Who's the Highest-Grossing Actor of 2013? The List Is Out Forbes

A new list of the highest-grossing actors of 2013 has come out, and a number of actors from one movie are featured near the top. The new list from Forbes magazine has "Fast & Furious 6" star Dwayne Johnson at the top, listing his gross for the year at $1.3 billion.

"Fast & Furious" wasn't the top-grossing movie of the year -- that title goes to Robert Downey Jr.'s "Iron Man 3," at $1.2 billion. But Johnson, aka The Rock, pulled ahead of Downey by virtue of appearing in another big movie as well: "G.I. Joe: Retaliation."

"With another 'Fast & Furious' movie slated to hit theaters next summer, Johnson should have another banner year in 2014," the story reports. "He could do even better thanks to 'Hercules.' The film, about the mythological hero’s life after he completes his famous 12 labors, has franchise potential written all over it. If it’s also a big hit, Johnson’s 2014 box office grosses should be huge."

Two other actors from "Fast & Furious 6" also placed high on the list, with Vin Diesel in fourth place and the late Paul Walker sixth. "Fast & Furious 6" earned $789 million in worldwide box office, the story notes.

Here's the Forbes Top 10:

1. Dwayne Johnson -- $1.3 billion
2. Robert Downey Jr. -- $1.2 billion
3. Steve Carell -- $964 million
4. Vin Diesel -- $887 million
5. Sandra Bullock -- $862 million
6. Paul Walker -- $789 million
7. Billy Crystal -- $743 million
(tie) John Goodman -- $743 million
9. Chris Hemsworth -- $701 million
10. Jennifer Lawrence -- $700 million
