A salary raise makes everyone a little happier, a little more hopeful… Well, Jennifer Lawrence must be feeling 20 times gladder right about now.
The actress has received a hefty pay raise for her role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games‘ sequel, Catching Fire. So how hefty are we talking here?
Just remember to remain calm.
Lawrence was allotted $500,000 for the first HG instalment, plus bonuses. The actress is currently closing a deal for the sequel — somewhere around the $10 million mark. Oh yeah, you read that right.
A possible internal budget of an average Canadian town, or a whole life’s worth of earnings for an average citizen — all in a single paycheque for Ms. Lawrence.
In other Jennifer Lawrence news, she is reportedly in talks for a new role in the drama Ends of the Earth, focusing on the affair between an oil baron and his adopted daughter. Freaky plot right there.
That is your fill of Katniss news… What do you think of the slight salary raise?
