Barkhad Abdi is Broke - 'Captain Phillips' Oscar Nominee Reveals Money Issues

Barkhad Abdi, the Oscar-nominated actor from Captain Phillips, has revealed that he is broke despite being in the running for the gold this evening.

The 28-year-old actor earned $65,000 for his performance in the film, but that was two years ago and he has not acted in a movie since then. After wrapping his work on Captain Phillips, Barkhad went to work at his brother’s mobile phone store in Minneapolis, but he quit when the movie was released.

“How I thought about it was, like, When the movie came out, reviews either gonna be good or bad,” he told the New Yorker. “Either way, I cannot be working here.”

Barkhad just recently won the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor and he is currently reading scripts to find his next movie role. We can’t wait to see him in another film after his amazing performance in Captain Phillips!
