Sources told Page Six that standing up for her worth paid off for Theron, who negotiated via her agents at WME, as she got a deal worth more than 10 million dollars, the same as Hemsworth, reported.

The salary move comes after hacked Sony ­emails revealed that the female stars of American Hustle, including Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams, earned less than their male co-stars Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper.

A 2013 email from Andrew Gumpert of Columbia Pictures, a Sony subsidiary, to studio chief Amy pascal revealed Lawrence was paid "7 pts" (7 percent of the movie's profits) while Cooper, Bale and Jeremy Renner got 9 percent.
