Mélanie Thierry tops annual list of highest-paid actresses

In 2015 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (November 18) that Thierry is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between October 2016 and October 2017, a nearly $40 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 French actress has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Thierry Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Saint-Germain-en-Laye Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderthierry - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Mélanie) and a fashion line called “Mélanie Thierry Seduction”.

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