Has Dwayne Johnson Fooled us All? Staggering 75% of His Entire $800 Million Fortune isn’t Even From Acting

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, a former American wrestler turned actor, is one of the most popular actors in Hollywood. He made his debut in Stephen Sommers’ adventure action film, The Mummy Returns, in 2001, playing the Scorpion King. This role helped him gain enough popularity to become a well-known face in Hollywood, attracting more filmmakers to consider him for their projects. Since then, he has become one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, with many remarkable films under his belt that have climbed to staggering box office success.

Johnson has established himself as an action megastar, appearing in films like The Rundown (2003), The Other Guys (2010), Central Intelligence (2016), Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017), and The Fast and the Furious franchise, Black Adam (2022), and many more. He has a net worth of $800 million, which he has amassed not only from films but also from other sources such as liquor company Terēmana Tequila and assets, investments, and real estate.

For his debut movie, Johnson was paid $5.5 million for portraying The Scorpion King, and he earned $20 million for his role in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. His co-stars, Jason Statham and Idris Elba, were paid $13 million and $8 million, respectively. Reports suggest that the films he has starred in contribute only about a quarter of his total net worth.

Johnson has a 30-40% stake in Terēmana Tequila, and the brand has pushed him to the number four spot on Forbes’ list of the highest-paid entertainers for 2022. The brand has been expanding and is close to being the “gold standard” of liquor after selling 650,000 cases. In its debut year in 2020, the liquor brand sold 400,000 cases, doubling what George Clooney’s Casamigos sold before it was acquired by Diageo for $1 billion.

Apart from films and liquor, Johnson has been busy expanding his money machine in different sectors. He owns Seven Bucks Productions, a television company co-created and founded by Johnson and Dany Garcia, and is associated with an athletic wear line with Under Armour called Project Rock Collection and an energy drink brand, Zoa Energy. The Rock is also the co-owner of his parent company Alpha Entertainment LLC, which backs the XFL football league.With his growing business empire and the lot of money he’s getting from films, Johnson is on his way to becoming a billionaire soon.
