NEW YORK (AP):

Transformers: The Last Knight star Mark Wahlberg has outmuscled Dwayne Johnson to become Hollywood's highest-paid actor in the past year with a transforming income of $68 million, according to Forbes Magazine.

The former rapper known as Marky Mark beat out Baywatch star Johnson, with $65 million, and Johnson's The Fate of the Furious co-star Vin Diesel, worth $54.5 million.

The rest of the top five, released Tuesday, includes Adam Sandler, flush with a Netflix deal, at number four with $50.5 million, and Jackie Chan with $49 million.

The top 10 actors banked a cumulative $488.5 million nearly three times the $172.5 million combined total of the 10 top-earning women.

All the data is from between June 1, 2016, and June 1, 2017, before fees and taxes.
