When it comes to finding the richest of the rich, all eyes always turn to Hollywood, home of the famous, glamorous, and of course, the wealthiest in the world. Now, the question is, who is the richest actor in Hollywood?
Who is the richest actor in Hollywood?
It is surprising to know that a star whose glory days date back to the early 90s got the number one spot as the richest actor in Hollywood. How is this possible considering that his hit sitcom aired almost two decades ago?
Although the last episode of the Emmy award-winning sitcom was played on television 16 years ago, the celebrity continues to earn millions from the show with thousands of fans – new and old – still hooked on the comedy sitcom. In fact, Seinfeld received at least $400 million from syndication deals for the show. Moreover, more than $3 billion has been collected just from reruns of the show. Aside from income generated by the sitcom, the 60-year old Hollywood star also made lots of money from projects like The Bee Movie that added millions to his income.
How much is Mr. Seinfeld actually worth?
So just how much exactly is Jerry Seinfeld worth? It is estimated that he has a net worth of $820 million in 2014. This could buy him a couple of yachts, a few private jets, and perhaps a dozen houses in the best spots around the world while still having spare for luxurious vacations around the world. With this much money going into his bank account, Jerry Seinfeld truly has had the last laugh!
Following Mr. Seinfeld is Tom Cruise with a whopping net worth of $480 million from big movie projects, Tyler Perry who has a net worth of $450 million collected from his plays, books, and films, and Johnny Depp with $450 million net worth after his back-to-back movie appearances in the past three years.
The lesson to be learned from these great actors is that hard work truly pays off. One common factor among all four is that they did not start big, but they all worked their way up gradually until becoming an “overnight” success.
