who are truly intelligent are rarely exceptionally wealthy.
I do find it a slightly sad reflection on modern society that entertainers are so ludicrously rewarded, whilst most of those actually adding to knowledge and development are less so. But I'll still happily pay £8 to see a movie, and in so doing line the actors' pockets!
I don't mind paying a fiver to see a film but sports stars are paid far too much.
Each studio produces hundreds of films a year and only a few are blockbusters Lots more make losses than make profit so the blockbuster films sustain the studios. Granted some actors get paid huge amounts, but not all do.... and most are out of work more than they are in it.
Brad Pitt has been known to take a whopping pay cut when he throws himself into a project as do other actors.
Movies do a lot more for society than egotistical footballers with less than 2 brain cells to rub together.
