Does Mark Wahlberg deserve to be the highest paid actor? | The Tylt
Mark Wahlberg is the highest paid actor of 2017. While some are congratulating the Boston native, others are highlighting that not only is he overpaid, but there's a gender gap in pay for actresses. According to Forbes, Mark made $68 million, but the highest-paid actress, Emma Stone, made only $26 million. Critics also argue Mark's movies aren't good enough for him to hold the top spot. Still, "Transformers" moviegoers and Mark's fans are proud of the feat. What do you think? 🎥🌟
Does Mark Wahlberg deserve to be the highest paid actor?
Mark scored the top spot on the Forbes list thanks to "Transformers: The Last Knight" and the upcoming "Daddy's Home 2." And fans are celebrating Mark's first time topping the list.
But not everyone is happy for Mark's "big win." He made $42 million more than the highest-paid actress, Emma Stone. There's a huge gender pay gap in Hollywood; it's no different than it is for anyone else across industries.
But "Transformers" is no longer one of the more beloved franchises. Though moviegoers go see the films for the mindless action, the series is still deteriorating. The latest installment, "The Last Knight," scored a 15 percent rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes. OUCH!
Yet, somehow Mark is still the highest-paid actor, regardless of the fact there's been a lack of acclaim for him as of late.
