Actor Charlize Theron reveals how she made sure that she and her male costar got paid equally
Actor Charlize Theron has said that she fought for equal pay and got it during the making of The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016) where she played a villain.
“I am in a position where I could put my foot down and say, I want equal pay to my male co-star, who I had billed another movie with. We were doing a sequel, we had done it together, why not?
“What was interesting about it was I had a studio that said all right. And I was like, oh? We just need to say this? We just need to not be so polite about it and say what we want?” said Theron.
Theron, 42, reportedly received $10 million (₹642650000) fee for Cedric Nicolas-Troyan-directed film, equal to what her co-star Chris Hemsworth received.
