Hugh Laurie Swallows His Pride for Charity

Is ‘House’ star Hugh Laurie a sell out, or just a really ethical guy? Well, the answer, according to him, is kind of both.

Laurie, who is rumored to be the highest paid actor on television, recently did an interview with the Telegraph on his career. When asked about being offered ridiculous amounts of money to take jobs like becoming the spokesperson for L’Oreal Vita Lift 5, a skincare line, the actor gave his conflicted reasoning.

He said, “They call you up and say, ‘do you want to do this thing?’ I say, ‘no, you’re out of your mind.’ Then they say a sum of money, and it’s huge. I mean, it’s verging on the wicked, really. But: for that money I could build a school in Sierra Leone. Once that thought enters your head, you cannot turn away from it. Because if you do, what you’re really saying is that my pose, the way I present myself, is more important than kids getting an education in Sierra Leone. Who could do that?”

It’s hard to argue with his reasoning. It takes a great deal of wealth and privilege to be able to turn down buckets of money. We’re sure he draws a line somewhere, but it’s nice to know he’s thinking about others.

With his oodles of cash, the British star helps to fund children’s organizations, domestic violence non profits, various health related initiatives and more.
