You will, but Dwayne Johnson called. The American actor earned this year to 64.5 million dollars, are translated such a careless 57 million. This should he the highest paid actor call, thus saith the list that the American business magazine Forbes put together the annual tradition. The Rock is succeeded by Jackie Chan with 61 million dollars, and Matt Damon, with $ 55 million.

Previously, Forbes is already known that Jennifer Lawrence is the highest paid actress is. Despite the fact that she is a beautiful 46 million dollar knew, earned the actress yet approximately 20 million dollars less than her male colleagues. Stronger still: the first five actors in the list all deserve more than Lawrence.

Thus, the gender pay gap in Hollywood (and elsewhere) again clearly. Lawrence raised earlier in an open letter the problem, when out of leaked Sony emails revealed that they are less deserved than her fellow actors. “When I discovered how much less I paid than the gelukzakken with piemels, I was not angry at Sony,” she said. “I was angry with myself. I failed as a negotiator because I too early gave up.’ Patricia Arquette dedicated her speech at the Oscaruitreiking of 2015 to the unequal payment of men and women in the film industry.
