Profit share matters more for Hollywood A-listers than salary
The actual money for lead actors in successful blockbusters isn’t the salaries decided for them, although the salaries too are a whopping amount, the real money is their share in the profit participation clauses. These actors pick up huge sums of additional income if the movie is a blockbuster at the box office.
Marvel is famous for sharing profits with its cast. Like the blockbuster success of ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ made Robert Downey Jr. and other co-stars even richer. RDJ was paid $20 million as salary for ‘Avengers: Endgame’, but when the movie became the highest-grossing movie, he was topped with 8% of the back-end profits. In numbers, it netted him a clean $55 million extra, while his other co-stars Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth earned $25 million as a topping above their standard fees.
Amber Heard’s earnings from ‘Aquaman 2’ makes Johnny Depp jealous
Basically, salary doesn’t define the total sum an actor starring in a comic book extravaganza will ultimately take home until the movie is released and the financial dust has settled. Entertainment magazine “We Got This Covered’s” tipster Daniel Richtman claimed that ‘Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom’ will crown Amber Heard as the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. He hasn’t gone into the details in the report as to how exactly she’ll achieve this feat.
Heard is supposed to have banked at least $5 million upfront for the first instalment. Now, the money should have at least doubled because ‘Aquaman‘ collected over $1.1 billion globally. In order to become one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, Heard would need to get somewhere around $15-$20 million approximately, if we see the financial gain of some of the highest-paid actresses from the last couple of years. Some reports even claimed that Johnny Depp is having sleepless nights. But neither the claim that Amber Heard is going to be the most successful actress financially nor that her ex-husband Johnny Depp is jealous seems to be true.
Is the claim true?
Regular actresses who make to such sort of salaries have generally played several significant leading roles. Amber Heard, who is only famous as DCEU’s Mera, hasn’t exactly been doing too well as of late.
