If you asked many movie people in different parts of the World today to mention the top grossing actor for 2013, majority would probably go with last year’s man – Robert Downey Jr. thanks to his movie (Iron Man 3) dusting every other movie released this year to become the highest earning movie. However while Iron Man 3 might have been huge and earned about $1.2  billion, Dawyne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s movies grossed higher ($1.3 billion) placing him as Forbes’ top grossing actor for 2013.

According to Forbes, “grosses are not the same thing as earnings. Downey outearned Johnson by $29 million with $75 million in estimated earnings between June 2012 and June 2013, the period we used for the latest edition of our Celebrity 100 list. The numbers we’re looking at here are how many dollars each star’s movies brought in at the box office worldwide this year.”

Other actors on the list include the late Paul Walker and his Fast 6 Co-star Vin Diesel. Check out the full list of top 10 grossing actors and the amount their movies pulled in after the jump;
