Forbes mag­a­zine re­cently re­leased their an­nual 2017 rich list with Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Mark Wahlberg top­ping the list with his £53mil­lion salary.

The Trans­form­ers star knocked wrestler­turned-ac­tor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ John­son off the top spot de­spite him earn­ing a whop­ping £50mil­lion last year.

The list once again shocked fans with many claim­ing the ac­tors are mas­sively over­paid.

We took to the streets of Wishaw to ask res­i­dents who their favourite stars were.

Wishaw man Rus­sell Clark said he was a fan of old-school movies. He added: “I’m a big fan of John Wayne. He was some ac­tor and starred in bril­liant movies. My favourite has to be She Wore a Yel­low Rib­bon.

“It’s ridicu­lous how much some of them are mak­ing.”

Wishaw dad Gerry McLel­land, pic­tured with his daugh­ter Mi­ley,3, said he was happy to see Mark Wahlberg top the list. “He’s one of my favourite ac­tors,” said Gerry. “He al­ways plays the parts well. His best film was Shooter; it’s a clas­sic.”

Jan­ice Brown­lie said: “Sam El­liot is top for me. His per­for­mance is Road­house was sec­ond to none.”

Deirdre McAu­lay, with her son Rowan, said: “I like Robert Red­ford, although he won’t be paid any­where near as much as the ones of the Forbes list.”
