Forbes’ 2017 list of highest-paid actors reveals gender pay-gap


We are now in the year 2017 and men are still making over $40 million more than women in Hollywood. Forbes announced the list of the highest-paid actors for 2017 and you won’t believe the gender pay-gap.

Mark Wahlberg ranks at the top of the list at $68 million due to his roles in Transformers: The Last Knight. It doesn’t make much sense considering the movie ranked the lowest grossing film in the franchise to date. 

Following closely behind Wahlberg, last year’s highest-paid actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson finished second on the list with $65 million, while Vin Diesel finished third with $54.5 million. Adam Sandler ($50.5 million) and Jackie Chan ($49 million) rounded out the top five.

Emma Stone was named the highest-paid actress of 2017 with $26 million after her Best Actress-winning role in La La Land. Not only did Stone make $44 million less than Wahlberg for his role in a sub-par film, she wouldn’t even make the cut for the top 10 list of highest-paid actors overall.
