For any actor you should try to get as much as you can, because you're basically freelance. Even if you're in contract for five years or seven years or whatever it is, then you're done. It's the same with sports...I don't see people complaining too much when athletes get these huge salaries. It's the same thing.

There hasn't been a promise or a goodbye like Cooper has to go through with his daughter in this.

Taylor Swift tells Contact Music that she only writes honest music. ''I could make music that's catchy and has not a shred of personal information in it. But that wouldn't feel honest and my fans wouldn't connect to it. It's like these people have been reading my diaries since I was 16. I spend two years making an album, so I mean it to be meaningful and an accurate representation of my life. Artists gain celebrity and lose perspective. They gain fame and they lose a sense of reality or self-awareness. They start to care about some gossip blogger. I refuse to let them dictate the type of work I'm going to do.''
