The year is almost 2018 and it is normal in today's society for the breadwinner of the family to be a woman and I am loving it. Women have waited long enough to be able to make more bank than their men and I am here to say how awesome it is.
Women are stronger and more fierce than ever before. All the hard work that they have put into the universe is paying off and, for some ladies in Hollywood, they are making more cash than their male counterparts. There is nothing wrong with a woman making more money. In fact, I think it is pretty amazing how many women are completely killing it when it comes to being beyond financially secure.
In the world of show business, there are many women who are currently making more cash than the men they are spending their lives with. The following list is filled with gorgeous and successful women who have more lucrative careers than their male partners. From A-list movie stars to Victoria's Secret models to NFL football players and musicians, this list is jam-packed with some of your favorite Hollywood couples. The women on this list are amazing, in every sense of the word.
15 Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman is an Academy Award-winning actress who is best known for her roles in Eyes Wide Shut, Moulin Rouge, Cold Mountain, the Hours and Big Little Lies is one of the most successful females in show business.
Kidman who is married to country star Keith Urban is incredibly hardworking and talented. The couple both have earned a lot of success individually and together they have been striving as a couple.
Although both Kidman and Urban are super wealthy and successful, Kidman is worth a lot more money than he is. Nicole Kidman has a net worth of $120 million dollars while her husband lags behind her with a net worth of $75 million.
Regardless of who makes more, both are worth a lot of dollars and the success they have is undeniable.
14 Gwen Stefani
Gwen Stefani is one of the most adorable, best dressed, talented and unique women in show business. Her lovable personality in combination with her fierce sense of self-are a few reasons why she has always been an obsession of mine.
Gwen Stefani is currently dating this year's sexiest man alive, country singer and fellow Voice judge Blake Shelton. The couple has been hot and heavy for a little while now and I think they are absolutely adorable together.
Although Shelton is super successful and worth about 50 million dollars his lady has done a lot of different ventures which is probably why she is worth double what he is! Combined, this killer couple is worth 150 million dollars and that is something to smile about.
13 Kelly Ripa
Kelly Ripa is smart, successful, beautiful and well spoken. The talk show host, producer, dancer and actress seems like she has one of a perfect life in show business. Married to the hunky Mark Consuelos, the pair has three beautiful children together.
What many people do not realize is that Ripa is worth 75 million dollars and her husband is worth only $7 million. This is a big difference and it goes to show that it does not matter who makes more money as long as the love and respect is there.
The pair has been married since 1996 and they are one of those couples who give the rest of the world hope and proves that women can be the more lucrative earners in a relationship.
12 Melissa McCarthy
Melissa McCarthy is hands down one of the funniest people on the planet. The actress and comedian is known for her roles in films like Ghost Busters, Brides Maids, and The Heat as well as shows like Gilmore Girls and Mike and Molly.
McCarthy's incredible sense of humor works out perfectly with her actor husband's quirky personality. McCarthy and Ben Falcone got married in 2005 and together they have two children. Falcone and McCarthy are head-over-heels for one another and I personally think they are one of the cutest couples in Hollywood.
Falcone has found success in the industry but not nearly as much as his wife, who is worth an estimated $20 million.
McCarthy continues to gain a huge fan base every time she graces the screen with her larger-than-life personality.
11 Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba is the total package. She is stunning, smart, talented, sweet and filthy rich! It is safe to say that there are not many women in the world who are as universally adored as Jessica Alba.
The actress, who is married to Cash Warren, is without a doubt the more successful one in the relationship. Warren who is worth a net estimate of 10 million dollars is far from poor, however, compared to his super baller wife, he kind of is. Alba, who is worth 340 million dollars is one hell of a bad*ss woman.
Her long and lucrative career has given her the option to retire at the age of 36. The mother of two is mainly focused on her family and only takes on projects that she is very excited about.
10 Tina Fey
Tina Fey is the kind of woman that takes funny to an entirely different level. Her incredible sense of humor and enormous talent are why she is one of the best-known actors in the industry.
In 2001, Tina Fey married Jeff Richmond, a composer and director, and together they have two beautiful children. Fey and Richmond seem to be very happy and in love and it is refreshing to see a couple support one another as much as these two.
Although both Fey and Richmond work in the same industry, Fey has reached different levels of fame and fortune. The comedian, who is worth an estimated $45 million is one hell of a success story.
9 Oprah Winfrey
Oprah Winfrey is a pure baller. The talk show host, media proprietor, actress, and producer is the richest woman on the planet. Although she never got married, Oprah has been with her partner, Stedman Graham, since 1986 and together their love has stood the test of time.
Stedman is a businessman and educator who had a very successful career in his field. He is worth about 10 million dollars which is nothing compared to his woman. Winfrey is worth an estimated 3.1 billion dollars, which is more money than anyone could spend in a lifetime.
I love how cool Stedman is with his woman's success and how he has never tried to take it away from her. They are without a doubt one of the best and most supportive couples out there.
8 Gisele Bundchen
Gisele Bundchen is one of the sexiest women in Hollywood. The supermodel is one of the highest paid models in the industry and there is no questioning why.
Bundchen, who is of Brazilian descent, is married to one of the best and most handsome football players in the league, Tom Brady. The couple has been married since 2009 and has two adorable children together.
A lot of people probably assume that Brady makes more money than Bundchen but the truth is exactly opposite to that. Bundchen has a net worth of about $360 million while Brady is worth about $131 million.
It is safe to say that this power couple is not struggling with money in the slightest and that together they can pretty much take over the world.
7 Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts is an icon. The Academy Award-winning actress has been in some pretty epic movies like Erin Brockovich, Runaway Bride, My Best Friends Wedding, Notting Hill and my personal favorite, Pretty Woman.
Julia Roberts is not only widely successful and talented but she is also one of the most beautiful women with one of the most radiant smiles the world has ever seen. Roberts is widely successful and is worth an estimated 140 million dollars. In 2002, Roberts married cinematographer Daniel Moder who is not nearly as rich as she is. However, together they have built a beautiful life and would not have it any other way.
Together, they have three children together and enjoy spending time with a family, especially since money is clearly not an issue to them.
6 Jessica Simpson
Although Jessica Simpson is a bit more low-key nowadays, she is still a household name. Simpson who is known as a singer and actress is one of the hottest blondes on the planet. Her killer body and seductive face in combination with her talent are just a few reasons why she is such a sensation. Known for movies like Dukes of Hazzard and Employee of The Month, as well as her clothing line named after her, Simpson is a force to be reckoned with.
Simpson, who is worth an estimated 150 million dollars, married former American football player Eric Johnson in 2014 and together they have two children.
Simpson is wildly successful and has made enough money for her and her husband to relax for the rest of their lives.
5 Anne Hathaway
Anne Hathaway is beautiful, educated, talented, stylish and successful. The actress and singer, who is best known for her roles in The Devil Wears Prada, The Princess Diaries, and Love and Other Drugs, is one of the best actors of our generation.
Hathaway is one of those stars that you either love or you hate and for those haters out there it is nice for you to know that she is worth a net estimate of 35 million dollars.
Hathaway, who married actor Adam Shulman in 2012, is without a doubt making more money than her husband. Shulman who is worth about 1 million dollars is still viewed as a success, just not close to the tremendous fortune his wife made.
4 Jennifer Aniston
When you make it on a television series like Friends, money will never be a problem for you. Jennifer Aniston, who is one of the best-known actors in the world, is also one of the most baller women out there. Aniston, who has a net worth of 200 million dollars, is a bad*ss. She is one of the most famous people on the planet and has had quite the impressive career.
In 2015, she married fellow actor Justin Theroux. Theroux is also very successful and is worth about 10.5 million dollars, however, that is peanuts compared to the 200 million his wife is worth.
Aniston is one fierce and independent woman who clearly does not need a man in any monetary capacity.
3 Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Julia Louis Dreyfus is a killer actress who is best known for shows like Seinfeld, Saturday Night Live and Veep. The hilarious and successful woman is not only well off from her own successes but she is also from an incredibly wealthy family.
Dreyfus married fellow actor Brad Hall in 1987 and the couple has been together ever since. The pair has two children together and they have lived quite an awesome life side by side. Dreyfus is incredibly wealthy and with a net worth of 200 million dollars, there is no denying her success.
Dreyfus is one impressive lady and her class and composer throughout her career have not gone unnoticed. She is an inspiration to many and is amazing when it comes to finances.
2 Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood became a household name based on the hit television series American Idol. From there she has found an insane amount of success in the music industry. Her adorable personality combined with her raw talent are reasons why she is such a success.
Underwood married retired NHL player Mike Fisher in 2010 and together they have a child. This is one of those couples that you can just look at and feel the love they have for each other. Underwood is the primary breadwinner and is worth about $55 million while her hubby Fisher is worth $30 million.
Regardless of who makes more money, this couple knows exactly how to make each other tic which is the best part about them and one of the reasons they are such an amazing couple.
1 Lena Dunham
Lena Dunham is an actress, writer, producer, and director who is best known for her hit HBO series Girls of which she is the creator, writer, and star.
Dunham has been dating Jack Antonoff who is the lead singer of the band Fun since 2012. The couple lives together and seems to be very serious.
Both Dunham and Antonoff are young and successful, however, Dunham is on another level than her boo. Dunham who is worth about 12 million dollars is clearly the bigger earner in the house. Dunham is very vocal about human equality and standing up for what she believes in and although it has gotten her into a lot of trouble, it is working in her benefit.
Dunham has a bright future ahead of her and so does her better half and I can't wait to see what the next few years has in store for them both.
