You won't believe how much some stars make, even when they're monkeys.
We all knew celebs make big bucks for appearing in films, on TV, in commercials, in video games, and for just showing up at night clubs. But according to this recent comprehensive examination of Hollywood salaries by THR, some stars make way more than we ever realized, while others make significantly less.
Here are 12 of the most surprising things we learned from the report…
The Iron Man series is one of the most successful film franchises ever, so it shouldn't come as a shock that he would get good money. But $75 million is a lot, no matter who you are. How did he make that much? Part of his deal included getting 7% of the film's total gross.

Any time you step out wearing a Native American inspired headdress, you're bound to ruffle some feathers. But is this an innocent fashion faux pas or offensive cultural appropriation? Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Khloé Kardashian and even One Direction's Harry Styles are just a few of the countless celebrities (and let's not even count the hipsters) who've tried pulling off this distasteful trend. The fact is, ignorance isn't a good look on anyone, and lots of people—both members and non-members of the Native American community—are taking a stand against it. Earlier this year, the Bass Coast Festival banned "feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite," »
Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting sure doesn’t go for a schlubby look to the gym! The Big Bang Theory actress, 28, was spotted leaving her yoga class on Monday, Sept. 29, in a rock and roll gym ensemble worth a whopping $250. The blonde beauty, who recently lightened her pixie to a platinum hue, left the Sherman Oaks studio in some ultra-cool pieces: She rocked the star-bedecked “Grateful Riley” sleeveless tank top with the Grateful Dead’s logo on the front by Lauren Moshi, which retails for $88. On the bottom, she wore [...] »
Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting was ready to ride for a good cause! The Big Bang Theory star was a celebrity competitor Saturday in the Longines L.A. Masters, a 4-day event offering fine dining, luxury shopping and live musical performances. But before the 28-year-old blond beauty saddled up her horse Thor, she took a few moments to chat with E! News about her participation in the world's most prestigious equestrian event. "Since I'm married to a tennis player, I put it like this: To me, this is kind of like the U.S. open for riding, for horses. All the best of the best—the biggest riders in the world—are here," she said. "We're at the L.A. Convention Center—it's absolutely stunning »

What happens if you're a groom without any groomsmen? Well, if you're like Doug (Josh Gad), you hire a professional like Jimmy (Kevin Hart) to pretend to be your best man and best pal for the duration of your wedding. It's more expensive but less time-consuming than going on a lot of man-dates a la "I Love You Man," especially if you don't like bonding over Rush and "slappin' da bass."
Doug actually needs seven guys to be his groomsmen, and he's got less than two weeks to make it happen. Jimmy rounds up a gaggle of weirdos, and they construct an entire fake history of friendship together. The thing is, Doug's fiancée (played by Kaley Cuoco) eventually realizes something's afoot; it's not like Doug was a party animal before Jimmy showed up on the scene. Will Doug come clean to his loved ones about his hired motley crew? Will »

The Wedding Ringer has released a new trailer.
The film centres around shy Doug Harris (Gad), whose wedding to his fiancée Paige (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) is fast approaching.
As they prepare for the wedding, Doug gets closer and closer to breaking Jimmy's number one rule - he does not make friends with his clients.
The Wedding Ringer will arrive in UK cinemas on January 16, and opens in the UK on February 20. »
The latest trailer for upcoming comedy The Wedding Ringer is now out to view and comes with a surprising amount of laughs. Starring Kevin Hart and Josh Gad, it sees a best man for hire (Hart) who attends weddings to make the groom look better. His services are employed by Gad, who needs an entire entourage to fill out the roles of his groomsmen ready for his wedding in 2 weeks. Of course there are rules which include not becoming friends, but we’re sure such rules are there to be broken, as well as Gad learning a little about himself through this unreal experience.
Judging by the trailer, which hopefully isn’t all the best bits, this looks like a well balanced farce with enough funny lines and slapstick humour too. However, we’re also sure that the plot will develop in a very predictable way.

Doug (Josh Gad) has a dilemma: His wedding to Gretchen (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) is looming, but the nerdy guy has no best man. Enter Jimmy (Kevin Hart), owner of Best Man Inc, which provides just the deceptive service our hero needs. Can they pull it off — and maybe, just maybe, even become actual pals? Alan Ritchson, Cloris Leachman, Mimi Rogers and Ken Howard star in The Wedding Ringer for director Jeremy Garelick, who co-wrote the script with Jay Lavender. Screen Gems opens the comedy January 16 for Martin Luther King Day weekend — the same holiday frame that Hart’s Ride Along dominated with a record-breaking opening this year.

If you could have any celebrity at your wedding, Kevin Hart would probably be toward the top of your wish list. The "Ride Along" star brings the party to life for "Frozen" co-star Josh Gad in "The Wedding Ringer" Hart plays Jimmy Callahan, an escort of sorts who offers his services as a fun-loving best man to grooms-to-be who lack social skills. When Harris (Gad) hires him, all sorts of shenanigans ensue, involving faked photos, "Goonies" lookalikes, extra testicles and flaming grannies. The latest trailer features a lot of footage not seen in the initial one. Watch the trailer here: It also stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ken Howard, Cloris Leachman, Jennifer Lewis, Mimi Rogers and Olivia Thirlby. "The Wedding Ringer" opens January 16, 2015. »

Nerds and geeks have never been so popular. Wait, isn’t that an oxymoron? Who knows, with the rules of social mores being decided by the powers that be: other people. The rise of TV fare like The Big Bang Theory and the eminent shagability of the supposed “geeky scientists” on every crime procedural means those of a sweaty-palmed nervous disposition can reign in audiences. But it helps when there’s someone cool thrown in, too. Such is the case in Sony’s upcoming comedy, The Wedding Ringer.
I know that certain people will be excited that this is some sort of sequel to Frank Coraci’s hilarious 1998 wed-com The Wedding Singer. Let me dampen those fires now. It’s not. This bromantic tale follows hopeless groom-to-be Doug Harris (Josh Gad), who’s terrified of his wedding day. Not because his soon-to-be bride (Kaley Cuoco) is a dragon. No, it »

The Wedding Ringer finds groom-to-be Doug Harris (Josh Gad) trying to make up for his social awkwardness by hiring Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), the expert at creating fun and impressive groomsmen squads for socially challenged grooms. At first it seems as though Doug is going to be able to impress his fiancée (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) and her family; but as Doug and Jimmy begin to strike up an actual friendship, their business arrangement (the wedding con) threatens to come unraveled.
Josh Gad and Kevin Hart are not exactly an odd pair made in heaven – but they do have the potential for that Dan Aykroyd / Eddie Murphy dynamic from films like Trading Places. Not at all saying that The Wedding Ringer is going to ever achieve the classic status of Trading Places; just saying, the dynamic between the two leads can work towards creating a fun ...

Kaley Cuoco looks barely recognizable as she headed back to her new $250,000 Mercedes Benz. The 'Big Bang Theory' star hid her blonde hair under a cap and was about to take the car for a spin around Los Angeles, when she realized she had punctured one of her tires and was stuck with a flat tire. Kaley earlier revealed she would be a party planner in another life. She loves planning extravagant events and pulled out all the stops to organize a surprise birthday bash for her husband, Ryan Sweeting, at their home in Los Angeles in July. The 28-year-old beauty told 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show': "If I wasn't an actor, I would be a party planner in another life. I had a lot of help, but I hired synchronized swimmers to dance to our favorite song, which is One Direction's ['What Makes You Beautiful']. It was my version of strippers. And that »
It seems like there is no stopping Kevin Hart. He already has three movies released this year, and he is in Top Five by Chris Rock, which comes out later this year after a very strong premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Then, in January, we get The Wedding Ringer. In typical January fashion, this looks like a freight train to the face, and I mean that in a bad way. Hart plays a man who hires himself out to be best man at guys' weddings because they have no actual friends. He is hired by Josh Gad to not only be his best man but to help him find all seven of his groomsmen. Now, I am just taking a stab in the dark here, but I am guessing Hart and Gad end up being best friends by the end. It seems like a radical idea, but I take risks, »

Sony Pictures has released a new The Wedding Ringer trailer for director Jeremy Garelick’s upcoming comedy. The story revolves around an introverted yet successful tech entrepreneur (Josh Gad) who hires the owner of The Best Man Inc. (Kevin Hart) to be the perfect best man, assemble fake groomsmen, and throw a killer wedding party. The movie has a lot going for it—a promising comedic duo, a fun premise, and a heartfelt friendship story at its center—and this trailer is quite funny. I imagine this will be a sizable hit in the empty January moviegoing landscape, and it’s certainly nice to see Lost alum Jorge Garcia onscreen again. Watch the new The Wedding Ringer trailer after the jump along with a few new images. The film also stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ken Howard, Olivia Thirlby, Cloris Leachman, Jenifer Lewis, and Mimi Rogers. The Wedding Ringer opens in theaters on January 16, 2015. Via Yahoo! »

If you ever thought that mashing up "Hitch" and "Wedding Crashers" would be a great idea, we must inform you that Sony is way ahead of you. Next year, the studio will release "The Wedding Ringer," which conjoins matrimonial madness and cool-guy-helping-awkward-nerd story lines. Kevin Hart and Josh Gad star in a comedy that finds a friendless groom-to-be hiring the services of an outsider to help him with a simple problem: he's got no best man or groomsmen for his wedding. And what follows is hilarity, apparently. Here's the synopsis: Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. »
