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|
|Qualified plan contributions||-||$0|
|Adjusted gross income||=||$260,000|
|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?
