50 Celebrities Who Are Worth Millions


Adele is truly a remarkable musician. In an industry where autotune is increasingly becoming the norm, her voice makes waves for its otherworldly vocal strength and range. This is probably why, despite the fact that her last album came out in 2015, she’s still ranked as one of the richest musicians in the United Kingdom.

Adele, for all practical purposes, seems to be away from the limelight for the time being in preparation for her highly-anticipated fourth studio album, which was delayed due to the pandemic. However, she does make exceptions as she recently hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live. Keeping a low profile certainly adds to her allure! She has nothing to worry about as far as her finances are concerned. The gargantuan amount of investment money she’s made from her previous albums are more than enough for someone to retire multiple times over.


Chris Pratt’s net worth isn’t as meteoric as some of his Marvel co-stars, whose individual net worth, at least for more than a few of them, exceed the hundred-million-dollar mark. With a net worth of $60 million, Chris is no slugger, and he’s filthy rich compared to us plebeians. His career’s trajectory is quite remarkable, considering it was only in 2009 when he played the role of Andy Dwyer in the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, a role that was supposed to be temporary but would later become his breakout role.

Much to his credit, he’s a huge star who’s come a long way from his humble beginnings of waiting tables at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company in Maui, Hawaii, where director and actress Rae Dawn Chong discovered him. The actor has enjoyed a successful list of hit movies. So far, Pratt’s highest-grossing film is Avengers: Infinity War, grossing $678,815,482.


Steven Spielberg, the man who could rightly fit in anyone’s list of Best Directors in History, has a career spanning five decades. Some of his films have become so popular that they are now, to one degree or another, fully enmeshed in the cultural zeitgeist. Everyone has heard about Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan, and Indiana Jones, and this is a testament to just how influential the man is to the culture at large. He was even responsible for saving Universal back in the ‘90s when the studio was strapped for cash.

Throughout the movie industry, Spielberg has earned huge success from movies such as E.T. and Jaws. It was Jaws that marked the start of the Hollywood blockbuster movie genre. With a net worth of $7 billion, Spielberg is undoubtedly one of the wealthiest and most influential players in Hollywood and will continue to be so for years to come.


It’s hard to believe that it only took two years for Ed Sheeran to nearly double his total net worth. Now it’s estimated to be in the range of $200 million, which is twice the amount it was in 2018. Many attribute this to Sheeran’s constant touring, and we’re inclined to agree. One tour he did in 2019 reportedly brought in $340 million for the Sheeran team.

Between 2017 and 2019, Ed Sheeran embarked on his highest-grossing tour of all time, ÷ Tour, which earned $775 million. Things are looking great for the young musical prodigy, given the many accomplishments he’s had thus far. In fact, he’ll need a slew of financial advisors soon enough to handle his net worth, which will no doubt be doubling yet again in the years to come and might be well on his way to becoming a billionaire.


Sylvester’s Stallone, who everyone knows for playing the iconic movie characters Rocky and Rambo, is one of Hollywood’s richest people. Not bad for someone who wrote the story of Rocky and was offered $350,000 by the studio to not play the role. Of course, Stallone knew at the time that he was the only one who had the electricity to play the role, so he rejected the offer, stood his ground, and said it’s either he would play Rocky or no one would.

The studio eventually relented, and the Rocky franchise went on to make $1.4 billion at the box office. Stallone grew up “pretty broke” and couldn’t afford any more cash loans. He had no idea about the success that was about to come to him. Playing Rocky Balboa was just the start of Stallone’s successful career in Hollywood. Since his hit movie, Stallone has starred in over 60 different movies such as Demolition Man, The Specialist, Cliffhanger, The Expendables franchise, and Tango and Cash.


British singer and actress Duffy has got a past that would inspire dreamers and aspiring artists with day jobs everywhere. Her singing career began under the name Aimee Duffy in 2004. She juggled two jobs while recording her first self-titled extended play. In 2008, she released her debut album, Rockferry, after signing a recording contract with A&M Records. Little did she know that her album was her ticket to stardom, garnering millions in sales.

She won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album and three Brit Awards a year later. In 2015, she appeared in the thriller Legend and contributed an original song to the film’s soundtrack. She would go on She’s since taken a hiatus from music, but we’re sure her $9-million net worth will even increase as she continues her successful career. We’re looking forward to seeing what kind of investments she’s planning to do with her money now that she’s worth millions.


Drake is always on someone’s Best of the Best list. Whether it’s because he’s one of the most famous, one of the most popular, or, for this article’s purposes, one of the richest, he can typically be found somewhere in the top five. The 34-year-old singer is famous for his lavish spending habits. Besides his $390,000 Grand Vividus mattress, Drake loves to splurge on purchases such as a 50,000 square foot Drake Manor in Toronto and a $1,425 pair of Nike Air Max 97 “Jesus Shoes”, which are filled with holy water from the Jordan River.

It is not at all surprising that he is among the wealthiest celebrities out there, given that he’s not just a hip hop artist. He’s also a very successful businessman, whose investments include his own record label and a label under Nike. He is also the global ambassador for the Toronto Raptors.


Jimmy Kimmel has come a long way from hosting the obscure but controversial The Man Show. He’s now more mainstream than that, hosting the late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! He had a fairly normal childhood in Las Vegas, but it was there that he reportedly got into radio hosting. He shared that, as a radio host, he’d frequently get offers to do television shows, but he turned them down, thinking television was not his thing.

Well, now he’s the host of a late-night talk show and is one of the most recognizable faces on TV—not to mention, he’s also one of the richest people on TV. Jimmy Kimmel’s annual salary reaches the $15 million mark, and just a year ago, his net worth of $35 million increased to a whopping $50 million. In the coming years, there’s no doubt that he’ll increase his total net worth yet again. He’ll be needing a reliable financial advisor to help him with his money.


Kendall Jenner is one woman who needs no introduction, given how ubiquitous her family is in Hollywood. Indeed, even those who don’t care to watch a single episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians know who the Kardashians are. They are a family whose vocabulary don’t include the words bankruptcy or money loans. And while Kendall, with her $45 million net worth, might not be filthy rich by Kardashian standards (she seems to have the smallest net worth in her family), she’s definitely rich by ours. Of course, this is in no small part because of the fat check she regularly receives for being a part of her family’s television show.

Kendall Jenner gives credit to her work as part of the show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and her other gigs as a model and brand spokesperson for the hefty paychecks. In 2018, she earned the title of the highest-paid model in the world for the second year in a row.


If you are like Garth Brooks, a musical artist with seven certified diamond status albums and more than 170 million records sold, then it’s a safe bet to say that mundane matters like mortgages or cash loans are the furthest thing from your mind. Well, Garth is not just a successful country music artist; he is also known as the quintessential country music performer.

He’s one of the few country music artists who’ve defined the genre with his unique sound and mixture of pop and rock elements. Therefore, it’s par for the course that the man gets to sleep like a baby at night knowing he can buy pretty much anything he likes. After all, with a net worth of $400 million, he’s got enough money to last him several lifetimes. Luckily, Garth knows how to pay it forward. In 1999, he established the Teammates for Kids Foundation.


Lauren Lake is one feisty lady who wears more than a few hats. Are you ready? She’s a lawyer, fashion designer, singer, motivational speaker, real estate mogul, and lastly, a talk show host. She’s best known for being the host of the television courtroom series Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court and the author of the somewhat popular book Girl! Let Me Tell You… Judge Lauren is a highly sought-after lecturer and speaker.

She has been seen giving out keynote addresses for countless civic, social, legal, student, and business organizations across the country. In any case, she’s not exactly a high-profile celebrity, but she’s found success on television as a host and as a guest on other popular television shows like Dr. Phil and Regis & Kelly, which explains her enviable estimated net worth of $1.5 million. It’s certainly not as high as others on this list, but nevertheless, it’s a testament to her success and to her capabilities.


Despite that Selena is still young at 28 years old, people unfamiliar with her will be surprised to know that she’s already a veteran in Hollywood, with a successful career that spans close to two decades. That’s how old she is in the business. And it’s no surprise, either, that she’s now worth approximately $75 million, considering she’s been working since she was nine years old. She must have made some strategic investments!

She is one of the most successful stars that came out of the Disney Channel, to be sure, which is the place many young performers see as a stepping stone to bigger things in Hollywood. After establishing herself as one of the rising stars in Disney, Gomez turned her attention to music. She consistently churned out chart-topping albums from 2009 to 2015, and with world tours in between. She doesn’t only earn money through her music, however. She has also taken on a number of projects through the years, from producing to associating with major fashion brands such as Coach.


We’re not sure if this couple qualifies as celebrities, but to some degree they must, because they found one of the largest apparel retailers in the world, Forever 21, which reportedly has around 470 different stores in 57 different countries. They first opened the chain in 1984 with a 900-square-foot store in Los Angeles and managed to hit $700,000 in revenue in the first year, prompting them to launch a new store every six months. Their revenue peaked in 2015 at an estimated value of $4.4 billion.

However, the couple filed for bankruptcy in 2019 because of a massive sales slowdown, but of course, they had already amassed a huge fortune by then. And there’s a lot to be inspired from the story of this couple because they immigrated to the US from South Korea with nothing but a high school diploma, and yet they were still able to create a billion-dollar empire with a not-so-good credit report and just a mere $11,000 in savings.


Chance the Rapper is an American hip-hop artist who’s noted for his inimitable style. He entered the industry at a young age, amassing a strong following since. His success has only skyrocketed since he stepped into the music industry. He has also collaborated with several huge names in the music industry, effectively galvanizing his position as one of the artists to look out for.

Indeed, the man’s rise to stardom has been, how shall we say, unorthodox. He didn’t attach himself to any producer and hasn’t sold an album or single. Instead, he chose to release his music for free through DatPiff. He explained that he never wanted to sell his music because he thought that putting a price on it limits it and inhibits him from ever making a connection. We’re happy to report that the investments he’s made in this unorthodox method of making money have worked out for him.


Ben Affleck is easily one of the biggest and most recognizable names in Hollywood. Affleck got his big break when he starred in the film Good Will Hunting in 1997, which he co-wrote with fellow actor and best friend Matt Damon. He’s also well-known for his appearances in various films such as Armageddon, The Town, Argo, Gone Girl, Boiler Room, and Pearl Harbor.

The man has been in so many films that it’s hard to determine which in particular is worth mentioning. He’s played a high school bully, the best friend of a genius, a Wall Street lawyer, a mobster, a bank robber, and best of all, the Dark Knight. It’s completely unsurprising that he’s been able to amass a fortune of $150 million. Affleck also co-owns the production company Pearl Street Films and co-founded the nonprofit organization Eastern Congo Initiative.


Mark Zuckerberg, whose eventual founding of Facebook was immortalized in the film The Social Network (a film, we should add, he took a lot of issue with), is one person that needs no introduction. Indeed, if one hadn’t been living in a cave for the past decade or so, then one would be familiar with the tech billionaire. Of course, it was the creation of Facebook that precipitated Zuckerberg amassing a $105-billion net worth.

He developed the social networking website just from his college dorm room at Harvard University and eventually left college to focus on the site during his sophomore year. One thing people might be interested to know is that Zuckerberg, as the CEO of Facebook, only gives himself an annual salary of $1. Of course, he’s still a billionaire, so it’s not like he’ll be facing bankruptcy or have any credit card debt anytime soon with that paltry amount.


Tech innovator and billionaire Elon Musk is known for many things, including the many polarizing positions he broadcasts on Twitter. Indeed, the man can be cantankerous on social media, but he arguably makes a good case for his positions for the most part. As many will know, Elon founded SpaceX and Tesla, two companies that are at the forefront of technology and innovation.

Musk’s two companies have made more than a few investments that are seen to be helpful to the environment in the long run. With that in mind, we’re counting Elon as an overall good for the world’s well-being. In 2020, Musk has added $140 billion to his net worth, making his previous net worth jump from $27 billion to a whopping $170 billion. That was good enough to boost him dozens of spots up in the billionaire ranks, as he surged past Bill Gates to claim second place in November.


Not only is Tom Cruise one of the best actors of all time, but he is apparently also, to his credit, one of the richest. With an estimated net worth of $600 million, it really isn’t something that many people can reasonably doubt as he has quite a long list of investments to his name. Also, given the many projects he’s involved with, his net worth can only go up in the foreseeable future.

Not bad for someone who fortuitously went into acting because of an injury. That’s right, Cruise reportedly got injured in high school and joined the drama club after getting forced off the wrestling team. Luckily for Tom, that incident put him on the path to stardom and wealth. After getting bitten by the acting bug in high school, he immediately relocated to New York to focus on his craft full-time. It wasn’t long before he was cast in the film Risky Business in 1983, an iconic role that boosted his career into stardom overnight and earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy.


This Oklahoma-born American country music singer, who many will know as one of the judges on the hit television talent show The Voice, is said to be one of the most charismatic people in the music industry. Blake Shelton has won an overwhelming number of awards throughout his entire career, starting with his now-Platinum-certified debut album and the ten succeeding albums that followed.

Whatever the case may be, we’re not surprised that someone as talented and as hard-working as Shelton has a net worth of $100 million. He reportedly also owns several investments around the country, including a ridiculously huge ranch in Oklahoma and a collection of luxury cars. He is also the owner of a chain of restaurants and entertainment complexes called Ole Red scattered in various locations throughout the United States. Blake is engaged to fellow The Voice judge Gwen Stefani.


Matt Damon, who is widely regarded as one of the most bankable individuals in Hollywood, got his big break when he and fellow actor Ben Affleck wrote, directed, and starred in the hit film Good Will Hunting. It was a film that was widely praised among critics, putting the two on the map and turning them into A-listers a few years later.

Indeed, for Matt and Ben, the film Good Will Hunting was perhaps one of the best investments they made, considering that they owe most of their success to the film. Matt Damon has starred in many films since then, a lot of which turned out to be successful, so it’s unsurprising that he’s been able to amass a fortune through the years. Throughout his career, Damon has accumulated a total net worth of $170 million from his entire body of work. He earns an estimated amount of $10 million for each film.


American business executive and philanthropist Meg Whitman has had the opportunity to work for so many high-profile companies in the past, including eBay, The Walt Disney Company, Hewlett-Packard, and Hasbro. During her reign as the CEO of eBay, the company grew to an estimated 15,000 employees and $8 billion in annual revenue. In November 2007, Whitman resigned as the CEO of eBay but remained on the board and served as an advisor to the new CEO, John Donahoe, until late 2008.

She was then inducted in 2008 into the US Business Hall of Fame. Indeed, she’s been christened by Forbes as the fourth richest self-made woman in the United States. It is of no surprise then that she was able to amass so much money throughout the course of her career. Whitman is also reportedly always on the look-out for good investments, as evidenced by her decision to invest in LA-based e-sports company Immortals LLC last 2018.


Adam Levine is, of course, known as the frontman of Maroon 5—a band that, to their credit, has consistently produced hit after hit ever since arriving at the music scene in 2004. When the band released their debut album, Maroon 5 had sold more than 30 million copies of their album worldwide, 10 million of which was made in the United States alone. Levine reportedly has a net worth of $90 million, but many will be surprised to know that a good amount of his money is because of his involvement with things other than Maroon 5.

Indeed, Levine reportedly makes $13 million per season as a judge for the singing competition show, The Voice. He is also reportedly a realtor of sorts, having bought and sold a few mansions in recent years. In 2018 alone, Levine has managed to sell one of his mansions to fellow singer John Mayer for $13. 5 million and bought a $35.3 million mansion from Max Mutchnick.


Barbara Streisand, a veteran personality in Hollywood, is a singer, songwriter, and actress who has won a slew of awards for both acting and singing through the course of her career. Streisand first worked as a singer in her teenage years. In 1960, she moved to New York and performed in various well-known nightclubs like Blue Angel and Bon Soir. A year after that, she made her debut on TV in The Tonight Show.

Her net worth of $400 million is no surprise because her concerts alone have grossed hundreds of millions of dollars, and many of the real estate investments she’s made have also reportedly doubled in value, increasing her net worth even further. Indeed, many might be surprised to know that a huge part of Streisand’s net worth is not because of her singing and acting work but because of the many real estate investments she’s made through her career.


Canadian singer and songwriter Justin Bieber is, to a huge degree, often included in lists like this because of his over-the-top lifestyle, which is often on full display over social media. The young man is one of the richest people in the American music industry who are under 30. And it’s been quite a ride for Bieber, considering he was discovered on YouTube at the age of 13 years old when her mother decided to upload videos of him singing on the social streaming platform.

Eventually, this enabled him to pick up motion on the platform. In the following years, Bieber caught Scooter Braun’s attention when he unintentionally clicked on Bieber’s video. After finding him and gaining his mother’s blessing, Bieber then started recording in Georgia. That was a relatively long time ago, but his rise to the top was nothing short of remarkable. Based on his music, touring, investments, endorsements, and the documentaries he’s been involved with, Bieber is undoubtedly a money-making machine.


Kim Kardashian is one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. Even if one didn’t watch a single episode of her hit reality series Keeping up with the Kardashians, it’s safe to say they’ll be familiar with both the Kardashian name and brand. Although she’s not the richest Kardashian (a distinction that goes to her half-sister Kylie, who’s created a cosmetics empire), Kim is arguably the one who started it all.

Even though Kim doesn’t have a finance degree, she’s happily bringing in money from not just her show, but from endorsement deals, her clothing line, her perfume, and a host of other ventures, each of which is raking in millions a year. A bulk of her wealth is reportedly credited to her KKW Beauty line, which produces everything from lipstick and body makeup to foundation and fragrances. Even though the beauty giant Coty owns a 20% stake in the company, Kim is still the majority owner of KKW Beauty.


J.K. Rowling, who created the Harry Potter universe, is someone who’s got a very interesting past. She was reportedly both penniless and unqualified for a loan while writing the future best-selling book series that eventually made her a billionaire. What’s also interesting is that she reportedly peddled her manuscript for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to a number of publishers—12 in total—only for them to reject it.

One publisher took a chance, only because the 8-year-old daughter of the chairman read the chapter up for review and demanded to have the next. Since the series started back in 1997, over 500 million copies of her book have been sold worldwide. Indeed, J.K. Rowling is an endless vault of stories, that it’s not surprising that her fortune is similar. The beloved Harry Potter author did her best to keep the details of his vast wealth a secret, but it is estimated that she is worth $1.2 billion.


National Football League fans certainly know Tom Brady’s story inside and out, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback is quite the moneyed individual. He’s got a net worth of $180 million and is also married to supermodel Gisele Bündchen, who herself has a net worth of $400 million. Such mundane matters like mortgages and loans are the farthest from their minds because it looks like they both have enough money to retire a hundred times over.

Brady has been signed to the NFL for close to 20 years now and has been ranked as one of the best quarterbacks in the league, if not the best, so it’s no surprise that he was able to amass such a colossal amount of money. In 2020, Brady left the New England Patriots to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This contract alone earned him $50 million and an additional $4.5 million for annual incentives.


Given that Mariah Carey has been, to her credit, able to sell more than 200 million records throughout her career, it’s no surprise that the woman with the golden voice has a net worth of $300 million. Indeed, her record sales alone make her one of the best-selling artists in the history of music. She was even ranked as the second best-selling female artist of all time, second only to the inimitable Madonna.

Interestingly enough, Mariah’s oh-so-ubiquitous Christmas song All I Want for Christmas is one of only a few songs in the history of music that was able to go quintuple platinum. From the late 2000s until today, Mariah Carey has made large amounts of money from her performances in residencies. A combination of her residencies, tours, acting roles, and albums has given her a current estimated net worth of $300 million. The diva has also made some money in her appearances in various TV shows and also from her merchandise.


Imagine how rich a woman must be for her husband to be happily taking salary cuts. Well, Gisele Bündchen, to her credit, doesn’t have to imagine it—because she’s living it. Indeed, Gisele Bündchen reportedly earns so much that her husband Tom Brady admitted during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel that it’s the reason why he’s not keen on asking for a higher salary from the NFL.

The supermodel worked hard to get to where she is, appearing in countless magazines as the face of high-profile fashion brands like Chanel, H&M, David Yurman, Carolina Herrera, and more. According to Forbes, the Brazilian supermodel pocketed a staggering amount of $47 million, and it is all thanks to her lucrative contracts with various fashion brands. In addition to her endorsements, Bündchen has also raked in some big bucks through her deals with companies that want to monetize her name.


Rihanna, the Barbadian singer who took the world by storm in the mid-2000s for her chart-topping hits, has a net worth of $600 million. She is known to be worth more than Beyonce, Madonna, and Celine Dion. Just knowing this, you already know how successful she has been in her career. If one tracked Rihanna’s net worth from a few years back, one would notice that a pattern exists— and the pattern, quite simply, shows that her net worth is on an upward streak, increasing, rather galactically, year-after-year.

Of course, anyone who’s followed the Barbadian bombshell’s electricity-laden career won’t be surprised, given the many hits she’s produced and the many tours that she’s been involved with. We are sure she had a lot of help from her financial aids in managing her money as she has been recently revealed as the richest female musician on Earth.


Meghan Markle gained worldwide attention when she played Rachel Zane in the legal drama series Suits, but it’s safe to say that she is now, to a huge degree, more popularly known as Prince Harry’s wife. In spite of her highly-publicized affairs as a royal, no one aside from Markle and her accountant know the exact amount of her net worth.

Wealth tracking sites estimate Markle’s net worth to be in the range of $5 million, which is a lot less than her husband Harry’s net worth of $40 million but is still quite a lot for our normal plebeian standards. She made that much money by herself, even years before she met Prince Harry. In any case, Meghan and Harry are reportedly trying to be financially independent of the Royal family and giving up the financial support from the Prince Charles’ estate and the Sovereign Grant. Although, we think they won’t be finding it all that difficult, given their considerably high profiles and connections.


Jennifer Aniston, who became a household name for playing Rachel Green in the popular television sitcom Friends, ranks among the richest actresses in Hollywood. Even if Friends ended 16 years ago, the show’s popularity hasn’t declined at all. Aniston hasn’t been seen in a hit movie for quite some time now, though, she was able to successfully transition to the big screen after her television career and was even able to build enough star power to command a huge talent fee and become one of the most sought-after movie stars.

She makes much of her money through her endorsement deals, and a significant part of Aniston’s net worth is also because of the investments she made in her own production company, which has produced shows for both TV and film. Reports estimate that Aniston earns a profit of $2 million in a year from Friends syndication deals and $10 million each year from sponsorship deals.


Named International Model of the Year by the British Fashion Council, Gigi Hadid is no stranger to living in the lap of luxury. Being one of the most famous faces and in-demand supermodels on Earth, Gigi has earned millions of dollars in her own right together with his famous boyfriend, Zayn Malik. She and her sister share incredibly wealthy parents. Her father, Mohamed Hadid, is somewhat of a socialite, famous for being a real estate developer for the ultra-rich.

Gigi started modeling when she was practically an infant; at two years old, she was discovered by Paul Marciano, the designer for Guess, who made her the face of Baby Guess. Now, and much to her credit, she’s one of the world’s top models and is frequently seen hanging out with fellow socialites, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. In 2017, Gigi Hadid was placed 5th as the highest-paid model on Forbes’ list.


Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, the Australian-American actress Nicole Kidman, who at some point in her past won the distinction of being part of Time Magazine’s Most Influential list, is also ranked as one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. With her arm-length filmography, it’s no surprise that Kidman is one of the richest actresses in the industry today.

Kidman dropped out of school at the age of 16 to pursue an acting career. Thankfully, it proved to be one of the best investments she’s made in herself because she eventually became one of the most recognized and sought-after faces of Hollywood. Nicole Kidman earned a career-high amounting to $17.5 million in the 2005 film, Bewitched. Between 2008 and 1990 alone, she earned a little over $180 million from her movie salaries and earned a colossal amount of $350 million from her acting roles.


Reese Witherspoon, another actress who got the distinction of being included in Time Magazine’s Most Influential list, is a popular Hollywood sweetheart. One of the most memorable roles that Witherspoon took on was that of Elle Woods in the film Legally Blonde. Apart from appearing on-screen, Witherspoon is also a businesswoman. She put in some investment money towards creating Hello Sunshine, a production company that was involved in the production of the films Gone Girl and Wild, both of which came out in 2014.

Witherspoon also started Draper James, her clothing line, which now has outlets in five cities. Even though Witherspoon was earning a lot from her films like Legally Blonde 2 and Sweet Home Alabama, it was producing that gave her the big bucks. She earned $1 million each episode for season two of Big Little Lies and $1.25 million each episode for Apple TV’s The Morning Show.


Portuguese football player Cristiano Ronaldo, who is widely regarded as the best football player in the world at the moment, is reportedly worth $450 million— and it’s not hard to imagine why. As one of the biggest names in football—or, actually, in sports in general—Ronaldo is also expectedly a huge magnet for endorsement deals. From sportswear to food products, to even steel companies and automotive manufacturers, Ronaldo has endorsed them all.

He’s also made various investments throughout his career, including a clothing company and a hotel chain. The man is a money-making machine, and it’s only a matter of time before his net worth breaks into the billion-dollar mark. Indeed, Ronaldo has come a long way from living in a small tin-roofed home in Madeira, Portugal, where he grew up. Now, he has a lifetime contract with Nike Inc. that is estimated to be worth $1 billion. It is a testament to how great Ronaldo is as an athlete since only LeBron James and Michael Jordan have this contract with Nike Inc.


Drew Barrymore, an actress, producer, and author, was catapulted to stardom after the success of the film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, where she played Gertie, the five-year-old who became best friends with an alien from another planet. She’s starred in numerous films since then, even appearing as one of the three Charlie’s Angels in the film-reboot of the same name.

The talented actress put in some investment money towards creating her own production company in 1995 together with Nancy Juvonen called the Flower Films. It’s been involved with quite a few notable films since then, such as 50 First Dates, How to be Single, Donnie Darko, Never Been Kissed, and more. In 2014, Drew Barrymore expanded her business portfolio to include a line of wines. After she achieved success in Flower Wines, she again launched a range of cosmetics called Flower. Drew is now reported to be worth $125 million in 2020.


Dave Chappelle is undoubtedly a talented man, and he has excelled in many fields in the industry. He has worked as an actor, writer, producer, and comedian. Ask the most popular stand-up comedians in Hollywood today to come up with a list of the best stand-up comedians, and you’re likely to get the name Dave Chappelle in the shortlist. This isn’t merely a thought experiment, and it’s been done more than once, producing the results we’ve just described. Saying Dave would be in the shortlist isn’t even fair, because to his credit, he mostly turns up somewhere in the top 5, and frequently even at top 1.

It’s no surprise that, despite turning down a $54-million offer to produce another season of Chappelle’s Show, Mr. Chappelle still has a net worth of $50 million. While most people may think of comedians such as Jay Leno or Jerry Seinfield when it comes to high profile comedians. Dave Chappelle has had a long career in becoming a high-earning and well-respected comedian and eventually turned into a magnet for money-making.


Imagine how rich someone must be to be able to blow away $35 billion of investment money on separation only to remain the richest person in the world. Indeed, the $35 billion that Bezos lost to his wife Mackenzie after their split-up made the latter the third richest woman in the world. If that doesn’t blow your mind, then I don’t know what will. Of course, Jeff Bezos needs no introduction; we’ve all used Amazon at some point in our lives—most of us still do, and will continue to do so for years to come.

Some of us may have a hard time perceiving how much is a billion dollars since not everyone has achieved such money. A billion dollars is a thousand million. To put it in perspective, Jeff Bezos has 187 thousand million dollars. We don’t think Jeff Bezos can ever spend all of that money in several lifetimes.


Juan Luis Londoño Arias, who’s more known by his handle Maluma, is a Colombian singer and songwriter who began his career at the tender age of 16. Maluma released his first album in 2012 entitled Magia with Sony Music Columbia. Although, the starry-eyed artist wouldn’t see fame until a few years later, with the release of his album, Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy, which went to number one in the U.S. Latin chart and hit the second spot in Spain and Mexico.

It gave him the opportunity to work with other big artists. Wealth tracking sites have estimated his net worth to be around $12 million, but this is a credit score that will surely increase over time since the man is getting more popular by the week. The best thing about being a well-known artist throughout the world is that it pays well. In Maluma’s case, he is now worth $12 million.


Marc Jacobs, who became world-famous for his role as the creative director of high-profile fashion brand Louis Vuitton, is reportedly worth $100 million. Of course, we are not surprised, and neither should you because the man was said to have single-handedly created LV’s ready-to-wear clothing line, which proved to be a boon to the company at the time. Jacob’s net worth started to reach the top in the late 1980s when he received an award as Net Fashion Talent.

The millionaire had been passionate about fashion since his childhood. At the age of 15, he worked as a stock boy in an avant-garde clothing boutique in New York City. A little later, the talented Jacob attended High School of Art and Design and Parsons School of Design. Fortunately, Jacobs was hired at a time when he and his business partner were nearing bankruptcy. His talents were spotted quickly, and the rest, as they say, is history.


Kylie Kristen Jenner is a famous media personality, socialite, model, and businesswoman. The founder and owner of cosmetic company Kylie Cosmetics.  Time magazine listed Kylie, along with her sister Kendall, on their list of the most influential teens in the world, given their magnanimous social media presence on various teenage-populated platforms, the most notable of which is Instagram.

Kylie Jenner, who has been given the distinction of being the world’s youngest self-made billionaire from Forbes, is reportedly worth $1 billion, making her the wealthiest Kardashian. That’s really saying something, considering there’s probably no Kardashian who isn’t mind-blowingly rich. Kylie also doesn’t have any qualms about showing off her wealth on her social media accounts; she once bought her daughter a baby stroller worth $12,500. What made her so rich, you ask? Well, she’s put a lot of investment money towards the creation of her own cosmetics line. Needless to say, it paid off.


Blogger, author, and television personality Ree Drummond, also popularly known as “The Pioneer Woman,” is reportedly worth $50 million. Perhaps nobody expected that a simple blog could bring in so much fame and fortune, but that’s what happened to Drummond, whose website went on to win numerous awards and accolades.

Ree Drummond started blogging in 2006. In her site called ‘The Pioneer Woman,’ she writes about content such as homeschooling and life on a ranch. Her blog has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and BusinessWeek. Not to mention, she also launched TastyKitchen.com, which is a free online community website. She used the fame she built from her blog to launch recipe sites and best-selling books, some of which ranked in the New York Times Bestsellers List. That’s not all— Drummond has also managed to acquire a considerable investment portfolio that includes real estate, restaurants, and a hotel.


Jimmy Fallon, an American comedian, actor, and host who used to be a cast member of the comedy skit show Saturday Night Live is now the current host of The Tonight Show, after replacing Jay Leno in 2014. The actor started to pursue his career in the movie industry in 2004. He was offered many significant roles but turned down due to time conflict and doesn’t seem interested in the script.

Interestingly enough, the people around Fallon knew he was, to a huge degree, destined to be a great comedy star because he could make perfect impressions of celebrities even at a young age. It’s been reported that his salary as the host of The Tonight Show alone is around $15 million a year, and since he’s young and still has quite a long way to go, his net worth will be increasing even further in the years to come.


Emily Jean “Emma” Stone was born in Scottsdale, Arizona. She is of Swedish, German, and British descent. Emma began acting as a member of the Valley Youth Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, when she was a child. She appeared in many more productions through her early teens until, at the age of fifteen, she decided to make acting her career.

Emma, who was, to her credit, included in Time Magazine’s List of Most Influential People in the World, became a household name after her portrayal of Gwen Stacy in the film series, The Amazing Spider-Man. Of course, she’s been involved with quite a lot of blockbuster movies before then, but the Spider-Man films were so mainstream that they made Emma more widely recognized than she used to be. She’s graduated from starring in quirky comedies to starring in more serious roles, and given her stellar acting performances, we’re expecting a barrage of new films slated for her to star in.


Kourtney Kardashian, the eldest and arguably the least prominent of the Kardashian brood (if such a thing were even possible), is reportedly worth $35 million. It’s not as high as some of her more moneyed siblings, to be sure, but it’s meteoric by usual celebrity standards nonetheless. Kourtney and her family start appearing in the reality television series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

She worked hard and passionately to achieve her unimaginable net worth through reality shows, and she is the executive producer on the shows. Much of her net worth is from her various endorsement deals and the salary she gets as part of the hit reality series with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner household. She has also reportedly been able to collect millions from the many investments she’s made with her famous sisters throughout the years. The mom of three’s latest business venture is a health and wellness brand, which she’s very passionate about.


Ralph Lauren is an American designer, fashion mogul, and philanthropist. His net worth is $8.2 billion— that is almost two billion dollars more than what he was worth just a year ago if the various wealth tracking sites we’ve perused are any indication. Overall, this makes him the 102nd richest person in America. He is the chief creative officer and executive chairman of the global multibillion-dollar enterprise globally known as Ralph Lauren Corporation.

It is no surprise that he’s worth a lot since he’s the founder of the galactically huge American fashion company Ralph Lauren, which changed the landscape of men’s fashion during its time. As such, the man owns hundreds of boutique shops all over the world and has a vast investment portfolio that includes mansions, yachts, shares of stock, and more! This style trailblazer seems nowhere near done with all the hustle, as he continues to be active in the fashion scene.


Daniel Radcliffe, who everyone knows as Harry Potter from the Harry Potter film franchise, is reportedly worth $100 million. Radcliffe has, of course, starred in many movies since his Harry Potter days, but Harry Potter is, without a doubt, what the man will always be known for— at least for our generation. Indeed, Radcliffe ranked as the highest-paid actor during his Harry Potter days, which was impressive when he started playing the role when he was 11 years old.

The British actor has earned 6 million pounds portraying the Chosen One alone. He was listed as the second richest teenager in Britain behind  Prince Harry’s 14 million pounds in 2004. In any case, he’s now a full-fledged adult who is living out his 30s and is, much to his credit, taking on more adult roles, so we’re sure we’ll be seeing more of him in the years to come in the movie industry.

You’ve Reached The End
