Eva Mendes Net Worth is $15,000,000

That sounds like a lot of money, doesn’t it? I mean…..15 million bucks. You’re probably thinking that if YOU had a net worth of $15,000,000 you’d be on cloud nine and no need to work again for the rest of your life.

But lets evaluate that $15,000,000 net worth. In a few moments you may be wondering one of two things…..

1. Why is Eva Mendes Net Worth so low?

2. Why did she get paid so little for the films that she’s been in?

Let’s start with #1. Why is Eva Mendes Net Worth so low? Well, It’s very possible that she’s just not very good at financial planning. Maybe she got paid $10,000,000 per movie for all of the movies she’s appeared in but spent almost every penny on private jets and trying to be a “baller” in Malibu and Paris. Not likely, but maybe that’s what happened. The salaries of movie starts aren’t public information, so we’ll never know.

Now let’s look at #2. Why did she get paid so little for the films she was in? This is the most probable. She’s appeared in 32 films by my count. And that’s only a net worth of $468,750 per film. Not very much by Hollywood standards. But then again, by the standards of the average American worker, she’s in the top 1% of income earners. Not to shabby. But nothing big to report here.

I must admit to you that judging by the earnings of big stars like Denzel Washington, Tom Cruse and others, the money that Eva Mendes is getting paid looks like peanuts. Peanuts that are larger than yours, but peanuts just the same.

But I would be lying if I told you that I wasn’t surprised that her networth is so low. I expected something like  60 million dollar net worth. I thought that my research would find her to be a very comfortable millionaire. So comfortable that she could spend a couple million dollars on a condo in South Beach and it wouldn’t make a dent in her lifestyle. I mean she is from Miami, Florida so I have to admit that this was on my mind. But a $2,000,000 purchase would definitely make someone uncomfortable if they only had a $13,000,000 more to live on. After all…..$13,000,000 invested at the “safe” rate of return for bonds at your local bank would only bring her $260,000 in gross income BEFORE tax income…..

Estimated Tax Analysis
Gross income $260,000
Qualified plan contributions - $0
Adjusted gross income = $260,000
Standard/Itemized deductions - $12,400
Personal exemptions - $7,900
Taxable income = $239,700
Tax liability before credits $55,096
Child tax credits - $0
Estimated tax liability = $55,096

So subtract the $55,096 from her gross income of $260,000 gives her an annual income of only $204,904 BEFORE state income taxes.

So is Eva Mendes a high income person at $204,000 annual income if she spends $2,000,000 on a South Beach condo? No. She’s not. And she probably thinks the same way.

So you tell me your thoughts. Is a $15,000,000 net worth what you would expect an actress like Eva Mendes to have? Or does that $15,000,000 feel a bit low to you?

Immigration and Obama Presidential Executive Order Powers

Immigration and Obama Presidential Executive Order Powers

Does President Obama have the power to make an executive order on the immigration issue and change the immigration system in the United States that’s broken? The answer is a definitive “probably so”. Most education observers would rather see Obama go through “congress” (with a little “c” because they behave like children). The problem with that angle is congress and the republicans who are filled with anger, have been in “blocker” mode since BEFORE Obama even took office. The tragedy here is the United States people, well most of them anyway, either can’t see that republicans are “blocking” Obama at every step he makes, or are  supporting the efforts of republicans to stop Obama from being a successful President.

I can remember a white woman (Hillary supporter) on the evening of the Democrat convention when Obama won the Democrat nomination saying “we will never support Obama”. And she was a DEMOCRAT! I appreciate her honesty on national TV because it displayed something that African Americans have known for a long time. Even when an African American is bright, seemingly intelligent, able to navigate the minefield that is U.S. Politics, and gets elected, there still exists discrimination that. That discrimination, many argue, isn’t based on race. Commentators say that the discrimination is based  more on a “you’re not like me” type of discrimination. And that type of discrimination is more often than not, still of the type that would be unlawful in an employment environment. Many times it’s even more lethal than employment discrimination because it’s a hardness of the heart that the discriminator is displaying. And on the most segregated day of the week, Sunday, pastors, reverends, rabbis, and imams, all talk about “hardness of the heart”. They say hardness of the heart is ungodly and isn’t the right thing to do.

But then again, who said the republicans and others who oppose President Obama WANT to do the right thing? You can’t legislate against discrimination against the president because of his race. I suspect President Obama will talk a bit about that when he publishes his memoir about his two terms in office. It isn’t strange tht he’s silent now. What’s strange is that reporters, commentators, and political pundits like presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin see whats going on and don’t report on it.

WASHINGTON — The number of Americans signing contracts to buy homes increased only slightly in September, as it remained difficult for some potential buyers to qualify for mortgage financing.

The National Association of Realtors said on Monday that its seasonally adjusted index of pending home sales rose 0.3 percent over the last month, to 105. The index remains half a percentage point below its 2013 average but 1 percent higher than a year earlier.

Tight credit and price increases have limited buying activity. About 15 percent of the real estate agents surveyed for the index said they could not close a deal because the buyer was unable to obtain a mortgage.

”We continue to see steady, albeit modest, improvement in this sector,” said Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets.

Pending sales are a barometer of future purchases. A one- to two-month lag usually exists between a contract and a completed sale. The number of contract signings increased in the Northeast and South last month, while declining in the West and Midwest.

Federal regulators approved plans last week to expand the availability of credit. Five agencies — including the Federal Reserve and the Securities and Exchange Commission — backed changes to the rules on how much risk banks can accept when they package and sell mortgage securities in their multitrillion-dollar market.

The modified rules should enable buyers to put down less money to acquire a home. Regulators ended a requirement that borrowers make a 20 percent down payment if the lending bank did not hold at least 5 percent of the mortgage securities tied on its books.

Average mortgage rates have fallen for the last five weeks. The average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage tumbled last week to 3.92 percent, its lowest point since the week of June 6, 2013, according to the government-supported mortgage finance company Freddie Mac.
