LOL NAH!!
 
if by "deserve" you mean "filled a contractual obligation to show up someplace(s) and say some written script before a moving image recording device of some kind" then sure.
 
they "deserve it".

It's simple economics my dear. If a film grosses 300 million worldwide. giving an actor 5 million is fair. they are a part of the movie and can help put butts in seats. the studio still takes home WAAY more than the actors. entertainers are wealthy but no where near the net worth of business men and entrepenuers for that matter.

the actors deserve a piece of the pie but as usual the people working their butts off in the background aren't getting as much as they deserve of the cut.  it's such a greedy industry...everything is all glam and millions and free shyt for the execs and stars but the production crew, stylists, assistants, etc live on dirt.

they dont give anough credit to AA actors/actresses. I was told that if you go and see an AA movie and the name of the movie isnt on the ticket stubb that movie isnt getting credit for the purchase price of the ticket.

But there's always been celebrities though...even in the 'Old Hollywood' times.

A star and a celebrity are two distinctly different things, they always have been. A star is known for their craft and will have a body of work (film, tv etc) that creates their star image whereas a celebrity is famous for the sake of being famous.

That being said though, nowadays with the technology and social networking that's around, the two can sometimes leak and overlap.

And it's hard for me to feel bad for celebs/actors/Hollywood anyway because at it's core, it's a racist establishment that misrepresents and undermines the efforts of POC.

Am I supposed to jump for joy that almost 70 years after Hattie McDaniel played a maid in Gone With the Wind, black people are still getting awards for playing mammies in The Help?SleepyPinch

Rant over.

Nope.
agreed.

its by design though bc the big stars command a higher price they would rather pay reality tv folks a bulk amount and the network rack up serious ratings/money. So I notice established celebs playing that game exploiting their private lives to stay relevant.
