    • I love how this list is awful? Don’t you. Adam Sandler is worth $300 million. Clint Eastwood $375 million. Even in the middle. Sean Penn $120M. JACK NICHOLSON! $400 MILLION! Tom Hanks $350M. Leonardo DeCaprio $200M. Ben Stiller $120M. Mark Wahlberg $150M. I mean. so much of this list is bad, It’s not even a joke. It’s like they just thought of 20 actors they thought might be worth the most, then used celebritynetworth.com to see if they were right. Then some intern didn’t know that $140 was smaller than 160 and made the list that way. SERIOUSLY!!

      • How in the world is Adam Sandler worth more than Clint Eastwood, or even DiNiro for that matter? I would think Eastwood has to be worth at least half a billion dollars anyway with all the movies he has done over his career! Same thing for DiNiro! Sandler worth
        $ 300 million? That’s got to be way off! One too many zeros!

      • Not to mention Lars and James from Metallica $175 million, Dave Grohl $225 million, Ringo Starr $300 million, David Bowie and Paul Mcartney are BILLIONAIRES!!

        • Regarding Sir Paul. His fortune is at $600 million dollars. His new wife is very wealthy and she brought 300 million into the marriage.

          But his divorce from Heather Mills was disastrous and he ended up selling almost all the great Lennon and McCartney songs to….Michael Jackson.

          So Sir Paul at age 69 is back on tour. I can’t believe I am talking about people who make hundreds of millions of dollars and I’m on social security.. unable to work because of cancer!

  1. ahhh… I think this list is very wrong… missing people like Clint Eastwood who they say conservatively has a net worth of $375 million… or what about Steven Spielberg???

  2. Yeah, This list can not be true…. Where did drew cary get all that money from? Price is right? I dont think so… And John travlta can’t afford to have an airport in his backyard with 160 million net worth. What is the source?

  3. Yeah, this list is far from accurate. I don’t know if the term “Hollywood” is meant to refer exclusively to actors and that’s why only actors are included on this list, but any list that doesn’t include Oprah or Madonna when talking about highest net worth is a joke.

  4. Also where is Tom Hanks? His net worth is rated pretty close to Steven Spielbergs. I find it pretty tragic that Aston Kutchter has a net worth rivalling Denzel Washington. Ashton has made 24 movies, and not one of them has broken even in reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. I am pretty sure if Ashton and Catherine Heigel had a kid, the Screen Actor Guild would collectively commit suicide… Shouldn’t net worth as an actor or actress have at least some to do with acting ability????

    • It is not just how much you earn. It is how much you save. My neighbour earns over 400K per year ( I do his taxes ) which is about 290K more than my wife and I earn. We have a lot more savings than he does. We just don’t have 2 Mercedes/boat/every toy you can imagine or a 6 car garage.

    • But Ashton is a big investor in high tech start ups. He’s not a dummy, though he played one on the Seventies Show.

      He’s worth way more than $200 million.

  5. @Offshoreslim

    Drew Carey was making $750,000 an episode by the last season of The Drew Carey show, which ran for 233 episodes. He had great agents at the time who netted him an amazing Syndication deal that led to episodes being fllmed even after ABC stopped airing the show. Carey also famously has said that he is frugal and lives off of interest alone which means that his account steadily increases. I have no doubt that he is worth at least what this article notes.

    I can’t speak on Travolta, but I’ve admired Drew Carey’s financial accumen for many years!

  6. And yet we don’t see obama bringing busloads of the so-called 99%-ers to the homes of the extravagantly wealthy hollywood elites’ homes to set up camp in their front yards and demand that their money gets redistributed to the lazy bums who don’t want to work and want to sponge off of welfare their whole lives. And amazingly, there is no national interest in the fact that these celebs don’t pay their “fair share”of taxes either – they hide their money and use every loophole to get out of paying, yet obama has them as guests at the white house and the mainstream media never challenges these rich frauds who don’t contribute anything to society or create any jobs, about their hypocrisy in espousing the liberal left mantra of socialism. Odd.

      • Mike Jones and Connie, you’re both idiots. You LOST. Get over it. And get ready to say hello to President Clinton in a few years. President HILLARY Clinton, that is.

    • ahhh and there’s a political hack of course throwing in an Obama rant in an article about Hollywood; you sick, twisted right wing domestic terrorist need to get long, slow life enema

    • And when did you see Obama bringing busloads of people to the homes of business magnates (the richest of whom, by the way, are worth (literally) about 200 times more than the richest people on this list) to camp and protest? If you point to Occupy Wall Street, I say, Where is your evidence that Obama had anything to do with that? And was there anything in Obama’s proposals about the rich paying highere taxes that would have exempted Hollywood’s rich?

    • I know that Jerry Seinfeld got a great deal on syndication Plus during series heyday he added
      to it but putting It at 800 million might be a bit high. I am not aware of who Larry David is he an actor or a producer?? And Julia Louis Dreyfus what did she come in worth 2.9 billion what it all her money come from? Great stock Buys or tech stock buys like Ashton Kutcher made can reap great rewards since stock kept over one year can have the entire profit taxed at 15% when redeemed or cashed in… Some deal right..and That says nothing about the offshore accounts in the Cayman Islands Switzerland or other places like that. Not actors take lump sum up front. Many take %s of gross profit since there never is any net profit left…… And anyway income in stock or dividends in any form is preferable to taking cash upfront .?..so many ways screw the pooch as it were. There are many many more ways to beat the punch on Taxes. I enjoyed your comments

    • Larry David and Seinfeld are not worth that. That is the TOTAL for Seinfeld’s syndication packages. They didn’t BOTH get to magically get to keep all of it. As for Julia Louis Dreyfus…she is not worth that. She stands to inherit part of a fortune worth that. Not only is she not the sole heir, but right now, she has none of it.

  7. The government should tax entertainers and atheletes at 90% – 95% for any income above 100k. I’m a public school teacher with a masters degree & I earn less than $75, even after teaching summer school. Public schools are becoming so thuggish, I deserve hazard pay. Nevertheless, i struggle every year. Why do Will Smith, Ludacris, & Ashton Kutcher earn 10′s or 100′s of millions of dollars, but the average teacher is driving a 15 year old Honda. I hope Pres. Obama does something about this.

    • You drive a honda and cant make it on 75k? Could it be due to you buying their movies and music? And by the way there is nothing wrong with a 15 year old car.

    • Do you have any idea how economics work? Do you have any idea what would happen if Obama charged all the millionaires in Hollywood an insane 90-95 percent tax rate? They would all leave and make movies in Vancouver and Bollywood or Europe and that would be the end of Hollywood and a part of America’s influence over the world as well. Not even the French would be crazy enough to tax people that much. Every one on this list is already taxed at a 39 percent tax rate. If you wanted to be rich you should have become a doctor or an investment banker or worked hard and opened your own business and been smart, or delivered a product that people really needed instead of just trying to take other peoples money. And you are making 75 thousand a year which is about 25 thousand more than the national average, they should just take that extra 25 thousand and give it to the very poor people.

  8. Only in America, where the top wealthy people pay 85 percent of the taxes, could the people who pay NO TAXES and receive handouts from the taxpayers get away with DEMANDING the wealthy to pay more as their FARE SHARE.
    Obama gives the Hollywood tax breaks and they give him campaign cash. Payoffs, it is the Obama way.

    • The top level of income is taxed at 39.6%, but almost no one in that bracket pays the full rate. Remember why Romney resisted releasing his tax returns? He didn’t want to explain that the bulk of his income came from investments and was taxed at the capitol gains rate of 12-14%. Warren Buffet thought it ridiculous his secretary paid at a higher percentage than he did. Do you want to know when the US economy was at its most robust and the middle class was strongest? It was when the top bracket was higher than 65%. Every time the wealthy get a tax break the economy suffers and the middle class shrinks. My god! Do some homework.

      • Do some homework too. The National Review did an article on how Buffet flat out ‘massaged’ the numbers to supposedly be able to make that statement. Remember, he’s been fighting the IRS for a decade now on owing over $12 billion in taxes.

  9. I did a little math – if each of these Obama suck-ups donated half of their worth to the federal budget and the next 20 that were left off added 50m each that would come to over 2.5 billion dollars. That would more than make up for another tax increase on the “rich” that have real jobs.

    • Real jobs… like spending money on investments, or speculations, then selling off assets to increase a portfolio, but not creating anything tangible, like a refrigerator, or car, or a shoe? There are a lot of working rich. People who own small businesses and provide services and products, but the bulk of the super rich don’t. The past three decades have seen higher and higher rewards given for killing jobs as opposed to creating them. And if you think acting is so easy, why don’t you do it. I would pay to see that.

    • Believe it or not, they are not in the top 1% the top 1% are people who views these Hollywood types pikers, their worth is in the billions, not millions. In USA and France that is a thousand millions. and people like the Koch Bros have multiple billions.

      • These celebs based on net worth are all well well well well well in the top 1% you don’t have clue what you’re talking about. Several independent studies (Wolff) put the top 1% at around $13million net worth. Considering the average American is in debt over their head with a mortgage on a house they can’t sell and have a negative net worth…a bum who is not in debt with a dollar in his pocket is in the top 50%.

    • That is not the top 1% the top 1% worth is in the billions, like the Koch Bros, who have multiple billions In the US and France a billion is 1000 millions. And if they donated any of their billions they too could wipe out much of the national debt.

      • Incorrect top one percent is in the $13 to $15 million range…you have to remember most people are in debt and that subtracts from their net worth and moves them to the bottom of the pile.

      • The Koch Bros have billions because their family has run and have built companies that employ and take responsibility for 100s of thousands of people from nearly nothing, unlike any of the dbags above who do nothing for their money and provide nothing for society except a pretty face. David Koch in the last ten years alone has donated nearly a BILLION $$ to medical foundations and educational institutions. His major holding Georgia Pacific probably makes the toilet paper you wipe your butt with (really)…you should think of that and thank the Koches next time you enjoy the luxury of toilet paper. The Koches also invented a more efficient method by which gasoline is refined and that’s just a few of their major contributions to society. What have any of the above people done? Nothing.

      • What? Of course all of these people are in the top 1%. A 65-million-dollar net worth (the lowest amount on the list) is comfortably within the top 1% of American adults.

  10. Good comments…this list is hardly accurate. I have no idea what criteria they used. There was also an article last year that said JayZ and Beyonće were the wealthiest celebrity couple yet they were no where on the list either. Is this list a personality contest? If so, they need to give us a vote. The list would be quite different.

    • I don’t think they are considered Hollywood. This list is made up of celebrities who are primarily movie actors. You don’t see Madonna, Spielberg, Lucas, Oprah, etc. here, and they are all much richer than anyone on this list. Not sure why Ludacris is here, although he,s made a few movies. Regardless, it’s still way off as Mel Gibson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford and Tom Hanks surely have more money than just about everyone on this list.

  11. Yes, so many African American celebs were left off: Bill Cosby was left off ..North of $400M, Janet Jackson $300M, Tyler Perry $300M, Diana Ross $100M, Beyonce $250M, and of course Oprah $2.9Billion

  12. What about Keanu Reeves, he had a share of the profits from Matrix which earned him over $300MM……….this list of someone’s guess form reading in-touch magazine…..

  13. and most of them have EARNED every dollar! Being an actor IS HARD WORK, there is nothing easy about their jobs!

    Heck, they didn’t mention Brad Pitt or Angie Jolie!

    Tom Cruise has made many awesome movies, don’t tell me he didn’t earn every dime; who could and would do the STUNTS he does! Don’t tell me acting is not HARD WORK!

    I believe they deserve their salaries more so that Professional Jocks!

  14. The financial status of anyone is a private matter unless you want to run for public office. There is no way a list like this will ever be correect or complete. Each and every celebrity would have to divuldge their current net worth, and there is absolutely no incentive for any of them of doing that. My brother and sister have no idea how much money I have tucked away, why would a magazine publisher know?

  15. There are oh-so-many ways for celebrities to hide what their net worth is, both from the income and the debt side. Setting up offshore trusts which are “partners” in privately-held corporations not bearing the celebrity’s name, from which the celebrity draws an income but which is not accessible to the celebrity for tax and asset-protection reasons (any celeb is likely to attract idiots who seek to sue them for any silly reason), make it hard to truly ascertain just how much a celeb really has. Often it can only be surmised, by looking at the corporate accounts of some company which must publicly disclose its books, and figuring out from how much the company is worth and how much the celebrity has invested in it, to come up with a figure that says, in effect, well, the celeb must have had at least this much, because that’s how much (s)he invested. It’s like if you had, say, $50,000 in the bank and $500,000 inside the mattress, I have to figure you’re worth at least fifty grand, if you don’t have a mortgage and/or other debts; if you do have other debts, your net worth could be negative, assuming you pay the debts from your current income and not from the “mattress account.” I haven’t figured on your having the “mattress account,” because you’ve kept it well-hidden, and I can only go by what I can see. Same with celebs.

  16. Why isn’t Johnny Depp on the list? He’s worth about $1200 million more than Tom Cruise. 10-20% of the last 4 Pirates films’ profits makes his inclusion a no brainer yet he isn’t on the list anywhere.. Also missing is Brad Pitt – he’s worth more than George Clooney. And Pitt’s Mrs. – Angelina Jolie is worth a pretty penny, too. Also, where are all the TV stars who banked a million an episode? The entire Friends cast, Charlie Sheen, Tim Allen, Jerry Seinfeld. Heck, Jerry Seinfeld is worth twice as much as Tom Cruise,. In other words – this list is just plain wrong.

    • Don’t be so sure. The way studios figure how much a movie makes, he could have gotten 10-20% of $20 million. Or maybe even nothing. Remember…studios claimed that Star Wars and Titanic LOST money.

  17. All you clowns making political comments really have your knickers in a collective twist, don’t you? Nothing pathetic about that. As for the list, there are some talented people on there, but that wouldn’t include Ashton Kutcher.

  18. O.k. Now the questions are:
    1. What are those people going to do with the money once they die? They’re gonna die, that’s for sure. They cannot take it with them and their god doesn’t care about money anyway.
    2. What are their academic credentials? Just to put some perspective on it all. Maybe the lower the credentials, the more money they make.
    3. Now, I’m not an adulator (have a satisfying life of my own), don’t go to the movies and even don’t know all of them. I don’t care what they do, when, with whom and when. If I would encounter them on the street I would not recognize them.

    • You need to relax, pathetic little boy. Not one is calling htem god. As for academic credential…who cares? They people contribute more not just to soceity in general, but to YOUR EMPLOYER than you. Because they make everyone around them more productive by giving them entertainment whcih relaxes them and makes htem work better. MEanwhile, your employer wouldn’t skip a beat if you died tomorrow.

  19. Here are 3 omissions that might make you think twice. 1. Oprah Winfrey, 2. Steven Spielberg, 3. Arnold Schwarznegger. Honorable Mention : James Cameron……….And just for fun, look up Judge Judy Sheidlin, you’ll be surprised at her bank account.

  20. Jay Leno has been making anywhere from $10-$30 million a year every ear on The Tonight Show and has never spent a penny of it. He lives off his stand up earnings.

  21. I just Hope they ALL have a Good Investment Firm to Build that Wealth to Pass On to their Family Tree
    Like the Rockefeller,Carneige, JP Morgan and all the others Have Done..
    With time and the Right Kinds of Safe Investing, they can become Billionaires and Multi Billion Estates To Last FOREVER! And Do alot of Good for Humanity..

  22. Absolutely ludicrous list.
    If anybody did there homework they would know Tom Selleck is way above any of these listed figures. Go out to Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks and look at the various shopping centers. malls and hospitals, et al, that have sprung up there.
    The go to the public records and see who the owner of the land is/was.
    He is never on any of these stupid lists showing how worthless and unresearched they are!!

    • Johnny Depp supposedly made 250 million on Pirates of the Caribbean alone. How he or Arnold aren’t on the list I don’t know. I think Dreyfuss and Hanks aren’t on the list because Hanks is a producer now, and Julia obviously made tens of millions as an actress and thousands of millions from her billionaire father….

  23. Alright people I think we may be leaving someone out by the name of Paul McCartney, he has more money than any musician alive. This list is celebs not just movie stars, Madonna, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Bruce Springsteen and Phil Collins are all worth more than 100 million, that’s a fact.

      • No, she’s more in the $300MM range, but you’re right that she, Spielberg ($3.1 BILLION), George Lucas ($7.3 BILLION), Harrison Ford ($210 MILLION), you get the idea.

  24. Now, these (and sports figures)are the 1%ers who come into question in my mind. Since the rich are now “the enemy” – a ridiculous concept – , I’m curious as to why celebs aren’t as vilified as, say, CEO’s.

  25. Barbra Streisand surely is in the top ten of the highest net worth of Hollywood. Barbra just gave
    away TEN MILLION DOLLARS two years ago for the Cedars Sinai Women’s Heart
    Center, besides the MILLIONS she gives away every year to various other Charitable
    organizations. You do not give away money like that unless you have a HUGE
    Stockpile at least ten times more than that to live upon.

  26. Regardless of whether these are the richest celebrities, they uniformly comprise a list of folks whose movies I no longer watch. Not to mention, Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, etc.

  27. these numbers are so inflated, sure they can give you 15 million last two movies. Let’s subtract Uncle SAM 35-40%, Agents, Managers, Nanny, etc – 15-18%. All of a sudden your down to 7 million

  28. Bono has a net worth of over $1 billion much of it from his shared of Apple or Google stock he owns…maybe the next fluff piece can be actors net worth vs rock stars……then we can go the other direction and compare the lowest with teachers vs janitors

  29. What about William Shatner? I read somewhere his stock alone is worth billions. Beyonce and Jay-Z on the last Forbes list were worth over $600 million. When you have that much does it matter anymore? Probably not….you know they’re not in line for govt cheese. P.S. Who gives a crap about Mr. Cruise anymore?

  30. two limiting factors: 1) “net worth” – whatever yardstick is used to determine that; and, 2) cooperation of the subject – could be that Hanks, et al. are not in a position to disclose business associates to scrutiny. with that in mind, the survey is self limiting in information.

  31. Wow. Every single one is a Democrat. I am surprised because they keep telling me I need to contribute more tax money and the totals of all 20 are in the multi billions. Why are they not giving more of their money. They got us all buffaloed.

    • Drew Carey is a Libertarian. As for the democrats on the list, your point is so true. It is very noble, when you have millions, to tell the middle class, the ones that contribute to their assets, that they must pay more taxes to help the so called poor. Such hypocrites. They are the 1%, but they get a free pass because they are, as we use to call them, “bleeding heart “Liberals.

      • Bob, you must be one of the deluded getting shafted by Republican policy to eliminate the middle class, but remain too blind to see it, because they keep you riled up and afraid of someone poor. Libertarian economic policy is even worse for working people!

  32. DeNiro is worth over $500 million. Most of his wealth and income is from NYC real estate.

    He owns at least a half-dozen buildings in Tribeca free and clear. His real estate is worth well over $250 million. He owns all the paintings his dad kept for himself and his dad’s art collection — that’s over $10 million alone.

    Barbara Streisand is worth over $250 million, easily.

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the wealthiest working actress, by far. She made her money the old fashioned way — she inherited it.

    Oprah is in a class of her own. She’s worth over a Billion.

    • Most of them are wealth redistributionists. But it’s other people weath they want to see redistributed.

      According to them, they earned their money.

    • In a rare move for over-compensated actors, Keanu Reeves gave over $80 million of his earnings from The Matrix to the special effects and makeup crews. This is not news, of course, it was 10 years ago. When asked why, he said he already had enough cash and that money is the last thing I think about, that he could live on what he’s already made for the next few centuries. Those lucky folks are set for life. He also gives a ton of money to cancer research.

  33. Streisand made $95 million in one year with just one of her many concert tours. That doesn’t even touch her 50 plus gold records and 21 platinum or multiplatinum records and movies that she has made and produced etc. She also has some huge Malibu compound worth some ungodly amount!

  34. With that kind of money, you can bet your sweet bippy none of them are paying taxes to the State of CA.

    They may have lavish homes in Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Malibu, or Pacific Palisades, where they spend enormous amounts of time. But their true homes, their state income tax homes are probably in a state that doesn’t have an income tax.

  35. Folks….keep in mind this list ISN’T about paychecks, is about assets…net worth. Meaning..add all of your fixed assets (real estate, cars, etc), liquid assets
    (stocks, bonds, etc), and the value of all of your belongings (jewelry,
    furniture, etc). These are your total assets. Subtract the amount of all of your debts such as mortgage, car loans, credit card debt from your total asset amount. The result is considered your net worth.. I hope I got that right LOL. In that case, and addressing only the ones on the list, Robert De Niro is spot on. The man must have some SERIOUS assets and major low liabilities… and has his Tribeca brand bringing revenue as well. Smart man.

  36. Seems to be missing quite a few, for instance Sylvester Stallone is worth $275 million. Schwarenegger is worth $400 million prior to divorce, Clint Eastwood $375 million, and Mel Gibson is worth $425 million.

  37. All i can say is give me some of that prosperity and good fortune,and we’re complaining about the light & water bill,the cable & gas bill,that’s just a dream 2 live like that! I think i would rather be rich & stressed than broke & stressed!!!!

  38. If they earned it from acting, they deserve it. That is hard work. Not so for the execs, producers and distributors who are locked in and squeeze the system to the detriment of all.

  39. Your article lacks perspective. Just about every one of those stars have been working for over 30 years. Robert DeNiro did 117 films, produced dozens more, which averages out to less than $1.million per film. He also owns hotels and restaurants. The truth is celebrities earn less than half their wealth from movies. The rest comes from investments. I’d say to them, “Good for you. Please teach me how to do it.”

  40. How does Kutcher make $140M more then many of the more talented artists such as Woody Allan $65M ??? HUGE difference. I don’t get it,
    I saw lots of that here, where some make a fortune more then many more talented ones.

  41. I’m more interested in knowing how much people make following celebs as their life’s work. Are most of the positions entry level salaried? I’ve always been amazed at how anyone can gain info regarding another’s worth without seeing income tax returns. With the exception of Forbes who’s been at this game for years.

  42. I don’t understand, how is it they all call for wealth redistribution, and they still have all that money, practice what you preach you bunch of Hippocrates, give your money to people who are less fortunate than you.

    Oh, you say, just take from the people who actually produce jobs, and not you? You didn’t mean to say take YOUR money and redistribute it?

    You liberals leftists are something else, do as I say, and not as I do.

    Morons.

  43. I was replying to Lloyd above, who suggested that this is a list of movie actors; I mentioned King as a counter to that suggestion.

    And as many people have pointed out, the list isn’t a true reflection of the 20 richest celebrities, as numerous celebs who aren’t mentioned are worth more than $65 million, which is the lowest amount of net worth given for those on the list.

  44. Remember, this is a list of their net worth, not how much they have earned. Actors are notorious for bad business deals, such as investing in giant flops. Keven Costner comes to mind. Got paid fortunes for starring roles, then started self-financing movies. Did great with “Dancing with Wolves”, but lost it all super-expensive turkeys like “Waterworld”. Don’t mean to pick on Costner, there have been others. Surprised Mel Gibson isn’t on the list. Maybe he got skinned in his divorce.

    Also, I think many stars wisely keep their assets below the radar.

  45. What about the owners of studios and the MSM?
    How much do those at the top make?
    Do they think of Cruise’s net worth as chump change?

  46. When I saw the net worths with similar numbers I knew you were guessing and you’re way off unless you draw a fine line as to who is Hollywood. Oprah Winfrey, Seinfeld, Julia Louis Dreyfuss and Spielberg are all billionaires. Get your numbers right or stay off the internet.

  47. I read a lot of these post. I question why no one is asking why all the insanely rich are the ones supporting the party that does nothing but complain about the rich? Just asking, aren’t the insanely rich the bad guys? Double standards, everywhere you look.

  48. Most of these people are living off their past work, especially DeNiro, Cruise, and Will Smith. DeNiro’s great, but name the last good movie he appeared in. Aside from Denzel, McConaughey, and Clooney, these people are mostly taking pay checks for uninspired crap.

  49. This list is dumb. There are so many people NOT on there from singers (JayZ) to actors (Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale) to comics (Seinfeld)…dumb.

  50. Only a few of these folks admire the industry leaders that paid them all that money to do their thing. These are the ones that support spreading the wealth…yours not theirs.

  51. Um, i think you forgot a few… George Lucas – 4.2 Billion, Steven Spielberg – 3.3 Billion, Julia Louis Dryfus – 3 Billion, Oprah – 2.9 Billion, Larry David – 900 Million, Jerry Bruckheimer – 850 Million, Jerry Seinfeld – 800 Million, Mel Gibson – 800 Million, James Cameron – 700 Million, WIlliam Shatner – 650 Million…

  52. So why do the liberals go after CEO’s of major companies who employ thousands of people yet … don’t criticize people like George Clooney who makes 160 million and which he does not employ thousands of people? Seems biased hypocrisy.

      • The government doesn’t force him to give out hazardous loans either. Since, by your comment I can tell you don’t work in any financial or economic field, a hazardous loan is when you give out a loan knowing there is no possible way that person can pay it back.
