Meet the World’s Richest Actor Worth $3 Billion, Unknown to Most

Money and fame often go hand in hand, bringing to mind celebrities like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie, among others.

Yet, there exists an actor wealthier than Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts who remains largely unknown to the public.

This is because the world’s richest actor has been largely inactive in the industry for many years, only making occasional appearances since stepping back from the limelight.

Jami Gertz might not be a household name for many. Known for her role in “The Lost Boys,” Gertz’s net worth reached an astonishing $3 billion in 2023.

You might wonder, “Who is she?” Despite being a familiar face in the industry for years.

One online user admitted to not recognizing her, saying, “I’m off to Google first because I don’t know who this person is.”

Another questioned her recent absence from the Hollywood scene: “How come I hardly see Jami Gertz in movies? Did she make it from acting, or does she have other incomes?”

Indeed, while Gertz is recognized for roles in movies like “Twister” and shows such as “Seinfeld,” “Modern Family,” and “This Is Us,” she has broadened her horizons beyond acting since she first stepped into the limelight in 1981.

She made a brief return in 2022 with “I Want You Back,” but for the most part, Gertz has stayed out of the public eye, quietly amassing her substantial wealth.

Jami Gertz’s substantial wealth stems not just from her acting career but also from savvy investments. Together with her husband, they are part owners of the NBA team, the Atlanta Hawks, and minority owners of the Milwaukee Beavers.

Their investments have proven highly successful, prompting cheers of “get your bag, girl!”

Despite criticisms suggesting that Gertz married into money—her husband is billionaire investor Tony Ressler—the couple is not just focused on wealth accumulation. They are also deeply charitable.

In 2012, the Giving Back Fund recognized Gertz and her husband as the top donors to charity, following their $10 million donation to the Ressler-Gertz Foundation. This foundation supports the arts, education, health, and Jewish organizations.

While the couple has secured a significant financial cushion, they have also made a considerable impact through their philanthropy, contributing to many worthy causes over the years.

Can you think of any other celebrity who donates as much? I’ll wait.
