George Clooney is one of the most famous and best-paid actors in Hollywood, but even he was willing to take a major pay cut for a passion project. Clooney accepted a salary of just $120,000 (well below his usual $20 million) for "Good Night, and Good Luck." — a film he co-wrote, directed and starred in. Lucky for George, the decision paid off and the film garnered a total of six Academy Award nominations. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
