Now we can argue that we didn’t get a lot of screen time from Reese in 2019. How surprised would you be if we told you she was the highest-paid actress in 2019 despite her limited screen time? If you don’t believe us, let us take you down to a point by point cash grab that Reese made despite staying out of the limelight.
The Academy Award-winning actress has been making a lot of cash as a powerful Hollywood producer and through her lifestyle and clothing brand – Draper Jones. According to Forbes, Reese is one of America’s wealthiest self-made women as she grabbed the 79th spot on their 2019 list. She also topped the highest-paid actress list of 2019 where her income was noted at 35$ million alone from movies. An alternate source from CBS News reports that Reese charges $15 and $20 million per movie she acts in.
Forbes further goes on to estimate that Reese was paid a staggering $1 million per episode for season two of Big Little Lies. She appears in seven episodes, so do the math. Furthermore, she and her co-star Jennifer Anniston were paid $1.2 million for each of the 10 episodes to appear on The Morning Show.
While it is not clear how much she banks from working behind the scenes for her production company Hello Sunshine but guessing from her normal charges, we figure it might be a lot. Furthermore, they have struck a deal with AT&T to launch VOD (A video streaming service), in addition to a speaking tour, a book club, newsletters centered around an all-female centric podcast.
So, what does that all boil down too? Are you ready? Forbes estimates that Reese is estimated to be a pounding $240 million worth. While that may be an estimate, imagine if it’s the real deal!
