What does your mum have in common with Cameron Diaz?It's not the fame, the hot bod or the fancy dresses.
It's the fact that both will earn less than their male counterparts.
News.com.au reports the gender pay gap is as big as ever and shows no signs of abating.
Here in Australia, women get about 17 per cent less in their pay packet.
That can add up to about $1 million less than men over their working life.
It's a similar story in Hollywood where the guys are amongst the biggest earners, even though the chicks' flicks might do just as well at the box office.
Last year Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe was the highest paid actor.
The 20 year old took home about $68 million.
A list of the biggest earners from Hollywood movies released by Vanity Fair magazine had Transformers movie maker Michael Bay at number one with $131 million.
Amongst the all-male top 10 were Steven Spielberg, Ben Stiller, and Tom Hanks
