When it comes to A-list celebrities, you know they are paid more than most people will ever see in their lifetime. For some, more than TWO lifetimes. It’s just the name of the game when it comes to Hollywood. If you think about it, some celebrities are paid millions simply for appearing in a movie for a few minutes. For example, Julia Roberts was paid an eye-popping $3 million for shooting only four days on Gary Marshall’s film Mother’s Day. That’s $750,000 per day! Talk about a nice piece of change.
And that’s just the tip of the celebrity salary iceberg. Last year, the cast of the hit TV show, The Big Bang Theory, renegotiated their contracts so they would make $1.5 million per episode. That’s $36 million for a 24-episode season that shoots only six months out of the year! Who wouldn’t want that gig? And while yes, it’s easy to criticize celebrities for how much money they earn. We also have to say it’s important to realize they work hard. Acting is a talent and while some people are better at it than others, it can be a grueling job day in and day out.
We decided to do a little research and find out the net worth of some of the biggest names in Hollywood and you better believe they will leave you green with envy and absolutely speechless. For example, Madonna is worth $550 million! Honestly, we can see why all of her boyfriends are straight out of high school! Here are 30 celebrities and their current net worth. Read if you must, but we promise by the time you reach number one you’ll be rethinking your career path.
