The wealth of a celebrity is often characterized as a treasure trove. Here are 10 celebrities with the highest net worths, according to CelebrityNetWorth.com.


Joe Montana is a retired professional American football player and current venture capital investor who has a net worth of $150 million dollars. He is most famous for being the longtime quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, but he played for the Kansas City Chiefs as well. He has earned significantly more money in retirement off venture investments and endorsement deals than he ever did during his playing days from salary and endorsements.

Montana attended Waverly Elementary, Finleyville Junior High, and Ringgold High School; he played football, baseball, and basketball as a high school student and was offered a basketball scholarship (which he turned down) by North Carolina State. Joe was a backup during his first 2 years on the football team but became the starting quarterback during his junior year, and "Parade" magazine named him an All-American quarterback during his senior year (1974). Montana also sang in the school's choir and was senior class vice president, and he accepted a scholarship to Notre Dame. Ringgold High School's football stadium has been officially known as Joe Montana Stadium since 2006. (Source: www.celebritynetworth.com)


Notre Dame played in the Cotton Bowl on January 1, 1979, and despite fighting hypothermia in the frigid temperatures, Montana helped the team score 3 touchdowns in the final minutes of the game. Notre Dame won by 1 point, and ESPN.com named the 1979 Cotton Bowl #3 on their 2002 list of the greatest bowl games. Montana graduated in 1979, earning a degree in business administration and marketing. Later that year, the San Francisco 49ers selected Joe during the third round of the NFL Draft, making him the 82nd pick.

Joe won the Super Bowl MVP Award, an honor he would receive again in 1985 and 1990. In 1985, San Francisco beat the Miami Dolphins at Super Bowl XIX with a score of 38-16. Montana sat out part of the 1986 season due to a back injury, but his impressive performance after his recovery earned him the 1986 NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award.
