1. What Is Catherine Zeta-jones’s Net Worth?

As of 2021, Catherine Zeta-Jones's estimated net worth is a whopping $150 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. And it’s all thanks to her acting credits, endorsement deals and shared assets with her husband, Michael Douglas.

2. How Much Money Has She Made From Acting?

After Steven Spielberg spotted the young star in the Titanic miniseries, Zeta-Jones was chosen to headline The Mask of Zorro, which went on to make over $250 million worldwide. The actress then appeared in successful box office hits like Entrapment, Ocean's Twelve, The Terminal, Intolerable Cruelty and Chicago—which earned her three awards, including an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. While her salary for these titles haven’t been confirmed, we’re sure her paycheck benefited from these successful titles.

3. How Much Does She Get Paid For Endorsement Deals?

Yes, she made a name for herself on the big screen, but her earnings in film pale in comparison to her endorsement deals. Back in 2002, she was named global ambassador for the cosmetics company Elizabeth Arden, Inc. That same year, she signed a contract with T-Mobile that guaranteed $10 million per year, making her the top-earning celebrity endorser at the time, according to AdWeek. Zeta-Jones also cashed in on partnerships with brands like Alfa Romeo, Di Modolo, Lux and QVC.

4. What About Her Music Career?

Had the Chicago star continued to pursue a career as a singer, we’re pretty sure that her songs would be all over the Billboard charts by now. In 1992, she showcased her vocal skills in Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of Spartacus, and in 1995, she dropped her hit single, "In the Arms of Love." She also collaborated with David Essex for a 1994 duet, "True Love Ways," which peaked at number 38 on the U.K. singles chart.

5. And Her Lifestyle Brand, Casa Zeta-jones?

You may have noticed that Zeta-Jones hasn’t done much acting in recent years, aside from minor appearances in shows. Well, that’s because the 52-year-old actress has been focusing on the growth of her lifestyle and beauty brand, Casa Zeta-Jones. While it started out as her signature home collection, it has since expanded to include a line of beauty products, activewear, footwear and even coffee, which she launched earlier this year.

On her official website, she wrote, "For me, creating is more than just a pastime. Everything I have designed has truly been a passion project of mine. I wanted to take this passion a step further and create a brand that's beautiful and luxurious, while still attainable. I have loved every moment of creating, transforming and watching my vision come to life.”

6. Does She Own Real Estate?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Zeta-Jones’s shared assets with her husband account for roughly half of her net worth (their combined net worth is $350 million). The couple own a luxurious 250-acre estate on the coast of Spain, which Douglas purchased back in 1990 for $3.5 million (meaning the value has likely doubled). And in 2015, the couple bought a 13-acre home in New York—complete with a massive pool and tennis court—for $11.3 million before selling it in 2019 for $20.5 million.

That same year, Douglas paid $4.5 million for a new 11,000 square-foot property in New York. He and Zeta-Jones also own a spacious NYC apartment that includes stunning views of Central Park.
