What is Joey King's net worth as of 2022: The complete breakdown here!
You might remember the actress from The Kissing Booth, a Netflix teen romantic comedy she headlined in 2018, but Joey King is actually a Hollywood veteran with credits dating as far back as 2008, and do note that she is only 23 years old. The young actress has been one of the most talked about stars as she headlines some high-profile projects like Bullet Train, a Brad Pitt starrer, and the recently released series The Princess.
Joey Lynn King was born on July 30, 1999, in Los Angeles, California. Her venture on the screen started as young as when she was four, with commercial gigs. Consistent work in front of the camera propelled Joey to debut in the 2008 animated film Horton Hears a Who!, in which she voiced a character. With more than dozens of credits under her belt, King is today an Emmy-nominated actress.
What is Joey King's Net Worth?
King may have an extensive work history, but it was only after she played the role of Elle Evans in Netflix's The Kissing Booth that she witnessed a sudden surge in her fandom and notability. According to the wealth website Celebrity Net Worth, the Emmy nominee has an estimated net worth of $4 million, and the actress is only starting.

As per several reports, King's fees and net worth are going to explode at a substantial rate in the next few years. As a child actor, King had amassed more than 100 credits in commercial gigs before she moved into shows and movies. Her early credits include The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Malcolm in theMiddle, Entourage, CSI, Ramona and Beezus, New Girl, and Crazy, Stupid, Love.
Before rising to become one of the best young talents, King had minor roles in high-profile projects like Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, which grossed over $1 billion; although it is doubtful that the flick's commercial success contributed any large amount to Joey's bank balance, given she was an unknown name at the time.

Call it her girl next door aura or her almost non-celebrity features, King's work has mostly flown under the radar despite her stellar work. The actress's credits also extend to Oz the Great and Powerful, which grossed $493.3 million,The Conjuring, a $319.5 million grosser; and her starrer Wish Upon, which grossed $23.5 million.

King, Courtney, and Elordi have since reprised their adored roles in the movie's follow-ups, The Kissing Booth 2 and The Kissing Booth 3. It is estimated that the headlining trio was paid anywhere between $1 million to $2 million for the franchise.
