    Nobody is worth $40M for three movies. Sorry, they are just people and it’s ridiculous that they get paid so much when the average person is making around $30,000 per year and wondering if they’ll be able to keep a roof over their heads.

    Shows how screwed up our priorities have gotten.

    I totally agree! Pay them less, lower the price of a theatre ticket and snacks and maybe, just maybe, the theatre might fill up!!

    He looks Persian to me. Persians are Aryans, they’re not Arabs.

    He does not look Persian to me! I thought a Persian was a type of cat….:)

    He is hot, he’d be even hotter if he would shower once in a while!
