What Do The Stars Make To Sell You Crap?

Wondering what the beautiful people hawking an inferior product to you like a slightly more suassive, slightly less smelly used car salesman are making? Look no further. Here’s the top 10 highest paid celebrities and the products they are endorsing:

1. Catherine Zeta-Jones (T-Mobile): $20 million
2. Angelina Jolie (St. John): $12+ million
3. Nicole Kidman (Chanel No. 5): $12 million
4. Jessica Simpson (Guthy-Renker): $7.5 million
5. Gwyneth Paltrow (Estee Lauder): $6+ million
6. Charlize Theron (Dior): $6 million
7. Julia Roberts (Gianfranco Ferre): $5 million
8. Brad Pitt (Heineken): $4 million
9. Scarlett Johansson (L’Oreal): $4 million
10. Penelope Cruz (L’Oreal): $4 million

Do you think Catherine Zeta-Jones had to sit through a 45 minute T-Mobile customer service call to get her 20 mil? If so, she might be a tad underpaid.

    CZJ literally takes three steps and says five words per commercial. Amazing.

  2. Paul D says:

    Plus, CZJ is not actually in the room with the other folks in the commercial. It’s all green-screen and CGI.

    So yeah, $20 mil, and she doesn’t actually have to “act” with any of the proletariat.

    It might be smart of T-Mo to fire CZJ, save itself $20 million, and then lower all rate plans by $5. That’d probably attract more customers than Catherine does…

    I think the most incredible thing about this list is only one man. Men are paid more than women in basically every field, even movies pay the top men more (where most of these people come from). But when you need someone to actually sell something for you, when it really matters, women are the most valuable apparently.

    Funny that this comes out at the same time that Wimbledon says they will continue to pay the men more. Cause apparently there are people who still watch men’s tennis.

  5. Plus, CZJ is not actually in the room with the other folks in the commercial. It’s all green-screen and CGI.

    HA! I’ve always suspected that! Finally some outside confirmation! Does anyone else find it insulting that she “green-screens” her appearances in the commercials?

    What is she too good to appear on the same set as the no-name commercial actors?

    What the hell is St. John? A wart medication? A hospital?

    This is getting ridiculous.
