We can’t get over how much these TV series stars earn

Everyone knows that Hollywood is a brutal place and making it big is hard as nails. And yet, every day aspiring actors and actresses make their way there, all in search of fame and fortune. But, for every ‘American dream’ success story, there are thousands of people who will spend their lives in search of that lucky break and will never find it.

No business like show business

For the tiny minority who do manage to catch a big break, life as they know it will never be the same again – especially from a financial point of view. There is an incredible and almost vulgar amount of money to be made in movies and television. How they justify what some of the big names in Hollywood earn is honestly beyond me. There is so much poverty, so many people starving in the world… surely that kind of money could be put to better use? People who are out there saving lives, making a real difference – these are the people who deserve to be earning well as far as I’m concerned.

See if you can wrap your head around the staggering amounts these TV series stars earn per episode …
