Leonardo DiCaprio made $5 million this month for one day worth of work. The actor, who often makes upwards of $20 million per movie, plus a cut of the gross, starred in a Chinese cell phone commercial which paid the big bucks.
The salary news was broken by E! News who says that the Guangdong OPPO Mobile Telecommunications Corporation handed over the cash to one of the world’s biggest stars for a single ad spot appearance that will broadcast throughout Asia.
It’s also apparently not the only deal Leonardo has in the works, he also hold sendorsement deals with high end watch manufacturer Tag Heuer and Suzuki.
Celebrities in the United States often appear in overseas commercials to endorse products, unfortunately most of those oftentimes silly commercials never make it stateside, here’s hoping to a YouTube appearance for this DiCaprio gem.
