Do you think actors/actresses or people in the entertainment industry should be allowed to paid as much as they're being paid?
Shouldn't doctors, engineers be paid more? I' ve never seen a doctor make it on Forbes 100 wealthiest list.
I don't mind that they get paid that much, but they should bring back the custom from Roman times and get stoned to death for bad performances...
I've never understood why they make so much money either. At the end of the day, entertainers are not as important as other professions.

And who pays them. If doctors made more we'd be paying with higher insurance premiums.
It doesn't bother me. If a film makes 200 million and a large part of that success is because of the actor, who cares if they get ten percent of it.
People who worry about actors getting paid too much have too little else going on in their lives.
Only great actors like Meryl Streep, Jessica Lange, etc. deserve a good salary. Kim Kardashian...no!
They're not overpaid. If a comedian is able to draw millions of people into a theater for their "product" they deserve a percentage of that.
No one complains about the person who invented Krispy Kreme making a lot from their product.
They're not overpaid -- the vast majority of them don't make a living & have to supplement with waiting tables, temping, etc. It's a different distribution of incomes than 'normal' professions. Most actors make v. little, and a few hit the jackpot. The rest delude themselves that they will someday.
There are a small number in Hollywood making regular money doing TV parts, & a small number in NYC doing Broadway parts, both plus commercials, but that's not steady by any means. That's why they are overjoyed if they get on a hit TV series -- it means they're not going to retire penniless.
If a movie or a TV show makes a billion dollars for someone, I'm fine with the actor getting their share.
If it's a question of big money, I'd rather see more go to the artists, and less to the corporations that own the product.
