what is the most expensive

Saturday, January 13, 2007

Who is the most expensive actor in the world? The question should be what, not who, and the answer is a mouse. Stuart Little demanded a hefty price tag of $50,000 to $100,000 per four second shot to create. According to Forbes from June 2004 to June 2005 Mel Gibson earned $185 million making him the most expensive actor to hire for a year. He ranked #3 of most expensive celebrities behind George Lucas and Oprah Winfrey. In 1998 Jerry Seinfeld earned $267 million for his role in Seinfeld. The most expensive actor in a movie can be disputed as many actors receive percentages of profits. We believe Tom Cruise to be the most expensive actor. Although he did not receive a single penny as a salary, his 20% profit sharing for War of the Worlds (2005) will surely set the record. Who is the most expensive movie actress in the world? Word around Hollywood is Reese Witherspoon is now the most expensive actress in Hollywood. Reese will star in the new horror film, Our Family Trouble and gross a whopping $29,000,000. She now leads the board and puts Julia Roberts in second place for her $24,000,000 for Mona Lisa Smile. Reese Witherspoon was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana but was raised in Tennessee. She is now 29 years old and has been acting seen the age of 15. She does nothing but amaze us with her career and her accomplishments winning “Best Actress” for her role as June Carter in Walk the Line on March 5, 2006.

If you look purely at production cost King Kong (2005) edges out Superman Returns (2006) by a paltry $3 million USD. The tab for King Kong ran $207 million while Superman Returns lightened investors wallets by only $204 million. If you factor in inflation then War and Peace (1968) blows away the competition, costing the equivalent of $560 million 2005 dollars while Cleopatra (1963) comes in a distant second at $286 million 2005 dollars. War and Peace took 7 years and $100 million to produce. Image Hosted by King Kong (2005) What was the most expensive flower in the world? In Guangdong, China the Shenzhen Nongke Group, involved in agricultural science research, grew an orchid in 2005. It was quite an ugly orchid, but an anonymous buyer at an auction would probably disagree with us as he or she bid 1.68 million yuan for the ugly orchid. SO just how much is 1.68 million yuan? It's roughly $202,000.00 USD and that's just how much the world's most expensive flower sold for. Image Hosted by The World's Most Expensive Flower What is the most expensive ice cream in the world?

In 1991 a Beverly Hills company purchased a letter written by Abraham Lincoln on January 08 1863 for $748,000.00 The letter was written to Major General John Alexander McClernand defending the Emancipation Proclamation. Here's the letter: Abraham Lincoln January 8, 1863 Executive Mansion, Washington, January 8. 1863. Major General McClernand My dear Sir Your interesting communication by the hand of Major Scates is received. I never did ask more, nor ever was willing to accept less, than for all the States, and the people thereof, to take and hold their places, and their rights, in the Union, under the Constitution of the United States. For this alone have I felt authorized to struggle; and I seek neither more nor less now. Still, to use a coarse, but an expressive figure, broken eggs can not be mended. I have issued the emancipation proclamation, and I can not retract it. After the commencement of hostilities I struggled nearly a year and a half to get along without touching the "institution"; and when finally I conditionally determined to touch it, I gave a hundred days fair notice of my purpose, to all the States and people, within which time they could have turned it wholly aside, by simply again becoming good citizens of the United States. They chose to disregard it, and I made the peremptory proclamation on what appeared to me to be a military necessity. And being made, it must stand. As to the States not included in it, of course they can have their rights in the Union as of old. Even the people of the states included, if they choose, need not to be hurt by it. Let them adopt systems of apprenticeship for the colored people, conforming substantially to the most approved plans of gradual emancipation; and, with the aid they can have from the general government, they may be nearly as well off, in this respect, as if the present trouble had not occurred, and much better off than they can possibly be if the contest continues persistently. As to any dread of my having a "purpose to enslave, or exterminate, the whites of the South," I can scarcely believe that such dread exists. It is too absurd. I believe you can be my personal witness that no man is less to be dreaded for undue severity, in any case. If the friends you mention really wish to have peace upon the old terms, they should act at once. Every day makes the case more difficult. They can so act, with entire safety, so far as I am concerned. I think you would better not make this letter public; but you may rely confidently on my standing by whatever I have said in it. Please write me if any thing more comes to light. Yours very truly A. LINCOLN.
