4. Elizabeth Taylor’s Smart Investments

Elizabeth Taylor
Helga Esteb -

The late actress passed away 3 years ago to heart failure, but her estate continues to earn revenue thanks to smart stock and real estate investments. She also wisely negotiated a 10% stake in all her later films. Taylor still makes money from her fragrance, White Diamonds, which brought in a cool $35 million in 2012. Recently 1,800 pieces from Elizabeth’s jewellery and art collection were successfully auctioned off at Christie’s, bringing in $184 million. That makes her one of the highest earning celebrities, dead or alive.
