Net Worth: $15 Million

Considered one of the most successful child actors since Shirley Temple, he became a household name after the film Home Alone and Richie Rich came out. He was the first child actor to receive one million dollars for a single movie, My Girl. The producers of Home Alone paid him $100,000 in the first movie, but when the sequel came around, he was paid $4.5 million.

By 1994, he was earning $16 million a year just for starring in two films: Richie Rich and Getting Even with Dad. Then he went on a hiatus and went off the radar for several years before returning to the movie industry in 2000. After mixed reviews from Party Monster, it took him several years and many more films for him to get paid the amount he got as a child star.

He owns a $2 million apartment-turned-art studio.
