Michelle Yeoh is of the most seasoned and well respected actors in the game. Earlier this year she won Best Actress at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Golden Globes for her role as Evelyn Wang in Everything Everywhere All At Once. (Remember her iconic speech?) And this month, she's an Oscar favorite for Best Actress—a much-deserved and hard-won nomination.
The Malaysian-born actress got her start in the biz back in the 1980s, and has been booked and busy nearly every year since, per her IMDb page. As the lead in one of the biggest films of the last year and with a very lengthy resumé to boot, Michelle has probably earned quite a bit of cash in her career.
So, how much exactly is the EEAAO star worth? Women's Health has all the details from her best paying roles to her real estate portfolio.
Everything Everywhere All At Once was A24's highest grossing film of all time.
If you've seen the film, this doesn't really come as a surprise—but Michelle Yeoh's lead flick was A24's (the indie production company behind films like Lady Bird and Midsommar) highest grossing film of all time, earning over $103 million in the box office worldwide, per Deadline. It was also ranked in the top 50 of best-selling films for 2022, per IMDb.
It's not clear how much Michelle made off the flick personally, but it's likely a hefty amount considering she played the lead.
She has over 40 other film credits.
Yup, Michelle has been an extremely powerful force in the industry for many years.
The actress broke out massively in the United States for her role in Tomorrow Never Dies, a James Bond film released in 1997 (which grossed $330 million). Since, Michelle has appeared in films across all genres—including high performers in the box office such as Crazy Rich Asians, Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume II, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Michelle has probably made a decent cut from these acting credits (plus many more). In fact, most of her bigger films have grossed over $200 million (Guardians of the Galaxy earned over $800 (!!) million).
Michelle has also done some acting for television.
In addition to her roles on the big screen, Michelle has taken on some roles on television, too. In fact, she had recurring roles in Star Trek: Discovery and The Witcher: Blood Origin.
It's unclear how much the actress made for her Star Trek role, however she reportedly made around $70,000 per episode of The Witcher, per Showbiz Galore.
She owns a mansion in Switzerland.
Like other movie stars, Michelle has a house in the hills—but hers is in Geneva, Switzerland rather than Hollywood. She shares the picturesque palace with her partner, Jean Todt (who BTW, is also very wealthy). In 2019, the couple's house was profiled by The Financial Times, however an exact estimate of its worth was not included.
It's likely somewhere in the multi-million dollar range, though. Luxury homes in Switzerland range from anywhere between $2 million, to $30 million, to (terrifyingly) "price upon request" on Christie's International Real Estate.
She also apparently owns two more homes in Paris, France and Ipoh, Malaysia, according to Town & Country.
Her net worth is estimated at $40 million.
Although it's not confirmed, Michelle Yeoh's net worth is reportedly $40 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
With the success of EEAAO and other massive projects in the works such as the upcoming Avatar sequels and Wicked, her net worth is really only going up.
