Matt Dillon Wants His Crash $$$!

| Filed under: Legal MattersMatt Dillon

Word to the wise - pay your actors, because when you don't they get all bitchy and then you have to put up with this garbage.

In 2004, Matt Dillon got the extreme honor of starring in an Oscar winning movie, Crash. Thing is, Matt says he was cheated out of $100,000 in profits.

Say what? You weren't in the movie that long? How can you be worth that much?

Apparently, Dillon's accountants discovered the oversight during a 2006 audit of the company's finances. Now, Dillon wants to get paid, so he is suing the producers for his share.

Um, if you are in the middle of an audit, you might want to think about dealing with that shiz first, before trying to get more money! Or perhaps you need this money to pay back on something else?

Ah, now we get it!

    Can I just let you know that most companies are required by law to have an external audit every year. The word audit does not automatically equal an IRS audit, or that the company is in trouble. Try not to jump to conclusions if you don't know what you're talking about.

    He is so awesome. My favorite movie of his is Mr. Wonderful. Think it went straight to video when it came out but it really is a great movie and he is such a great actor!

    That's terrible, can't believe that an artist is owed money from a film that made plenty of it!!! You'd think the producers would be grateful for his outstanding performance rather than try and cheat him out of $100,000 when I am sure they made millions.

    Thank you swiftheart. My thoughts exactly. Most, if not all companies are required to have audits. If they don't, they should. That's how you find stuff like this. Perez do your homework.

    omg you are dumb. It's not a tax audit, an audit simply means to go through your books and make sure everything is hunky dory. Most companies are required either by their charter or the gov to at least once a year have an audit by a different company. An example would be Arthur Andersen who was *supposed* to be auditing Enron on a regular basis to make sure things were in order.

    After that, he can think about going after his *accountants* for the missing interest.

    Perez is ofically an idiot. Matt Dillion did a great job in that movie, he WORKED and did his job, I can't beleive that he wants to get paid for working what, only 12-16 hours a day to play that part, how could he want his money,(I say sarcastically). All companies audit thier own books, most of the time every quarter,3 months, to make sure that 1. They DON"T owe money to anybody, 2. That they are owed any monies, 3. That all accts. receivables and accts. payable match up. Perez I wonder if you have ever worked a job, although it is just common sense, maybe he(Perez) has never paid any of his bills, would think he would do audits seeing as he deals with advertising on his site. Maybe he just takes the money he gets and goes and spends it without paying his accounts.

    omg really? you are really dumb perez. don't you have an external auditor?



  11. 11

    Here I just thought you were an idiot Perez, but to not even know what an audit is? Holy crap…I think you're semi retarded or something.



  12. 12

    Tax advice from Perez Hilton. Guess what, IDIOT, there are other types of audits than the IRS audit you are thinking of, idiotfuck

    He's not going to get any money. Crash was a low budget film. It became a big success at the film festivals and on the awards circuit but it didn't rake in tons of $$$ at the box office. It only made $55 million, and after you deduct all the production, marketing, and distribution costs not much of that money is left over. Industry people know that once a mainstream distributor takes over a movie, the producer never sees a dime in profits afterwords. I like Matt Dillon, but I don't think he's going to win this.

    The role you see as insignificant actually earned him an Academy Award nomination.

    Also the film cost less than $7 million to make and earned almost $100 million from the worldwide box office. If you don't even factor in DVD sales, despite inflated distribution and marketing costs, that movie is profitable and the $100 he is asking for is nominal considering the success of the film.
