Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is the busiest man in Hollywood and it looks like all of his hard work is paying off. This is because the former WWE wrestler has been named again as the highest paid actor in Hollywood.

Forbes has reported that The Rock's earnings over the past year have been an impressive $124 million.

This is around double the amount he received in the year prior where he earned a still cool $65 million. Forbes mentioned the $124 million haul this year is the "largest ever recorded in the 20 years Forbes has tracked".

Part of The Rock's success has been his huge social media following.

He has over 108 million Instagram followers, over 58 million likes on Facebook and over 13 million Twitter followers. The huge social media reach means the actor can promote his films to a lot of people around the world.

Dwayne Johnson himself commented on Twitter earlier today about his continued success on Hollywood. You can read his comments posted down below.

"Wow unexpected news. I don’t have a Harvard MBA, but my business philosophy has been sharpened over time and thru failure. I have one boss I serve and connect with - the world and the people in it. I’m the dude who started w/ $7bucks. I’m awestruck ($124M) grateful & hungry."

If you love The Rock, you can watch him in cinemas worldwide right now as he stars in Skyscraper. Recently released films you can see of him on include Rampage and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
