The actress is getting a major raise from the $500,000 plus bonuses she earned for the first movie.[THR]
Turns out that being the major star of a movie that grossed almost $700 million worldwide helps when it comes to negotiating your salary for the sequel. Jennifer Lawrence, who stars as Katniss in The Hunger Games, is on track to scoring a $10 million payday for the sequel, which for the math nerds out there would be 20 times what she was paid for the original when she made $500,000 plus bonuses. Lawrence was locked into a four-film deal with the producing company Lionsgate, though whether that will remain intact after negotiations remains to be seen. Her male co-stars, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, received raises as well for the sequel, but nothing like what Lawrence (the marquee star) is negotiating.
What do you think? Is she worth it? Or is this just typical Hollywood pay stub excess?
