All that glitters is not just Oscar.
Wealth-X has undertaken the task of ranking Oscar-winning actors and actresses by their accumulated wealth, so that you might have another metric by which to judge them.
Here are the top five.
5. Sean Connery
Connery, Sean Connery won his Oscar in 1988 for Best Supporting Actor in The Untouchables. At 83, he’s currently valued at $250 million, which can buy him a lot of “Scotland Forever” tattoos.
4. Barbra Streisand
The singer, actor, director, 71, won a Best Actress Oscar in 1969 for Funny Girl. Between her film and music career (and her stock portfolio), she’s valued at $310 million. Not bad for someone who couldn’t get into rabbinical school (cue Yentl overture).
3. Robert De Niro
Coincidentally, DeNiro, at 70, is also worth $310 million. The two-time Oscar winner (for The Godfather: Part II and Raging Bull in 1975 and 1981, respectively) might have more if he’d stop losing $100 bets to Jimmy Fallon.
2. Tom Hanks
Hanks is the young buck on this list: At 57, he’s worth a cool $350 million. His back-to-back Best Actor Oscars (for Philadelphia in 1994 and Forrest Gump in 1995) no doubt helped raise his price, though it was a lucrative (and fictional) endorsement deal with Wilson that really broke the bank.
1. Jack Nicholson
More like Jack Quarters-son. (Sorry.) At 76, with Oscars in 1976, 1984 and 1998 (for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Terms of Endearment and As Good as It Gets), Jack-Attack is worth $390 million. That’s not as good as it gets, but it’s pretty darn close. The 86th annual Academy Awards, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, airs Sunday, March 2, at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
