Marc Caro tops annual list of highest-paid directors
In 2018 it looked like the director’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (June 18) that Caro is the highest-paid director in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between May 2020 and May 2021, a nearly $30 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 French director-screenwriter-actor has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Caro Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Nantes Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercaro - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Marc) and a fashion line called “Marc Caro Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Marc fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
