Born With A Silver Spoon! Five Celebrities Who Inherited Big Bank Accounts

We have heard countless stories of famous people who went from rags to riches. However, there are some celebrities for whom casting calls, internships, and auditions are almost alien words. They are the ones who were born rich and experienced luxury much before they started acting in Hollywood. However, just because they were born with a silver spoon in their mouths doesn’t mean that these celebs didn’t have to exert any effort to reach superstardom. Like any other Hollywood A-lister, they also had their fair share of struggles, and they proved their mettle in their respective fields. We are not undermining their talent in any way, but it is a fact that these stars didn’t have to worry about their bank balance right from the beginning. Here are a few celebrities who were born rich, super rich:

Adam Levine

A nice guy, a popular youth icon, and a head-turner for many women, the Maroon 5 lead singer pulls in $6 million from sales and royalty from his albums and live performances alone. Did Adam struggle a lot during his early years in the industry? On the musical side, yes, but on the financial side, we guess no. His father is the key man behind M. Frederick, a much successful retail clothing chain. His net worth is in the ballpark of $50 million now, and while he may have been born rich, he still made a name for himself with a lot of hard work and passion.

Julia Louis Dreyfus

Reportedly, the Saturday Night Live actress has a net worth of more than $3 billion. She actually earned money which she didn’t even need by playing one of the central characters in the fun-packed television series Seinfeld. She also famously played the role of a divorced mother in The New Adventures of Old Christine. Julia’s great-great-grandfather established an international shipping and commodities business back in the 1880s and further development only increased the family wealth substantially. The Louis Dreyfus family still holds the major stake in that company. In fact, Julia can live a comfortable life even if she won’t work for the rest of her life.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga was born super rich and is still one of the richest American singers and musicians. She had the luxury of telling the world how much she abhorred going to the Tisch School of Arts of New York University. She grew up somewhere in Manhattan’s Upper West, sitting on a lot of money, while her father’s company was providing Wi-Fi access to a number of hotel groups in that area. Besides singing, she also loves designing and acting, and her net worth has reached almost $220 million. The controversial singer is probably the biggest name in pop music at this moment, with many of her singles topping the charts across several countries on a regular basis.

Jordin Sparks

She was not the slimmest or prettiest of the contenders in the American Idol Season 6, but Jordin was certainly one of the richest on the show. She inherited a lot (and we mean a lot ) from her mother’s side, and her former NFL star father’s solid work ethics and skills paved her way into the limelight. Jordin’s mother, Jodi is a successful entrepreneur and her father, Phillippi Sparks played for many top NFL teams before finally hanging his boots in 2001. She proved how easy and convenient it really becomes when you are playing with a boatload of inherited wealth.

Angelina Jolie

Now a single woman, Angelina hails from a family of two immensely successful actors in Hollywood — Marcheline Bertrand and Jon Voight. She was no stranger to the spotlight, and in no time, she ventured into the spotlight and became a name to be reckoned with in the industry. Through passion and hard work (not to mention, inherited wealth), Angelina managed to cross the $120-million mark when it comes to her net worth. The California native made her big screen debut in 1982 and went on to appear in a number of box-office hits throughout the years. Aside from acting, Angelina also dabbled in producing and directing films, and she has founded her own production company – Jolie Pas. Angelina makes it to this list for all the right reasons. She is super rich, and it shows.

If you think you have the talent to make it really big in Hollywood, you don’t have to be ultra-rich like the celebrities mentioned above. In fact, the majority of the actors you see on silver screens and billboards today come from humble backgrounds, with just a few exceptions.
