Millions of people throughout the world undoubtedly aspire to the fame, the glitz, and the life of a Hollywood movie star. Every year, a large number of brilliant individuals travel to Hollywood in the hopes of realizing their dreams.
It’s no secret that actresses that are successful are compensated handsomely. With all the money, they have access to opulent items of which millions of other people can only dream. They are the real-life idols to their admirers, and their movies and television series are shown all over the world. When people become prosperous, they can easily earn money by just selling their names (to put it simple). Some prominent actors even transition from acting to producing and directing their own films.
They don’t have to worry about money as most people do because they have so many millions. We wish to introduce you to the top 10 Hollywood celebrities that are the wealthiest in 2018 today.
List Of 10 Richest Hollywood Celebrity of 2018:
10. Adam Sandler – $340 million
This man undoubtedly possesses a wide range of skills; he is an actor, comedian, screenwriter, film producer, and musician. Following his popularity on Saturday Night Live, Adam went on to star in numerous Hollywood movies, grossing over $2 billion at the box office. Billy Madison (1995), Happy Gilmore (1996), Big Daddy (1999), Mr. Deeds (2002), Grown Ups (2010), and the voicing of the two Hotel Transylvania characters are just a few of the humorous roles he is best known for (2012 and 2015). Many of his movies, most notably Jack and Jill, received negative reviews, which led to a tie for second place with Sylvester Stallone in terms of the amount of Raspberry Awards and Raspberry Award nominations. He got an exclusive contract for four films with Netflix in late 2014, moving him up to eighth on the list as of right now.
9. Keanu Reeves – $350 million
He being listed at this position on the list may surprise you. In the 1990s and the first decade of the 2000s, Keanu was at the height of his popularity in such films as Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), Speed (1994), and the immensely popular The Matrix Trilogy. There is a well-known story about the Matrix actor who donated $80 million of his $114 million salary from The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions to the makeup and special effects team. His notoriety has recently increased again thanks to the John Wick movie series, which makes him, along with Neo, yet another renowned figure. Over $200 million has been made from the sequel’s overall sales. He received only $2 to $2.5 million for the John Wick 2 movie, though.
8. Clint Eastwood – $370 million
This person is legendary. Clint Eastwood, an American actor, director, and producer, was born in 1930 and has been active in the movie business for more than 60 years. Therefore, it is clear why he is on the list. Following his breakthrough in the Western TV series Rawhide, he gained renown in Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy of spaghetti westerns in the 1960s as the Man with No Name and as the anti-hero cop Harry Callahan in the five Dirty Harry movies in the 1970s and 1980s. For his efforts on the Western picture Unforgiven (1992) and the sports drama Million Dollar Baby, he received Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Picture (2004). The last time we really saw him in a movie was in 2012’s Trouble with the Curve, but for the time being, he has been busy directing and producing, which keeps the money coming into his bank account.
7. Bill Cosby – $380 million
Like Clint Eastwood, he is a legend in the Hollywood film industry and is best recognized for his work on The Cosby Show and Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. Bill Cosby, an American stand-up comedian, actor, musician, and author, was born in 1937. He appeared on a number of well-known variety shows, including The Ed Sullivan Show (1948). His major break came in 1965 when he played “Alexander Scott” in I Spy. Many of his high school friends, such as Mushmouth, Weird Harold, Dumb Donald on Fat Albert, and the Cosby Kids were the inspiration for his Filmation cartoons (1972). Despite the humor in the theme, the emphasis is mainly on Cosby’s role in education. He is still among the top 10 wealthiest actors in Hollywood even if we don’t often see his recent work and he was still appearing in public and receiving large syndication cheques.
6. Tom Hanks – $390 million
Thomas Jeffrey Hanks, a reputable and well-known actor and director who was born in 1956, rose to the top of the Hollywood film business thanks to his roles in movies like Saving Private Ryan, Forrest Gump, Toy Story, and The Green Mile. He is the third highest-grossing actor in North America, according to Wikipedia, with films that have earned over $4.5 billion in US and Canadian box offices and more than $9.0 billion globally. His performance in Philadelphia (1993) earned him a Golden Globe Award, an Academy Award for Best Actor, and a People’s Choice Award for Best Actor in Forrest Gump (1994). Forrest Gump’s lead part earned him his biggest salary of more than $70 million, and the sequel Toy Story brought in another $40 million or so (according to Statistic Brain).
5. Jack Nicholson – $400 million
Since quite some time ago until today, we haven’t heard from him. It appears that the actor is no longer interested in performing. He last appeared on television in 2010’s How Do You Know. The Shining, a 1980 thriller, is the one movie that Nicholson is most recognized for. Even the iconic “Here’s Johnny” line from the movie, which has since become a well-known movie quotation, was added by him. He has won three Academy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Drama, two Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy, and one Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor. Due to a portion of sales for his portrayal of the Joker in the 1989 Batman film, he made $60 million.
4. Tyler Perry – $450 million
Tyler Perry, who was born Emmitt Perry Jr., is a director, producer, playwright, screenwriter, singer, and actor of theater and film. The musical theater play “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which catapulted him to fame in 1998, was inspired by a letter he wrote to himself about how to handle problems. According to reports, the plays generated over $100 million in ticket and product sales. He will continue to amass wealth with his upcoming roles in Madea films and television series including For Better or Worse, If Loving You Is Wrong, and The Haves and the Have Nots. However, Tyler Perry has never won or been nominated for an Oscar for any of these efforts, but they have caused his bank account to be drawn to that of another extraordinarily famous actor.
3. Johnny Depp – $450 million
It is not surprising to see this man among the top three. Johnny Depp quit high school at the age of 16, and he eventually formed the band The Kids to pursue his musical ambitions. In 1984’s A Night on Elm Street, he made his acting debut. His breakthrough came later, when he played Officer Tom Hanson in the 1987 television series 21 Jump Street, although he quit the show in 1990 to focus on his acting career. The “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, “Ed Wood,” “Donnie Brasco,” “Edward Scissorhands,” “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” and “Ed Wood” are some of Johnny Depp’s most well-liked movies. According to reports, he received $185 million for playing Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. He has received three nominations for Oscars, but not having won any of them.
2. Tom Cruise – $480 million
Tom Cruise made his film debut in the teen comedy Risky Business in 1983, and his performance as the fighter jock Maverick in Top Gun broke box office records (1986). His films are widely regarded as being incredibly successful. His roles in movies like The Color of Money, Cocktail, Rain Man, Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles, Oblivion, Jack Reacher, Vanilla Sky, Knight and Day, and Edge of Tomorrow are set to make him well-known. Tom Cruise’s ability to be successful from one movie to the next is largely due to his inventiveness in creating his own stunt. Only a very small number of actors similar to him have reached their acting careers’ pinnacle point. Cruise has previously been nominated for three Academy Awards and three Golden Globes. He received $290 million over the course of the Mission Impossible Saga, making him reputedly the highest paid actor for a single role.
1. Jerry Seinfeld — $820 million
American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, producer, and director Jerry Seinfeld was born in 1954. Seinfeld, his own television series, made him famous. Reruns of the nine-season program are pretty much always available. Later, he developed the programs Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and The Marriage Ref. Seinfeld is known for his observational humor, for which Comedy Central rated him the “12th Greatest Stand-up Comedian of All Time” in 2005. The 2007 movie Bee Movie, which was introduced to Netflix in 2017, was produced and starred in by Seinfeld. Seinfeld signed a contract with Netflix to appear on their program. Since the last episode aired, the sitcom has generated close to $3.1 billion in revenue, with Seinfeld reportedly earning $267 million annually. Along with that, Seinfeld also had endorsement contracts, such as the $10 million Microsoft ads from 2008.
The richest refers to someone with a net worth of at least $100 million. Given their immense global fame, I suppose there is no question that these actors make the list. But all of this achievement is unquestionably the result of perseverance, devotion, hard work, and practice. Even if one person may be more successful than another, the main factor is always just hard effort. After you have put forth a lot of effort is when luck comes. Naturally, as you can see, some of these actors are becoming older and fresh talent is emerging. Let’s keep a watch out for who will drop off and join the list in 2022.
