Clooney says he was only paid $1 million to play Batman.
Starting out his career, Clooney struggled as an actor and starred in a slew of B-movies before landing his big break on the TV series “ER” in the mid-1990s.
His fame leveled up when he played Batman in 1997’s “Batman & Robin.” However, the movie was panned by critics and fans. Clooney admits he didn’t get paid much to be in it.
In a 2020 interview with Howard Stern, the actor said though Arnold Schwarzenegger was paid $25 million to star as Mr. Freeze, he only got $1 million to play the Caped Crusader.
