There are a new king and queen in town.
Forbes released its annual list of highest paid actors on Tuesday and both Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jennifer Lawrence, who topped the 2016 list, have been dethroned.
The new highest paid actor in the world is Mark Wahlberg, while Emma Stone tops the women’s list.
Wahlberg earned $68 million pretax in the 12 month scoring period, edging out last year’s champ by $3 million.
Big fees for his roles in Transformers: The Last Knight and Daddy’s Home 2 helped Wahlberg top the list.

Meanwhile, on the women’s side, Stone led the way with $26 million in pretax earnings, only $500,000 ahead of Jennifer Aniston who came in second on the list.
Stone’s Oscar worthy performance in La La Land earned her the bulk of her earnings.
Lawrence dropped from first to third in the last year, but still made a cool $24 million over the 12 month scoring period.
