hi guys^^ dont you think that hollywood stars receive many many money only for enter in one movie? there are good movies in many countries and people dont receive that much money for enter in a movie. also i think that in usa they should use some of that exaggerated money they pay to those people to help those in africa and asia that are dying bcs dont have food neither water neither a house. dont you think? is ok that they receive good money bcs they are working hard but not as much as they win. they should use money for better things than just give a lot of money to enter only in one movie. dont you guys agree?^^ please share ^^

Oh absolutely they do, but it is not their fault, it is the fans and public that for some reason keep dishing out all the big bucks especially for the crap that some dish out. Then you have the actors who truly deserve more and well never get recognized and never get famous.

aw yes i understand what you mean^^ that many ones receive a lot of money without having that much talent and others with much talent never get recognized. yes not everyone is lucky enough :( but you are right is a bit our fault bcs we like movies so much. the society in general^^ but also they sometimes ask for more money to star in a movie or other thing they are invited to. so they also know what they do. i just mean that some people work so much more than them and they never receive that much money like them. thanks for your answer^^

Sort of like life in general, do you think?? We have employees who work their Tootsie's off and never get awarded or even acknowledged as they deserve yet the owners who perhaps never visit their place of business get all the riches and acknowledgments amongst all their colleagues.

yes is true. many people work so much and never get a reward. what is not fair at all. at least once in awhile companies should pay a bit more to the employers at least a bit more all years :) it is in the law that the companies have to do that but not all do that anyway ahah i mean no company does that ^^ but sadly is the world we live in and we dont have the lucky of the hollywood stars.

i never said that they dont work. sure they work and they deserve to receive big money. and yes i like movies and i bought dvds and i love cinema what im saying is that they receive an exaggeration of money comparing to other people that work more than them and neither half of what they receive those people have. sure everyone deserves to be paid for their work. but is not fair that they receive in monthes what some people never receive even if they work all their lives.

I think Hollywood stars deserves this money, They make the world with fun and bring smile on our face. I am happy to see many Hollywood stars contribute donations in disaster times, hospitals and for poors.

yes i agree that some of them help much^^ but not all of them. also why not pay them less and use the money for bigger causes? they receive too much just for enter in a movie. thats just what i mean. if they took like 2 million less in their salary for a movie maybe those two million could be used to help people in africa and asia that need much help bcs the poorest countries are there. thats just what i meant that money sometimes is used too much with people that already have it and dont need more. and those that dont have, have less and less money or no money at all.

hello SLF, Well,some big producers and movie stars are helping charities,they don't just let it print in news of have some public appearances in television. It's a mutual business,the producers to produce big and extravagant movies,and pay big stars for their movies to earn big too. For the movie stars to be paid with big amount so they can help more charity works. Each time there were calamities,big stars never give second thought of giving big amount of money,and so with the movie producers. But,if only those big stars will join hand in hand and put their money in one charity ,then,i believed they can build a home,school and shelter for street children all over the world. Not to mention the billionaires in the business industry who had their money lying in the bank for nothing. But,this the reality of life,not everyone is generous,and most generous people are those who are not rich,becoz they are the one who totally understand how does poor people feel,wants and need. Have a good day always

yes many hollywood stars help and i appreciate that they do that. but is like you say there are people with billions of dollars that just put it in the bank and for what? when we die money stays. so is better we use it for good causes while we are still here. also you are right saying that who understands poor the most are poor people too bcs we know what those people been through. also those actors that were poor and now are rich. those understand too. and i just wish they help. and yes if all hollywood stars joined money and opened a charity place for sure it could help so so many people. bcs also rich people that are not as famous as them would contribute for them. bcs being a hollywood star is a help to receive money for charity bcs people trust they will really give it to people that needs. so for sure they should do this that would be a great idea :)

Yeah they probably earn more money than most of us here on my lot combine. I guess luck is on their side. I wish I could earn that much, but personally i think most if not all deserve their paycheck. I can imagine the work they put on their image, I sometimes wonder whats going on their mind if one of their movie flops. I dont like people prying on my private life and then the world will see my nervous breakdown then after that everyone will give their opinion about it.

yes for sure they win more than everyone here in mylot together^^ and yes they are lucky and yes sure they work much and people always talk about their lives and always follow them around and create lies about them and all those problems. they have a hard life is true but see those people that everyday work all the day and neither half of what those people receive they get. there are people working all day as slaves and also have a very hard life. and they cant choose other one. but hollywood stars can let her career go anytime bcs in one or two movies they win enough for them and for their kids and to help others too and have a normal life after some years. but there are people that years and years even all their lives work so much and never receive as much money as they have. thats what i meant.

The issue is subjective and objective. On an objective level I think that they are paid within reason (considering the freedom of the market). The only limit on what they can make depends on how talented their agents are in getting them the right contract. They are not breaking any laws by making alot of money. On a subjective level some may say that by being paid so much they should play a more charitable role in society or decrease the size of their contracts. I can understand why some feel that way as it is difficult for the common man to understand why someone would require a yearly $20+ million salary. My personal opinion is that the amounts of money that some make within the industry is too much for one person. If I made that much money I could see myself giving the majority of it to charity as I would have no need for it.

is good to know that you would give a lot to charity^^ what i mean is not that they are breaking laws sure they are not but i mean that they shouldnt receive that much money. money should be used to help also poor people in some countries bcs sadly not all actors in hollywood give much to charity. they help more when there is some disaster or something but even without a disaster happens there are countries where a lot of people die everyday bcs dont have food. i just wish they could think in decrease a bit hollywood stars salary and start to give some of that money to help those that really need. only that^^ thanks for your answer^^

Yes definitely...movies are just for entertainment...they aren't essential for people to be able to live...I think that the values are all reversed so what's not really important became important and vice versa. I think people who make food, vegetables and similar stuff should be paid more and they struggle to survive although they work for many hours and their jobs are really difficult, while movie stars spend a few weeks on set and they get millions. You can't eat a movie...you can't drink it...you can't use it as medicine!

yes thats what i mean^^ thanks for understand me^^ yes we all love movies and we all are happy that movies exist but is true there are so many people that work so many hours everyday that work as slaves and never win half even of what hollywood stars win. with one movie only they have their life done. unless they go waste it all they can have a great life with those millions of dollars. they could even retire after make one movie. like for example miley cyrus. she is 18 years and is super super rich. she didnt need to sing anymore or act in movies or do anything anymore in her life bcs she is already so rich. thats what i mean. and there are people with 40 and more that has to work to survive. thats what makes me sad. how some people has so much and other ones have nothing all their lives.

I don't think so. I think they deserve for this. So they get a great amount of money. And I think them always doing hard work for their movies. So their movies getting more publicity. So I think it is good that Hollywood star winning more money than other star.

im not comparing hollywood stars with other actors im comparing them with everyone. even normal people that everyday get up early and get home at late night. they work hard in movies for monthes only but some people work everyday of their lives since morning till night. thats much worse than hollywood stars. and i just meant that some of that money should be given to people that need more than them. they win millions of dollars to star in a movie. 1 million dollars only can help many many people around the world that need food to eat. and they are receiving millions only to enter in a movie. thats what i meant.

they do get a lot more mola than they deserve

Not really. They are being paid what someone is willing to pay them to star in a movie. Here in the U.S., some stars are bankable. Essentially what that means is that the star has such drawing power that a bank is willing to finance making a movie which is typically a very risky business. Even after paying a star what their asking price is, the studio is making money. If they weren't, they wouldn't pay those kinds of dollars. I think that it is an individual decision what stars or anyone else does with their money but some of the major stars are very very giving people. As much empathy as I hae for those that are dying because they don't have food and water, I'm afraid that I don't see a connection. I don't think that anyone should command less of a salary because others in this world do not have money for basic necessities. Please take a step back and look at all of the wonderful things that many wealthy people in this country are doing for others. Bill and Melinda Gates would be a great place to start. Mu husband and I aren't wealthy by any stretch of the imagination. We are retired and live on social security yet we make sacrifices so that we can contribute to our church's project to feed the homeless and make consistent contributions to the food bank.
