Page 1 of 3123

Jonah Hill has made headlines recently after it was revealed he was paid just $60,000 for his Oscar-nominated role in The Wolf of Wall Street. Now, $60,000 is a lot of money to a lot of people, but in the world of Hollywood actors and their big pay cheques, Hill was paid pitance for his work. Still, he is not the only one to take a pay cut for the sake of the project paying them.

Jonah Hill is apparently nothing like his character in Donnie Azoff

Hill decided to take a pay cut, from the usual 6-7 figure digit he tends to receive, because he was so determined to get the part of Donnie Azoff so he could work with the director of the project, Martin Scorsese. By putting his dreams first and his bank account last, Hill has received his second Oscar nomination to date and has been roundly praised by critics for his role. What's more , Hill isn't alone in taking one for the team and opting out of a big pay cheque for the sake of the project he's appearing in.

As actor's pay slips continue to get more absurd, there is a chance that over time we see more stories like this, and there is also a chance that stories like this happen in Hollywood all the time, it just goes under the radar. The following people haven't let it their personal greed get in the way, or let it go past without notice.
