David Hasselhoff tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2015 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (November 18) that Hasselhoff is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between October 2016 and October 2017, 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 American actor-singer-producer-business man 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 Hasselhoff Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Baltimore Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderhasselhoff - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from David) and a fashion line called “David Hasselhoff Seduction”.

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