The former Cougar Town actress says these days, she makes the bulk off her earnings off social media, not on acting gigs.
Although she recognizes some fans won’t be thrilled with celebs who have “sold out” their Instagram page for sponsors, Busy Phillips said “I gotta be honest with you, I didn’t make a ton of money as an actor last year. I made more of my money doing that kind of stuff, like the partnerships with brands.”
“I’m not above it, guys,” the “Vice Principals” actress said in a video on Thursday, April 27. “I just only choose things that I genuinely like and, like, would want to partner with, like, for instance, my Michaels [craft store] partnership, which, you know, is my favourite thing of all time. And I’m doing one next week, I think, that feels like me.”
On the one hand, no shame in the game. Get your coins however you can, there are bills to pay. On the other hand, it speaks volumes as to the scarcity of good roles for smart women in Hollywood. And that’s a shame. We need more Busy Phillipses in ours lives.
