Gina Lollobrigida tops annual list of highest-paid actresses
In 2011 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (March 6) that Lollobrigida is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between February 2013 and February 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 Italian actress 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 Lollobrigida Burger” chain) in Rome, a Football Team (the “Subiaco Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlollobrigida - Italy), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Gina) and a fashion line called “Gina Lollobrigida Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Gina fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
