Meanwhile, Lawrence managed to secure a large upfront fee for her upcoming film “Passengers” with Chris Pratt. According to a report from Hollywood Take, Lawrence is being paid $20 million for the film, far more than his male co-star. At the same time, Lawrence happens to bank huge earnings even when’s she not doing a movie, thanks to her $15 million contract with Dior.
Lawrence is an outspoken actress who decided she did not deserved to be paid less than any of her male co-stars. In a Lenny letter, she once wrote, “Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale, and Bradley Cooper all fought and succeeded in negotiating powerful deals for themselves. If anything, I’m sure they were commended for being fierce and tactical, while I was busy worrying about coming across as a brat and not getting my fair share.”
Today, Lawrence is indeed getting her fair share. Celebrity Net Worth reports that Lawrence’s net worth is now at $110 million. According to IMDB, Lawrence has several upcoming films, including “Passengers,” “It’s What I Do,” “Bad Blood,” “Red Sparrow” and an “Untitled Darren Aronofsky Project.”
