I haven't even mentioned that The Film Foundation also benefits from these sell-out adverts.

How so?
One example: When Scorsese partnered with Hennessey, they gave a quarter million to The Film Foundation

I think $3 million is what he got paid upfront for Gangs of New York alone. Lots of people at his age live through similar circumstances and don't have $3 million to lose. Unless he's secretly taken extreme measures to fuck up his assets, he's not doing ads because he's short on money. Mind also that he'd have a lot more money if so much of it didn't disappear up his nose through the 70s and 80s. Not that I have any problem with his habits (he made a lot of great films high), but, financially, it is what it is.
He didn't start making big money until 2002 with GONY, and he wound up giving back half his salary to cover budget overruns.

If a stranger walked up to you and said that you were making too much money, what would you think about that stranger's character?

It says at the end of the new "The Master" Trailer that the money recollected from the Special showing at the MusicBox theater will "Benefit THE FILM FOUNDATION".
Fuck this place..... I got a script to write.

Everytime someone references Seinfeld... an angel gets its wings.

Every time someone uses an apostrophe incorrectly, an angel loses its wings.

Couldn't resist... sorry.

You are getting your Foundations mixed up.

DETAILS: You're working with Hennessy. Why did you decide to appear in their advertisement?
Martin Scorsese: The Michael J. Fox Foundation—Hennessy is donating $250,000. The Foundation means a lot to me.

Sorry, I got my cognacs mixed up, too. Scorsese also partnered with LOUIS XIII to help The Film Foundation.

If a stranger walked up to you and said that you were making too much money, what would you think about that stranger's character?

To be fair, I never said he was making too much money. All I said was that he wasn't struggling financially, which, unless he's screwed his affairs very badly, he isn't. Even if he had to return half of his $3 million dollar salary, he took home for one film more than many people make in a lifetime. He isn't doing these ads because he personally needs the money, that's all I was saying. I don't care if he makes a billion dollars per picture. If someone's willing and able to pay it, good on him.

To answer your question though, in my personal circumstances, I would probably think the stranger was poor. If I was making millions of dollars every few couple years, I would probably think the stranger was right.

I asked you to describe the stranger's character, not his financial well-being.

Arnzilla, why are you talking in hypotheticals and "what if..?" scenarios?
