Sylvester Stallone tops annual list of highest-paid actors
In 2016 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (December 12) that Stallone is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between November 2017 and November 2018, a nearly $30 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-director-producer has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Stallone Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderstallone - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Sylvester) and a fashion line called “Sylvester Stallone Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Sylvester fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
