Cracked posted a list about 5 Awful Things Nobody Tells You about Being an Actor. Thing is it's all about being a film actor.

Now that's the strange one. I recently worked with a voice actress that is well known and done some really well selling games and she was thinking of getting out of it because she wasn't making much money. Also worked a board meeting and the slight shock from the board when told actors make maybe 30,000 a year and that's if they work everyday.
As was said during a 14/48 play, "God made actors so prostitutes feel better about themselves."
