After years of speculation and rumors, it’s been confirmed that Gossip Girl star Jeffrey Pattinson will be making more than your average celebrity today. According to a new report from The Sun, the actor, who has been dating Katy Perry since 2012, will be earning £150,000 ($200,000) per month, plus £50,000 ($70,000) for travel and living expenses. That’s a total of £200,000 ($270,000) per month!
Pattinson previously earned £60,000 ($80,000) per month for his work on the popular British television show, but since the couple moved to America and Perry’s income increased, his earnings have increased with it. At the same time, his agent has gone into hiding, refusing to comment on the actor’s earnings. According to The Sun, her rep said: “Katy and Jeffrey are aware of the speculative nature of such things, but they aren’t going to be doing interviews about it.”
The tabloid added that agents and managers of top Hollywood stars were paid to keep quiet about their clients’ incomes, as it could “jeopardize their career” if the information got out. Apparently, this is a common practice among celebrities and their representatives to keep their earnings confidential. It’s not easy being a celebrity nowadays — between paparazzi and social media, you have to make sure that your personal life is kept private at all times.
His Net Worth Is In The Millions
Aside from his impressive salary, Pattinson’s net worth is also in the millions. The Sun claims that the actor’s fortune comes from his successful modeling career and substantial real estate holdings in London. Plus, he somehow managed to keep a significant portion of his fortune when he and his business partner divorced in 2015. They initially shared ownership of their Los Angeles mansion, which they sold for a profit in 2017, with the latter owning half of the building and the former keeping the other half. In 2019, it was revealed that he had bought the mansion, which had originally cost him £11.5 million ($15.75 million), for just £4.9 million ($6.5 million).
When Forbes magazine compiled their annual ranking of the world’s wealthiest celebrities in 2019, Pattinson’s net worth was estimated at £40 million ($55 million). That’s a pretty significant increase from the year before, when he was valued at £24 million ($33 million). Thanks to his high-profile relationships and lucrative TV work, the former “it” boy is now among the world’s wealthiest and most recognizable stars. It’s clear that people will pay to be near or with him, but just how much does he actually make per year?
The Most Successful Seasons Of His Career
Since making his television debut in 2006, Pattinson has appeared in some of the most successful seasons of popular TV shows. In 2007, his first season as Matt Damon in the Emmy Award-winning series, The Richest Man in the World, was named BBC’s best reality television show of all time. It drew an average of 16.7 million weekly viewers at the time. In 2010, he returned to the small screen with the Muppets in the Emmy Award-winning series, Modern Muppets, playing the parts of Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, and several others. That same year, he also starred in the mini-series Little Big League as the manager of a Los Angeles baseball team, alongside Julia Roberts and Matt Dillon. In the same year, he was also featured in the 3D concert film, Live From Abbey Road, playing the part of John Lennon.
Pattinson then went on to play Dr. Hunter McKay in the 2014 film, X-Men: Days of Future Past. The following year, he returned to the small screen with Kevin Spacey in the Netflix series, GLOW, based on the popular anime series, with the actor portraying Lenny Pepperwood, a struggling actor who joins the club in hopes of finding fame and fortune. In 2018, he made his big-budget superhero debut in Avengers: Infinity War as the superhero Starlord, playing the role of the protagonist, Peter Quill, who forms a dysfunctional family with his adopted siblings, including Spiderman’s son, Miles Morales (played by Ben 10 star, Carlos Valdes) and Black Widow (played by Scarlett Johansson).
What Is His Hollywood Ending?
With his ever-expanding filmography, and upcoming projects such as the drama, Van Cleef, and the comedy, The Game, starring Will Ferrell, it’s clear that Pattinson is working hard to establish himself as a serious actor. What is his Hollywood ending? Will he stick around Hollywood for good, or will he head back to his prestigious fashion roots? Only time will tell.
