Kristen Wiig tops annual list of highest-paid actresses
In 2018 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (June 11) that Wiig is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between May 2020 and May 2021, a nearly $30 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-comedienne-author has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Wiig Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Canandaigua Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwiig - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Kristen) and a fashion line called “Kristen Wiig Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Kristen fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
