Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt are both A-listers with a long list of box office hits, but when it comes to their Disney paychecks … he gets treated more than twice as nice.

The actors are set to costar in the upcoming “Jungle Cruise” movie, but according to our sources … The Rock’s hauling in way more cash for his role. We’re told he’s getting $22 million to play the lead male character, Frank … Emily’s only getting $9 mil to play the lead female, Lily.

As you know … The Rock’s a mega movie star and the second highest paid actor — just behind Daniel Craig — known for the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise, “Moana” and several other huge summer blockbusters.

But … Blunt is Mary freakin’ Poppins. She’s also a Golden Globe winner and 5-time nominee, and has starred in several other hit flicks herself … like “A Quiet Place,” “Sicario,” “Edge of Tomorrow” and “The Devil Wears Prada.”

It seems Johnson’s “Jungle Cruise” pay rate matches his quote for another one of his 2020 movies — “Red Notice,” which costars Gal Gadot — but it’s unclear if her salary will also be dwarfed by his.

 

Despite the pay discrepancy, it appears The Rock, Emily and fellow cast member Jack Whitehall — who’s playing Disney’s first openly gay character — all got along really well.

BTW, the gender pay gap is nothing new for Hollywood. You’ll recall Mark Wahlberg got paid $1.5 million for reshoots for “All the Money in the World” early this year … while his costar Michelle Williams did them for free.

Mark decided to donate his salary after the public outcry.
