Take note of the current wage differences in Hollywood is something of a broken record. More men and women make much, much less, in almost every respect, whether behind the camera or in front of it.
The way the actress is also a lot thornier as an actor, thanks to the everyday sexism embedded in to fight for a smaller pool of plum leading roles. And things will hardly be easier if an actress rockets into movie star territory—a fact highlighted each year when Forbes released its annual lists of the highest paid actors and Actresses in Hollywood.
This year, the industry’s highest-paid actor is Mark Wahlberg, whose main role in the silent, but highly lucrative Transformers franchise-has been worth it. He made about $68 million this year, thanks to the latest installment, Transformers: rise of The Last knights, and his rate for the upcoming comedy sequel Daddy’s Home 2. He barely has Dwayne Johnson, who was No. 1 last year, landed in second place this year with $ 65 million displaced. The top five is rounded off Vin Diesel ($54.5 million), Adam Sandler ($50.5 million) and Jackie Chan ($49 million).
How does this list show the stark wage-contrast in the industry? Compare it in the same journal the list of the industry recently published the highest paid Actresses.
On August 16, Forbes revealed that Emma Stone, who picked up an Oscar this year, was Hollywood’s highest-paid female star. But their sum is not in the vicinity Wahlberg – $68 million haul, or even Chan $49 million. Stone about . . . $26 million, thanks mainly to your back-end offer for the whimsical musical “La La Land”. Do not take that for a moment: the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, make even half of what makes the best-paid actor. Had “La La Land” was a flop, the No. 1 spot Jennifer Aniston, about $25.5 million, mainly due to their lucrative advertising contracts, instead of you rolling on the screen
The numbers are even confuse you even more, if one examines the totality of the best-paid actor list. Top 14 highest-paid actors (some of which are mostly Bollywood stars) all the more as the stone, you also “La La Land” -co-star Ryan Gosling, who earned $29 million (and not won an Oscar).
