Transcript for Male Supermodels Fight Back Against Wage Gap
The world's top-earning male models, not getting paid anywhere near as much as their female counterparts. We are outraged about this. It is an outrage, indeed. And you, amy, have an update on said outrage. I do, in fact. A 1 .5 paycheck is pretty good. But it's nothing compared to what the top women are earning. From the catwalk, to the covers of international magazines. We know their faces and their first names. Gisele, miranda and kate. They are the world's most famous supermodels, with the biggest bank accounts. According to "forbes" gisele bundchen raked in a whopping $42 million last year. While miranda kerr was behind her with $7 million. How do the paychecks of their male counterparts compare? On average, male models make around $200,000 to $500,000 a year, if they're really, really successful, they'll hit the $1 million mark. Reporter: You may not know industry veteran david gandy by name. But you'll recognize that face. You have to do something other than modeling to have a name. You have -- coverage and people know the name. Reporter: The ten-top earning male models earned a combined total of $8 million, from september 2012 to september 2013. A fraction compared to the $83 million their female counterparts raked in over the last year. Sean o'pry is currently the world's highest-paid supermodel, earning $1.5 million last year. The gap's what it is. Females have a lot of platforms they can use to jump off of. Like victoria's secret contracts. Males don't have that. Reporter: But o'pry is not complaining about the income divide. I don't have to wear high heels. And I don't have to wear mi bikinis. At the end of the day, I'm blessed with what I do have. There's one interesting point beyond all of that eye candy. Celebrity models are a different story. Brad pitt's chanel ad earned him $10 million. We talk about women and the equal pay thing, this is an interesting twist on it. 148% difference between the top earners, women and men. I will not sleep until we have equality. You're being so quiet, sam champion. Very proud of you. I think I used it all up.
