Don't they have enough money?



Stumbling upon this ad for watches featuring George Clooney pushed me to write this post letting Americans know that plenty of actors and actresses who are famous in the U.S. jump at the chance to be in advertisements on this side of the ocean.

A few notable examples include Antonio Banderas for Marks & Spencer department store, Uma Thurman for some Lancome perfume and Nicole Kidman pushing some kind of brain-boosting video game.

I don't recall big stars like these pedalling products in the U.S. What gives?

Banderas is pimping his own brand of cologne here, but I haven't seen any of the others you mentioned. Maybe it's because so many people here hate so many of those actors for their political views that most companies wouldn't risk alienating 50% of their customers.
