Fifty Shades Of Grey Producer Talks Pay Rises For Jamie & Dakota
Not everyone is backing the idea of the leads getting bumps in their salaries…
Well, it would seem producer of the film Dana Brunetti isn't so sure on the idea.
"Look, when I was starting out and had to cut my teeth and build my résumé to get in, I had to basically work for free on a lot of things. I still take reductions in my fees for the opportunities to do certain things," he said.
"We got slack on Captain Phillips about how much Barkhad [Abdi] and those guys got paid. Look at Jonah Hill in Wolf of Wall Street. It was great for his career," he added.
"So I'm not going to cry for anybody who wants to be in this business just because a thing they were involved in did very well and they didn't get paid [a lot]. That's not the deal that you made. If it was, I'd have more than a couple Ferraris because all the money my films have made is f—ing insane. You've got to start somewhere."
Although everyone has to start somewhere, not all actors get off to such a flying start like Fifty Shades has after making $547.4 million and becoming the fifth highest-grossing R-rated film of all time.
That's not bad in our eyes!
