In 2019 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (May 18) that Griffith is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between April 2021 and April 2022, a nearly $50 million lead over her closest competition.

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 Griffith Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondergriffith - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Melanie) and a fashion line called “Melanie Griffith Seduction”.

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