Brad Pitt: No more big paydays for stars

Los Angeles - Brad Pitt says actors do not earn multi-million dollar salaries anymore.

The 48-year-old actor insists Hollywood just doesn't have the cash to splash on its major stars at the moment due to the global financial crisis and the top actors must simply get used to the economic change.

When asked if major stars could expect to earn $10m per movie, he told BBC: "Yeah, that thing died. That arithmetic doesn't really work right now. That deal's not flying these days."

'A lot of studios have been challenged'

Despite the drop in salaries Brad insists it is a really "interesting" time in Hollywood at the moment.

Brad's fiancée Angelina Jolie is one of the world's most successful actresses and insists the monetary challenges can bring the best out of the industry.

"It's a really interesting time. A lot of the studios have been challenged because of the economic downturn as well so they've been betting on bigger, more tent pole kinds of things. At the same time that opens up a vacuum for really interesting new filmmakers to come in," Brad explained.

According to Forbes' Top 10 Highest Earning Actors-list which was published in July, Brad banked $25m in the last financial year. Tom Cruise topped the list with earnings of $75m.
