Thandie Newton worth 17 Million??? Yea right!?!?!!! Shes only been in like 4 movies! I know Eddie Murphy didnt pay her all that for Norbit! What gives? How could she be worth 17M but Tia &Tamara have been working since they were kids and they only have 4M each? #NoGo
Yea this list is kind of dumb because Janet obviously got her fortune from MUSIC and jada is rich because of will! She has definitely not been is more or better movies then Gabbie, Regina king or Zoe Saldana and I'm sure Zoe will be making bank soon with the new Avatar movies!
MTO viewers and readers if you read the title or topic good it said HOLLY HOOD ACTRESS,,, SO how would you folks see day time talk show host OPRAH name on this list or KIM who is reality TV reality star and for those who talking about colour, There is no word on the title or topic that talk about race or colour or ethnic groups,, I am not surprise that janet jackson is that rich her tours is always sold out from in the 80,s up until 2013 and let,s not forget this she is the first female singer/actress to sign a 80 million dollars deal in the 80,s and she do not squander her money,she is a conscious lady with her millions,,, And last year 2012 she secretly married a oil billionaire europian white guy,,, But I was surprise to not see the big show SCANDAL star KERRY WASHINGTON name on the list and also BEYONCE singer/actress name on the list either.
Oprah is an actress. She just played an amazing role in The Butler with Forrest Whitaker. I guess her income is so off the charts they decided to exclude her. I'm very surprised at Thadie Newton,she doesn't even make 1mil a flick & was only on ER for like two seasons years ago.
This is just a list of names and some numbers that are made up. Janet was next to 250million and Forbes had Raven more like 400million She did all the things the little white twins did but just by herself.
MTO, why are you surprised about Jada? What, that Jason Lyric check was supposed to be bigger? She hasn't done anything but get married to be that rich.
MTO's air-headed editors didn't notice this list is combining singers, actors, producers and TV hosts or some combination thereof. Janet made most of her big money from singing. MTO's editors: as intellectually rachet as the people they 'write' about.
Janet signed an 80 million dollar music contract years ago...one of the highest
at that time. Thandie has been in Crash and other movies not just Tyler Perry
movies. Zoe should be higher on the list. Jada's last gig was Hawthorne and
her wacky band. She lucked up marrying Will b/c she wold most def be a
struggling actress without him.
Jada! *s husband makes the money! if they end up divorced about to be real Paid. why would they include Janet Jackson who's also singer without including Beyonce you also contributes to acting? Media takeout.com make stories go how they want them to go to make people look real good real bad. Anyway you put it they will love you one day rip you apart the next day!
i thought Viola Davis would have way more than that. she been in some big time white people movies.
and Jada is still a struggling actress, even as Will's wife lol. i used to like her in the early/mid 90s...not anymore.
You can be still be paid, even though you only make i movie versus 10. It depends on HOW you asked to get paid. It is like singing, if you sing a song, you get a one time fee on the other hand, if you write a song, you keep getting paid every time the song is played/used, etc.
If you work in a movie and your agreement is that you get paid on the back end, you great great great grandchildren will be getting paid, as long as the money keeps playing.
YES, Rashida Jones IS BLACK. She is Quincy Jones' daughter.
I'm happy that these women see hoarding their riches. They came from a period when life was hell for blacks.
Now you have black women holding on to a headache. You don't need a church to give back 10%...you just need to gods work and share the wealth with those who are oppressed.
This list is all wrong people, a lot of those actresses have more money than that and the others do not have that much. Nia long and Halle Berry and Zoe Saldana and Paula Patton have MONEY, Janet Jackson like jermaine has no money. Who made this list??? No research??
thandie newton has been in a ton of mainstream movies, including the oscar winning movie "crash." and who doesn't know that rashida jones is the daughter of quincy jones? LOL. and where is charlize theron? she is african.
I agree @Chantal31177 shes killing the music game ( even tho she's losing it to me ) but lets not get ahead if ourselves this chick is the same in every movie , BORING . and whoever thinks she deserves to be on this list needs to check into a mental clinic asap
Whoever said Oprah is not an actress is an idiot! Hell Oprah has starred in more movies than half the chicks on this list! Just because she does other things and just so happens to be a gazillionaire it doesn't mean she's not an actress! Can you say The Color Purple....Women of Brewster Place, The Butler, Beloved..I could go on and on! Oprah has at lest 30 movies out!
fuck oprah she is NOT an ACTRESS... she a SLAVE motion picture featurette, Beyonce can't act so lets keep it like that and not dwell further, this list is a little off but JANET is on top, she has signed more than 1 80 million dollar contract in tha 80's and 90's, she has composed/starred/produced(ing) AND is married to a billionaire, so she is worth more than 150mill... she's close to OPRAH which i aint hatin on none of em but O did her thing what she wanted to do, all tha rest, jada should be worth more
