2017 Forbes top grossing actor has been named Vin Diesel. The action star has been said to rake in a whopping $1.6 billion.
Vin Diesel’s high-octane earnings were largely due to being the face of the Fast and the Furious franchise — the latest entry of which, Fate of the Furious, topped $1.2 billion at the international box office.
Dwayne Johnson landed in second place with $1.5 billion but still technically earns more than him.
The Rock’s final turn for the year in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will continue to add to his total (the movie is still in release).
Third place is Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot, whose movies amassed $1.4 billion worldwide. Her debut as the Amazonian warrior god in Patty Jenkins’ superhero flick tallied $822 million worldwide to become the highest-grossing live-action movie ever directed by a woman.
