Whether it’s a clothing line or a brand of alcohol, there are a slew of celebrities who have become incredibly rich off of their own personal businesses or products. And for Jessica Alba, it’s her corporation, The Honest Company.
On Wednesday, Alba launched a new line under the billion dollar company called Honest Beauty and our guess … it will be very successful. Honest Beauty is a natural skincare and makeup line that was also created with women of color in mind. “It really is like seriously a labor of love and I really wanted to launch a company that celebrates diverse beauty,” Alba said.
She added, “As a woman of color I just felt like we need to be represented in all the different shades that we are and we need to be celebrated and so we have a beautiful range of products that look great on everybody’s skin tone.”
So in light of Alba’s launch, here are five other Hollywood power players who have built a fortune by simply being entrepreneurs.
5. Magic Johnson – $5 million: Retired American professional basketball player Magic Johnson garnered a whopping $100 million after selling 105 Starbucks franchises and his 4.5 % stake in the Los Angeles Lakers. Johnson, who is now the part owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, has also tapped into insurance, food services and healthcare.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
