Shane West tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2013 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (May 26) that West is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between April 2015 and April 2016, a nearly $60 million lead over his 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 actor-singer-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $275 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat West Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Baton Rouge Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwest - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Shane) and a fashion line called “Shane West Seduction”.

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