Well, we cannot deny the fact that they certainly have it easy—but without proper knowledge about money management, they can easily lose all of that as well.
The ones on this list did not simply make it big because of their huge talent fees, they were also savvy investors, who knew how to make their money work for them in more ways than one.
SANDRA BULLOCK – $200 MILLION
Hollywood wouldn’t be the same without a little bit of female power, right? That’s where actress and producer Sandra Bullock comes into the equation. She’s one of Hollywood’s top-notch celebrities and used to be the world’s highest-paid actress on two occasions. The first one was in 2010 thanks to her critically-acclaimed and commercially successful films such as The Proposal alongside Ryan Reynolds and The Blind Side. The latter set the record for the second-highest opening weekend, which was a couple of dollars shy from the record set by the movie New Moon. She then achieved the same level of success in 2014.
On top of her top-grossing films, Bullock also received a lot of awards and nominations coming from prestigious award-giving bodies. It is worth mentioning that she used to hold the 2nd spot on Forbes’ list of most powerful actresses of 2014. She holds an estimated net worth of $200 million.
