It'll come as no surprise that the movie business continues to make multi-millionaires of actors and actresses, but it seems that Netflix has a lot to do with that these days.
The salaries of the biggest players in Hollywood have been revealed and a large portion of many of them are attributed to the streaming service.
For example, Variety reports that the likes of Ryan Reynolds is receiving a flabbergasting sums - $27 million - for starring in Netflix Original movie 'Six Underground'. Will Smith, meanwhile, is reported to earn a prospective $35 million for his role in 'Bright 2'. That's a hell of a lot more than traditional movie studios can offer stars these days, although those figures don't account for the 'percentage of the profits' clause that many actors include in their contracts with regular studios.
And the likes of Robert Downey Jr. and The Rock can still command large sums for their non-Netflix roles, as you'll see below.
