Netflix Boosts Movie Star Salaries. See How much They Make!

Movie Star Salaries Revealed

May 01, 2019

Netflix may be a handy way for you to chill, but it’s also a way for your favorite stars to get paid. For instance, while Will Smith might not get much for doing “Bad Boys for Life” with Martin Lawrence, he’s set to make a cool $35-million from the streaming service for his work on “Bright 2.” 

The reason for Netflix shelling out the big bucks has to do with the fact that stars can only get a flat fee. For traditional movies, they can get an initial salary and a percentage of what the film makes. 

With that being said, here’s a look at what some your favorites are making this year: 

  • Ryan Reynolds– $27-million for “Six Underground”
  • Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson– $20-million for “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw”
  • Robert Downey Jr.– $20-million for “The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle”
  • Will Smith– $17-million for “Bad Boys for Life”
  • Jason Statham– $13-million for “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw”

  • Emily Blunt– $12- to 13-million for “A Quiet Place 2”
  • Brad Pitt– $10-million for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”
  • Gal Gadot– $10-million for “Wonder Woman 1984”
  • Leonardo DiCaprio– $10-million for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”
  • Margot Robbie– $9- to 10-million for “Birds of Prey”
  • Idris Elba– $8-million for “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw”
