Name: Julia Fiona Roberts
Born: 28 October 1967
Occupation: Actress, Producer, Model
Julia Roberts was the second born child to Betty Lou and Walter, both actors who also ran an acting studio in Decatur, Georgia. She has an older brother, Eric, who is also an actor, a sister, and a half sister from her mother’s second marriage when Julia was in elementary school. After graduating from high school Julia decided to head for New York to pursue acting. She signed with Click Modeling Agency but took acting classes as she supported herself with modeling.
Julia’s first film role was uncredited, and her second was in Blood Red. Her next film Mystic Pizza didn’t do well at the box office, but became somewhat of a cult hit. She also had a part in Steel Magnolias, but it wasn’t until the following year in Pretty Woman that she became a household name. Starring alongside Richard Gere, the film grossed over $463,000,000 worldwide and solidified her as an actress.
She later went on to star in such hits as Flatliners, Hook, Sleeping with the Enemy, The Pelican Brief, My Best Friend’s Wedding (with Cameron Diaz), Runaway Bride, Erin Brockovich, Ocean’s Eleven co-starred with Brad Pitt and George Clooney, and it’s successor Ocean’s Twelve (with Matt Damon and Catherine Zeta-Jones). She was most recently seen as Queen Clementianna in Mirror, Mirror (with Lily Collins). She has been nominated for and won numerous awards. Unfortunately, her unofficial ‘America’s Princess’ title was tarnished when she began dating Danny Moder, a married man. He quickly divorced his wife and married Julia the next year. They now have three children together.
Because of Julia’s huge box office drawing, she is one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, making as much as $25,000,000 per film. Julia has also ventured into producing the American Girl films. Due to her success over the years and her high acting fees, we estimate her net worth close to $140,000,000 (GBP 89,442,000).
So how much is $140 million dollars really?
Let’s just say if Julia wanted to revisit the role that made her famous, she could purchase some fishnet stockings. For her $140 million she could have 10,370,370 pairs. That’s a lot of stockings. Maybe she would rather buy something a little more practical to remind herself of that famous film. For just $175,000 she could buy the newest version of the Lotus Esprit she drove in Pretty Woman. She’s actually got enough money to buy 800 of them.
