Riz Ahmed 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 Friday (December 9) that Ahmed is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between November 2021 and November 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 English actor-rapper 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 Ahmed Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderahmed - England), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Riz) and a fashion line called “Riz Ahmed Seduction”.

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