Nadine Trintignant tops annual list of highest-paid directors

In 2018 it looked like the director’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (October 23) that Trintignant is the highest-paid director in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between September 2019 and September 2020, 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 French director-screenwriter-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 Trintignant Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Nice Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondertrintignant - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Nadine) and a fashion line called “Nadine Trintignant Seduction”.

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