Billy Boyd: I didn’t make any money from Lord Of The Rings movies

    actual quote:

    Q: you ever tempted to retire after Lord of the Rings and just go and live the good life in the sun somewhere?
    A: I don’t have any money!

    Q: You must have a couple of dimes?
    A: But we were unknown actors – we did it for peanuts, and for food.

    This is so misleading. The actual quote is from an interview:

    Q: you ever tempted to retire after Lord of the Rings and just go and live the good life in the sun somewhere?
    A: I don’t have any money!

    Q: You must have a couple of dimes?
    A: But we were unknown actors – we did it for peanuts, and for food.

    He was an employee not a partner. He contracted for work and got paid what he contracted for. The movie itself was a gamble. He did get fame and recognition for it. He is not complaining. Remember, hind sight is 20/20. Had he been greedy and not taken the risk where would he be today?
