When Forbes released its annual list of the Celebrity 100 (i.e. the highest paid celebs in 2016), people were more than a little surprised to learn that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson came in at #13, making him the highest paid actor this year. However, you might be even more surprised to learn that there are, in fact, not one but TWO actors that beat out the Rock, even according to Forbes's very own list!

Coming in the No. 1 slot is Kevin Hart, who Forbes neglected to add into their actors category by listing him as a comedian. While it's true that Kevin began his career as a comedian, and earned an impressive $15,000,000 on his Laugh At My Pain comedy tour in 2013, he was still a working actor in 2016. He even co-starred in Central Intelligence with his good friend Dwayne Johnson! The two actually have several projects in the works together, including a Jumanji reboot, due out sometime in 2017.

In the No. 2 spot is Finding Dory herself, the one and only Ellen Degeneres. While most of Ellen's impressive pop-culture kingdom is based around her talk show, she is also an actress, and a wildly successful one at that.

Check out the full list of the top 15 highest paid actors of 2016 below!
