Brad Pitt says big Hollywood Pay Days are over for Stars

Sep 11 2012, 7:27am CDT | by

Brad Pitt says Hollywood can no longer afford to pay huge salaries to major stars because of the global economic downturn.

Brad Pitt insists Hollywood just doesn't have the cash to splash on its major stars at the moment due to the global financial crisis and the top actors must simply get used to the economic change.

When asked if major stars could expect to earn $10 million per movie, he told the BBC: "Yeah, that thing died. That arithmetic doesn't really work right now ... that deal's not flying these days."

Despite the drop in salaries, Brad insists it is a really "interesting" time in Hollywood at the moment.

The 'Killing Them Softly' star - whose fiancee Angelina Jolie is one of the world's most successful actresses - insists the monetary challenges can bring the best out of the industry.

He explained: "It's a really interesting time. A lot of the studios have been challenged because of the economic downturn as well so they've been betting on bigger, more tent pole kinds of things. At the same time that opens up a vacuum for really interesting new filmmakers to come in."

According to Forbes' top 10 highest earning actors list - published in July - Brad banked $25 million in the last financial year.

Tom Cruise topped the list with earnings of $75 million.

According to the outlet, Jolie’s friends are worried she’ll “land in the hospital if she doesn’t slow down.” A so-called “insider” tells the Enquirer, “Angie is drain ...

Shia LaBeouf blames his arrest on ‘performance art’: funny or offensive?

Oct 20 2014 6:10am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

This is a photo of Shia from last week. He arrived to Jimmy Kimmel’s show in shiny, pink spandex pants. The pants were officially a gift from Ellen DeGeneres (as part of pink month), but we know Shia loves his neon workout ensembles. I have been slacking on Shia coverage, so this will be a lengthy roundup. Shia embarked upon a grand redemption tour for Fury. He’s behaved badly for several years, but he always catches a break and l ...

Oh Shia. You were such a cute kid. In movies like Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull you seemed the perfect combination of boyish good looks, acting chops and an eagerness to please. And then the troubles started. The arrests. The meltdowns. The purple leggings. At least now we know, it wasn’t temporary insanity, an inability to deal with fame but it was the whiskey that made you do it. At least that’s he told Jimmy Kimmel last night.  The h ...

Now that Gwyneth Paltrow is through consciously uncoupling with Chris Martin, she's officially in the market for some new A-list arm candy. Given, Gwinnie's insanely inflated sense of self-importance, we probably shouldn't be surprised that she's gone full-Lewinsky and set her sights on the highest office in the land for some truly historic bow-chicka-wow-wow. It all started when Paltrow hosted a fundraiser for the Democratic party yesterday, in preparation ...
