Here’s some information that might be of interest to you people. Liv Tyler and Sean Bean, both staying in the same hotel at a cost of $500 (New Zealand dollars) per night, booked in for a month. That’s just under $30,000 (or around $14,000 US) for accomodation costs only. Add living costs……and you get a good picture of how well New Line and Peter Jackson look after their actors and actresses.

Another example would be the story of one of the members of the crew, who have their own penthouse, which has a jacuzzi, and they get their own “wardrobe allowance”, “drinks allowance” etc etc…..very nice employment perks indeed.

Thanks to Blade for the tip!
