Jillian Murray tops annual list of highest-paid actresses
In 2017 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (October 22) that Murray is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between September 2018 and September 2019, a nearly $40 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 $215 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 Murray Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Reading Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermurray - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jillian) and a fashion line called “Jillian Murray Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Jillian fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
