They scolded the actors the same way, but they received different fees.
George Clooney received 25 times less Schwarzenegger for his shooting in the movie “Batman and Robin”. At the time, Clooney was best known as Dr. Doug Ross of Ambulance, so it’s no surprise that megastar Arnold Schwarzenegger’s name took first place in the credits.
George Clooney’s fee for participation in this film was only a million dollars, while Arnold Schwarzenegger earned 25 million dollars. This despite the fact that Clooney played the role of the main character in this film – Batman. Arnold Schwarzenegger played the villain Mr. Freeze.
Clooney announced this in a new interview with THR. The actor admitted that he regrets that he decided to star in this film. Recall that the film “Batman and Robin” was released in 1997. This film received mixed reviews. Many critics and viewers spoke extremely negatively about him.
Also in his interview for THR, Clooney emphasized that during his work on the project, he never met Schwarzenegger on the set. The actor described the filming process as a “circus”.
By the way, the negative character of the movie “Batman and Robin” – Mr. Freese, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, is considered one of the most unfortunate villainous incarnations on the screen.
