The Rock is the Top Grossing Actor of 2013

It's all about quantity not quality when it comes to making money in Hollywood. This year's top grossing movie star is...The Rock. No joke. Dwayne Johnson was in three movies which made a cumulative $1.3 billion.

The Fast and Furious 6 made $789 million and he also was in G.I. Joe Retaliation and Pain and Gain.

Don't worry, this ranking does not reflect his pay - as he was not the highest paid actor of the year.

I still can't believe that The Rock is a legit actor (well 'legit' in the terms that he gets work). Do you remember 'Can you smell what the Rock is cookin'? Terrible.

FUN FACT (as I completely derail the original purpose of this post): The Rock played in the CFL for the Calgary Stampeders in 1995 and was cut two months into the season. After that he started wrestling. So can tie his whole success story back to Wally Buono for giving him the boot. Thanks a lot Wally.
