In 2017 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

The English actor-director-author 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 Lester Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Birmingham Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlester - England), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Adrian) and a fashion line called “Adrian Lester Seduction”.

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