George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Charlize Theron’s careers on ‘life support’ due to COVID-19?

Share

George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Charlize Theron, and several other celebrities’ careers have been hit hard by COVID-19.

According to National Enquirer, production on a slew of movies and TV shows have been put on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic. And the industry that features George Clooney, Cruise, and Theron has, reportedly, already lost at least $160 billion.

George Clooney, other celebrities careers are on life support

Due to this, the tabloid claimed that several actors’ careers are currently on life support because of the deadly virus.

“Hollywood’s infrastructure has collapsed due to the virus. If any actor isn’t working, they provide no commissions to their agents, no fees to their managers, publicists, assistants, drivers, security or assistants, Even megastars are advised to lay off employees while the industry is frozen – so maids, housekeepers, and nannies find themselves out of work. Worse yet, when the machine finally starts grinding again, it will take a long time to lure audiences back,” an unnamed publicist told the tabloid.

Tom Cruise, Charlize Theron, Vin Diesel’s movies delayed

Cruise was on his second day of filming Mission: Impossible when the production was halted until further notice. But they, reportedly, managed to get special permission to continue filming. However, this cost thousands of dollars.

Fast & Furious was, reportedly, unluckier because the movie was pushed back to 2021. Theron, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and John Cena are gravely affected by the delays in production.

However, the hardest part of the recent lockdown for Theron had to do with homeschooling her two children.

Other films that were also postponed include Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 1984, and Keanu Reeves’ John Wick 4.

Disney+ charges $29.99 for ‘Mulan’ streaming

According to National Enquirer, even Disney is affected by COVID-19. Mulan was supposed to make it to the theaters in March. But following several months of delays, they decided to release the movie on Disney+.

However, those who are subscribed to the streaming platform, reportedly, have to pay $30 to see Mulan alone. This way. the production company can recover some of its losses.

“If the biggest company in the business is hurting that badly, how do you think others are faring? The coronavirus could wipe out almost every independent production company in America, maybe even big studios like Paramount, Columbia, and Warner Bros,” the source said.

George Clooney, Amal Clooney make a generous donation

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Clooney gave a huge sum of money to help other actors who couldn’t get back to work.

According to Deadline, George Clooney and his wife, Amal Clooney donated $1 million to The Motion Picture and Television Home, the SAG-AFTRA FUND, and the Los Angeles Mayors Fund in April.
