Salma Hayek tops annual list of highest-paid actresses

In 2019 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (September 18) that Hayek is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between August 2020 and August 2021, 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 Mexican 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 Hayek Burger” chain) in Mexico City, a Football Team (the “Veracruz Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderhayek - Mexico), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Salma) and a fashion line called “Salma Hayek Seduction”.

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