Margot Robbie is believed to be the highest-paid woman in Hollywood thanks to her massive salary for the upcoming Barbie movie.
The Suicide Squad star, 32, has been included on a ‘leaked’ list of the highest-paid actors in Tinseltown along with her Barbie co-star Ryan Gosling.
According to the list, Margot is set to receive a hefty $12.5 million (£10.5 million) paycheck for the Greta Gerwig-directed film, a fee matched by Ryan, who is playing Barbie’s iconic love interest, Ken.
As reported by Variety, this would make Australian actress Margot the highest-paid woman in the US film industry.
She beats out Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown by a cool $2.5 million (£2.1 million), with the 18-year-old actress reported to have clinched a paycheck for $10 million (£8.4 million) for the upcoming Enola Holmes 2.
But while Margot may be the highest-paid woman in Hollywood, the staggering $12.5 million check looks like peanuts compared to some of the salaries received by the highest-paid men in the industry.
The list names Tom Cruise as having the biggest check, as he was reportedly paid an eye-watering $100 million (£83.6 million) for Top Gun: Maverick.
He is followed by Will Smith at $35 million (£29.3 million) for Emancipation, Leonardo DiCaprio for Killers of the Flower Moon at $30 million (£25 million) and Brad Pitt, also at $30 million, for an upcoming Formula 1 drama.
Then there’s Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Will Ferrell, Chris Hemsworth, Vin Diesel, Tom Hardy, Joaquin Phoenix, Ryan Reynolds, Denzel Washington, Jason Momoa, Eddie Murphy, Chris Pine and Steve Carell.
So, according to the list, Margot may be the top-paid woman in Hollywood, but she lands in 16th place overall, tied with Ryan and The Office star Steve.
Of the 26 people named on the list, four are women: Margot, Millie, Emily Blunt, Jamie Lee Curtis and Anya-Taylor Joy.
Tom Cruise – Top Gun: Maverick – $100m
Will Smith- Emancipation – $35m
Leonardo DiCaprio – Killers of the Flower Moon – $30m
Brad Pitt – Formula 1 Movie – $30m
Dwayne Johnson – Black Adam – $22.5m

Chris Hemsworth – Extraction 2 – $20m

Joaquin Phoenix – Joker 2 – $20m
Ryan Reynolds – Spirited – $20m
Denzel Washington – The Equalizer 3 – $20m
Jason Momoa – Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom – $15m
Eddie Murphy – Beverly Hills Cop 4 – $15m
Chris Pine – Star Trek sequel – $13m
Steve Carell – Minions: The Rise of Gru – $12.5m
Ryan Gosling – Barbie – $12.5m
Margot Robbie – Barbie – $12.5m

There is absolutely massive interest in Margot and Ryan’s live-action Barbie film, with the excitement rising each time photos emerge from the set (and there have been a lot).
Fans still have a while to wait before packing out the theatres however, with the film not set for release until July 2023.
As for the highest-paid actor in Hollywood however, it appears Top Gun star Tom earned his unbelievably huge pay-check as Maverick reportedly raked in $1.2billion (£1billion) at the box office.
