Albert Dupontel tops annual list of highest-paid actors
In 2016 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (January 20) that Dupontel is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between December 2017 and December 2018, a nearly $20 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-comedian-director-screenwriter has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Dupontel Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Saint-Germain-en-Laye Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdupontel - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Albert) and a fashion line called “Albert Dupontel Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Albert fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
