In fact, they tend to be so dangerous, to the point that no insurance company would even want to cover for the actor.
Thanks to his role in films like the Rush Hour movies, the Drunken Master films, Meals on Wheels, and Police Story, Jackie Chan has since earned quite a fortune, more than enough to buy a private jet – which he did.

One of the most recognizable figures in the world today, along with being one of the wealthiest, Bill Gates is often known for being the co-founder of Microsoft. Although his parents encouraged him to study to become a lawyer, he found a deep love and passion for technology at a young age. In fact, during his early teenage years, he already made his very own tic-tac-toe program, allowing users to play against the computer. Well, in retrospect, it’s safe to say that this hobby eventually became the key factor that helped him earn billionaire status.
Despite sharing a significant portion of his wealth on philanthropic endeavors and charity programs, it would come as no surprise to know that Gates saved some for him and his family. One such item he purchased is the lovely Bombardier BD-700 Global Express, which can fly as fast as Mach 1, the speed of sound.
The Most Expensive Amphibious Seaplane | Jimmy Buffett’s Grumman HU-16 Albatross | $62,180
When you mix a passion for traveling with a love for music, you will most likely get the musician Jimmy Buffett. Besides learning to play the trombone and the guitar, he also developed a fondness for exploring thanks to the times he spent sailing with his grandfather. This experience eventually played a major influence in more than a few of his songs, including Come Monday, A Pirate Looks at Forty, Boat Drinks, and Nautical Wheelers.
Besides owning two restaurant chains named after his songs, the Cheeseburger in Paradise and Margaritaville, Buffett also spent a portion of his investment money on a few planes. One such valuable piece in his aircraft collection is the Grumman HU-16 Albatross, named “Hemisphere Dancer,” worth $62,180. Nowadays, though, this beauty spends most of its time on display at the singer’s Margaritaville chain located in Orlando, Florida. With that said, he also owns a Lake Amphibian, a Boeing Stearman, and a Cessna Citation.
The Most Expensive Team Vehicle | Mark Cuban’s Boeing 767-277 | $144.1 Million
For his first attempt at starting a business, 12-year-old Mark Cubanwas selling garbage bags so he could buy his favorite pair of basketball shoes. Along the way, he also sold stamps, coins, and published his own newspapers before he even got his Bachelor of Science degree in Management. Since then, he has invested in more than a few companies and startups, including the film industry’s Magnolia Pictures.
Besides earning an impressive net worth of $4.3 billion, Cuban also landed a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for making the largest single e-commerce transaction to date. In 1999, he purchased, via an online platform, a Boeing 767-277 for a price of $144.1 million. He then added a few customizations to the aircraft, with the most notable one being its now-larger seats – perhaps to ensure his team, the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, a more comfortable ride throughout the trip.
The Most Expensive Porsche | Dr. Dre’s Porsche Panamera | $78,100
Most people would probably know him for his Beats brand of headphones, but Dr. Dreis more than just a businessman. Born Andre Romelle Young, he is also a rapper who has released hit albums like The Chronicle, 2001, and the compilation album, Dr. Dre Presents the Aftermath. Along the way, he has also taken credit for producing songs for many of today’s famous rap artists, including Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, 2Pac, and the Game.
Through the years, Dr. Dre has earned quite a fortune for himself thanks to his many ventures inside and outside the music industry. As a way to celebrate his achievements, the rapper-producer decided to buy himself a lovely Porsche Panamera. This fancy-looking ride has just about everything that can impress even many of today’s well-known celebrities, all while keeping a relatively affordable price of $78,100.
The Most Expensive Coupe | Seal’s Ferrari 360 Spider | $84,500
Like many celebrities, Seal’scareer began with humble beginnings. His first singing gigs were at local bars before he had the chance to join a band and tour in Japan. He then joined another group in Thailand before he decided to continue his career as a solo artist. Soon after, Seal’s fame rose when he collaborated with Adamski, taking credit for singing the lyrics of the producer and DJ’s song Killer. Today, Seal is most known in the music industry for releasing hit records like Kiss from a Rose, Amazing, and of course, Crazy.
Nowadays, even people who aren’t hardcore automobile enthusiasts can appreciate the beauty and the effort made into making many of Ferrari’s cars. One such vehicle in its gallery of beauties is its two-seater convertible, the 360 Spider. With its impressive design and amazing all-around features, including its capability of reaching top speeds of 180 mph, it’s no wonder that Seal wanted to have this ride for his own.
The Most Expensive SUV | Justin Bieber’s Range Rover | $84,950
With the internet becoming a more convenient platform for everyone to use, more and more people have since become famous. One such person is the famous singer Justin Bieber. Before his shot to fame, he would often record videos of himself performing covers of his favorite artists’ songs and upload them to YouTube. Since then, he has become a worldwide sensation, having released many of today’s hits like What Do You Mean, Sorry, Love Yourself, and Cold Water.
Although sports cars are undoubtedly gorgeous, luxury SUVs also radiate a degree of beauty to them. With that in mind, it would come as no surprise to know that Bieber is one of the many celebrities who proudly owns a Range Rover. Other rides he has sheltered in his garage over the years include a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, a first-gen Audi R8, a Fisker Karma, and a Lamborghini Aventador.
The Most Expensive Bonus For Acting | Daniel Craig’s Aston Martin DBS | Estimated $169,520
A passion for something is often realized at a young age, which was exactly the case for Daniel Craig. At the age of 6, he already developed a knack for acting. After performing on more than a few of his school’s stage plays, he decided to become an actor and continued his studies at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Although he has starred in movies like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Layer Cake, he is mostly known for his acting credit as the suave secret agent, James Bond, in the new 007 movies.
For his automobiles, it’s safe to say that Craig has the same standards as his on-screen counterpart, James Bond. In fact, one of the cars he now keeps in his garage is the very same Aston Martin DBS model used in one of the recent Bond movies – it was given to him as a gift after production concluded.
The Most Expensive Family Vehicle | Jessica Simpson’s Range Rover | $84,950
Like many celebrities, Jessica Simpson began her pursuit of stardom at a young age. In fact, at one point during her childhood, she auditioned for a part in The Mickey Mouse Club show alongside at-the-time child stars Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, and Britney Spears. Although she didn’t land a role, she didn’t give up on her dreams. Thanks to her determination, she finally garnered widespread recognition thanks to her albums like Sweet Kisses, In This Skin, and ReJoyce: The Christmas Album.
In more recent years, though, Simpson has focused most of her investment money on the fashion business, most notably her clothing line called The Jessica Simpson Collection. Even so, the singer also takes time to provide for her family’s wants and needs, one such thing being their very own Range Rover. With this car in her garage, perhaps it’s safe to assume that she loves to have a few road trips from time to time with her loved ones.
The Most Expensive Mansion | Michael Phelps’ Arizona Mansion | Undisclosed Amount
Michael Phelps might have retired from swimming, but he certainly has not given up a life of luxury. He has burned through several houses recently and has just sold his Arizona home for $3.5 million. He traded this for another house in the same Phoenix suburb. It is likely that since he is no longer a bachelor and is married to Miss California USA Nicole Johnson that he wanted to own a bigger house – he is starting a family after all.
His former house had awesome flooring, measuring a total of 6,088 square feet. Of course, it also had a swimming pool. This new house is estimated to be $10,000 per square foot, so while we may not know the exact price, it is for sure in the multi-million range. It sits on two acres of land and just close to their former home. It also has six bedrooms and eight baths, which is more than enough space for a growing family. It also has a hot tub, sauna, and a barbecue area if they host parties.
The Most Expensive Car | Olivia Wilde’s Range Rover |$84,950
Known as Thirteen in House, Olivia Wilde is not known to be very luxurious. In fact, she is an advocate of buying secondhand and anything that can no longer be used should be recycled sustainably. Apart from being an environmentalist, she is also a female rights activist and has been very vocal about rights to justice, health, and education.
One thing that the actress indulges in, however, is her Range Rover. While it is not the flashiest car it is among the most popular among celebrities. The vehicle is still a status symbol, given the steep price tag. It is also highly reliable and could get Wilde to her destination easily. Parts are also easy to find, and if she does not like the car anymore, she can always resell it at a modest value. We can hazard a guess that she does not drive a gas engine, but a diesel V6, given her concern for the environment.
The Most Expensive Vehicle | Ice-T’s Fisker Karma | $102,000
American rapper Ice-T is rather known for his career as an underground rapper in the 1980s and his founding of the heavy metal band Body Count. He also dabbled in voice acting, as well as appeared on numerous films and TV shows. Of note among those are Ricochet, New Jack City, and Who’s the Man?
Ice-T married Nicole Austin in 2002 and the two have owned many expensive real estate properties together. All of these probably have the best home security system installed. However, what Ice-T owns, that we’d like to talk about is his Fisker Karma. It is rather expensive, at $102,000 starting price. For this price point though, he gets a luxury electric vehicle powered by a 2.0 L turbocharged Ecotec VVT DI LNFI4 engine that has two 201 brake horsepower motors. It is environment-friendly, which is a good attitude to share with his child, Chanel.
The Most Expensive Engagement Ring | Gwen Stefani’s Diamond Ring | $500,000
Who else could embody the life of luxury other than Luxurious singer Gwen Stefani? She is also the voice behind Hollaback Girl and The Sweet Escape that has topped various charts the moment they were released. As one of the most loved singers of all time, she certainly can claim to have it all. Apart from singing, she also ventured into fashion when she launched L, as part of her LAMB collection of accessories and clothing.
What is even more impressive is that when Blake Shelton popped the question back in 2020, he accompanied that question with a $500,000 engagement ring. While money is certainly not an issue for Stefani, and should not be an issue for anyone, it would be very hard to say no to that. A ring, after all, is a very valid and wise investment. She said yes, of course—and fans are just excited when the big day would be.
The Most Expensive Private Plane | Lady Gaga’s 757 Jet | $67 million
Lady Gaga is noted to be quirky and ostentatious in character. Her outfits are often controversial and her performances much-talked-about. Her recent rendition of the national anthem during the presidential inauguration, for example, was the talk of the town for several days. She also has owned many things that are considered luxuries and the envy of many. Among these are her outfits, a koi pet, and various Michael Jackson items.
Among the most expensive, perhaps is her Boeing 757 private jet. It was bought for $67 million and certainly provides Lady Gaga with all the benefits of a luxurious life. She no longer has to queue up and be bothered with lengthy check-in procedures for commercial flights. Given its gas or fuel consumption, environmentalists might not be too happy about the plane though, but for Lady Gaga, it is a must.
The Most Expensive Bathroom Fixture | Kim Kardashian’s Gold-Plated Toilet | $750,000
The Kardashians are known to love expensive things, and Kim Kardashian is no exception. This is evident to anyone who has followed their reality TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. She has developed a huge online following with hundreds of millions who follow her on both Instagram and Facebook. So any brand who would want to advertise with her can surely get a huge audience. Over the years, she has owned many things, including cars, houses, and bags. The most expensive in her bag collection is a $100,000 Birkin bag.
Did you know though that she and Kanye West had their Bel-Air home renovated and they decided to add something shiny to their bathroom in the process? The couple dropped $750,000 on four gold-plated seats for the toilet. It is scary to think of robbers being interested in the facility. They probably have a home security system anyway, so they should not worry about it.
The Most Expensive Car | Lil Wayne’s Aston Martin Vanquish | $287,650
Lil Wayne is a man of many talents—he is a rapper, an entrepreneur, and a record executive. He made his breakthrough in the music industry with his album Tha Block Is Hot. What made him more recognizable though was when he released his sixth album, Tha Carter III, in 2008. He had some health issues in 2012, but it was something his health insurance company would have probably covered. We’re glad that he seems to have recovered well.
The rapper also likes collecting expensive things, including vehicles. One of the most expensive in his collection is an Aston Martin Vanquish, which costs at least $287,650. The grand tourer was first introduced in 2001 and is known to be used in James Bond movies. Lil Wayne owns a new release that could reach a top speed of 201 mph when flooring the pedal. He has to be careful though as we do not want him to get involved in an accident.
The Most Expensive Coupe | Manny Pacquiao’s Ferrari 458 Italia | $291,744
The boxing legend is known for his speed in the ring and for his almost spotless records in professional boxing. Apart from being a boxer, he is also a politician serving as a Senator of the Philippines. He has won many titles and accolades and is given credit for being the first boxer to win a championship in five weight classes and the first boxer to win major world titles in half of the eight glamour divisions in boxing.
Among the many expensive items he owns is a Ferrari 458 Italia. This is not his first car, as that honor goes to a Chevrolet, but the Ferrari is the most expensive at the price tag of $291,744. What is under the hood? It is a 4.5 L Ferrari F136 F V8 engine that can make the vehicle go from 0 to 60 in under 3 seconds. The top speed is around 210 mph, which can come in handy when Pacquiao is late for a meeting at the Senate.
The Most Expensive Race Car | 50 Cent’s 2008 Maserati MC12 | $800,000
While his name is 50 Cent, he is not worth cents but millions of dollars. He rose to fame because of his impact on the hip hop industry and is described as the master of lyrical brevity. What he saves in words, he makes up in money over the years. He is worth $30 million now and that number could still increase as he makes suitable investments.
Among the many things he owns that are expensive is a car that is not legally allowed to be on the street- a 2008 Maserati MC12. If you are wondering why it is not allowed, it is because the vehicle is meant to be a race car as it has a top speed of 205 mph—certainly not designed even for the freeways. The car is stylish though and it is a status symbol so that is why 50 Cent did not hesitate to spend $800,000 for it.
The Most Expensive Gift | Justin Combs’ Maybach car | $360,000
Justin Combs is P. Diddy’s firstborn and he loves spoiling his child. Sean Combs, which is P. Diddy’s real name, certainly has the money to splurge. Justin though has had some controversies lately as he was reportedly ticketed and towed away from a party in Miami because he rode a jet ski after dark. P. Diddy might need to have a sit-down and serious talk with Justin on that note.
When he came of age though, specifically when he turned 16 years old, Sean bought and gave Justin a Maybach car. That vehicle is easily worth $360,000. The rapper not only sponsored this car but also hosted an extravagant party for Justin to celebrate hitting that driving age. Many friends were invited. We just hope that Justin would have excellent money management skills as he grows older. He would need that to manage all his finances that he earns and even that of his father.
The Most Expensive Car | Kanye West’s Lamborghini Aventador | $399,500
American rapper Kanye West is not just into rapping, but also a fashion designer and a record producer. He is known to be an influential figure in the development of mainstream hip hop and popular music in the 21st century. He is very outspoken about his views—which are often controversial and would gain media attention right away. The rapper is married right now to reality TV star Kim Kardashian.
West owns many expensive things, including the most expensive sneakers in the world. What we wanted to talk about, however, is his Lamborghini Aventador, which was gifted to him by his wife. The Aventador reportedly costs at least $399,500. Knowing West, he would make custom changes to it and add designs to his liking so it probably would cost more than the base rate. The vehicle is powered by a 6.5 L V12 engine and has all the classy credits given to a Lamborghini.
The Most Expensive Vintage Vehicle | Jerry Seinfeld’s 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS | $1.4 million
Sitcom king Jerry Seinfeld is popular for his eponymous show Seinfeld on NBC. It ran from 1989 to 1998 and was a hit among its American audience. His humor is well-appreciated and he was named by Comedy Central as the 12th greatest stand-up comedian of all time. Apart from comedy, he is also the creator and the host of the Netflix series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Speaking of cars, the comedian is a car enthusiast. The most expensive in his collection is a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS which is estimated to be worth from $500,000 to as high as $1.4 million. The vintage car is fitted with a 2.7 boxer-6 engine capable of delivering 227 horsepower. This classic car is certainly an eye-catcher, and in case Seinfeld tries to sell it, it is predicted to command a high resale price making it a worthy investment. However, it looks like he has no plans right now of doing so.
The Most Expensive Limited Edition Car | Jay Leno’s McLaren F1 | $12 million
Television Hall of Fame inductee Jay Leno is famous for her late-night show The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. This was eventually canceled in 2010, but he moved on to becoming a touring stand-up comedian. He has been in over 200 live performances a year across the US and Canada. He has also been a part of the comedy show Last Man Standing since 2015.
The comedian has amassed wealth over the years that he could afford life’s luxuries like a McLaren F1. This highly-exclusive model was launched in 1993 and only 106 of these were ever produced. That makes Leno the proud owner of a limited-edition vehicle. He probably didn’t need loans to buy the vehicle so he certainly deserves it. Leno also has a charitable heart and has been involved in charity events. However, he has suffered some negative publicity. We’re glad that he remained undaunted and persevered.
The Most Expensive Car | David Beckham’s Rolls-Royce Drophead | $492,000
David Beckham was a former professional football player and is also the current president and a co-owner of the Inter-Miami CF. He has played for Manchester United, Milan, LA Galaxy, and Paris Saint-Germain, among other teams. His career spanned 20 years and he was well-loved and well-cheered by fans. The football star’s range of passing and bending free-kicks remain unrivaled. He was even inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame back in 2008.
Beckham is known to enjoy the luxuries money could afford. In his wedding with former Spice Girl Victoria Adams, they bought a cake worth $800,000—a significant amount now, even more so in 1999. He also did not hesitate writing a check for $492,000, at the least, for a Rolls-Royce Drophead. This baby is among the most luxurious makes in England and is equipped with a V12 engine. Well, given his high credit standing, and net worth, maintaining the car would not be a problem for the football player.
The Most Expensive Vehicle | Samuel L. Jackson’s Maybach 57 | $500,000
Whenever we see Samuel L. Jackson in a movie, we know that things are about to go serious and life-threatening. He is such an iconic actor that he was able to maintain separate identities even though he played high-profile and widely popular characters in Hollywood, such as Nick Fury and Mace Windu. He also lent his voice to many other animated films, TV series, and video games—because his voice is just perfect.
He owns a lot of expensive things, including a house that is worth $8.35 million. This 12,000-square-foot house is in the most exclusive gated community in Beverly Park, which means it probably has the latest home security system for their privacy. He also is the proud driver and owner of a $500,000-worth Maybach 57 which has a V12 engine under the hood. It is among the most luxurious of the line and has an air conditioning system with climate control, a voice-recognition navigation system, and a remarkable infotainment system.
The Most Expensive Car | Nicholas Cage’s Ferrari Enzo | $670,000
Nicholas Cage is the man behind dozens of hit films that credit his amazing skill and talent in acting. Some of his most notable movies are Moonstruck, Con Air, The Rock, the Ghost Rider franchise, and many more. He will no doubt remain a legendary figure in the field of entertainment once he decides to retire and settle down for good.
In recent times, Cage is seen driving around town with his luxurious supercar, the Ferrari Enzo, and the one in his possession is 1 out of only 399 models produced worldwide. A monstrous car despite its age, with a 6.0L V12 engine that can output 660 hp and can go 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds. The Ferrari Enzo may have a bad fuel economy given its older engine but that wouldn’t be a problem for Cage with the hundreds of millions in his bank account, eliminating any need for loans or the like.
The Most Expensive Car|Steven Tyler’s Hennessy Venom GT Spyder | $800,000
Steven Tyler was the famous lead singer of the world-famous rock band, Aerosmith, and he has continued his journey with music even after his prime days as a rock star. He has also lent his talents to popular singing competitions such as the American Idol, giving contestants inspiration and the motivation to keep chasing their dreams. Tyler wasn’t always the frontman of Aerosmith though, as he took up the drums before eventually taking up the mantle of the group’s lead vocalist. He has over 40 years of powerful performances and solid rock and roll, making him a living legend for every sense of the word.
With Tyler’s global success, it’s no surprise that he’s made pretty solid financial investments for himself over the last few decades. One of his most expensive purchases is the Hennessy Venom GT Spyder which is the fastest street-legal car in the world. The Venom GT Spyder that he has is only one out of five models made of that same year.
The Most Expensive Car |Tom Brady’s Bugatti Veyron| $3 million
Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr., or better known as Tom Brady, used to be a quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is the first NFL player in history to win six Super Bowl Championships. With such an outstanding career, it’s no surprise that he has made quite a fortune for himself throughout the years. In fact, his car collection alone is worth over $4 million, which is befitting for one of the wealthiest football professionals.
One of Brady’s most expensive vehicles is the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, an impressive display of engineering is packed into this supercar and it must be a blast for the NFL player to drive around town. The Veyron used to be the fastest street car that can run a straight line and is still among the fastest in terms of acceleration even after getting dethroned by the Koenigsegg Agera. With all these financial investments that Brady’s made, it seems that he has a talented adviser to back him up.
The Most Expensive Car |Simon Cowell’s Jaguar Eagle Speedster| $1 million
Simon Phillip Cowell is one of England’s proudest natives as he is one of the music industry’s most coveted executives. He is an entrepreneur, recording producer, producer, and television personality with hundreds of appearances made on several popular TV shows such as American Idol and The X Factor. It’s because of these endeavors that he has allowed himself to enjoy certain pleasures in life, one of those being the acquisition of luxury vehicles.
The English entrepreneur has plenty of expensive cars in his collection but his most exquisite vehicle is the Jaguar Eagle Speedster. The car is basically a redefined Jaguar E-Type and is quite possibly the rarest car that Cowell has ever owned. The price tag on one of these vehicles is around $1 million with another $500,000 for the coupe, certainly not a financial investment that anyone would hastily make given the price.
The Most Expensive Car |Chris Brown’sLamborghini Aventador SV | estimated $700,000
Chris Brown was a teenage global sensation back in the day that swooned the hearts of women with songs like, Run It!, Kiss Kiss, and Forever. He turned into a world-class talent and has consistently proved to everyone that he is one of the industry’s best musicians. Brown is also an amazing performer and his concerts sell out stadiums whenever he goes on tour. No wonder the singer has won a Grammy award, which was for his 2011 album, F.A.M.E. It is truly inspiring to see how far he has gone in his career and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he made a smooth transition into acting when he decides to stop performing on stage.
As a result of his hard work and dedication, Brown has made a lot of money over the years and with the help of his financial advisor, his wealth has sustained pretty well. However, that doesn’t mean that he can’t have lavish spending habits, as the singer has made uber-expensive purchases in the past. One of them is his famous Lamborghini Aventador SV, which he customized from the ground up with upgraded wheels, a new paint job, and an exclusive interior upholstery upgrade that he had specially made.
The Most Expensive Yacht |Steve Jobs’ Venus Yacht|$120 million

Jobs drastically changed the company’s direction when he reimagined some of the products and introduced new ones in the ‘90s.

His mother was a skilled seamstress who taught him all the techniques he needed to create his own clothing inventions.
One of the perks of being a world-famous fashion designer is that they get to enjoy a few luxuries in life.

The genius behind the Armani group is certainly one of the industry’s living legends.

He has truly reshaped the way fashion is viewed and has kept a certain standard that is unrivaled even by the top brands in the market today.
Armani’s success is an inspiration to many people and it’s no surprise that the fashion designer decided to reward himself with the creation of a $60 million, 213-foot yacht. The yacht is so luxurious that just maintaining it would make a thousand euros seem like a drop in the bucket compared to the total cost, as described by Armani himself.
The Most Expensive Yacht | Johnny Depp’sVajoliroja/Amphitrite Yacht |$22 million
Johnny Depp is a world-famous celebrity actor with many iconic roles in blockbuster films such as Pirates of The Caribbean, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Sleepy Hollow, Alice in Wonderland, Fantastic Beasts, and many more. His role as Captain Jack Sparrow is a particular character and many fans around the world have come to recognize that he is the only person capable of giving justice to this role. It’s no surprise that people feel that way as the series has become a billion-dollar franchise, ranking as the 14th highest selling series of all time.
Depp has certainly worked hard to achieve his legendary status and he deserves all the praises he gets where credit is due. The results of his success have translated into expensive purchases such as the mesmerizing and state-of-the-art 156-foot yacht that is named the Vajoliroja, or more recently, The Amphitrite. The yacht features the latest technology in communications and entertainment and is more than capable of housing a celebrity family for a long trip.

Joanne Rowling, or better known as J.K. Rowling, is the author behind the legendary seven-book series, Harry Potter, which is also the source material behind one of the highest-grossing film franchises of all time. The books themselves have sold over 500 million copies worldwide, and because of their adaptation into a blockbuster film series, Rowling’s Harry Potter has become a billion-dollar franchise. The Harry Potter films have also inspired another franchise in the same universe, The Fantastic Beasts series, and is also a critically-acclaimed set of movies with an all-star cast. It’s still a surprise to many once they hear that the original manuscript for Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone got rejected by 12 publishing houses before finally getting published. Those companies must be regretting their decision today, given the fact that Rowling is now a billionaire with many writing credits because of her books.
As a result of Rowling’s success, she recently acquired the Amphitrite from Johnny Depp after getting entranced by its beauty on a voyage trip.

Even though he doesn’t own a yacht, he rented one out from the billionaire politician and current Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Maybe as an environmentalist, he didn’t need these types of investments. The mega yacht was custom built according to its luxurious and grand specifications and was later named the Topaz.
NICOLAS CAGE – Sarita – $20 million
American filmmaker and actor Nicolas Kim Coppola, or professionally known as Nicolas Cage, has been several major cinematic awards. He has a total net worth of $25 million.

The Galactica Star doesn’t run short of any amenities and toys to keep the pop superstar and her guests pre-occupied. It has a swimming pool, jacuzzi, and even a helipad!
Beyonce doesn’t really own this massive luxury yacht. Kola Aluko, a Nigerian personality, owns it. What makes it even impressive for Beyonce is that she leases it for $900,000 a week. With that kind of lease, one would think that she’d have enough to buy her own Galactica Star. Her financial advisor certainly doesn’t mind as she has her astounding fortune to cover the expenses.
The Beckhams – Seafair – $4 million
David Beckham & Victoria Beckham surely don’t run out of luxurious toys and properties. One of their most expensive purchases and investments is their Seafair superyacht.

Her yacht of choice for going on several boating adventures together with her friends is the Axioma. However, Kendall, despite having an astounding $45 million net worth, doesn’t own her own Axioma superyacht. In fact, she leases the boat for an undisclosed amount. We’re confident that her financial advisor would rather have Kendall purchase her own yacht rather than paying for a potentially expensive lease. Then again, she’s also worth $45 million, so paying a lease for a yacht shouldn’t be something she can’t handle.
The Axioma made an appearance at Kendall’s 19th birthday party. She used the Axioma to charter into Monaco for the Monaco Grand Prix in 2015. Onboard Kendall’s Axioma were popular celebrities like Hailey Baldwin, Justin Bieber, and Bella and Gigi Hadid.

It also doesn’t run out of space for guests. It can comfortably accommodate up to ten guests.
Richard Branson’s Necker Belle catamaran costs around $5 million, $2 million more than the MSRP of a generic Necker Belle catamaran. We’re confident that the price hike came in the form of different amenities and the submarine that it comes with called the Necker Nymph. Branson’s financial advisor certainly won’t bat an eye as $5 million is just chump change to his $4 billion net worth.

There has been minimal information regarding Brad and Angelina’s boating habits. However, it has been rumored that Brad purchased a yacht worth $7.5 million back in 2013. We certainly don’t think that Brad’s financial advisor would have anything to say about his admiration for classic sail yachts as he has a substantial net worth for himself.

Now the owner of the Fijian paradise, Namale Resort & Spa, it’s no surprise how the place looks ambitious and stimulating. The beautiful property is now valued at $52 million, which Robbins bought when he was only 29 years old for $12.5 million.
The rich and famous and the celebrities come to the picturesque, adults-only resort and spa to experience the island life in 525 acres of virtually untouched land.
There is no shortage of activities in Namale offers. In addition, dedicated staff will make the lives of the guests easier with a 4-to-1 staff-to-guest ratio. No one can deny that Namale is a pleasant paradise to the eyes and the soul.
ROBERT DE NIRO | NOBU RYOKAN | EXPECTED $1B REVENUE
The American actor Robert De Niro has been in the hotel business since 2008. Still, it wasn’t until he created the Nobu empire with celebrity chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa and film producer and entrepreneur Meir Teper. Currently, they have 13 hotels and with five more on the way. Like Nobu Ryokan in Malibu, the hotels exude a serene atmosphere and embody the relaxed luxury and aesthetic of Japan. De Niro explains that the two passions he has – the film and hospitality industries – in a way, have likeness and inspires a certain degree of creativity in him.
The Nobu Hospitality empire is expected to reach $1 billion in revenue, their group reported. The hotels attract guests with the Japanese tradition that defines the brand. Tatami mats, shoji screens, hand-crafter teaks soaking tubs beneath the stars, and rooms having their own Zen garden are just some of the things that will make you want to go and experience the place. It’s easy to imagine a place where you can lounge and relax to the peaceful sound of the crashing waves from the patio. In case you’re still looking for that sweet spot, then Nobu Ryokan is that place.
