Ben Affleck is one of the world’s most well-known movie actors and filmmakers. He has appeared in more than 70 productions over the years and has many credits as a director, including for ‘Gone Baby Gone’ and ‘Argo.’ He has also received numerous awards for his efforts. So what is Ben Affleck’s estimated net worth in 2022?

Who Is Ben Affleck?

Benjamin Géza Affleck is the eldest son of photographer Timothy Byers Affleck and school teacher Christine Anne Affleck. He was born on August 15th of 1972 in Berkeley, California. He has a younger brother named Casey Affleck who is an actor in movies as well. His family moved from California while he was still young and he spent a significant portion of his childhood in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Affleck began acting while he was still very young, performing in his first production in 1981. His breakout role came in 1997 when he co-starred with his close friend Matt Damon in the movie ‘Good Will Hunting,’ which was based on a play written by the two actors. He is also recognized for his work on ‘Shakespeare in Love’ (1998) and ‘Pearl Harbor’ (2001).

Over the years, Affleck has received many accolades. He won a Golden Globe and a BAFTA award for his direction of ‘Argo.’ He has also received two more Golden Globe Awards, another BAFTA Award, two Academy Awards, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Ben Affleck’s Net Worth And Assets

As of August 2022, Celebrity Net Worth is reporting that Ben Affleck’s net worth is estimated to be roughly $150 Million. He purportedly makes as much as $15 Million for his starring movie roles. However, some of his salary information has not been disclosed, which makes it difficult to nail down an exact figure.

It has been disclosed that Affleck made $15 million for his role in the movie ‘Paycheck’ (2003). He apparently earned $10 million each for his roles in ‘The Sum of All Fears’ (2002) and ‘Changing Lanes’ (2002) and $6 million for his part in ‘Reindeer Games’ (2000). He has also received some smaller paydays, like the $600,000 he earned for ‘Good Will Hunting.’

His salary for his starring role as Batman in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ (2016) has not been disclosed. Despite the omission, Affleck is considered to be one of the richest actors around, ranking #37 on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 Earnings list. In 2023, he is scheduled to have a leading part in a movie titled ‘Triple Frontier’, which has a planned release date of March 15th.

Affleck also has other assets that contribute a significant amount to his total net worth. According to news reports, the actor sold the house and property he purchased in 2009 for $17.55 million to musician/television competition judge Adam Levine ten years later for $32 million. Affleck then decided to purchase a $19 million home in the same neighborhood. Today, he and his new wife Jennifer Lopez are seemingly interested in purchasing an $85 million mansion for their marital home.

Johnny Depp Net Worth

Have your eyes been glued to the Amber Heard / Johnny Depp defamation lawsuits? The jury reached a decision in early June 2022. How does that affect Johnny Depp’s net worth?

A Complicated Defamation Lawsuit

We discussed the lawsuit a lot already in last week’s post about Amber Heard’s net worth. So, we’ll just give a brief rundown again here:

  • The couple married in 2015.
  • In 2016, Amber Heard filed for divorce. She also filed for a restraining order, alleging domestic violence.
  • In 2018, she published an op-ed piece on domestic violence. In response, Johnny Depp filed a lawsuit against her for defamation.
  • In 2021, she filed a counter lawsuit, saying that he and his attorneys were guilty of defamation against her.
  • They went to trial in early 2022. He was asking for $50 million. She was asking for $100 million. Ultimately, he won a little over $10 million from her. She received only $2 million. This put her, as of now, at a celebrity net worth of NEGATIVE $6 million. We’ll look at how it’s impacted Johnny Depp’s net worth.

Lawsuits Are (And Are Not) About Money

Ultimately, lawsuits are about money. When you sue someone for defamation, you try to prove that they maliciously lied about you. So, you’re debating the facts of the case, but the decision that the jury makes is a financial one. They determine how you were damaged and award you money accordingly. In this instance, Depp was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and another $5 million in punitive damages. However, the state of Virginia places a cap on the latter at $350,000, so that’s all he’s entitled to out of the $5 million in punitive damages.

If you watched the trial, though, you probably weren’t watching because you cared about the financial outcome. Sure, that’s interesting, especially when you’re talking about damages in the millions. But people were transfixed by this case because it’s about domestic abuse, sexual violence, the #MeToo movement, relationships, mental health, and the power of celebrity. Vox.com has a comprehensive article about the details of the case if you’re not all caught up.

How the Trial Impacts Johnny Depp’s Net Worth

So, technically, Johnny Depp won a little over $10 million in this 2022 lawsuit. Since the two are already divorced, and the settlement for that is long complete, they no longer share income. So, in theory, he should be $10 million richer now. However, it might not be that simple. Amber Heard reportedly doesn’t have the money to pay for this. She has a few options including appealing to reduce the debt and filing for bankruptcy. So, ultimately, how this impacts Johnny Depp’s net worth is yet to be fully seen. That said, he’s worth a significant amount of money, so much so, in fact, that this $10 million is but a drop in the bucket.

Johnny Depp Net Worth and Income

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Johnny Depp earns about $20 million per film. In other words, he earns twice what Amber Heard owes him each time he stars in a movie. (Of course, due to the controversy surrounding the trial, his job offers and the salary that comes with them could shift.)

It says that he is one of the “highest-paid actors on the planet.” He’s earned over $100 million in a single year. In the three-year period from 2013 – 2016, he reportedly earned $650 million. Remember that it was during this time period that he married and divorced Amber Heard. They settled their divorce out of court; she reportedly received just $7 million.

Johnny Depp’s Acting Career

Johnny Depp has been an A-list actor for many, many years. Of course, he didn’t always earn $20 million per film. Nevertheless, he’s done well for himself for a really long time. Born in 1963, his first huge role was in the television series “21 Jump Street,” which started in 1987.  (He had already been in several other shows, shorts, and films including “Nightmare on Elm Street.”) Celebrity Net Worth reports that he earned about $45,000 per episode for that show.

Just as “21 Jump Street” was coming to an end, Depp starred in “Edward Scissorhands.” He has consistently starred in outstanding movies since the 1990s. These include, among many more:

  • “Benny and Joon”
  • “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?”
  • “Donnie Brasco”
  • “Sleepy Hollow”
  • “Chocolat”
  • “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”
  • “Sweeney Todd”
  • “Alice in Wonderland.”
  • “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”
  • “Murder on the Orient Express”
  • “From Hell”
  • “Finding Neverland”

Of course, he’s also famous for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in several versions/sequels of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” These roles contributed greatly to Johnny Depp’s net worth.

IMDB lists his most recent role as Johnny Puff in the TV mini-series “Puffins Impossible,” and says that he’s currently filming a series called just “Puffins.” It also has him listed as in pre-production for the film “Jeanne Du Barry.”

Johnny Depp’s Other Income

Like many celebrities, Depp has diversified his income, although most of Johnny Depp’s net worth does come from his acting. He’s a longtime musician, fronting bands before he even started making a name as an actor. He co-wrote and performed on two albums with Hollywood Vampires, a group he formed with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.

He is the founder and CEO of a production company that he started in 2004.

Johnny Depp’s Net Worth

So, what is this famous actor’s net worth? According to Celebrity Net Worth, Johnny Depp is worth about $150 million. This is in spite of the fact that he’s infamous for lavish spending. Celebrity Net Worth reports that he’s been known to spend over $3.6 million per year. The costs include dozens of staff including bodyguards, extensive travel on private jets, wine and art. Of course, some of what he spends is on assets that are worth money. He reportedly owns more than 45 cards, for example, as well as 14 homes. So, Johnny Depp earns a lot, he spends a lot, he has assets, and he’s ultimately worth about $150 million.

Miles Teller’s Acting Credits

Although he plays music, Miles Teller’s net worth comes from his acting work.

Miles Teller Movies

After the 2004 short, he waited a few years, and then he was in a series of other movie shorts beginning in 2007. In 2010 he was in his first feature film role as Jason in “Rabbit Hole.” From there, he went on to additional movies including:

  • Willard in 2011’s “Footloose”

Then in 2014, he was really busy. He was in four films that year: “Whiplash,” “That Awkward Moment,” “Divergent,” and “Two Night Stand.” He was also in a short called “9 Kisses.” “Divergent” was a very successful film series that contributed to Miles Teller’s net worth. In 2015, he was its second movie, “Insurgent.” There was also a video game short associated with that film. Then in 2016, he was in the third “Divergent” film called “Allegiant.”

In those years, he also had roles in “Fantastic Four,” “Get a Job,” “War Dogs, ” and “Bleed For This.” In 2o17, he began to slow down a little. He was in two films that year, “Thank You For Your Service” and “Only the Brave.” Then he didn’t do any acting roles in 2018.

However, things are starting to pick up again for Miles Teller. He was in a Taylor Swift music video this year, which gained him a lot of media attention. He is also in films coming out over the next couple of years including:

“Whiplash” was the other film that got him a lot of award-worthy attention. He won the Odyssey Award for Best Lead Actor. Additionally, he also received several other nominations.

Miles Teller and Keleigh Sperry

Miles Teller is married to model Keleigh Sperry. They dated for quite awhile and married in 2019. She is also an actress who appeared with him in the Taylor Swift music video. As aforementioned, he had drummed up some controversy because people were reporting that he hadn’t been vaccinated for COVID-19. This controversy spilled over on to Taylor Swift with fans asking why she was including him when he hadn’t been vaccinated. He eventually came out on Twitter and said that he is vaccinated, although that’s personal information he shouldn’t have to share. Miles and Keleigh have no children at this time.

What is Miles Teller’s Net Worth?

Miles Teller’s net worth comes primarily from his movie acting roles. Celebrity Net Worth reports that in 2016 he purchased a home worth about $3 million.

Dule Hill’s Net Worth

Dule Hill's Net Worth

Dule Hill, whose first name is Karim according to Wikipedia, is a television and film actor. Do you recognize him by name? What if we told you that he played the character of Gus on the TV show “Psych”? Or that he was Charlie Young on “The West Wing?” If you weren’t familiar with his name before, then it’s probably ringing a bell now. But do you have any guess as to Dule Hill’s net worth?

Who Is Dule Hill?

According to his IMDB biography, Dule Hill was born in New Jersey in 1975. His parents are Jamaican; Dad is an entrepreneur and mom a teacher. He has one older brother.

Although he ultimately has become well-known for his acting roles on both the small and big screen, Dule Hill started out as a singer and dancer. In fact, believe it or not, he was only three years old when he joined the Marie Wildey School of Dance. Three years old!

When he was still a young child, he got the role of Savion Glover’s understudy for Broadway’s “The Tap Dance Kid.” He went on to perform that lead role for over a year when the musical did its national tour. Wikipedia reports that at age 10 he went on Jerry Lewis’s MDA telethon to tap dance, which he ended up having to do to an unexpected song played live by the orchestra because they couldn’t find his music! IMDB adds that other musicals he was in while young include “Little Rascals,” “Black & Blue,” and “Shenandoah.”

Fun fact from IMDB: Hill still enjoys tap dancing. In fact, he did so with Savion Glover in 2001 at the 32nd NAACP Image Awards show.

High School and College

Although he was doing well on stage, he was also interested in screen acting. Hill started getting jobs in commercials. Then, he appeared in his first film while still in his senior year of high school. The film was “Sugar Hill.” He played the younger version of Wesley Snipes’ character in the film.

Before that year (1993) was over, he had started attending college while at the same time appearing on Jim Henson’s Saturday morning show “CityKids.” Although he had enough success behind him to have given acting a full-time go, education was important to him, perhaps because his mom is an educator. He decided to continue studying acting at William Esper Studio, honing his craft.

But at the same time he gave himself an edge up on life by also attending Seton Hall University where he studied business finance. Whether or not you go into business for a living, knowing about money is good common sense, and it’s surely helped as Dule Hill’s net worth has grown. That said, IMDB reports that ultimately he had to make a decision about whether to stay at Seton Hall of accept the starring role in Broadway’s “Bring in Da’ Noise, Bring In Da’ Funk.” He chose the latter, leaving college during his junior year. He spent over two years in that role and it served I’m well as far as networking and accolades.

Dule Hill’s TV and Film Appearances

We already know that Dule Hill’s first film was “Sugar Hill” in 1993. But what else has he done on the big and small screens that have contributed to Dule Hill’s net worth?

IMDB shows that he had small roles on a variety of different television shows and TV movies from 1993 – 1999. Then in 1999 he was in the film “She’s All That.” Additional films quickly followed including “Men of Honor” in 2000, “Holes” in 2003, “Sexual Life” in 2004, “Edmund” in 2005, and “The Guardian” in 2006.

Dule Hill’s Big TV Roles

At the same time, though, he was making a name for himself on “The West Wing.” He played Charlie Young from 1999 – 2006. In 2001 and 2002, he and the cast won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. They were nominated for that award in other years as well.

Then in 2006 he started playing the role of Burton “Gus” Guster on “Psych” which was just a web series at the time. However, it was quickly picked up as a TV series and he continued to play that role for about eight years. During those years, he also made appearances in several films and shorts.

After “Psych” came to an end, Dule Hill chalked up a number of other TV roles:

  • Larry Siefert in “Ballers”
  • Albert Cobb in “Doubt”
  • Alex Williams in “Suits”
  • Marcus Duane Wainwright III in “Black Monday”
  • Mr. Manny in the “Muppet Babies” TV short

Most recently, he’s playing the role of Bill Williams in the new version of “The Wonder Years.”

Additional Movie Mentions

In addition to the movies noted above, there have been three TV movie spinoffs of “Psych.” The first was in 2017. The second in 2020. And the final is filming now. It’s called “This Is Gus” so presumably he is the main focus of this movie. Depending how that does, it could potentially add to Dule Hill’s net worth.

Dule Hill also has three other movies from 2021: “Locked Down,” “Night of the Animated Dead” (which is a voice role), and “Hypnotic.” He sure is keeping busy!

Dule Hill’s Personal Life

Dule Hill married Canadian actress Nicole Lyn in 2004. She had been in some episodes of “The West Wing.” And fun fact, according to IMDB, she also started taking dance classes at age three. They were married for about eight years, divorcing without having any children.

In 2017, Dule Hill became engaged to Jazmyn Simon. She had been on the show “Ballers” with him. She already had a daughter, who Hill adopted. In 2019, the now-married couple had a son together, Levi Dule Hill. Ecelebrityspy reports that the family lives in a 4000 square foot house. It was a 1970s house that they renovated, and you can actually see the renovation on the show “Styling Hollywood” on Netflix.

Dule Hill’s Net Worth

Okay, so we know how Dule Hill started off in life. We know about his early Broadway work and his ongoing work in TV and film. But do we know Dule Hill’s net worth? Celebrity Net Worth is typically our most accurate source for this type of information. They say that Dule Hill’s net worth is $8 million. Ecelbrityspy makes a guess that Dule Hill earned  somewhere between $200,000 and $500,000 per episode of “Psych” but we have not been able to confirm the accuracy of that guess.

What’s your favorite role that Dule Hill has played?
