Abigail Breslin

$165K For 12 Days Of Work

EXCLUSIVE

Abigail Breslin Salary
Teen actress Abigail Breslin earned more for shooting "Ender's Game" than most people make in an entire year ... and she did it in less than 2 weeks.  

Breslin -- who turned 16 while shooting the flick with Harrison Ford in 2012 -- was paid $165K for 12 days of shooting ... according to her contract, which was recently approved by a judge. 

If the movie did well ... she would have gotten way more in bonuses ... and a sequel would have scored her a $750K payday

Too bad for her ... the film fizzled.

So did she have to wait 2 years to get paid? Am I missing something?

That was ages ago. She's 18 now. Crying over boys and tweeting about how much her life sucks now.

The top actors in Hollywood earn 20 to 30 mil a movie. With her resume, and already being an Oscar nominee, 165K for two weeks of work, sounds about right. Ugh, lucky.

LOL, her virginity was probably included in that price. Not worth it in my opinion. Truth.

I am not a real big fan of kids getting paid big money like this without going to college or earning money like most adults. I think these kids should be in school with their own piers and learning social skills and not turning them into adults before they are 18. This is just my opinion. Look how many kid actors are messed up. Very few end up OK like Ron Howard.

And que all the jealous nobody's who trash this girl because of jealousy and envy; also, feel as though they somehow for some reason work harder and deserve more than some little girl! Green isn't pretty on humanity! Just take a look at the wicked witch!

Battlefield Earth was a masterpiece compared to Ender's Game. This movie Ender's Game was quite possibly written by individuals who would be better served churning butter on a farm!

I once worked for a company and we paid a 12 YEAR OLD kid $8,000 for 2 hours of VOICEOVER work. There's a lot of $$ to be made in Hollywood.
