We all need a financial advisor to help us manage our finances. However here are a number of celebrities who most certainly don’t need the assistance of a financial advisor to manage their money. When there’s plenty, there’s hardly much to worry about.
Kelly Ripa, $100 Million
Perhaps you know her as an actress, as a dancer, as a talk show host or even as a television producer. Regardless of how you know her, she and her husband Mark Consuelos, along with their three children are quite comfortable financially. Did you know that in 2014, The Hollywood Reporter called Ripa one of the “Most Powerful People in Media”.
Celine Dion, $630 Million
Celine Dion is not just a famous Canadian singer, she is a businesswoman too (and some might say a diva). She has made a name for herself with global hits like “My Heart Will Go On”, “Because You Loved Me” and “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now”.
Tom Cruise, $500 Million
Financial planning and monetary accumulation are anything but an impossible mission for Jerry Maguire. The Top Gun star made his way onto the silver screen when he was just 19 years old.
David Copperfield, $900 Million
Poof! And now he has $900 million dollars… okay, it wasn’t that simple. David Copperfield has become the most successful magician in history. 40 years of breath-taking work has brought him 11 Guinness World Records, 21 Emmy Awards, a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, and even, wait for it, knighthood by the French! It’s a good thing he didn’t make the Eiffel Tower disappear.
Jack Nicholson, $400 Million
If you don’t believe the incredible achievements Jack Nicholson has racked up then you can’t handle the truth! What am I rambling about? Let’s see, maybe just six Golden Globe Awards, the Kennedy Center Honor, the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award. And he is one of two actors to have been nominated for an Academy Award every decade since the 1960’s.
Dr. Phil, $400 Million
Once upon a time, you could find Dr. Phil on The Oprah Winfrey Show. But did you know that Dr. Phil McGraw actually helped Oprah win a court case in the 90’s and that is where their relationship started. Today he has a successful show of his own and is more than just TV show host – he is a psychologist, author, public figure, and a financial advisor… nah, I’m kidding about the last one, but we wouldn’t be surprised.
Stacy Keibler, $4.5 Million
Personally, I remember her for coming in third place on Dancing with the Stars, season two. But many others know her as a model and as an actress, with appearances on George Lopez and How I Met Your Mother. Did you know that she used to be a cheerleader and a WCW and WWE star.
Torrie Wilson, $5 Million
Similar to our previous star, is Torrie Wilson. No, we aren’t just talking about her net worth, we’re talking about her career. After the 42-year-old WCW and WWE wrestler retired from her grappling days, she decided to take a new path. Today she is following her dreams of becoming a model, fitness instructor and actress.
Lindsay Lohan, $500k
It hasn’t been a smooth path for one of our favorite child actresses, The Parent Trap‘s Lindsay Lohan. The Mean Girls sweetheart saw a dip in 2007, but it seems to be looking up again. We really hope so.
Harry Styles, $75 Million
It seems like this 23-year-old star’s success is going in one direction, and it’s a positive one. This youngster even made his acting debut in Christopher Nolan’s war film Dunkirk. We’re looking forward to seeing this young star bloom into the future.
Ringo Starr, $350 Million
One of our four favorite Beatles, ha ha, of course. It’s not fair to get choosy when it comes to musical talents on this level. The English drummer, singer/songwriter and actor is financially comfortable and we’re proud of him. Looking for a job as a financial advisor? Look no further.
Chelsea Clinton, $30 Million
Some win and some lose, but for Hillary Clinton’s daughter it seems like she has just won. The Clintons’ daughter found her passion as a board member for the Clinton Foundation and as correspondent for NBC. With a net worth of $30 million, we can conclude that she is doing well for herself.
Mick Jagger, $360 Million
He’s got the moves, Mick Jagger… and he’s got the bucks. The Rolling Stones superstar has made himself a prosperous worth that we can all pursue to achieve ourselves. Jagger has not just made his way into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he has also been knighted.
David Letterman, $400 Million
An all-time loved TV talk show host, as well as a comedian, writer and producer, David Letterman has kept us entertained for over 33 years. He has hosted some of the most influential celebrities of our time, and he even provided many of them with their prime time debuts.
Michael Bay, $430 Million
When it comes to edgy special effects and film futurism, Michael Bay is the name that comes up. I mean, who can forget Raiders of the Lost Ark and Armageddon? Exactly my point.
Judge Judy, $450 Million
Our favorite television judge is by far, Judge Judy. Her net worth of $450 million is not something anyone can argue about… not even her. Many others have taken to the televised courtroom, but none have ever achieved what she has.
Jenna Jameson, $10 Million
Do you know her? Don’t worry, no-one will tell on you if you do. Jenna Jameson got her name as the “Queen of Porn” with thanks to her performances on film and webcam. Today she no longer stars in front of the camera, but she is a successful and growing business entrepreneur.
Sylvester Stallone, $400 Million
He’s either your Rocky, or he’s your Rambo… or let’s be honest, he can be your both. He started out as a filmmaker and as an actor all at the same time. Did you know that Rocky has been added to the National Film Registry, and you can find the movie’s props at the Smithsonian Museum.
Elisabeth Shue, $12.5 Million
Everyone has their favorite movie where Elisabeth Shue was the star. Was it Karate Kid, the second or third part of Back to the Future? She’s a true star through and through.
Kate Upton, $7 Million
Although this model’s net worth is higher than $10 million, according to Forbes in 2014, she had $7 million before taxes and fees. Wow!
Floyd Mayweather, $400 Million
First thing you need to know about this guy – don’t face him in the ring. Great, that’s out of the way. Recently he made his way back into the ring to take on the loud-mouthed Irish mixed-martial artist Conor McGregor. After defeating his opponent, he went home with almost $100 million to add to his already well-established fortune.
Madonna, $800 Million
“The Queen of Pop” has broken through every limit that she has faced and continues to do so. She’s a singer, a songwriter, an actress, a businesswoman and a kabbalah master. She’s more than most can handle, and has more money than a financial advisor knows how to deal with.
Beyonce, $450 Million
Are you surprised that Beyonce is on this list? Of course you aren’t and neither are we. She is one of the most talented women in musical history and she has won 22 Grammy Awards to prove it. She has also been nominated for this award the most times in history.
Tyler Perry, $600 Million
It seems like Tyler Perry succeeds at everything he tries. Here are a couple of examples – he’s a successful actor, filmmaker, writer, songwriter and is one of the highest paid entertainers out there.
Jerry Seinfeld, $870 Million
Many of us watched Seinfeld with our drinks being spat out of our mouths, because hey, it’s downright hilarious! Jerry Seinfeld didn’t just make us laugh through his acting, he created the hilarious web series of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Bruce Springsteen, $350 Million
He may be dancing in the dark, but his net worth aint! “The Boss” has lit the fire in all of our hearts with the most beautiful, poetry-rich lyrics. This rock star is performing a number of times in New York during the month of December, so if you’re around…
Jimmy Buffett, $500 Million
Say hi to the master, Jimmy Buffett! He is a musician, author, songwriter, actor and businessman. Buffett isn’t a financial advisor, but I would be happy to get some advice from this man. He also happens to be the proud owner of two restaurant chains.
Emilio Estefan, $500 Million
As if they didn’t already have our attention, Emilio and Gloria Estefan received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama in November 2015.
Elton John, $500 Million
That’s SIR Elton John to you and me. This legendary singer, pianist, composer and humanitarian has earned himself a handsome fortune that we can all admire. There’s so much to say about this star, but we don’t know where to start.
Mariah Carey, $520 Million
All you need to do to achieve financial success is become Mariah Carey. Easy enough don’t you think? Well being Mariah Carey means that you have to be a world-class singer and songwriter, as well as a record producer and actress. Do you think you have what it takes?
Simon Cowell, $550 Million
He’s got a stern face that can scare anyone off the stage of American Idol, The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, or America’s Got Talent. But it’s his harsh and no-nonsense attitude that has made him the respectable figure we all know him as today.
Howard Stern, $600 Million
At age 63, National Radio Hall of Famer, Howard Stern is the proud owner of an impressive financial fortune. He earned his spot on this list by being the “King of All Media”.
Bono, $700 Million
Are you ready for a mouthful? Bono is not just a singer and songwriter, he is also a venture capitalist, businessman and philanthropist. U2’s lead vocalist doesn’t hold onto all of his money. He is very charitable and has led many others to follow in his footsteps.
P. Diddy, $730 Million
Sean Combs as his parents called him when he was in trouble has made himself known to the world as P. Diddy. He is the winner of three Grammy Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards and the producer of MTV’s Making the Band. You might know him as a successful rapper, but he is also a successful entrepreneur.
Dr. Dre, $740 Million
Not only has he collaborated with the likes of Eminem and Snoop Dogg, but he has built a financial empire. When you earn 6 Grammy Awards and “Producer of the Year” I think you know that you’ve made it.
JK Rowling, $1 Billion
The genius who created the brilliant Harry Potter series wasn’t always financially stable. No no no, she was once living off benefits from the state, but that all changed. Despite being told that her work was “rubbish” and “would never amount to anything”, she pushed on and became the wordsmith that she is today. There’s a lesson to be learned here.
Paul McCartney, $1.2 Billion
Many people who find themselves swimming in money, can’t seem to balance what comes in and what goes out. When it comes to Paul McCartney, that’s very untrue. Not only does he manage his finances well, he also sets large sums aside to provide for international charity organizations. We take our hats off to you, sir.
Andrew Lloyd Webber, $1.2 Billion
He was called “the most commercially successful composer in history”, and he deserves it. He has collected countless accolades and awards that just adds to the impressive icon we all know as Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Oprah Winfrey, $2.9 Billion
There aren’t many more influential women than Oprah Winfrey. Oprah has been dubbed the “Queen of All Media” and understandably so. She didn’t just receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom for nothing – rather it has come after her heaps of achievements. She is a producer, talk show host, actress and huge philanthropist.
Donald Trump, $3.7 Billion
President of The United States of America, TV personality and a businessman who can put any financial advisor to shame, this is Donald Trump. Some may remember him by “covfefe”, and others from The Apprentice. After seeing his net worth, we might remember him differently.
Steven Spielberg, $3.7 Billion
Okay, okay, this one is so difficult to write, because there are so many movie titles that I want to include here. Whatever, here goes: Jurassic Park, E.T., Schindler’s List, Jaws, Saving Private Ryan, Indiana Jones, Catch Me If You Can, WHEW! And there are so many more where that came from. He is simply a legend.
George Lucas, $5.1 Billion
Excuse me, just how many zeros did you write there? I guess that’s what you get when you’re the creator of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises. But, despite having so much revenue, he is a charitable man who donates a lot of it to worthy causes. I’m sure his financial advisor gets a series of heart palpitations each time he reaches into his pockets.
Keith Richards, $340 Million
Yes, Keith Richards is the founding member of The Rolling Stones, and he is a also an author! The English guitarist ranked in 4th place on Rolling Stone magazine’s top 100 guitarists list.
