4. John Travolta
Estimated Net Worth: $170 Million. The latter part of the ’70s was all about Travolta, with hit flicks like Saturday Night Fever, Grease, and Urban Cowboy, as well as a music career and a Billboard number-ten single with “Let Her In.” And while John struggled to keep his success going throughout the 1980s, he reprised his career in the early 90s with Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. This led to other noteworthy roles like Get Shorty, which earned him a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical of Comedy, Face/Off and Hairspray. This year he’ll appear in the highly anticipated The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and the action film I am Wrath. All of this success has earned him a huge fortune of $170 million, a sum the Church of Scientology is pretty happy about…
