44 Famous People Who I Didn't Realize Were As Rich As They Are, But Boy They Have A Butt Ton Of Money

If anyone on this list wants to pay off my student loans, I'd be grateful!

We all know that a lot of famous people are rich. They are millionaires! I'm a dollaraire. We are not the same.

But while some celebs are millionaires, others are like, multi, multi, multimillionaires. And whilst browsing through the net worths of famous people, I found out there are celebs who are richer than most. Some that I never expected to be as rich as they are.

Reminder, take the following info with a tiny grain of salt, because it came from the internet. However, it's still most likely in ballpark range of their wealth, meaning...they are still REALLY RICH NO MATTER WHAT.
