Celebrities Who Were Rich Before They Were Famous

Most of the people trying to break into show business are motivated by fame and fortune. And while most celebrities are focused on both of these things, we’ve made a list of those who really don’t need to worry about one of them.

While the majority of us had plastic spoons as toddlers, these celebrities used nothing less than a silver spoon. Some of them inherited a million dollar fortune while the others are so rich that even their grandkids won’t ever feel the real meaning of the word ‘struggle’.

Some celebs are descendants of the European royalty while some are grandsons of oil tycoons. Still it’s a proven fact that none can prosper in this world of competition without having a talent of some sort.

Here’s a list of the celebrities who do what they love, without the need to think about their paycheck:

1. Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Everybody knows Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a comedian and actress. The television shows like “Seinfeld” and “Veep” brought her fame, that’s for sure.

But what brought her all the money she has? No, it’s not a single TV show but rather her dad, Gerard Louis-Dreyfus, who was already a billionaire when she decided to pursue an acting career.

He was born in Paris and inherited the entire proprietorship of the Louis Dreyfus Group, which his great-grandfather founded in 1851. Therefore, Julia never had to think about money and she was free to follow her dreams.

The role she played in “Hannah and Her Sisters” was a major turning point in her career since she got a rare chance of acting under the direction of Woody Allen. She has been nominated for the Golden Globe award seven times, winning one of them.

But a question remains: can a billionaire father be the sole reason for Julia’s motivation to chase her dreams?
