Richard Dreyfuss Refuses to Promote "Jaws"

Posted: June 1st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Richard Dreyfuss Refuses to Promote "Jaws"Submit Comment
Actor Richard Dreyfuss has vowed to boycott promotional events for his 1975 movie hit "Jaws," because studio bosses refuse to pay him.

The actor will not attend a special 30th anniversary bash in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts - where the movie was shot.

And he insists he won't have anything to do with the Oscar-winning horror movie, until "greedy" studio bosses share some of the millions they make from the film - one of the highest grossing pictures of all time.

Dreyfuss tells the New York Post, "They asked me to come do the anniversary of Jaws. I said, 'No'. They said, 'Well, it's the anniversary.' 'Yeah it's the anniversary of you making a lot of money. And now you are going to make a lot more money. When are you going to make me an offer I can participate in?'"

Yeah, 2005? Anywho, Isn't Jaws' rights owned by Fox. If it is than this doesn't surprise me. Stay strong Dreyfuss, maybe these greedy bastards can start to get a clue.

I can't argue with him. They should compensate actors who are in such movies, why not? But I gotta ask, is he hard up on money? I mean Piranha, really?
