Robert Downey Jr.

Net Worth: $300 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Iron Man

Robert Downey Jr. is undoubtedly one of the most celebrated actors today, and he’s currently known for his credit role as “Tony Stark.” Robert Downey Jr. masterfully played Iron Man for more than a decade now, and it’ll be hard to imagine another actor for the role.

Without a doubt, there’s nothing else to expect but excellence from a charismatic and award-winning actor like RDJ.

Robert Downey Jr. essentially started the MCU, and he’s earned a total of $200 million over the past decade from Marvel alone.

Chris Hemsworth

Net Worth: $130 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Thor


Chris Hemsworth has been known for his credit role as “Thor” in the MCU for the past decade. Hemsworth’s performance as Thor made him one of the most beloved characters in the franchise, and it’ll be quite awkward to see another actor play the role. He has been able to reprise his role as Thor in eight Marvel Cinematic Universe films, earning him millions in the process. Hemsworth first played Thor in the 2011 movie “Thor,” and his most recent appearance was in Avengers: Endgame in 2019.

Mark Ruffalo

Net Worth: $35 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Incredible Hulk


Movie fans who witnessed the dawn of the MCU are aware that the original actor who played Hulk was Edward Norton. Ed Norton played The Hulk’s role in the 2008 movie only to hand the role over to Mark Ruffalo. Ruffalo indeed made the most of the opportunity and went on to play the Hulk for several MCU films. In his eight years as “The Incredible Hulk,” Mark Ruffalo has reportedly earned millions, increasing his personal fortune to $30 million in the process.

Mark Ruffalo’s acting prowess isn’t limited to doing superhero movies, too. The modern-day Incredible Hulk already had a tenured acting career before taking over the responsibility of playing Bruce Banner. Ruffalo had numerous film credits, and was able to receive a few awards for his roles in  Collateral, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Shutter Island, Foxcatcher, and more! It’s no wonder that he was able to make “The Incredible Hulk” incredibly relatable to all Marvel fans and moviegoers alike!

Chris Evans

Net Worth: $80 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Captain America

Captain America is just as well-loved as the other superheroes and characters in the MCU. For more than a decade now, Chris Evans played the role masterfully in eleven MCU films. Evans is no stranger to film adaptations of comic books as he already starred in Fantastic Four and The Losers. It’s no wonder Evans was able to adjust to the role of “Captain America” so easily! By reprising his role as “Captain America” for the past decade, he has been able to earn millions in the process. Evans is certainly in a better financial place today than during his pre-MCU days since now has an $80 million net worth!

Interestingly, Chris Evans recently signed off on his role as “Captain America” for the MCU franchise. Evans said that he’s interested in trying out new things, and he’s already started receiving credit as a film director. However, he’s still open to continue his acting career and possibly reprising his MCU role in the future. For now, it’ll certainly be difficult to see another actor play the Captain in the next MCU movies.

Scarlett Johansson

Net Worth: $165 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Black Widow


Scarlett Johansson is undoubtedly one of the most talented actresses in the film industry today. Scarlett continued to reprise her credit role as “Black Widow” in numerous MCU films since 2010, and she won’t be stopping anytime soon. She’s reportedly earned millions from her appearances as Black Widow, and she has been able to increase her net worth to $165 million!

Interestingly, “Black Widow” isn’t the only role that Scarlett Johansson is known for. She’s already starred in a long list of blockbuster films and was already one of Hollywood’s highest-earning actresses before she accepted the role. Interestingly, Scarlett was also making millions off the screen as she’s a savvy businesswoman and real estate investor! Expect Scarlett to continue making millions and increase her net worth even more as she’ll be starring and appearing in more MCU films over the next few years!

Gwyneth Paltrow

Net Worth: $150 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Pepper Potts


Gwyneth Paltrow is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actresses. The MCU certainly felt that they could use Paltrow’s acting prowess to play the role of “Pepper Potts” in numerous MCU films. In the MCU, Pepper Potts is the CEO of Stark Industries and the love interest of Tony Stark. Potts eventually married Tony Stark and had a kid with him. Although it may be unclear for die-hard fans to figure out Paltrow’s exact role in the MCU, she still played the part undoubtedly well. She’s appeared as Pepper Potts in all of the “Iron Man” films and most recently in the last Avengers movie.

It’s unclear how much Paltrow made in each of her film credits in the MCU franchise. However, she’s certainly one of the wealthiest MCU stars as she sits on a personal net worth of $150 million. Interestingly, she recently announced that she’ll no longer be reprising her role as “Pepper Potts.” It’ll undoubtedly be a challenge for Marvel to develop a plan that can deal with Paltrow’s departure from the MCU.

Benedict Cumberbatch

Net Worth: $40 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Doctor Strange


Benedict Cumberbatch is one of the most versatile and talented actors today. He can take credit for starring in numerous blockbuster movies such as Sherlock, 12 Years A Slave, The Imitation Game, and many more. Cumberbatch recently joined the line up of MCU stars by playing “Doctor Strange” in the franchise. Since his first appearance in the MCU in 2016, he’s already appeared in four MCU titles, with his most recent appearance being in Avengers: Endgame. Benedict Cumberbatch also reportedly earned $4.7 million as “Doctor Strange” in the four titles that he’s been in.

Benedict Cumberbatch isn’t leaving his MCU role anytime soon, and interestingly, he’s due for a raise. Cumberbatch is looking at a $9.6 million contract to play “Doctor Strange” once again in the upcoming MCU films. His role as “Doctor Strange” will definitely bring in more money, and will be increasing his current net worth of $40 million in no time!

Don Cheadle

Net Worth: $35 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: War Machine/James Rhodes


Don Cheadle plays the role of “James Rhodes” or “War Machine” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s definitely added his own flair to the character, giving comic relief to each MCU film he’s been involved with. Interestingly, Don Cheadle wasn’t the original actor for “War Machine.” In the first “Iron Man” movie, it was Terrence Howard who played the role of “James Rhodes.” He handed the keys over when Cheadle became “War Machine” for “Iron Man 2,” “Avengers,” and the succeeding MCU titles.

Don Cheadle undoubtedly ran away from the role and made millions in the process. Cheadle was reportedly making around $4 million to $7 million per film! It’s no wonder he earned a $30 million fortune in such a short time! Without a doubt, the “War Machine” role is now synonymous with Don’s personality. Some Marvel fans don’t even recall that it was Terrence Howard who originally received credit for the “War Machine” role!

Tom Holland

Net Worth: $15 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Spiderman/Peter Parker


Tom Holland is the most recent addition to the long list of actors who played Spiderman. Holland’s Spiderman reprisal began in 2016 in “Captain America: Civil War,” with his most recent appearance coming in the last Avengers film in 2019. Holland reportedly makes between $4 million to $5 million for his role as Spiderman in the MCU and currently sits on a $15 million net worth. There are rumors that he’ll be receiving a raise as he’s set to appear in more MCU films with “Spiderman” as the main focus.

Tom Holland already had numerous film credits to his name before he was cast as Spiderman. We’ll be interested to know if the 25-year-old star continues to cultivate his non-Marvel career while taking on the role of “Spiderman” in the MCU. One thing’s for sure; we’re definitely interested to see his growth as an actor and as Spiderman in the next MCU films.

Paul Rudd

Net Worth: $70 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Ant Man

Paul Rudd rightfully belongs in this list of Hollywood’s most famous actors. He already had numerous film credits to his name, and he’s managed to add a few others from the MCU. Rudd currently plays the role of “Ant-Man” in the MCU. He starred in the standalone film for Ant-Man back in 2015, and he reprised the role in Ant-Man 2 and Avengers: End Game. Interestingly, Paul Rudd was one of the highest-paid actors among the MCU stars. For appearing in three MCU films, he was given a combined salary of $41 million, bringing his total net worth to $70 million.

We don’t know if Paul Rudd will be stepping away from his Marvel role anytime soon. Marvel fans will surely prefer that Rudd continue because his personality is a perfect fit for the character. Expect more of Rudd and his signature humor as he’ll once again star in a standalone MCU film in 2022 entitled Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.   

Elizabeth Olsen

Net Worth: $11 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Wanda Maximoff


Elizabeth Olsen is best known for her credit role as “Wanda Maximoff” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The character is a spin on the Marvel Comics character “the Scarlet Witch.” Elizabeth Olsen began portraying the character in the 2014 MCU film Captain America: The Winter Soldier, appearing in the succeeding MCU films year after year.

Olsen was part of the most recent Avengers: Endgame film in which her co-stars reportedly made $15 million to $20 million. Not much is known about how much Olsen made overall from her role as “Wanda Maximoff”, but we’re pretty confident that it’s in the same ballpark as her Avengers co-stars. As of 2020, Olsen is sitting on a net worth of $11 million. Expect this figure to rise as she has more MCU projects lined up for her over the next few years.

Anthony Mackie

Net Worth: $8 million

Movie: MCU/Avengers

Character: Falcon

Anthony Dwane Mackie has been portraying the MCU superhero “Sam Wilson,” also known as “Falcon,” since the 2014 film Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The “Falcon” character is based on a Marvel Comics superhero that was introduced by Stan Lee back in 1969. Mackie has been able to reprise his credit role as “Falcon” in seven MCU films, with his most recent appearance being in Avengers: Endgame. 

There isn’t much known about the total amount that Anthony Mackie earned playing “Falcon” on the big screen. However, his net worth in 2018 was $4 million and it jumped to $8 million in 2020. Because of this, it’s reasonable to speculate that he got paid somewhere between $3 million to $4 million for playing “Falcon.” Expect this figure to grow more as Anthony Mackie will be starring in a Marvel/Disney plus series called The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Interestingly, Mackie will be juggling his schedule between his Disney plus series, a Netflix series called Altered Carbon, and his MCU responsibilities!

She has a long list of credit roles, including her role as “Shuri” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Shuri” is the sister of “T’Challa,” also known as Black Panther, and Wright has been portraying the role since the 2018 MCU film Black Panther. She’s been able to reprise her role as “Shuri” in three MCU films, with her most recent appearance being in Avengers: Endgame. It isn’t clear how much she’s made for playing the role so far, but we’re confident that it forms a decent part of her $4 million net worth today.

Expect Letitia to reprise her role as “Shuri” in the next MCU films, projects, and spin-offs. She’ll be taking over the mantle of “Black Panther” in a revamped superhero lineup. With her increased responsibilities, it’s reasonable to speculate that Wright will be getting a pay raise too!

As cool as it may sound, Rogue actually considers her powers to be a curse because it forces her to distance herself from those she loves. Anna Paquin, the beautiful and talented actress who played the character, gave a brilliant and spot-on performance that perfectly embodied the essence of the character.

This isn’t really so surprising as she is truly an exceptional actress who is known for her other films, including The Piano, Amistad, The Romantics, as well as for her credit role in the hit television series True Blood. We should expect to see more of her in the future as she is only 38 years old, so we still have a lifetime of her work to look forward to.

James Marsden

Net Worth: $8 Million

Movie: X-Men

Character: Cyclops


The casting director of X-Men was really on point in hiring James Marsden, for the latter played the character flawlessly, embodying the nuances and physical features of the character, Cyclops. He was, to his credit, able to portray Cyclops’ unique superhero ability with ease and excellent timing. Moreover, James was able to act with style, performing Cyclops’ ability to release powerful rays of energy from his eyes, which he cannot control without the aid of special eyewear.

It’s not such a marvel, then, that he was chosen for the role as James has a heartthrob vibe that clearly shows in his other films, such as in Enchanted, 27 Dresses, and Hairspray. We wonder if one can get insurance for a pretty face as James’s face is most certainly his greatest asset. We love seeing him on the screen, so we can’t wait to see him in the future.

Shawn Ashmore

Net Worth: $3 Million

Movie: X-Men

Character: Iceman


Shawn Ashmore is another remarkable actor who rightly belongs to the star-studded cast of the X-Men film franchise. His credit role as Iceman has captivated audiences worldwide for his cool superhero abilities. As the name of the character suggests, Shawn Ashmore effortlessly executed the character’s ability to influence ice and cold by freezing water vapor around him. This allows him to freeze objects, as well as turn his body into ice.

Shawn Ashmore’s awesomeness can also be seen in his other projects such as the Disney film Cadet Kelly, as well as in his numerous TV appearances, including In a Heartbeat, The Following, Smallville, The Outer Limits, and Fringe. What most people don’t know, however, is that he has also shown an impeccable taste in real estate investing. He once bought a lavish mansion in Studio City, California for $1.9 million.

Rebecca Romijn

Net Worth: $20 Million

Movie: X-Men

Character: Mystique

Have you ever wondered who the person behind the infamous shapeshifter Mystique is? Well, as it turns out, she is, to a huge degree, one of the most gorgeous women in the entertainment industry! In fact, reputable magazines such as FHM and Maxim named her one of the most beautiful women in the world. It’s kind of ironic that her stunning beauty was hidden behind the character’s thorny blue skin. Nevertheless, she was able to give justice to the role as she is easily one of the most memorable characters in the entire film franchise.

Interestingly, it seems that Mystique’s shapeshifting abilities have translated into Rebecca’s personal life as well as she is known to wear multiple hats, such as being a real estate investor and a successful entrepreneur who has launched her own jewelry line called Charlie Dolly — it’s been reported that she designs the jewelry herself.

Daniel Cudmore

Net Worth: $4 Million

Movie: X-Men

Character: Colossus


The next actor on this list has had an interesting career. He first started out as a stuntman but was eventually able to find his way as one of the most handsome men in the entertainment industry. Indeed, with a height of 6 feet and 7 inches, his incredible physique is one of the reasons why he is the perfect actor to play the imposing X-Men character, Colossus. Furthermore, he has done a great job in showing another side of the character: quiet, honest, and virtuous.

Daniel Cudmore is also, to some degree, widely regarded for his other successful movie projects, which include his credit role as Felix in The Twilight Saga, and as Manticore in Percy Jackson and The Olympians. There’s no doubt that he has the talent for acting, that’s why we’re happy to see him finally getting what was always meant for him.

Elliot Page

Net Worth: $12 Million

Movie: X-Men

Character: Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat


Elliot Page has become an inspiring figure lately for bravely embracing himself as he transitioned from being a woman to a man. He has shown extraordinary courage and a contagious positive attitude. All of these attributes must be the reason why he was so good in portraying the X-Men mutant, Kitty Pryde (Shadowcat), who is known for her ability to go through matter and walk through objects. It is indicative of Elliot’s ability to face many obstacles and challenges in his personal life.

He is also widely regarded for his captivating performance in films like Juno and the blockbuster hit Inception. However, people might also be surprised to know that he is also a successful real estate investor. In 2014, Elliot bought an investment property in Nichols Canyon, Los Angeles, for $1.7 million, which he then sold in 2019 for $2.1 million.

Kelsey Grammer

Net Worth: $80 Million

Movie: X-Men

Character: Dr. Hank McCoy/Beast


Kelsey Grammer is a highly talented individual with multiple credits as an actor and comedian, director, producer, and writer. He is perhaps best known for playing Frasier Crane on the show Cheers and its spin-off sitcom Frasier. His other films include A Christmas Carol, Transformers, and Like Father. He even voiced characters in films like Anastasia and Toy Story 2, as well as in the iconic animated television series The Simpsons.

However, his affable demeanor didn’t stop him from exploring tougher and more serious characters, and that’s exactly what he did when decided to play the character Beast in the X-Men film franchise. Although he wasn’t very young when he accepted the role, he was still able to embody Beast’s superhero abilities, like heightened reflexes, strength, and agility. That’s something only a professional and experienced actor can do.

James McAvoy

Net Worth: $17 Million

Movie: X-Men

Character: Professor X


James McAvoy played the younger version of Professor Charles Xavier in the remake of the X-Men film franchise. He brought a unique and interesting perspective to the character, which made us know more about the mysterious origin of the iconic Professor. He added an intensity to the role that wasn’t in the original film franchise. However, his net worth of $17 million didn’t only come from this movie alone. McAvoy is one of the most prolific actors in the industry today with movies as wide-ranging as the characters he plays.

His other movie credits include Wanted, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Last King of Scotland, Split, and many more. He is truly exceptional whenever we see him on the screen, and we can’t wait to see more of his work in the future.

Michael Fassbender

Net Worth: $40 Million

Movie: X-Men

Character: Magneto


Michael Fassbender’s portrayal of Magneto as the leader of the brotherhood of mutants against humans was, to his credit, one of the reasons why the rebooted X-Men franchise was way more successful and critically acclaimed than the previous one. This is because Fassbender added emotional depth to the character, which was formerly unheard of. Even though he was playing a villain, we can’t help but sympathize with his character, having seen his struggles in life.

Indeed, Fassbender’s beloved performance in the film isn’t so surprising considering that he has also done the same in other successful movies such as Hunger, Inglorious Basterds, 12 Years a Slave, Steve Jobs, and many more. With so many profitable movies under his belt, he was able to amass a net worth of $40 million, which he then invested into various lucrative ventures.

Jennifer Lawrence

Net Worth: $160 Million

Movie: X-Men

Character: Mystique


Like Rebecca Romijn before her, Jennifer Lawrence is another gorgeous actress who played the blue-skinned shape-shifter, Mystique. She played the younger version of the latter who did a great job in showing the more vulnerable side of the character. Jennifer also proved to be quite capable in doing action scenes as seen in her incredible agility and reflexes. Unlike her character, however, who is content with having sidekick status, Jennifer is actually one of the most sought-after leading ladies in the industry today.

Moreover, she is also one of the highest-paid actresses with a net worth of $160 million. She used that money to invest in real estate. She reportedly bought a 5,500-square-foot investment property in Beverly Hills for $8.2 million, and a penthouse apartment in New York for a whopping $15.6 million.

Nicholas Hoult

Net Worth: $8 Million

Movie: X-Men

However, he finally rose to international stardom for his credit role as Tony Stonem in the hit teenage drama series Skins, a role for which he was nominated for a Golden Nymph Award for Best Actor.

Contrary to the petrifying and dreary appearance of his character in X-Men, Nicolas Hoult is somewhat of a heartthrob himself. He once dated Jennifer Lawrence, who is considered to be one of the most gorgeous actresses in the industry today. Since 2017, he has also been involved with the stunning American model, Bryanaa Holly Bezlaj, which resulted in them having a son together in 2018.

Margot Robbie

Net Worth: $26 Million

Movie: Suicide Squad

Character: Harley Quinn

Margot Robbie is one of the rising stars in the industry today who has already shown enormous potential to be an icon in the future. She has been making waves recently in movies such as The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus, The Big Short, and I, Tonya. However, it was her credit role as Harley Quinn in the hit superhero movie, Suicide Squad, that truly put her in the spotlight. She has shown her fans that she was the perfect actress to play the crazy supervillainess and love interest of the equally crazy, Joker.

As mad as she was in the movie, however, she has shown that she is incredibly sane when it comes to financial matters. Indeed, she owns several lavish investment properties in America and Australia. According to reports, she owns a $2.7 million property in Los Angeles, which features a swimming pool, a private balcony, and a wine cellar, among many others.

Jared Leto

Net Worth: $90 Million

Movie: Suicide Squad

Character: Joker

It is perhaps an understatement to call Jared Leto a versatile actor. Indeed, if you have watched his films, you will notice the immense effort that he puts into every single role that he plays. He first flaunted his acting chops in the 1994 television show My So-Called Life, but received further recognition for his films such as Fight Club, Requiem for a Dream, Girl, Interrupted, and Dallas Buyers Club, for which he won the coveted Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. His ability to play such a wide variety of characters and express complicated emotions are the some of the reasons why he was fit to play Joker.

People might be surprised to know, however, that he is a budding entrepreneur as well. He recently announced his investments in various companies such as Reddit, the private airline Surf Air, and the financial company called Robinhood.

Will Smith

Net Worth: $350 Million

Movie: Suicide Squad

Character: Deadshot

If Deadshot’s known for never missing in the DC Universe then the man portraying him was obviously the right choice since Will Smith is always on cue when it comes to acting. Regarded as the actor with the highest net worth in the Suicide Squad cast, Smith has a net worth of $350 million and is considered to be one of the wealthiest actors in the world.

Smith’s debuted in the sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Since the early 90s, Smith has been at the top of the industry.

No matter what character he plays as or no matter what movie he’s placed in, rest assured he’ll be serving you nothing but quality and well-spent time.

Cara Delevingne

Net Worth: $28 Million

Movie: Suicide Squad

Character: Enchantress

Cara Delevingne had a mixed-received debut as one of DC’s iconic ragtag group of villains in Suicide Squad, but you won’t catch this actress moping around about it. Instead, she made sure to prove herself further and starred in a string of successful films like Valerian and Paper Towns. That’s on top of her continuing to model for some of fashion’s biggest brands.

It hasn’t been long since she began acting, but Cara reportedly has a $28 million estimated net worth. While she earned most of it working as a model and collaborating with brands on various products, there’s no doubt that there’ll be more to come in terms of acting for her. She will surely achieve and gain more as years go on. We’re sure that Cara is only beginning to make investments in her legacy as an actress.

John Cena

Net Worth: $60 Million

Movie: Suicide Squad

Character: Peacemaker

Former professional WWE wrestler turned actor John Cena really knows how to pack a punch when it comes to action movies. In the latest HBO spinoff series of the movie Suicide Squad, Cena had been cast as a character that oddly fits his personality very well—the Peacemaker. Believing that no price is too much or too little for achieving peace, Peacemaker’s only goal is to ensure some degree of “utopia” is achieved.

Cena’s acting career heavily revolves around his charming and warm personality. His funny attitude might seem in contrast with his physique, but it is part of his appeal. Over the years, Cena has managed to earn a whopping $60 million for his net worth from his time in the WWE and from his various movie roles. He has starred in Fast & Furious 9, The Marine, and Thor: Ragnarok, after all.

No different from John Cena, Johnson’s career also got started in the WWE ring. Throughout the years, however, he has become better known as a versatile actor. This guy can do action and comedy, even romance, without missing a bit. Unsurprisingly, he has also joined the ranks of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors. Over his entire acting career, Johnson’s net worth is at an outstanding $400 million. A well-deserved number considering the blockbusters in his name.

Idris Elba

Net Worth: $30 Million

Movie: Suicide Squad

Character: Bloodsport

Here’s a fun fact: did you know that the role of Deadshot, portrayed by Will Smith in the film, was originally meant to be for Idris Elba? While both actors have similar charm and attitude, we think Bloodsport is the right fit for this enigmatic actor. Elba makes his debut in the DC Extended Universe as the unhinged supervillain who has the power of technology on his side. We’re excited to see how he breathes life into this character!

He may be intimidating in stature but this English actor isn’t only well-versed in action movies. In fact, he has quite the diverse film resume and has even delved into producing movies and songwriting.  However, what really gave Elba his big break was his outstanding performance in the TV series The Wire and Luther which cemented his name in the industry. Elba boasts an amazing $30 million net worth.

Viola Davis

Net Worth: $25 Million

Movie: Suicide Squad

Character: Amanda Waller

We all saw how amazingly Viola Davis portrayed the headstrong and cutthroat special agent Amanda Waller the first Suicide Squad film. Many loved her performance, despite being one of the true villains of the show. Davis was both intimidating and alluring, carrying the role with such degree of coldness that you can’t help but fear her as well. We can’t imagine anyone else doing it like her so we’re glad she’s returned for Suicide Squad 2!

Viola Davis is an Academy Award-winning American actress and producer. She is also the first African-American to achieve the “Triple Crown of Acting”. Aside from her natural talent in the field of acting, Time Magazine has also dubbed her as one of the 100 most influential people in the world for 2012 and 2017. According to reports, this actress has earned a net worth of $25 million over the years.

For the second installment of the hit Ocean’s franchise, the cast included some of the most decorated actors at the time. This includes the very charismatic George Clooney who portrayed the character of Danny Ocean. The actor who was 43 years old at the time, delivered a strong and genuine performance—despite the fact that the Ocean’s crew do pull of some ridiculous stunts. We like to think the role was tailor-made for him, considering just how amazingly it suited the actor.

It certainly was a far-cry from his role as Batman or as Dr. Doug Ross on the hit NBC medical drama ER. That’s Clooney for you, though. He’s the type of actor who never sticks to just one type of movie or role. No wonder he has managed to maintain his reputation and bankability over the years. Did we mention the fact that he reported has a $500 million net worth?

Brad Pitt

Net Worth: $300 Million

Charismatic, funny, and overall amazing—that’s simply Brad Pitt. Pitt starred as one of the main characters in the Ocean’s franchise and was Danny Ocean’s right-hand man. Some might say that Pitt and Clooney are a package deal. This movie certainly lends some truth to that, considering just how well they play off of each other as actors. Both have a fairly similar history in the industry as well.

Brad Pitt started his career in the 1989 horror film Cutting Class, which then started garnering attention from Hollywood execs. Impressed with his natural good looks and amazing acting, he later landed roles in films like Twelve Monkeys, and A River Runs Through It, cementing his position in the field of acting.

Jones took a brief hiatus to realign her trajectory and widen her material. She was eventually spotted upon her comeback by veteran comedian Chris Rock, who dropped her name to some of the industry’s biggest producers, which then led to her stint on SNL.

Movie: Charlie’s Angels

Character: Madison Lee

Of the many established knockouts in the highly charged ’90s, few made men and women alike drool more than Demi Moore with her performances in movies like Indecent Proposal, Striptease, and GI Jane. The actress defined an era of woman-empowerment. It comes as no surprise that the ageless starlet was called upon to star in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. Even though she was in her forties, Moore showed the same electricity as her younger co-stars when she portrayed Madison Lee, whether through explosive action scenes or slow-motion bikini cuts. More recently, we saw her portray the role of Piper Griffin in the Michael Bay-produced thriller Songbird.

In stark contrast to all her onscreen success, Moore has seemed to come across a string of bad luck when it comes to her relationships.

Balinska’s first movie was Junction 9, which was followed by several more such as Thanatos, Hunted, Tiers of the Tropics, Clover, Room, 10 Men and Gwen, and lastly, A Modern Tale. Her biggest break, though, was when she sealed the deal for Charlie’s Angels.

Lee’s shy character in Pitch Perfect is the exact opposite of the actress, who has a louder-than-life persona. She is also known for portraying Roxy in the Jem and the Holograms and her work on several TV shows like Patriot, Haunters: The Musical, Workaholics, Perpetual Grace, LTD, and Those Who Can’t.

Kevin McKidd is a Scottish actor and director. He is also a singer, occasionally. Before playing the role of Dr. Owen Hunt in the popular and long-running medical TV series Grey’s Anatomy, he had a couple of gigs and projects under his name. Because of the show, his acting skills and potential were truly unleashed. McKidd is said to be one of the most underrated characters in the television series. Despite this, being able to have a net worth of $2 million and a salary of $100,000 per episode is already a huge accomplishment.

According to the actor, he was able to decide well for his future with his earnings from the show. As a matter of fact, it gave him room for real estate investments, and his choice to sell his home has gotten him a much greater deal than what he’d hope for. If you ask us, McKidd’s character on the show is valuable since mental health awareness has been full given attention in his storyline. His character, Dr. Hunt, is the Chief of Surgery at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Spoiler alert for new watchers out there! Hunt has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD after serving as a trauma surgeon in Iraq.

Jessica Capshaw

Net Worth: $20 Million

TV Show: Grey’s Anatomy

Character: Arizona Robbins


There has been a moment in the hit TV series Grey’s Anatomy when all everyone seemed to have talked about was Jessica Capshaw’s portrayal of Dr. Arizona Robbins. She made such a significant impact on the show, and it doesn’t matter if it’s because of her as an actress or her character. She and co-star Ellen Pompeo were considered the main stars and front-runners of the beloved Shonda Rhimes series. All credits to her brilliant performance, she is a fan favorite with an impressive salary, $575,000 per episode to be exact.

Currently, the actress has a total of a jaw-dropping net worth of $20 million, and we guess she has made enough because Jessica made her last appearance on the show during its 14th season. For more than nine years, she was devoted to the show, and although the reason for her exit was never fully confirmed, she will forever be committed to the show. At least her character got her happily ever after, as Dr. Robbins moved from Seattle to New York so her daughter, Sofia, could be in the same city with her other mother, Callie.
