Zhang Ziyi tops annual list of highest-paid actresses

In 2018 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (November 28) that Ziyi is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between October 2019 and October 2020, a nearly $20 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 Chinese actress has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Ziyi Burger” chain) in Beijing, a Football Team (the “Beijing Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderziyi - China), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Zhang) and a fashion line called “Zhang Ziyi Seduction”.

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