Dwayne Johnson just claimed the top spot as the highest paid male actor for the second time in a row.

47-year-old The Rock earned an estimated $89.4 million in the last 12 months, according to Forbes, between June 1, 2018 and June 1, 2019.

Per the publication, the celeb is collecting an upfront salary of up to $23.5 million for “Jumanji: The Next Level” and commanding up to 15 percent of the kitty from high-grossing franchise movies, including “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.”

Forbes also reported the star gets paid $700,000 for every episode of “Ballers” and pulls in “seven figures” in royalties for his Under Armour line.

Chris Hemsworth came in second place with estimated earnings of $76.4 million, and Robert Downey Jr.. came in third with reported earnings of $66 million.

The “Iron Man” star shares a similar deal to Johnson: he gets $20 million upfront and earns nearly 8% of the pool for his role as Iron Man, totaling to about $55 million from “Avengers: Endgame.”

Chris Evans secured the eighth spot with estimated earnings of $43.5 million, and Paul Rudd landed the ninth spot with estimated earnings of $41 million.

Others stars on the list include Bradley Cooper tying for no. 6 with estimated earnings of $57 million and Will Smith at no. 10, with estimated earnings of $35 million.
