I don’t think we’ve ever had a celebrity break up more than 50% of their contracts just to be on their own. It seems that there’s been an increase of famous faces leaving show business, and I think it’s because the industry has changed. People are keeping their celebrities shorter, and with more contracts. It’s opened up opportunities for those who are lucky enough to have their own TV show. You’d think that with all the technology out there, producers would be able to track down a celebrity’s previous work and be able to recoup some of the costs of running a show. Weed out the good from the bad – sort of like Monster High!
But how much is Rob Pattinson actually worth? We’ve compiled a list of some of the most interesting stats from around the web, so you can have an idea of how much money you could possibly be paying for all the Pattinson junk in your house. Keep reading for more information.
$100 Million Dollar Manicure
If you’re a girl (or boy) who likes the sparkle and shine of a red or black polish, you might be in for a treat. New York City-based nail polish brand NailzInc introduced the world to the $100 million dollar mani, a glittering nail polish that comes with a lifetime supply of color. As the ad campaign boldly proclaimed, ‘It’s the biggest thing to happen to nails since sliced bread.’
The polish wasn’t intended to be worn as a mani; rather, it was designed to be used as a blush or an accent polish. Still, the attention it received as a potential forever polish was enough to convince nail polish connoisseurs that they needed to try it. Before long, stores across the country were selling out of the curious polish.
$250,000 Squillionaire Sweatshirt
The viral trend of people pretending to be billionaires (or at least millionaires) started in Australia before making its way to North America and Europe. The craze even prompted one entrepreneurial company to design and sell a sweatshirt that appeared to be covered in dollar signs. The company’s goal was to make “your everyday look like you just happen to be living your best life.”
The idea behind the viral trend is that people want to be more like celebrities. In Australia, where the trend started, people were inspired by the success of reality show The Masked Singer. In the USA, people have taken inspiration from Shiny Happy People, where celebrities get to keep the identities of the people they’re imitating. The trend has even spread to Europe, where people have begun to wear the colorful shirts as a way of showing off their wealth.
$60 Trillion Diamond
Back in 2018, a massive diamond broke the previous record for the most expensive diamond ever sold at auction. The 126-carat diamond was later sold to an anonymous buyer for an undisclosed amount of money. The previous record-holder, a 402-carat diamond, had been in the possession of the Diamond Majestic Company since 1925. This record-breaking price tag placed the value of a diamond at roughly $60 trillion. The largest diamond in the world is the Eureka Diamond, a 443-carat behemoth that was discovered in Gabon, Africa in 2011.
Along with gold and palladium, diamonds have become one of the most popular storehouses of value. The price of a diamond has risen in the last five years, which may have made it more attractive as a storehouse of value. It wouldn’t be the first time that a diamond was the preferred medium of exchange during a financial crisis.
$25 Billion To $30 Billion Dollar Diamonds
A year after the $60 trillion diamond record-breaker, another diamond broke several world records at auction. This time, the Seychellois Diamond Company sold a collection of diamonds that placed the value of a diamond at between $25 and $30 billion. The Seychellois Diamond Company is one of the world’s leading producers of diamonds, having discovered nearly all of the world’s largest diamonds. The Seychellois Diamond Company owns a 45-million-carat diamond found in the Wild West of Africa and also claims to have the 12-billion-dollar Eureka Diamond amongst its possessions. This makes the company one of the biggest diamond producers in the world. The value of a diamond has increased by almost 60% since 2015.
How Much is Rob Pattinson Worth?
Before we begin, I want to make it clear that this article only covers the value of Rob Pattinson’s actual physical assets. It doesn’t include the value of his fame or the value of the opportunities that his existence as a public figure has created for others. So, while Rob may be worth $100 million, that’s only because someone (or someones) will pay that amount for the rights to use his image. The question remains: how much is Rob’s image worth?
Just like any other celebrity, the value of Rob Pattinson’s physical presence is largely dependent on his marketability. Simply put, is there someone out there who wants to hire him? More importantly, is there someone out there who is willing to pay for the right to have Rob’s image on their shirt? Or their phone’s screen? Or their Facebook profile picture?
Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer to these questions. However, we can make some reasonable assumptions. First, let’s assume that his latest Rob Pattinson film (aside from Believe in Beauty) is a financial success. The movie is currently in post-production and budgeted to break even. If it were to break even, that would mean that it cost the production company less than $500,000 to make. Now, let’s assume that the movie is a huge hit and makes the production company a profit. In that case, the movie would have likely cost the production company a million dollars or more. So in either scenario, we’re looking at a profit of at least $1 million on a $500,000 investment. Now, if we assume that Rob is able to make another festival movie with a similar budget and profit margin, we’re looking at a potential earnings of $2 million per year. Finally, let’s assume that Rob decides to launch a festival line and chooses to invest $500,000 in the company. In that case, we’re looking at a potential earnings of $1.5 million per year. So, in summary, we have three different scenarios based on three different levels of investment in a Rob Pattinson festival. In the first scenario, we have a $500,000 investment that may return about $1.5 million per year. In the second scenario, we have a $1 million investment that may return about $2 million per year. And in the third scenario, we have a $2 million investment that may return about $3.5 million per year.
Here’s The Issue
As you can see from the examples above, it isn’t exactly easy to put a price tag on celebrity. What’s more, most people aren’t exactly in the habit of putting a price tag on celebrity. Still, it’s difficult to ignore the impact that celebrities have on our society. So, as long as there are people who want to hire them or buy their products, their value will remain high. In some cases, they may even continue to rise. So, as long as there’s a market for their services, they will remain popular and will continue to command a high price.
