It’s safe to assume that most celebs’ bank accounts have a lot of zeroes at the end. Given the salaries they earn for films, endorsements and appearances, it’s no surprise that many are in the millionaire’s club. While some stars went from rags to riches through their career, a few were actually born into wealthy families. They never had to go through that starving artist phase. Here are 10 celebrities born rich, with silver or even platinum spoons in their mouths.

1. Adam Levine

Levine wears so many different hats today it’s no surprise that his net worth tops $35 million. However, before he built up his singing (Maroon 5), hosting (The Voice)  and entrepreneurial reputations, he was already surrounded by the rich and powerful. His father, Fred Levine, owns the successful M. Fredric retail chain. He sent his son to the elite Brentwood School and the French Woods Festival of Performing Arts. Having a wealthy, well connected dad more than readied Adam for the star he is now.

2. Chevy Chase

Chase belongs to an old and distinguished family. We say old because his lineage can be traced back four centuries. We say distinguished because he is the son of a reputed magazine editor. On his mother’s side, he is a successor (though not a blood descendant) of C. V. Crane, the heir to the Crane Plumbing Company. Add “old” and “distinguished” and you get “wealthy”, of course. Let’s just say Chevy didn’t have to wait tables as he tried to make it in the biz.
