George Clooney Is Almost as Rich as Queen Elizabeth
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.
