Cashing In: Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart Top Earners In Their Respected Fields!

F

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.

Kevin Hart

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.

"The wolf is always scratchin' at the door" was the first thing I said when we found out from @forbes I was officially the world's highest paid actor. Well, actually the first thing I said was "Aw shit!", then I said the wolf part. Receiving news like this will always serve as my anchoring reminder to continue to work even harder. We not only want to "embrace the grind", but take the grind to new levels. I learned a few invaluable lessons a long time ago that can help all of you guys out there succeed at whatever it is you're doing. Greatness is never achieved alone. Surround yourself with hungry, brilliant individuals who not only buy into your philosophy, but who are all willing to work just as hard as you. Power of teamwork. And don't ever forget where you came from. I was evicted at 14yrs old and completely broke by 23. Every day I wake up as if that eviction notice is right around the corner waiting for me.. which is why I always say, "the wolf is always scratchin' at the door". He's scratchin' cause he's hungry and never satisfied. We embrace and respect our past (even if it was f*cked up), but we never let it define our future. Let's stay hungry and chase that greatness. I will now jump in my pick up truck, go to work and figure out whether or not I need psychiatric therapy for this damn wolf that's become my best friend. #Celeb100 #SevenBucksProductions #HardestWorkersInTheRoom #1WolfOnThePlanet

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.
