The size of the gender pay gap in the movie industry has been laid bare in new estimates of stars' pay packets.

Forbes magazine calculated the world's 10 best-paid actors earned a total of 488.5 million dollars in the past year.

That's almost three times more than their female counterparts, who took home 172.5 million between them.

Transformers star Mark Wahlberg tops the male list with 68 million dollars, compared with 26 million for the best-paid woman, La La Land's Emma Stone.

Natalie Portman and Jennifer Lawrence are among the other stars who have spoken out about the issue.
