Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe salary: Are Outlander actors paid the same? | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Interestingly, Downey Jr – who makes three appearances in the top paid actor in the highest grossing movies – made less per line in Avengers: Infinity War than Beyoncé did despite getting paid more.
As a whole he made an estimated £36million ($50million) but received around £283,000 ($387,000) for each of his 129 lines.
Another interesting figure in the study from gambling firm Slotswise revealed Emma Watson made more per line from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 than her co-star Daniel Radcliffe.
Watson took home nearly £11million ($15 million) while Radcliffe bagged £18million ($25million).
She had 86 scripted lines which earned her around £127,000 ($174,000) compared to his 249 lines at £73,000 ($100,000).
From the figures, it’s clear male performers still earn more than their female counterparts generally across Hollywood – something which is likely to take time to change.
Also, it appears on average, male actors have more lines than females and another balance in Tinseltown demanding a redress as the film industry seeks to bring more equality and balance between men and women.
