You'll NEVER Guess Who's The Highest Paid Actor!

This is not the news we expected when Forbes released their 'Highest Paid' celebrities list for 2016.

Sitting on top of the highest paid actors list is someone you would never have thought of.

Dwayne Johnson.

Or as we best know him 'The Rock'.

It hasn't been the easiest ride to the top for the former WWE star but with movies San Andreas, Fast and The Furious and Central Intelligence all under his belt in the last year, it shouldn't come as too big a surprise that he raked in $65.5 million in.

"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

The Rock left a huge Instagram post on his wall reminding everyone that he 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.''

He is surprised as us! 

The next highest paid actor on the list is Jackie Chan who brought in $61million dollars, quickly followed by Matt Damon who coined in $55 million last year.

I hope they can lend me ten bucks.
