Chanel Pays Nicole Kidman $12 Million to Appear in Ad Campaign
Getting paid $12 million to star in a two hour Hollywood movie is common. Not so common is a $12 million pay check to appear in a two minute ad.
Chanel No. 5 is paying Nicole Kidman a rumored $12 million to appear in the company's Australian ad campaign wearing $42 million worth of jewelry all to promote a tiny little bottle of perfume. Baz Luhrmann, who directed Kidman in Moulin Rouge, directed the three day shoot. Two minutes - $12 million. Just let that sink in for a few.
