89-Year-Old Clint Eastwood’s Net Worth

Clint Eastwood's net worth

His name has been a huge presence in Hollywood for decades. He’s directed and acted in dozens of films over the past few decades. Now, he has had his hand in an entirely new project – a motion picture about himself. What has all of the steady work over the years done for Clint Eastwood’s net worth?

About Clint Eastwood

Eastwood was born on May 31, 1930, in San Francisco. He did not grow up poor. On the contrary, the Eastwoods actually had a swimming pool, two cars, and belonged to a country club. As a student, Eastwood did not excel. In fact, his school records show he had to attend summer school. After high school, he enrolled in the United States Army. He fought during the Korean War.

His first big success in his acting career was when he landed his role in Rawhide in 1954. The film initially earned him criticisms about the way he acted on camera. People pointed out the way he spoke through his teeth and had an overall stuff manner on camera. Eventually, both these things became trademark Eastwood characteristics.

After that role, he began gaining attention for other roles, including a trilogy of spaghetti Westerns in the 1960s. Then, throughout the 1970s and 1980s, he became Dirty Harry. Each of these roles made Eastwood into the cultural icon he is today. While many of his memorable roles date back to the 1970s and 1980s, Eastwood’s career has been far from stale.

The 1990s to Present

Throughout the 90s and early 2000s, Eastwood performed in films that earned him some of his first Academy Awards. He received nominations for Best Actor and won awards for Best Director (1992) and Best Picture (2004). Much of his directing work has gotten attention in more recent years as well.

In addition to starring in many films, Eastwood has directed some hit motion pictures as well, one of them being the mystery-drama Mystic River (2003). He also directed Letters from Iwo Jima (2006), Changeling (2008), Invictus (2009), and American Sniper (2014). Each of these films earned him nominations for several awards as well as broke box-office records.

In addition to his work in the U.S., he has also received praise for a number of his films in Europe. Eastwood has actually been awarded two of the highest honors in France: the Commander of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (1994) and the Legion of Honour medal (2007). In 2000, he was awarded the Italian Venice Film Festival Golden Lion for lifetime achievement. These achievements only begin to graze the success Eastwood has experienced throughout his career.

Personal Life

Not unlike many other Hollywood stars, Eastwood has had his share of failed relationships, both serious and casual, which has led to whispers of scandal. After proposing to Maggie Johnson in 1953, he had an affair that resulted in a child that was later given up for adoption. While married to her, he had a number of other affairs as well, including one 14-year-long affair with Roxanne Tunis, who he had a daughter with.

It has been reported that Johnson tolerated Eastwood’s actions. The couple had two children together and eventually divorced. In 1975, actress Sondra Locke and Eastwood began shacking up with each other. Unlike Johnson, Locke was not pleased when she learned about Eastwood’s indiscretions. During their relationship, he had two children with a flight attendant. Locke filed a palimony lawsuit when they separated in 1989. In the 1990s, he had a number of other relationships resulting in more children. He got married for the second time in 1996 to news anchor Dina Ruiz. The marriage lasted until 2013.

Clint Eastwood’s Net Worth: $375 Million

Clint Eastwood's net worthWith decades of work under his belt, Clint Eastwood’s net worth has reached an astounding $375 million. Considering he started out making $700 a week for his role on Rawhide, that is amazing! Here is how much Eastwood has earned over the years…

  • 1964: $15,000: Eastwood’s salary received for the appearance in Per un pugno di dollari
  • 1965: $50,000: Salary received for the appearance in Per un pugno di dollari
  • 1966: $250,000: Amount received for the appearance in Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo
  • 1967: $20,000: Salary received for his appearance in Le streghe
  • 1968: $750,000: Amount earned for his appearance in Where Eagles Dare
    • 1968: $400,000: Salary received for Hang ‘Em High
  • 1969: $500,000: Salary received for appearance in Paint Your Wagon
  • 1978: $12 million: Amount received for Every Which Way But Loose
  • 1984: $5 million: Salary received for his appearance in City Heat
  • 1993: $7 million: Salary received for the appearance in In the Line of Fire

Assets, Endorsements, Investments

Although Eastwood has had eight children and a few failed relationships, he doesn’t have to pay out any money in alimony or child support. Now, all of his children are fully grown and don’t qualify for monthly child support payments. Neither of his marriages resulted in him paying alimony either, so he lucked out in that respect.

A portion of the actor’s overall net worth stems from the assets he owns. Eastwood owns a $9.75 million mansion in Pebble Beach that contributes to his wealth. He also owns an all-electric Fiat 500e, an Austin Healy, and a Ferrari 365. Eastwood has also hung on to his favorite car, his 1992 GMC Typhoon, that has skyrocketed in value over the years because of its limited production numbers.

In addition to his assets, Eastwood has also earned some money through endorsements. The main endorsement you may have seen his face behind is that of Chrysler. He has also helped with campaigns for the Red Cross, AIDS/HIV research, and other causes.

Next year, Eastwood will celebrate his 90th birthday. That doesn’t mean he will be slowing down any time soon though. With his latest movie debuting on the big screen last week, it is safe to say Eastwood will continue working (and earning) until he can no longer.

From Model to Model Mom: Chrissy Teigen’s Net Worth

Chrissy Teigen's net worth

Thanksgiving is this week and if you are on Instagram you are probably waiting to see what John Legend’s wife is cooking for the holiday. Chrissy Teigen started out as a model, transitioned into a television host and star, and has now become a celebrity chef. What has this success done for Chrissy Teigen’s net worth?

About Chrissy Teigen

Teigen was born on November 30, 1985, in Delta, Utah. Her mother, who she features on her Instagram and Twitter often, is of Thai descent, while her father is Norweigan. The family moved around a lot when Teigen was younger, but eventually, they settled in Huntington Beach, California when she was a teenager. In high school, she was a cheerleader and worked at a surf shop, where a photographer discovered her.

IMG Models in New York eventually signed Teigen on as a model in 2004. She became a substitute model for Deal or No Deal between 2006 and 2007. Since then, Teigen has been able to earn money through various lucrative endorsement deals and even co-hosting television shows.

Some of her most popular and successful campaigns have been with Billabong, Gap Factory, Gillette Venus, Nike, Nine West, Olay, Skullcandy headphones, UGG Australia, and XOXO. Fellow model Brooklyn Decker put Teigen in contact with individuals at Sports Illustrated who put her in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 swimsuit issues. In 2014, she landed the cover of the 50th-anniversary swimsuit issue.

Sports Illustrated isn’t the only magazine Teigen has modeled for either. She has appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan and Ocean Drive. Teigen has also provided interviews and done photoshoots for other publications such as Cosmo, Esquire, Galore, Glamour, and Vogue. 

Television, Cookbooks, and Becoming a Social Media Star

When she isn’t working in the modeling world, Teigen has found plenty of different sources of income to keep her busy. She has taken on the job of being a mother, social media and TV star, writer, and cook.

In 2013, Teigen was featured in a Cooking Channel special called Chrissy Teigen’s Hungry. During the episode, she detailed wedding food tasting with her soon-to-be hubby. She also filmed another Cooking Channel special called Cookies and Cocktails. In addition to these cooking specials, Teigen has also released several successful cookbooks, including Cravings and Cravings 2. 

On television, Teigen has landed a number of gigs. She is most famous for her role as co-host of Lip Sync Battle. Teigen has also served as a guest host and contributor on other shows such as America’s Next Top Model, E!, Extra, FUSE, MTV, and TMZ. 

Other projects Teigen has had her hand in include designing a collection with swimwear designer DiNeila Brazil. The collection debuted at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Miami in 2011. She also appeared as a character in the video game Need For Speed: The Run that year as well.

Eventually, Teigen took to social media and people grew to love her – like a lot. She has racked up millions of followers and each one has opened up a door for more endorsement deals. Not to mention, she gets to share what a day in the life of Chrissy Teigen is like and people love seeing photos of her family, food, and her and John Legend constantly loving all over each other. Additionally, she’s become the queen of the social media clapback. People love her attitude! But what has all of this done for Teigen’s wealth?

Chrissy Teigen’s Net Worth: $11.5 Million

Chrissy Teigen's net worthIt is estimated that Chrissy Teigen’s net worth sits around $11.5 million. In 2017, Forbes listed her at number three on the list of highest-paid models in the world, earning $13.5 million that year.

While that is impressive, Teigen came from extremely humble beginnings. In fact, she didn’t have a bank account and ate McDonald’s to save money. At the beginning of her modeling career, she shared a living room in an apartment with six other models.

Teigen remembers this point in her life saying, “I knew exactly how much it was with tax to get a McDouble and fries.” Now that she’s become a successful career woman, Teigen has taken the chance to give back to her parents. Her mother even lives with the family in their Beverly Hills home today.

Teigen’s Assets

Teigen appeared in the music video for the song All Of Me, which was inspired by the relationship between her and John Legend. The couple got married in Como, Italy in 2013, after six years of dating. Combined with her husband’s $40 million fortune, the pair is the definition of a power couple.

Like many celebrity couples, John and Chrissy own two homes: one in New York and one in California. This makes it easy for the family to be together when John is traveling on tour. Their Beverly Hills home, valued at $14.1 million, used to belong to pop star Rihanna. The couple also owns a penthouse apartment in Manhattan (valued at $9 million).

Both John and Chrissy fly pretty often and don’t drive much. When she does drive, Teigen can usually be seen in the couple’s Tesla Model S (starting price of $75,000).

Expanding Her Career

The key for Teigen to reach this type of wealth has been finding new ways to earn money. Some of her latest collaborations have been on social media. She has partnered with Blue Apron, which has made endorsing her cookbooks and recipes easier. Teigen has adapted some of her favorite recipes to be delivered to subscriber’s doors.

Speaking of recipes, as mentioned before, Teigen has launched two successful cookbooks. The first cookbook, Cravings, sold more than 400,000 copies ($12 million in sales). Her second book, Cravings: Hungry For More, sold around 150,000 copies just two months after it was published.  Because of this success, Teigen launched a cookware line with Target. The collection sold out almost instantly.

Other recent collaborations Teigen has been involved in have been with brands like BECCA Cosmetics, who she partnered with to create a palette. She also helped collab with Quay Australia to promote their latest blue light blocking glasses.

Teigen has used motherhood as another source of income as well. She joined Pampers as a creative consultant for its Pure collection. She and her husband John collaborate together sometimes as well. The couple could be seen in a Google Assistant ad this past March that aired during the Oscars.

There is no doubt with such diversity in her earnings that Teigen still has room to grow in her career and wealth. She is only 33 and there is no telling how much Chrissy Teigen’s net worth will expand in the years to come.
