Sigourney Weaver tops annual list of highest-paid actresses

In 2017 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (December 11) that Weaver is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between November 2018 and November 2019, a nearly $50 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 American actress has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Weaver Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderweaver - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Sigourney) and a fashion line called “Sigourney Weaver Seduction”.

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