List of the richest people don’t change much over years. There are always names such as Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie. However, when Forbes announced its annual ranking of the world’s richest celebs, there was a big surprise. On the No. 4 spot, proudly stood Fan Bingbing, leaving behind A-listers Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie.

Bingbing who, you ask?

Even though you’ve probably never heard of her name, she is one of China’s biggest celebrities. Her last years paychecks were staggering $21,000,000!

You might recognize her from “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” but that’s not her biggest accomplish. Her ‘real’ film career started more than a decade ago when she acted in Chinese hit movie “Cell Phone,” for which she won best actress at the Hundred Flowers Awards (the Chinese equivalent of the Golden Globes).


33-year-old Bingbing is not only an excellent actress. She’s also a pop star, producer, philanthropist, Louis Vuitton ambassador and high-profile red carpet regular.
