The fates of the famous: Their life wasn't a walk in the park, but they have enough money to swim in today!
Not everyone was lucky enough to inherit a nice round amount of money. As surprising as it may seem, many famous personalities grew up poor. Today, however, it's in the past. We'll show you the brightest stars shining on top of the ranking of wealthy people.
1. Oprah Winfrey conquered and stunned the media world
Oprah Winfrey had a difficult childhood. She grew up in the Mississippi countryside in a low-income family. Having started with almost nothing, the turning point came for her at the age of 32, when she literally shook the world. Her first talk show "The Oprah Winfrey Show" was aired nationwide and was a huge success. Who would have thought that she would eventually become the queen of the media empire? Oprah Winfrey's net assets are estimated at an incredible 73.6 billion crowns.
"It does not matter how you came into the world, what matters is that you are here." O. Winfrey
2. Edd Sheeran - one of the biggest names of the music scene
Edd Sheeran started out as a street artist on a busy London street. Few would believe that he lived on the street like homeless people, sleeping in underground train stations. Today, Edd is sells out stadiums right and left. He also broke U2's record in the amount of money earned for concerts and his tour might just be the most successful tour of all times. He owns a nice fat amount of CZK 4.760 million.
"Success is the best revenge for anything." E. Sheeran
3. The famous "Carrie" Sarah Jessica Parker went through a lot
At one point, Sarah's family couldn't afford electricity or birthday gifts. They went through some hard times. She knew very well what it was like to share everything with one's siblings, seeing as she was born into a family with 9 children. She got her first role on Broadway at the age of 11 and it didn't take long for her to move to Hollywood, where her stellar career picked up. The actress has about 2.070 million crowns on her account.
"When it comes to life and love, why do we believe our worst reviews?" S. J. Parker
4. Arnold Schwarzenegger - one of the richest actors in the world
Before becoming the Terminator, a highly successful actor in the film industry, he began to build his career as a professional bodybuilder. However, as a child he was growing up in an Austrian city after World War II. Memories of hunger and unrest from that period of his life are engraved in his memory. His net assets reach 9 billion and 200 million crowns.
"You can have results or excuses. Not both." A. Schwarzenegger
5. Howard Schultz is the man in charge of Starbucks
He is Chairman and CEO of Starbucks, owning over 23,000 retail stores, located in 73 countries, with a market value of 1 trillion 955 billion crowns. His net asset value exceeds $ 66 billion 7 million. However, he grew up in very poor conditions. When he was 7 years old, he was deeply struck by the fact that even though his father was trying to work, he lacked both money and respect. Perhaps that was what motivated Howard to achieve success in life.
