Barbie says, "Math is hard!"

Ditzy starlet Jessica Alba may have her heart in the right place, but she can't do math. Although she is reportedly paid $3 million per film, she recently agreed to star in a Weinstein production without pay in return for a $100,000 contribution through an auction for AIDS research. But wouldn't it have been smarter to just star in the film and then donate her salary to charity?

UPDATE: Apparently there is some confusion as to the events which led up to Ms. Alba's offer. From the article:
Alba caused the greatest stir by vowing to star unpaid in one of . . . producer Bob Weinstein's movies, if he agreed to bid $100,000 for tennis lessons with sports stars Monica Seles and Boris Becker.
