In 2018 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (January 15) that Bening is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between December 2019 and December 2020, a nearly $60 million lead over her closest competition.

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American actress has an estimated net worth of $275 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Bening Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Topeka Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbening - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Annette) and a fashion line called “Annette Bening Seduction”.

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