Maybe Miley Cyrus Is Over Hannah Montana Because Hannah Montana Is Underpaid


Miley Cyrus makes $15,000 per episode of Hannah Montana. That sounds like a lot of money — until you learn that, according to the New York Post, Miranda Cosgrove, Selena Gomez, Dylan and Cole Sprouse, and Keke Palmer all make more. Basically, when it comes to child actors, a bunch of kids Andy Rooney (and most adults without tweenage children) has definitely never heard of make more than Cyrus, a person that Andy Rooney has maybe, possibly heard of. Cyrus, who as the article points out is "worth a billion," has only earned $1,245,000 from the show itself, not nearly enough to buy Kanye's house. Meanwhile, Cosgrove, of iCarly, earns $180,000 per episode, and Two and a Half Men's Angus T. Jones makes $250,000. Cyrus needs to speak with her agents, or we can all look forward to more of this.
