On May 6, 2016, the Hollywood Reporter reported that actor Jennifer Garner received a $10 million payment from “The Great Gatsby” for the role of Gatsbys mistress, Daisy Buchanan.
According to THR, the actress earned the $10.5 million in advance fees and other remunerations, including $4 million in the form of a 10% equity interest in the company, which she had previously invested in.
The article also reported that the actress received a total of $10,200 per day for the roles of GATSBY and BOBBY, and a $2,500 bonus for the production of the movie.
The Hollywood Reporter added that the $5 million salary the actress is paid is a “significant sum of money.”
As for “Gatsby,” the article reported that director Steven Spielberg “has yet to respond to THR’s request for comment on the matter.”
In a response to the article, THR noted that the article’s source was incorrect and that the actor has not been paid by the company for the film’s production.
THR added that THR had also reached out to the company to ask if they had received a response from the director.
Garner has been a frequent critic of Hollywood in recent years, citing how the film industry is still largely controlled by male executives.
On Twitter, she criticized the industry for paying female directors more than male directors for the same work, and for having a “culture of female mediocrity” in the industry.
In 2016, Garner tweeted that the film business was “trying to turn my career into a business and not a human right.”
On May 12, 2017, Garner took to Instagram to call out the film studios for paying actresses more money than male actors.
“It’s a system where I am not getting paid,” she said.
“If you’re paying women more than men, you’re not working hard enough.
You’re not really making movies that people want to see.
You are not showing your talent.
You know what I mean?”
The actress, who has a long history of working with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, also recently criticized the “sugar daddy” model for Hollywood, saying that it’s a “bitch” system that forces female actors to have to work as prostitutes in order to make ends meet.
“You know what, there’s a lot of people out there that are paying these women to have sex with them,” she added.
Garner, who is also the daughter of actor and producer James Garner, is not the only actress to receive an undisclosed amount of money from a movie.
Earlier this year, actor and director James Gandolfini received $10-million advance from “Hacksaw Ridge,” while he received $5.5-million for “Captain America: Civil War.”
Other recent stars to receive undisclosed amounts of money include former model Kate Upton, who received $4.5m from the movie “Blackfish,” and “Carmen Sandiego” actress Jodie Foster, who was paid $3.5million for her part in the film.
“A movie is a human being,” Garza told THR last year.
“And they deserve the respect and dignity that they deserve.
I feel like there are so many people in the world that are making money off the backs of the rest of us, but I’m the only one that is being paid.
I have the right to speak up.
It’s a very difficult thing to talk about, but when it comes to this industry, you can’t speak up.”
