The whole point of someone being a "sell out" is when one compromises their values and gives into something they have stood against in the past. Did Anthony Hopkins ever say "I only do films for the art of it?" Hell no, the man is one of the more honest when it comes to his willingness to take a job for cash. And when did Ian McKellen ever say he would only do artistic fare? Was it around the time he did THE SHADOW?
At some point, earning a living and selling out became interchangable, and thus the phrase "sell out" has long since lost its value, at least as far as the arts are concerned.
