Gold digger is a term that is mostly applied to women; however, sometimes the savviest of the gold diggers are actually men. They typically go after wealthy, unassuming women and, if you look closely, they are everywhere. Hollywood is no exception. Most women are wealthy and many of them are incredibly insecure, which makes them prime targets. Since it isn’t fair to focus only on the women, here are 10 of Hollywood’s best known male gold diggers.

Guy Ritchie was a successful director before he married Madonna; however, by marrying and divorcing the pop queen, he made himself a very, very wealthy man.

According to the “Sherlock Holmes” director, he believes that his marriage to Madonna was “ultimately very positive.” For that amount of money, we bet it was!Featureflash / Shutterstock.com
