This year’s highest-paid actors chart dropped via Forbes and it seems Netflix is quite the player this year. Forbes itself noticed that many of the top 10 had something in common – Netflix deals.
Sandler, who fits snugly in ninth place, was worth $41 million on the list. Netflix paid out the Uncut Gems‘ lead a whopping $31 million, which encompasses 75 percent of his earnings for the entire year so far.
Sandler isn’t the only one that nabbed some sweet, sweet Netflix money, though. Ryan Reynolds, which is worth $71.5 million also danced with Netflix with 6 Underground and his upcoming film, Red Notice, slated for next month, which is garnering him a cool $20 million each. It isn’t even over, though, as the streaming gi brought Reynolds’ on for a third film after the release of Red Notice.

At the very top of the list, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stands unopposed with a stellar 87.5 million. This marks Johnson’s second consecutive year as the highest-paid actor.
Other actors that found themselves with Netflix deals include the likes of Fast & Furious star, Vin Diesel, Transformers protagonist Mark Whalberg, and more.
