We all have probably seen the classic movie “Friday” about a million times, and one would think that with a movie this big the actors walked away with a huge check! Well, John Witherspoon, who played Pops in the film, says that’s not the case.

John sat down with VladTV for an exclusive interview and spilled some tea y’all! He said he only walked away with $5k for the first film, and said Chris Tucker didn’t make that much either.

John said Chris probably didn’t return to Friday because he was making big bucks doing movies with Jackie Chan.

On the bright side, John made $400k for the second #Friday film.
