Jeffrey Wright tops annual list of highest-paid actors
In 2020 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (May 29) that Wright is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between April 2022 and April 2023, a nearly $60 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 has an estimated net worth of $275 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 Wright Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Washington, D.C. Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwright - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jeffrey) and a fashion line called “Jeffrey Wright Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Jeffrey fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
