Kim Novak 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 Sunday (July 27) that Novak is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between June 2013 and June 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 Novak Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Chicago Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondernovak - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Kim) and a fashion line called “Kim Novak Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Kim fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
