Model Salaries

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”

Here’s my two cents:

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!

    No offense to all of the pretty models, but I wish that more pretty
    girls would aspire to be beautiful doctors and lawyers. A pretty
    face and body will not endure for years, but education endures.

  2. It’s true you do need to look at the bigger picture, sometimes it is definitely worth the wait however you also have to make sure no one is taking advantage of you.
