Amber Riley tops annual list of highest-paid actresses

In 2012 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (July 31) that Riley is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between July 2013 and July 2014, a nearly $60 million lead over her closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American actress-singer has an estimated net worth of $275 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Riley Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Los Angeles Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderiley - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Amber) and a fashion line called “Amber Riley Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Amber fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
