Celebrities are able to make the kind of money that most of us will never see in our lifetime, but with more money comes more responsibility! Handling that much money isn’t always easy and resisting the temptations involved with extreme wealth can be even harder. That’s why some stars have less millions than you’d expect, and some are even living on mere thousands, and some OWE more money than you could ever imagine. Check out this list of 9 celebrities whose net worth (or lack-of) would surprise you.
9. Nicolas Cage
Estimated Net Worth: $25 million. At first you might be impressed by a net worth of $25 million, but hold on just a minute. Nicholas Cage has been in the business for decades, has starred in some of the most popular movies of his generation, and was once one of the highest paid actors in the world taking in over $40 million each and every year (e.g. he earned $16 million for the movie Snake Eyes, $20 million for Gone in Sixty Seconds, $20 million for Windtalkers, and yet another $20 million for the film National Treasure). This means, he should have much more money than he actually does. So how does he ONLY have $25 million now? Well it probably has something to do with the fact that he has 15 mansions, 4 yachts, a private jet, a private island, and a 67 million year old dinosaur skull which he recently had to return to its rightful owner, the Mongolian government. Since the movie offers don’t seem to be rolling in these days, it might be a good idea for Nicolas Cage to learn to be a little more frugal with his money.
