Adam Sandler and Margot Robbie were the highest-paid actors of 2023 — but one is definitely earning more than the other (and everyone else, too) with the difference being … Netflix.

Forbes released a list of all the major actors who cleaned up last year — and the ranking based on their numbers is interesting… for a few different reasons, we assume. For starters, The Sandman is the king of Hollywood’s money machine, grossing $73 million in ’23.

If you’re wondering where all that dough came from — you can thank the biggest streamers in showbiz for lining their pockets… Adam has a total of 4 Netflix releases in the past year.

There were movies. Adam starred in “Murder Mystery 2,” “You’re So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah,” “Love” and “Spaceman” … with the latter released this year, though he’s already Compensation has been received.

Netflix and Adam have been in business for years now — he’s got an exclusive deal with them to produce tons of crappy movies… and he’s definitely keeping his end of the bargain. In return, the guy is getting paid handsomely…which is streaming movies we’re talking about here. Just goes to show… this is the way of the future!

Margot Robbie, meanwhile, earned $59 million last year … obviously most of that is “Barbie” money — she earned more than $1 billion at the box office — and her “Asteroid City” had a small cameo.

The difference between Margot and Adam — aside from the $14 million — is that MR is an old-fashioned actress in the sense that her films play strictly in theaters. Hmm… interesting.

The rest of the list isn’t all that surprising, as it includes plenty of big names — including Tom Cruise ($45M), Ryan Gosling ($43M), Matt Damon ($43M), Jennifer Aniston ($42M), Leonardo Di Caprio ($41M), Jason Statham ($41M), Ben Affleck ($38M) and Denzel Washington ($24M).

A few other people are noting about this list … a lot more dudes than chicks. So yeah, it looks like there’s still a bit of a wage gap in H’wood — and the fellas are on top.
