If there’s one thing most people would never say no to, it’s the opportunity to make some really good money. It seems some Hollywood stars, however, can afford to turn down heaps of cash all in the name of their personal preferences.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, rapper and actor Ice Cube is one of those stars. The publication reports how he said no to the opportunity to star in Oh Hell No alongside Jack Black because he would be required to get a Covid-19 vaccination.

The movie is set to be shot in Hawaii and was allegedly going to make Ice Cube $9 million (over R144 million) richer – not that this bothers him, by the looks f things.

TMZ reports that the actor does however seem to be taking the COVID pandemic seriously. He has played a role in getting face masks and other essentials to those who need them.

He also reportedly raised money for frontline healthcare workers at the beginning of the pandemic.
