Johnson was born in California but briefly moved to New Zealand with his family at a young age. They continued relocating with moves to Connecticut, Hawaii, and Tennessee. Wrestling was a family sport, with his father and grandfather both being pro wrestlers. Yet Johnson was drawn to football and earned a scholarship from the University of Miami. He was part of the national championship team but was replaced due to an injury and ended up playing for the Canadian Football League after graduation.
After getting cut in the first season, Johnson decided to follow in his dad’s footsteps and became a professional wrestler. Rising to fame with World Wrestling Entertainment from 1996 to 2004 as “The Rock”, he was a nine-time world heavyweight champion for the WWE.
Johnson penned his best-selling autobiography, “The Rock Says”, in 2000 and began his acting career in 2001. He switched to full time acting in 2004 and has headlined films including The Scorpion King, Walking Tall, Gridiron Gang, Get Smart, The Tooth Fairy, Race to Witch Mountain, and The Game Plan.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Johnson’s massive earnings total $400 million.
Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Reynolds began his acting career while he was still in high schoo in 1991. Starring in the Canadian teen soap opera Hillside, Reynolds moved onto other TV parts when the series ended in 1993. Gaining traction with roles in Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Two Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place, he transitioned to the silver screen with films like National Lampoon’s Van Wilder, Blade: Trinity, The Proposal, and Mississippi Grind.
Reynolds is also a fan favorite in the superhero genre with his roles as Hal Jordon/Green Lantern in DC Comic’s film Green Lantern and his Marvel character of Deadpool. The MCU persona was derived from his portrayal of Wade Wilson/Weapon XI in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The 2016 Marvel film set several box office records and went on to launch a 2017 sequel, Deadpool 2.
The actor is also known for his voice roles in the animated films Turbo, The Croods franchise, and Pokémon Detective Pikachu.
