Mexican movie star Gael Garcia Bernal earned just $6,000 (GBP3,157) for his work on hit indie film Y Tu Mama Tambien.

The actor, who is now worth millions per movie, reveals the Mexican movie industry has never worked with Hollywood-sized budgets.

He says, "In Mexico, movies happen as an act of faith, from people believing in them."
