Celebrities who you would be richer than if you won the mega millions
Even if you won a whopping $483 million, there are still a number of celebrities that would be richer than you. That said, you would definitely be richer than a bunch of actors, musicians and comedians.
For starters, Rowand Atkinson, the famous Mr Bean, is only worth about $150 million despite being a British national treasure. He’s starred in countless movies as his personality, along with a few talk shows. He was even involved in the opening show for the 2012 London Summer Olympics.
If you haven’t watched Seinfeld, you should stop what you’re doing and go catch a few episodes. Seinfeld was an insanely popular sitcom from the late 80s to the early 90s, and the stars made millions from it. That said, you’d still be richer than Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who is only worth about $250 million.
Speaking of Seinfeld, the famed comedian, and showrunner Larry David, who has more accolades under his belt than can be mentioned, is only worth about $400 million dollars. The man has spent his whole life in show business, running successful show after successful show, but all it takes is one little lottery ticket to instantly overtake his hard work and dedication.
Remember Judge Judy? At one point she was one of the highest-paid celebrity TV actors of all time, earning millions for every season of Judge Judy. Well, if you won that recent Mega Millions drawing, you’d be worth more than her, because she is “only” worth around $440 million.
The famous actor Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t even have a net worth of over $483 million— and he’s been in some of the biggest movies of the 21st century! Leo is only worth around $300 million, which is surprising considering how much of a blockbuster draw he is.
Will Smith, another massive actor, is only worth $350 million, which is surprising considering Leo seems to be a better actor with more accolades. Will Smith is famous for his time on Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Men in Black and a slew of other movies that drove him to the top of stardom.
To sum it up, if you won the Mega Millions lottery, you’d be richer than almost any celebrity you’ve seen on TV except for a select few. Some of these people have worked their whole lives to amass that wealth, and you could manage to garner a net worth more than them with just a 6-number drawing and a piece of paper.
