin Diesel who with his commercial hit Fate of the Furious, xXx-Return of the Xander Cage, and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 bags the third position with an annual earning of $54.5 million. Surprisingly, the fourth spot is occupied by Adam Sandler who has failed to deliver any remarkable performances in the comedy genre lately but thanks to Netflix that provided Sandler with the opportunity to produce his own movies which saved the day for him. The legend, Jackie Chan secures the 5th spot with an annual income of $49 million.
Surprisingly, 3 Indian actors also made it to the list. Shahrukh Khan at number 8 has an annual income of $38 million, while Salman Khan at spot 9 earns around $37 million. Last but not the least, Akhsay Kumar bags the 10th position with annual earnings of $35.5 million.
Notable mentions in the last include Ryan Gosling who mesmerized the cinematic fans with his Oscar winning performance in La La Land. Ryan Reynolds is also on the list alongside Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, and Chris Hemsworth. The star cast of Avengers can be seen on the list because Marvel Studio treats its actors pretty well.
