Penelope's Big Perks Raise Eyebrows

Penelope's Big Perks Raise Eyebrows

Penelope is loving her wide legged jeans! Seems like a good comfortable bet when you're catching an early flight out of LAX. We don't blame her for getting out of town. I would want to skip town too after the the LA Times wrote an article detailing the perks (and salaries) she and Matthew received on their flop of a film, Sahara. The article breaks down how Hollywood budgets have gotten out of hand using Sahara as a great example. Penelope evidently only (I say "only" in relative terms: the film cost over $281 million to make) got paid $1.6 mil but had over $800,000 in perks like a personal hairstylist and security team.


It seems extravagant but not unusual, especially considering how much money the film wasted on everything else! The real crime we think is that Penelope was paid way less than her two male counterparts (Matt and Steve Zahn). Now that she's been nominated for an Oscar she hopefully has a bigger price tag.
