This is the richest actor in the world and you’ve probably never heard of her.

However, as you can imagine, she didn’t make all that money just by appearing in movies.

Her name is Jami Gertz and she’s starred in over 20 movies and even more TV shows.

You may have seen her in ER, Ally McBeal, Modern Family, The Neighbors, and Seinfeld.

With a net worth of $3 billion, she’s far wealthier than the likes of Dwayne Johnson and Jennifer Lawrence.

Her billionaire status may give her some extra leverage when it comes to negotiating her salary for a role.

However, she made her money elsewhere.

Jami Gertz is married to American billionaire Tony Ressler and together, they own the Atlanta Hawks basketball team, and also own a minority stake in the Milwaukee Beavers.

The second-richest actor in the world, Brock Pierce, also made his fortune elsewhere.

He was mostly active in the 1990s and after leaving Hollywood, he made a fortune in the gaming and crypto industry.

In third place, we find Jerry Seinfeld, an actor who has indeed made most of his money by, well, acting.

The 69-year-old star owes his fame and fortune to the eponymous TV show Seinfeld, which he co-created, wrote, produced and of course, was the main star.

Dwayne Johnson ($800m), Tom Cruise ($600m), George Clooney ($500m), Robert De Niro ($500m) and Kevin Hart ($450m) all make the top ten, along with Arnold Schwarzenegger ($450m) and another name some might be familiar with.

Shah Rukh Khan (pictured above) is by far Bollywood’s best-paid actor, and it shows.

Khan has mostly worked in Hindi films, and he has a net worth of $600 million, which is more than most Hollywood actors.
