so he is in cleveland filming a movie. a couple days ago he came to our community college. this is just outside of cleveland. not sure why he came to this one but he did.
i wasnt there but a girl that goes to school there works part time with my wife and she was telling her about this.

all the students had to hand in their cell phones before being allowed to go into the auditorium where he was and apparently they were told that if they wanted a picture of him it would be $80.

thats crazy.

according to the wikipedia he is worth 95 million dollars.....
he is worth 95 million because of his fans that want to see his movies so why tax them like this?

i can understand these has been dudes that show up at comic cons do do signings and such cause that is now their source of income. i wouldnt pay 25 bucks for a pic but i get it.

i dont get a guy like McConaughey that is killing it right now(like him or not he is) with movies and endorsements to be charging his fans 80 bucks for a pic..

he endorses scotch or tequilla or some # and GM maybe. ive seen his commercials..
what do you think about that?

You could probably get a real dartboard for that money.

Yeah, that's BS, what a prick. I mean, maybe he wants to keep people away and from hounding him by asking for pictures? And that no one could bring phones inside?

I know some actors, and some are very appreciative to take photos with fans (unless they're on set/working), and others want nothing to do with fans at all...but I've never seen them try to charge fans for #.

Unreal.

yeah seems not cool to me

he has been seen at whole foods in cleveland and a bowling alley in lakewood. of course people snapped pics while he was out and about.
he came to the college for a reason so i would assume it was to speak...not sure the topic. maybe playing bongos naked in a hotel....not sure
but yeah. no phones and 80 for a pic

thats a major dick move i think....if you want a pic of him or with him its cause youre a fan of his #. not cool to tax people like that
just my opinion

wasnt a hotel

www.eonline.com...


Police went to the actor's house around 3 a.m. after a neighbor complained of loud music. According to the police report, an officer looked in a window, saw the actor dancing around naked and playing bongo drums, while another man clapped.

That's why some of us LA residents can't stand the Hollyweirdos. (Yes I know there are nice ones but a lot of them tend to act high and mighty).

During the Academy awards, many of them make political statements in places where they don't belong:

I have hired Jimmie "JJ" Walker a few times.

He wants a hundred bucks to say Dyn-O-Mite.

I told him if it was the only funny thing I ever said in my life,

I would learn to fart it in 15 different languages.

We eventually became friends though...

I SERIOUSLY doubt he's worth 95 MILLION. Major, major stars of film, tv arent worth that much after 30-50 years in the business.

Wikipedia is not a 100% credible source...and USER submitted info. Still, the charging isnt unusual at events like auto shows and comic-con type events.*

* I did cross-check 7 sources and his worth ranges from 50 low to 95 million high end. If he loses any endorsement deals or ex's seek more $$, that will drop considerably.

* Additionally...you usually have to pay $10-20 to have a picture taken of your kid with Santa at the malls....

I once offered someone 100 dollars and all I heard was, "WHO ARE YOU? GET OUT OF MY BATHROOM!"

He probably knows there are a number of people who will turn around and eBay those pics for more than $80.

Seeing how this was Matthew McConaughey that 80 bucks paid for both the pic and a "free" sample of weed? This is just like athletes that charge for their autographs they do it because they are greedy aholes.

An improper angle of the receding hairline could last forever on the internets when you are paid to be looked at for a living.

This is serious stuff
