Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt are each A-listers with an extended checklist of field workplace hits, however with regards to their Disney paychecks … he will get handled greater than twice as good.

We’re informed he’s getting $22 million to play the lead male character, Frank … Emily’s solely getting $9 mil to play the lead feminine, Lily.
As you already know … The Rock’s a mega film star and the second highest paid actor — simply behind Daniel Craig — identified for the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise, “Moana” and several other different enormous summer season blockbusters.
But … Blunt is Mary freakin’ Poppins. She’s additionally a Golden Globe winner and 5-time nominee, and has starred in a number of different hit flicks herself … like “A Quiet Place,” “Sicario,” “Edge of Tomorrow” and “The Devil Wears Prada.”
It appears Johnson’s “Jungle Cruise” pay price matches his quote for an additional certainly one of his 2020 motion pictures — “Red Notice,” which costars Gal Gadot — however it’s unclear if her wage can even be dwarfed by his.

Mark determined to donate his wage after the general public outcry.
