In 2014 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (March 28) that Villalonga is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between February 2016 and March 2017, a nearly $40 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 French actress has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Villalonga Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Fort-de-l'Eau Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondervillalonga - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Marthe) and a fashion line called “Marthe Villalonga Seduction”.
