I just watched Beverly Hills Chihuahua and I wonder if these dog "actors" get paid? They sure make lots and lots of cash for Disney.
Let's put it this way: Those puppies in the upcoming Marley & Me don't make nearly so much as Jennifer Aniston, even if some of them are much cuter.
The average pay for an "animal actor" is a few hundred a day; a feature film could earn a pooch into the tens of thousands. As for who exactly gets the money, the animal's owner and the pet's talent agency each take a cut. But caring for Hollywood dogs costs a bundle, and oftentimes, I'm told, the venture turns out to be a wash. Or a doggy bath.

Why did Sasha Alexander leave NCIS?
Reportedly, it was her choice, and apparently the gamble has paid off. She has landed a new CBS show, and she's the star. It's a laugher called The Karenskys, about one of those large, eccentric, highlarious families that always seem to populate sitcoms.
I heard there is going to be a Sex and the City sequel. Please tell me it's true!!
OMG! Yes!!!! Totally!!!
Why do these celebs think they're so hot? I'm nobody, and I wouldn't change a thing.
Obviously you've never had the honor of discussing the finer points of The Secret with Oprah Winfrey, nor have you felt the white-hot fire of Lauren Conrad's creativity from the front row of one of her bleeding-edge fashion shows. Only the famous have such access, little man. You have my pity.
