Miley's 'Bolt' Contract

Comes Back to Bite Her

7/13/2009 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

 Miley Cyrus's 'Bolt' Contract Comes Back to Bite Her Miley Cyrus made some sweet money doing the voice of Penny in the movie 'Bolt' -- but she came this close to making a whole lot more.

We got our hands on Miley's contract -- filed with the court -- which says she was paid $10,000 a day for the voice-over work.

But here's the rub, if the movie had grossed $125 million domestically, Miley would have pulled in an extra $175,000 ... and then another huge pile of cash for every $25 million above that.

The final domestic gross: $114 million. Ouch.

WOW    

wow. That's all I can say is wow. You people are awful. You don't even know her so why are you so mean. To the person who says you hopes she dies that is awful really awful. 1st you dont know her. 2nd you should never say that. All of you people are horrible. How would you feel if you were her reading this?? Personally I think that she is very talented at acting and singing. D you people even know how many people try to get on disney channel, if you don't know it's alot. I don't get why you people say this about Miley and not Demi and Selena. If they did a movie like this they would be getting paid alot!!!! Demi and Selena have to have their faces on every page a a magazine and your dissing Miley. Dis them why don't you??? Personally I like Miley the most out of all disney stars then demi then selena. So honestly think why do you actually hate her I bet none of you could give a good reason .....

to play the DA here. yes she made a ton of money but given the number of girls that flock to see all things Miley, she could have demanded a lot more. the scaled pay actually makes a lot of sense. how cracked is it that someone can make $10 million on a movie that barely covers its budget much less makes a profit. the bigwigs will tell you that that pay is cause Mr X is supposed to bring in the box office. but they don't reclaim part of the pay when he doesn't. so lets pay them less up front and give them bonuses for a job very very well done. like this contract would have

FYI    

Username "TIm," the article says that the film grossed $114 million domestically and this number is accurate. It did a little better internationally than it did in the US but TMZ was correct on their figure. You can verify this information by checking out this site. Please don't take this as being offensive I just wanted to clarify the information. http://www.the-numbers.com/movies/2008/BOLT.php
