Zhang Ziyi Net Worth $100 million

Born in Beijing, China, Zhang is the daughter of Zhang Yuanxiao, an economist, and Li Zhousheng, a teacher. Zhang’s passion for the arts started at a very young age, when she began studying dance at the age of eight. When Zhang was 11, she enrolled at the Beijing Dance Academy, a boarding school where she harnessed her passion for dance. Later on her efforts paid off when she won the national youth dance championship at the age of 15. Her popularity for winning the competition led her to star in various commercials.

In 1996, Zhang decided to focus on acting, and started attending the Central Academy of Drama in Beijing. While studying, her career as an actress was also starting to gain some traction, and when she was 19, she was able to book her first movie, “The Road Home” directed by Zhang Yimou. Zhang thought that she was just auditioning for a shampoo commercial, but Yimou’s main purpose was to find a star for his film. Zhang’s starring role in “The Road Home” officially started her acting career, and also her net worth.

Not long after, Zhang enjoyed commercial success, when in 2000 she starred alonsideg Chow Yun Fat and Michelle Yeoh in the critically acclaimed movie “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” directed by Ang Lee. The movie catapulted her to new heights, earning her awards as Best Supporting Actress Award from Toronto Film Critics Association Awards, Independent Spirit Awards, and Chicago Film Critics Association Awards among others.

Opportunities in Hollywood then opened up for Zhang. In 2001, she appeared in her first American movie, “Rush Hour 2” with Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. In 2002, she came back to China and appeared in movies including “Hero”, and in 2004 she “House of Flying of Daggers”. Both movies became critically and commercially successful, and were recognized by various award-giving bodies.

In 2005, she starred in the movie adaptation of the book “Memoirs of a Geisha”, in which she once again acted with Michelle Yeoh and other notable Asian actors. The movie was also a commercial success in the west, and garnered her plenty of recognition.

After appearing in a couple of Hollywood movies like “The Horsemen”, Zhang also made sure that she continued making films in her homeland. Some of her most notable films in China have included “Sophie’s Revenge”, “Love for Life”, and “The Grandmaster” for which she won 12 Best Actress awards, making her the most awarded actress for a single movie.

Aside from being an actress, Zhang is also a model, and brand ambassador for products including Omega Watches, Maybelline, Visa, and Garnier that also helped in raising her net worth.

Today, Zhang is still active in acting, with her most recent works including “Run for Love” and “The Wasted Time”. She will be coming back to Hollywood with an upcoming film entitled “God Particle”.

In terms of her personal life, Zhang married Wang Feng, a Chinese rock musician, in 2015, and together they have a daughter.

Born Aarti Majmudar on the 3rd March 1978, in Connecticut USA, she is an actress, best known to the world as Priya Koothrappali in the TV series “The Big Bang Theory”, and as Henna in the film “Today’s Special”, among many other differing roles she has secured so far in her career.

Have you ever wondered how rich Aarti Mann is, as of early 2018? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Mann’s net worth is as high as $400,000, an amount earned through her successful career, active since the mid- 2000s.

Aarti Mann Net Worth $400,000

Of Indian ancestry, Aarti alongside her brother Nishad, and sister Kruti moved a lot within Pennsylvania with her family when she was still a toddler, including living in Pittsburgh, Mt. Lebanon, Wexford and Fox Chapel. She went to Shady Side Academy located in Point Breeze, and after matriculation enrolled at New York University, from which she earned a degree in film writing and directing.

Aarti made her professional acting debut in 2006, in the film “The Memsahib”, directed by her sister Kruti, who is a filmmaker, who was mainly responsible for luring Aarti towards the performing arts, since their parents are doctors and wanted all their children to follow in their footsteps. After her debut, Aarti appeared in a commercial for Volvo, and started auditioning for new film and television roles. However, she secured only minor roles in such TV series as “Quarterlife” (2008), and “Heroes” (2009), until in 2010 luck smiled upon her as she was chosen for the part of Priya Koothrappali in the TV comedy series “The Big Bang Theory” (2010-2011), which increased her net worth to a large degree. Her career now got underway, and in 2012 she featured in the comedy-drama film “The Monogamy Experiment”, starring Amy Rider, Edgar Morais and Tohory Masamune, while in 2015 she made a notable appearance in the romantic comedy film “I’ll See You in My Dreams”, with Blythe Danner, Martin Starr and Sam Elliott in the lead roles, which further increased her net worth.

She is now working on the drama film “Love Sonia”, starring Demi Moore, Freida Pinto and Mark Duplass, scheduled for release later this year, so her net worth is certainly still rising.

When it comes to her personal life, Aarti is married to Purvesh Mankad, with whom she has a daughter. She now resides in Los Angeles with her family.

Milla Jovovich Net Worth

Published

on

Milla Natasha Jovovich was born on 17 December 1975, in Kiev, Ukraine (then in the USSR), and is a model, actress and singer, perhaps best known for her breakthrough role in the film “The Fifth Element” in 1997, with Bruce Willis and Gary Oldman.

So just how rich is Milla Jovovich, as of late 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Milla has a net worth of over $45 million, accumulated from her various career elements spanning almost 30 years since she began modelling in 1987.

Milla Jovovich Net Worth $45 Million

Milla had a really unusual childhood, maybe that’s one of the reasons for her multi-million dollar net worth. Jovovich started her carrier in modeling from the early age of nine, a few years after she and her parents moved from Ukraine, which at that time belonged to the Soviet Union, to Los Angeles, California, in 1980. She even dropped out of school at the age of 12, when Gene Lemuel discovered her, and she signed a contract with Prima Modeling Agency. Milla Jovovich  was covered by magazines including Vogue, Glamour, Madmoiselle, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, and has been advertising brands including L’oreal, Christian Dior, Calvin Klein, Donna Koran, Revlon for many years.

However, exclusive looks and beauty was not the only value she had: Milla Jovovich has a great voice, a talent to write songs, design fashion and find herself in acting as well. Milla started her acting career in 1988 in the film “Two Moon Junction”, but the roles that gave this girl much more attention were in “Dazed and Confused” in 1993 and “The Fifth Element” in 1997 directed by Luc Besson, in which she worked with Bruce Willis. Of course, subsequently all five films based on “Resident Evil” made Milla Jovovich’s popularity and net worth go through the roof. The original movie was so successful that it was even turned into a video game.

Between her acting in those two movies, Milla tried the shoes of a singer and a song writer, and released her debut album – “The Divine Comedy – which was really appreciated by the audience and critics and even received positive feedback from Rolling Stone magazine’s, John McAlley; in his opinion the album was remarkable. In 1999 Milla Jovovich became a member of the band named Plastic Has Memory, and performed some gigs in New York and Las Vegas, but unfortunately not with her new band, and Milla has never released a second album.

As for her career in fashion, Milla launched her first line in 2003, and her brand was successful until 2008 when she decided to close her business because of lack of time, which is perhaps no surprise, assuming that all of her free time was taken-up by her daughter Ever Gabo Anderson, who was born in 2007.

As for other details of Milla’s personal life, aside from several well-known relationships, she has married three times, all husbands met when taking some part in films in which she was acting. She first married Shawn Andrews in 1992, which was apparently quickly annulled by her mother; ironically, he and Milla were starring in “Dazed and Confused”! The second was with the director of “The Fifth Element” – Luc Besson (1997-99), and she has been married to Paul W. S. Anderson, who worked with Jovovich on the set of “Resident Evil”, since 2009, and he is the father of her two daughters. The family is based in Los Angeles.

Milla is something of a philanthropist too, and often participates in and supports various charities including UNICEF, World Education, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and many more.
