A starring role on a hit television series was not always a guarantee of riches, which is something Sally Field knows all too well.
The Oscar-winning actress stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (weeknights, 12 a.m. ET on ABC) Tuesday night to promote "The Amazing Spider-Man," but she couldn't resist having a dig at Kimmel's home network, ABC.
Field revealed that when she was starring in "Gidget," she sometimes made less money than the extras. "I made $500 an episode," she told Kimmel.
She added, "There were lots of times when the extras -- they worked a lot because we had a lot of big beach scenes -- they made more than I did."
"The Amazing Spider-Man" is in movie theaters Friday, July 3rd. Check Moviefone for local listings. "Jimmy Kimmel Live!” airs weeknights at 12 a.m. ET on ABC.
