Top 10 Richest Celebrity Couples in The World
10. Matthew Broderick & Sarah Jessica Parker
Matthew Broderick & Sarah Jessica Parker start the list off. They have been seen in movies & in television shows over the years. Their careers are still going strong and through the years they have been able to accumulate a combined total of $135 million dollars. It is not an even split with Ms. Parker contributing approx. $90 million to that total.
9. Faith Hill & Tim McGraw
The country music world today is not like it was 50 years or more ago. Performers can earn a lot more money singing in this genre than they used to. One example is this country music couple. Through concerts, album sales and other ventures, this power couple have become one of the richest celebrity couples in the world. Their fortune, on roughly an even split, has reached $165 million and still growing.
8. John Travolta & Kelly Preston
The star of hit movies like Grease, Staying Alive, and Pulp Fiction. And the hit television series, Welcome Back Kotter. Mr. Travolta has been able to contribute over $170 million to the couple’s $190+ million fortune. His wife is also an actress, but she has not had the same monetary success as her husband. His string of successes has also helped Mr. Travolta become a pilot and own his own planes.
7. Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban
Divorcing Tom Cruise was not a financial downturn for this Australian actress and her country & western singing husband. The majority of their wealth comes from her movie activities, but he holds his own by contributing $75 million to their combined total of $205 million fortune. Money does not let them slow down. Both are still very active in the entertainment business despite being one of the richest celebrity couples in the world.
6. Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart
She was famous for being Ally McBeal. That was the name of her television series. Unfortunately, that fame was eclipsed by her husband’s iconic roles as Indiana Jones and Hans Solo. He also had a leading role in American Graffiti which started it all for him. Neither of the two needs to work anymore as their combined riches reach over $254 million. But we are sure we will see more of at least of them in the future.
5. Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith
Mr. Smith was an unknown rapper until his Fresh Prince television show made it big. Since then, he has starred in some of the biggest movies to hit the big screen. Men in Black, Independence Day, are but two of the hits that have helped him and his wife amass a $280 million fortune and become one of the richest celebrity couples in the world. Sadly, Mrs. Smith has not seen the same success as her husband. Her personal fortune is only $20 million of that total.
4. Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
Before their split, this was a match made in Hollywood heaven. These two were rich long before they decided to become a couple. That is because they were lucky enough to have good looks and given great roles. In this couple, it is the man who leads the financial way. He contributed $240 million to their combined total of $400 million savings. Their popularity will see them get more roles and add to that staggering fortune.
3. David & Victoria Beckham
We have added a sports star to the list as they are a form of celebrity in today’s world. He deserves to be on this list as he is one of the more famous soccer athletes of all time. He and his former singing wife have amassed a fortune of $900 million and counting. It didn’t all come from playing soccer or singing though. This couple has also made good investments through the years to help them reach that total.
2. Jay-Z & Beyonce
This couple is so wealthy and famous that they do not need to use last names. But it isn’t movies that helped this power couple become one of the richest celebrity couples in the world. The majority of their fortune comes from their involvement n the music industry. They have also made a lot of wise investments to help pad their total. Right now, their fortune stands at roughly $1.15 billion. That is right, we said billion not million.
1. Steven Spielberg & Kate Capshaw
This couple is also a member of the billion-dollar fortune club. Yet his fortune did not come from acting or music. It came from his from his directing talent. He was the guiding force in many of the top grossing films of all time. Jaws, Indiana Jones, E.T. are just a few of his movie successes. His wife contributes a paltry $20 million to their $3.5-billion estate. That amount is nothing to sneeze at either.
We have left off the likes of Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Selma Hayek and their husbands. This is done for the simple reason their husbands are not celebrities. They are businessmen and are not in the spotlight that often. Their fortunes reach, 1.175, 4.2 & 5.1 billion dollars respectively.
You may disagree with our choices for this list. But that is okay. We are sure we missed out on some of your favorite celebrity couples. There are certainly far more than just 10 the richest celebrity couples in the world. Because celebrities keep making money, we are sure that this list will have to be revised in the near future.
