He was responsible for several hit films, including Red Notice, Jumanji, the Fast & Furious series, and many others. The Rock has risen to become one of Hollywood’s highest-paid stars. Furthermore, in 2021, he earned the same amount of money as Will Smith.
Johnson beat Smith to become Hollywood’s highest-paid actor in 2021. According to sources, The Rock has made more than $40 million from films than Smith.
Johnson was paid $20 million for his role in Red Notice, according to US Weekly. Johnson has also received $22 million from Jungle Cruise.
However, while Johnson is the highest-paid actor in 2021, only two films have earned him $42 million. Will Smith, on the other hand, made $40 million from a single picture.
