8 Actors That Are Surprisingly Rich

There are a few names in Hollywood who you associate with having money, such as Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.

However, there are a few other people who are on the list of the most successful people in the acting industry who you might not think about at first. In the world of Hollywood, a million dollars is often considered a drop in the bucket compared to how much money some people really make.

Several A-list actors are valued at over $100 million as they tend to earn millions for each movie or television show. Aside from the people who are well-known, there are actors who make just as much money but who aren't heard of because they don't want their name out in the public eye. They want to live a quiet life. Here are 8 actors that are surprisingly rich.

Martin Lawrence


A star in "Bad Boys," Lawrence is worth over $110 million. He grew up in a home with a single mother who strived to work multiple jobs at a time in order to provide for her children. At first, Lawrence wanted to be a boxer until he was on "Star Search." This led to being cast on "What's Happening Now," which is how his acting career started.

Peter Stormare


The Swedish actor has been in over 100 movies and games and is worth over $215 million. He often portrays a bad guy in movies who is loved by viewers. He can be seen in "22 Jump Street" and "Fargo." These movies can be seen in popular streaming services.

Sasha Alexander


Getting her start in "Dawson's Creek," Alexander is seen in many crime shows including "NCIS." She has won a People's Choice Award and has a net worth of about $215 million. Most of her money is from jobs outside of acting as she is quite a businesswoman.

Frances Fisher


If you've seen "Titanic," which by the way is available on HBO and Dish TV to stream, then you know this actress is Rose's mother. She is worth more than the actress who played Rose in the movie, Kate Winslet. She is often considered in Hollywood as one of the highest-paid actresses of her generation and has been seen in shows like "Roseanne" and "Law and Order."

Patrick Wilson


Wilson is a man who is often seen in movies that delve deep into the world of spirits. He can be seen in "Insidious" and "The Conjuring." Before starring in these movies, he made a claim that his home was haunted. Aside from acting, Wilson is known for being an exceptional singer. His worth is close to $275 million.

Jessica Szohr


As seen in "Gossip Girl," Szohr also struggled to reach stardom as she started out by cleaning houses. She soon modeled for companies like Mountain Dew, Sears, and Quaker Oats. She can be seen in films such as "Piranha 3D" and "The Internship." You can stream her popular TV series and movies on HBO and Dish TV.

Rowan Atkinson


This man is known as Mr. Bean. He takes on the character as though he's truly the man in the series. He's worth about $130 million but tries to live a simple life instead of living in a large home or driving fancy cars as he's humble about his earnings.

Nick Kroll


Kroll is one of the main character voices in "Captain Underpants." Although he's starred in live-action films, he tends to enjoy being the voice of cartoon characters. He's a family man and enjoys giving his time to the family business as his father founded Kroll Inc, a company that played a role in the investigation of Saddam Hussein's money.
