Top 10 Richest Child Celebrities of All Time!

As we all know, celebrities are at the top of the food chain. They rack in millions and millions of dollars for every appearance they make in movies or television series or they spout golden bricks every time they put out a record for everyone to listen to on the radio, and so many other ways of how a celebrity makes money. It’s pretty ridiculous how they have so much money that they probably don’t know what to do with it. But just because of that doesn’t mean they won’t keep making so much money than we can ever dream of. Actors, Singers, TV Personalities and the like have solidified their names in the business earning them as much money as one can think of. But who would have thought that children can earn just as much. Although some may not be children anymore, those who made this list earned the big bucks even when they were younger. Here are the some of the richest child celebrities of all time in no particular order.

10. Chandler Riggs

A newcomer and the youngest in the list is none other than the Zombie killer himself, Chandler Riggs. His role in the immensely popular TV series The Walking Dead has earned him a whopping net worth of $2 million. Now it may not be as much as the rest of the youths of this list, but bear in mind that he only started his career recently. Who knows how much more he can make in the future.

9. Rico Rodriguez

Being a part of one of the most successful television shows of all time, Modern Family, Rico Rodriguez has definitely earned a lot more than most actors in Hollywood. With a net worth of $7 million, and only being 17 years old, surely he doesn’t need to do much anymore even if he just sits back and relax in the comfort of his home for the rest of his life. Although he is still at the beginning of his career and we’re sure there’s more to come.

8. Miranda Cosgrove

If you didn’t watch iCarly when you were younger then you missed out a lot in life. Miranda Cosgrove has not only starred in her own show but she also gained a lot of attention (and money of course) in the television series Drake & Josh. With all her success, she has earned a net worth of $8 million and it looks like she’s no stopping any time soon.

7. Willow and Jaden Smith

The children of powerhouse couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith are definitely making names for themselves outside of the protective bubble of their famous parents. With both Willow’s and Jaden’s promising career in the film and music industries, their bank accounts will probably overtake their parent’s.

6. Chloe Grace Moretz

At the very young age of 18, she has been in more films than you can count. From starring in the summertime massive hit (500) Days of Summer, to being the female lead in films such as Kick Ass 2 and If I Stay, she is definitely an up and coming actress that will soon join the likes of Anne Hathaway and maybe even legendary Meryl Streep. Her net worth of $8 million proves that.

5. Dylan And Cole Sprouse

The twins may be out of the spotlight now, but that doesn’t mean they don’t still have the riches that they have earned after being one of the most successful child stars to date. Their roles in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and The Suite Life on Deck helped them earn a current net worth of $16 million.

4. Miley Cyrus

Another celebrity on the list that is not a child anymore, Miley Cyrus, is definitely a front runner when it comes to earning big bucks. Her gig in the worldwide phenomenon Hannah Montana already cemented her spot as one of the wealthiest child stars of all time. With hit after hit and sold out concerts all over the world, she has now a net worth of $160 million. Not bad for someone who is supposedly a rotten egg in the Disney bunch.

3. Abigail Breslin

If we’re talking about child stars, then Abigail Breslin definitely fits the bill. She started her career in the entertainment industry at the very young age of 3 and even landing her first movie role when she was just 5 years old. That’s pretty impressive and because of that, it’s definitely not a surprise that she’s a part of this list of the richest child celebrities. With her net worth of $12 million, she definitely earned her spot here.

2. Dakota Fanning

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

Dakota Fanning needs no introduction. Her name, a household name at that, can be found everywhere. With successful acting career even at a very young age of 21, she has amassed so much money that she doesn’t even need to work for the rest of her life. Her prominent roles are in films I Am Sam and of course The Twilight Saga.

1. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

Household names turned fashion icons Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are definitely not kids anymore. But what gave them a spot in this list is that they were already making millions back when they weren’t even teenagers. Their roles in Full House and several other films and TV shows. But what really bumped their salary to hundreds of millions of dollars is their company Dualstar and their fashion label The Row and many other fashion ventures, cementing their position in the world of fashion.
