Paltrow Earns Millions for Three Minutes

20 September 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Gwyneth Paltrow will reportedly earn a staggering $3.6 million to sing one three minute song on the big screen - making her the highest paid actress ever for a cameo appearance. The Oscar-winning beauty, who is putting her acting career on hold to be a full- time mother to baby Apple, will receive the massive paycheck for playing singer Peggy Lee and singing "This Thing Called Love" in a star-studded biopic of legendary writer Truman Capote called Every Word Is True. A source says, "No actress has earned this sort of money for just one day's work. When you're talking about someone as beautiful and iconic as Gwyneth making her filming comeback after having her baby, then it's the performance that counts. She will set up the movie perfectly with a superb glittering performance." »

Paltrow "Desperate" for Peggy Lee Role

16 August 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar winning beauty Gwyneth Paltrow was so eager to play singing legend Peggy Lee, she offered to work for minimum pay. The Shakespeare In Love actress waived her usual $18 million-per-movie fee because she was desperate to secure the lead in independent film Every Word Is True, which has a budget of just $10.8 million. An insider says, "Gwyneth really wants to do this film. Money is not important." The film is about writer Truman Capote's bizarre friendship with convicted murderers Dick Hancock and Perry Smith, with showbiz sensation Peggy trying to persuade Capote to get away from the pair. Hollywood hunk Mark Wahlberg will play Smith and Sandra Bullock will take on the role of Capote's research assistant Harper Lee. »
