rich list

A list of Ireland's most well-off entertainers has been revealed – and there's no prizes for guessing which Mullingar man nabbed the top spot.

Niall Horan has been named as Ireland's richest entertainer, aged just 23, and while you might think a young man like himself might be a bit reckless with his €44 million fortune, financial experts think quite the opposite.

According to The Mirror, it seems the Slow Hands singer learned how to manage money from a young age and is actually well-informed when it come to business and finance.

Other famous faces appearing on the list include Wicklow native, Hozier, who is worth an estimated €4.5 million, while Jedward have a net worth of €1.5 million.

The names were revealed ahead of Ireland’s Rich List, which is due to air on RTÉ 2 this Thursday.

Presenter Joe O’Shea said: “There were a few surprises on the list for me but Niall wasn’t one of them, because One Direction was very much a global vessel.”

“I think he realises how lucky he is. He’s so young and he has all this money. But he has a good head on his shoulders and he’s learned a lot from his years in the music industry.”


Move over Jennifer Lawrence, there's a new queen bee in town.

Emma Stone has just been named as Hollywood's highest-paid actress.

After raking in an eye-watering $26,000,000 over the last 12 months, Emma Stone has secured her place at the top of Forbes' annual 'rich list.'

Following her award-winning performances in La La Land and Birdman, Emma's earnings rose by a whopping 160 per cent last year, making her 2016's highest-paid actress. 

The news comes after the star recently spoke out against Hollywood's gender pay gap, revealing that some of her male co-stars would take pay cuts in the interest of equality.

“In my career so far, I’ve needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them,” she said.

“And that’s something they do for me because they feel it’s what’s right and fair. That’s something that’s also not discussed, necessarily: that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, ‘That’s what’s fair.’”

Jennifer Lawrence, who topped the list in 2016, came in at third place, while Jennifer Aniston came second (largely due to endorsement deals).

Coming in sixth place was Emma Watson, who was the only British born actress to make the top 10.


His death – in June 2009 – shocked the world. And now, seven years on, Michael Jackson is still raking in the mega-bucks.

In fact, the iconic pop superstar is this year's biggest earning celebrity – dead or alive. 

According to Forbes, the King Of Pop topped raked in $825m (€752m) in pretax earnings.

Boosting Jackson’s estate for 2016  was the sale of his half of the Sony/ATV music-publishing catalogue, which included a library of Beatles songs; that alone fetched $750m (€684m) in March.

He originally purchased the catalogue in 1985 for $47.5m (€43.3m) and sold a 50 percent stake to Sony for $115m (€105m) in 1995, according to Forbes.

Living celebrities such as Dr Phil ($88m), Diddy ($62m) and Sofía Vegara ($43m) all pale in comparison.

Also joining Jackson on the Forbes list of richest dead celebrities were Peanuts creator Charles Schultz at No. 2 ($48m/€43.75m), golf legend Arnold Palmer ($40m/€36.5m) and Elvis Presley ($27m/€24.5m).


She’s covered Vogue, been the face of Estée Lauder and has walked the Victoria Secret runway, so by all accounts it has been one busy year for model Kendall Jenner.

As well boosting her CV no end, it has now been revealed that in the last year the 20-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has upped her income by 150 percent, bringing her annual total to a massive $10 million.

Kendall ranked third in Forbes’ yearly list of highest earning models, while lucrative deals with the likes of Chanel and Pantene put Gisele Bündchen in the top spot for the fourteenth year in a row.

Despite having announced her catwalk retirement, the 36-year-old Brazilian supermodel has made $30.5 million since this time last year.

Second place went to Adriana Lima who made only a third of Gisele’s salary with $10.5 million.

Forbes has noted how stars like Kendall and her BFF Gigi Hadid – who tied in fifth place with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for their $9 million incomes – have used their impressive social media followings to land major deals with big brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein.

Almost one third of the women on this year’s list have never appeared on it before.  Lily Aldridge, Jasmine Tookes and Taylor Hill have all made their Forbes debuts thanks to their work with Victoria Secrets.

So, where is it we get our wings?


She’s outspoken, funny, stunning and – as the latest Forbes rich list has revealed – absolutely minted.  Yes, it seems Jennifer Lawrence really does have it all.

The Joy star has been named Hollywood’s highest earning female actress for the second year running, despite being the youngest lady on the star studded list which includes the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Charlize Theron and Julia Roberts.

According to The Telegraph, the 26-year-old Oscar winner will rake in a cool $46 million this year as she receives payment for her work on the Hunger Games and X-Men Apocalypse movies, as well as for her role as a Dior brand ambassador.

Melissa McCarthy took second place on the list with her $33 million income – that’s $10 million more than what she made last year – and Scarlett Johansson occupies the third spot with $25 million.

Former Friends star Jennifer Aniston is expected to make $21 million, while Mila Kunis took ninth place with $11 million.  

Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway, Reese Witherspoon and Kristen Stewart failed to make this year’s list, despite all having featured on the 2015 version.

While we wouldn’t say no to J Law’s salary, it is still worth noting that the actress’ $46 million income is still only half of what Hollywood’s leading man Robert Downey Jr made last year.
