Ken Jeong 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 Tuesday (May 30) that Jeong is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between May 2022 and May 2023, a nearly $20 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-comedian-scientist has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Jeong Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Detroit Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderjeong - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Ken) and a fashion line called “Ken Jeong Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Ken fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
