    Default Naomi Watts: 'Hollywood shouldn't take a pay cut'




    Naomi Watts doesn't think Hollywood should take a pay cut during the global economic downturn.
    The Aussie actress, 40, believes she and her fellow entertainers deserve their fees for spreading a little cheer during the hard times.
    She says, "I'm doing a movie now where it's the least I've been paid in about ten years.
    "People are willing to go to work now for that when ordinarily that wouldn't happen. I think we may be more open to negotiation but I think the art world tends to thrive in times of recession.
    "We need the escapism. We need stories to be told for us to take ourselves away from the reality of our situations or circumstance."

    Um, Naomi, did it ever occur to you that in times of economic hardship people CAN'T AFFORD to go to the movies? Other things are a bit more important right now ... saving our homes, buying food for our children, maybe finding a new job. Geez Louise.

    what a cunty thing to say. I never had an opinion of her either way, but now I think she's a greedy bitch who is out of touch with reality.

    And her saying "I'm doing a movie now where it's the least I've been paid in about ten years" is a horrible arguement. She makes more on one movie than most of us will make working a lifetime. She needs to STFU.

    Ha ha, so much for all the goodwill shown towards her here!

    In theory though I suppose they shouldn't take a pay cut. It's the studios and producers that are paying them. If the moviegoers don't like it all they have to do is vote with their feet. Trust me, if an actor continually bombs, their careers will fail, hollywood is filled with has beens. Unless you are nicole kidman of course.

    I didn't know I was an issue...then again, if everyone was like me all movies would go straight to dvd. I don't go to the theater, cost saving move of mine for years now.

    Maybe it's because she hasn't had a hit in 10 years. I like her acting but I never thought of Naomi Watts as box office gold.

    Please stay out of my country, cunt. I would rather pull my pubes out one by one than pay to watch your ugly ass in anything.

    My thoughts exactly.

    A little tact from her and others like her would be nice as so many are struggling right now. JFC...

    Sounds like miss naomi lost her goddam mind and forgot what time it is. Where the hell do you expect people to pull this money from to support your bland acting, you call "escapisim." This broad is delusional.
    Im ashamed to say what I did for a klondike bar...

    Well, you know, the entertainment industry thrived during the Great Depression. People loved being able to forget their troubles for a couple of hours. It could happen again.

    Except for the problem that:
    Movies are pretty expensive now, and
    Most of them suck.

    Plus, there is TV now and that fills the void for cheap, escapist entertainment.

    Congratulations, Naomi, you have just kicked yourself in the twat.

    Bitch thinks she's above the rest of us. Why should she suffer? She doing us all a favor by taking our minds off our problems for 93 minutes. We should be grateful, I guess.
