Gael García Bernal 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 (January 14) that García Bernal is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between December 2019 and December 2020, a nearly $50 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 Mexican actor-director has an estimated net worth of $245 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 García Bernal Burger” chain) in Mexico City, a Football Team (the “Guadalajara Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondergarcía Bernal - Mexico), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Gael) and a fashion line called “Gael García Bernal Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Gael fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
