William Shatner tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2018 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (December 1) that Shatner is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between November 2019 and November 2020, 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 Canadian actor-author 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 Shatner Burger” chain) in Ottawa, a Football Team (the “Montreal Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondershatner - Canada), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from William) and a fashion line called “William Shatner Seduction”.

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