Brad Pitt Net Worth and Earnings

Brad Pitt Net Worth as of today is $300 Million. Brad Pitt Net Worth is accumulated from his career as an actor and producer.

He is one of the highest-paid entertainers and most-famous in the world earning a minimum of $20 million for major motion picture releases. 

In 1991, he  earned just $6,000 for his bit part in Thelma & Louise. After two years, he earned $500,000 for Kalifornia which is the same as just under $1 million after adjusting for inflation. 

Then two years after Kalifornia, Brad earned a cool $4 million for Se7en. The year after, he earned his first $10 million paycheck for Sleepers. He also earned another $10 million for Seven Years in Tibet.

In the late 1990s, Brad’s base film salary had increased to $17.5 million, which he earned for Met Joe Black, Spy Game, Fight Club and Troy. He also earned $20 million for Mr. & Mrs. Smith and earned $20 million for most starring roles that he is not producer. 

Brad divided his salary in half to $10 million to appear in Tarantino movies Inglorious Basterds and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

He accepted a lower base salary of $10 million in exchange for a percentage of backend receipts in 2001 when he co-starred in Ocean’s Eleven. He later ended up earning $30 million from the film.

As a film producer, Brad has earned untold additional millions probably more than what he has earned during his career as an actor.

After his wife ‘Jolie’ delivered their daughter Shiloh, the couple sold the North American photo rights to People Magazine for $4.1 million and the British rights to Hello! for $3.5 million, for a total payday of $7.6 million. 

After the birth of their twins Knox and Vivienne, they also sold the rights to People and Hello! for a total of $15 million. That still stands as the record for most-expensive celebrity photographs of all time.

Brad Pitt owns a portfolio of real estate that is worth over $100 million. His longtime primary home in LA has been a veritable compound that he has pieced together over the years through multiple transactions. 

However, located in LA’s Los Feliz neighborhood, today the property is made up of 5 contiguous parcels over nearly 2-acres. The property also has four homes including a 6,600 square-foot main house. Brad bought his first parcel in the compound in 1994.

Brad spent $4 million on a beach house in Santa Barbara in 2000.

In 2006, around the time Brad was planning the construction of 150 of affordable homes in New Orleans, he spent $3.5 million on a historic mansion in the city’s famous French Quarter. He and Jolie listed the home for sale in 2015 for $6.5 million but later took the property off the market after not finding a buyer.

The couple spent a mouth-water $67 million on a 1,200-acre winery in the south of France called Chateau Miraval in 2008. The main house on the property has 35 rooms, several guest houses and a recording studio. 

Pitt and Jolie actually married at the chateau in 2014 so this property became a major point of contention during their divorce proceedings and caused the final settlement to drag on for years.

They eventually reach a settlement that likely involved an agreement that they would either sell the property down the road or allow their children to be the primary heirs.

Brad Pitt bought a villa on the Spanish island of Majorca for $3.7 million in 2015.
