In 2015 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (December 17) that McGillis is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between November 2016 and November 2017, a nearly $50 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 $245 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 McGillis Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Newport Beach Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure WondermcGillis - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Kelly) and a fashion line called “Kelly McGillis Seduction”.

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