For most of us, retirement isn’t something we think about until we’re in our 60's. But celeb kids have other rules when it comes to money and retirement.
Usually, for us normal people, it takes a lifetime to earn enough money to be able to retire. Yes, some fields may pay more than others like if you are a doctor you can easily retire in your fifties but if you are a construction worker you might need to work through your sixties as well. But for celebrity kids it’s a completely different story.
Child actors can have a very successful show that gives them a pretty good paycheck and give them residuals for the next decades as well. When they have the opportunity of being on a hit show when they are a kid, then the sky is the limit when it comes to money. So, when a celebrity kid “stays the path” and lives a sensible life their money made from acting in big hits can last a lifetime.
These are 10 celebrity kids who are so successful they could retire by the time they are 18, or even right now!
#1 Aubrey Anderson-Emmons
She might have been the last kid to join the successful cast of Modern Family, however, she is also enjoying the success as the rest of her young castmates. Aubrey plays the role of the smart-mouthed Asian-American daughter of Mitchell and Cameron, named Lily. Her quick-wit and humor bring a few good laughs for the show, getting her towards gathering $5 million. She still has several years before she turns 18, but her path is clearly set out as a highly successful one with crazy earnings.
#2 Elle Fanning
Just like her sister Dakota, Elle Fanning is another family member primed to be famous. Following her sister’s footsteps, she has already been one of the young shining stars of Hollywood for years now. With important roles in Super 8, The Nines, Daddy Day Care, Phoebe in Wonderland, We Bought a Zoo and Maleficient her famous star is definitely on the rise. With roles in House and Law & Order, Elle has impressive appearances in both the small and the big screen. Being so famous and having an estimated worth of at least $8 million, she can easily retire right now and still live a luxurious life.
#3 Rico Rodriguez
Another Modern Family star; unlike Aubrey, Rico started with the show from the very beginning playing the role of Manny Delgado, the smart-talking son of actress Sofia Vergara. Even though it will be difficult to distinguish himself from his role on Modern Family, with $100,000 an episode, Rico is going to be set for life! With an estimate net worth of $8 million and growing, Modern Family’s success gives him the option of being able to retire now with enough money to live a very comfortable life.
#4 Mia Talerico
Even though she is just 7 years old, Mia Talerico is a celebrity kid who has been in front of a camera most of her life. She starred for five years in Disney Channel’s Good Luck Charlie and appeared on several commercials before she could even speak. She made at least $3 million from Good Luck Charlie and she is only 7 years old! We should all definitely keep an eye for this pint-size cutie; we should expect more great things from her in the future.
#5 Bella Thorne
Bella Thorne may have turned 18 this year, but her successful career begun in 2003 with the success on the Disney series Shake it Up only to move on and star in Adam Sandler’s film Blended which opened up more opportunities to star in several big movies after that. This rich kid is not just a famous child actor; she can also sing as well as model. With several upcoming film projects her current earnings of $3 million will only double and grow with every passing day.
#6 Kiernan Shipka
Shipka, who grew up before the eyes of many television fans on the hit show Mad Men as the daughter of Betty and Don Draper has just turned 17. Her career started off as a model baby and hasn’t stopped since. Her TV success was soon turned into feature film roles such as starring in the Flowers in the Attic. Kiernan was listed in 2014 as one of the 25 Most Influential Teens by Time Magazine and with an estimated worth of $3 million this figure will only grow bigger with her fantastic acting jobs.
#7 Chloe Moretz
This celebrity kid is both famous for her acting and modeling abilities. She has already been featured on the covers of magazines such as Marie Claire, Vogue and Elle. Appearing in the film The Amityville Horror and receiving critical acclaim for her role in 2005 helped her land important roles in numerous successful films such as Carrie, Hugo, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Equalizer, (500) Days of Summer and Kick-Ass 1 and 2. With over $8 million in her bank and several roles on the horizon, Chloe Moretz is already set for life.
#8 Ariel Winter
Despite having some issues with her family that led her to get legally emancipated, Ariel Winter is a dynamic child actor and rich kid. The 17-year old who plays the role of Alex Dunphy on the hit show Modern Family will forever be making money on the show’s success, too. Making over $100,000 an episode makes her have at least $8 million in net worth and with an aspiring film career brewing for Winter, she is going to grow in both fame and wealth in no time.
#9 Nolan Gould
Okay, this is the last of our Modern Family clan. Nolan Gould, who plays Luke Dunphy killed it with his great comic relief being a major part of the show’s early success. And now, even though his is lacking the cuteness he possessed as a child (his later episodes haven’t been received so well) he still rakes in over $100,000 an episode and is also worth around $8 million, just like his castmates. At just 17, Gould can retire tomorrow and still live a comfortable and luxurious life.
#10 Jaden Smith
Certainly, if you want to be a rich celebrity kid it helps to have two successful parents like Jada Pinket Smith and Will Smith. At just 17, Jaden Smith has already been a successful celeb kid for a decade now; his career begun when he appeared opposite his father in the Oscar-nominated movie The Pursuit of Happyness at the tender age of 8. After appearing in major films such as The Karate Kid, The Day the Earth Stood Still and After Earth and working on an upcoming rap career, Jaden already has more than $10 million to spare and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.
These celebrity kids have enough money to retire as well as support their families, too. Most kids on our list are child actors, however, these rich kids are famous for trying different endeavors such as singing or modeling, too. And even though they have crazy amounts of money to spend, no-one can deny the fact that they have worked really hard for it!
