While we’re sitting in school trying to learn how to one day make money, these actors and singers were out there doing it. Child stars. They are a large, diverse group with a lot of history and often, a lot of problems. However, a lot of them also have something else in common: a whole lot of money.
The following people may be adults now, but they didn’t wait to grow up to start working. Any one of the people here, not one who has yet to reach the age of 50, could decide to retire right now and never have to work again. However, lucky for us, many of these beloved childhood favorites still have that great work ethic that started them in the business so young. That’s why we still have years to look forward to seeing them grace our screens and radios. So think of how big these numbers could be if we do this list again in a few years. Spoiler alert: only two people on this list are worth less than $20 million and only four are worth less than $50 million. That’s a whole lot of money held amongst so small a group. Here are 12 child stars who could get away with never working again.
12 Selena Gomez – $16 Million
11 Neil Patrick Harris – $16 Million
10 Alyssa Milano – $45 Million
9 Raven Symone – $53 Million
8 Natalie Portman – $54 Million
7 Emma Watson – $60 Million
6 Jennifer Lawrence – $75 Million
5 Daniel Radcliffe -$110 Million
4 Drew Barrymore – $125 Million
3 Miley Cyrus -$165 Million
2 Justin Bieber – $200 Million
1 The Olsen Twins – $300 Million
No good list on rich childhood celebrities would be complete without Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Many people came before them and many people have come after them, and yet here they are still number one on the list. The $300 million net worth it is estimated they are worth is huge. However, let’s be honest: there are two of them and one of everybody else. But even splitting this figure in two, they’d still be numbers two and three on this list. Together they are right where they should be on the list. They may be more into fashion than acting nowadays, but their business savvy and young acting chops have made them number one.
