yes they do,but they have earned it..it takes years of hard work and training to produce the performances we c them do in tv...and they will have to continue to train themselves if they r to succeed further...but for actors and actresses one good movie is enough to make them live for th e rest of their lives...

yep, there would probably be no more world hunger if everyone in the acting community does what Angelian Jolie does.

Acting and modelling are now-a-days very rewarding and lucrative business. For this, one has to possess a charming look and personality.

I have 2 thoughts on this...I really don't think anyone is worth the money some of them are getting, but if they didn't get paid as much as they do then the companies that make the movie would be getting more so I think as in a lot of companies they too make too much profit so maybe they should lower the prices of the the products...

Its definitly true.They are paid more . But they have one inherent risk. The payment span is limited. Some may get those payment for a year or for two years or so.

I think they are paid well. Even extras earn more than a government employee. The sad thing is not all of them are paying their taxes. :( Of course, we cannot just accuse them of tax evasion and bring them to court without valid proof.

Of course they are. Otherwise, would they be able to afford those multimillion dollar houses at Beverly Hills?
