Why does Elisabeth Shue have a net worth of $12.5 Million? Perhaps these quotes can explain why:
The hard thing about 'The Saint' was that my character was supposed to die, but then they reshot the ending based on tests and she lives. I created the character based on her dying - she would never have been as innocent otherwise. So I didn't have high expectations for that film.Elisabeth Shue
