Being out of work hits everyone hard, even highly paid actors. Anne Heche has just been given a temporary break from paying her nearly $15,000-a-month child and spousal support to her ex Coley Laffoon. "I am continuing to look for work, but I have no offers pending and the impending strike by the Screen Actors Guild reduces my prospects for work even further," wrote Anne in court papers. "Since January 18, 2008, I have been unemployed and had no income from employment except for one very short-term contract for a movie role for which I received a total of $65,000, approximately the amount I received for one episode of Men in Trees." The judge said Anne didn't have to pay her next support payment, but would have to provide updated income and expense information.
