Gal Gadot, known for her roles in the Fast & Furious franchise and the DC Universe, has become one of the most popular names in the entertainment industry. Recently, she starred in Netflix’s Heart of Stone, where she played the lead role of Rachel Stone.
The film, directed Tom Harper, also features Jamie Dornan and Alia Bhatt. Despite starring as the main lead, Gadot was paid significantly less for Heart of Stone compared to her previous co-lead roles alongside Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson.
Heart of Stone was released on August 11, 2023, and initially gained popularity with 33.1 million views in its first week. However, the film received negative reviews from both critics and audiences, with a low Rotten Tomatoes score of 29%.
Gadot reportedly earned a massive salary of $5 million for her role in Heart of Stone, while her co-stars Jamie Dornan and Alia Bhatt made $1.5 million and $500,000, respectively. Despite the film’s unfavorable reception, Gadot expressed excitement about being a part of it as a producer and telling a story from a unique female perspective.
Interestingly, Gadot’s salary for Heart of Stone pales in comparison to her earnings for another Netflix film, Red Notice. In Red Notice, where she shared the lead role with Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson, Gadot and her co-stars earned a whopping $20 million each.
With Red Notice having a budget of $200 million, the salaries for these three actors were deemed appropriate. It’s worth noting that Gadot’s $20 million salary for Red Notice is higher than the $10 million she earned for Wonder Woman 1984.
While Heart of Stone may not have been a critical success, it can still be considered an entertaining one-time watch. Both Heart of Stone and Red Notice are available to stream on Netflix.
