Oscar: Wealthiest Oscar-Winning Actors

Actor Jack Nicholson tops Wealth-X’s Oscar-Winning Actors Rich List with an estimated net worth of $390 million. The 76-year-old three-time Oscar winner won his first Academy Award in 1976 for “One Flew The Cuckoos Nest”, and claimed two more trophies in 1984 for “Terms of Endearment” and in 1998 for “As Good As It Gets”.

Sandra Bullock – the only Academy Award winner on the list with a 2014 nomination – is also the youngest actor on the list at 49 years old. She is estimated to be worth US$150 million. Bullock, who is nominated this year for her performance as a lost-in-space astronaut in the Alfonso Cuáron sci-fi thriller “Gravity”, won her first Oscar in 2010 for “The Blind Side”.

The combined net worth of the 10 Oscar winners on the list is $2.5 billion.

Wealth-X President David S. Friedman commented: “Creating substantial wealth through entertainment takes incredible perseverance, skill and longevity which all these individuals possess.”
