    Surely you're not going to say that Connery hasn't done stuff just for the paycheque? :tongue:  I appreciate that he's now pretty much retired, but he's got a phenomenal standard of life because he's made a shitload of films, and some of them were crap.

    I think you're missing part of what I'm getting at: if an actor is turning down roles, his public image fades. He has to keep himself in the public eye so he's perceived as a success by filmmakers, and will therefore be offered more roles. Of course, he could live a more frugal life, but then why not stick to stage acting? Not as much money, but more chance to practice one's art. You have to want the fame and fortune to be a Hollywood actor, and part of the price of that is going to be some bad films.

    Showin' your age and lack of literary credibility. You just don't know any better.

    Go read some real literature instead of filling your mind with tripe.

    Aaaaand just because it fits the thread:

    Sean Connery did make a shitload of flims, however most of them were good, money grabbing films. I'm sure he did some junky ones here and there but the reason he was able to stay with the art (that's what acting is), and keep having fun in his roles he made the money to retire. What I'm saying is if you continuously do films for the sake of money and money only and come out in the public eye saying as such, people's opinions of you will go down. Its negative feelings that transfer onto an audience and can leave distaste in the minds of those who may have had fun watching your role on screen. its also to the point where the two actors Robert and Kristen are purposefully playing their roles in a negative way. Its distracting as both an actor, and as a regular movie goer to see horrible acting happening and know the actor can do better.

    It's like going to a Car dealership and having the salesman give about %50 of his effort towards selling the car. It aint gonna sell. Why because his believability is out the window.

    The opposite of this is someone like Jason Statham. He's done horrible stuff movie wise over the past couple years in terms of story and actual roles and hell even payout, but the point is, is he's doing what he loves. He's actually having fun acting in movie lik Crank and the Transporter, whereas Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart make it a struggle for themselves, and for me that just seems dumb. But I guess to each his own. And for now I'll shut up cause I'm prolly not gonna change anybody's mind on the subject and we'll agree to disagree.


    Also @ BenPrice, Naw for serious man. I am workin on my career right now. I'm currently working out of Modesto, CA. Check out my Facebook if you care to go a step further. vvvvvvvvvvv It's down in my sig. Click on the Goofy musical link to see me and my friends current project.
