    They get paid up to 20 million for working 3 months!!!!!

    They can take a pay cut, they get paid WAY too much for what they do. It's disgusting!

    She failed Economics 101 didn't she? It is a well known fact, when money gets tight, one of the first things individuals do is cut entertainment, including movies, concerts, and dining out.

    However with honesty, not one celebrity is worth what they make. Even the ones I like. If I am wrong someone correct me. A perfect example is the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie is to pay JD 40 million. I like JD, but he isn't worth 40 million, when my neighbors are losing their jobs and homes, and he is prancing around France.

    Watts can go be cheerful in the Outback if she wants. Maybe she won't come back. Australia has the largest population of poisonous creatures in the world. I read that somewhere. I assume its true.

    Apparently Naomi Twatts thinks she's worth it.

    At least she isn't asking for a stimulus package, yet.

    She's got a point, up to a point. During the Depression people still flocked to theatres, but they didn't have tv back then. Also, no one is making movies about Madcap heiresses anymore, which is a shame. We deserve better than "Paul Blart, Mall Cop" or whateverTF the name of that movie.

    I'm of the opinion that the "talent" should get every dime they can. Studios, sports franchises, etc. make obscene amounts of money off the backs of talent and if you cut their pay the men in suits, whose contribution to the final product amounts to pushing pencils, making deals, traveling, and eating, are the only beneficiaries.

    Hollywood and the music industry have had it long coming.

    The average family has gone from spending 6% more than it makes to saving 3% in the other direction. Movies did well in the great depression because they were a dime a dozen. Sometimes literally. (And, might I add, you could bring your own FOOD to the theater) This isn't the same dynamic anymore. People are going to spend less on fluff for the next 10-20 years. Bend over Naomi.

    So it's fine for other industries to offer pay cuts, and no pay rises. But of course Hollywood should continue to pay these actors millions.

    For someone that is such a shitty actress, she should be happy she is getting paid at all.

    Exactly what i would've typed if you hadn't beat me to it.
