American actor Johnny Depp is most famous for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. And with his success in bringing the character to life, Depp became one of the highest-paid actors in the world.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Depp is currently worth around $150 million due to his success in many great films. His movies have grossed more than $3.4 billion in the United States alone and $8.7 billion worldwide.

Depp was reportedly earning $48 million in 2016 from his acting career, putting him on the list of highest-paid actors in the world, as per Forbes. His overall career earnings came from roles in famous films, such as “Pirates of the Caribbean” and the “Fantastic Beasts” series.

For his role as Jack Sparrow in the “Pirates” series, he earned an estimated $300 million, as per Business Insider. For the fourth installment, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” Depp alone was paid $55 million, which was a major part of the film’s total production cost of $410 million.

Celebrity Net Worth also reported Depp earned $55 million for his role as the Mad Hatter in the live-action movie "Alice in Wonderland." The actor also earned $16 million for his work in the third installment in the “Fantastic Beasts” series despite his limited screen time and only shooting one scene for the movie, as per Vanity Fair. Amid issues with ex-wife Amber Heard, Depp withdrew from the cast of the franchise at the request of Warner Bros.

In July 2020, Depp was broke after he lost $650 million and accrued a $100 million debt. The financial loss was allegedly caused by the actor’s management company while the debt was from 17 years of unpaid taxes, Variety noted. Depp said financial mismanagement was the main cause of how he lost his money.

Depp used much of his career earnings purchasing real estate, owning many multimillion homes in several parts of the world, including five neighboring homes in Hollywood Hills with a combined worth of $19 million, as per Love Property. He also has a Kentucky Horse Farm, which is worth $950,000. According to Dolce Mag, the actor also owns a house in the South of France, which he put up for sale for $55 million.
