5. Jerry Seinfeld
Who hasn’t heard of Jerry Seinfeld? Seriously, the man is one of the greatest stand-up comedians of all time and is also an actor, director, writer, and producer. Initially, he gave stand-up comedy a try at New York City’s “Catch a Rising Star,” and that’s precisely what happened: he got caught, and the rest is history. Probably most well-known for his hit comedy series Seinfeld, he’s made a giant name for himself and earned the net worth of $900 million. Since the extremely popular show ended, he’s returned to the stage and resumed his stand-up work. He’s also continued acting and has been on countless tv and awards shows. He’s written books such as Seinlanguage and a children’s book titled Halloween.


4. Jay-Z
One of the best-selling musicians of all time, it’s no surprise that Jay-Z should make this list. The man has received 21, yes 21, Grammy Awards for his music, and he was ranked the “Greatest MC of all time” by MTV in 2006. With an estimated net worth of $810 million, he is worth quite a lot of money. By pairing him with his incredibly talented wife, Beyonce, the couple’s net worth climbs to well over $1 billion. He’s also a lucrative businessman, with clothing companies, a sports agency, his own cigars, and he’s also a co-brand director for Budweiser Select. He's supported the American Red Cross with donations and founded The Shawn Carter Foundation with his mother to help struggling college students get through their education. He’s dipped his hand into politics and tries to help bring to light issues surrounding racism, oppression, and the criminal justice system.


3. Paul McCartney
The Beatles; everybody knows who they are, and if you don’t, you may have been living under a rock for the past, say, sixty-ish years. Paul McCartney was one of the founding members of the group, slapping the bass and singing for the band. Aside from being a singer and songwriter, he also plays lots of different instruments and composes. In fact, he’s one of the most successful performers and composers of all time. He’s won eighteen Grammy Awards, has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music and was even knighted in 1997 by Queen Elizabeth II. He’s highly charitable and has helped fight for many a cause since he was young. Paul McCartney is basically synonymous with wealth, and his estimated net worth is $1.2 billion.


2. Oprah Winfrey
Another rags to riches story on this list comes in the form of the almighty, great, and powerful Oprah Winfrey. This woman does so, so much. She’s a talk show host, producer, actress, media proprietor, and is a well-known philanthropist. Her talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, was the highest-rated tv program of its kind in history and was shot in Chicago between 1986 to 2011. Oprah was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2013 by President Barack Obama and has been called the most influential woman in the world. She doesn’t stick to just television though, as she’s been seen in films such as The Color Purple and Beloved, and has done voice-over work on the films Charlotte’s Web (2006) and Bee Movie. She’s co-authored five books, is publishing a memoir and even published her own magazine for a time. More recently, in 2011, she got her own channel called Own: Oprah Winfrey Network. With all of this under her belt, it probably comes as no surprise that she’s worth a whopping $2.8 billion.


Steven Spielberg
Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the man who tops our list. Steven Spielberg is a director, screenwriter, and producer, and he’s pretty much the most popular of all three in human history. Director of infinitely successful movies like Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, Bridge of Spies, War of the Worlds; the list could go on and on. He’s won the Best Director Grammy twice and is considered a founding pioneer of the New Hollywood Era. We literally can’t list everything that this man has done, as this video would probably go on for hours, but he’s basically done everything. Through his work, he’s achieved the astronomical net worth of $3.6 billion, and we think that he’s very deserving of being worth that much. Hats off to you, Steven.
