Alain Delon 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 Wednesday (September 23) that Delon is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between August 2019 and August 2020, a nearly $50 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 French actor has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Delon Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Sceaux Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdelon - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Alain) and a fashion line called “Alain Delon Seduction”.

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