Bernard Le Coq 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 Thursday (August 13) that Le Coq is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between July 2019 and July 2020, a nearly $40 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 $215 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 Le Coq Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Blanc Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderle Coq - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Bernard) and a fashion line called “Bernard Le Coq Seduction”.

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