Dwayne Johnson Paid Double For ‘Jungle Cruise’ In Comparison To Emily Blunt

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has embedded himself into feature film acting ever since he finished his career in WWE, yet it seems longer-serving actress Emily Blunt has been stung by the Hollywood grinder.

Emily co-stars with Dwayne in the upcoming Jungle Cruise with both having a fairly equal amount of screentime, yet it seems Dwayne has the best paycheque — over double the amount Emily has received.

The Mary Poppins Returns actress has received $9 million (est. £7 million) which is a decent amount of cash, but when you compare it to Dwayne’s $22 million (est. £17 million) you begin to fall back into old-Hollywood; the male/female divide — the gender pay gap.

Dwayne is actually the second highest paid actor with George Clooney at the top of the billboard, according to Forbes. Still, they aren’t the richest people in the world… Jeff Bezos, CEO and Founder of Amazon.com, holds an astonishing $121.5 billion (est. £95 billion) net worth.
