Really? We’re doing this again? Don’t get me wrong, this is hardly the dumbest thing to come out of Gwenyth Paltrow’s mouth lately. Her worship of a politician is up there, plus this bit about a team cleaning her…ewwwww.
But c’mon now.
There’s nothing more precious than someone with a reported net worth of $140 million complaining about how much someone else makes, but that’s Gwyneth Paltrow for you. Her target: Iron Man.
“Look, nobody is worth the money that Robert Downey Jr. is worth,” Paltrow told Variety. “But if I told you the disparity, you would probably be surprised.”
Hello: Downey plays the hero in a series of action flicks; Paltrow plays his girlfriend. Of course he makes way more — he’s the franchise. Tony Stark can get a new girlfriend — heck, someone else can play Pepper Potts.
We went over this a few months ago, when people complained Jennifer Lawrence was ONLY the second highest paid in leftist Hollywood, behind Downey who has been making movies since before she was born. We call this “work experience” and it affects pay in all industries. But whatevs. White, Male privilege yo!
Robert Downey Jr carries two franchises (Iron Man and Avengers) and gets paid accordingly. Gwenyth Paltrow does less work but wants the same money. Also, she names her children after fruit and has her own lifestyle company called Goop. Plus she’s like tennis. This isn’t rocket science, Gwen.
