At the top, it isn't "the industry" who decides what to pay them. It is the audience, by how much of a draw each individual is, so how much leverage the person has to negotiate a higher wage.
It would be fairer to compare how much the stars of a single show (such as the big bang theory) get.
HA!!! GOOD ONE..HYPOCRITES...
No - It's not the audience. We don't pay them. The producers do.
On the other hand, taxpayers absolutely pay the salaries of our elected and non-elected leaders.
The ironic thing is this industry - overwhelmingly liberal - demands that women be paid the same as men. Yet they don't do it themselves.
Can anyone say hypocrisy?

it's a matter of draw. Women have not historically carried a picture. While there are exceptions. the person who is seen as the moneymaker is male.
But the film industry is 99.999% liberal.
If income equality means that much to them, they will do it in their own industry, well before they demand that other industries do it. If they believe in income equality, they will lead the way.
But they don't, so they don't really mean it. They just like to boss people around. And the WH is a fine example. "Do as I say, and not as I do."
Why don't libs get the log out of their own eyes, before trying to get the speck out of their neighbor's eye?
It's the epitome of hypocrisy.

Perhaps it is the script writing?
Would you say that the lead male roles usually showcase the individuality of the actors more than the lead female roles?
