Super-Rich Celebrity Brothers And What They're Worth

Making it big — and making a fortune — in various industries may seem like an incredibly lofty and arguably unlikely goal. That includes wildly competitive and potentially lucrative professional sectors like acting, music, and sports. That's why it's an amazing accomplishment when anyone manages to succeed in any part of the entertainment scene. And when more than one member of the same family manages to become super successful, that's even more impressive!

Granted, when multiple members of the same family find both fame and fortune, it might have something to do with the fact that "it's in their genes," as Us Weekly claims, or it could be the fact that a famous name carries a lot of weight when you want to work in the public eye. That's why having close connections can help get one started and boost their profile, not to mention hook them up with an opportunity-filled network.

However, just because one relative manages to climb their way to A-list status, that doesn't mean that each and every one of their siblings can do the same thing. Take, for instance, some of the brothers mentioned on this list. While some have funds that are equally enviable, others have fortunes that are massively different. But out of all of the famous sibling groups around, do you have any idea who has the most? Read on to find out just about much some of the most famous celebrity brothers have and who happens to be the richest family members around!

Noel Gallagher's fortune is almost 10 times bigger than Liam's

If the Gallagher brothers can put their (potentially former?) feud aside, then they might be able to spend more time adding to their (very different) fortunes. That would be good news for Liam Gallagher, who is best known as the lead singer of Oasis — although he did go on to release a few solo albums, while also founding Pretty Green, a clothing line that focuses on "British street" culture. However, despite Liam's success, in 2015, the Daily Mail reported that he had "been forced to hand over half of his £11m fortune to ex-wife Nicole Appleton." 

While the outlet pointed out that £11 million wasn't a lot for someone of his status — and it actually only sits at $7.5 million these days, per Celebrity Net Worth — he told NME, "I don't go on the road to come back with a big pot of money. I go on the road to have a great time, do great gigs and enjoy being in a band."

As for Noel Gallagher, he was the main songwriter in Oasis, which is likely why he's banked more money than Liam. Just consider the fact that, according to Headliner, Oasis' hit "Wonderwall" was "the first song from the '90s to surpass one billion streams on Spotify." In 2017, Noel told BBC News, "I don't know anybody who's as rich as me. Apart from my wife, of course." Indeed, he has almost 10 times more than his brother with an estimated $70 million.

Prince William and Prince Harry have royal riches

While it's clear that Prince William and Prince Harry are privileged, where does their money actually come from? Well, the two were set to "share about £14m from the estate of their late great grandmother," according to BBC News, while their late mother, "Princess Diana reportedly left both ... $10 million after taxes." William and Harry also receive royal funds, which Harper's Bazaar explains "stem from the Duchy of Cornwall," which is the same source of income that also pays dad Prince Charles. On top of that, Forbes notes that William took in "between $68,000 and $74,000 a year as a flight lieutenant with the Royal Air Force," and Harry, who was an Army Air Corps helicopter pilot, earned "between $50,000 and $53,000." 

In total, William has a $40 million fortune, according to Celebrity Net Worth, while Harry has even more with $50 million. Harry actually received more money from his great grandmother's inheritance than William, thanks to the fact that he isn't expected to inherit the throne. Beyond that, in January 2020, Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, announced on Instagram that they "intend[ed] to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen." That kind of freedom has allowed them to do things like, as The New York Times reported, sign a $100 million deal with Netflix, which will obviously give their fortune a big boost.

Beau and Jeff Bridges are (wealthy) Hollywood icons

Beau Bridges and Jeff Bridges — "the children of celebrated actor Llyod Bridges," per ET — have both made their mark in Hollywood. Beau has an impressive acting career that dates back to 1949 and includes appearances on shows like The Agency, My Name is Earl, Stargate SG-1, The Millers, Masters of Sex, Bloodline, and Messiah. The older Bridges brother talked about success at an Academy event called Beau & Jeff Bridges: A Tale of Two Bridges, saying, "When you bring hard work and joy together, then that's when fantastic things happen." For Beau, those fantastic things include $16 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Jeff is probably most famous for his role as the White Russian drinking slacker, The Dude, in the Coen Brothers film The Big Lebowski, which has become a cult favorite. Of course, in 2010, Jeff also earned an Oscar for his work in Crazy Horse, and has had notable roles in True Grit, Hell or High Water, and Iron Man. He also has a band called The Abiders, a cheeky little ode to his role as The Dude, and an ambient music album called Sleeping Tapes, which features "intriguing sounds, noises, and other things to help you get a good night's rest." While donations for the latter project are used to help No Kid Hungry, which provides children with healthy meals, Jeff really doesn't need the added cash as he's already worth a whopping $100 million.

Luke, Owen, and Andrew Wilson are all millionaires

Luke Wilson and Owen Wilson may be the most famous members of their family — however, there happens to be a third sibling that you might have spotted onscreen without even realizing who he was. Big brother Andrew Wilson is also an actor and can be found in smaller roles alongside his brothers in films like The Royal Tenenbaums, Zoolander, Rushmore, and Charlie's Angels. That's likely why he has a decent (if relatively modest) fortune that sits at $2 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Luke, the youngest of the brothers, has amassed his fortune thanks to various acting roles like the frat boy (or man) in Old School, the love interest in the Legally Blonde films with Reese Witherspoon, and appearing in the Charlie's Angels reboots. Luke told D Magazine, "I'm just focusing on the present, trying to do my best, because I wasn't one of those guys who always knew he wanted to be an actor." While he may not have been sure about his career choice, it certainly paid off, which is why he has $50 million.

Owen undoubtedly rakes in the most moolah with the help of the enviable acting roles that he's landed over the years. For instance, he starred in films like Wedding Crashers, Zoolander, and the Night at the Museum franchise with Ben Stiller, while also voicing Lightning McQueen in the popular Pixar films Cars. Thanks to those credits, he's the richest Wilson brother with $70 million.

The Jonas Brothers banked on more than just their boy band

The Jonas Brothers — Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Nick Jonas — are all wealthy, but their fortunes aren't all the same. When it comes to Kevin, along with his music and acting career, which has helped him bring in $40 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, he's also the founder of Jonas/Werner Fine Custom Homes and the co-CEO of The BLU Market, which "deliver[s] high-volume socially-driven app installs through [a] network of influencers."

Joe also has $40 million thanks to the Disney series Jonas, as well as his music. Beyond that, he's done voice work for films like Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, while also taking his talents down-under to be a judge on The Voice Australia.

As for Nick, he's made his money through his music career alongside his brothers and also as a solo artist. "I get to wake up every day and create music," he once told The Hollywood Reporter. "And even when it's a tough moment as far as career ups and downs, it's always something you're passionate about and it's a beautiful way to spend your life." He also spends part of his time showing off his skills onscreen with roles in Jonas, the Jumanji remakes, as well as starring as Nate Kulina on Kingdom. All of that is why, even though Nick's the youngest of the Jonas brothers, he's also the richest with $50 million.

Seth and Steph Curry earn coin both on and off the court

Seth Curry may have followed in brother Steph Curry's footsteps when he stepped into a career as a professional basketball player in the NBA, but he's still not in the same league when it comes to money. Celebrity Net Worth puts Seth's fortune at $4 million. Granted, in 2020, he was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers after signing with the Dallas Mavericks, which involved a "four-year, $32 million contract," per ESPN, so that number will undoubtedly increase soon.

But as for Steph? He's famous for being one of the NBA's most recognizable players both on and off the court. A three-time NBA Champion and two-time MVP, in 2017, NBC Sports reported that the Golden State Warriors signed Steph to a contract for "five years, $201,158,790 for an average of $40,231,758 annually." Granted, he's done more than just play sports to bring in his $130 million fortune. According to Forbes, Steph launched his company, SC30, "which manages his investments, brand partnerships, and philanthropic ventures." He's also involved with Palm phones "as an investor and advisor," and co-founded a production company called Unanimous Media, while also landing several endorsement deals, including one with Under Armour worth $20 million, Forbes noted. 

Steph explained the kind of attitude that's led him to success on SC30's website, saying, "Throughout my life, I have made a point to not let anyone else write my own story. For me, this means transforming, disrupting, and challenging the status quo."

The super-rich Hemsworth brothers have very varied fortunes

Older brother Luke Hemsworth may not be as big of a star as his siblings, but he has brought in $3 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, thanks to roles in Neighbours and the popular sci-fi show, Westworld. He even made an appearance as "Actor Thor" alongside his brother, Chris Hemsworth, in Thor: Ragnarok.

As for Liam Hemsworth, according to The Sun, he accumulated most of his fortune from high-profile acting gigs in movies like The Hunger Games and The Expendables 2People also reported that he and his brothers sold their jointly-owned Malibu property in 2019 for $4.3 million, which helped put Liam's net worth at a respectable $28 million.

Chris, a Marvel Cinematic Universe mainstay, "Has been playing the God of Thunder since 2011 and can now command more than $15 million each time, plus a percentage of profits," according to Forbes. The outlet also noted that "when he's not in a cape, he's often wearing Hugo Boss or Tag Huer — two brands with which he has seven-figure endorsement deals." Beyond that, he's had roles in Extraction, Men in Black: International, and Ghostbusters, just to name a few. Chris may be rich nowadays with a whopping $130 million, but explained to GQ, "We had grown up with very little money. My parents struggled with bills and financial pressures and I thought if I'm an actor, I can get us out of it, I can take care of my family."

Casey Affleck has a fraction of what brother Ben is banking

Casey Affleck's earlier roles in Good Will Hunting, Chasing Amy, and the Ocean's Eleven franchise helped get him noticed by fans and critics alike. By 2017, he had won an Oscar for best actor for his work in Manchester by the Sea. However, while he has a $20 million fortune, according to Celebrity Net Worth, his career may have stalled when he was accused of sexual harassment.

Older brother Ben Affleck, of course, is also an actor, as well as a writer, producer, and director. His long-time fans will know that his career took off when he won an Oscar for co-writing the film Good Will Hunting, which he also co-starred in, with pal Matt Damon. In the years before and since, he's popped up in numerous other films, including Chasing Amy, Armageddon, and Gone Girl. Beyond that, Ben expanded his earning potential and threw on a cape to join the DC Universe in the role of Bruce Wayne (a.k.a. Batman) in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Justice League. In 2013, he took home another Oscar, this time for best motion picture of the year for Argo, which he directed. 

While talking with Entertainment Weekly, Ben explained, "I don't want to do anything for money, because I've certainly worked for money at times. And if that means I don't work, then I don't work." Well, with a net worth of $150 million, he can probably afford to skip a day or two.

The Wayans brothers' funny ways have made them super rich

Shawn Wayans is someone who likes to work with family. For instance, he joined his brothers on In Living Color as the house DJ and teamed up with them on films like White Chicks and Scary Movie. Thanks to those various credits, he's looking at a $30 million fortune, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Damon Wayans, who is worth $35 million, co-created In Living Color while also having an impressive acting career with roles in The Last Boy Scout, My Wife and Kids, and the TV series Lethal Weapon. He's also written two books: Bootleg and Red Hats: A Novel.

With acting credits that include In Living Color and White Chicks, which he helped to write, youngest brother, Marlon Wayans, also co-created Scary Movie with his brothers — a film that, according to Variety, made over $157 million at the box office. Marlon is laughing all the way to the bank with a net worth of $40 million.

On top of co-creating In Living Color, Keenen Ivory Wayans was also on board when putting together the spoof horror comedy Scary Movie with his brothers. When talking about his family, Keenen told The Guardian, "The rifts that most families have are not the results of show business; they're the result of a shaky foundation. We have a very strong foundation. Show business is not strong enough to divide us." It's also what has helped him bring the most money out of all of his brothers, with an impressive $65 million.

Donnie and Mark Wahlberg are rich thanks to music, acting, and... fast food?

Donnie Wahlberg first found fame as a part of the '80s teen pop sensation New Kids on the Block, which according to Legacy Recordings, had "sales of more than 14 million copies worldwide and certified 8x platinum in the US." For the NKOTB reunion tour in 2017, ticket sales "surpassed the $40 million mark," per Billboard. Donnie is hangin' tough with $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, which is bolstered by his ventures into acting, including roles in Saw II, III, and IV, and Blue Bloods, as well as his co-ownership of the Wahlburgers fast-food chain with his family, which has locations in the US, Canada, and Germany.

"Marky" Mark Wahlberg has come a long way since his "Good-Vibrations" and tighty-Calvin-Klein-underwear days. Since leaving behind the Funky Bunch, he's carved out a lucrative career by switching over to the big screen, where he's starred in films like Boogie Nights, Transformers, and The Departed — for which he earned a best actor Oscar nomination. He's also co-owner of both Wahlburgers and AQUAhydrate with Sean "Diddy" Combs, which is a "performance lifestyle beverage geared towards the new generation of Millennial consumers." 

In 2019, Mark told CNBC, "Everybody is about: 'What am I going to do today?' But I think having a long-term plan and strategy is the most important thing you can do [when it comes to making money]." Mark's ventures seem to be paying off as he has amassed a net worth of $300 million.

Eli and Peyton Manning have formidable football-funded fortunes

In 2020, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning announced his retirement from the NFL, but during his playing days, Forbes notes that his "earnings [were] the highest among active players with $219 million." He also boasted multiple endorsement deals with the likes of Gatorade, Nike, Visa, and more. On top of that, along with brother Peyton Manning and their father, Archie, Eli wrote the book, Family Huddle. As it stands, Eli's fortune sits at $150 million, per Celebrity Net Worth.

Continuing the football family tradition, Peyton played the same position as his brother, Eli, as an NFL pro. The Athletic noted that he "earned $3.4 million in the year ending February 29, 2020, according to the NFLPA's annual report." Not too shabby considering he retired from playing in 2016. That year, Forbes pointed out that "Manning retire[d] with $249 million in career salary/bonuses from the NFL, [and] $400 million in total earnings, including endorsements." Some of his other earnings came from the fact that he "sold his stake in 31 Papa John's franchises," according to USA Today, while he's also the co-author of yet another book, Manning: A Father, His Sons, and a Football Legacy

As Peyton once told Inc., "You can have the swagger of a winner, but never be convinced that your greatest accomplishments are made alone." In that case, he can thank both himself and others for his whopping $250 million.
