In 2020 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

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-author-director 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 Franco Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Palo Alto Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderfranco - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from James) and a fashion line called “James Franco Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many James fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
