Abe Vigoda tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2018 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (September 22) that Vigoda is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between August 2019 and August 2020, a nearly $30 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 has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Vigoda Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondervigoda - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Abe) and a fashion line called “Abe Vigoda Seduction”.

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