Celebrities are renowned for the free gifts, or “perks,” they have written into their contracts before going on tour or starting work on a new movie. Actress Sandra Bullock, the star of movies such as “Speed” and “Miss Congeniality,” has taken the idea of perks to a new level. According to an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation, one of Ms. Bullock’s requirements is that before she signs up for a motion picture, she will be provided with an on-site wellness center that includes licensed acupuncturists and massage therapists.
“It’s kind of fun just to see what you can get,” Bullock told the BBC. She also admitted that while she tries to get as many benefits as possible from a studio, she makes sure the rest of the crew gets to enjoy the benefits of acupuncture.
“Now actors get such ridiculous perks that you might as well make some of those perks something that benefits everybody,” she said.
