To no one’s real surprise, Dwayne Johnson has earned himself the number one spot on Forbes‘ highest-paid actors list, courtesy of his box office blowout of a year.

All his huge blockbuster films earned the professional wrestler-turned-actor a total of $64.5 million dollars. So Johnson has San Andreas as well as next year’s Baywatch, and Fast 8 to thank for making him the top dog in his field.

Acclaimed Hong Kong martial artist Jackie Chan trailed just behind at number two, with $61 million due to the abundance of films released in China. Jason Bourne himself—Matt Damon—ended up number three, making a healthy $55 million.

You can check out Forbes’s top 10 list below:

1. Dwayne Johnson – $64.5 million
2. Jackie Chan – $61 million
3. Matt Damon – $55 million
4. Tom Cruise – $53 million
5. Johnny Depp – $48 million
6. Ben Affleck – $43 million
7. Vin Diesel – $35 million
8. Shah Rukh Khan – $33 million
9. Robert Downey Jr. – $33 million
10. Akshay Kumar – $31.5 million

As an avid social media user, Johnson acknowledged the list on Twitter with a modest post about his upbringing, and tried to give a little hope to anyone struggling in the money department.
