Successful people tend to flock together. Think about it, don't you and your friends, have similar levels of success in your lives and careers? Ever wonder why so many celebrities marry other celebrities? It's because they exist in each other's orbit. Stories of the billionaire (or multi-millionaire) uber-successful person falling for someone broke or struggling are rare, despite what Hallmark and Lifetime romantic comedies and Christmas movies would lead us to believe. When two celebrities marry, they create a true power couple. I mean can you imagine what it's like to be Jay-Z and Beyoncé? Or Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen (despite their draconian, strict, healthy diet and lifestyle that seems zero fun)?
We put together a list of the richest celebrities and combined their net worths. Two notable couples that we left off are Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw and Salma Hayek and Francois Pinault because, although Kate and Salma are actresses their other half technically isn't a celebrity. Sure, an argument could be made for Spielberg's celebrity status but, in this case, we are leaving them off to do wealth and fame levels of these two couples being basically one-sided.
