Julia Roberts' net worth revealed: The complete breakdown here!
Widely loved for her role as Vivian Ward in the ever-green romantic comedy Pretty Woman, Julia Roberts is one of those few actors who've achieved massive success while remaining unproblematic and modest in the journey. Roberts' tendency to stay out of the spotlight might have mitigated the actress's celebrity as an A-lister, so here's to remind you that Roberts boasts an Academy, a BAFTA, and three Golden-Globe awards under her belt, making her one of the most prominent stars in showbiz.
Julia Fiona Roberts was born on October 28, 1967, in Smyrna, Georgia. Following some minor roles in Crime Story, Blood Red, Miami Vice, and more, Roberts steadily climbed the ladder of fame through Mystic Pizza and Steel Magnolias and suddenly catapulted to worldwide recognition with Pretty Woman. Also known as one of the most bankable stars of Hollywood, Roberts has amassed a striking net worth in her stellar career- spanning over three decades.
What is Julia Roberts' net worth?
Roberts's career as a leading actress has endowed her with the title of America's Sweetheart and has made her one of the richest actresses. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the Pretty Woman alum has an estimated net worth of $250 million. Although Julia's work on the big screen in recent times has been scarce, and the actress is notably shifting to the small screen, Roberts's amassed wealth from her earlier blockbusters is more than a star can earn in their career.

Roberts was the highest-paid actress in the world throughout the 90s; in fact, her claimed fee at the time was previously unheard of, well, at least, for female leads. Julia's stardom and command grew dramatically after the sweeping success of Pretty Girl in 1990, which grossed a whopping $463.4 million against a budget of $14 million. More coveted roles came her way in Flatliners, Sleeping with the Enemy, The Pelican Brief, My Best Friend's Wedding, and Notting Hill, elevating Julia's bankable repute.
The actress was reportedly paid a staggering $20 million to play environment activist Erin Brockovich in the biographical film of the same name, which grossed $256.3 million against a budget of $52 million. The highlight of her career and the film fraternity came when Roberts was paid $25 million, the highest earned by an actress, to star in the drama film Mona Lisa Smile.

After raking the groundbreaking salary in Mona Lisa Smile, Roberts continues to showcase her prowess in Closer, Charlie Wilson's War, Fireflies in the Garden, Valentine's Day, and Eat Pray Love. Roberts' A-lister status has also landed her some lucrative brand deals. The Academy-winning actress was paid $20 million for her deal with the high-end cosmetic brand Lancôme in 2009.

Roberts's colossal bank balance and her lush lifestyle are also reflected in the actress's expansive interest and investments in real estate. The pretty woman bought a $6.4 million property in Malibu during the early years of her career. She paid $6.84 million for yet another estate in the beach city. Roberts owns a $4 million apartment in Manhattan, a $30 million worth mansion in Los Angeles, and a $13.37 million property in Hawaii, later sold for $16.2 million.
