Paula Wagner net worth and salary: Paula Wagner is an American film producer and executive who has a net worth of $100 million dollars. Paula Wagner was born in Youngstown, Ohio, and went on to graduate from Carnegie Mellon University. She began her professional career as an actress in New York, appearing in both Broadway and Off-Broadway productions. She then shifted her focus to working as an agent. She became widely known during her 15 years with Creative Artists Agency, where she represented such actors as Sean Penn, Val Kilmer, Demi Moore, Liam Neeson, and Tom Cruise, as well as directors Oliver Stone and Kathryn Bigelow.
Cruise/Wagner Productions: In 1993, she formed a producing partnership with Tom Cruise called, Cruise/Wagner Productions. Their company went on to produce a steady string of hit films, including "The Mission Impossible" trilogy, "The Others", "The Last Samurai", and "War of the Worlds". To date Cruise/Wagner Productions films have grossed more than $3 billion at the worldwide box office. For many years their company had an exclusive deal with Paramount. That deal dissolved in 2006 after Tom's controversial statements about psychiatry and anti-depressants went viral and ruffled feathers around the industry. Funding ever since has been provided by hedge funds and Washington Redskins founder Dan Snyder. In 2006 Paula and Tom were recruited by United Artists to revive the struggling studio. Though Paula left UA in 2008, today she and Tom still own 30% of the studio. She now has her own production company, Chestnut Ridge Productions, which produces film, television, and theater projects.
