I’m really looking forward to the upcoming Superman film, Man of Steel. Everything I’ve seen and heard about it looks like it’ll be a good movie that will be a big hit and make a Lot of money. That would make its star very happy. British actor Henry Cavill is playing the iconic American superhero, the first superhero, and besides looking the part, he also has a great attitude about money, one that’s not at all typical for actors. In an interview with British GQ, he says:

“God, all those people who say, “Oh no, the money doesn’t matter.’ Yeah, right. They’re either mad, or they’re lying. I mean, come on. “Oh no, don’t pay me anything, it’s for the arts.” I’m sorry, no. Pay me the money. I’m not doing it for charity. I’m not a nonprofit organization. Plus it’s expensive flying back and forward to LA. You need a job that pays money.”

And then there’s this from his co-star, Michael Shannon, who’s playing Superman villain, General Zod:

“I really admire Henry’s work ethic… I really haven’t seen anybody in this business work quite that hard. Obviously it’s a tremendous responsibility, and an intimidating one, to wear that suit. But he had the confidence and the work ethic to accomplish it.”

Good to hear that the actor playing Superman not only loves making money, and isn’t shy to say so, but it seems like he works hard to earn it as well.

June 14th. Can’t wait.

    Egads, an actor who's not an empty skull full of mush! Woo!

    • Micha Elyi

      Shuttling to and from LA, he's just a migrant laborer doing a job Americans won't do.

  • Dottedsun

    Yeah, I do work for money too. I always will. The other people, just lie.

  • Galo Felipe Z

    Well, let us remmeber that some businessmen are making a profit by have illegal immirgants. Conservatives should be opposed to this since it expands the welfare state in the long term, illegal hispanics usually have a larger than average brood who need free and reduce lunch programs. Also, heavily lllegal cities like Santa Ana have high out of wedlock births particulary among the second generation which means more welfare.

      You made a statement that is 100% true.

      Free and fair trade generates wealth.

      The importing of the impoverished to displace American workers
      and reduce us to poverty only shifts wealth.

      It makes most Americans poor while it enriches a very few.

      Milton Friedman said so and argued against the current business practice.

      The above also includes out sourcing and H1 b programs.

      Romney lost because he blamed the displaced Americans for becoming poor.

      Then he accused them of being lazy and addicted to welfare.

    If the capitalist do not rally the middle class they will disappear too. The masses from the left will take care of IT.

    Cynthia, Conservatives ARE against the rampant illegal influx, but their view is never in the national biased news media.

  • Smitty

    Let me amend the above statement: Conservatives' views are not reported widely enough in the news media. If it were, however, would it make a difference in the federal government's present stance on not enforcing laws that are already on the books? Face it, illegals have been allowed to be a potential powerful political force in the U.S., and unless leadership is finally shown at the top, that situation won't change.

    Conservatives should NOT be all up in arms about illegals. That kind of talk just REEKS of protectionism. Are we against free trade now?
