Leo DiCaprio - One Day Equals $5M


If you want Leonardo DiCaprio to star in your new commercial you better have just won the lottery. Leo just signed a deal to star in a television commercial for a Chinese cell phone company. Leo will work one day and earn $5M for the one day of work. Well, there is the traveling there and back of course. I mean he has to get a little something for his effort to get there. Can you imagine getting paid that much money for one day of work? This company must be pretty confident that having Leo talk into their phones must be going to make them a whole lot of money. While he is there maybe he can shoot Lost In Translation 2 - Off To China. Too bad Scarlett J is f**king Sean Penn because it could have worked.

Snarky comment.

Forever, American stars have been going to Japan for advert work and earning multimillion paydays. Why not Leo? He has the cred, after all. At least he is NOT a Kardashian.

Let's look at this another way.
Would you turn down $5 million for a day's work?
Didn't think so.
Although I have to say they're drastically overpaying.
Drastically.

I would love that kind of money, but I think I'd feel guilty taking it, just to shoot one commercial? No person on this earth is worth that. I don't know how Leo can take all that $ in good concience...but to each his own.

Leo does and gives a lot for the environment, animal habitat ($1 million for lions recently) and other charities, so I won't talk shit. Good for him.

Dating Victoria's Secret models isn't cheap.

RocketQueen, I agree, whatever he can get for a worthy cause is fine by me.
Nate F., ummm, good point LOL

come on he needs money! he did many commercials in Italy,Japan... this guy only won 75 millions $ last year (on Forbes s'opinion)
it's so weird for a "green" guy to sell cellphones in China !

linnea said...

Agree with Pomme - should he really be trying to sell more cells?

Can't believe this guy is still around, he reeks of the late 1990s to me.
