Friday has grown to become a classic comedy film since its release in 1995, and you may be shocked to find out how much Chris Tucker AKA Smokey made from the film.⁣

For an episode of the Shay Shay series, Chris Tucker joined Shannon Sharpe via Zoom as he confesses that he only received $10,000 (£7296) for the role of Smokey.

“We filmed it in 20 days. I got about $10,000 for it or whatever. I didn’t care. I wanted the opportunity.”⁣

As he thinks the film’s entire budget was around $2-3 million, Chris goes into detail about how small Friday was at that time.

As he remembered happy memories from shooting the film, Chris was full of smiles.⁣
