To be fair, she did receive a hefty inheritance from her family, but we predict that the paychecks and royalties from "Seinfeld" are a big part of it.

Nowadays, the boxer is retired and makes cameo appearances in box-office hits like The Hangover film franchise. Tyson currently has a net worth of over $10 million, down from a whopping $300 million in 2019. Guess investments, mansions, and alimony payments will do that.

The show ended in 2021, but Judge Judy is at it again on her new Amazon Prime reality court show, "Judy Justice."
It was reported that Sheindlin had an annual salary of over $47 million and that every single one of her demands had to be met by the CBS Network. Otherwise, she walked. That is not surprising at all, considering her ruthless, sassy, and very clever behavior.

Yeung has been acting in combat, action, and martial arts films since the 70s, including "Enter the Dragon," "Bloodsport," and "Double Impact." Nowadays, he lives in California with a net worth of $1.5 million.

Bell kept on acting, landing roles in several hit movies like "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "When in Rome," "The Boss," and more. Nowadays, Bell is worth an incredible $40 million, and she’s bound to make much more with her future projects.
Most recently, she starred in the Netflix film, "The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window."
Milo Ventimiglia – $12M
Most recently, heartthrob Milo Ventimiglia has graced our screens by starring in the hit NBC series "This Is Us." But before he was Jack Pearson, he was the handsome Jess Mariano of "Gilmore Girls," which means that Ventimiglia has been acting since 2000.
With a net worth of $12 million, this actor has done very well for himself. He’s also landed roles in the "Gilmore Girls" reboot, the hit TV show "Heroes," and films like "The Art of Racing in the Rain" and 2006’s "Rocky Balboa."
Jimmy Buffett – $600M
American singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett was the epitome of laid-back. He was the guy you always see with a groovy Hawaiian shirt, smiling in the backyard, playing his music. But he was also one of the richest people in the U.S., with a net worth of $600 million.
Buffet started out playing his music on the streets of New Orleans and slowly became a huge artist with over 30 albums and thousands of live show performances. The man was also an author, a hotelier, and a restaurant chain owner, of the famous Margaritaville restaurants.
Amy Schumer – $45M
American stand-up comedian and actress Amy Schumer has risen to fame since the early 2000s after appearing in NBC’s "Last Comic Standing." The comedienne has amassed an incredible $45 million from her brilliant work. Especially with her famous comedy TV series, "Inside Amy Schumer."
Schumer has been quite busy since, starring in the movie "Trainwreck" and writing the book "The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo." This hard-working woman has managed to do all this while raising her son, Gene.
Rowan Atkinson – $150M
It seems strange to think that Mr. Bean is a millionaire, and not just any millionaire, but one worth $150 million. Rowan Atkinson played Mr. Bean for years and then became Johnny English in the extremely popular film series. Even though he wasn’t a huge celebrity in the U.S., he is basically a pop culture icon in Britain.
He also starred in the popular sitcom "Blackadder" for six years. This decades-long career is responsible for his very happy bank account.
Sean “P. Diddy” Combs – $900M
Music artist Sean Combs may have risen to fame in the 90s through his relatively successful music career, but his fortune came much later. As a very skilled entrepreneur, Combs has many sources of revenue, such as his own clothing brand, called Sean John, and a production company called Bad Boy Entertainment.
Additionally, Combs came into a lot of money after signing a development deal with Ciroc vodka. Now this man knows how to make money.
Peter Jackson – $1B
As the brilliant New Zealand-born director, writer, and producer of one of the most incredible film series in the history of cinema, it’s no wonder Peter Jackson is worth over $1 billion. Jackson’s movie adaptation of "The Lord of the Rings" book trilogy is nothing short of a masterpiece. A masterpiece that earned him over $180 million dollars.
Combined with the earnings of his later trilogy film adaptation of "The Hobbit," the profits made were over $6 billion at the cinema theaters and on DVD.
Kid Rock – $150M
Kid Rock is a jack of all trades, a self-taught musician that can sing, act, play any instrument, and also produce. He rose to fame in the early 2000s with his hit singles “Picture” and “All Summer Long” and his 2007 album “Rock n Roll Jesus.”
Nowadays, this rock, hip hop, and country artist is worth an impressive $150 million, and he just recently released another album, “Bad Reputation.” And he was married to Pamela Anderson!
Stephanie McMahon – $150M
As the daughter of the CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment Inc., you’d expect Stephanie McMahon to be swimming in money. And effectively, she is, being worth approximately $150 million.
But not just because of her father’s achievements, though. Stephanie was a professional wrestler once herself and has worked her way to being the co-chief executive officer of the WWE. Additionally, she’s a prominent figure in brands like SmackDown, Raw, and NXT.
Macaulay Culkin – $18M
It’s not surprising that this child actor has amassed a net worth of $18 million throughout his career. In the early 90s, Macaulay Culkin was everywhere on screen. Starting with a role in the incredibly successful Home Alone movies, he then starred in the coming-of-age film "My Girl" and its sequel.
Being Kevin McCallister in "Home Alone" and "Home Alone 2" certainly earned him some impressive cash, but he then went on to star in "The Pagemaster" and "Richie Rich," two 90s classics. Even though we haven’t seen much of Culkin in the last decades, we’re sure his fortune has lasted him quite a bit.
Christian Slater – $25M
Unlike his star character Mr. Robot in the hit television series of the same name, actor Christian Slater is worth a whopping $25 million dollars. Slater made his acting debut in the 1985 film "The Legend of Billie Jean" and then the cult 1988 film "Heathers."
The actor landed roles in famous films after that, including "The Name of the Rose," "True Romance," "Broken Arrow," and others. Slater hasn’t had the best reputation in Hollywood, mainly in his romantic life, but he’s still a great actor and a millionaire.
Monica Lewinsky – $1.5M
Maybe we know Monica Lewinsky for all the wrong reasons, but when those reasons have made you have a net worth of $1.5 million, they really don’t matter much. Lewinsky became world-famous after her infamous affair with ex-president Bill Clinton went public in the 90s.
Since then, she’s signed a book deal, made countless TV appearances and brand endorsements, been a spokesperson, and has also designed and sold her own handbags.
Leonardo DiCaprio – $245M
It would be hard to find a person in the world that doesn’t know the name Leonardo DiCaprio. The man has been in virtually every major blockbuster for the last three decades. Ever since his role as one of the kids in "Growing Pains," DiCaprio has become a pillar of the film industry.
His astonishing film career has made him a fortune of $245 million and counting. What’s more, the man has never been married or had any kids, which means every single penny goes to him.
Sarah Hyland – $14M
Beautiful actress Sarah Hyland is most famously known for her role as Haley in the American hit sitcom "Modern Family." And that’s probably where most of her net worth of $14 million comes from.
However, Hyland has been acting for years before that, having roles in movies and TV shows, including "Spanglish," "Hot in Cleveland," "Lipstick Jungle," "All My Children," and "Law and Order: SVU." Hyland recently got married to TV personality Wells Adams.
Mandy Moore – $14M
Even though most people know her as an actress, any 90s child will know Mandy Moore as the cute pop singer that released the 1999 hit “Candy.” Moore started her celebrity career in the music business, but she delved into acting in the early 2000s.
Nowadays, Moore is worth $14 million, so it’s safe to say her acting career proved way more successful than her singing. Moore has starred in "A Walk to Remember," "The Princess Diaries," "Because I said So," and most recently in the hit series, "This Is Us."
Richard Gere – $120M
The hunk from the 80s and 90s, Richard Gere had everybody’s heart pounding when he first appeared in "American Gigolo." He continued to conquer the silver screen with hits like "Pretty Woman," "Runaway Bride," "Primal Fear," "Autumn in New York," "Unfaithful," and dozens more.
His brilliant acting skills have earned him a net worth of $120 million, and the man has never stopped acting. Gere is also known for being a climate activist and philanthropist.
Chelsea Handler – $40M
Considering that comedienne and TV persona Chelsea Handler appeared on our screens in 2007, the fact that she’s worth $40 million is very impressive. Her show "Chelsea Lately" raked in a lot of viewers and money, and she just kept appearing on screens ever since.
Apart from her very successful show, several TV comedy sketches, and acting in comedy films, Handler is also a writer with five books under her belt, four of them being bestsellers.
