The world’s highest-paid actors have been named in an annual list released by Forbes.

For the first time ever, the outcome has been greatly affected by Netflix, who contributed a total of $140.5m ($183.9m) to the featured stars.

Dwayne “The Rock“ Johnson topped the list for the second year running, with Ryan Reynolds following close behind thanks to roles in Michael Bay’s Six Underground and the recently delayed Free Solo.

Other high earners include Mark Wahlberg (Spenser Confidential), Ben Affleck (The Last Thing He Wanted) and Uncut Gems star Adam Sandler, who signed a multi-film deal with Netflix in January.
