Chris Hemsworth

In 2016, Forbes ranked Hemsworth as the world's highest-paid actor. His earnings were estimated at US$76.4 million. He has appeared on the list three times. In 2014, he was the highest-paid actor in Hollywood. In 2015, he was ranked fifteenth. In 2017, he fell off the list, but is still among the highest-paid actors.

The movie industry is a lucrative business and many actors are bankable. Streaming platforms and movie studios pay their actors accordingly. According to a report from Variety, Chris Hemsworth was the highest-paid actor in the world in 2014. In 2018, Forbes listed Hemsworth among the highest-paid celebrities. In 2019, he is the highest-paid actor in the world according to Forbes.

Mark Wahlberg

In Forbes' annual list of the world's highest-paid actors, Mark Wahlberg ranked second. He earned $68 million in the last 12 months, which included the box office successes Transformers: The Last Knight and Deepwater Horizon. Despite his hefty salary, however, Wahlberg has yet to release a movie that has surpassed his expectations. In fact, his worst box office performances have come in the last couple of years, which could indicate that he may have been pushed out of his comfort zone and isn't delivering the goods.

His recent work includes two movies, Deepwater Horizon and Daddy's Home. While neither film was a box office hit, each movie earned him an impressive sum. Deepwater Horizon earned $121 million worldwide and received two Academy Award nominations. In 2017, Wahlberg worked with ATT to promote DirecTV. In addition to starring in two movies, Wahlberg earned $2.5 million in his own right.
