HT City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
