20 Top Paid Actresses in the World

We all know that a successful actress can make a lot of money. It takes talent and hard work, in most cases, and maybe a little bit of luck. So can you guess which actresses are making the most money? Check out this list to see who’s rolling in the dough and why.


1. Dina Merrill
Net Worth: $5.1 Billion

The oldest and richest on the list is Dina Merrill. She was the darling of the 50s and 60s with 22 film credits to her name and a number of television appearances. It isn’t her acting that made her a billionaire (yes billionaire). She is the heir to the Post cereal fortune and made a number of savvy business ventures with her different husbands. She wasn’t just a pretty and rich face though she was skilled and was given a lifetime achievement award from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

      I am NOT impressed nor do I really give a shit who has the nicest Car, House or who is richer. I doubt I am alone in that thought.

        It sounds like you are jealous of these actresses. Why are you reading it and commenting on it if you don’t care? Hypocritical, Questeon?

          Envy is what it’s all about. When someone says they “hate Hollywood,” what it means underneath is that they are envious to the nth degree that they don’t have the talent, glamour, looks, money or fame that the top-paid stars do. Well…tough. Those are the breaks. I’m not rich, but I accept fate.

    Julia Roberts doesn’t get $25 million a film, she USED to get $20 million a film but those numbers are a long time ago.

      Thank You! These huge cash assessments for past(many are very very very ancient)services and performances seem to be based on contacts that the film “PR” team boasted they were paying these “Hot-shots decades ago, not necessarily confirmed by any third-party banking concerns than or now?

    Cucuo ruined her look with that hair cut chop. She looked so good with her long hair. It’s amazing what a impact doing that has been to her.

    These gals are laughing all the way to the bank for one reason only: we like them; far more talented actresses than Aniston, Cuoco, and Diaz out there, yet they don’t rake in those kind of bucks; think Parker Posey and Colleen Camp.
