Number Four: George Lazenby
His name might not sound familiar to younger generations, but Lazenby became an international superstar as James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. He was the youngest actor to ever portray the famous agent but refused to ever appear in any of the sequels.

Net worth: $100 million.
Number Two: Nicole Kidman
International A-list actress Nicole was born in Honolulu to Australian parents. Her career took off with Batman Forever and Moulin Rouge! where she proved she is as good of a performer as she is an actress.

Net worth: $130 million.
