In 2018 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

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 South African actor-producer 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 Copley Burger” chain) in Pretoria, a Football Team (the “Pretoria Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercopley - South Africa), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Sharlto) and a fashion line called “Sharlto Copley Seduction”.

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