Celeb Net Worth: Battle of the Same Age
Hollywood celebrities have to face a lot of battles, like looking as ageless as possible. Of course, in an industry that values appearance, this type of battle is inevitable. Just think of Cher, George Clooney, Dolly Parton, and the likes; they seem to be the epitome of eternal youth.
Celebrities also have to fight to remain relevant—stay on the top of their game and be part of the A-list circle. Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie have succeeded in this category. They have been famous since the day they started until today, and by the looks of it, they will always perform exceptionally well—either performance-wise or profit-wise.
Of course, when you say celebrity, what will quickly come to mind aside from fame is wealth. Who among the above celebrities mentioned is not wealthy? None. Almost all of them are known for their huge net worth. However, when it comes to same-age stars, do they manage to attain the same level of fame and wealth? Who among them has made the best investments?
Let’s start a healthy competition and see who among these same-age celebrities are wealthier.
Tom Selleck VS John Lithgow (born in 1945)
Tom Selleck – $45 Million
Tom Selleck and John Lithgow are two award-winning actors who have bagged numerous movie projects and endorsement deals since they started in the 80s. Tom Selleck rose to fame for his role as private investigator Thomas Magnum in the television series Magnum, PI. Since then, major projects were lined-up for him, mostly landing cowboy and action roles, then transitioning to being a commercial model and ambassador of homeownership, mortgage rates, and lending for Coldwell Banker and American Advisors Group 2012.
All his accolades and projects have led him to establish a whopping net worth of $45 million, all while purchasing various properties on the side. Even as he entered his senior year, Selleck was still able to clinch leading roles, adding to his growing cash. His latest role for Blue Bloods has reportedly earned him a salary of $200,000 per episode.
John Lithgow – $45 Million
John Lithgow is known for his character as Reverend Shaw Moore in the 1984 box office hit movie Footloose. However, apart from being an award-winning actor, John Lithgow is also an accomplished author and poet. He has released poetry and children’s books throughout his writing career. Apart from being in front of the screen, Lithgow has had ventures in music, stage, and voice acting. By excelling in other fields outside Hollywood, the multi-talented actor made proper investment planning to continue increasing his earnings. His net worth is $45 million, which stems from his movie projects, business ventures, and authorship income.
Selleck and Lithgow seemed like they are living their lives in a similar status. After decades of successfully etching their name in the entertainment industry for their numerous movies and awards, both are still enjoying their $45 million net worth, without even thinking of retiring anytime soon.
Billy Dee Williams VS Bill Cosby (born in 1937)
Billy Dee Williams – $9 Million
Billy Dee Williams and Bill Cosby have a few things in common. Aside from being born in the same year and having almost the same name, they had high-flying Hollywood careers in the 80s. Billy Dee Williams is a multi-talented actor who has proven to excel in various fields aside from acting. He rose to stardom for his Star Wars role as Lando Calrissian and appeared in movies such as The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and Batman. On the side, he served as a musician, voice actor, painter, and artist.
With William’s multiple talents, it can be safe to say that these are big factors in making his net worth rise to $9 Million. Adding to this are earnings from his Beverly Hills mansion that he sold for $13 million in 2018 after undergoing major roofing and renovation.
Bill Cosby – $400 Million
Bill Cosby is famous for being a stand-up comedian who got his big break from the 1960s television show I-Spy before finally having his sitcom The Cosby Show. The actor would then produce more spin-offs of the show, significantly contributing to his massive $400 million net worth. However, as Bill Cosby had to deal with numerous cases filed against him, it seemed like a major chunk of his savings will go to various settlements and fees for his lawyers in the coming years.
Billy Dee Williams’ current standing is undeniably far behind Cosby’s $400 million when it comes to net worth. However, with Cosby currently being in a facility and with no ongoing projects to add to his savings, it seemed like Williams may catch up soon. After all, he is not yet retired from his career and can still land more roles.
Diana Ross VS Jacqueline Bisset (born in 1944)
Diana Ross – $250 Million
Diana Ross and Jacqueline Bisset are renowned Hollywood personalities who started their careers in the 60s. Both born in the same year, the two beautiful and equally-talented celebrities have gone a long way in building a towering amount of cash under their names.
Diana Ross came from one of the best-selling girl’s groups, The Supremes. Later on, she ventured into a solo career. As a sought-after singer during her time, she was wise to take the opportunity to focus on investment planning. Ross was able to buy luxury cars, countless real-estate properties, and expensive clothes and jewelry. Aside from having a whopping $250 million as net worth, Ross married Norwegian magnate Arne Næss, Jr in 2000, a move that may have contributed to having additional wealth on her side. As someone who is still active in Hollywood even after 60 years, Ross adds more to her growing income by being a film and television producer, screenwriter, and investing in a family business.
Jacqueline Bisset – $20 Million
More than fifty years after the airing of classic crime drama Bullitt in 1968, its lead star Jacqueline Frase Bisset is still the same actress whose striking beauty captures the heart of many fans. Throughout her career, she has been paired with Steve McQueen, Frank Sinatra, Paul Newman, and Nick Nolte, making her a sought-after leading lady. Now at 76, Bisset is savoring her net worth of $20 million from her previous movies, televisions, and endorsement earnings. She has purchased various properties in England and Los Angeles, including a two-story detached house she built beside her 17th Century country cottage near Reading in Berkshire. Bisset did not bat an eyelash to spend more money and consult her lawyers to legally build another property besides their family cottage, to which she was eventually allowed to.
Ross and Bissett have gone a long way ever since they started their careers in the 60s. To this day, both actresses are still active in show business despite having millions of savings to spend on retirement. Among the two, Ross is the one who no longer has to think of money loans or debts due to her massive savings.
Victoria Principal VS Cybill Shepherd (born in 1950)
Victoria Principal – $350 Million
Actresses Victoria Principal and Cybill Shepherd are both 70-year-old now. Both beautiful and successful Hollywood personalities have etched their names in the industry since they landed their big breaks in the 70s. Victoria Principal has landed in various movie and television roles in the 70s and was popularly known for her portrayal of Pamela Barnes Ewing in Dallas. Before having her biggest break, she moonlighted to various jobs and was a talent and booking agent. Principal derives her massive income from acting and businesses.
Besides her earnings as an actress and a book author, Principal was able to make investments for a skincare business line that reportedly earned her $1.5 billion before selling it to Guthy Renker for an approximate sum of $200 million. She eventually ventured into real estate when she purchased mansions in Beverly Hills, Malibu, Big Sur, and Switzerland. On top of these, Principal is an active philanthropist and has donated millions of dollars supporting various causes, including animal rescue. Her contributions to different advocacy campaigns do not make a tiny dent in her massive $350 million net worth today.
Cybill Shepherd – $40 Million
Cybill Sheperd is a known actress and model who started making a name at age 16. She was popularly known for her role as Jacy in Peter Bogdanovich’s The Last Picture Show and has since then clinched various movie and TV show roles. She has an accumulated net worth of $40 million from her Hollywood projects, real-estate purchases, and other businesses. Shepherd has brought massive mansions in Los Angeles and Tennessee.
Even as she can retire with that large sum of money in her bank account, Shepherd is far from leaving her Hollywood life soon. She is still accepting projects now and is a part of Vanessa Bayer’s showtime comedy I Love this For You. With their net worth, it is evident that Principal has earned more than Shepherd throughout their careers. Principal was able to grow her money using effective money management strategies and put them into various income-generating businesses.
John Travolta VS Ron Howard (born in 1954)
John Travolta – $250 Million
Many child actors in Hollywood eventually made it big later on in their careers. This included John Travolta and Ron Howard, who were both born in the same year and whose fame catapulted in the 70s. One of the most popular actors and singers of his time is John Travolta. The Grease actor has bagged roles here and there aside from his chart-topping albums. He eventually amassed a large amount of perfect income as investments money even when his stardom declined in the 80s.
With $250 million as his net worth, it is not surprising to know that Travolta still keeps his Boeing Business Jet with him. His incredible plane is said to have cost him millions of dollars to purchase and maintain. Travolta even earned a license at age 23 just to fly his luxury jet to any place he wanted, proving how massive his wealth can be.
Ron Howard – $200 Million
Film director Ron Howard started as a child actor who appeared in the television series The Twilight Zone. Despite having a long list of acting projects, Howard did not settle in being an actor. He went behind the camera and began his luck in directing. Howard then ventured to Hollywood’s business side, where he put up a film and television production, adding to his growing wealth of $200 million net worth. As if this is not enough, Howard and his wife Cheryl Alley bought real-estate properties in line with their money management strategies, including two apartments in New York City and a house in Connecticut and California.
Travolta and Howard have arrived at a certain point in their lives when they no longer have to think of money. Both are now living with multi-million in their banks. While Travolta is leading ahead with more than $50 million, it is not surprising to know that Howard may reach an equal status one day because of his side businesses.
Floyd Mayweather VS Tom Hardy (born in 1977)
Floyd Mayweather – $560 Million
At the age of 43, boxer Floyd Mayweather and actor Tom Hardy both have an established career and can retire anytime they want. They already have a large sum of money sitting in their bank accounts and are continually earning until now. Floyd Mayweather is one successful boxer who does not just maintain his untainted 50-0 record but also massive wealth. Although fans peg him as a $1 billion earner, a large sum of this goes to his taxes and other expenses, which leaves him with a whopping $560 million net worth.
Being one of the world’s highest-paid athletes, he does not only get his earnings from boxing alone. Money loans are not on Mayweather’s list of problems. He even adds cash to his fat bank accounts through endorsement deals and businesses, including the Mayweather Promotions and Mayweather Productions. Mayweather will ultimately reach another milestone in his wealth as the highest-paid boxer in the world in the coming years as he has not announced a retirement yet.
Tom Hardy – $45 Million
Being an A-list actor, Tom Hardy has been a familiar face both in movies and television shows. To name a few, his films Dunkirk and Inception were both a hit in the cinema while the BBC’s Peaky Blinders series gained numerous accolades. Hardy amassed big sums of earnings from all his projects, paving the way for him to rich a certain degree of wealth. His net worth is reportedly $45 million. To put his money to good use, Hardy put up Taboo Productions and shelled out $2.5 million. However, it was reported to be a financial flop and has made a big blow in Hardy’s income.
Floyd Mayweather and Tom Hardy may have taken different careers, but they made it big in their respective fields. However, in this case, Mayweather is undeniably running far from Hardy in terms of money. Mayweather is putting his money into certain businesses that are sure to grow fast and easy.
Lebron James VS Jonah Hill (born in 1984)
Lebron James – $500 Million
Lebron James and Jonah Hill are both young multi-millionaires who did not have to rely upon their parents’ fortune. Not only did they gain stardom at the young age of 37, but also millions of dollars from their respective careers. The two’s wealth will still definitely go up as both are unlikely to retire anytime soon.
James, for one, sits among the top 10 highest-paid NBA players. He has a net worth of $500 million. From 2016, James has been earning more than $80 million until 2019. The NBA player reportedly bagged another $85 million in contract extension until 2023. However, James does not just earn from basketball alone. Even when he no longer has to work on the side to pay loans and debts, James still makes more from his endorsement deals, reportedly are pegged at $55 million.
Jonah Hill – $50 Million
Jonah Hill is best known for his roles in hit movies Superbad and Moneyball, with his comedy antics and superb acting skills taking the credit. With more than 40 movies to boot, Hill’s acting eventually paved the way for him to have a net worth of $50 million. Now at 36, it seemed like Hill’s net worth will continue to rise as he continues to strive to land more serious roles. Hill may be looking into adding more earnings as he made multi-million real estate purchases. He bought a Colonial-style home in Santa Monica for $6.77 million, a post pad in Manhattan, and a home in Hollywood Hills.
Despite being in different fields, Jonah Hill and Lebron James proved how they could bring wealth to their bank accounts. However, James is way ahead of Hill because of his high-profile NBA player status when it comes to net worth.
Clint Eastwood VS Sean Connery (born in 1930)
Clint Eastwood – $375 Million
Clint Eastwood and Sean Connery are two of the most admired leading men in the history of Hollywood. They have embodied and influenced our notion of what masculinity is, and they’ve paved the way for younger generations to do the same. Virtuous, reserved, and handsome, Clint Eastwood has established himself to be one of the most enduring Hollywood icons in the industry. He is best known for his Spaghetti Western films and his antihero role in the Dirty Harry film franchise.
It’s a given that an enormous body of work and a solid reputation comes with a hefty bank account. Indeed, that is certainly the case with Clint Eastwood. With a net worth of $375 million, he is not only one of the most talented actors around, but he is also one of the richest. He must have had a brilliant financial advisor that enabled him to grow his wealth.
Sean Connery – $350 Million
Sean Connery was a Scottish actor who was best known for his credit role as James Bond and was one of Hollywood’s most recognizable faces. He also enjoyed relative success in critically acclaimed films such as The Untouchables, Indiana Jones, and The Hunt for Red October. The actor was so well-loved by his countrymen that he was even called “The Greatest Living Scotsman.” It is a title that Sean Connery will forever be known for despite his recent passing.
Nevertheless, his legacy continues to live on and will continue to do so for many years to come. However, more than his extraordinary contributions in the entertainment industry, it’s safe to say that he has left a substantial sum for his family to enjoy. He has a net worth of $350 million, which is slightly lower than Clint Eastwood but is more than enough for his descendants to survive and live comfortably.
Chuck Norris VS Al Pacino (born in 1940)
Chuck Norris – $70 Million
It’s impossible to talk about legendary action stars without mentioning Chuck Norris. He is widely known for being indestructible and undefeatable in his many films. He’s been the subject of hilarious memes circulating on the internet for his supposedly immortal body. He is best known for his martial arts skills, featured in some of the most memorable action films ever, such as Way of the Dragon, starring opposite Bruce Lee.
With such a historic and storied career, Norris was able to accumulate a massive fortune. Indeed, with a net worth of $70 million, he can surely afford many luxurious goods that ordinary people can only dream about. We just hope that he was able to buy a sound insurance plan as well so that his descendants could enjoy his fortune in its entirety. However, we’re pretty sure this living legend is careful with his wealth.
Al Pacino – $120 Million
Al Pacino is the quintessential gangster of the Hollywood film industry. He rose to international stardom for playing the cold and brutal Michael Corleone in the blockbuster Godfather film trilogy. However, his acting skills are not limited to a single genre; he also starred in some of the most critically acclaimed drama films such as Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico, and A Scent of a Woman, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Actor.
He is one of the few actors who has consistently earned at least $10 million for each film that he makes, regardless of the scale of the production. That alone should be enough to tell you how big of an actor he is. With such a big paycheck, he could easily buy several investment properties in Beverly Hills, California, and New York City. Now that’s what you call living in style!
Jake Gyllenhaal VS Ryan Gosling (born in 1980)
Jake Gyllenhaal – $80 Million
Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Gosling are two of the most versatile and talented actors in the industry. Unlike Gosling, however, Gyllenhaal first started as a child star. Nevertheless, as he got older, he remade himself as an actor and began to accept more serious, dramatic roles. Jake is perhaps best known for his box-office hits such as The Day After Tomorrow, Donnie Darko, Nightcrawler, and Brokeback Mountain, for which Jake earned an Academy Award nomination. Indeed, he has proven to his critics that he is more than just the typical leading man.
With a net worth of $80 million, he can surely afford many luxurious goods that are the envy of many. For instance, reports claim that the actor purchased a lavish investment property in New York City for $8.63 million. The extravagant abode has 2,868 square feet of floor area, three bedrooms, and a swimming pool.
Ryan Gosling – $70 Million
Don’t let his good looks fool you. Yes, he is one of the most handsome actors in the industry, but he is also one hell of an actor as well. Fan widely regard him for his credit roles in hugely successful movies such as The Notebook, Drive, Crazy Stupid Love, and La La Land. He also earned a Golden Globe nomination for his film Blue Valentine, responsible for solidifying his image as a Hollywood mature leading man.
Outside of the film industry, he is also an accomplished businessman as well. He invested in a Moroccan restaurant in Beverly Hills called Tagine. From the looks of it, it seems that Gyllenhaal has beaten Gosling in terms of net worth, although it wasn’t by much. Regardless, they are both talented and good looking actors who will continue to entertain us for years to come.
O. J. Simpson VS Ted Danson (born in 1947)
O.J. Simpson – $3 Million
O.J. Simpson and Ted Danson are both accomplished television personalities, each with his own unique talents. However, while Danson was an actor from the very start of his career, O.J. Simpson rose to fame for being an NFL player, who, at one time, became one of the highest-paid athletes in the world. We can say that he might have used this fame to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, where he became a successful actor and television producer.
Due to various legal troubles, he’s no longer earning as much as he used to when he was at the peak of his career. In fact, his only income only comes from his pension money as a former NFL player. He reportedly earns around $10,565 a month, which is a far cry from other big names on this list. His sole investment is a modest mansion in Brentwood, California.
Ted Danson – $80 Million
While O.J. Simpson’s career has gone into shambles, Ted Danson continues to flourish until this day. He is a talented actor who rose to fame for his credit role as Sam Malone on the iconic TV show Cheers. Ted Danson also appeared in other successful shows such as CSI, Becker, and The Good Place. He has also garnered numerous awards and recognitions such as three Golden Globe Awards and two Emmy Awards throughout his career.
With a current net worth of $80 million, Ted Danson clearly outmatched O.J. Simpson in the battle for the larger net worth. Indeed, unlike Simpson, he has several properties across the country, mostly in Los Angeles. Ted recently sold a nine-acre property in California in 2019 for $8.75 million. In the same year, he also bought a $5.2 million mansion in Santa Monica.
Sidney Poitier VS William Daniels (born in 1927)
Sidney Poitier – $25 Million
Sidney Poitier and William Daniels are both iconic actors who were very prominent, especially in the latter half of the 20th century. Sidney Poitier, however, had a much more storied and inspiring career. He was the first black person to win the coveted Best Actor Award at the 1964 Academy Awards for his iconic role as Homer Smith in the critically acclaimed film Lilies of the Field. Because of his win, he has inspired many young black actors to follow in his footsteps, the most famous being Denzel Washington.
At 93 years of age, he is still going strong, and although he has already retired from the industry, we think it’s safe to say that he has been enjoying a comfortable life with his substantial net worth of $25 million. We just hope that he got the chance to buy an insurance plan when he was younger to secure his family’s future.
William Daniels – $5 Million
William Daniels is one of the most respected actors in the industry. He became widely known for his role as Dustin Hoffman’s father in the classic film The Graduate. However, his credit role as Mr. Feeny in the coming-of-age TV show Boy Meets World was the one that raised him to international stardom, especially among younger audiences. He also appeared in the popular TV series St. Elsewhere, for which he won two Emmy Awards.
His net worth is a measly $5 million when compared to Poitier’s $25 million. Nevertheless, Daniels is as equally beloved by his fans as Poitier, and with his career still ongoing, we’re sure he will continue to delight and entertain audiences around the world. He recently appeared in the 2013 remake of Boy Meets World, where he reprised his role as Mr. Feeny. Hopefully, William signs more projects in the near future.
Lisa Bonet VS Kate Walsh (born in 1967)
Lisa Bonet – $14 Million
Lisa Bonet and Kate Walsh are both successful American actresses who have enjoyed a relatively stable and prolific career. Lisa Bonet rose to fame for her credit role as Denise Huxtable in the hit TV series The Cosby Show. What makes her even more incredible, however, is that she is also a staunch activist. Because of this, many sought-after leading men became attracted to her, such as Lenny Kravitz and her current partner and husband, Jason Momoa.
With her current net worth of $14 million, we’re quite sure that she will continue to live a comfortable, if not extravagant, lifestyle. However, we still hope that she could purchase an insurance plan for her two children with Jason to secure their future in case of an unforeseeable event. If not, we strongly advise her to do as it would ease up her mind later on.
Kate Walsh – $20 Million
Like Lisa Bonet, Kate Walsh is equally gorgeous at 53 years old. She is an actress who rose to fame for her appearance in the long-running TV series Grey’s Anatomy. Interestingly, her career started in the most unusual of places—Japan, where the actress worked as a model before returning to American to pursue a career in acting. She also reprised her credit role in the spinoff series of Grey’s Anatomy called Private Practice. However, as the years went by, Kate gained more and more projects, further cementing her name in the industry.
Kate Walsh has trumped over Lisa Bonet when it comes to their net worth, perhaps because the former is more prolific and has enjoyed more diverse roles than the latter. Nevertheless, they are both beautiful and stunning even at an advanced age, and we’re confident we’ll see more of their talents in the coming years.
Anthony Anderson VS Ethan Hawke (born in 1970)
Anthony Anderson – $25 Million
Anthony Anderson and Ethan Hawke are like the yin and yang of the entertainment industry. While Ethan Hawke excels in dramatic and more serious roles, Anthony Anderson flourishes in comedy. People widely recognize him for his roles in some of the most memorable and hilarious television shows and films such as Black-ish, The Bernie Mac Show, Scary Movie film franchise, and Transformers.
With a net worth of $25 Million, he could afford several investment properties, most notably his 3,451-square-foot mansion in Los Angeles, California, which he bought for $1.1 million in 2005. He is also known for being a car connoisseur whose favorite car is the $200,000 Mercedes Maybach. We’re more than confident that he still has a lot to achieve as he is truly one of his generation’s most gifted comics. His fans are, for sure, looking forward to seeing him again on the big screen.
Ethan Hawke – $55 Million
Unlike Anthony Anderson, Ethan Hawke prides himself on being a serious dramatic actor. From an early age, he already knew that he wanted to be a professional actor. He is said to have joined numerous school productions during his teenage years. Eventually, his dream came true when he debuted in the classic film Dead Poets Society, starring alongside the legendary Robin Williams. However, perhaps his credit role in the hugely successful film trilogy shot him to international stardom.
His net worth is more than twice that of Anthony Anderson’s, which is not so surprising since it seems that dramatic actors earn more than that of their comedic counterparts. With a net worth of $55 million, we’re confident that he also enjoys a comfortable lifestyle like many of his famous contemporaries. However, we would still advise him to be cautious of his money and start planning his retirement as well.
LEE MAJORS VS TINA TURNER (born in 1939)
LEE MAJORS – $15 Million
Lee Majors and Tina Turner both have remarkable longevity in their own career paths. On the one hand, Majors is an actor who mostly starred in drama and action shows and films, while Turner is a legendary musician. Turner dabbled in acting and appeared in many films. One of her acting credits is an action film Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, and she received an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in Motion Picture. This achievement makes both actors acclaimed action film stars! While both have starred in action films, Majors is the real action star as he created his career being one.
Even with the successful careers, both Majors and Turner have had struggles, but they overcame them. They’re both 81 years old now, yet they’re still going strong in their health and careers because of their great insurances. Just like what Turner’s song says, they’re “simply the best.”
TINA TURNER – $270 Million
Majors and Turner have been big stars for decades! They have earned so much through their careers, and they deserve every cent of it. Majors’ net worth in 2021 reportedly reaches over $15 million, and that’s a good feat for a well-known celebrity who started their career in the early 60s. Turner’s career has garnered her a net worth of $270 million. As a singer, she sold 200 million records, and she toured the world with her classics.
Comparing these two’s net worth, the winner would be Turner. Her career is more prominent, and as a musician, the legendary singer’s songs have a broad reach worldwide. Majors made his mark as an actor and earned his due credit. His net worth is more than enough for him. Turner’s net worth is astronomically much more, and it reflects what she has done for her career and the music she has given us.
DENNIS RODMAN VS EDDIE MURPHY (born in 1961)
DENNIS RODMAN – $500,000
Dennis Rodman and Eddie Murphy are two well-known names in their industries. Rodman was a professional basketball player who created a legacy in the league for his incredible defensive plays. On the other hand, Murphy is one of the best comedic actors in Hollywood and has many classic films under his name. The two had experienced rough childhoods, but that didn’t stop them from pursuing their careers.
Rodman was infamous for becoming controversial at a turning point in his career. He even became an actor to prove that he has not run out of gas. His few films were panned by the critics, while Murphy won awards for many of his projects. Whatever happened, the two of them are prominent personalities in their industries and as celebrities. Rodman and Murphy both got into multiple relationships, which was not surprising with their charm and style.
EDDIE MURPHY – $200 Million
Rodman and Murphy’s net worths have a considerable difference. The former has a reported net worth of $500,000 in 2021, while the latter has an appraised net value of $200 million! Rodman earned a lot of money from his basketball career and other ventures like his television appearances. He even won $222,000 in the ABC show Celebrity Mole in 2004. Unfortunately, the former basketball player has been through a lot in life, and his net worth plummeted. Meanwhile, Murphy built his career decade after decade, and his smart investments have steadily risen his net worth.
Murphy wins this one with a massive gap, and that’s no surprise. His career is still going strong, and the great actor continues to show his remarkable acting talent with the roles and films he gets. Rodman is still holding firm, and fans should applaud him for his tenacity. Both men are incredible and deserve all the praise they get.
PAT SAJAK VS SYLVESTER STALLONE (born in 1946)
PAT SAJAK – $70 Million
Pat Sajak and Sylvester Stallone are two celebrities who are still going strong in their careers. They’re still both active in what they do, and their names have never left the limelight. Sajak is a well-known television game show host who has been nominated multiple times and has won a few times for his fantastic work. He has hosted one of the most-known game shows worldwide, Wheel of Fortune, for more than three decades!
Stallone continues to be an amazing actor, director, and screenwriter through the decades. He started as a struggling aspiring actor, but Stallone proved why he deserves all the nominations and awards he has received in his career after his breakthrough. Sajak and Stallone’s career might not be buzzworthy at times, but no one can deny how they became staple names in Hollywood and on our television screens. The two continue to prove they have not run out of gas and are still going strong.
SYLVESTER STALLONE – $420 Million
These two amazing men have created long-standing careers and have earned so much on their ventures. Sajak has a net worth of $70 million in 2021 with all of his experiences, investments, and long-standing hosting career in Wheel of Fortune. It’s no surprise that the game show host has collected such net worth from seeing all of his show’s contestants’ gameplays.
Unsurprisingly, Stallone has a net worth of $420 million in 2021. His projects as a director, screenwriter, and actor earned him millions of dollars. Some of his films are classic films too, and box office hits. His net worth amount matches the hard work in all of the movies and roles he has done in his career. The winner between the two is Stallone, but there’s no denying that both of them have done a great deal in the industry to have a significant net worth.
WESLEY SNIPES VS JIM CARREY (born in 1962)
WESLEY SNIPES – $10 Million
Wesley Snipes and Jim Carrey are both amazing actors who continue to produce fantastic work up to this day. Although Wesley became known for his knack for action films, he also shined through comedy like Jim. Their comedic timing and performance make the audience remember and praise them. It’s no surprise that both Snipes and Carrey had received many nominations and awards for their performances.
They are still different types of actors, though, with Snipes being a trained martial artist. The actor can do moves and stunts by himself. Nevertheless, both of the actors’ careers went into a stagnant phase, but they manage to come back and serve outstanding performances in their recent films and appearances. Snipes and Carrey are remarkable actors who have overcome many challenges, and they should receive credit for their perseverance and not running out of motivation.
JIM CARREY – $180 Million
Both well-known actors have done so much in their careers, but their net worth has a massive difference. Snipes has a reported $10 million net worth in 2021, which is still notable for his long career. On the other hand, Carrey has a reported $180 million net worth in 2021. Thanks to this information, Jim became one of the richest comedians in the industry and the world. He made smart investments even while his career was not at the top. Plus, he has more significant films than Snipes, classic movies that people globally know and remember.
Carrey wins with his $180 million net worth. He’s a well-known comedian globally, and he has made a massive mark in the industry for being a great comedian. However, people should not disregard Wesley’s career because he has also contributed many films to the industry. Plus, he is still going strong with his job, just like Carrey, and even earns nominations for his fantastic craft.

With this in mind, it isn’t surprising that Rashad’s net worth has reached $55 million as of today. As for Kate Jackson, she decided to exit the spotlight in early 2010. Jackson must have sought a quiet life outside Hollywood after her lengthy career. It hasn’t always been sunshine for Jackson, but she still manages to prevail in the end.

Pierce Brosnan and Tim Allen are both known to be great movie stars in Hollywood. Both have been in several blockbuster films, and both are ridiculously rich. It is safe to say that these two might be part of the most influential actors that many youngsters look up to in the business.

His friends made him do stand-up comedy one night, and to his surprise, he was a natural at it. He pursued it and became very successful in the field. His big break was when he got cast in the TV show Home Improvement, where he was paid $1.25 million per episode at the height of the series.
Up to date, this is still the fifth-highest TV actor salary in history. He did other projects, such as The Santa Clause, Santa Clause 2, Santa Clause 3, Galaxy Quest, Redbelt, The Shaggy Dog, and Zoom. He voiced Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story as well. Though both Pierce Brosnan and Tim Allen have proved to be a great movie and TV stars, it is apparent that Pierce’s net worth is twice as high as Tim’s. That is probably because Tim had to deal with lawyers quite a lot.

He starred in five James Bond films since 2006 and said in a statement that the 2021 No Time to Die would be his last Bond film. Daniel reportedly earned $85.4 million in all those Bond films, and it’s no wonder that he now has a $160-million net worth.
