The computer hackers who downloaded Sony Pictures movies this week, along with documents listing executives' salaries, also revealed James Franco's and Seth Rogen's salaries for the upcoming comedy "The Interview," along with other details.

Rogen, 32, was paid more than $8.4 million and Franco, 36, $6.5 million, and said Thursday, citing the 210-page document posted online.

The hacked document gives the film's budget as $44 million, and cites apparent cameo appearances by Britney Spears' ex-husband, dancer Kevin Federline, who received $5,000, and by music stars Beyoncé and Jay Z, who were paid $10,000 and granted first-class plane tickets.

"Zooey Deschanel, Michael Vick, Sylvester Stallone, Brad Pitt and Neil Patrick Harris are all listed on the budget, perhaps as extras," Fusion noted.

Among the more interesting expenditures: two tigers, with a vet, trainers and accommodation, for nearly $74,000; and a prop "table of weed, coke, pills" and underwear that came in at $241 -- $9 under budget.
