Damn... Leonardo DiCaprio got PAID for "Inception"
 

 
Eight-figure salaries for big movie stars in big Hollywood movies is no big news — ever since Jim Carrey pulled the first $20 million paycheck for The Cable Guy, it’s been pretty commonplace for the biggest stars to be compensated wildly for their services. But even compared to his biggest peers, Leonardo DiCaprio has pulled in some impressive bank for his starring role in Inception.

EOnline is reporting that DiCaprio is set to earn more than $50 MILLION for his dreamy services rendered. Leo has managed this exorbitant payday thanks to him forgoing his usual initial upfront fee and instead opting for first-dollar gross.

It’s not unusual for stars to go for back-end pay once the film breaks even — Tom Cruise did that in his latest film Knight and Day. But clever Leo starts to get paid as soon as the ticket sales come tumbling in, regardless of if the film makes back its budget or not. And since the film is projected to make roughly $750 million worldwide by the time it’s through in the theaters, well, if Leo suddenly finds himself buying a castle or two on the spur of the moment, he should be fine.

Meanwhile, his co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt was instead clearly paid in rights to Carole King’s back catalog.

I love how Leo went from being a joke to a lot of people in Titanic (Yes, I know he was in What's Eating Gilbert Grape before Titanic, but Titanic was pretty much the first movie most people saw Leo in), to being such a well loved actor by almost everyone.

I think that's pretty much because he has tried his best to distance himself away from the pretty boy persona that was given to him. So, he ended up being really careful with the projects he picks, and instead aligns himself with top name talent (i.e. Chris Nolan, Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott, etc.). So, that may have something to do with it.
