On the bright side, with the help of his excellent money management skills and maybe a financial advisor, he still got the most out of his paychecks.

In any case, Grace isn’t as ubiquitous on television and film like he used to be, but he’s still, to his credit, been landing a steady amount of roles in recent years.
We can only hope that they decide to do a reboot of That 70’s Show soon, and a lot of people will surely watch!

Indeed, some wealth tracking sites have listed him as the third wealthiest author in the world, surpassed only by J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame and Elisabeth Badinter, who’s said to be “France’s most influential intellectual.”

So, they took the name instead, and the rest, as they say, is history, as they managed to conquer the world with their music. Coldplay achieved worldwide fame when they released in 2000 their song Yellow, they were praised for the single and earned their first Grammy Award nomination. They finally won the award and Brit Award in the subsequent albums they released, A Rush of Blood to the Head and Viva la Vida.

Indeed, to his credit, McConaughey has already been able to bag a slew of awards for his many outstanding performances, and is one of Hollywood’s biggest draws, commanding a salary of around $15 to 20 million per film.
McConaughey has a lot of projects lined up, so we’re sure he’ll be increasing his net worth even further in the near future. He is well-known for his performances as one of the leading men in romantic comedies. As so, no doubt, he belongs to Hollywood’s A-listers and most recognizable faces. Outside of film productions, he also earns millions annually from various endorsement deals he’s made, most notably with Lincoln, a car company.

In any case, Smith is, to a huge degree, already an icon of cinema, and will continue to be in the years—nay, decades—to come. Back at the peak of his career, he has earned as much as $80 million. He didn’t only star in various box-office hits back then, but he also produced them and his music. Definitely, he fits to be ranked by Forbes as one of the most bankable stars worldwide.
CRISTIANO RONALDO—$500 Million
No celebrity net worth listicle will be complete without the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo, who is widely considered to be one of the best football players not just in this generation but in history, which makes it totally unsurprising that the man is worth an estimated $500 million. The value of his endorsement deals alone will make any sane person’s head spin. In fact, the $500 million estimates are being questioned by a few wealth tracking sites, because in their estimation, the man’s net worth is already at the border of $1 billion.
So, whatever the case may be, what’s certain is that Ronaldo is, to a considerable degree, one of the most enviable persons alive. Ronaldo is a Portuguese professional soccer player, playing forward for Serie A club Juventos. He is also the captain of the Portugal national team. Besides being considered one of the greatest soccer players globally, he is referred to as one of the highest-paid entertainers on the planet as well.

ELON MUSK—$210 Billion
Engineer, designer, technologist, and amazing entrepreneur, Elon Musk, who’s the founder and CEO of multi-billion dollar companies SpaceX and Tesla, is reported to be worth around $79 billion. Of course, we’re definitely not surprised, given the success of the companies mentioned above, as well as the success of Musk’s other, lesser-known, companies. Musk is also said to be the inspiration for the MCU’s character of Tony Stark, who was wonderfully played by Robert Downey Jr. in the Iron Man and Avengers films.
Weirdly enough, Musk said for an interview that he’d be ridding himself of all his real estate investments in the coming years. We’re not really sure why, but that’s what he said. Nevertheless, the business magnate never stops with his pioneering projects and ventures. In 2019, he ranked joint-first in Forbes’ list of the Most Innovative Leaders. By January 2021, he became the richest person in the world, beating the $20 billion gap in just a matter of four days.
FAN BINGBING—$100 Million

What’s more, Bingbing is also said to have a huge investment portfolio that includes real estate all over the world, as well as a slew of endorsement deals—with Chopard, L’Oreal, and a lot more else—that are worth millions of dollars.Fan became the first Asian actress to be dressed by the house of Louis Vuitton, which is a big thing in the fashion world. Internationally, her performances in the films X-Men and Iron Man franchises are much noted. Easily, she makes at least $15-$20 million from her movie projects and product endorsements combined.
Singer, songwriter, businessman and philanthropist, Paul David Hewson, who many know as “Bono,” the lead singer of the highly successful rock band U2, is reportedly the second richest rock star in the world. (The first, of course, is Sir Paul McCartney.) In any case, is there really any surprise that Bono is worth this much? Well, there shouldn’t be, given his long and illustrious career. He is, after all, one of the most celebrated artists in history, who’s famous for not just his music but also the various charities he’s helped throughout the years.
Indeed, Bono, to his credit, has been called “the face of fusion philanthropy” for his magnificent work in various humanitarian projects the world over. The Irish musician is also a political activist and venture capitalist. He is well known for his social justice causes thru his band and as an individual. Their concerts as a band would sometimes include holding it for the benefit of all his co-founded for his humanitarian campaigns.

He is reportedly worth $200 million. And, we’re not at all surprised, because there was a time—between the ‘80s and ‘90s—when every other comedy movie had him as a cast member. Murphy has, to some degree, been making people laugh for decades.
Interestingly enough, there are also rumors swirling around that Murphy landed a Netflix deal this year worth $70 million. As a film actor, his movies have grossed at the worldwide box office to about $6.7 billion, ranking him 6th of the highest-grossing American actors at the box office.

What’s more, Roberts is also an acclaimed author, with two bestsellers to her name, My Story, My Song: Mother-Daughter Reflections on Life and Faith (2102), and Everybody’s Got Something (2013).
She grew up in Mississippi and earned her degree at Southeastern Louisiana University while working as a sports anchor for the local radio and TV stations. Soon after, she became an honored ESPN sportscaster for 15 years, even earned herself an induction to the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame for her contribution to the impact of the sport through broadcasting work and play. Her seat as co-anchor of George Stephanopoulos in GMA led the program to earn the number-one spot as a morning show again.
RUSSELL WILSON—$135 MILLION
American football quarterback, Russell Wilson, who currently plays for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League, is reportedly worth a whopping $135 million. Interestingly enough, he was often overlooked because of his small stature (he’s not tiny, of course, but could be, compared to his colleagues in the sport), but was eventually able to prove everyone wrong and make a name for himself in the league.
And, to anyone who doubts Russell’s value to the league need only look at his contract which is valued at $87.6 million for a mere four years. The man, to his credit, is a phenomenal player, and we have no doubt that his net worth will increase—or even double—in the near future.
