Cast Of Notting Hill: How Much Are They Worth Now?
Notting Hill is a 1999 British romantic comedy that broke the box office in terms of financial success and critical review. From the same creators as Four Funerals and a Wedding, the film hosts two huge Hollywood stars, Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts, as well as some smaller, but equally as great like Rhys Ifans, Emma Chambers, Gina McKee and Hugh Bonneville. Notting Hill went down in history as one of the highest grossing British films that year earning just over $363 million worldwide and over $116 million in the U.S. alone. It even broke an American record as the highest grossing opening weekend for a rom-com when it earned over $27 million! Not surprisingly, the film has become a classic for fans of Roberts and Grant — the biggest rom-com stars of the ’90s and early 2000s. Check out this list and find out how much the main cast members of Notting Hill are worth now!
8. Hugh Bonneville
Estimated Net Worth: $8 million. Hugh Bonneville is now most recognized for his lead role in Downton Abbey as Robert Crawley, a role that earned him a BAFTA, Emmy and Golden Globe nomination.

Bonneville has done many television movies and appearances on popular shows like Doctor Who, Rev., The Silence and Da Vinci’s Demons. When it comes to films, his career has been just as successful. He starred in films like Paddington, Man to Man, Mansfield Park, Iris, Conspiracy of Silence, Four Last Songs, Knife Edge, From Time to Time, Notting Hill and The Monuments Men. Hugh Bonneville made most of his net worth while working on Downton Abbey, but outside of this role he’s managed to stay quite busy! He’s currently worth an estimated $8 million.
7. Emma Chambers
Estimated Net Worth: Unknown. This British actress is best known for her role in Notting Hill as Honey Thacker and Alice Tinker in the BBC series The Vicar of Dibley.

In addition to those, she’s appeared in the series Drop the Dead Donkey, Pond Life, Take a Girl Like You, Little Robots and the film Bravo Two Zero. She hasn’t had an acting job since 2003 and her roles are few and far between so it’s not that surprising her net worth is unknown. She’s probably worth around $200 thousand.
6. Dylan Moran
Estimated Net Worth: $12 million. This Irish comedian is also a writer, filmmaker and actor! His biggest accomplishments have been co-writing and starring in the sitcom Black Books, as well as his stand-up performances.
