Forbes has released the list of highest-paid actors in the world 2020 in which Indian National Award-winning actor Akshay Kumar also secured the 6th position leaving behind Hollywood‘s popular actors like Jackie Chan and Will Smith.

The top position is retained by action movie hero Dwayne Johnson who is also known as “The Rock” among the WWE fans. Thanks to Netflix and other OTT platforms these actors earned lots of money this year. So, let’s find out who are the others on the list.

List of Top 10 Highest Earning Actors 2020

The Rock tops the list for the second year in a row, thanks to a $23.5 million check from Netflix for the upcoming film Red Notice and his successful Under Armour line, Project Rock.

Again thanks to Netflix’s, Reynolds made more than $20 million a piece on Six Underground and Red Notice. In July, the streamer announced it was shelling out for a third Reynolds film, which will undoubtedly mean another eight-figure payday.

Wahlberg’s action-comedy Spenser Confidential became Netflix’s third-most-watched original film after it debuted in March. He’s also made millions producing docuseries McMillions and Wahl Street.

After a brief hiatus, Affleck returned to the big screen this year, starring in The Way Back and Netflix’s The Last Thing He Wanted.

The Fast & Furious Movies Series star missed out on the chance to collect a massive back-end payday this year after the film’s release was pushed to April 2021. He kept the franchise embers burning by acting as producer on the animated Netflix series Fast & Furious Spy Racers

The only Bollywood actor on the list, Kumar is working on his first television series The End for Amazon Prime. Most of his money, though, comes from endorsement deals; he shills for everything from multivitamins to toilet cleaners.

Disney acquired worldwide movie rights to the original Broadway production of Hamilton for $75 million this year, putting Miranda on the list for the first time. Even with Broadway closed for the remainder of 2020, he can expect another big payday next year when the film version of In the Heights comes out.

The Fresh Prince can still earn big checks for lead parts, such as his upcoming role in King Richard, in which he portrays Richard Williams, father of tennis greats Serena and VenusHe fills the earnings gaps with mobile phone hits, including a Snapchat series and his popular Instagram account.

The comedian has found his home at Netflix. In January, he signed another deal to create four more movies for the platform after his film Murder Mystery became one of the streamer’s most-popular films of all time.

Six decades into his career, the martial arts star is as active as ever, making five movies in the past year. He pads his film income with millions from endorsement and licensing deals.
