It doesn't matter that Little Fockers got dismal reviews, if you were in that film, chances are you got paid BIG money.

The movie raked in about $105 million, but $70 million was shelled out to pay the actors' salaries.

Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro earned $20 million each, $15 million for Owen Wilson and $7 million for Barbra Streisand. Dustin Hoffman negotiated a $7.5 million deal after reshoots were needed at the last minute and Jessica Alba's salaries is estimated at $3 million.

"The studio needed a hit, so the stars were able to hold them to ransom and command huge money. On top of this, De Niro takes extra cash because his company, Tribeca Productions, produced the movie," claims a source.

Another insider added:

"Universal decided on a reshoot at the last minute, and Hoffman's character was needed for some new scenes. They couldn't originally agree on terms with Hoffman, so for the reshoot he could basically name his price — which was $7.5 million for five days' work."

Wowsa!

A source close to the film said, "It's taken in close to $105 million in the US and $72 million overseas. The projections are that it will be a $300 million movie, which is a huge success."

Do U think the actors worth it?!

    No…I dont' think actors are worth it, nor do I think sports athletes are work it.
    .
    I think people in the medical profession, doctors, surgeons and nurses deserve a good pay increase. We would be lost without them. Count's survive without them!
    .
    BTW: I'm Not in the medical profession either

    You reprint someone else's story verbatim and refer to the real reporter that actually researched and wrote the piece as an "inside source"…as if you somehow got this secret information yourself. You're a fucking hack.

    Re: Sluggodog – want your taxes to rise? becuase that is the only way to increase the salaries of doctors and nurses.

    I watched it for free online and I felt like I was watching a bad T.V. show that regurgitates the same script as the last. BTW I almost didn't make it to the end, the jew inside jokes were getting on my nerves, keep that in mind if your sick of the jewry and thinking of paying to see this jew garbage.

    Re: KDIZZLL

    Thanks for the insight. I was planning to skip it anyway but now have a reason beyond the fact that the first 2 sucked. The jew jokes simply aren't funny - which is why Seth Rogan is such an unfunny actor.

    i dont get how owen wilson got paid more money then barbra streisand, has the world gone mad?

    thats what happens when you are best friends with ben stiller!



  14. 14

    No.



  15. 15

    The only people who probably needed the work were Wilson and Alba. Streisand could've done it for free and still have more money then the salary of the cast combined. Maybe it wasn't a great movie but it served it's purpose, however insignificant it may have been.

    Didn't enjoy this one.

    You ripping off other people's articles isn't news, but where'd you get that piece of shit picture?! It looks like a ten year old photoshopped it in paint! Crap crap crap.

    No, but actors are marketable products, and that's the movie biz. Each movie is a new mini-corporation that either makes a profit after costs, or doesn't. The actors do their best part for the corporation, but the bonus is that hopefully the movie tells a story and entertains as celluloid art intends. Hopefully.
