The Hollywood lifestyle looks like an enviable one – Hollywood stars have access to luxuries the average Joe can only dream of. Big mansions, fast cars, a loaded bank account — the list goes on. But every celebrity will tell you that superstardom is a double-edged sword. Along with the glitz and glamour, celebrities also have to deal with swarms of paparazzi when they’re out and about, the public’s eyes glued to their every move, and more.
1. Jeff Bezos | Net Worth: $150 Billion | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $1.2 Million
Jeff Bezos is the billionaire founder of Amazon, the biggest e-commerce platform today. He is known for starting the company from his garage. This venture has made him one of the wealthiest men in the world.
Not everyone is a fan, however. Bezos receives a lot of negative pushback for his immense wealth. As such, it only makes sense that the man would need to spend a pretty penny on security. In addition, he needs to protect his assets, so the man spends over $1 million on security each year.
2. Tom Cruise | Net Worth: $600 Million | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $2 Million
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were married for 5 years but got divorced in 2012. They had a daughter, Suri, together during their marriage. Tom Cruise is one of the biggest actors in the U.S. so he requires security for himself as well as his family.
Apparently the action star pays about $2 million in security costs between his own security and his ex-wife and daughter. Suri is only 16 years old and already has more expensive security than most adults!
3. Johnny Depp | Net Worth: $150 Million | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $2 Million
Johnny Depp is known for being something of a shapeshifter on screen. He’s played everything from Edward Scissorhands and Willy Wonka to Gilbert Grape and the Lone Ranger. He is most well-known for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Playing this many well-loved roles is how you make the big bucks! Johnny Depp has been acting since he was very young and has grown a large fanbase. Being such a high profile actor, he needs good security to keep him safe from crazed fans and paparazzi. Good security costs!
4. Mark Zuckerberg | Net Worth: $55 Billion | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $22 Million
Mark Zuckerberg is an entrepreneur who has accumulated billions of dollars by creating Facebook. Facebook is one of the biggest social media platforms and was created at a time that social media was still just emerging.
As the co-founder and CEO of Facebook and one of the world’s youngest billionaires, he needs to protect himself and his wife. In total, he spends a whopping $22 million annually on security. Better safe than sorry! But those are some well paid security guards.
5. Larry Ellison | Net Worth: $104 Billion | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $2 Million
Larry Ellison is a name you might not have heard because he remains much more low-key than some of the other billionaire moguls like Zuckerberg, Bezos, and Musk. He is the co-founder and former CEO of the Oracle Corporation, a computer technology company.
He is estimated to be about the 9th wealthiest man in the world, but he came from very humble beginnings. He spends about $2 million on security annually. This is less than some of the other billionaires on this list because he does keep a lower profile.
6. 50 Cent | Net Worth: $40 Million | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $1 Million
50 Cent is a huge rapper known for songs such as “In Da Club” and “Candy Shop”. He’s made a reputation for himself as being someone you don’t want to mess with. It might be surprising to hear this rough and tough rapper spends about $1 million a year on security.
But anyone that is in the public eye requires some level of protection. The amount you spend on security only grows as your popularity grows. 50 Cent started as a rapper and has since grown his brand to become an actor and entrepreneur as well.
7. Angelina Jolie | Net Worth: $120 Million | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $2 Million
Angelina Jolie is known for many acting roles, but she is also well-known for her marriage to Brad Pitt. The two were married for 12 years and have 6 children together. Their relationship was known as one of the biggest “power couples” of the 2000s.
She needs security and bodyguards for herself as well as all of her children. So she pays a pretty penny for it. Though the couple has separated, we assume that both parents contribute to the security required for their children.
8. Kris Jenner | Net Worth: $170 Million | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $500,000
Kris Jenner has built an empire by building the careers of each of her daughters. Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie each have their own business empires. And the family has become one of the most high profile families of all time through their reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
They’re high profile and extremely polarizing. They have millions of fans as well as millions of people who do not like them. Paparazzi follow them everywhere they go and they don’t really ever have a moment of peace so the entire family requires a lot of security at all times.
9. Gigi Hadid | Net Worth: $29 Million | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $1 Million
Gigi Hadid and her sister, Bella, have become some of the highest paid models in the U.S. The model required security with her rise to fame but increased it after an incident where a “fan” picked her up.
Her security costs also went up when she and Zayn Malik had a daughter in 2020. The supermodel spends about $1 million on security each year. Zayn Malik, the reformer member of boyband One Direction also contributes to their daughter’s security.
10. Elon Musk | Net Worth: $20 Billion | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $22 Million
Elon Musk has accumulated billions of dollars in his creation of Tesla, the first accessible all electric car. The success of Tesla has translated into Space exploration as well. Elon has become more prevalent in the public eye with the rise of Tesla.
He has also recently purchased Twitter for $44 billion! The successful entrepreneur has made himself something of a celebrity as well as an entrepreneur. He pays an insane amount for security. $22 million dollars go toward protecting him, his family, and his company.
11. Cristiano Ronaldo | Net Worth: $500 Million | Annual BodyGuard Cost: $800,000
Cristiano Ronaldo has become one of the most famous soccer players of all time. The Portuguese player plays for Manchester United and has a net worth of $500 million. He’s received great notoriety for his skill as well as his good looks.
He and his partner, Georgina Rodriguez have 5 children. 2 of which are from a previous relationship and 2 are via surrogate. Ronaldo pays a yearly price of about $800,000 to keep his family safe. Athletes require protection as well!
Salma Hayek takes a dip in blue bikini while yachting in Mexico with family
Salma Hayek enjoyed a splash in the sea while vacationing in Los Cabos, Mexico, with billionaire husband François-Henri Pinault and some of their children.
The 56-year-old actress showcased her curves in a striking blue-and-white printed bikini with gold accents and accessorized the look with a duo of necklaces, going makeup-free and letting her hair down for the fun-filled family outing.
Hayek has sent pulses racing all summer with her sexy snaps, whether she’s celebrating National Bikini Day, squeezing in a workout or boating around the world.
As for how she stays looking ageless, the star has said she forgoes Botox injections in favor of meditation and frequency machines to maintain her youthful appearance.
Hayek was seen enjoying her day out on a yacht, enjoying a dip and spending time with Pinault, whom she married in 2009.
The fashion mogul matched his wife in blue swim trunks, and Hayek later layered on a crochet-trimmed cover-up in the same shade.
The couple share daughter Valentina Pinault, 16, and the French businessman has three children from previous relationships: daughter Mathilde and son François, both from his marriage to Dorothée Lepère, and son Augustin, whom he shares with with model Linda Evangelista.
Evangelista recently joined her fellow OG supermodels Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell on the cover of Vogue’s September issue and shared a behind-the-scenes peek at her sweet relationship with Hayek.
“I was sick at Thanksgiving. And Salma got on the plane with her daughter, came here, and made Thanksgiving dinner,” Evangelista said. “She made a feast — a beautiful, beautiful meal. I had told her that I wasn’t going to have Thanksgiving; I wasn’t feeling well. And she said, ‘Oh yes you are: I am coming.’ And poof, she was here.”
From the kitchen to Los Cabos, it seems Hayek can do it all.
Salma Hayek, 57, reveals the secret to her fit bikini body — and it’s not exercise
Salma Hayek is spilling the secrets behind her fit physique.
The actress, 57, credited practicing meditation over intense exercise as the key to staying youthful in a new interview.
“I really believe it is. People say it’s exercising. I think it’s meditation,” she told “Entertainment Tonight.“
“You have to find your way. For me, exercising is hard,” she admitted. “It’s really, really difficult to have the discipline to do it. But meditation is a walk in the park, because it’s my own form of it.”
Hayek added that she practices the routine “every day” and takes the time to “sit in a moment with yourself.”
The “Frida” star previously gushed about the mindfulness technique on a July episode of Kelly Ripa’s SiriusXM podcast, “Let’s Talk Off Camera.”
“When I don’t [meditate] for some time, guess what? Not only [does] the face starts to drop and everything starts to drop, [but also] my herniated disc, the problem in my neck, the problem in my hip, my ankles [comes back]. I start breaking down,” she said at the time.
Hayek explained that she has even gotten to the point of her meditation routine where she feels energy “dancing” through her body.
“Sometimes when I’m doing it, people tell me when I come out of the room, ‘Oh my God, you look 20 years old,’” she raved.
The Mexican-American beauty also divulged that she’s never gotten Botox and instead relies on “frequency machines” in addition to her meditation practices.
“The people that do the machines say that the results I get, they don’t get with other people,” she spilled.
Hayek has not been shy in showing off the results of her health and wellness routines and even recently shared a sultry snap in a red bikini for her 57th birthday.
‘Hot girl’ Billie Eilish reveals chest tattoo in rare bikini photo
Billie Eilish’s fans are happier than ever after seeing this sexy snap.
The “Bad Guy” songstress popped up in an Instagram post shared by pal Annabel Zimmer (daughter of famed composer Hans Zimmer) Saturday, soaking up the sun in a boldly printed Miaou bikini top and Versace shades.
The rare swimsuit pic also marks the first time Eilish, 21, has shown off her chest tattoo of her surname, which she once swore fans wouldn’t “ever see.”
In 2021, Rolling Stone reported Eilish had her last name inked “in an ornate, gothic font” the day after the 2020 Grammys, where she scooped up five awards including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist.
“I have one here that says ‘Eilish.’ Yes, I love myself,” Eilish explained of the design during her annual Vanity Fair “Same Interview” video later that same year.
She has several other tattoos, including a few “guardian angel fairies” on her left wrist and hand — from “a little fairy book called ‘Fairyopolis,’” as Eilish told Vanity Fair — and a large dragon winding up her right thigh and hip, which she referred to as a “big boy” in the same video interview.
Although the “Ocean Eyes” hitmaker’s personal style has continued to evolve from baggy clothes to more feminine looks in recent years, she appeared shy about the revealing picture, as she reacted to the post with a see-no-evil monkey emoji.
However, her admirers didn’t hold back while dropping a series of thirsty remarks.
“You’re beautiful, I love you,” one person replied to Eilish’s comment, while another wrote, “my heart stopped cause of you.”
Other comments included, “life as a REAL REAL REALLLYYYY hot girl,” “Missgurl we’re not breathing” and “you look very sexy 🥵.”
Eilish’s bikini bombshell comes weeks after she fired back at the “f—king bozos” who have called her a “sellout” for embracing her femininity.
“I spent the first 5 years of my career getting absolutely OBLITERATED by you fools for being boy-ish and dressing how I did & constantly being told I’d be hotter if I acted like a woman,” she shared via her Instagram Stories in May.
“And now when I feel comfortable enough to wear anything remotely feminine or fitting, I CHANGED and am a sellout.. and ‘what happened to her’ oMg iT’s nOt thE sAmE biLlie she’s just like the rest blah blah.”
She then told followers, “FUN FACT! Did you know that women are multifaceted!!!!!??? Shocking right?? Believe it or not, women can be interested in multiple things.”
The Oscar-winning musician has spoken candidly about her struggles to love and accept her body in the past.
“Going through my teenage years of hating myself and all that stupid s—t, a lot of it came from my anger toward my body, and how mad I was at how much pain it’s caused me, and how much I’ve lost because of things that happened to it,” Eilish told Vogue in January, referencing a hip injury that kept her from pursuing a dance career.
“I felt like my body was gaslighting me for years,” she added. “I had to go through a process of being like, my body is actually me. And it’s not out to get me.”
