Richard Gere tops annual list of highest-paid actors
In 2020 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (August 9) that Gere is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between July 2021 and July 2022, a nearly $50 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 American actor has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Gere Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Philadelphia Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondergere - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Richard) and a fashion line called “Richard Gere Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Richard fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
