Hey Lrm Weekenders, this week we're featuring some of the most intriguing, powerful, and successful women in Hollywood. Its easy to become fixated on our male action stars, since that's how Hollywood tends to market their films, so we sometimes fail to recognize the contributions and accomplishments of our female action stars! But first, we want to discuss the elephant in the room: the dwindling audiences at movie theaters -- we'll explore some problems, one potential solution, and hopefully provide some insight into an issue that's only going to get worse if everything remains status quo. »

16 August 2017 5:27 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stone’s earnings came in ahead of Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lawrence on Forbes’ annual list of Hollywood’s top earners.

At 28 years old, Emma Stone has been named as this year’s highest-paid actress, taking home $26m in the last 12 months.

Stone earned the bulk of her earnings from her portrayal of Mia in La La Land, which earned her an Oscar for best actress. The film has grossed more than $445.3m worldwide.

Stone spoke out against the gender pay gap in Hollywood, revealing in an interview with Out Magazine that some of her male co-stars have taken pay cuts to ensure parity. Stone will next be seen alongside Steve Carell in upcoming film Battle Of The Sexes.

Jennifer Aniston comes in a close second, earning $25.5m in the last 12 months.  While Aniston continues to star in films regularly, like Office Christmas Party and The Yellow Birds, the majority of her earnings come from endorsing brands »

Stone's pretax income largely came from her role in La La Land, which grossed $445.3 million at the global box office, as well as earning her a Best Actress Oscar.

Forbes editor Natalie Robehmed told Et that the publication believes Stone "took a lower upfront pay in order to get more compensation on the back end. The movie went on to do phenomenally well."

Jennifer Aniston is the second highest-paid actress, earning $25.5 million. While some may be surprised to find Aniston at No. 2 on this year's list, Robehmed explained that the 48-year-old star "still makes millions from endorsements for Smart Water and Aveeno."

Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton’s “Battle of the Sexes” Set as American Express Gala at BFI…

Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton’s “Battle of the Sexes” Set as American Express Gala at BFI London Film Fest“Battle of the Sexes”: Melinda Sue Gordon/Fox Searchlight

The BFI London Film Festival will be hosting the “Battle of the Sexes.” Deadline confirms that Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton’s biopic about the famous Billie Jean King v. Bobby Riggs tennis match will make its European premiere as the fest’s American Express Gala on October 7. The directors, stars Emma Stone, Andrea Riseborough, and Elisabeth Shue, and Billie Jean King herself are expected to attend the event at London’s Odeon Leicester Square.

Battle of the Sexes” presents the historic 1973 tennis match between upcoming star King (Stone) and self-proclaimed sexist Riggs (Steve Carell) — a much-hyped game that would be nicknamed the “the Battle of the Sexes.” The 29-year-old King handily defeated the 55-year-old Riggs in one of the most-watched sports events of all time. King v. Riggs would become a cultural shorthand for women’s rights, especially as they pertain to sports.

In a recent interview with Marie Claire, Stone described playing King as a “game changer.” The Oscar-winning “La La Land” star explained, “I am very nervous to communicate my opinions a lot of the time, especially publicly…[Billie] is so direct and confident in the way that she communicates what she believes is right.” Stone observed, “To be able to step into that was a pretty powerful experience. It’s something that I still don’t feel entirely comfortable with, but it was also one of the great parts about playing her.”

Battle of the Sexes” opens September 22 in the U.S. and November 24 in the UK. The BFI London Film Festival will be held October 4–15.

Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton’s “Battle of the Sexes” Set as American Express Gala at BFI… was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
