Samuel L. Jackson Making $1M More Than Oscar Winner

by Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton

“I specifically had a clause in my contract that said I had to make a million more dollars than him because he doesn’t put [people] in seats”

According to Showbiz Cheatsheet, the movie veteran discussed why his thinking changed about being rewarded more money upon winning an Oscar. He realized the importance of his presence in a movie has more of an impact than him having an Oscar on his résumé. 
“I remember doing a movie with an Academy Award winner,” he mentioned. “I specifically had a clause in my contract that said I had to make a million more dollars than him because he doesn’t put [people] in seats — I do. It’s knowing who you are and what you’re doing.”

“As jaded as I wanted to be about it, you know, thinking, ‘Well, I should have won an Oscar for this or should have won for that, and it didn’t happen,’ once I got over it many years ago, it wasn’t a big deal for me. I always have fun going to the Oscars. I always look forward to getting a gift basket for being a presenter.”
