Jim Carrey was the 8. best paid in 2008

Postby TNPihl » Fri Jun 12, 2009 10:18 am

Jim Carrey is number 8 on this years "Hollywood's Top-Earning Actors" (Forbes) for "Yes Man".

Jim Carrey #8:
$28 million

The funny man took a big risk this year on his film Yes Man. In lieu of his $20 million upfront pay, Carrey became an investor in the movie taking one-third of the film's profits. The unusual deal turned out to be a good one for Carrey. By the time the movie has earned all its money he'll pocket $35 million.

I think more actors should do that. As we all know they earn enough money to invest in their own movies. If they did, the studio's would greenlight a lot faster and more projects would come together instead of being unplugged.

I wonder if he'll do the same to A Christmas Carol?
That movie should be a sure-fire hit profitable enough even more than what he got!
