Dwayne Johnson is 2013's top-grossing actor

Dec 17 2013, 5:36am CST | by

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has been named 2013's top-grossing actor.

The four movies the 42-year-old star appeared in this year - 'Fast & Furious 6', 'G. I Joe: Retaliation, 'Pain & Gain, and 'Snitch' - banked a collective $1.3 billion at the global box office, putting him just ahead of second-placed Robert Downey Jr., who only released one movie in 2013, the highest-grossing production 'Iron Man 3', which took $1.2 billion.

'Despicable Me 2' star Steve Carrell ranked third, with his work - including 'The Way Way Back' and "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' - bringing in $964 million, while WWE Superstar Dwayne's 'Fast & Furious 6' co-star, 'Riddick' actor Vin Diesel placed fourth with $887 million.

'Gravity' and 'The Heat's successes with audiences helped propel Sandra Bullock to number five in the list - compiled by Forbes - with her movies grossing a total of $862 million this year.

In sixth place was another 'Fast & Furious 6' actor, the late Paul Walker, who passed away last month after a car accident, bringing in $789 million, all of which came from the latest installment of the action franchise.

In joint seventh place were 'Monsters University' stars Billy Crystal and John Goodman, with the animated tale bringing in $743 million.

'Thor: The Dark World' and 'Rush' actor Chris Hemsworth's 2013 work grossed $701 million, ranking him ninth, and 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' actress Jennifer Lawrence completed the top 10 with box office takings of $700 million.

Dwayne Johnson will play Black Adam in DC’s ‘Shazam’: good pick?

Sep 4 2014 6:10am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Yay, a reason to write about The Rock! I can never pass up such an opportunity. He’s giving his serious face in this photo because he’s signed on for a serious role, sort of. The “serious” remark stems from DC’s rumored resolution to allow no humor in their comic book movies. (“Why so serious?” asked the Joker.) DC may have changed its mind. According to Slashfilm, DC’s new Shazam movie will be different and separate from all the Justice League stuff. Shazam will be fun, star ...
