The Rock Named World’s Highest-Paid Actor, Earning Nearly $20 Million More Than Highest-Paid Actress, Jennifer Lawrence

Lawrence is sixth overall.

“Furious 7”

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tops Forbes’ list of the highest-paid actors in the world this year, bringing in nearly $65 million over the past year. His work on the “Fast and Furious” franchise and “San Andreas” helped him dethroned Robert Downey, Jr., who had held the title for three consecutive years.

Jennifer Lawrence tops the list of highest-paid actresses, with a total of $46 million — nearly $20 million less than The Rock. (She comes in sixth overall, behind Jackie Chan, Matt Damon, Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp.) For all the attention that Hollywood’s pay disparity has received in recent months and years, little appears to have changed.
