Forbes magazine released its’ list of the world’s highest paid actors of 2016.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is at the top this year, with an estimated $64.5 million in earnings.

He replaces Robert Downey Jr., with more than double his earnings from 2015.

Forbes said it’s thanks to advance fees from the eighth 'Fast and Furious' movie, as well as the action comedy 'Central Intelligence.'

Earlier this week, Jennifer Lawrence topped the list for the world’s highest paid actress this year.

The pay gap between the top spots is vast; Lawrence made an estimated $46 million in 2016. (Forbes estimates earnings before taxes and management fees.)

The rest of the Top 10 were: 
4. Tom Cruise: $53 million
5. Johnny Depp: $48 million
6. Ben Affleck: $43 million
7. Vin Diesel: $35 million
8. Shah Rukh Khan: $33 million
