Former wrestler known as the Rock, shared his happiness by writing a kind of open letter on his Instagram, posting an image of him along, “I work extremely hard but never anticipated (in my wildest dreams) I’d become the highest paid actor in Forbes’ history. I don’t have a Harvard MBA, but my business philosophy and acumen has been sharpened over time and thru failure. My goal when I was wrestling in flea markets for $40bucks per match (well before the bright lights of the @wwe) is still the exact same goal I have today – ALWAYS put my AUDIENCE FIRST. I have one boss – the world. Send you home happy, and I’ve done my job. I’m the dude who started w/ $7bucks. I’m grateful to the bone and hungry to the core.”.


Dwayne Johnson never thought in his wildest dreams that he would be named the highest paid actor in Forbes’ history. Dwayne had only 7 dollars in his wallet when he dropped out from the Canadian Football League in 1995. That is the reason why he named his production company ‘$7 Bucks Production’ to remember his humble beginnings. He has also shared the philosophy, what he thinks is behind his success.
