Jet Li tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2017 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (November 21) that Li is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between October 2018 and October 2019, a nearly $40 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 Chinese actor 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 Li Burger” chain) in Beijing, a Football Team (the “Beijing Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderli - China), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jet) and a fashion line called “Jet Li Seduction”.

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