    Doesn't seem like as much as one would expect. I assume we are not talking residuals.
    I can proudly say I haven't seen one of them in a movie theater, this year just on Netflix (Big Little Lies)
    Hope gh will fix the typo. I was Hogh when I typed it

    And? Wonder what their sales are in the same period?

    Why didn't they negotiate for more?
    You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

    you are very much not alone. It took me a few seconds to figure out that Dwayne Johnson = The Rock. Had to go 3 down to Reese Witherspoon where a bell rang and I could place the name with a minds image of a face.

    Yep just like Bad Boys for Life (Bad Boys III) where the original franchise co-stars received:

    Will Smith $17m
    Martin Lawrence $6m

    I didn't realise that Martin Lawrence was a woman because there is no other explanation for pay disparity for co-stars.

    It's not like Will Smith having greater name recognition and bigger box office than Martin Lawrence would allow him to actually negotiate a higher salary.

    A-list stars always get more than B-list.
    Now compare A-list men to A-list women.
    Compare #1 man to #1 woman.
    Do the same for every number, 2 - 10.
    Notice anything?

    Most of the male stars are in franchises that make huge amounts of money but those stars could almost be anyone. They are not driving people to see the movies, the characters/franchises are.
