10 Actors Who Were Born Filthy Rich


10 actors who were born filthy rich While waiting tables between auditions may
be a rite of passage for many would-be stars, plenty others started with a major leg up—at
least in terms of a financial safety net. Here are some actors born with stacks of cash… Edward Norton James Rouse, Edward Norton’s maternal grandfather,
enjoyed an incredibly successful career as a real-estate developer and urban planner,
designing everything from new towns to shopping malls. Among his biggest contributions: Faneuil
Hall Marketplace, which remains one of Boston’s most popular food and shopping destinations
to this day. Ansel Elgort Divergent star Ansel Elgort grew up in the
upper-class world of New York City. His parents were famous in the arts community, particularly
his fashion-photographer father, Arthur Elgort, who has spent decades shooting for Vogue,
GQ, and Chanel. His mother, Grethe Barrett Holby, has enjoyed a successful career as
a producer and director of opera. But he’s not the only art kid from New York to make
a splash in showbiz… Lena Dunham She may play a twentysomething struggling
to make ends meet on Girls. But in real life, things were much easier for Lena Dunham. That’s
all thanks to her famous artist parents, Carroll Dunham and Laurel Simmons, who’ve each had
their works in exhibitions the world over. With artistic influences like those, of course
Lena landed her own HBO series at just 26. Paul Giamatti Oscar-nominee Paul Giamatti had a pretty cushy
life growing up. His father, A. Bartlett Giamatti, taught at Yale before serving as university
president for almost 10 years. Later, he became president of the National League and then
Commissioner of Major League Baseball. No wonder his son stars on a show called Billions. Kristen Stewart Twilight star Kristen Stewart grew up in LA,
the daughter of TV producer John Stewart and Jules Mann-Stewart, a script supervisor and
film director. The pair raised Kristen and her two siblings in an Alice in Wonderland-themed
mansion, which they later sold for $1.75 million. Rashida Jones Quincy Jones, Rashida Jones’ father, produced
a run of ridiculously successful Michael Jackson albums. Her mother Peggy Lipton appeared in
four decades of movies and television, including The Mod Squad and Twin Peaks. Rooney and Kate Mara With a growing list of movie credits between
them, Rooney and Kate Mara are members of the young Hollywood elite. But before stepping
into the spotlight, they were raised among NFL royalty. The Mara sisters grew up in Westchester,
New York, and their paternal grandfather, Tim Mara, founded the New York Giants franchise
in 1925, and their uncle, John Mara, owns the team. And Maternal grandfather Art Rooney
founded the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1933. Jason Schwartzman Rushmore star Jason Schwartzman has Hollywood
in his blood. He’s the son of Talia Rose Coppola, who starred as Adrian in the Rocky movies
and Connie Corleone in The Godfather. Schwartzman is also the nephew of director Francis Ford
Coppola, and cousin of Nicolas Cage. Julia Louis-Dreyfus Seinfeld and Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus
is one of the best known comedy actresses around…and her family’s got more money than
some small countries. Her great-great-grandfather Léopold Louis-Dreyfus founded the major French
commodities trading conglomerate the Louis Dreyfus Group. Her father is Gérard Louis-Dreyfus,
chairman of Louis Dreyfus Energy Services, whose net worth in 2006 was estimated at…$3.4
