Amber Heard Net Worth

If you follow celebrity news, then you were probably glued to the Amber Heard / Johnny Depp court case. The case was trending. Court news coverage got higher ratings than any time in the recent past. People had many opinions about all aspects. The case was about mental health, domestic violence, and defamation. However, when it comes right down to the final judgment, the court case was about money. Johnny Depp essentially won the case in June 2022. What does that mean for Amber Heard’s Net Worth?

Who Is Amber Heard?

Amber Heard is an actress, and of course, the ex-wife of actor Johnny Depp. According to IMDB, she was born in April 1986 in Texas. She dropped out of school as a teenager, moving to New York in an attempt to start a modeling career. She subsequently moved to Los Angeles where she began her acting career.

Amber Heard’s Acting Career

Most of the Amber Heard net worth comes from her work as an actress. Beginning in 2004, she started having small roles in both TV and films. Early credits include appearances on the television shows “Jack and Bobby,” “The Mountain,” “The OC,” and “Criminal Minds.” At the same time, she had appearances in films like “Friday Night Lights,” “Drop Dead Sexy,” and “Spin.”

Her first recurring television role was as Greta Matthews in the show “Hidden Palms” in 2007. She continued to appear in many small and big screen roles over the ensuing years. Her next recurring TV role was as Maureen in “The Playboy Club” in 2011. That same year she hit her stride with her first major role in 2008’s “Pineapple Express.” The following year, she was in “Zombieland” and “The Stepfather.” 2009 was also the year she started filming 2011’s “The Rum Diary,” which is where she met Johnny Depp. As Vox.com explains, she had started “playing the love interest of A-listers.”

In 2015, she was in “The Adderall Diaries” and “Magic Mike XXL.” In 2017, she began to play the lead role of Mera in the “Aquaman” franchise. This franchise includes “Justice League,” “Aquaman,” “Zack Snyder’s Justice League,” and “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” which is currently in post-production and is due out in 2023. As you can tell, the role of Mera has contributed significantly to Amber Heard’s net worth.

What Is Amber Heard’s Income?

Celebrity Net Worth reported that prior to the defamation trial with Johnny Depp, which will dig into shortly, Amber Heard’s net worth was about $2.5 million. They attributed it to her acting career, with some of the numbers as follows:

  • She earned $10 million in pre-tax income between 2013-2019.
  • In 2019 alone, she earned $3 million.
  • Much of her money comes from the Aquaman franchises. She received about half a million for the first movie, twice that first the next movie, and double that again for the third movie. She was reportedly guaranteed $3-$4 million for the fourth film.
  • In terms of what she earns from television appearances, she reportedly earned nearly $2 million for her nine episodes of “The Stand.”
  • In addition to acting income, she receives money from celebrity endorsements. For example, she earned over $1.5 million from a two-year contract with L’Oreal.

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp at the Art Of Elysium’s 9th Annual Heaven Gala held at the 3LABS in Culver City, USA on January 9, 2016.

Vox.com explains that Amber Heard met Johnny Depp in 2009 on the set of “The Rum Diary.” They were both dating other people at the time. However, three years later, they were both out of those other relationships, and they had begun to date one another. They were married in 2015. One year later, Amber Heard filed for divorce. A few days after filing, she filed for a restraining order against Johnny Depp.

That started the ball rolling toward the recent trial. She alleged domestic violence, and Depp’s lawyer immediately issued a statement accusing her of lying in order to set herself up for a good financial divorce settlement. In August 2016, the two settled their divorce out of court. Reportedly, Heard received $7 million from the divorce, which she stated at the time she planned to donate to charity. Vox.com reports that she said she’d give half of it to the ACLU and that the ACLU confirms that she did donate, but only $1.3 million, which is less about half of what she’d said she would give.

Depp’s Lawsuit Against Amber Heard

In 2018, in the way of the #MeToo movement, Amber Heard was named an ACLU ambassador for women’s rights. In that role, she wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post about her experience with sexual violence. She didn’t specifically name Depp as her abuser, but it appeared to be implied. In March 2019, Depp sued her for $50 million for defamation because of that article. Essentially, he said that she new that she was lying about domestic violence when she published her 2018 article, and that she lied with malicious intent.

Note: there have been two similar lawsuits in which Depp sought damages for defamation. This US case against Heard is the second one. The first one, in 2020, was a UK lawsuit against The Sun for publishing domestic abuse claims. Heard testified for The Sun and Depp lost the UK case.

Amber Heard’s Lawsuit Against Johnny Depp

Things don’t end there, however. In January 2021, Amber Heard filed her own lawsuit, seeking $100 million from Johnny Depp. This, too, was a defamation lawsuit. She said that Depp, through his lawyers, alleged domestic violence by her that he knew wasn’t true. The trial that finally concluded in June 2022 covered both Depp’s lawsuit against Amber Heard and her countersuit against him.

How Does Trial Judgment Affect Amber Heard’s Net Worth?

Vox.com explains that as of June 1, 2022, Johnny Depp won $15 million in damages from his trial against Amber Heard. It’s a little bit more complicated than that, however. Of that $15 million, he won $5 million in punitive damages. However, the state of Virginia caps punitive damages at $350,000. Therefore, even though he won $5 million, he’s actually only able to collect $350,000. However, the other $10 million of compensatory damages isn’t capped. So, in total, he’s able to collect $10.35 million from the lawsuit. So, he receives about 1/5 of the $50 million he initially sued for.

Amber Heard asked for $100 million. The jury didn’t find her arguments nearly as compelling as they found Depp’s. They only awarded her $2 million in damages, for one instance in which Depp defamed her through his attorney. So, as far as the lawsuit goes, she effectively comes out at a little more than $8 million lost. That’s essentially how the trial judgment will affect Amber Heard’s net worth.

What Is Amber Heard’s Net Worth?

Celebrity Net Worth reports that prior to the trial, Amber Heard’s net worth was approximately $2.5 million. As a result, with the current judgment against her, they now put the 2022 Amber Heard net worth at NEGATIVE $6 million. However, they note that there are some factors that might alter this, not the least of which could be a reduction in damages if the case goes to appeals. Her homeowner’s insurance might cover some of her costs, but this is unclear. If she isn’t able to pay the money owed, and the damages aren’t dismissed, she might consider bankruptcy, although that outcome is unclear at this time.

Todd Chrisley’s Net Worth

Todd Chrisley's Net Worth

Todd Chrisley is an interesting character. He’s a real estate tycoon whose had a lot of different financial ups and downs. He’s also the father starring in the reality television show “Chrisley Knows Best.” People love the drama and love to hate him for everything from his tendency towards hypochondria to his bad relationship with some of his children. In addition to real estate and reality TV, he makes money as a television producer, a singer, and more. What is Todd Chrisley’s net worth?

Who Is Todd Chrisley?

Todd Chrisley is just a human but he’s also larger than life. Perhaps that’s why he was approached to turn his life into a reality TV show. He was just living life, as a self-made millionaire in the real estate industry and head of a chaotic household. Country Living reports that production companies said his “crazy family” would make good TV, and that nine out of ten approached networks put in an offer for the show. Thus began “Chrisley Knows Best,” a reality television show that’s had nine seasons.

Todd Chrisley’s Families

You can’t separate the man from the family, because it’s the family drama that most intrigues the viewing public. Chrisley has three families: his family of origin, his first marriage with two kids, and his current marriage with 3+ kids.

Todd Chrisley’s Childhood

Todd is actually Chrisley’s middle name. His first name is Michael. He was born in 1969 in Georgia. We see his mother Nanny Faye on the family TV show regularly. In fact, some say she really makes the show. She had two other sons, but one of them died when he was only four months old. Todd’s brother has coped with cancer as well as a very public bitter divorce.

Todd Chrisley’s father died of cancer in 2012 and thus was never on the show but he and Nanny Faye were married until his death. His mother has had her own cancer scare, and his second wife has battled cancer as well.

Todd Chrisley’s First Marriage

When Todd was 21, he met his first wife, Teresa Terry, who is a couple of years younger than him. They married and had two children: Lindsie and Kyle. They divorced in 1996 amid allegations that he was physically and verbally abusive to her.

Todd has a notoriously challenging relationship with both children from this marriage. Last year when Lindsie ended her nine-year marriage, she took flak from Todd on social media, although the two weren’t speaking to each other. She reports that therapy has taught her that she just needs to set boundaries and this likely means not having a relationship with her father anymore. She used to be on the family’s television show but left several years ago amidst their seemingly irreconcilable differences.

Todd and Julie Chrisley

Todd is married to his wife Julie who stars on the show with him. Together, they have three children: Chase, Savannah, and Grayson. They also have full custody of Chloe, his son Kyle’s daughter. He and Kyle continue to have challenges getting along, drama that plays out frequently in the media. The world has watched Todd and Julie’s children grow up through their television show and on social media.

Two of Todd and Julie’s three children have their own spin-off show, “Growing Up Chrisley,” which launched in 2017.

Todd Chrisley’s Careers

These days, he’s primarily known as that drama dad from reality television, of course, but there’s more to Todd Chrisley than that. He started off as a real estate tycoon though which he made, and lost, millions of dollars. Some of his other endeavors include:

  • Singing. He’s a recording artist who had a Billboard charting country song with Sara Evans back in 2016.
  • Executive producer. He’s on both sides of the camera when it comes to reality TV ever since producing Netflix’s “Demarcus Family Rules,” which stars Rascal Flatts musician Jay Demarcus and his family.
  • Podcast. Todd and Julie have a podcast called Chrisley Confessions. This launched in 2018.

Todd Chrisley’s Net Worth, Income and Financial Troubles

Todd Chrisley’s net worth is not straightforward. He has a lot of money coming in from his various endeavors. However, he also spends a lot of money. Fans of the show have seen exorbitant spending over the years, including a lot of money that Todd devotes to his personal health care. For example, a couple of years ago he rented a hyperbaric chamber to help maximize his health. Additionally, because much of his money is wrapped up in real estate, he naturally has issues with the ups and downs of that industry. And he’s also had tax woes over the years.

Todd Chrisley’s Financial Troubles

Country Living reports that in August 2012, Todd Chrisley filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. A real estate investment had gone bad and he was nearly $50 million in debt. Note that this was a couple of years before he became a reality television star.

In 2014, Todd Chrisley reported defaulted on a mortgage for his mother Nanny Faye’s home. The bank had started the foreclosure process, as he had missed over $30,000 in payments. However, that issue was ultimately resolved.

In 2017, he made headlines for income tax problems. He was accused of not filing state income taxes, thus facing charges of tax evasion exceeding $2 million. Eventually the state of Georgia settled with him for about $150,000.

Todd Chrisley’s Houses

Chrisley is involved in real estate for business. He also pays for his mother’s home. And then there’s his home. When the reality show first started, he and his family lived in Georgia, in a huge 30,000 square foot home. However, they eventually moved to Tennessee, where they downgraded. That said, their downgraded home still exceeds 10,000 square feet. They live large. Nicki Swift reports that Todd Chrisley once said that the family has been known to spend over $300,000 on clothing in one year alone.

Todd Chrisley’s Net Worth

So, Chrisley makes (and loses) money in real estate as well as through reality television, his other side jobs, and presumably some social media work. With all of that in mind, what is Todd Chrisley’s net worth?

As of 2020, Nicki Swift reported that wife Julie is worth about $3 million but that Todd Chrisley’s net worth is actually NEGATIVE $5 million. Wealthy Genius, Distractify, and Celebrity Net Worth all report that same amount as of 2021 and 2022 (depending on the source.)

Todd Chrisley might be the first celebrity net worth we’ve reported on that is actually in the negative!

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?

Carey Mulligan’s Net Worth

Carey Mulligan's net worth

Are you a fan of Carey Mulligan? She’s a beautiful and talented British actress known for both film and television roles. As the New York Times reports, it often seems like she’s slotted only into period pieces. However, she’s also proven her talent in contemporary roles. Some of the films she’s been in have done astoundingly at the box office. Which, of course, makes us wonder: What is Carey Mulligan’s net worth?

Who Is Carey Mulligan?

According to her IMDB biography, Carey Miulligan was born in Westminster, London in 1985. She has Welsh, English, and Irish ancestry. Her parents are a hotel manager and a university lecturer. She appears to have one sibling, a brother.

Carey Mulligan did theater acting when she was in school. She was a student head of drama and performed in “Sweet Charity.” Obviously, she knew that acting was something that interested her. Mulligan received her first breakout film role in 2005 when she played Kitty in “Pride and Prejudice.” IMDB says she scored that Rolle when Julian Fellowes came to speak at her school. She was bold enough to introduce herself. He, in turn, introduced her to a casting assistant that was at work on “Pride and Prejudice.” The rest is history.

Carey Mulligan’s Acting Credits

Once Mulligan did well in that role, she began to land many other roles. She’s what film or TV appearances almost every year since, with a few exceptions. As aforementioned, she’s typically cast in period pieces. However, when New York Times asked her if she felt typecast, she said that more than anything she feels like the writers of contemporary movies don’t often create the kind of complex female roles she enjoys playing. So it’s a little of this and a little of that.

Carey Mulligan’s Top Films

Vogue lists 13 films that they think showcase just how amazingly talented Carey Mulligan is. Of course, they start with “Pride and Prejudice.” The other dozen are:

  1. 2009’s “An Education”
  2. 2010’s “Never Let Me Go”
  3. 2011’s “Drive”
  4. 2011’s “Shame” (one of her few films set in modern times)
  5. 2013’s “The Great Gatsby”
  6. 2013’s “Inside Llewyn Davis”
  7. 2015’s “Far From the Maddening Crowd”
  8. 2015’s “Suffragette”
  9. 2017’s “Mudbound”
  10. 2018’s “Wildlife”
  11. 2020’s “Promising Young Woman”
  12. 2021’s “The Dig”

“Promising Young Woman” Controversy

We can’t go any further without talking about the film “Promising Young Woman.” Because, if you weren’t familiar with Carey Mulligan before this film, chances are you might have heard about her after it. The film is about a woman spiraling into revenge darkness in an era of toxic masculinity. Basically, after secondary trauma from a friend’s college rape, her life ends up going off the rails. During this process, she decides to go to bars feign drunkenness, see if men will attempt to take advantage of her, and then exact revenge on them when they do. It’s a rich role with a lot of intensity. And it’s a role that addresses a lot of major issues in our culture today.

When it premiered at Sundance in 2017, Variety wrote a piece about it. And the piece basically said, “well, she did a good job. She’s talented. However, she’s really not pretty enough to play this role.” Mulligan has been very outspoken about this experience. She’s also opened up about different ways that the Hollywood industry continues to perpetuate sexism upon women of all ages, even in the age of awareness about #MeToo. In the New York Times article, she emphasizes how many times she’s read a script that describes the female as “beautiful but doesn’t know it,” and how minimizing and degrading that can be.

So, as we can see, Carey Mulligan is an actress who has a lot of talent, for both period pieces and contemporary roles. In particular, she’s strong at playing complex women in challenging situations, both historically and in modern times. Moreover, she’s become a strong woman in her thirties speaking out for herself and other women about what she sees as problematic in the industry.

Carey Mulligan’s TV Roles

We can’t talk about Carey Mulligan’s net worth without also mentioning her roles on a number of different TV shows over the years. These include:

  • Ada in 2005’s “Bleak House”
  • Emily Pritchard in 2006’s “The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard”
  • Sunny in 2015’s “The Walker”
  • DI Kip Glaspie in 2018’s “Collateral”

She’s also appeared in one or two episodes of “Marple,” “Waking the Dead,” “Trial & Retribution,” and other shows.

Carey Mulligan’s Recent Work

As aforementioned, Vogue named her 2021 film “The Dig” among her top films. And “Promising Young Woman” came out just the year before. IMDB also lists her for four additional films for 2022:

  • “Spaceman” which is in post-production
  • “She Said” which is currently filming
  • “Maestro” which is pre-production
  • “Fingernails” which is recently announced
So, with all of that coming up, we can expect Carey Mulligan’s net worth is only going to rise.

Carey Mulligan’s Personal Life

Before we get into Carey Mulligan’s net worth, let’s just talk a small bit more about her personal life. According to IMDB, she was childhood pen pals Marcus Mumford. He would go on to become well known for the band Mumford & Sons. And they would reconnect as adults and marry. Once they reconnected, they were engaged for less than a year before marrying in 2012. They had a daughter three years later and a son two years after that.

One of her grandparents died before she was born. Two others die din the early 1990’s when she was just a young child. Her remaining grandparent, her maternal grandmother, lived until 2017. However, she developed Alzheimer’s in 2020. As a result, Mulligan serves as an ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society.

What Is Carey Mulligan’s Net Worth?

So really she’s an interesting person and a talented actress, right? But what is Carey Mulligan’s net worth? Various sources such as Celebrity Net Worth place Carey Mulligan’s net worth at about $16 million. StyleCaster notes that she’s starred in some huge-grossing films. For example, “The Great Gatsby” earned over $350 million. Her first big film, “Pride and Prejudice” earned over $125 million. Of course, celebrity net worth doesn’t always correlate with box office earnings. But with her career continuing to soar, we expect Carey Mulligan’s net worth will likely continue to rise as well.
