Ethan Hawke in 'The Purge'

Salary: $0 Upfront (Eventually took home a percentage of profits)

Ethan Hawke was willing to accept nothing upfront in order to star in the 2013 film "The Purge." The actor, who eventually received an undisclosed percentage of the movie's profits, spoke of his decision to accept the low-paying role in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter:

"There were no perks. No trailer, no driver, no BS, just a great role, a great director. Hell, on 'The Purge,' I slept on his couch the whole shoot." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Universal Pictures)
