We are back with part two of our richest actresses in the world. Some of the entries on this list might surprise you! Stay tuned for part three, coming very soon.
Number Thirteen: Amy Irving
Surprised to see her on this list? Amy might not be one of the most renowned Hollywood actresses out there (especially not overseas), but she does have an enviable fortune. Most of her wealth doesn’t come from her acting gigs but from a whopping divorce settlement provided by ex-husband Steven Spielberg. She was granted $100 million from their failed marriage agreement. Net worth: $120 million.
Number Twelve: Nicole Kidman
Kidman’s restless work ethic has gotten her a place on this list. Nicole began her acting career as a teenager, working on several school productions, despite suffering from crippling shyness. Worldwide recognition came to her with Batman Forever, although getting married to action superstar Tom Cruise did, in fact, give a little push to her celebrity status as well. Net worth: $130 million.
Number Eleven: Drew Barrymore
It’s not surprising to find Drew Barrymore in this list. Coming from a lineage of A-list stage and film actors, as well as being Steven Spielberg’s goddaughter, Barrymore was just meant to be a successful actress. Despite going through a rebellious phase filled with drug and alcohol abuse, Barrymore found her way back into the right track and co-founded a prosperous production company that continues to add substantial amounts of money to her revenue. Net worth: $150 million.
Number Ten: Angelina Jolie
America’s heroine Angelina Jolie has starred in dozens of high-grossing Hollywood blockbusters. Jolie dedicates most of her time to her children, as well as her humanitarian work carried out all over the planet. The multitalented actress, somehow, still manages to find time to act and direct. She is currently working on an upcoming Cambodian documentary. Net worth: $150 million.
Number Nine: Demi Moore
Moore has been on an acting semi-hiatus for a few years now, but that’s not an issue for her. Her paycheck in Andrew Bergman’s Striptease made history as the highest salary for an actress at the time—12.5 million dollars. Net worth: $150 million.
Number Eight: One of the Most Highly Regarded Actresses – Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston has a notable portfolio of romantic comedies, including Love Happens and The Break-Up. In the late ’90s, she became the highest paid TV actress, earning a staggering $1 million per episode (along with co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow) in the hit sitcom Friends. Net worth: $150 million.
Number Seven: Miley Cyrus
There is probably no need to elaborate on this particular entry. Miley Cyrus’ Hannah Montana settled her for life. She was named the richest teen in 2011, as well as the sixth best-paid child star on TV. Cyrus got paid $15,000 per 20-minute episode (not nearly as much as Miranda Cosgrove’s $180,000 per iCarly episode) but made five times that amount for every concert she threw. Net worth: $160 million.
