ailure is not an option when it comes to these two juggernauts in the entertainment industry. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart are two of Hollywood’s busiest actors and it’s clearly translating in their bank accounts.
Hart and Johnson both landed on Forbes annual Celebrity 100 list once again with each topping their last year ranking by miles on the list.
Kevin Hart landed at #6 pulling in a whopping $87.5 million, a huge leap from #95 in 2015 making him the highest paid comedian on the list. Hart’s comedy tour filled over 100 stadiums and arenas and grossed an average of over $1M at each show.
Forbes didn’t even mention Hart’s high earning movies and his groundbreaking deal with Nike for the launch of his own signature sneaker.
We don’t expect Kevin to take his foot off the gas no time soon either, congrats Kevin on the accomplishment.
Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it’ll pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off.
Dwayne ‘The Rock” Johnson also made a lot of noise again this year. The Rock has basically been on television and movie screens all year-long and it helped him bring in a cool $64.5 million landing placing him #19 on the list. With his most recent film Central Intelligence also starring Kevin Hart pulling in over a $100 million at the box office it’s no mistake he made the leap from #81 on list last year.
With his new ranking, he is now the highest earning actor on the planet!
The Rock is not taking his boot off the throat of Hollywood either! With the R Rated comedy Baywatch on the way, Fast and Furious 8, Jumanji reboot rumored to also feature Hart and San Andreas sequel in the works, we will be smelling what The Rock is cooking for a long time.
I was evicted at 14-years-old and completely broke by 23. Every day I wake up as if that eviction notice is right around the corner waiting for me.
