Tara Reid Gets Paid Lowest On American Pie Reunion


I think Tara Reid is pretty lucky to be getting $250,000 for her return to her role in American Pie. I think the fact she got that much is because producers really wanted the entire cast so were not going to quibble too much. I guarantee you that if she were offered some movie right now she would get way less than half that. Definitely under $100k. Yes, it seems like a lot outside of Hollywood, but when Jason Biggs gets $5M, then you know things are crazy stupid. The Hollywood Reporter managed to get all the salaries from the stars in the movie and someone in the producer's office is probably being yelled at right now and the agents for the actors are probably wondering if they could have got more or if they got played. Whoever the agent is for Natasha Lyonne should be patting themselves on the back because she got somewhere between 500K and 750K for reprising her role. She probably has not made that much money combined in every year since the last movie was released. The Hollywood Reporter has all the salaries.

A dollar is too much to pay ANY of them for this shitfest.

I honestly think the original fans of this franchise are totally over it by now. This will NOT make a lot of money, is my guess.

who wouldn't want a piece of that pie.

Allison Hannigan should be getting $5 mil before Jason Biggs.

"Allison Hannigan should be getting $5 mil before Jason Biggs."

Amen! She should have been equal with Biggs.

"I honestly think the original fans of this franchise are totally over it by now."

Nope. Just rewatched them last week, and am very excited for this new one. :)

Guess I was just speakin' for myself then, Moosh! ;)

Alyson hannigan deserves just as much as biggs and sean william scott, if not more. She is just as big if not a bigger star in my opinion especially given the fact that she has done HIMYM.

Rita said...

Don't get why Tara's getting the least. She should be getting as much as the other forgettable characters. And yeah I agree, in what world is Jason Briggs better than Hannigan?

RQ - who's getting deleted?

Feisty said...

@Rita - Les Suckno or whatever his name is. Apparently he's like Beetlejuice - say his name too much and he appears.

Mother Campfire said...

As long as Lyonne doesn't run off to her dealer and spend the check on H, I'm excited she's getting that kind of paycheck. She was an excellent actress (well, not in this franchise actually) and hopefully it sparks more interest in her for other parts.

Rita said...

Feisty - thanks. I read his post in the 15 000 earlier. Took a shower. Still wonder if it's true about Kelly Ripa and black d*ck.

How the heck does Hannigan get paid so low?

RocketQueen said...

Rita- Les Suckno. Some people here find him amusing, personally, I think he's scum. This particular comment of his included the word sluts and niggers. Classy.

Rita said...

RQ - wow, did not read his comment on time.

Any apple fritters today? Eat whatever you like, diet be damned RQ.

I know there are some of you who probably think I pull out the sexism card too much- but that's still what I think this is-
Though I liked this movie a whole lot, it WAS ripe with horrid stereotypes surrounding gender. It comes as NO surprise to me that many of the young women from the movie are making much less than their male counterparts.
Hell, one girl even exposes her private parts (breasts) in one of the movies and she STILL is receiving less than 1/5 the amount the two alpha dudes are getting from the movie.
And Hannigan SHOULD be getting as much- this is so effing lame.

RocketQueen said...

Rita - nope, but I'm having (veggie) chili cheese fries for dinner! :)

Lelaina Pierce said...

^Yum, sounds good!

I loved, loved the first movie. But the ones thereafter? Meh. If the writing is better than any of the sequels, I might rent it.

I still love Jason Biggs. Is Mena Suvari on board?

Paisley said...

I'm surprised Alyson isn't getting at least the same money as Biggs or a piece of the gross, but I don't know the size of her part in this movie. Maybe it's small.

Tara got the lowest salary because the producers are probably iffy on whether or not she'll be a problem on set. Even then, she might not give them anything they can use.

Lyonne seems to be back on track and it looks like she's getting rewarded for that effort. And again, we don't know how they plan to use all the characters in the movie and who will have more lines.

i heard this on the radio this morning and i felt bad for poor little tara. her life is such a mess (yes her own doing). but she was once so cute and bubbly and kind of had a certain somethng. she's not like lohan in that she just goes quietly about her business. still a mess, but not in your face about it. anyway...

Barton Fink said...

Yahoo News was running some kind of story announcing: Tara Reid Is Getting Savagely Screwed by American Pie, and -- well, you can see why I laughed. Tara Reid being brutally screwed is hardly news, honey.

weezy said...

The producers may have had to pay an increased insurance premium to get Reid on the payroll at all. I'm just amazed she passed the physical.
