In every conversation that we have in our day-to-day lives, celebrities are always one of the topics that we end up discussing. With the glamour and glitz of Hollywood and the stardom it brings along with itself, it would seem that most celebrities bring along loads of wealth with themselves. However, the true story, (as discussed by many websites like celebrity net worth wiki) is a stark difference from our usual perception.

Here are some celebrity net worths that will come to you as both a shock and a surprise, when you read on.

Lena Headey

It would come as a surprise to most Game of Thrones fans that Lena was moving around with a paltry sum of $5 in her bank account just 2 years ago. But the fates changed for the on-screen Cercei, who now has a net worth of $1.5 million to speak of. The financial tensions in her life occurred because of an ugly divorce battle, which left her almost penniless, despite her bagging a whopping sum of $150,000 per episode at the show.

Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby is an all-rounder, if nothing. The celebrity got famous for his hit sitcom The Cosby Showand went on to win numerous awards in the industry, including 7 Emmy awards, 9 Grammys and a couple of Golden Globes. However, what most people do not know is that the bulk of Cosby’s $400 million net worth actually comes from the various endorsements he did back in the day for corporate giants like Kodak, Ford, Coca-Cola, and J-E-L-L-O pudding.

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey may have retired from the limelight, but you would be shocked to knw that her net worth keeps increasing by the day. The star and host of The Oprah Winfrey Show continues to have a hefty sum of $2.9 billion as her net worth, which she draws from her personal television network OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network).

Nicholas Cage

Recently at the receiving end of numerous memes on various social media sites like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, the Hollywood star is a favorite among most cinema lovers out there in the audience. The actor, who has more than 70 movies to his credit, is one of the highest paid actors in the movie world, earning a sum of $40 million every year. However, his net worth of $25 million is kind of shocking, but it’s all a result of  a private island, 15 mansions, 4 luxury yatchs, a $30 million private jet, along with crazy buys like 2 rare albino cobras and a 67 million years old dinosaur skull.

50 Cent

The infamous rapper boy of the late 90s made a huge inventory for hmself after selling bottles after bottles of Vitamin water, at which he had a 2.5% stake. However, he is the ideal person to talk about, especially when it comes to squandering away wealth. The celebrity spent away all his money on trivial things like booze, cars and girls, and when he was hit with a lawsuit worth $5 million for allegedly releasing a sex tape without permission, all hell broke loose. 50 Cent claimed that the lawsuit was worth as much as him, and he filed for bancruptcy. However, he seems to have recovered quite a lot, as according to celebrity net worth wiki, his current net woth is $15 million.
