Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, the return
Ben Affleck, who has a phoenix tattoo on his back, is engaged for the second time to Jennifer Lopez and seems to have risen from the ashes. Getting! Hitched! *Breathes deeply* Their vibe is best defined as thirst with a side of oozing money if you haven’t noticed that already.
These two have done it all in the past year, from house hunting to a lavish European trip to celebrate J.Lo’s 52nd birthday (during which they essentially spent their time chilling on a massive private yacht and reenacting THAT scene from the “Jenny from the Block” video)…and they may soon be moving into an $85 million mansion.
Casual! Jennifer Lopez’s net worth of $400 million allows her to make purchases of this magnitude, but Ben also has the financial means to do so. Let’s cool off by briefly diving into the actor’s wealth. Ben Affleck’s Movie Salary Can Reach $15 Million! Over the years, our buddy Ben has starred in many films, and as a result, he has amassed a hefty fortune. For the 2003 film Paycheck (no joke intended), he reportedly earned $15 million, the bulk of his wealth.
That’s ironic! What are some additional noteworthy examples of non-paycheck events? Ah, not at all! Six million for Reindeer Games, ten for Changing Lanes and The Sum of All Fears, and twelve and a half for Gigli, the criminal masterpiece. However, Ben’s first significant film role in the critically acclaimed Good Will Hunting resulted in one of his lowest salaries. Despite the lack of monetary significance, this event had many positive aspects.
From an interview in 2013 with Boston Magazine, he reminisces about the time he read about them getting $600,000 on it in Daily Variety. They were both unemployed at the time so the used a copy of the Daily Variety as collateral to secure a $3,000-a-month rental house. He told the landlord that he can’t take credit for anything, but showing the article he said “this is who we are.” And the landlord agreed readily. They rented fancier digs and bought new Jeep Cherokees because they thought $600,000 would see us through the next two decades, but they lost all of their money in a year.
Sure, but what about Batman? Unfortunately, we don’t know how much Ben makes as Batman, although Forbes claims that he made $35 million in 2014 because of the “massive payday” he received for Dawn of Justice. Ben Can Afford an $85 Million Mansion. The newlyweds might have bought the Beverly Hills mansion of Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, but that’s only a rumour.
It’s not too far from Ben’s current price range for a house. After spending $17.55 million on a home in 2009 with ex-wife Jennifer Garner and then selling it to Adam Levine for $32 million in 2019 (at a profit of $18.5 million), Ben Affleck went on to purchase a $19 million home in the same area in 2018.
He can easily afford $45 million for a $85 million house. After all, it is a financial commitment. *Breaks down in tears* As of 2020, he had made $55 million. Consider…during the pandemic. Forbes ranked Ben at #37 on their list of the 100 Highest-Paid Celebrities in the World thanks to his pay, saying, “His impending film roles have earned him eight-figure sums. Thriller The Last Duel set in medieval times and the action flick Hypnotic.
” According to the website Celebrity Net Worth, that equals $150 million. And while $150 million seems like a “little” figure compared to the millions Ben earns per film, keep in mind that after paying all of his bills, taxes, and overhead, that’s all he has left. This is, in other words, a negligible portion of his total earnings.
