Jonah Hill Only Made $60,000 Off Of 'Wolf Of Wall Street'
"I think SAG minimum is something like $60,000 before commissions and taxes," Jonah told Stern.
It may seem like a good chunk of money to the average joe, but compared to Leonardo DiCaprio's $10 million he scored for his role as corrupt Wall Streeter Jordan Belfort, that's a huge difference, reported IndieWire. In addition, although real-life Belfort (who was convicted) claims he didn't make any money off of the film, it's rumored he pocketed $1.066 million.
However, Hill has no regrets. He wanted to work with Scorcese so badly that he was willing to work for such low Hollywood-star wages. "I would sell my house and give him all my money to work for (Scorsese)," Hill said. "I would have done anything in the world. I would do it again in a second."
The film cost $100 million to make and has already made $170 million internationally since its release on Christmas day, according to New York Post.
