Quevenzhane Wallis’ Awesome Deal for ‘Annie’ Included This
What kind of perks did Quvenzhane Wallis receive for playing the title little orphan in 2014’s “Annie” reboot? Try WiFi.
According to documents acquired by TMZ, the 10-year-old actress was given unlimited WiFi in her trailer as part of her deal to star in Will Gluck’s film. Wallis, who at 9 became the youngest Best Actress nominee in Oscar history for her work in “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” was also paid $750,000 to appear in “Annie” (incentives and percentage points could raise her total income from the feature to well over $2 million).
“Annie,” which also stars Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz, is due out in theaters on Dec. 19, 2014. Wallis spent much of the fall filming the feature in New York.
Wallis is far from the only young actress to earn big money for her work. As TMZ also reported, 16-year-old Chloe Moretz was paid $500,000 for the film “If I Stay,” and she’ll also receive 15 percent of the profits from the film.
