Many actors claim that they never look at their box office numbers, and that the real joy of the process was the actual production. But since we all live in the real world, one must assume these movie stars are keeping track of their success and failures, especially since a smash hit could dramatically increase their asking price.
During our recent interview with Hugh Jackman, the actor admits that whenever someone tells you they don’t pay attention to the numbers, try not to believe them! Jackman surely wasn’t disappointed with last weekend’s numbers, as The Wolverine clawed its way to the #1 spot!
