    I like your fight.

  2. She has only done Maleficent between july 2012 and july 2013 – and for that she got 15 mil. I don’t get the list?? Can anybody tell me how to understand the list?

  3. The Tourist wasn’t a flop; slightly better than break even at the box office, let alone everything else.

  4. Danielle says:

    In what world was The Tourist a flop? Knee-jerk, blood thirsty media just tried to declare it one after the first weekend. It went on to make $280m- majority of that coming overseas, showing the massive global appeal of Jolie and Depp. Maleficent is going to be a monster hit worldwide.

  5. Judy says:

    Where is Sandra Bullock’s co-star, Melissa McCarthy?? Yes, it’s true – comedians and especially fat actresses are paid less – you can be in some of the most successful movies of the past 2-3 years, but you are just not worth the long stemmed beauties.

    • It isn’t being in those films that counts, it is how much she was paid (before she was confirmed as a “star”; and whether they all count for this year’s list?

      Also neither Bullock, nor McCarthy can have been paid what male stars of similar stature would have been, iif they made The Heat for $43m! No way at all…
