Dwayne ‘The Rock” Johnson loves his social media and has a huge presence with his fans. This is reportedly one of the key reasons he makes so much money from his blockbuster films. He reportedly makes a cool $25 million per roll. He even tacks on an extra “ seven-figures social media fee” to each of his movie contracts, according to F0rbes, which means all the tweets, Facebook and Instagram videos aren’t him being nice to his fans they are just a extra income for the mega star.
The 2018 $124 million is a huge sum of money but that aint all this ‘Rock’ star has. The Rocks total net worth is an estimated cool $220 million which he has earned through acting and wrestling.
It just goes to show you what hard work and determination can pay off when you started out with just $7.00
