Naomi Watts doesn’t think Hollywood should take a pay cut during the global economic downturn.
The Aussie actress, 40, believes she and her fellow entertainers deserve their fees for spreading a little cheer during the hard times.
She says, “I’m doing a movie now where it’s the least I’ve been paid in about ten years.
“People are willing to go to work now for that when ordinarily that wouldn’t happen. I think we may be more open to negotiation but I think the art world tends to thrive in times of recession.
“We need the escapism. We need stories to be told for us to take ourselves away from the reality of our situations or circumstance.”
