CHARLIZE THERON DEMANDS EQUAL PAY FOR ‘THE HUNTSMAN’
The leaked Sony emails which revealed the pay disparity between actors and actresses in Hollywood allegedly prompted Charlize Theron to demand equal pay for her work in The Huntsman.
One source told Page Six, “Charlize insisted that she get paid the same money as Chris. She has a great track record, so she got the same deal.” Another insider added, “One knock-on effect from the Sony hacking scandal is that there will be more sensitivity about equal pay for actresses and hiring practices at movie studios.”
Charlize’s agents reportedly negotiated a $10 million paycheck — the same as co-star Chris Hemsworth. She is also believed to be getting a share in the movie’s profits.
The Huntsman is a sequel to the 2012 film Snow White and the Huntsman and will hit theaters in April of 2016.
