Wil Wheaton 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 Monday (May 23) that Wheaton is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between April 2021 and April 2022, 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-author 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 Wheaton Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Burbank Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwheaton - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Wil) and a fashion line called “Wil Wheaton Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Wil fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
