  • The answer is obvious

    Actors DEFINITELY do not deserve all that money AT ALL. They are being treated like gods and enjoy acting out what other script writers create. After that, they waste all the money on useless luxuries and booze and parties. They barely do any hard work. Doctors on the other hand, work so hard at medical school and go under so much mental torture to get to where they are. They save and improve so many lives by sacrificing their wellbeing as they have to work long shifts which is very taxing on their mental health. They have to see so many gruesome things and deal with so many arguements with patients every single day!!!!!!!

  • Yes, celebreties should make more than doctors.

    Doctors are not rock stars. They get to be rich and marry someone way out of their league. They don't need to make more than celebrities. They do not bring some unique talent to the world. They just do a job that they were trained to do. Celebreties bring a unique talent to the table.

  • Medical profession vs entertainment

    Entertainment = providing fun, happy, relaxing
    Medical= saving lives, maintaining life, emotional, physical, mental, physcological, legal, knowledge, skills;
    If you think actors should get paid more then maybe you should go see an actor when your ill instead of a doctor; we can live without actors but NOT without doctors

  • Crazy!! No way

    Actors entertain and are not bringing anything to the table. Most do anything and push immoral behavior. Doctors, Scientists, Educators, and many others are underpaid. The world would be a better place without Hollywood. Brainwashing children and pretending to be great people who they are nothing like. Then we worship them like false gods/ idols, crazy indeed

  • It is ridiculous

    It is true the celebrities work their asses off but doctors work as hard too. From getting emergency calls in the middle of the night to standing in the operating theater for hours and sometimes even more than 12 hours straight without even getting a chance to sit down. Sure, celebrities get little rest most of the time due to hectic schedules but doctors are the same. Sometimes they might not get any rest at all.  Doctors get paid not even half of what celebs make to save lives? It is just ridiculous. Think about it, is entertainment more important than your health and life? Obviously no. Moreover, when there is an epidemic, doctors risks getting infected just to save people. Many doctors have died from treating infected patients too. Many of us take this for granted because we think that it is their job but just like any other person, doctors have families to feed and worry about. Sure celebs can be stressed out from schedules and projects but doctors have it worse. They have to try their very best to make their surgeries a success. Imagine having to break the news to the family of the patient when a surgery fails. They will obviously face an intense amount of stress. So doctors should obviously be paid higher than celebrities

  • Let's put things into perspective.

    Actors entertain (generally), no disrespect to them, it is after all their occupation and of course they also require training and development to deliver a good service. Doctors attend to healthcare needs of patients through diagnosis, treatment, management and review. All this requires years of intense training, lifelong learning and working long-hours under stressful conditions where the slightest error could cost a human life. If you take all this into account, it would be ludicrous to pay actors more than doctors or similar healthcare professionals. Ask yourself, which is more important to you, the sustenance of your life with the aid of doctors knowledge and expertise, or the entertainment from the media industry? On an individual as well as societal level, majority if not all people would agree that healthcare is the priority and an integral service for a civilised and functional community. So it is a sad state of affairs that this moral understanding isn't reflected in the distribution of earnings.

  • Of course not

    It's grossly immoral. If we paid doctors even a 100th the celeb wage we'd have the best motivated health service in the world and the research to find the cure for the most awful pathologies. Sequestering money into 'celeb land' seriously undermines our society's ability to progress. The power of media and entertainment to cure our boredom and tap into our fantasies is immense. Shame on us for buying into this quick fix while bypassing our real need. A human curse ! Of course the celebs are laughing - they can afford the best private health care in the world. Let me remind you why ? They can sing , they look physically pleasing , they can kick a leather sack filled with air ???? Utter madness

  • No they shouldn't !!

    Am a dentist so don't get me wrong that am here because am in a rage mode ...I just saw one celebrity who earns 30,000$ per one episode of his drama and got shocked ...That's a year payment for a training dentist!! I mean a YEAR , Doctors studied day and night and still studying and when you say that celeb can't sleep or they get tired from hard schedules , I think we all know what a doctor on a call mean and what does it mean to make a surgery at 3 Am in a field of few centimeters maybe ..Your neck ,back,feet,eyes,and WHOLE body is tired but still never complain cuz its your job and we LOVE it also, but it just sometimes feels unfair that they should just show up there and have billions while Doctors have much less ..Also if you are talking about good looking ,there are many many doctors that are way more beautiful than Angelina Julie but no one knows about them ..Its just that celebrities happens to show up to u guys and others didn't ! And Talent ?? While doctors get training ?? So actors are not trained now ?? What do u call a little kid on the set from age 5 ? THATS A TRAINING ..

This question is very flawed. Their is no way of answering this question directly. Celebrity is not a job listing. It depends on the job. Should the salary of an actor be higher then the salary of a doctor would be a better way to phrase it. (although most actors don't make anywhere near what doctors make). Some celebrities sell products or services so there wage cannot be compared to anything salary based. Do I believe that doctors should make more then salary based celebrities like athletes and musicians (the ones that are on salary) yes. However, many celebrities can make money off their celebrity which a doctor cannot. Their appearance has value since they attract their fans to businesses and events so celebrities have a leg up on doctors because they will always have a product (their celebrity) that they can sell while doctors must stick to their salary.
