How Much Did Angie Make For Salt?

And she deserves every penny she makes!

You can praise Angelina Jolie for her humanitarian efforts and her charity work, but people rarely focus on what she's done for film!

The award-winning actress' latest film, Salt, secured her a nice, solid $20 million - a paycheck that only a few MALE actors can even make on one film!

Lori Watson, director of Women's and Gender Studies at the University of San Diego, says:

"The fact that she is in the entertainment industry and can approach a male salary is an anomaly. Maybe she can command a salary, but she can't break through the expectations that women are supposed to be beautiful and sexualized and fit a certain mold and behave in a certain way."

Hey, we think being able to make that kind of money says something!

Especially when she has enough pull to have an entire action movie re-worked from a male lead to a female just to give her the part!

What do U think?? Has Angelina broken down barriers about women in action films??

    At least we know someone like Angelina will be giving a large chunk of that money to charity.



  2. 2

    I don't know if Angie has broken any barriers for women on film, but I know that I'll definitely be seeing SALT when it comes out on Friday! :)



  3. 3

    NOT REALLY CUZ WE KNOW SHE'S A WIMP IN REAL LIFE. SPECIAL EFFECTS IS PRETTY YAAAAWN THESE DAYS.

    I can't stand this dumb bitch. Just because she is "involved" in charities makes it okay for her to be a dirty fucking home wrecker? Would everyone love Tiger's mistresses if they donated to charities? If it looks like a whore, and smells like a whore … chances are … it's a whore. Just like Angelina. I shudder at her name.

    I am all for women to get paid as much or more than any male co partner. But the thruth is that this woman is not all that, She is just an average actor, with too much publicity. Her private life, which she makes public with her photo ops, is a sham. Preaching all this so called family values and blah, blah, and don't even get along with her own father. I think there are other actresses out there with more credibility, better acting skills and even more beauty than her.

    Too bad the movie is shit, oh well I guess she lucked out.



  7. 7

    if its like her other films I'm sure its going to bomb.



  8. 8

    I disagree with that quote. Angelina Jolie HAS broken the expectation of women in films. Tomb Raider she played a gun-wielding archaeologist. Gone in 60 Seconds as a mechanic. Changeling as a female supervisor who gets a promotion in the 1920's. Salt as female CIA agent. I could go on… She plays roles that defy the expectations of women. That Lori Watson is just a babbling extreme feminist who is, basically, an idiot.

    People make fun of Twilight for how ridiculously perfect the guys are, because what girls want is silly. But there are tons of movies with gorgeous women taking on monsters or large groups of men in combat at once, all the while moving in slow motion and never messing up their appearance. Just because so many guys want to stick their dick in Angelina that she can earn $20 million doesn't mean she's doing anything special.



  10. 10

    not a big fan of her films but i hope she does well



  11. 11

    I can't explain how much love I have for this woman! She's so wonderful.



  12. 12

    No, she has not. Did you ignore the second half of the statement? She still has to be drop dead gorgeous and sexualized. If Angie was a male she would probably be commanding a much higher salary.

    But what do you care Perez? You don't have a potent salient thought in that head full of rubbish.



  13. 13

    Breaking barriers? Who do you think she is, Rosa Parks?



  14. 14

    No one knows how much money they give to charity, so don't assume alot is going to charity. It is announced their donations, but NOT THE AMOUNT. A LOT of people give money and DON'T CALL THE PRESS.They also had a foundation set up after the twins were born with money from the pics. That has been used for donations. As for these large salaries, THEY ARE RIDICULOUS. Movie prices are going up and up. To take a person or a family out to the movies is a lot of money. People resort to buying bootleg copies, which I don't agree with, but it I can find any movie coming out in the next few weeks for under $10 bucks if I wanted too and I am sure most posters could too, if they knew where to look. Now, if people are willing to wait, 2-3 months after it is released, it is on pay per view and on dvd.



  15. 15

    I think it's retarded that ANYBODY gets paid that kind of money to be in a freakin movie.



  16. 16

    Love her ever since Girl, Interrupted and Gia…but i also wish she step down the role for Cleopatra.



  17. 17

    All she does is action films, its always the same thin with her. It would be nice to see her try her hand in another kind of role. I thought actors and actresses were suppose to be diverse, if all she can do is action, then I would not give her the title of best actress. She needs to branch out.



  18. 18

    Re: AvaLovesAbs – the movie hasn't even released. Haters hate at the silliest level.



  19. 19

    Quite a few actresses have hit the $20 mil mark, Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts, and Reese Witherspoon to name a few. She is not a pioneer for women in film.



  20. 20

    "being able to make that kind of money says something! " Yes, it says that men are willing to go and see her 'action" flicks and imagine doing her. It says she is a pretty fuck, at least in the minds of the audience. Thats her "pull", still at the male crotch. So really, she is a high-priced whore for the studio/pimps lucky enough to own her, which is pretty much what Lori Watson is saying and she is right.



  21. 21

    She gives one third of her income to charity which I think is nice.

    Re: Antony – For real!



  23. 23

    Oh, love the dress!



  24. 24

    She looks like Carol Alt in this pic.

    Good for her if that movie makes enough in moviegoers and rentals. This pic looks photoshopped to make the bridge of her nose longer. She has a nice nose.
    She could use a couple of pounds. A bit of zaftig makes her look very luscious.



  26. 26

    AMEN!!!!
    we love her to dead



  27. 27



  28. 28

    That's my girl, She deserves it, great action actress



  29. 29

    my comment didn't go through? anyways, i love her & she deserves it!



  30. 30

    it doesnt matter how much money she gives to charity because she does it for fame…she the lowest common fameseeking homewrecking gutter slut… money can't undo the bad karma she's inflicted on herself!



  31. 31

    Re: Camsmommie – Hate to burst your bubble, but she has done many non action movies, do your research before you come on here making a Fool of yourself



  32. 32

    I /sort of/ like her, but it kind of sucks that she makes 20mill for one movie and my father doesn't even have enough cash to pay his house off… let alone retire at a normal age. I guess you can say I'm a little jealous of her, lol.



  33. 33

    Disgraceful!



  34. 34

    Angélina deserves every penny of that money. I wonder though how much will go to Government in taxes, anybody knows, 40% ? In Sweden it would be 50% and I agree with this. But in the US I ithink rich people don't pay enough taxes to the Government.



  35. 35

    Yes it is a major accomplishment to have a female actress commanding the same money as male actors, in a typically male dominated genre. But Lori Watson is correct (and not a female extremist as mentioned) to argue that in order for a woman to do so, she still must fit this Western ideology of beauty and size. I would argue that without conforming this way, she would probably be making less.



  36. 36

    Angelina is a home wrecking plastic byotch full of contradictions. She loves peace but always plays extremely violent women. The worst thing about Angelina Jolie is not that she's aging horribly, it's that she grandstands and uses orphans and vulnerable children to make herself look better. I despise this woman. Perez admit it, u wish you were a girl and could go down on Brad Pitt, that's the only reason, that and that you are endlessly superficial. Perez you are so obessed with the world of appearances, you can't even recognize human decency at all. Angelina, karma is a bi%$# and so are you.



  37. 37

    ewww look at her marionette lines??? she's so saggy - I guess being a pathetic skanky weighs heavily on your consciene and face.



  38. 38

    Re: sarabella15 – totally - i dislike her too… enough already with this home wrecking narcisist.



  39. 39

    there are so many comments here i agree with, i'm glad people aren't blind to the fact that thiswoman is only idolized for nothing. i applaud the charity and everything, but please, she hasn't revolutionnized anything and she can never atone for the fact that she ruined a marriage. and let's face it, she's known more for her face and tattooed body than her "acting" so clean up the drool people, it's pathetic



  40. 40

    Re: sarabella15 – Fuck you. You 'shudder' at her name, ha ha ha ha good. SHE didn't commit adultry, did she? NO Fucking Brad Pitt left that troll Jennifer. Why aren't you pissed at him? Everyone hates Angie, for taking Brad from Jennifer. YOU CANNOT take someone away, they fucking go. You sound like someone dumped your fat ass.

    Re: kiki85 – KiKi, ha ha ha pissed much. Sour grapes, huh, fat ass? Your name, ha haha kiki just a white piece of shit, ha ha kiki ahhhah…..and what is very funny, i am white, you piece of shit kiki ha ha ah……hah ahahahah ha kiiiiiikiiiiiii kkkkkiiiiikiiiiii ah ha ha ha haha Biff, Bitsy, Buffy, Prissy, Chad and KiKi are having a marvelous time playing croquet on the greens. AH HA AH HAA AHAHAH FUCKING DOUCHE MORON



  42. 42

    i got to hand it to you PEE PEE u must have learned from days past who to fuck with and who not. you dont dare say what u really feel about this overated chick, i believe she does nothing cept for recognition. why not marry your babys father? because what you really are after is keeping everything that belongs to just you, that's why u make sure brad does nothing cept watch those kids, when does he get to make another movie, and not one that u pick so he can increase his wealth just in case u "fall" in love with another co=star and leave him in limbo, just like you did to jen aniston. biatch!!

    You are awesome, Perez, but I don't understand your insane admiration of this cold, emotional wreck who isn't really much of an actress. She has good agents who have helped her parlay her notoriety into $$$. Yes, she gives to charity, but so do most celebs. They do it as a tax deduction. Unlike most celebs, she makes it public and milks it for all it's worth. Please find someone more worthy to idolize….



  44. 44

    Anyone else thinks she kinda looks like Kristin Bauer (True Blood's Pam) in this pic..? A LOT maybe?



  45. 45

    Its ridiculous to me that anyone gets paid that kind of money for acting in a movie. Just absurd.



  46. 46

    Oh please!!! Same crappy undercover agent movies!!!! LAME



  47. 47

    Re: darav2 – Oh please honey, get a life!!! Find something "real" to sink all of your LOVE into!! LOL

    Re: Jazz-hands Chaz – Take a chill pill Jack "jazz hands". Try a prozac!!! You laugh too much and it scares me. I guess you think all the "hahahahahahahahahs" make you relevant. I am scared for you people to be in our great USA!!!

    Andrew Morton's book on her is coming out soon. Brad Pitt isn't the only adulterous affair she's had according to the book. Ethan Hawke was another one that helped sink his marriage to Uma, among many others, from what Andrew is saying in his book. This female has been able to do what she wants and get away with it. Haven't seen karma hit her yet but everyone else seems to suffer at her pleasure.

    ANGELINA IS A GODESS and she is wonderful as a mental hospital patient or an action star. She can go no wrong. She is the best American actress of her generation and I just adore her.

    i think she is aging terribly and uses those kids for publicity. she doesnt deserve to get paid for the horrible movies she makes, she is a terrible actress and even tho she was not the one who was married to jennifer aniston she is the one who slept with a married man. and for that she is a skank and what comes around goes around. i think all that humanitarian work is a front and she is a full of shit, bitter, miserable, mental case.

    A few women have broken the same barriers. Diana Rigg, Valerie Plame…



  53. 53

    She plays the same role in every damn movie she's in ("hottie" with a gun and attitude.) Angelina is a glorified whore and her acting is mediocre at best.



  54. 54

    Re: sarabella15 – I agree!!! Well said :)



  55. 55

    you ppl talk so much shit about Angie, but guess what it doesn't change a thing she still won a bunch of Golden Globe Awards, she still making top grossing movies, and shes gonna continue to do it bc there's not one actress among her that can do what she can…and for those idiots that say she can't act maybe you should watch her movies and shut the fuck up..for gods sakes she won an Globe for a movie she wasn't even the main character that goes to show her potential, and the way she command attention even when she has a horrendous hair color and horrible hair cut…..and all this bullshit about breaking up a marriage mother fuckers how can u break something that has a billion cracks in it already..the fact of the matter is that Brat was done with that boring ass of Aniston…which by the way cant act for shit….and moved on to bigger and better things…SO EAT SHIT ALL YOU FUCKING DUMB FUCKS!!!….love u angie!!!!..cant wait to see my baby again!!!



  56. 56

    You didn't even understand WTF the person said. Yes, she can command the same salary as a man. But look at Tom Hanks, he's not dashingly handsome or buff, and he makes that money. If Angelina were to gain weight or lose her lips or something, she'd kiss that $20 mil good bye…
