“I wanna be a billionaire so freakin’ bad…” Fortune and fame go together in Hollywood a lot like red carpets and ball gowns so it’s no surprise that Hollywood is filled with megastars whose net worth continue to climb higher and higher. However, A-listers like George Clooney whose net worth is $180 million or even Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie whose combined net worth is $385 million aren’t exactly sky-high when it comes to celebrity royalty.
With celebrities seemingly all about the Benjamins – after all, Madonna sang about it in “Material Girl” – there are more than a few celebs whose net worth just might surprise you. For example, how can an actress who hasn’t had a starring role in over a decade be a billionaire? How exactly does an NBA star make bigger paychecks off the court than on?
Between former child actors and rappers to basketball stars, Las Vegas divas and actors we haven’t seen in years, we found 16 celebrities whose net worth are sure to shock you! Which celebs have been smart with their investments, proven to be savvy in business or just downright lucky with money? Let’s get started with one of Hollywood’s favorite wizards with a list that really is all about the Benjamins.
