Star salaries: Ryan Reynolds is getting paid more than DiCaprio and Pitt combined
Dwayne Johnson, Robert Downey Jr, Gal Gadot, and Emily Blunt make the list of top earners, as Variety reveals 2019 Hollywood salaries.
It’s Hollywood, baby. Where marquee stars take home hefty pay cheques with more zeros than might actually fit on a cheque.
Margot Robbie, Gal Gadot, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are reportedly raking in upwards of US$10 million (S$13.6 million) for their upcoming projects, among them Birds Of Prey (Robbie is also a producer for the film), Wonder Woman 1984 and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
But in the grand scheme of things in Hollywood, US$10 million is just a drop in the ocean. These actors and actresses aren’t Hollywood’s top earners. So who made it to the top of the list?
