It seems strange to think that Mr. Bean is a millionaire, and not just any millionaire, but one worth $150 million. Rowan Atkinson played Mr. Bean for years and then became Johnny English in the extremely popular film series. Even though he wasn’t a huge celebrity in the U.S., he is basically a pop culture icon in Britain.
He also starred in the popular sitcom “Blackadder” for six years. This decades-long career is responsible for his very happy bank account.
Jimmy Buffett – $600M
American singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett was the epitome of laid-back. He was the guy you always see with a groovy Hawaiian shirt, smiling in the backyard, playing his music. But he was also one of the richest people in the U.S., with a net worth of $600 million.
Buffet started out playing his music on the streets of New Orleans and slowly became a huge artist with over 30 albums and thousands of live show performances. The man was also an author, a hotelier, and a restaurant chain owner, of the famous Margaritaville restaurants.
Amy Schumer – $45M
American stand-up comedian and actress Amy Schumer has risen to fame since the early 2000s after appearing in NBC’s "Last Comic Standing." The comedienne has amassed an incredible $45 million from her brilliant work. Especially with her famous comedy TV series, "Inside Amy Schumer."
Schumer has been quite busy since, starring in the movie "Trainwreck" and writing the book "The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo." This hard-working woman has managed to do all this while raising her son, Gene.
Sean “P. Diddy” Combs – $900M
Music artist Sean Combs may have risen to fame in the 90s through his relatively successful music career, but his fortune came much later. As a very skilled entrepreneur, Combs has many sources of revenue, such as his own clothing brand, called Sean John, and a production company called Bad Boy Entertainment.
Additionally, Combs came into a lot of money after signing a development deal with Ciroc vodka. Now this man knows how to make money.
Peter Jackson – $1B
As the brilliant New Zealand-born director, writer, and producer of one of the most incredible film series in the history of cinema, it’s no wonder Peter Jackson is worth over $1 billion. Jackson’s movie adaptation of "The Lord of the Rings" book trilogy is nothing short of a masterpiece. A masterpiece that earned him over $180 million dollars.
Combined with the earnings of his later trilogy film adaptation of "The Hobbit," the profits made were over $6 billion at the cinema theaters and on DVD.
