Actors who fully admitted they only took a role for the money
An actor with style and delivery can elevate the form—and the human spirit—with their performance, but at the end of the day, no matter how much the end result of all that work might mean to fans on an emotional level, they don't call it the movie business for nothing: it's also a profession. And although a role in a critically acclaimed indie drama might earn an actor a few pats on the back and an awards nomination or three, it's usually blockbusters that pay the bills. We've all done things in our professional lives that were motivated by the fact we were taking home a paycheck, and Hollywood's biggest stars are often no different. Between all the passion projects and awards bait, sometimes even the most talented thespian just wants to add a few more zeroes to their bank balance. These actors have been guilty of taking gigs strictly for the money—but to their credit, they were totally up front about it afterward.
