It’s no secret that the cast of Ocean’s Eleven was a star-studded group. With the likes of George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt, it was considered to be a dream-team of actors. However, because there were so many renowned actors, it meant that they all couldn’t be compensated as they usually would on any other film.
Julia Roberts had just finished her Academy Award-winning film, Erin Brockovich, but still agreed to lower pay. In the end, the stars didn’t mind because it was an opportunity for them to all work together which may not have happened otherwise.
