Celebrities—they’re always assumed to be rich. But it would be a folly to paint them all with the same brush. Yes, most of them are rich, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to learn that some of them will manage more than a few lifetimes with the wealth they have on hand. But not all are equally rich because some of them border on the level of being insanely rich, with lawyers and financial advisors working round the clock to cater to their every wealth-making scheme. Read on to find out just how big the wealth chasm is between us and these denizens of Hollywood, as well as between themselves.
JOHN TRAVOLTA – EST. $250 MILLION
Since his iconic performance in the film Grease, John Travolta’s name has basically become synonymous with superstardom. He first pursued acting after dropping out of high school in 1971 and moved to New York. He began his career with minor roles on Broadway until he was cast to be part of the traveling cast of Grease. John had bigger plans in mind, though.
After a few years of living in the Big Apple, he moved to the Golden Coast to scout for bigger opportunities. It was there that Travolta landed his big break in the film Saturday Night Fever in 1977, which was quickly followed by the film version of Grease in 1978. Since then, John’s career has met a few highs and lows, but he continues to build his already successful career even to this day. Now, John Travolta’s investments and assets have earned him a staggering net worth of about $250 million.
