Denzel Washington believes that actors can no longer rely on studios.
The Oscar winning actor believes that the current economic climate that we are living in has had a huge impact on the movies that are being made.
Speaking to Metro the actor said: "Studios are now owned by big corporations, so all the decisions are made in a completely different way.
"The mid-majors, places like Summit, are like what studios used to be.
"The big studios are more interested in their big tent-pole movies and farm out the rest of it and take distribution deals... You can't rely on the studios, you have to know where to go to find it."
None blockbuster movies are being overlooked because they don't take as much money at the box office.
And Washington used his new movie Flight as an example "Bob Zemeckis and I took one-tenth of our usual salary but almost 40% of the back-end - so if it hits, ker-ching. If not, we still made the movie we wanted.
"It's called 'showbusiness'. I don't have a problem with that. Five years ago we might have got $70 million to make it - now they're looking for Mission: Impossible 6 or Twilight 4.
"Studios will take the credit for smaller movies if they get Oscars but I get it, we're in tough economic times."
Washington is back on the big screen this week with his latest movie Safe House, which sees him team up with Ryan Reynolds.
Flight is set to be released later this year.
