MATT DAMON recently did a European ad for Nespresso with GEORGE CLOONEY. Matt was onscreen for about 20 seconds, and he was paid $3 million. That averages out to $150,000 PER SECOND. So what else could one second of Matt Damon's time get you? How about a four-year degree from UCLA?
Here's what some other celebrities' time is worth . . .
BRITNEY SPEARS was paid $15 million to be a judge on "X Factor" last season. She did 28 episodes, at 60-minutes each . . . giving her an hourly rate of $535,000. So just one hour of Britney's time could clothe KATE MIDDLETON, the Duchess of Cambridge, for over FIVE YEARS. Kate's wardrobe costs about 100-grand a year.
RIHANNA made $98,000 by just sitting in the front row of a Karl Lagerfeld runway show . . . for 30 MINUTES. So she made enough in those 30 minutes to buy three Mercedes coupes.
KHLOE KARDASHIAN makes $13,000 per sponsored Tweet. That's $98 per character. So one character in a Khloe Kardashian Tweet can buy you a dress and matching earrings from the Kardashian Kollection.
How convenient is this? CHRIS BROWN knows of a drug that would be PERFECT for his anger management problems. And it's called . . . MARIJUANA. Apparently, Chris had been taking medical marijuana for years, but a judge made him stop earlier this year and start taking more traditional antidepressants. But a source says, quote, "Those make Chris feel very numb and he felt that everything around him was fuzzy. He felt dull and thirsty all the time."
HUGH JACKMAN was treated for SKIN CANCER on his nose. He Tweeted, quote, "[My wife] said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!" Hugh didn't say how it was treated, but he posted a picture of his bandaged nose.
RODNEY DANGERFIELD'S widow keeps a Tupperware container full of his sweat in the fridge. They started collecting it after hearing that a handkerchief with Elvis' sweat on it sold for a lot of money. She says, quote, "Rodney had a 'eureka' moment. He said, 'I sweat more than anybody! My sweat has to be as good as Elvis' sweat, right?'"
