Hollywood celebs – stunning, talented, and of course, mega-wealthy. After all, being a big movie star also comes with a big bank account – and obviously, a financial advisor to help handle all that moolah. Ok, I mean you know they’re rich, but exactly how much are all of your fave celebrities worth? You’re about to find out!
Lindsay Lohan – $500k
Oh, LiLo… we fell in love with her during The Parent Trap, and no matter what drama she gets into, she’ll always hold a special place in our hearts. From Mean Girls to Freaky Friday to Georgia Rule, what movie hasn’t Lindsay been in? She’s truly a talented actress, and we have to say, we think she’s pretty grool (cool + great, duh).
Pamela Anderson – $5m
Most commonly known for her role on Baywatch, Pamela has accomplished a lot since running on a beach in her bathing suit. Actually, she’s not just an actress anymore – she’s actually a philanthropist and activist too. She’s famous for her work for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), using her starpower to help save the earth’s creatures. Talented, and a big heart too!
Amanda Bynes – $5m
Teen queen Amanda Bynes was All That back in the day. Who could forget her hilarious different characters and recurring skits on The Amanda Show, which she truly carried alone through her amazing comedic talent. She then soared through chick flicks like What a Girl Wants and She’s the Man, and even showed off her singing skillz in Hairspray. Please come back to our TV screens, Amanda!
Milo Ventimiglia – $5m
Ever since his first appearance on the Hollywood scene, Milo’s star has just been growing and growing. He’s well-known for his recent lead role on This Is Us, but we’ll always see him as mysterious and beautiful Jess Mariano on Gilmore Girls. Rory didn’t end up with Jess in the end, but we sure would love to end up with Milo.
Dog the Bounty Hunter – $6m
With a name like Dog, you can bet that he is hunting something. Well, on Dog the Bounty Hunter, Dog hunts wanted fugitives – which he actually learned to do in prison. Before he became a bounty hunter, he served 18 months in jail and learned the art of the bounty hunting game.
Alexis Bledel – $8m
Rory didn’t end up with Jess, but she did go out on her own to explore and take on the world. After getting her start on Gilmore Girls, Alexis Bledel appeared in movies like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Tuck Everlasting, and Post Grad. If you miss Rory just as much as we do, don’t worry – you can turn on any of these movies and see Alexis’ piercing blue eyes on your screen again.
Amber Heard – $9m
Besides her previous marriage to Johnny Depp, Amber Heard is best known for her stunning looks and acting talents. She made her debut in the movie Friday Night Lights, and continued on to have roles in movies like Never Back Down, Pineapple Express, and 3 Days to Kill. Hopefully we’ll see more of her on our screens soon.
Madonna – $800m
How long has Madonna been the queen of pop? We’re pretty sure the answer is forever – no, seriously, we don’t remember a time when Madonna wasn’t our queen. And with a title like that, it’s no wonder that she’s amassed quite the fortune. We think $800 million is quite worthy of Queen Madonna.
Mandy Moore – $10m
Amanda number two – but this one is better known as Mandy. Mandy Moore is best known for her angelic singing voice, but quickly transitioned into acting as well. She’s famous for starring roles in The Princess Diaries, A Walk to Remember, and Because I Said So. Recently, she’s made another move – from movies to TV. She’s a part of the new hit show This Is Us on NBC.
Lea Michele – $10m
Lea took Hollywood by a storm when she made her TV debut as Rachel on Glee. She’s a triple threat, but if you know her career history, you already knew that. She scored a role in Les Miserables on Broadway when she was only 8 years old! With singing, acting, dancing, and capturing the hearts of America already under her belt, where can Lea Michele go but up?
Chloe Grace Moretz – $12m
Chloe got the acting bug at age 7, and she hasn’t let go since. Now, at a mere 19, Chloe has an impressively long list of film credentials, including (500) Days of Summer, Carrie, and If I Stay. Now, she’s retired from acting for the moment to pursue modeling. We’re pretty sure there’s nothing Chloe can’t do!
Ronda Rousey – $12m
Ronda Rousey isn’t known for her acting skills – who needs that when she has literal chops to show off! And she sets records, too. She was the first American woman to win a judo medal in the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics, and even has a judo move named after her! We won’t attempt to steal it – after all, we would most definitely not want to get in a fight with Ronda.
Gigi Hadid – $13m
Along with her siblings, Gigi Hadid has taken the modeling world by a storm. She came out of nowhere to model for brands such as Marc Jacobs, Balmain, Versace, Chanel… do we really need to keep going? Gigi has even earned the coveted honor of becoming a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Besides her modeling career, Gigi is also the famous best friend of fellow model of Kardashian fame, Kendall Jenner.
J.K. Rowling – $1bn
After publishing Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling went from zero to hero. Before becoming a published author, Rowling was majorly struggling financially, even resorting to writing part of the first book in the series on a cafe napkin. She sure could have used a financial advisor! But no more. She’s certainly come a long way since then – now she’s even a billionaire!
Lauren Graham- $15m
What list is complete without both Rory and Lorelai?! Like mother, like daughter – after Gilmore Girls, Lauren Graham went on to star in movies such as Sweet November, Bad Santa, and Because I Said So. She’s obviously best-known for her hilarious and relatable performance as Lorelai, but a close second would be her second portrayal of a mother on Parenthood. We want her back on our screens soon please!
Amy Schumer – $16m
Amy Schumer is known for two things: her hilarious acting chops, and her total no filter honesty. Well, now that we think about it, the two go together pretty darn well. She drew in huge crowds with hit film Trainwreck, and is now even a published author – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo is just as funny as any of her on-screen hits.
Paul McCartney – $1.2bn
Okay, we know you know who Paul McCartney is. But if you somehow don’t (who are you???), his musical talents are world-renowned – as are those of a little band he was once a part of called The Beatles. Throughout his life, Paul has released an insane number of songs, and just can’t seem to stop writing. Luckily for us, in 2016, Paul released all of his music as one collection so we can just listen on repeat.
Andrew Lloyd Webber – $1.2bn
Andrew Lloyd Webber is pretty much the biggest composer ever. He created the music for famous shows like Cats, Phantom of the Opera, and just so many more. He’s one of few people in the world to have won an Oscar, a Grammy, and a Golden Globe. Seriously, could this guy be more talented? He has clearly earned his $1.2 billion – and didn’t need a financial advisor to do so.
Rebel Wilson – $16m
Rebel Wilson hit the ground running with her breakout role in Bridesmaids, and immediately earned herself a huge fan-following. She continued to star in hit movies, making our abs hurt from laughing so hard at her performances in movies like What To Expect When You’re Expecting, Pitch Perfect, and How To Be Single. Keeping going Rebel, we can’t wait to pee our pants with laughter at your next role.
Liam Hemsworth – $16m
The Hemsworth family is famous for hot, talented men – and Liam is the perfect example. When he came across our screens in The Last Song, we knew we were in love – and so did his co-star and now fiance, Miley Cyrus. He went on to star in movies like The Hunger Games, Independence Day: Resurgence, and The Duel, and to win Miley’s heart, of course.
Emma Stone – $18m
We have a serious girl crush on Emma Stone. She can make us laugh hysterically, throw things at the screen in frustration, and even lay on the floor bawling. She continues to impress us in movies like Easy A, The Help, and La La Land, and as the highest paid actress in Hollywood, expect to see her gracing your screen another time realllll soon.
Jami Gertz – $2bn
What hasn’t Jami Gertz been in? Sixteen Candles, Crossroads, Less Than Zero, Twister… to name a few. After her decades-long extremely successful film career, she now lives in California with her husband and three kids – and with $2 billion in the bank, they’re not doing bad at all.
Sarah Hyland – $9m
Can we just say that we absolutely love Sarah Hyland? She’s super famous (and deservedly so) for her acting chops, but also gets major props for her openness and honesty on social media accounts. Sarah’s mainly known for playing Haley Dunphy on Modern Family, but she’s also appeared in Spanglish, Date and Switch, and a very, very long list of TV shows.
Amanda Seyfried – $10m
Amanda Seyfried broke onto the scene with her hilarious performance as Karen in Mean Girls – and her star has only risen since then. Amanda has more than just comedic timing, too – she’s an incredibly talented singer as well. After starring in Les Miserables and Mamma Mia!, there’s pretty much nothing Amanda can’t do.
Kristen Bell – $20m
We. love. Kristen. Bell. Could we say it any more clearly?! She stole our hearts as mini-detective Veronica Mars, and sang her way into our souls as Princess Anna in Frozen. In between, she had a few roles – you know, just on Heroes, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Boss… nbd. And she’s smart too – with $20 million in the bank, Kristen clearly doesn’t need a financial advisor.
Kate Upton – $20m
Kate Upton got famous for her first Sports Illustrated cover in 2011 – and then went on to cover the magazine in 2012 and 2013 as well. Now, she’s an actress too – she’s been in movies like Tower Heist and The Other Woman. Her life seems pretty sweet, we have to say – she’s even engaged to baseball player Justin Verlander!
Oprah Winfrey – $3.2bn
Who hasn’t heard of Oprah! She’s so famous, she can go by only a first name, or even just by the letter O. Oprah earned her fortune through her many business endeavors; she’s most famous for her hit show, but she also even has her own TV network and magazine. On top of all of that, she’s also an actress! We see you, Oprah – but then again, who doesn’t?!
Steven Spielberg – $3.6bn
Steven Spielberg is perhaps the most famous film director and producer to walk this earth. Okay, okay, we might be exaggerating – but he is seriously so talented. He’s the reason we have movies like Jaws, ET, Super 8, and sooooo many more. So for that alone, we say thank goodness for Spielberg! He has seriously earned is major fortune – no need for a financial advisor to get him that moolah.
George Lucas – $5.4bn
If you don’t know George Lucas, well, you should. He created Star Wars – and then sold the franchise to Disney for a cool $4 billion. Wow, George – he could be a financial advisor! And as a super rich and talented Hollywood legend, he is of course best friends with another one of his kind. He and friend Steven Spielberg created Indiana Jones together. Two hit franchises to his name? Basically, it’s the kind of success most of us can only dream of.
Martin Landau – $10m
Martin Landau has had so many hit roles over his career that he won 14 awards – including Golden Globes, Academy Awards, and more. He appeared in movies such as Mission Impossible, The Majestic, and Ed Wood, and was even on hit TV show Entourage. Sadly, Landau passed on in July of 2017 at age 89.
Hilary Duff – $25m
Hilary Duff has an amazing career and $25 million to her name – this is what dreams are made of! First known for her breakout role on Lizzie McGuire, Hilary played a relatable role model for a generation of tween girls. She’s also a talented singer, with several popular albums. She even has a cute son named Luca! Seriously, what can’t Hilary do? We think she’ll continue to be a role model for generations to come.
John Heard – $3.5 million
John Heard appeared in several cult classic movies, such as Big and Home Alone. He’s also well-known for his television roles, appearing in Miami Vice, Law and Order, and The Sopranos. Sadly, he passed away this year, but will always be remembered on screen.
George Romero – $35m
George Romero, aka father of the zombie movie! If you like movies about these evil living dead creatures, then you have Romero to thank. He’s directed movies such as Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and so on…you get the (terrifying) picture. Sadly, he passed away in July 2017, but will always be remembered for his genius, and for the zombie king that he is.
Chester Bennington – $30 million
Chester Bennington is famous for his musical talents – he was lead singer and songwriter for rock band Linkin Park, which made it big (more like huge) in the early 2000s. The band’s first album even went diamond – thanks to Bennington. Sadly, Bennington had a history of depression, and passed away in 2017.
Mila Kunis – $30m
Mila Kunis is known for her sarcastic wit, comedic timing, and of course – famous family! She got her start on That 70’s Show at the mere age of 14 (she even lied about her age to get the part) – where she would meet the man who would later become her husband, co-star Ashton Kutcher! Talk about a meet cute. She’s also a ridiculously talented actress, with recent film credits such as Friends with Benefits and Bad Moms.
U2 – $838m
We are pretty sure U2 is one of the biggest bands of all time – and always will be. The Irish group got their start in 1976, and continued on to basically rule the world of rock and roll. And let’s not forget, U2 gave us the gift of Bono! What would the world be without U2? We don’t like to think about it.
Tiger Woods – $740m
Outside of those known to hard core golfers, generally, the sport doesn’t really produce major stars. Well, that all changed with Tiger Woods. He’s so talented that soon, everyone in the world knew his name. He quickly ate up tons of endorsements, appearances, and of course, dozens and dozens of golf awards.
Jay-Z – $700m
Jay-Z is famous for two things – rap music and being married to the queen of the world, aka Beyonce. After proving himself as a music producer and rapper, he’s even recently gotten into the film industry – he produced the recent remake of Annie! And let’s not forget about his perfect family – with Queen B, he has three adorable children.
James Cameron – $700m
You may not have heard of James Cameron, but you sure as heck have heard of his movies! Where would we be without his hits, like Titanic and Avatar?! Cameron even found romance himself on the set of Titanic – he met his wife, Suzy Amis, while filming. And thank goodness, their love story had a way happier ending than the movie!
Dr. Dre – $700m
Beats By Dre. That’s pretty much all we have to say for you to understand why Dr. Dre (no, he didn’t actually go to medical school) is worth $700 million. Well, okay, he’s done a bit more than just make some sweet headphones. He created NWA Records, discovered Eminem (how did we not know this?!), and way, way more. Now, he’s even involved in the acting world – he recently produced the movie Straight Outta Compton. There’s nothing Dr. Dre can’t do!
