Jane Birkin Net Worth $20 Million

To begin with, she comes from a family that made its fortune in the industry of lace in Nottinghamshire. Her great-aunt, Winifred May Birkin, then married with William Dudley Ward, was mistress of the Prince of Wales. Jane Birkin is the second daughter of Major David Birkin and actress and singer Judy Campbell. Jane turned to theatre, following in the footsteps of her mother.

At the beginning of the 1960s, she entered the pop scene of swinging London and made her debut as an actress at the age of 17. At that time she met the composer John Barry, who encouraged her to debut as a singer and with whom she ended up marrying at age 19. In the film “Blow Up” (1966) by Michelangelo Antonioni, the actress carried out her first controversial scene (appearing naked), which caused a great scandal in her native city. After the marriage failure and the birth of her daughter Kate in 1967, Jane moved to France. There she met Serge Gainsbourg, with whom she formed one of the fashionable couples in the Parisian scene, where they became famous in 1969 with the song “Je t’aime … moi non plus”, a sensual and provocative song that became worldwide success. In 1971, her daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg was born.

A fragile, tenuous voice remained as her hallmark, and was intelligently used by Gainsbourg, who adapted the songs to Jane’s voice, composing several works especially for her to interpret. They stayed together for 12 years, becoming a popular couple for the public and in the media. In the early 1980s, her personal and professional life suffered a severe setback due to her divorce from Serge Gainsbourg. (In 1982, she had another daughter, Lou Doillon, with the French film director Jacques Doillon.) Serge Gainsbourg continued composing for Birkin. The album “Baby alone in Babylon” was a great success in 1983. In 1985, she won the Best Actress Award at the Orleans Film Festival for her role in the film “Leave All Fair” (1985) as well as the Best Actress Award in the Venice Film Festival for her role in the film “Dust” (1985). In 1987, she gave her first concert in the Paris. She has also performed at the Casino de Paris in 1991, two months after the death of Gainsbourg and dedicated the concert to him.

In 1998, Birkin released her first album without Serge Gainsbourg “A la légère” with songs written by 12 contemporary French composers. Since 1998, she has released her own recordings, some of them with famous artists such as Djamel Ben Yelles, Manu Chao, Brian Molko, Bryan Ferry and Beth Gibbons.

Birkin was an honorary member of the festival Viennale 2005. In her honour, some of her films were performed during the festival, such as “Je t’aime”, “La Pirate” and “Daddy Nostalgia. In 2006, her album “Fictions” was released in which she again collaborated with contemporary musicians such as Beth Gibbons, Johnny Marr and Rufus Wainwright.

Finally, as previously mentioned, in the personal life of Birkin, she was married to John Barry (1965 – 1968). She partnered Serge Gainsbourg (1968–1980) and Jacques Doillon (1982–1991). Jane has three children Kate Barry, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon.

After this performance, Karyn Parsons had numerous roles in movies and TV shows. Many viewers also know Karyn Parsons as an actress from “Lush Life” – she not only appeared in it, but was also the co-producer, co-writer and co-creator of the show. However, in the show business industry Karyn has been working for a relatively short span of time, and maybe that is the reason her net worth isn’t rather higher.

Stacey Dash Net Worth



Stacey Lauretta Dash was born on 20 January 1967, in The Bronx, New York City USA, of Barbadian, Mexican and Afro-American descent. Stacey Dash is an actress in movies and on TV, perhaps best known for her parts in the TV series “The Cosby Show“ in the 1980s, and more recently “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”.

So just how rich is Stacey Dash? Stacy is now relatively comfortable with an estimated worth of $10 million, which wealth she has earned by starring in numerous movies and TV shows during a career in the entertainment industry spanning more than 30 years.

Stacey Dash Net Worth $10 Million

Stacy Dash made her debut in 1982 when she appeared in “Farrell for the People” alongside Ed O‘Neill. Then followed such famous shows as “The Cosby Show“, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “TV 101“. Her movie career started with the Richard Pryor film “Moving” (1988). The 80‘s were actually a really successful period for the young actress, since her other two movies, “Mo’ Money” and “Renaissance Man”, were also big hits. Her real big break, however, was in 1995 when she appeared in Amy Heckerling’s “Clueless” as Dionne Marie Davenport. The comedy, which was based on Jane Austen‘s novel “Emma”, was very well received and grossed $55 million, thus increasing Dash’s net worth considerably. The film also made her and fellow actresses  Brittany Murphy and Alicia Silverstone true international stars, probably more so as it was soon made into TV series and Dash reprised her role as Dionne. The series ran from 1996 till 1999, and also featured actress and singer Cher. During that period, Stacy also appeared in films like the crime drama “Cold Around the Heart” (1997) and comedy “Personals” (1999). Naturally all of these appearances enhanced Stacy’s net worth.

Stacey Dash is also known for her appearances in music videos. In 2001 she was a part of the music video for the Carl Thomas song “Emotional”, and in 2004 she appeared alongside Kanye West in the music video for his single “All Falls Down.” At the same time Dash continued to have a successful film career with movies “American Primitive”, “I Could Never Be Your Woman”, “Nora’s Hair Salon II”, “Ghost Image” and “Fashion Victim”. She did not, however, forget television and appeared in the series “Single Ladies” in the role of Valerie Stokes but, unfortunately, she did not return for the second season. She was also a part of the reality TV show “Celebrity Circus”, in  which celebrities had to perform circus tricks. Dash was one of the finalists, finishing second after Antonio Sabato, Jr. In addition, she also had guest roles in “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “The Game”. All these roles in movies and TV shows helped to increase her overall net worth.

Besides her acting career, Stacey Dash also has her own lingerie line “Letters of Marque” and posed for Playboy in 2006.

In her personal life, Stacy Dash was first married to Brian Lovell(1999-2000), and then James Maby(2005-06). She married Emmanuel Xuereb in 2007, but divorced him in 2010 and asked for restraining order against him, claiming physical abuse. Stacy also has a son fathered by R&B singer Christopher Williams, and a daughter (born 2003). She is very open about her political views and often uses Twitter to criticise certain public figures. Interestingly, she supported Barack Obama in 2008, but in the presidential elections of 2012 she expressed her support for Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
