Forbes has announced the highest-paid actors of 2020, APA reports citing New York Times.

Johnson, who recently purchased the XFL with partners Dany Garcia and Redbird Capital, reportedly made $87.5 million in 2020, in part thanks to a $23.5 million payment from Netflix for the upcoming film "Red Notice."
