Film Roles and Selena Gomez Net Worth
The next item in our Selena Gomez net worth figures is her work as an actress in 13 major film roles, including Horton Hears a Who, Ramona and Beezus and the controversial Spring Breakers in 2012.
The young actress has appeared in hugely successful movies like 2008’s Horton Hears a Who, which netted nearly $300 million at the worldwide box office and no doubt added a significant amount to Selena Gomez’s net worth. She has also acted in failures like 2013’s Getaway, which earned only $10.5 million. All together, we estimate film roles added about $12.3 million to Selena Gomez’s net worth.
The amounts paid to an actress or actor for film work aren’t always made available to the public. Some top stars are paid as much as 7% of a film’s revenue, such as Robert Downey Jr. for his work on Iron Man 3. Others are paid as little as $60,000, such as Jonah Hill for his appearance in The Wolf of Wall Street. We calculated our Selena Gomez net worth film payouts by estimating about 1% of sales in some cases or a set rate based on the film’s production budget in others. The table below shows a breakdown for the portion of Selena Gomez’s net worth from acting roles in major films.

Selena Gomez Net Worth Expenses
Between TV shows, music sales, films, endorsements, businesses and concert tours, we estimate Selena Gomez’s income up to 2009 at about $47 million. However, expenses also figure into Selena Gomez’s net worth.
While it’s difficult to estimate a Hollywood star’s expenses, we do know Gomez spent about $2.17 million on a home in Tarzana, California in 2011. However, Ms. Gomez sold the house again in 2014 for $3.45 million to model and rapper Iggy Azalea. Rumored to have added extravagant updates of a possible half million, Gomez still wound up $780,000 ahead on the deal. The profit means the house actually added to Selena Gomez’s net worth.
Assuming other expenses of $150,000 per year, the star spent $3 million total from 2009 to 2015. Subtracting those expenses from her earnings gives our final Selena Gomez net worth figure of $45 million.

Selena Gomez Net Worth in the Future
Selena Gomez’s career has followed a similar path to Miley Cyrus’. Starting out as a child star for children’s programming, the actress quickly built an impressive music career. Whether Selena Gomez’s net worth will transition to young adulthood as successfully as Cyrus’ remains to be seen. While Cyrus boosted her net worth exponentially by sexualizing her persona, Gomez at least initially refrained from taking the same step. With a net worth 3.3 times less than Cyrus however, Gomez has apparently made the decision to take the same road. Her hit single Good for You in 2015 centers around her sexuality, including the line, “Leave this dress a mess on the floor / and still look good for you.”
The video for the song is, if anything, even more sexualized. Time will tell whether the new direction will continue and whether it will ultimately boost Selena Gomez’s net worth.
As of 12/29/15, the big news is that Gomez’s “Hands to Myself” video has been released. Check out Gomez’s tweet on the release below:
