While us common folks are struggling to pay our bills, our mortgages, and to keep our jobs, actors like Jim Carrey haven't been effected by the recession yet.
"I'm not in a recession. I'm doing incredibly well. I just wanna be honest. I really am kicking ass," Carrey jokingly told Hollyscoop during the 'Yes Man' press conference in Los Angeles.
While we're sure Carrey was just joking, making $20 million plus per flick doesn't hurt. Even if he only made one movie every couple of years he still wouldn't be hurting for cash.
While Jim Carrey is "kicking ass," actress Kate Hudson confessed she's feeling the economic pinch. “I think it’s a really weird time and I think that everyone is feeling it,” Hudson told reporters last week at a Los Angeles press conference for her new film, Bride Wars.
Celebrities live their lives in the lap of luxury anyway, so they would be the last to be effected by the recession. Well that and they never have to actually pay for anything.
