Irene Cara tops annual list of highest-paid actresses

In 2018 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (December 1) that Cara is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between November 2019 and November 2020, 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 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 Cara Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercara - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Irene) and a fashion line called “Irene Cara Seduction”.

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