It’s hard out there to be professionally beautiful and a man. A new list from Forbes revealing the highest paid male models teaches us just that.
Sean O’Pry, 24, finished on top of the list with earnings of around $1.5 million in the 12-month period that Forbes analyzed. A lot of money for being a model right?
Nope. Jezebel points out that while O’Pry did well, he’s only making about 1/40th of what the top female earning model, Gisele Bundchen, made over the same stretch.
An interview with ABC News shows that while O’Pry is aware of the discrepancy, he’s not sweating it too much:
“I’m not going to be complaining about not making $42 million. … At the end of the day I’m very, very blessed with what I do.
“I don’t have to wear high heels and I don’t have to wear bikinis, so I mean, more power to the ladies. I’m very happy with my career.”
Hey, you don’t have to complain, Sean. I’ll do it for you. This is a travesty. A TRAVESTY. Do you see how beautiful this man is? Pouty lips, high cheek bones, stunningly blue eyes. He’s basically walking art.
There’s only one way to solve this. Let’s get Gisele and Sean in the same spot and prepare for war:
WALK OFF. WE HAVE A WALK OFF
