What The Kids Are Making!

wenn2236225.jpg

For the most part, it's less that we thought!

Most child stars have been working since they were in utero, but that doesn't mean they are getting paid big $$$$.

A few kids get hundred of thousands an episode, while others earn a mere $10,000. Even Miley Cyrus only made $15,000 per episode on Hannah Montana. And she makes five times that at just one of her concerts.

“Miley is worth a billion — but she’s not making a billion on TV,” claims a source. “But her franchise is worth a billion.”

“People think there’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow” for young TV stars, says Hollywood talent agent Jackie Lewis, who represents a bevy of young TV actors.

“But let’s think about the commissions given out once they get that pot of gold: Ten percent goes to the agent; 10-15 percent goes to the manager and 15 percent goes to the Coogan Account,” said agent Jackie Lewis, referring to the trust fund that by California state law must be established for underage actors and cannot be touched until they’re 21. “And then there’s taxes. So even if a kid is making $25,000 a week, he or she may see only 30 or 40 percent of that money.”
