Quién gana más dinero en Hollywood

A pesar de la recesión, algunos talentos de Hollywood han demostrado que no les afecta la crisis. Sin embargo, los tiempos fáciles en los que el dinero fluía por todas partes, desde inversores internacionales a fondos de inversión libre, han pasado a la historia. Cada vez se hacen menos películas. Incluso se está forzando a muchas estrellas a aceptar los pagos solo si la película genera lo suficiente. A pesar de todo, sigue habiendo dinero para un selecto grupo.

Lo primero de todo, esta élite de Hollywood está limitada a las figuras creativas – productores, directores y estrellas. No se incluyen magnates, agentes o gentes que trabajan principalmente en televisión. En los cálculos se tiene en cuenta el salario del actor o profesional, sus porcentajes por taquilla y la venta de DVDs.
