    Default George Clooney earns $20 million per movie, average actor $12 per hour

    (this guy can't even open a movie, WTF are they paying him that much for)

    Parade Magazine on Yahoo! News

    Entertainment
    George Clooney may earn $20 million per movie, but he's a rarity. Overall, the median wage for actors in the U.S. is less than $12 per hour, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As for the rest of the crew, they're clearly doing it for the glamour, not the money.
    The median wage for a movie or television writer is just $5,000 a year.
    A costume designer or makeup artist can earn more than $2,000 a week. But since work comes on a project basis, year-round employment is not guaranteed.
    Production assistants typically earn just $8 an hour.
    TV show directors can earn upward of $35,000 for a single one-hour episode -- if they hit it big.
    Health Care
    Jobs in health care have soared 45% in the last 15 years, and experts expect opportunities to continue to grow as the population ages.
    The U.S. will need more than 500,000 new nurses by 2016. Median salary for a registered nurse: $57,280.
    Many of the fastest-growing occupations are medicine-related. Pharmacy technicians average $12.32 an hour. Medical transcribers can earn $17 an hour.
    Family doctors and pediatricians are in demand, as more medical students pursue higher-paying fields like dermatology (average salary: $390,274) and plastic surgery (average salary: $412,000).
    Education
    There will be 2.8 million new teaching-related jobs over the next eight years, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.
    Spanish-speaking educators will be particularly sought-after: The need for bilingual and English as a Second-Language (ESL) teachers has increased in each of the last three years.
    Overall, demand is up in 53 different education fields since last year. Administrators, teaching assistants and custodians are especially needed.

    I hadn't heard that George was in the $20 mil club. Does that count when he works as a director as well or just an actor?

    Something seems off, but it's not surprising that a lot of actors get paid pennies. Most of the money has to be saved for Clooney and Pitt!
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    That can't be right! Per week maybe?

    I personally think that these high profile celebs are overrated and way over paid.

    Um Tom Cruise is the highest paid actor due to his back end deals, he usually makes more than the studio and now he owns the studio and if ever a person was over rated it's him.

    Cruise made almost 200 million off of War of the Worlds.
    So when they talk about how much they get paid thats one thing but it's how much they actually took home is another.

    I think A list actors are over paid but their career is short like that of a pro ball player.

    Clooney hasn't had all that many big movies so I don't get the hype but Pitt has had a lot of epics and has had quite a few blockbusters at the box office.

    Crowe is under rated and earns less than Clooney or Pitt

    These median incomes sound right. Remember, they are averaging the annual income based on people who are members of the union. LA is full of hopefuls who join the unions in hopes that they will get employment on a fulltime basis. Until that happens they work as waitresses, etc. I can see that most would earn very little since so few ever actually break into the industry and make it big.

    It's the same with lawyers. Everyone thinks they are all so wealthy but a few years ago they reported the average working attorney was making 40k per year. I doubt they can even repay their loans for law school on that income.
