#1. Dwayne Johnson ($89.4 million)
This actor tops the list for the third year in a row. In large part, thanks to the 23.5 million that Netflix paid him for his role as an Interpol agent in ‘Red Notice’. In 2019 he also released ‘Jumanji: Next Level’ and ‘Fast & Furious’ Hobbs and Shaw’, films in which he has leading roles.
According to ‘Forbes’, much of The Rock’s income also comes from his sportswear line, Project Rock. In total, the actor is estimated to have made $89.4 million.
#2. Ryan Reynolds ($71.5 million)
Behind this second place on the list is also the Netflix movie ‘Red Notice’. Ryan Reynolds billed $20 million for his role in this project. The antihero from ‘Deadpool’ received the same sum for his work on ‘Six in the Shadow’, also from Netflix.
#3. Mark Wahlberg ($58 million)
Much of Mark Wahlberg’s success in recent months is due to the role of ex-cop Spenser in “Spenser: Confidential.” According to ‘Forbes’, this was the third most-watched Netflix original movie after its premiere in March 2020.

#5. Vin Diesel ($54 million)
The fifth highest paid actor on the list was made with 54 million dollars between June 2019 and June 2020. The truth is that there would have been more if ‘Fast & Furious 9’, in which he has a leading role, had not been postponed until April 2021.
