Saying George Clooney is one of the wealthiest men in Hollywood is akin to saying the sky is blue or J.Lo and A-Rod are a cute couple. We know. It's obvious.

Still, breaking down just how much the A-lister takes home each year is somewhat entertaining, especially since we know he has the kind of stash that enables him to give 14 of his best friends briefcases with $1 million each, just because. And you thought flowers and a card were nice.

According to The Richest, Clooney's net worth is an astounding $500 million. To put that in perspective, that's more than double Brad Pitt's net worth, and it's a hair's breadth away from the literal Queen of England's net worth.

A large chunk of that does come from movie salaries, but it also comes from the $1 billion sale of tequila company Casamigos, which he co-founded with Cindy Crawford's husband, Rande Gerber, and sold in June of last year. Clearly, Clooney doesn't just have a mind for acting, but for business too.

Call us if you have any extra briefcases of cash lying around, please and thank you.
