How Much Would Marilyn Monroe Make In Today’s Hollywood?
Counting someone else’s money is always exciting and engaging, especially when it comes to our beloved celebrities. It’s everyone’s business to know how much this or that a celebrity makes. Let’s take the most highly-paid actresses for example.
And #1 on this list is Emma Stone who has managed to make $26 million this year. Of course, if it wasn’t for the La La Land musical, it’s doubtful she would top the rating.
Nevertheless, it didn’t prevent Jennifer Aniston from being the second one. She has earned $25.5 million from all her movies and a stake in a haircare line.
The third one is Jennifer Lawrence that has made $24 million, but she was #1 the past two years!
Women get paid less than men.
And even despite these overwhelming numbers, women all over the world are highly underpaid. And the vivid example of this fact is the comparison of two incomes. $80 million is what the world’s most highly-paid actor made, while on the women’s side, Jennifer Lawrence, can boast about only $52 million.
It’s not fair, and the world’s community is voicing their concern and tries to attract more and more attention to the problem.
And even Marilyn Monroe back in her times was a highly underpaid actress. It’s hard to tell how much she would make now, but judging by the popularity of her image nowadays, the figure would have been significantly higher. Her estate makes about $5 million a year now.
Back then she made only $100,000 for her unfinished film Something's Got to Give while Elizabeth Taylor got $1 million for her Cleopatra.
It’s sad to see such figures, but it’s a fact that only people all over the world can change together.
