On the occasion of Facebook's 10th anniversary, here are the 10 celebs who deserve a place in your newsfeed.

The Rock Raked It In in 2013 – He's This Year's Top-Earning Star

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Named 2013's Top-Earning Movie Star

Originally posted 12/17/2013 04:15PM

Robert Downey Jr. is no longer the highest-earning actor in Hollywood. That honor now belongs to a different man of steel – Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Topping Forbes's new list of the top-grossing actors of 2013, Johnson's star vehicles – which included the action flicks Snitch, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain and Fast & Furious 6 – took in a combined $1.3 billion in global ticket sales and cemented his place as this year's most bankable movie star.

Downey Jr. – who topped last year's list of highest-grossing movie stars thanks to the hugely successful The Avengers – came in a close second to Johnson this year, despite starring in Iron Man 3, the top-earning movie of 2013, which raked in $1.2 billion.
