George Clooney has likely been doing a lot of celebrating this week due to the Hollywood heartthrob’s 55th birthday falling on May 6. The star, who was voted People Magazine‘s Sexiest Man Alive on two separate occasions, and was a seeming forever-bachelor until the love of his life arrived and changed the party boy’s direction, has much to celebrate.

He is a massively successful actor, a respected human rights activist, and married to a gorgeous human rights lawyer whom the star has endlessly gushed over since tying the knot over a year ago. The star’s net-worth is certainly the icing on the cake. The amount is a detail that would make anyone’s birthday all the sweeter.
Money Magazine shares about Clooney’s worth on his 55th year on the planet, and notes the actor’s assets that can be accounted for in a number of continents.
“Megastar George Clooney’s net worth is $250 million. His wife Amal Clooney’s net worth is $10 million. The American actor and British lawyer divide their time among several homes in multiple countries. Clooney has owned his 7,534-square-foot Studio City, Calif., home since 1995, when he purchased it from Stevie Nicks for $2.2 million.”
The couple met and it was love at first sight, which led to a whirlwind romance and an engagement seven months later. As the publication reminds, the Clooneys were married in September of 2014. The hefty price tag attached to the big event, held in Italy, was $4.6 million.
In addition to the aforementioned homes that Amal and George split their time between, the actor also bought Villa Oleandra in 2002, which sits on the shores of Lake Como in Italy. This home has an approximate value of $10 million. George also owns a seven-bedroom, 10-bathroom home outside of Cabo San Lucas. This particular estate is said to be going up for sale with a $50 million price tag attached. As the publication adds, “[i]n September 2015, Clooney and his wife purchased a $14.6 million riverside mansion near Reading, England.”
It really is no wonder Clooney has such a high net worth when his career achievements both in front of and behind the camera are acknowledged. The publication reminds about Clooney’s accolades and accomplishments which have brought him such wealth and recognition.
“Best known for his work as an actor, George Clooney is also an accomplished director, producer and writer. The talented star has been recognized for his work in front of and behind the camera. In 2013, he took home the Oscar for Best Motion Picture of the Year for “Argo.” 2006 saw Clooney win an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in ‘Syriana.’ Additionally, the Hollywood Foreign Press honored Clooney with the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2015 Golden Globes. The award is designed to pay homage to those who have made exceptional contributions to the entertainment industry.”
If all that is not enough, when the total earnings of all movies Clooney has been a part of over the years are calculated, the star can be linked to a whopping $4.55 billion at the box office. Money Magazine shares the details in regard to earnings of George Clooney’s top films.
“His highest-grossing movies worldwide include ‘Gravity’ at $723.2 million, ‘Ocean’s Eleven” at $450.7 million, ‘Ocean’s Twelve’ at $362.7 million, ‘The Perfect Storm’ at $328.7 million and ‘Ocean’s Thirteen’ at $311.3 million.”

The notable actor has demonstrated his talent in all regards in the world of film, yet uses his fame to advocate and draw attention to issues such as the refugee crisis. He and his wife Amal met with Angela Merkel in Germany in regard to this. As the Guardian notes, the couple arrived to speak with Merkel in order to show support for her controversial open-door policy to refugees.
