10 Actors Who Were Paid Shockingly Little for Famous Roles

They are the 10 actors who were paid shockingly little for famous roles.

Hollywood is a big thing that annually makes a lot of money. And everybody knows that the actors get paid way too much.

But occasionally, actors chose to appear in movies for low paychecks. But why they do agree to such terms?

Because of a combination of reasons such as: they loved the role so much, they were desperate to appear on the big screen at the time or because they are first-time actors and therefore they are not able to negotiate a bigger amount of money.

Either way, because of their performances, many of these films managed to gross millions at box office.

Chris Evans starts this list with actors who were paid shockingly little for famous roles.

Disney’s The Avengers is one of the largest movies ever made. Its budget was $220 million and managed to gross $623,279,547 only in the USA.

Quickly became one of the largest and popular films of all times at it broke numerous records.

Starring in such a high-profile film you would expect that all the starts to receive equal and impressive salaries for their work. But nope.

Chris Evans, who played Captain America, unlike his co-stars was paid only $2 million.

You will say that isn’t that enough? No, it isn’t.

Compared to some of the other actors such as Robert Downey Jr., who played Iron Man, who had an estimated pay of $50 million, Chris’s paycheck becomes insignificant.
