Many of our favorite stars live the comfortable life. After all, the slew of movies and shows they worked hard on gave them the privileges they have today. But like any other industry, some were rich to begin with because they were born rich.
Armie Hammer is a prime example. His first name is Armand because he was named after his grandfather, Armand Sr., the former chairman of Occidental Petroleum — which was once the largest independent oil company in the world, according to The New York Times Magazine. In Hammer’s early years, he even lived in the Cayman Islands, according to Fox News. Renowned journalist Anderson Cooper also comes from money as he is the son of Gloria Vanderbilt, making him a direct descendant of business tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt Yahoo! finance.
These days, celebrities and famous people who were born rich are branded with the title “nepotism baby” as people argue they rarely had to work to be successful. One of them happens to be actress Nicola Peltz, wife of another so-called nepotism babe, Brooklyn Beckham. But how rich is her family?
Nicola Peltz’ father is a billionaire
Nicola Peltz’ husband Brooklyn Beckham is wealthy thanks to superstar parents Victoria and David Beckham, but she’s far wealthier than him. That’s because Nicola’s parents are billionaire Nelson Peltz and model Claudia Heffner Peltz. According to Forbes, Nelson has a net worth of $1.7 billion. He founded the investment firm Trian Fund Management and has $8.5 billion in assets under management.
Nicola doesn’t talk much about her father, but after saying “yes” to Brooklyn, she thanked Nelson for helping her achieve her dream wedding. “Thank you for the best weekend of my life,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “You are the wind beneath my wings.” According to reports, Nicola and Brooklyn wed in their family’s $99.8 million mansion in Palm Beach, Fla. Vogue.
Nicola and Brooklyn reportedly signed a prenup before they made their way down the aisle. At the time, the Daily Mail UK reported the couple signed “the mother and father of all prenups,” which is unsurprising given they both come from wealthy families.
Nicola Peltz also has an impressive net worth
Even without her father’s help, Nicola Peltz is already rich herself; According to Celebrity Net Worth, she has a net worth of $50 million. The actress has been in the entertainment industry since childhood, and in her youth she appeared in various modeling projects. In 2006, she appeared in the movie Deck the Halls alongside Jeff Daniels and Alison Pill, per IMDb. Since then, she has starred in various shows and films such as Harold, The Last Airbender, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Eye of the Hurricane, and Bates Motel.
Also adding to her net worth is the gorgeous Beverly Hills home that Nicola bought with her husband, Brooklyn Beckham, before they tied the knot. It is reported to have five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two toilets per person. However, the couple listed it for $11 million in February 2022 after realizing they wanted to split their time between the east and west coasts. “They loved the house and are sad to include it in the list, but realized they wanted to be more flexible and closer to the coast,” a source told the outlet. “They want both a place in LA and one in Miami to be closer to their families, so a property that big just didn’t make sense when they started looking at their closer future plans.”
