Sho! They say hell hath no fury like an angry woman. So, how much worse must it be when that woman is an A-list celeb not getting paid as much as her male co-stars?

That's the predicament our Charlize Theron finds herself in. Charlize is preparing to shoot The Huntsman, a prequel to 2012 hit Snow White and the Huntsman, and wants to make sure she's getting paid enough for her efforts- at least as much as her co-star, Liam Hemsworth.

"One knock-on effect from the Sony hacking scandal is that there will be more sensitivity about equal pay for actresses and hiring practices at movie studios,'' a source told the New York Post and it seems Charlize has used the situation to demand that she be paid equal to the men she works with.

According to reports, the actress was set to be paid less than Hemsworth for her appearance in the movie, but after talking things over with the director she got herself a healthy 10 Million dollar pay cheque. 

We not surprised the director listened to her pleas, she is a Benoni chick after all.
