If you were a fan of movies in 2018, there’s a good chance you saw Letitia Wright in action. This year was her time to shine. She played a huge role in Black Panther, then she hit the screen again in Avengers: Infinity War, Ready Player One and The Commuter. According to Fandango data, Letitia Wright was the single performer who brought in the most money for studios.
All told, Letitia Wright brought studios $1.55 billion. Yes, billion. Yes, with a B.
You’d think that studios would want to keep their proverbial cash-cow happy by paying her well (and make no mistake – like all movie stars, Letitia makes way more money than most of us could ever imagine) but homegirl is definitely worth more, you know? Letitia makes the most money for the studios, but she’s nowhere near the Forbes Top Ten. This years top grossing actor, for example, was George Clooney… again.
But he didn’t even act in any movies in 2018, so…?
None of the cast of Black Panther appears anywhere near the Forbes Top Ten list of highest paid actors for the year. That seems strange considering how well the film did.
Letitia’s not complaining, but the woman knows her worth and isn’t afraid to comment about it. Check out her response when Fandango posted a chart based off of their data:
