Actresses that are famous enough to be widely recognized are probably pretty rich. They get paid hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars for acting in films and TV shows. However, the very top tier of actresses, the ones we’ve compiled for this list, are on a whole other level. They are worth tens of millions, hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars. Some have made their fortunes by being paid obscene amounts of money for their acting work. Others have business ventures and inheritances that have added to their already great fortunes. Here are the 30 wealthiest actresses in America.
