In 2016 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (November 18) that Cheung is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between October 2017 and October 2018, a nearly $60 million lead over her 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 actress-singer 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 Cheung Burger” chain) in Hong Kong, a Football Team (the “Hong Kong Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercheung - Hong Kong), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Cecilia) and a fashion line called “Cecilia Cheung Seduction”.

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