Steven Spielberg’s little leading lady in “The BFG” is only 11, but she’s gonna be counting a lot of zeroes soon … at least based on the sweet deal she scored with the mega producer/director.
Ruby Barnhill‘s minor’s contract says she’ll make $85k for the first movie … based on the bestselling kids’ book about a little girl who befriends a 24-foot tall giant. And if this turns out to be another Spielberg blockbuster … it could unlock a lot more cash for Ruby.
Ruby’s contract with Dreamworks — which was filed in L.A. County Court ’cause she’s a kid — says the studio could pick her up for 2 more flicks with $250k and $400k paydays! And yes … that’s before bonuses.
No pressure, Spielberg … it’s just a little girl’s hopes and dreams.
