Slide 1 of 5 | View On One Page

It’s no big secret that men in Hollywood (and the rest of the world) tend to make more money than women who have very similar jobs. So, these highly successful celebrity women who make more than their spouses are worth noticing. Some of these couples make similar amounts, and some of the differences are very dramatic, especially the relationships in which the men are not quite as famous as their wives. The women on this list either have a higher salary, a higher net worth (or both) than their spouse.

9. Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway’s acting career has continued to grow in recent years as she took on memorable roles in more popular movies like Catwoman in Dark Knight Rises, and Fantine in Les Misérables. Her net worth is about $35 million. Her husband, Adam Shulman is an actor with a net worth of about $1 million.
