Successful film projects and some smart investments may very well put this star en route to becoming a billionaire.
Ashton Kutcher is a lovable actor and a nice person overall, thriving in Hollywood not just on his good looks but also some strong acting chops. But the acting projects he’s been working on don’t entirely vouch for the sound financial success he’s been enjoying quietly. So much so, that people have started wondering at his brilliant finances. Is Ashton Kutcher a billionaire in reality?
Acting and modelling is not the only source of income for Ashton Kutcher.
- Minting money as an actor
- Kutcher’s smart investments
Well, according to this article, Ashton Kutcher’s net worth is roughly $200 million as of 2020, which makes him a millionaire. So he’s not exactly a billionaire, yet. But with the way the actor has been managing his money, the billionaire stage is not that far away.
Let’s take a look.
Ashton Kutcher’s work as an actor
Kutcher began working in the industry first as a model, where he tasted success, modelling for the likes of Calvin Klein and even going to Paris and Milan. But it was his being cast in the popular sitcom ‘That ‘70s Show’ that Kutcher broke into the world of acting.
He starred in the sitcom for eight years, drawing the notice of producers and subsequently acting in movies like ‘Just Married‘ and producing and starring in shows such as MTV’s ‘Punk’d‘. He even launched his own production company called Katalyst Films. His next big moment came when he replaced Charlie Sheen on ‘Two and a Half Men‘, a coveted role but quite dangerous considering the shoes he had to fill. But, Kutcher did a fantastic job on the show, propelling him further in his acting career.
Some smart investments
It’s quite funny how Kutcher seems to have been typecast into playing the role of a dimwit pretty boy again and again because what he has done in real life is actually quite smart.
Dabbling in venture capitalism, Kutcher has made some very savvy investments which have reaped him substantial amounts of dollars. Mostly focusing on technology investment, he has been an early investor of big names such as Uber, Skype, Spotify, Airbnb, Foursquare, and Pinterest. In fact, the actor is known to have been a far greater technology investor than any other star in Hollywood.
What’s more, along with Guy Oseary, Ron Burkle, and Chris Hollod, Kutcher even co-founded A-Grade Investments. In 2016, “Forbes” estimated that the value of his firm’s portfolio could very well be around the range of $250 million.
Ashton Kutcher seems to know what he’s doing, and as opposed to his more popular roles, he’s definitely not a dimwit, pretty boy. He most certainly seems to be on the route to becoming a billionaire soon enough.
