John Travolta has worked a tireless and determined career since the 80s and has done wonders to be a household name across 4 decades.

They married and have 3 children together, who are no doubt in line for a healthy estate that has their names written all over it.

Many don't know that Anderson Cooper is a product of extreme opulence and generational wealth. The affluence of the family dates back to the Gilded age (19th century).

The Smith-Pinkett Family - $300 million
Will Smith was the first bona fide black superstar to storm Hollywood and ruled the summers of the 90s. Jada was an actress on the rise, and films such as Set It Off proved her brilliance and talent. Together, the superstar soulmates started and nurtured a beautiful family, where their children, Jaden and Willow, blossomed into progressive and outspoken stars in their own right. Collectively, they've all contributed to the $300 million family fortune that hasn't even peaked yet.
The Douglas & Zeta-Jones Home - $405 million
Michael Douglas enjoyed a volume of iconic roles and has played a part behind the scenes as a successful producer too. This has ballooned his net worth, while his British wife, Catherine, has enjoyed a stellar and lucrative career that puts the family in high standings in Hollywood. They have two children together, Dylan Michael Douglas and Carys Zeta Douglas, who no doubt see their fair share of fame and fortune. They've since brought a combined worth that's skyrocketed to the $405 million region, and they're not coming down any time soon.

Barbara and Brolin married in 1998, and have been side-by-side through everything even before their nuptials.

Together, they sit on a hefty $420 million fortune that is a result of hard work, Barbara's brilliance, and a boundless level of love. They have 1 child who is in only Barbara's biological son, Jason Gould, who is successful on his own but has a place in that wealth too.
The Hanks & Wilson Family - $420 million
No actor on the planet right now has a career even remotely as flattering as that of the great Tom Hanks. His star wife, Rita, doesn't carry the weight of the net worth quite like Tom, but for a couple that's been together for 26 years, they've clearly built a home that stands on love first and foremost. This was Hank's second marriage, which brought two children, Colin and Elizabeth. While he and Rita have two of their own, Chet and Truman. With breath-taking fortune, the family is sitting as pretty as they ever could've hoped.
The Osbournes - $470 million
The Osbournes (Ozzy, Sharon, Kelly, Jack) may have been the first family that made it possible to bring cameras into their home and then just let the sparks fly with family drama as entertainment. The Osbornes collectively have a wild worth of $470 million, which is due to their ability to turn their signature craziness into unspeakable wealth that reminds us just how massive this messy family is.
The Bundchen & Brady Bunch - $480 million

The Beckhams - $730 million

For their 4 children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Harper, and Cruz, they created an incredible wealth that is seriously mind-blowing.
The Carter Clan - $1.1 billion
There is simply is no family that draws as much craze and obsession like the Carters. Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z have built an empire that has transcended music and has traversed into so many distinct avenues (music, sports, beverages, fashion, streaming) that it's impossible to track where their biggest influence is. They've consistently stressed the importance of creating generational wealth for the children, Blu Ivy, Sir, and Rumi, and with a family worth of $1.1 billion to their prestigious and private names, they're not missing a single beat on the subject.
The Jacksons - $1.3 billion

This just reminds us just how integral they all were to the popularization of the pop genre.

The Spielberg Family - $3.62 billion
Billionaire Spielberg has owned the box office for several years. The cinema-defining auteur has obviously taken some serious backend from films such as Jaws, Jurassic Park, and E.T that have contributed to the family's $3.62 billion worth. His wife Kate Capshaw obviously doesn't bring in that kind of cash, but with $20 million to her name, she's more than integral to the standing of the family. They share 6 children, 2 adopted and 2 from respective prior marriages. There's more than enough wealth to go around here despite the massive family.
The Hayek & Pinault Pack - $35.2 billion
This may just shock just about anyone that the richest family in Hollywood is that run by the phenomenal and ageless Salma Hayek. The bulk of their wealth is brought to the table by her French fashion-running husband, Francois Henri Pinault, the CEO of Kering. It is the holding company of brands such as Alexader McQueen, Puma, and Gucci amongst others. He rakes in from the runway with $35 billion. They have a teenage daughter, Valentina Paloma, who must be spoilt silly with that kind of love and money floating around.
