Former model and actress Molly Sims spoke out recently and revealed that cover girls don’t make as much money as you might think they do.
When talking to Popeater she disclosed that along with herself, fellow Sports Illustrated swimsuit models and cover girls Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum earn what some would deem a paltry paycheck for a lot of work:
“Everyone makes about $300 for a week’s work…basically you are paying them to be on the cover”
If you’re a model, actor or entertainer, sometimes you have to take a look at the bigger picture. A perfect example is Molly’s disclosure. A $300 paycheck for a weeks work modeling may not seem like much but appearing on the cover of SI could change your career and take you to supermodel status.
The bottom line is, sometimes we have to step back and take a look at the complete picture before making a rushed decision…BUT don’t get taken advantage of!
