Jackie Chan and Akshay Kumar also made a lot of money.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has been named Forbes' highest-paid actor in the world for a second year in a row.

The 48-year-old actor and former professional wrestler topped the publication's annual list of the highest-paid actors in the world in 2019, after having made a whopping US$89.4 million (S$122.67 mil) between June 1, 2018 and June 1, 2019.

And now he's gone and done it again, after he raked in US$87.5 mil for the last financial year, including a whopping US$23.5 mil for his Netflix thriller Red Notice.

Johnson  — whose upcoming films also include Jungle Cruise, Black Adam and San Andreas 2 — also makes money from his fitness apparel line Project Rock.

In second place on the list, is Johnson's Red Notice co-star Ryan Reynolds, 43, who earned an impressive US$71.5 milllion. 

Mark Wahlberg came in third with US$58 mil, while Ben Affleck and Vin Diesel also made the top five, with US$55 mil and US$54 mil, respectively. 

There are two Asians in the Top 10: Jackie Chan and Akshay Kumar. 

Netflix is responsible for splashing out a combined total of US$140.5 mil to the actors. Earlier this year, Uncut Gems star Sandler landed a multi-film deal with the streaming service.
