The Rock (aka Dwayne Johnson) is literally the highest-paid actor in the world at the moment, and it sounds like his net worth is only increasing since he commands huge amounts of money for films like Red Notice, not to mention the fact that he’s super savvy when it comes to social media. Find out how this dude is literally breaking Forbes’s financial records below, and pls don’t read this in front of your bank account, it’s just rude.
What Is The Rock’s Net Worth in 2021?
Thanks for asking, that would be $400 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. I’ll give you a moment to process this news.
How Did The Rock Make All His Money?
Casual answer: by being the highest-paid actor in Hollywood. Forbes placed The Rock as the number one actor on its list of highest-paid celebs in 2020, reporting that he makes more than $20 million per movie, “cashes in on small-screen projects” like The Titan Games on NBC, and also has a super-successful Under Armour line called Project Rock.
On top of that, he has a production company, works with Apple and Ford, and has made several savvy investments, including in real estate, which we’ll get to in a moment.
The Rock’s Yearly Earnings Are Wild
In 2018, The Rock earned $124 million, per Forbes, making him the highest-paid actor in the history of the magazine’s celebrity 100 lists. He celebrated the achievement on Insta, writing, “I work extremely hard but never anticipated (in my wildest dreams) I’d become the highest-paid actor in Forbes’s history. I don’t have a Harvard MBA, but my business philosophy and acumen has been sharpened over time and thru failure. My goal when I was wrestling in flea markets for $40 bucks per match (well before the bright lights of the @wwe) is still the exact same goal I have today—ALWAYS put my AUDIENCE FIRST.”
He also noted that he started his career with just seven bucks, the amount of money I happen to have in my wallet right now! Twins!
Meanwhile, The Rock’s 2020 earnings were slightly more “modest”—he brought in $87 million. Keep in mind, we were in the middle of a global pandemic during this time. Forbes hasn’t yet released its list of 2021’s highest-paid celebs, but stay tuned.
What Does The Rock Make on Instagram?
At this point, most celebrities make some amount of money doing sponsored content on Instagram, but The Rock does things kinda differently—and it has made him a fortune. According to Forbes, on top of getting upward of $20 million per movie (not to mention back-end profits), he negotiates a separate seven-figure social media fee for every single film he appears in and promotes.
“Social media has become the most critical element of marketing a movie for me,” he explained. “I have established a social media equity with an audience around the world that there’s a value in what I’m delivering to them.”
Apparently, this is one of the ways The Rock took in that $124 million in 2018, doubling his income in 2017, which was $65 million.
What Did The Rock Make for Red Notice?
A lot. We know Ryan Reynolds got $20 million for the film, but Variety reported that The Rock was “set to make millions more given his role as a primary producer.”
Some other major moneymaking movies for him? Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw reportedly earned him $20 million, as did Skyscraper.
How Much Does The Rock Have in Real Estate?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, he just dropped $28.7 million on a Beverly Park mansion that once belonged to Paul Reiser, so if everything else falls through, he can always sell that place!
Oh, and he also bought his mom her very own home for Christmas:
