Ewan McGregor Earns Minimum Wage

For the love of the arts!

Ewan McGregor earns millions making movies but has settled for earning minimum wage to perform Shakespeare on stage in London.

The 36-year-old star will earn a mere $790/week — standard minimum wage for actors in Britain — playing Shakespeare‘s arch villain Iago in Othello, opening Dec. 4th.

That’s minimum wage? With a 40-hour work week… minimum wage is $20/hour, which isn’t so bad.
