Ellen’s Oscar Selfie Breaks The $1 Billion Mark

DeGeneres broke Twitter with her selfie, and the pic breaks the bank.

It’s the selfie that set a new standard: Thanks to the sheer wattage of its star power, Ellen DeGeneres’ in-show Oscar snap — which featured front-row fixtures like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Channing Tatum and roughly half of Jared Leto’s face — quickly became the most re-tweeted pic of all time on Sunday night, shattering a record previously held by Barack Obama (sorry Chief).

Of course, after every single person in our timeline shared the self-proclaimed “best photo ever,” we started to wonder: What’s the total net worth of everyone in the frame? Turns out, it’s a lot.

With a little help from sites like Forbes and, uh, CelebrityNetWorth, we added up the bank accounts of the 12 stars in the pic — yes, we’re counting Lupita Nyong’o’s brother Peter, mostly because he’s awesome — and ended up with a rather staggering total: more than $1 billion.

And, sure, Ellen’s selfie has a long way to go before it can match the net worth of a single Bill Gates pic, a billion dollars is certainly nothing to blink at. Here’s a breakdown of what each star contributed to that total.

Brangelina

Total combined net worth: $385 million (Brad: $240 million, Angelina: $145 million) Forbes estimates the couple brought in $50 million between June 2012 and June 2013 alone.

Ellen DeGeneres

Total net worth: $250 million. Forbes ranked her at #10 on its most-recent Celebrity 100, with earnings of $56 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

Julia Roberts

Total net worth: $150 million. Forbes recently listed her as the 10th highest-paid actress in Hollywood, bringing in $11 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

Meryl Streep

Total net worth: $65 million. Forbes has her at #73 on the Celebrity 100, with earnings of $7 million … of course, she’s also got 18 Oscar nominations to her name, and who can put a price tag on that?

Channing Tatum

According to Forbes, he came from out of nowhere to land at #2 on the Highest Paid Actors list, bringing in $60 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

Kevin Spacey

Total net worth: $50 million. Guess that Netflix money is legit.

Jared Leto

Total net worth: $40 million. Turns out the actor/musician game is a lucrative one … though, admittedly, this figure is slightly less than the (totally fake) number that’s floating around out there, we’re willing to bet Jared’s not complaining.

Bradley Cooper

Total net worth: $30 million. Forbes had him at #1 on their Celebrity 100: Ones To Watch list, estimating he made a cool $28 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

Jennifer Lawrence

Based on Forbes’ estimates, she’s the second-highest paid actress in Hollywood (trailing only Angelina), making $26 million between June 2012 and June 2013. That figure also helped her land at #49 on the Celebrity 100 … ahead of New Orleans’ Saints QB Drew Brees.

Lupita Nyong’o (and her awesome brother)

Total net worth: $500,000. Though we’re willing to bet that figure changes pretty quickly.
