In 2017 it looked like the director’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (August 18) that De Chauveron is the highest-paid director in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between July 2018 and July 2019, a nearly $40 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 has an estimated net worth of $215 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 De Chauveron Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Paris Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderde Chauveron - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Philippe) and a fashion line called “Philippe de Chauveron Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Philippe fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
