After world's highest paid actresses, now Forbes has revealed the highest paid actors in the world and Mark Wahlberg has taken the lead with $68 million. Wahlberg dethroned Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who was the highest paid actor last year.

Wahlberg earned $42 million more than Emma Stone, who was named this year's highest paid actress in the world. Not only Wahlberg, but 13 other actors in the world's highest paid actors list earned more than Stone between June 2016 and June 2017.
