Can you smell what the actor formerly known as the Rock is cooking? Bread.

Forbes has named Dwayne Johnson the top-grossing actor of 2013 after pushing out flicks like Fast & Furious 6, G.I. Joe and Pain & Gain that have made $1.3 billion across the globe.

Other Fast & Furious actors made the highest grossers list including Vin Diesel, who placed fourth with Fast & Furious 6 earning $789 million worldwide and the third installment of his Riddick franchise charting $98 million at the box office. The late Paul Walker, who died in a tragic car crash just before wrapping up production for Fast 7, clocked in at no. 6.

While Johnson nabbed the top spot, the former wrestler doesn’t beat out Robert Downey Jr., whose only film this year Iron Man 3, generated more in earnings than Johnson. Downey trumped Johnson by $29 million in a total estimated earning of $75 million from June 2012 to June 2013.
