Yes, we know that Leonardo DiCaprio has starred in huge blockbuster films but how much money was he paid for his work? Or rom-com king Richard Gere? And what about Dolly Parton, the Queen of Country? How much money has she taken home from all her recordings? Prepare to be blown away by the crazy net worths of some of the biggest celebrities in the world.
Jon Stewart – $80 Million
Everyone’s favorite controversial political talk show host quietly raking in millions each year. John Stewart didn’t make much at the beginning of his comedy career with stand-up gigs and writing for other comedy shows. It was in 1993 on MTV when he shot to stardom with The Jon Stewart Show.
After his big break, he’s hosted a variety of shows including The Daily Show. Stewart ended his run on the show in 2015 to work on his writing but it looks like he made a pretty penny before that.
