Kim Kardashian was paid $1.35 million (R20 million) to appear in an Australian Uber Eats advert
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians celebrity stars opposite Magda Szubanski – who is in character as Sharon Strzelecki from Kath & Kim – in the commercial, which sees her wear a netball outfit and appear confused by her co-star’s pronunciation of ‘noice’ and the day of filming netted her a hefty pay day.
According to NW magazine, Kim agreed to a deal worth $2 million in Australia, to appear in the commercial, the equivalent of R20 million or US$1.35 million.
Magda, 58, recently admitted that Kim was confused about the content of the advert as she had no idea what netball was
She said: “At first, she thought it was some kind of joke about the Met Ball. And it’s the most anti-fashion ad that you can imagine!”
But she later clarified that she hadn’t been present when the 39-year-old beauty shot her scenes, joking that Sharon’s “busy schedule” had stopped them from filming together.
She said: “They were in the same room, but not at the same time.”
Meanwhile, Kim – who has North, six, Saint, three, Chicago, 22 months, and Psalm, six months, with her husband Kanye West – recently vowed to live in the moment more instead of worrying about taking perfect photos.
She said: “I guess I just don’t care as much anymore to want to take tons of photos in a thong bikini. I think I’m evolving to where I don’t feel the need to want to keep up.
“I actually just want to lay out. I don’t care to take the time out of my day on vacation like I used to, where I’d pull up to the house and I’d see, ‘This is a setup, this is an Instagram pic. Now this is a different setup.’ Now I’m just like, ‘Let’s actually live in real time and enjoy it. If we happen to get a photo, great.’ ”
