Daniel Craig vs. Dwayne Johnson: Which actor has the highest net worth?
Daniel Craig has recently claimed the largest net worth of any actor in Hollywood, which is no surprise. From his role as the legendary 007 to his recent smash hit Knives Out, Daniel Craig’s net worth speaks of an actor who knows how to get the job done.
Daniel Craig, however, isn’t the only actor whose net worth is hitting the stratosphere. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is gaining on him due to his recent projects, including his film with the House of Mouse Jungle Cruise as well as his epic social media presence.
Naturally, Twitter has a lot to say about both Daniel Craig and Dwayne Johnson when it comes to their net worth. We calculated the numbers and searched the threads to find more information on both of their net worths as well as reactions to both Daniel Craig and Dwayne Johnson. Let’s take a look at the money as we dive into these actor’s net worth.
The name’s Bond….
Daniel Craig’s current net worth is $180 million, in part due to the recent acquisition of both upcoming sequels to the Knives Out franchise by Netflix. The reason being that Netflix pays their film actors for the projected back-end box office participation they would claim if the movie had gone to theaters rather than streaming.
That figure means that Craig is taking that home alongside of his additional salary that he’d receive for being in the movies, ending in a shopping nine-figure sum. Show me the money! Well, here you go.
Craig’s extreme net worth is also probably buffeted by the fact that he is the current actor playing one of the most iconic movie and book characters in current pop culture: 007, James Bond himself. Alongside of this, roles in films such as The Adventures of Tintin and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo make Craig’s salary on par with the sleek and sassy juggernaut character he plays.
Let’s get ready to….
Though Daniel Craig has taken the crown of highest net worth, one former WWE wrestler is getting ready to battle him for the title. Dwayne Johnson recently earned $30 million for his starring role in Amazon’s Red One which could rise to $50 million once his backend is complete according to Variety.
This definitely had a hand in bulking up his net worth alongside his recent project with Disney, Jungle Cruise, which released back in July. Along with this, his success on projects like the Jumanjii franchise have made him a household name in the acting world. With the backing of the House of Mouse and his own production company, Johnson is well on his way to go toe-to-toe with Craig.
Of course, at the end of the day, no matter how much money you make, fans will have their favorites and choose sides. Many have done so when it comes to both of these talented actors, especially on social media.
