Five grown men greasing themselves up and trying to grab some balls? We’re in.
While most average people would love to “suffer” through million dollar paychecks, the substantial wage gap between Hollywood’s top paid actors and actresses was evident when Forbes released the list of the highest paid actresses of 2015.
Jennifer Lawrence topped the list by raking in $52 million pre-tax over 12 months — $16.5 million more than second-ranked Scarlett Johansson, who earned $35.5 million — but still substantially less than Robert Downey Jr.’s leading $80 million paycheck in 2015.
All in all, the world’s 18 highest-paid actresses earned a combined $281 million before taxes and fees – $660 million less than the 34 world’s highest-paid actors, who earned a cumulative $941 million.
But, with all that said, let’s take a look at the actresses who did top the list.

Carving a pumpkin for Halloween is an age-old tradition, and most of us roll up our sleeves and try to make something that slightly resembles a Jack-o-Lantern, or at least dig out the guts so we can roast the seeds.
But then there are these people — the overachievers — who take a simple pumpkin and turn it into an epic work of art.
You know when you’re watching a movie that you’re expected to suspend reality. Aliens aren’t attacking the city, Minions aren’t running around, and houses aren’t lifted up in tornados and placed on a Wicked Witch in Kansas (that we know of). Those are the obvious things.
But all too often things that rarely happen in real life (but that possibly could) are portrayed as completely normal in film. Reddit users took to exposing these things in a hilariously relatable thread.
Party like a rock star! Well, before you can really party, you have to do that whole “growing up” thing.
Who would have guessed that these children would grow up to revolutionize the world of rock n’ roll?
There are certain things about movies you can’t help but notice —the dialogue, the appearance of the main actors, and so many other things — but have you ever paid attention to those moments when a scene is shot with satisfying symmetry?
Thanks to this post from BuzzFeed, you might notice now.
The Big Lebowski (1998)
Let’s face it. Most people will never be rich and famous celebrities, and even those struggling actors and actresses know that they should have some sort of a backup plan. That’s why a majority of the stars you know today went to college and studied something other than acting. True, not all of them graduated, but they seemed to do pretty well for themselves…study up!

Totally unsurprisingly, it’s the Germans who have figured out how to make music out of tools. What is surprising is how awesome it is.
What extremes would you go to for your job?
Most of us would be never be asked to gain or lose a ridiculous amount of weight in a short period of time, but if you’re an actor or actress in Hollywood, that’s just part of the job.
And for some looking to truly suffer for their art and epitomize a role, that means taking their body to the extreme in ways that the average person would never (and probably should never) dream of.
Including one who gained 60 pounds only to be fired and replaced in a film…
For his role in The Machinist, Christian Bale drastically dropped down to 121 pounds — losing 63 pounds in four months — before doctors told him to stop because they thought he was near death.
