| IT'S A FACT....
|They're all true.
We wouldn't lie to you honey.
*** One in four homeless South Koreans
has a credit card.
*** Jean-Claude Van Damme was cast as the
original Predator, but quit because he was
too small for the alien's bodysuit.
*** On the Penny Abraham Lincoln faces to the
right, while on every other currently minted
U.S. coin, the president looks left.
*** Citizens of Chile, Austria and Egypt can
be imprisoned for not voting.
*** Five jell-O flavors that failed: Celery,
coffee, cola, apple and chocolate.
*** Hippie fearing Disneyland refused to let
in guys with long hair during the 1970's.
WHAT ACTOR HAS MADE THE MOST MONEY DURING
HIS OR HER CAREER?
*** If you're asking who is the person ever to act,
then that's likely Paul McCartney, star of
Beatle's movies, and the superlative
"Give my Regards to Broadstreet" who's valued
at nearly $2 billion. Problem is he's only earned
a tiny fraction of that money through acting.
*** Same with Oprah, whose roles in the "Color Purple"
and "Beloved" barely boosted her $1.1 billion dollard worth.
*** And while people tout the Olsen twins as teen billionaies,
the stars of "Full House" and all your dirtiest thoughts
are worth a paltry $300 million combined, mostly for
having a slew products bearing their names.
SO THE RICHEST ACTOR who's made his money
almost entirely through acting is probably TOM CRUISE
His net worth, minus all the Scientology dues, is estimated
at about $300 million. And the sweet deal he struck
to star in teh upcoming "War of the Worlds" trilogy--
taking a share of the box office and merchandising profits
instead of a paycheck--may double his fortune.
