Oscar winner Jamie Foxx went back to the bargaining table of "Dreamgirls"
People change you know. It's time that makes them change. But not with Jamie Foxx. It's famous names like Beyonce Knowles and Eddie Murphy that make him change. The Hollywood actor who previously priced himself out of the market to star in the upcoming film "Dreamgirls" has now made a comeback negotiation.
Foxx willingly offered producers of "Dreamgirls" to slash his salary to take part. He says "The first time, it was just me in the movie - no Eddie Murphy, no Beyonce. Then I hear Eddie's doing it, and I'm like, 'Hey, pay me a dollar.' I hear Beyonce's doing it, 'Pay me a quarter.' I just wanted to be part of that. At the end of the day, who cares, man? It's Eddie Murphy; he's my hero. If Dreamgirls works out as I think it will, it will be the greatest thing in the world, a real event. Maybe you won't get $15 million, maybe you get $3 million, maybe $2 million... (but) you are getting more than a paycheck."
