starving actors? oxymoron?
they're either not acting very well, hence not very good actors, or they're good actors, and therefore not any where near starving.
I could be wrong, I have never known an actor. It's a presumption on my part.
not much else you could do with $1 a day. Is it in a lump sum? or dished out per day?
Lump sum, buy a large quantity of rice. Individual days, I can only think of noodles. the 2 minute variety, theyre about $.50 cents a packet here for
the super cheap type.
Hmmm rice.. When I like something, I like 2000 of it!

Most actors you know, you know them because, well, they're famous... And sure they are beyond well paid, but they put their dues in. Like any job
that relies on fandom to gauge salary base, there are a ton of people at the bottom who barely get by because they have no public pull. This goes
across a few industries like: Art, Music, Movies, TV, Sports, etc.
There are many professional sports stars that play in the minors with salaries the same as entry level jobs or below. B-Movie/TV actors. Small part
Think about how many movies and TV shows you watch and how many people are in them. Sure there are 5 headliners paid 100k-20 Million+ depending on
show or movie, but there are dozens and dozens in each that are not really famous at all but work very hard, and often, with extensive resumes.
In the UFC there are many no names/stepladder fighters, up and comers, who start out only earning 5k a fight. They have to train full-time and put
their bodies through gruelling regimens only to struggle to get by.
You see there are many people on the bottom, yes, very close... Just a few fans away from earning big bucks and being a household name, who are on the
cusp of riches, but may never make it there. For the most part, the people who rise to the top would have diligently worked their fields no matter
what, even in the bottom positions without the reward. And frankly, as long as they are of that character, I feel it quite deserving should they make
it to the top.
