Emma is the highest-paid actress

Emma has previously spoken about the gender wage gap in Hollywood, and said: "In my career so far, I've needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them. And that's something they do for me because they feel it's what's right and fair. That's something that's also not discussed, necessarily: that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, 'That's what's fair.'" Jennifer Lawrence, who was second on the highest-paid actress list has also spoken about the pay gap. In an open letter, she wrote: "Could there still be a lingering habit of trying to express our opinions in a certain way that doesn't 'offend' or 'scare' men?"
