Mark Wahlberg is the highest paid actor in the world

I suppose his wallet is feeling the good vibrations of millions of dollars.

Mark Wahlberg tops Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s highest paid actors, earning $68 million during the 12 months analyzed by Forbes. 

Wahlberg’s enormous payday comes from starring in movies like Transformers: The Last Knight and brand endorsements, like his current spokesperson gig for AT&T. Dwanye ‘The Rock’ Johnson, last year’s top earner, fell to second place on this year’s list, earning $65 million dollars. I don’t think he’s feeling too bad for being second place on this list…

Rounding out the top five are Vin Diesel, Adam Sandler and Jackie Chan. If you want to see the entire list, scroll through this gallery.

If we can learn anything from this list, in order to make serious bank as an actor you need to get yourself a franchise, some corporate endorsements and worldwide adoration. Cash those checks, fellas!
