It’s no secret that the Disney stars rake in so much money, even the exes! If you look at the biggest stars in Hollywood today, many of them have some kind of connection to the Disney company. It appears that Disney has a knack for casting kids that they know will make it big.
So here’s top 10 of the richest Ex-Disney stars:
10. Joe Jonas – $18 Million
If you knew the Jonas Brothers growing up you would be familiar with the fact that they were one of Disney’s biggest stars. After starring in the Disney Channel movie Camp Rock, the Jonas Brothers got so big that the media often compared their fanbase to “Beatlemania.” Joe had a new band for a short while called DNCE, but has recently reunited with his brothers to start The Jonas Brothers back up.
9. Zac Efron – $24 Million
Who remembers Troy Bolton? Cause I do! It wasn’t until he landed the lead role in the Disney Channel movie High School Musical that he became America’s heartthrob. I mean he still kinda is!
8. Hilary Duff – $25 Million
The Disney Channel show Lizzie McGuire was an all time fave for everyone growing up. The iconic show was so successful that there was even a feature film, The Lizzie McGuire Movie.
7. Nick Jonas – $25 Million
We have yet another Jonas Brothers member! After the band found success starring in the Disney Channel movie Camp Rock, the brothers were eventually given their own show called Jonas. Now Nick has a music career and a string of movies under his name!
6. Demi Lovato – $33 Million
Demi like the rest started off young as a child actor on Barney & Friends before Disney Channel discovered her and cast her in the short series As The Bell Rings. Her beautiful vocals helped her land the lead in the TV movie Camp Rock, which kick started her bountiful career.
5. Selena Gomez – $60 Million
Like her former BFF Selena Gomez started as a child actor on Barney & Friends with Demi! Disney then cast her as the star of the sitcom Wizards of Waverly Place, which ran from 2007 to 2012.
