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.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux: Is It Over?! Actress Stops Wearing Engagement Ring!

Oct 30 2014 10:59am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Back in August, we heard rumors that Justin Theroux was cheating on Jennifer Aniston with his co-star Liv Tyler. Nothing came of the reports and since then, most of the chatter surrounding the A-list couple has involved Aniston getting pregnant. Now, however, it looks as though Justin certainly did something to piss Jen off, because she's been spotted in public without her giant engagement ring. Jennifer hasn't spoken about the bare finger herself, but a source close to th ...
