British star Miranda Richardson has blasted Hollywood stars as overpaid and arrogant.

The Harry Potter AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE actress believes "obscene" salaries inflate egos to ridiculous proportions.

She says, "In America the pay (for actors) is obscene. It makes monsters very easily. They sit in a caravan for eights hours, come out for 20 minutes and a limo is provided for their tired limbs."
