Kim Kardashian ‘was paid $2million’ for her viral Uber Eats advert with Magda Szubanski
Kim Kardashian debuted in the viral Uber Eats campaign with Kath & Kim character Sharon Strzelecki, played by Magda Szubanski, last month.
And now the Hollywood star’s rumoured appearance fee has been revealed.
According to NW magazine, Kim was paid around $2million (US$1.35million) to wear a netball bib and act confused by Sharon’s pronunciation of ‘noice’.

Magda, 58, said she was initially shocked the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star had agreed to film the advert, which featured a slew of in-jokes about mid-2000s sitcom Kath & Kim.
Australians loved the commercial, with hundreds of fans praising it on Twitter as a ‘masterpiece’ and ‘the greatest Uber advert ever made’.
The $2million figure had previously been suggested by Junkee, which speculated that Kim’s global fame and influence had likely pushed up her price.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Uber Eats and Kim Kardashian’s reps for comment.
Speaking on the Today show last week, Magda said that Kim was confused by the commercial at first, as she had no idea what netball actually was.
‘At first, she thought it was some kind of joke about the Met Ball. And it’s the most anti-fashion ad that you can imagine!’ she said.

However, she later clarified to Fitzy & Wippa that the two women hadn’t actually been in the same room when they filmed the advert earlier this year.
She joked that Sharon’s ‘busy schedule’ was to blame, meaning that Kim, 39, had to film her side of the conversation two days beforehand.
‘They were in the same room, but not at the same time,’ she said.
