We knew the stars of Fifty Shades of Grey had to be making a pretty penny, considering how much the movie is grossing worldwide, but just how rich is the BDSM-lite trilogy making our Christan Grey in real life? Well, a lot – but not actually that much if you think about it.
Apparently Jamie Dornan made a paltry $1.2 million for the first movie, which is great money to us laymen, but absolute shit in movie star money. I guess the studio got a little scared that their main man might pull out, though, because the sequel should earn him a cool $6.9 million – at least according to the Daily Star. A nice increase, for sure, but still not really a decent portion of the pie if you consider how much this franchise is raking in.
Here’s a quote from ~a source~ just for good measure: “Jamie has signed the deal and he’s thrilled, the money on offer was just too good. Jamie has made it known that doubts could be in place if Sam Taylor-Johnson [director] exits, but it’s just a ploy designed to put pressure on James and push her to loosen her grip. The truth is that Jamie plans to do all three, and very much with the backing of his family.”
Huh. Well, there ya go. You know his wife is gettin’ PAID for this bullshit, though.
