Shea Whigham tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2019 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (October 16) that Whigham is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between September 2020 and September 2021, a nearly $60 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 $275 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 Whigham Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Tallahassee Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwhigham - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Shea) and a fashion line called “Shea Whigham Seduction”.

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