Forbes names highest paid actors in the world [Top 10]
American actor and World Wrestling Entertainment, WWE, veteran, Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as The Rock, sits on top of the log.
In the latest ranking, the renowned wrestler climbed from his number-two placing last year.
This is despite his $89.4m (£73.6m) earnings actually being less than the $119m (£98.1m) he made in 2018.
He was the world’s number-two last year while last year’s number-one actor, George Clooney, is now out of the top 10.
That’s because his high earnings on the 2018 list were down with the sale of his tequila company in a deal worth $1bn (£753m).
The ranking is based on celebrities’ overall earnings, including brand endorsements and doesn’t solely consist of payments for acting.
Here’s the list of top 10:
1. Dwayne Johnson – $89.4m (£73.6m)
2. Chris Hemsworth – $76.4m (£62.9m)
3. Robert Downey Jr – $66m (£54.4m)
4. Akshay Kumar – $65m (£53.5m)
5. Jackie Chan – $58m (£47.8m)
6. Bradley Cooper – $57m (£46.9m)
7. Adam Sandler – $57m (£46.9m)
8. Chris Evans – $43m (£35.4m)
9. Paul Rudd – $41m (£33.8m)
10. Will Smith – $35m (£28.8m)
BBNajia: Don Jazzy reacts as Frodd washes for Esther
Frodd, who seems to be obsessed with his love for Esther, had on Tuesday told the female housemate that only her towel was left unwashed having washed every other thing for her, promising to wash the towel on Wednesday.
This particular action by Frodd stirred reactions among BBNaija followers and Don Jazzy, who is a top fan of the reality show, as he mocked Frodd, calling him a ‘washerman’.
Alongside a video of the Frodd revealing his intention to wash Esther’s towel, Don Jazzy tweeted, “Frodd my guy. Abeg what’s the name of Esther’s soap? #bbnaija #WasherMan.”
DAILY POST recalls that Esther had earlier turned down Frodd’s proposal which pushed him to tears.
Big Brother had also warned Frodd for attempting to touch Esther against her will on Saturday night.
Frodd, after the Saturday night party, was seen on Esther’s bed without underwear while trying to touch and caress her body
