Sometimes in life you take a little too much confidence, like when you have achieved your first niche in a car and try to park your minivan in a place where even a scooter does not fit. It happens to all of us, it's a classic of the human and inevitably, it also happens to actors. Sometimes there are some who were a little too greedy asking for a raise because they thought they were untouchable, but in the end no, they just got kicked out like old crap.
Since he was one of the first actors to take on the role of 007 (the very first being Barry Nelson) and the films were doing quite well, Connery started to think he was irreplaceable, so he asked for a million dollars and percentages of the proceeds to don the costume again soeyes, which he was refused before replacing him. Well after a while since he said he was fed up so he preferred to go and do other things like confess horrible things in interview .
It is not necessarily the most important role in the movie The Matrix and Marcus Chong is not necessarily a well-known actor. But hey, he was fighting his balls a bit and clearly thought he was a big star as he refused the salary of $ 250,000 to come back to the Matrix 2 and 3 films by asking for a million dollars and other stuff. So we told him it wasn't possible, so he accused the studio of threatening him (when obviously he was the one threatening the studio) and he tried to sue them but lost his case. We have to go down a bit, it's not because we had five lines in a big movie that we are the new Christian Clavier.
3. Hillary Duff: Lizzie McGuire
While all was going well for the young actress whose series was a success and the film had hit the Box Office, her his mother who was also his manager began asking for salary advances and a raise, after trying to make them understand that their requests were too high, Disney was forced to simply end the series and potential movie sequels. Then maybe that's how we got Hannah Montana which is one of the best Disney series , so it's okay.

4. Crispin Glover: Back to the Future
The one who plays Marty's father in the first film has asked for a pay rise while the preparation of the second installment. In an interview he revealed that the production offered him a much lower salary than the other supporting roles and that there was a clear desire to extricate his character after he offered to change a few things in the. When he asked to renegotiate, the producers then lowered the salary they had offered him by $ 25,000, which is still a bit of a signal that he was not wanted.

5. Terrence Howard: Iron Man
Okay, obviously the story is more complex than just asking for a raise because different versions of the story exist. It's not clear if Terrence Howard got kicked out of the franchise after the first one. movie because of that or his dealings with Robert Downey Jr. Anyway, from the second Iron Man movie, it's Don Cheadle who takes over the role ofJames Rhodes and Howard got kicked out.
6. Lauren Cohan: Walking Dead
The actress who played Maggie in TWD for almost ten years wanted to increase her pay a bit, which the production tried to negotiate with her until until she finally decides to go out and find other opportunities elsewhere. Another reason to read Walking Dead rather than to watch the series if you want my opinion which you don't care about but which I give anyway.

7. Grace Park and Daniel Dae Kim: Hawaii police force 'state
These two actors in the hit CBS series simply wanted a salary equal to the two other stars of the show who had been better paid than them for seven seasons already. chain simply decided to release the two actors at the start of season 8, the showrunner had even tweeted that Grace Park had decidedleaving for family reasons, which went wrong as she simply left because of her pay. Not very cool.

8. Bruce Willis: The expendables 3
You may remember the case since it started a little clash between Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis on Twitter. Basically Willis was to come back in the third episode for four days of filming, for which he was to be paid $ 3 million. But he wanted a million dollars a day or $ 4 million. So, well, he got himself released, don't mess around asking too much.

9. Rob Lowe : West Wing
In this series where he co-starred with Martin Sheen, Rob Lowe saw his salary stagnate while Sheen's continued to soar season after season. started pissing him off because hey, it's not really great fun to be the only jerk to never be augmented. So he decided to get out of the show, or he got kicked out, c is not very clear. But after he played in Parks and Recreations this handsome kid so it's cool.

10. Tom Cruise: Bienvenue chez les ch'tis
When Dany Boon proposed to Tom Cruise to play in Bienvenue chez les ch'tis, the latter asked for a salary far too high, which fact that he decided to take Line Renaud instead to play the same role. But at the same time the film is better without it so it's fine.
