12 Celebrities & Their Outrageous Net Worth You Won’t Believe Who Has The Largest!
It’s easy to assume all famous celebrities are rolling in cash, but many big stars aren’t as rich as you think. Of course, you’re not overestimating the wealth of every celebrity, because some stars are sitting atop larger fortunes than you would ever imagine. That said, the worth of some stars is very surprising, both on the high and low ends of the spectrum.
Money management skills, or lack thereof, can make a big difference between those with the most money and those with the least. Estimating celebrity net worth can be tricky because the public only sees a certain version of the star, which doesn’t always provide a realistic version of his or her life. Take a look at some of the most shocking celebrity net worths.
WILL SMITH – EST. $300 MILLION

Though this Prince of Bel-Air could now arguably be called the King of Hollywood, and despite the outward appearance of their mortgage-free mansion, Will and his wife stay humble and loyal to their fans. Due to his past success, Will could start looking at retirement and enjoy the fruits of his labor, but we have not heard the last of this adored superstar and his ever-growing investments and bank account.

From an incredible collection of twenty exotic cars to his sprawling $40-million dollar, 17,000 square foot mansion that requires the latest technology in home security, there is nothing his successful career in hip hop doesn’t afford him or his lavish lifestyle. Sean’s net worth may not stay at its current estimation for long, he has his own production companies in music and film, a successful clothing line, and a never-ending music career that includes permanent placement as a hip hop icon.

Her net worth of $200 million has not gone to her head as she still makes amazing choices in films that make us think, laugh, or feel. Perhaps that is best shown in the movie, “The Blind Side” which added Academy award-winning actress to her credit.

It also began the updating of all the cool technology used by the man in the mask including the high-tech Batmobile, which must have a killer insurance premium. We doubt with such a stunning net worth that things like the cost of insurance, the need for personal loans, or the need to have a budget are a concern for Nolan.

But because she is a savvy businesswoman who made intelligent investments she has the ability to pay cash for everything she owns thus eliminating the need to even have credit. Mariah never seems to slow down which has led to a couple of frightening hospitalizations that resulted from mental stress and exhaustion.

We hope she has more new music to share with us soon, we need our dose of realness that only Mariah can bring with her unique style.

We’re sure that her financial advisors started worrying about the potential for her to go back to her humble beginnings and have the need for credit repair services. J.K. instead has made smart moves in investment planning, so she will continue to live comfortably and be able to give as her heart desires. Today, the successful writer has shown that you can pursue your calling and overcome hardships and depression if you believe you can.

Milo got his big break when he started Technology Journalism. When he moved to the United States, he supported Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and often refers to Trump as “Daddy”.

LEONARDO DICAPRIO – EST. $245 MILLION
Leonardo DiCaprio is an American actor and producer with an impressive net worth of $245 million dollars. Over the years, he’s gone to incredible lengths to make sure the films that he starred in were of the highest quality possible. This has paid off as he finally received the elusive Oscar for his starring role in “The Revenant”, in our opinion way overdue looking at the critically acclaimed body of work to his credit.
Through his intricately mapped out career and equally detailed attention to financial planning, he has set himself up to retire whenever he has decided to rest on his success. We suspect, however, that it will not be anytime soon as he has expressed his love of acting in many interviews and it shows in the final productions. Leonardo, we love you too and can’t wait for your next release.
JULIA ROBERTS – EST. $200 MILLION
Julia Roberts is a highly-acclaimed American actress who has a net worth of $200 million dollars. She came to Hollywood having nothing to lose, often broke and miserable. But nowadays, she does not even blink when she pulls out her credit cards to pay a bill. Due to her successful career and is considered one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, she has erased the need to take out payday loans.
Roberts has been entertaining her fans with her acting chops for decades. Her success is not only in her professional life, after a path of broken hearts and a divorce attorney or two, but she has also had a long and happy marriage to her husband, Daniel Moder. She has investments in career, marriage, and motherhood that all have paid off big. We can’t wait to see what Julia does next!
ANGELINA JOLIE – EST. $160 MILLION
Angelina Jolie has enjoyed a successful acting career with unbelievably high grossing films to her credit. Her impressive body of work has resulted in well-earned awards, including an Academy Award, Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice Movie Award, and more. Jolie’s primary source of income is from acting, but she has also made a lot of her investment money from producing and directing.
Jolie, who has a production company named Jolie Pas, has produced movies, including “Maleficent “, “By the Sea”, “Unbroken”, and “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil”. The actress also earns money from product endorsements, including a $12 million deal with fashion brand St. John and a $10 million contract with Louis Vuitton. Angelina’s impressive $160 million dollar net worth has not suffered from her taking lots of time off between films because her acting is always beyond expectations.
JESSICA ALBA – EST. $350 MILLION
Jessica Alba is a talented actress and the mastermind behind the successful, The Honest Company, which she co-founded with a friend. We have not seen much of Alba in the acting field as she focuses most of her time and money management on her company. The Honest Company is known for producing natural and safe products and combined with her acting, she has generated a net worth of $350 million dollars.
She was probably capable of establishing the business even without loans, as it all started when Jessica conceived her first child and began looking for safe and organic products for her baby. When she saw the lack of it in the market, she decided to use her fame and business intelligence to start the now multi-billion dollar company. Kudos to this mompreneur who made the right kind of investments at home as well as at work.
PATRICK DEMPSEY – EST. $60 MILLION
Patrick Dempsey is an American television and film actor who has a net worth of $60 million dollars. He began his career in the 1980s with teen romances such as “Happy Together” and “Can’t Buy Me Love”. But, his role in the extremely popular medical drama series “Grey’s Anatomy” brought him high paying fame and recognition.
Most of his earnings come from acting in that popular series where his character was dubbed “Dr. McDreamy, and thanks to it, he now needs financial advisors to manage his investment money. Dempsey, who is aging like fine wine, is also a racer and takes it as seriously as his acting career. Though we have loved watching him on the long-running series, and can’t wait for his next heart-stopping race, we hope he is going to produce some more work as an actor, because his work brings us so much happiness.
BRAD PITT – EST. $300 MILLION
Brad Pitt needs no introduction. He is one of the topmost actors of the current decade. He has earned enough investment money over his career to have his own production company. A net worth of $300 million dollars means his six kids won’t have to worry about their credit scores, ever. It also means that he can afford to live in a kingly mansion without a mortgage and have a collection of luxury cars and not worry about getting loans to buy them.
The split-up of Brangelina has had his divorce attorney on constant retainer, but everyone hopes the disputes can come to a peaceful end for the sake of the kids. Though Pitt has redecorated his Los Angeles home to suit his bachelorhood, Jolie lives nearby with the kids, so as it seems fatherhood is more important to him than being eligible again. All the personal stuff aside, we are hoping to see more of the talented actor’s work soon, we need our Brad fix.
JEFFREY DEAN MORGAN- EST. $10 MILLION
As a co-star in “Supernatural”, Jeffrey Dean Morgan showed he is one of those exceptional actors who look perfect, even with a salt and pepper scruffy beard. He took his fame and that same look to a new level by playing the gut-wrenching role of Negan in the popular series “The Walking Dead” adding to his smart choices as an actor. Though he is not a movie star, Jeffrey has a large fan base due to his television career moves putting him in not one but two shows with a cult level following.
Along with his acting success, his investments and $10 million dollar net worth will make sure he never has to worry about his credit score or taking out loans for the rest of his life. He seems different from his peers, and his fans are in love with him. Jeffrey is an actor who is not afraid to do what he loves and make the right kind of investments to do it.
KATY PERRY – EST. $330 MILLION
Undoubtedly one of the best musicians of this age, Katy Perry had a humble beginning, and her family lived on payday loans and charity meals from the church. But things have changed dramatically now. Not only does she have a net worth of $330 million dollars, but she also has real estate investments and other impressive material wealth. Perry has been banking on her talents, and it paid off well, kudos to this singer!
With hit singles like “The One That Got Away”, “Fireworks”, “I Kissed A Girl”, “Roar”, and “Chained To The Rhythm”, Perry has made a strong place for herself in the music industry. And now she has moved well into her role as a judge on the reality TV show, “American Idol”. We are sure that it is helping her put a big amount of investment money away for the future, but we hope she keeps making music that we love to sing to!
CAMERON DIAZ – EST. $140 MILLION
Another A-list Hollywood actress, Cameron Diaz had a fulfilling career so far. She shot to fame with her performance in the movies “The Mask” and “Charlie’s Angels”. Outside of her stellar acting career, Cameron has some investments in real estate in New York, building on her $140 million dollar net worth. She has also been cruising around town in her Maserati, one of the most coveted sports cars on the market, and she didn’t have to take out any loans to get it.
Cameron has come a long way banking on her acting chops and requiring more high-level investment planning. The beautiful actress has become a mom and has been busy redecorating the house, increasing the need for a reliable home security system. Now that she is a mother she will be looking to make investments in life insurance policies with great money management she will set her family up for a lifetime of financial security without it.
JAMES PATTERSON – EST. $750 MILLION
Best-selling authors often have the honor to see their books adapted to movies, and James Patterson had that distinction dozens of times over the years. As one of the most celebrated book authors, he managed to earn an estimated $750 million dollar net worth. Credit reports and personal loans must be a joke to him as he has no need for either of them nowadays. Some of his most recognized works include “Alex Cross”, “Women’s Murder Club”, and “Witch And Wizard”.
He has topped Forbes’s list of the highest-paid authors multiple years over his career. Thankfully, Patterson is not the kind of person who spends the dividends from his investments only on himself. He has selflessly donated hefty sums for grants and scholarships and given to various charitable organizations, over the years. James is well-known for pushing literacy and being an activist for both reading and writing. We can’t wait to read what he imagines next!
CHARLIZE THERON- EST. $130 MILLION
Charlize Theron is a South African-born actress, model, and producer who has a net worth of $130 million dollars. Charlize was discovered by her first manager at a bank when she was yelling at a teller for refusing to cash a check. In the late 90s, she landed noted roles in films such as “The Cider House Rules” and “Mighty Joe Young”. In 2003, when Charlize was in the film “Monster” portraying female serial killer Aileen Wuornos, and for the role, she won The Academy Award, as well as a Golden Globe and SAG Award.
Playing Aileen got her recognition for both her acting and her ability to erase all evidence that she was a former model by drastically changing her appearance. Charlize has come such a long way from worrying about payday loans and credit reports are now able to buy a home without having to take out a mortgage. She is so beautiful and such a fantastic actress, we hope she has more films coming soon.
JESSICA BIEL – EST. $18 MILLION
Jessica Biel is an American actress, model, and singer who has a net worth of $18 million dollars.

She first rose to fame as the preacher’s daughter on the long-running hit show, “7th Heaven”. In her off-screen life, Biel has been an active philanthropist whose humanitarian and charity work earned her a nomination for a Do Something Award.
Jessica stretched her incredible acting talents with her own project, “The Sinner”, for which she was also the executive producer. Perhaps one of her best investments, however, wasn’t one that involved money management or financial gains. She invested in love and a successful marriage to Justin Timberlake. The two have maintained their romance for several years and now have a beautiful son, Silas, who they both love above anything money can buy. We can’t wait to see what she produces next, she makes great career choices we love to watch!
KATE HUDSON – EST. $80 MILLION
Kate Hudson is an American actress, producer, and entrepreneur who has a net worth of $80 million dollars. She famously re-acquired her childhood home without the need for loans because she wanted her own kids to build memories there. Though people may think her net worth is tied to her famous parents, actress Goldie Hawn and stepdad, Kurt Russell, she earned it all on her own.
Her breakout role in “Almost Famous” gave her awards, critical acclaim, and more starring roles to her credit. Now, her famous parents can concentrate on being Grandma and Grandpa while she stands in the spotlight on her own. Her net worth can also be attributed to her smart investment in a successful clothing line. Kate and two partners founded a subscription athleisure company called Fabletics. In a few short years, we should see her net worth burst out of its seams because Fabletics has moved into retail with 22 stores opening worldwide.
BRUCE WILLIS – EST. $180 MILLION
Bruce Willis is an actor, producer, and singer of great success. Let’s be honest, most of us know him as John McClane from the hit “Die Hard” series. Yet, he’s still appeared in over 60 films, and built a successful acting career most would envy. Though his career alone could account for his impressive net worth of $180 million dollars, he is well-established to be skilled in investment planning as well.
The role to his credit that brought him fame and millions of dollars in endorsement deals was as a snarky detective, David Addison, on the hit show, “Moonlighting”. This show truly launched his long-running career and gave him the need for financial advisors and smart money management before he ever became a movie star. We love Bruce and though his career has wound down, we know he loves acting and suspect (and hope) he will be doing it for years to come even though he could easily retire.
ED SHEERAN – EST. $110 MILLION

Ed is a music superstar who got his fame from YouTube and formed it into a net worth of $110 million dollars. Now the successful singer has made some serious investments in homes without mortgages and cars without the need for loans.
He continues to gain popularity and fame with every new release and shows no signs of slowing down on production. Though his financial future is seemingly set we are happy he is still young and has many years ahead of him. We love all the feels he gives us when his silky voice and thoughtfully written lyrics hit our ears.

Due to his spectacular money management skills, Sylvester Stallone’s net worth is an impressive retirement level of $400 million dollars, though he shows no signs of retiring anytime soon. In recent years Stallone has made a comeback in his newer films such as the highly successful hits “The Expendables” and “Creed” showing he can still add incredible movies to his already stellar credit. Today he is recognized all over the world for delivering some of the most memorable performances in history.
DREW BARRYMORE – EST. $125 MILLION
Drew Barrymore is an American actress, director, and producer who has a net worth of $125 million dollars. The role that would make her famous occurred when she appeared in the smash hit movie “E.T. the Extraterrestrial” when she was just a little girl. Fame at such a young age was not easy for Drew to handle. Barrymore struggled with drugs and alcohol while still young.
She chronicled these experiences in her autobiography, “Little Girl Lost”. Once she sobered up and straightened out, she made a successful transition to adult roles, and in 1990 made investments in her own production company, Flower Films. Barrymore has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to her credit and serves as Ambassador against Hunger for the U.N World Food organization and recently donated more than $1 million dollars to it. Now she is the executive producer on projects in which she often stars giving her insurance that she will never be without work as a performer, and we love it!
KRISTEN STEWART — EST. $70 MILLION
Kristen Stewart is an actress from Los Angeles, California.

Stewart pursued her film career after that and is today a well-known actress in Hollywood. Kristen Stewart’s net worth is estimated to be $70 million dollars.
We best know her for her performance in the wildly successful “Twilight” movies. Beyond acting, she has made some smart financial investments with the idea that she would protect her future. Though she has done some movies since the “Twilight” movies, it is not clear if she will continue acting or change her career path. We hope to see her again soon as she has a strong acting ability, and we aren’t ready for her to take her investment money and retire.
ELTON JOHN – EST. $500 MILLION
Sir Elton John is a living legend, and one of the most talented musicians to ever perform.

His tribute to Lady Diana after her death “Candle In The Wind 1997” became the best-selling single in the UK and instantly sold 33 million copies worldwide. Beyond his successful music career, Sir Elton has been well-known for his investments in lavish homes, requiring the most top of the line home security systems money can buy. We hope his investment planning and continued royalties don’t lead to a retirement, we love watching him perform.

From 2012 through 2014, he was number one on the highest-paid athlete’s lists of both Forbes and Sports Illustrated.
His fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2015 broke all previous records, grossing $600 million. We don’t know what he will do next, but we do know his family will never have to worry about personal loans or credit reports for generations to come. Perhaps one of his sweetest investments was when he bought his daughter a $5 million ring for her 18th birthday! Love him or hate him you can’t say he doesn’t make smart investments in his family.
ELLEN DEGENERES – EST. $450 MILLION
Ellen Degeneres is one of the most well-known comedians of our time and has grown her success within the last decade through her talk show The Ellen Degeneres Show. Through the years that the show has been on the air, it has won an astounding 80 plus awards and has amassed her $450 million dollars net worth. She has made investments in other shows that have seen great success as well. Also, to her credit, she has developed the best-selling clothing and lifestyle line, ED by Ellen.
Though her early career saw some ups and downs that left many wondering if she would be able to continue, Ellen has proven that perseverance and smart investment planning can lead to stellar success. If she so desired she could retire today and live out a beautiful life with her wife and beloved pets, but she is having too much fun and shows no signs of slowing down, and we are happy about that!
JACKIE CHAN – EST. $350 MILLION
Jackie Chan is a martial artist and actor who left his hometown of Hong Kong to start a career in Hollywood. Known for doing his own stunts and his lovable personality, it’s easy to see how he managed to produce hit after hit and grow his financial investments and bank account to $350 million. While Jackie may have made many insurance agents nervous due to his consistent desire to perform stunts without a double. On the other hand, producers love the box office draw it creates.
Jackie has also earned further credit and financial growth through his talents as a director, screenwriter, producer, singer, stunt director, and action choreographer. And if anyone has not found enough reason in all he has accomplished to adore him, he is also well-known for taking investment money and pouring it into charitable organizations and great causes. Nothing is more lovable than a cheerful philanthropist who can kick butt!

He has been able to amass impressive amounts of investment money and build a net worth of $55 million dollars. No wonder the swimmer drives a Land Rover and has a large acreage property in Arizona.
Phelps has been banking on his wins as well as his endorsements and thus has been able to build a stable financial future for his family. We hope his financial advisor has suggested some investments to him for his retirement days along with a life insurance policy for his wife and kids. After all, he seems to be highly committed to his family, and we know he would want them well taken care of for years to come.

In 1981, Gibson returned with ‘Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior’, which made him an international star. He also became a famous movie icon when he starred in ‘Lethal Weapon’ which became a huge hit. He then added directing and producing to his already amazing career bringing many awards to his credit.

His ability to pick great parts and breathtaking stories to tell catapulted him into being one of the top-earning actors of all time. We look forward to Mel continuing to put us on the edge of our seats and giving us all the feels unless he decides to retire due to his smart investments leaving him no need to work.
ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER – EST. $1.2 BILLION
A Broadway career with a show that is running for decades is clearly the key to becoming a billionaire. Andrew Lloyd Webber, the English composer of musical theater, has an estimated net worth of $1.2 billion. Born in Kensington, London, he earned his net worth through the composition of 13 musicals, a set of variations, a couple of film scores, a Latin Requiem Mass and a slew of smart investments. “The Phantom Of The Opera”, “Cats”, and “Evita” are some of his greatest and longest-running accomplishments.
And songs from these musicals were huge hits even outside the Broadway circuit. Webber is truly a living legend and belongs to an exclusive club of celebrities who have won an Oscar, a Tony, an Emmy, and a Grammy. Despite his accomplished career and well-earned reputation, Webber has often been accused of plagiarism causing him to keep a lawyer on retainer. Great success always draws controversy and drama, but we are sure that Andrew cries all the way to the bank.
GARTH BROOKS – EST. $330 MILLION

Minaj has made a name for herself as a rap queen, and now, she’s one of the richest female artists in the music industry.
She has also added to her impressive net worth with smart investments and collaborations with brands like MAC Cosmetics, films, music production, and more. Minaj did struggle a lot in her first years and even worked as a waitress at Red Lobster. But those days of payday loans and lack of investment money are over now! She keeps releasing top-selling records and chart smashing hits, and we don’t see her slowing down any time soon.

Seinfeld is on the threshold of joining the billionaire’s club thanks to impressive career moves and savvy investment planning. Though his show, “Seinfeld”, was over years back, the show has earned billions after it entered into syndication in 1995.
No wonder Jerry has grown bigger bank accounts and built up to his $920 million dollars net worth since then. Outside of his work as a comedian, he gained further fame for his investments in an impressive collection of Porsches, and some say the count continues to go up. With that collection and his purchase of a Lamborghini Miura with no loans necessary, we hope he has an outstanding life insurance policy since none of them are considered slow.
KEVIN COSTNER – EST. $250 MILLION
Investments in properties and cars seem to be the most popular for celebrities with a net worth over millions of dollars. Kevin Costner is no exception with his $250 million dollar net worth. He has obtained real estate without the need for loans or mortgages while requiring high-level homeowners insurance to protect his investments. Kevin has not made any films in recent years however, he can afford to be choosy about roles.
His smart investment planning has given him the ability to be picky. The body of work to his credit in such box office hits as “The Bodyguard”, “Bull Durham”, and “Dances with Wolves”, which won him an Oscar, are forever preserved to be enjoyed for decades to come. We hope to see more great performances from this veteran actor. Though it seems as though he has decided to retire on his investment money and enjoy his family instead.
MARTHA STEWART – EST. $638 MILLION
Despite all the hardships she faced on her way to the top, we can safely say that Martha Stewart is undoubtedly one of the most successful businesswomen around in this age. Though legal troubles followed her around in the past, she even went to prison, she managed to move past that and build an empire with a net worth of $638 million dollars.
She has made sure that her coming generations will never have to worry about taking payday loans or fussing over credit scores. Her famous Skylands ranch, which belonged to Edsel Ford, itself costs several million. But in case you want to see how Martha decorates her house, you can go there and get a house tour to see for yourself. You can definitely get some cues as to what you can do to improve your house decor without making investments in interior designers.
GEORGE LUCAS – EST. $5.5 BILLION
The maker of the hugely popular iconic “Star Wars” movie series is a multi-billionaire, that doesn’t come as a surprise, does it? Apart from the various investments he has made in real estate, the one that stands out is his Skywalker Ranch. It doubles as his working studio and the main office for his production company. It took close to $100 million dollars in investment money to build it, which to Lucas was play money.
A fleet of luxury cars, private jets, and now the first-ever Darth Vader car, George has an eclectic collection to be envied by all. Think of it, his father was a stationery store owner, and banking on his own creative talents, Lucas has built his empire and the need for a team of financial advisors. He didn’t forget to give back to society by adopting three children and all three of them appeared in his movies. Nothing says love like having your father let you be in the most iconic movies ever made. We love George’s imagination and hope he has a lot more left in his creative chamber.
STEVEN SPIELBERG – EST. $3.7 BILLION
Steven Spielberg is a highly successful director, screenwriter, and producer who has a net worth of $3.7 billion and an annual salary of $150 million. Steven Spielberg’s name is synonymous with film and his career spans over four decades. Spielberg has combined his vivid imagination and incredible money management skills to amass wealth most people could never even dream of having.
In 1975 Spielberg’s career skyrocketed with the success of “Jaws”. He would follow it up with “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and later team up with longtime friend and fellow filmmaker George Lucas to create “Indiana Jones” which was an even bigger hit. We could go on for days and never finish naming all the massive hits he has been a part of creating. None of his box office success compares to his investments in his large family. Though he shows no sign of retirement, he is known to be a dedicated family man and adored by them all.
KALEY CUOCO – EST. $55 MILLION
Television star from “The Big Bang Theory”, Kaley Cuoco has an impressive $55 million dollar net worth, and she does know how to spend it well. Her investments in a home with no mortgage and luxury cars that were obtained without credit reports or loans are enviable. Let’s hope she keeps slaying at work and never has to look into home finance and can always make her purchases with credit cards or cash.
Since the entertainment industry is so unpredictable, she will do good if she keeps some investment money stacked somewhere for future use. After all, a show cancellation or unsuccessful project can spell disaster for stars of big caliber as we’ve seen in the past. We hope Kaley continues to entertain us for years to come, but we hope she has protected herself and her financial future just in case.
JIM CARREY – EST. $150 MILLION
Jim Carrey’s acting chops have taken him to the pinnacle of success. He has been banking on his talent to make sure his family and the coming generations never have to worry about loans, home finance, or credit scores. Though his childhood was marred by poverty, his family managed to get by, and he emerged to have a successful career. His family’s investments in his talent paid off and Carrey went on to become one of the most talented actors and comedians in the industry.
He can handle comedy as well as serious movies, something other actors can’t always manage. We have also heard that despite being a stellar performer in comedies, he is serious in his life. Though his personal life has taken some dramatic turns, his talent will hopefully bring some more projects to his credit. No matter if the project is a drama or comedy, he compels us to watch and want more.
CHRISTINA AGUILERA – EST. $160 MILLION
Singing sensation Christina Aguilera has been missing in action for a while. But that doesn’t mean that her banking transactions have suffered much. For someone who has a net worth of $160 million dollars, credit scores or investment planning cannot be a source of worry. She is also known for her interest in interior design, purchasing homes without the need for home finance or loans, so she can decorate them at her leisure.
Not only has Christina done interior decorating and renovations in her own homes, but she has also famously helped other celebrities to renovate and decorate their houses, too. She seems to have great taste and an eye for design that everyone adores. We wonder if she ever thought of making more investments in this passion of hers and thinking of a full career change. She can increase her already impressive net worth; after all, who wouldn’t love to have their house made over by none other than Christina Aguilera, right?
BRITNEY SPEARS – EST. $215 MILLION
Britney Spears has had a career that spans decades as she got her start on The Mickey Mouse Club along with megastars, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Keri Russell, and Ryan Gosling.

Before her childhood stint with Disney, Britney’s family had humble beginnings and survived on credit cards and personal loans to get through. Now Britney owns lavish homes with no mortgages and drives luxury cars that required no credit reports or loans to buy. Today Britney has completed the most impressive comeback after some years of personal turmoil with a residency in Las Vegas that shows no signs of ending anytime soon. This pop diva shows you can have it all and still bring it night after night with premium entertainment.
RIHANNA – EST. $260 MILLION
Rihanna is undoubtedly one of the top singers in the industry right now. Her career is in full swing, and she has made millions towards her $260 million dollars net worth from her chart-busting albums and world tours. And now, she has investments in her own company Fenty Beauty. No wonder she can buy anything that holds her fancy.
Rihanna seems most proud of her million-dollar mansion in Barbados, which requires the latest technology in home security systems to keep the megastar safe. We know her business ventures will always turn out to be as profitable as her singing career, everything she touches turns to success. In fact, we have heard that several celebrities swear by her Fenty beauty products which shows how smart she is with her investment money.
JILLIAN MICHAELS – EST. $14 MILLION
Jillian Michaels is a personal trainer, reality show personality, talk show presenter, and entrepreneur who has a net worth of $14 million dollars. As a personal trainer, she has risen to fame thanks to her role on NBC’s The Biggest Loser, which she joined in 2004. Ever since, she has been helping people to lose weight through a healthy diet, accompanied by kickboxing, yoga, Pilates, and weight training.
While Jillian has shown business savvy making investments that pushed towards her large net worth, she has also been an active supporter of numerous charities like the NFL’s Play 60, Alliance for a Healthier Generation, Stand Up to Cancer, and Working Wardrobes, to name a few. She also has used investment money to develop products that are geared towards health and fitness. We don’t see her going out of the public eye and the fitness industry anytime soon, this for her is a lifestyle that she loves to share with the masses.
CIARA – EST. $20 MILLION
Ciara, while wildly successful, has chosen the quiet life and lives with her husband Russel Wilson and her two kids in Bellevue, Washington. Over her highly successful career she grew her $20 million dollars net worth through earnings from her music career and also some well-thought-out business investments. Her husband being a high-paid NFL quarterback along with her own multi-million dollar net worth will set their family up for generations, with proper investment planning.
They and their family will never have to worry about credit scores and seeking out loans which are a worry for some. Ciara has also earned serious cash flow through acting and modeling, and she continues to consult financial advisors on other investments and business moves to grow her bottom line even more. We are happy for all Ciara does and look forward to more!
DAVE CHAPELLE – EST. $42 MILLION
Dave Chappelle is a revered stand-up comedian, actor, and producer. Throughout his career, Chappelle has had multi-million dollar deals with TV Channels for performing his comedy acts; acted/starred in various films, and made a lot of his $42 million dollars net worth in the industry. Through other investments and his career, he has purchased a mansion and other homes without the need for home loans.
He also has his own fleet of luxury cars including a Porsche, a Rolls Royce, and a Lexus Hybrid that require maximum insurance to protect. Dave took a little time off to regroup and could afford to because of his smart money management having him financially sound. But we are so happy he reemerged ready to entertain us more, his humor and unique take on the world were sorely missed.
CHRIS HEMSWORTH – EST. $90 MILLION
Chris Hemsworth is an Australian born actor and model who has a net worth of $90 million dollars. Chris is probably most famous today for the role of Thor, but his net worth isn’t just the result of his embodying the God of Thunder. He has also made smart investments that led to the purchase of his $15 million dollars luxurious resort style house in Byron Bay without the need for a mortgage.
We believe with savvy investment planning he will continue to have an impressive bank account, a constant flow of cash, and no limit credit cards. Though he loves to spend time in his home country, we hope he keeps a home near Hollywood and projects that we love to see him do. It’s not hard to be a fan of the actor with the stellar looks and incredible personality and we all want more of him!
THE WEEKND – EST. $70 MILLION
Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, also known as The Weeknd, is a Canadian songwriter, singer, and record producer who began his career in 2010 by anonymously releasing his music on YouTube. When his work got endorsed by rapper Drake, there was no stopping him. He has made investments in furthering his music career by collaborating with the likes of Lana Del Ray and Ariana Grande. Seeing how he has so creatively built and navigated his career it is no surprise he has a net worth of $70 million dollars.
The Weeknd has a lot of passions but it seems with his love for luxury cars, it is safe to say that he needs his financial advisors to keep things straight for him so it doesn’t ever drive him to bankruptcy. We hope he remembers that keeping some investment money saved for later, though we doubt right now money management is less of a worry for him with his massive bank account.
TAYLOR SWIFT – EST. $360 MILLION
One might say that Taylor Swift made a career out of her failed relationships by turning her sorrows into songs that sell like crazy and always end up at the top of the charts. Knowing her relationship moves often make it into her music, it is hard for Swift to make investments in love. But we think a love interest should give himself a little credit since art is a reflection of our lives, she must have had the passion and how can that be bad?
Taylor knows how to turn everything she touches into gold and fills every performance with maximum electricity for her adoring fans. While she may have a net worth of $360 million dollars, she stays down to Earth when it comes to connecting with her fans. Taylor often thanks to them by inviting them to do everyday things with her when she has some downtime. We are happy the multi-talented star doesn’t look like she is going to retire on her investment money anytime soon, we are ready for some more Swift feels.
MARK WAHLBERG – EST. $255 MILLION
Mark Wahlberg gained his first fans as a solo music artist and Calvin Klein model before he switched to a career in acting. It turned out that acting was, even more, his thing, judging by his estimated net worth of $255 million dollars. As one of the privileged, he certainly does not get a headache when he pays his insurance premiums. Mark has also made the right kind of investments in his business dealings which helped him earn truckloads of investment money for his financial advisors to work with.
He and his brothers made the business a family affair with their own successful chain of burger joints called Wahlburgers. Mark also decided to get into the dealership business by buying a Chevy dealership. With money moves like this, it is no wonder his family will never have to worry about loans or credit reports. With smart money management, their security will last for generations.
LINDSAY LOHAN – EST. $500 MILLION
Lindsay Lohan’s career really took off after Mean Girls came out in 2004. From acting to singing, to modeling, to producing, the talented woman has done it all. However, all the success caught up to Lohan and she began to get in trouble. Her hard-partying and decline in reputation led to less mainstream acting roles.
In 2012, the IRS seized control of Lohan’s funds to pay off over $200,000 in back taxes. In addition, rehab fees, shopping sprees, and further IRS debts caused her to lose a lot of her net worth, leaving her now with $500,000,000. Reportedly, Charlie Sheen wrote her a check to help pay her debts and Oprah paid her $2 million to promote the Oprah Winfrey Network.
CLINT EASTWOOD – EST. $375 MILLION
Clinton Eastwood is an American actor, musician, director, and political figure. He rose to international fame with his role in the Dollars Trilogy of Spaghetti Westerns. Also, he sincerely gained his popularity as an actor by playing the infamous Dirty Harry with his line, “Go ahead, make my day” perhaps being the most widely used movie quote of all time.
While his success in entertainment alone could account for his staggering $375 million dollar net worth, intelligent investment planning to some degree is actually to be commended. Eastwood’s ideas about where to place investment money for the most gain coupled with trusting battle-proven financial advisors are most to thank for his stellar net worth. But our hearts and our hunger for true entertainment are hoping he will keep making films despite the fact that he doesn’t financially need to work another day in his life.
KEANU REEVES – EST. $360 MILLION
Keanu Reeves is most famous for his iconic role as Neo in the groundbreaking special effect’s masterpiece, “The Matrix” along with the remaining movies in the well-loved trilogy. Before that, he had started a comedic career in “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” and showed his heroic abilities alongside Sandra Bullock in the action thriller “Speed.” Despite all his successes that led him to his $360 million dollar net worth, he is perhaps one of the most humble and low-key celebrities on this list.
Keanu’s money management style is less about how many luxuries he can afford himself and more about how much he can give away to charity and worthy causes his heart is drawn towards. Since he favors living out of a suitcase and being more nomadic, we doubt he has a need for a home security system and more of a need for a great travel agent. We don’t care where he calls home as long as he continues to produce movies we love to watch him in like his “John Wick” series.
DONALD SUTHERLAND – EST. $400 MILLION
It has been reported that the total estimate of Donald Sutherland’s net worth reaches 400 million dollars, as of right now. Donald Sutherland has become famous because of his career as an actor from Canada. He was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada in 1935. Donald Sutherland is probably mostly known for his roles as a soldier in many war films, such as “The Dirty Dozen”, “Kelly’s Heroes”, “The Eagle Has Landed” ”.
In addition to appearing as a soldier, he has also appeared in other roles in other films, including “Casanova”, “Klute”, “JFK”, “Pride & Prejudice”, “The Hunger Games”, “Ordinary People”, “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” and “Don’t Look Now”. Thus, these films have also added up a lot to the overall amount of Donald Sutherland’s net worth.
JUSTIN BIEBER – EST. $265 MILLION
For someone who has been under the spotlight since the age of 11, it must have been easy to accumulate a net worth of $265 million dollars. Bieber has been the heartthrob of every young girl ever since he gained fame after being discovered on YouTube in 2007. When most kids were thinking of their GPA and getting a college degree, Justin was consulting a team of financial advisors on investment planning.
Justin has now straightened out and matured, but he did go through a period where he had to hire an attorney to help him navigate through some scrapes with the law. His maturity has spilled over to his personal life as he married his longtime girlfriend, Hailey Baldwin. Though his fame and career demands can be taxing to his time and relaxation, we hope he makes some healthy investments in his marriage and future family.
DR. PHIL – EST. $400 MILLION
Dr. Phil needs no introduction as his show with the same name has become hugely popular. No wonder his net worth is rising, too, and he has a staggering $400 million in bank accounts and healthy investments now. He had started his career with a small segment on Oprah Winfrey’s show, however, it became so popular that he planned to launch his own show, and in no time, he was himself a popular talk show host, too.
The show covers various social issues and is immensely popular. He has made big investments in real estate as he bought a $30 million house in Beverly Hills that required no mortgage. We hear the house has a library, game room, fitness center, as well as a pool. His car collection is equally impressive as it includes the likes of Ferrari and Porsche, and he didn’t even need to take out loans or have his credit score checked to obtain them!
