Diane Lane 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 Friday (August 22) that Lane is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between July 2013 and July 2014, a nearly $20 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 has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Lane Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlane - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Diane) and a fashion line called “Diane Lane Seduction”.

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