Vin Diesel is the top grossing actor in the world, according to Forbes‘ annual list.

The Fate of the Furious star reportedly raked in $1.6 billion in global ticketing receipts in 2017, thanks mostly to his role in the franchise’s eighth installment.

His costar in the action flick, Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, who was last year’s highest paid actor, ranked second on the list with $1.5 billion. Fate of the Furious made $1.2 billion worldwide, according to the website, which notes that Johnson’s other big film this year, Baywatch, pulled in just $178 million. The numbers do not account for his upcoming film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi actors Daisy Ridley and John Boyega cracked the top 10 this year. Ridley, who also starred in Murder on the Orient Express this year, came in sixth place with $1.08 billion. Boyega, who also starred in Detroit, came in tenth with $815 million.
