This week the Forbes magazine has released the list of the best paid actors and actresses of Hollywood and George Clooney and Scarlett Johansson lead the list. What’s the problem? The wage gap that exists between them of almost 200 million dollars.
Clooney, with 239 million dollars of benefits, is the first of the list, thanks to his tequila brand called ‘Casamigos’. On the feminine list, it is Scarlett Johansson who appears first, with 40,5 million dollars earned for her role as the Black Widow on The Avengers.
It is remarkable the difference between them, of 198,5 million dollars, that left clear the wage gap of salary that exist today on Hollywood, as well as in the rest of the jobs to this day.
On the list, after Clooney appears Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth and Jackie Chan. But, looking at the list, Scarlett Johansson earned the same amount that the seventh male of the list, Will Smith, with 42 million dollars.
On the feminine list, Angelina Jolie follows Johansson, and then, Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lawrence. The amounts for women are much smaller than for men, because Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), the last of the list, earned 10 million dollars.
Is it normal than the difference between stars would be so remarkable, at the same that for any other worker of the any other labor sphere? The answer is no.
