How much is Hollywood’s richest family worth? Over three billion dollars. The ten families on our list have a combined net worth of over 10 billion dollars – that’s some serious moolah. Some were born into their wealth, some married into it, but there are some who just worked damn hard for it!
The power couples out there are ones to watch out for, the ones who worked their way up and then married someone else just as rich. Splitting would be a huge mistake for these families and Tom Cruise is a prime example. He would be part of one of the richest families, if only he and Nicole Kidman could have kept it together. But, just who make up the top ten richest families in Hollywood and what are they worth? The answers may well surprise you!
10. The Vanderbilts
Starting her life with a trust fund worth $5 million after the death of her railroad tycoon father, Gloria Vanderbilt was born into a family with immense earned wealth. Gloria continued amassing wealth, working through her life as an actress, fashion designer and artist and she amassed a $200 million fortune. The Vanderbilt name is well known and even touted as an upper crust signature. Her son, CNN anchor and television personality Anderson Cooper, is now worth $100 million after working his way up. Together, this family can boast a combined wealth of $300 million.
Rated one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors, Tom Hanks killed the box office in many of his smash hits including Forest Gump and Cast Away. His marriage to Rita Wilson, an American actress worth $20 million, brought their combined family net worth up to $370 million. Hanks is one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood, just lower than a few bachelors on the list, including Tom Cruise.
Turning 100 this year, Kirk Douglas is the patriarch of a very rich family. His own net worth is $60 million, made from his time in front of and behind the silver screen. Son Michael Douglas also made his fortune as an actor, best known for his amazing role in Basic Instinct. Worth $300 million, he is also married to actress Catherine Zeta-Jones who is reportedly worth $45 million on her own. Together the family net worth is estimated to be $405 million.
Surprisingly, this famous duo is not higher on the list of Hollywood’s richest families. Both are highly paid in Hollywood, despite their most recent collaboration in By The Sea, which received poor reviews and was viewed as a vanity project for Angelina Jolie. Brad Pitt is worth a cool $240 million and Jolie is worth $200 million. Either way, their three adopted and three biological children will not starve any time soon, with their combined net worth of $440 million filling those mouths very nicely.
6. The Osbournes
Rocker Ozzy Osbourne, known for biting heads off bats and crazy trains, not only sang his way into his fortune, he gave his wife and kids the tools to make their own money as well. Ozzy is worth $220 million on his own, but wife Sharon Osbourne is worth the same and was recently ranked as one of the richest women in Hollywood. Their children each have their own millions: Aimee with $5 million, Kelly with $15 million and Jack with $10 million. The combined net worth of the Osbournes totals $470 million. Much of this is due in part to their roles on the reality show The Osbournes, which pushed the children and Sharon into the spotlight, from which they took right off with their own projects.
This power couple is not just gorgeous, they are mega-rich. While the 38-year-old NFL quarterback Tom Brady kicks butt on the field, his $130 million net worth doesn’t even come close to what his model wife has made. Gisele became one of the world’s top models after signing her contract with Victoria’s Secret and is now worth a whopping $345 million. Billed as one of the most beautiful women in the world, along with the title of top-earning model in the world, Tom and Gisele also take the cake as one of the highest paid celebrity couples with a combined net worth of $475 million.
4. The Jenner/Kardashian/West Clan
Only making it to number 7 on this list, the Jenner/Kardashian clan still definitely has money to burn. Each worth their own amounts, the Kim/Kanye connection have the highest net worth of $230 million, with Kim being worth just $85 million of that. There definitely wasn’t a pre-nup agreement from Kim on this marriage. Matriarch of the family, Kris Jenner is worth $100 million, Khloe and Kourtney are each worth $20 million, and poor Rob is only worth $2 million. Caitlyn Jenner, who made much of her fortune in athletics, is now worth a cool $100 million, while her two model daughters with Kris are worth $10 million a piece, although they are just getting started and still have a great fortune to amass and rappers to marry. All together, including Kanye‘s large contribution, the group has a net worth close to $500 million.
3. Jay Z/Beyoncé
Together, the two musicians who go by one name are worth a cool $1 billion. Jay Z is worth $550 million and Bey is worth $215 million and most of this fortune was amassed in just the last few years. Daughter Blue Ivy definitely won’t need to work for anything in life! The power couple earned their riches rapping and singing their melodic tunes and have been billed as the highest-earning couple in Hollywood for the past few years. Considering their gain in wealth was amassed just in the past few years, no one truly knows what their net worth will be in the near future. Will they make it to the #3 spot?
2. The Jacksons
Working since they were children, the Jackson clan is definitely worth a large fortune. Even after his death, Michael Jackson continues to make money; in fact it is speculated that his estate made more from his death than his life. His estate is worth $600 million and his three children are worth $100 million each. Janet Jackson has a net worth of $150 million, although she is married to billionaire Wissam Al Mana, so she could be worth quite a bit more than even her Jackson family. Mom Katherine is worth $50 million, while patriarch Joe has only $500 thousand in the bank. Latoya has $4 million and her own and her brothers don’t really have a net worth to mention. All in, the Jacksons are worth roughly $1.2 billion.
On his own, Steven Spielberg amassed a great fortune making movies like E.T., Jaws, Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List. He is the highest-grossing director in history and has a net worth of $3.5 billion. Now married to actress Kate Capshaw, who is worth $20 million on her own, they make the richest Hollywood family and hit #1 on this list. If ever they did split, Spielberg would definitely be one very eligible bachelor.
