It’s a Monday again and you’re probably back at a job you hate. This job probably doesn’t pay you enough, and your co-workers probably smell like corn chips and butt sweat. But this is your life and you don’t live in Hollywood with huge superstars like Julia Roberts.
The talented actress has worked hard to reach A-list status, and it’s certainly working out well for her. She had a supporting role in the disappointing film Mother’s Day. It made just $8.3 million during its opening weekend after receiving terrible reviews from critics. It’s currently sitting in a corner with an 8% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
But Julia Roberts probably doesn’t care too much. According to a report from Variety, the actress earned $3 million for just four days of work on set. This means she received around $750,000 a day, which is just insane to think about considering I don’t even make $750 a week.
Even if you take yourself out of it and jump straight into the magical land of Hollywood, the number is still pretty insane for only four days of work. I mean, the film made just $8.3 million this weekend. If she had two more days on set, her salary would have been over half the film’s weekend earnings.
Some people are wondering if this might hurt Julia’s career, but she’s probably safe considering she wasn’t exactly the star of this movie. It’s an ensemble, so if you want to blame her, then you also have to blame Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis.
