According to Variety, the actors of Oppenheimer, including Emily, "could command $10 million to $20 million on the open market," but they consented to be paid $4 million each for the "privilege" of working with Christopher Nolan.

Even with her impressive earnings, Emily Blunt is not afraid to stand her ground when it comes to contractual agreements. She has been vocal about the gender pay disparity in Hollywood, acknowledging that women deserve equal pay for their contributions and talent. During the release of A Quiet Place 2, she and her husband, John Krasinski, stood firm against Paramount's decision to shorten the theatrical release window. This move was tied to their compensation as they had a contract based on the film's box office performance. Their stance showcased the importance of understanding and asserting financial rights in the entertainment industry.
