10 Actors Who Made Insane Demands Before Accepting A Role

Acting is a job, but sometimes it is called show business. Before an actor is officially cast in a movie and has signed on the dotted line, a wealth of negotiations take place behind the scenes. Some famous actors use their star power to make particular demands before accepting roles.

Sometimes, the demand is about the way a character is portrayed, adding a scene or more, and even proposing to increase salary. While many of those are reasonable, some are downright ridiculous, giving us a glimpse into the mindset of actors who think showing up to work deserves a reward.

Below are 10 actors who made mind-boggling requests to appear in a movie.

#1 Tom Cruise needs stretchy G-string underwear
