We all know she’s made a bunch of money, but exactly how much?
Jennifer Aniston just turned 51 and everyone is talking bout her right now.
Found this article on Cosmopolitan interesting about Jennifer Aniston and the millions and millions of dollars she has made over the years. It’s pretty sick actually.
Jen’s been a household name for the past two and a half decades for one major reason: Friends. Sure, the final episode of the show may have aired 16 years ago, but she is America’s sweetheart and everyone still loves her and whatever she puts her name on.
In the report, it states that she made most of her money from Friends:
On the first season of the show, each cast member of Friends made $22,500. Since there were 24 episodes in the first season, Jen’s salary for Friends season one was $540,000— In the second season, the cast salaries were boosted to $40,000, which earned Jen $960,000. And then by season three, Jen finally earned her first million ($1.875 mil, to be exact) for a season’s worth of episodes.
On the final season of the show, Jen took home $18 million…which breaks down to $1 million PER EPISODE! So in total, when looking at all of Jen’s salary increases, she and the rest of the Friends cast made about $90 million each before bonuses and royalties. Wow!
In 2000, the Friends cast signed a contract that allowed them all to get a cut of any royalties from reruns, which is kinda rare. 16 years later, it’s still on TV, Jen gets a nice fraction of the total $1 billion the show earns in streaming and royalties revenue, which is about $10-20 million.
It’s not all. If Friends ends up doing the reunion special, “each of the six stars will be paid in the $3 million-$4 million range for appearing in the special….it’s an hour long.
To date, Jen has been in 42 movies..which all made over $200 million in box office sales. And that’s not even counting the films she’s directed or produced.
In total, Jennifer has reportedly made $75 million from film paychecks from 1997 to 2011, often requesting $8 million per movie.
And she just turned 51 and looks AMAZING!!!
