Chloe Grace Moretz – Net worth: $12 million
One of the most astounding actresses of the 21st century is, without a doubt, Chloe Grace Moretz. She is known for several films, including Kick-Ass, Carrie, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror. Moretz got her start in Hollywood in a two-episode stretch of CBS’ The Guardian. From there, she gained more and more recognition through bigger and bigger roles. Eventually, she wound up trying out for the character Hit-Girl in the hit movie Kick-Ass. This is considered her breakout role, and is largely responsible for subsequent success. This actress just barely qualifies for our 21 Richest Celebrities Under 21 list, as her birthday was in February of 1997. Soon, she will be able to legally drink alcohol – and if you’re anything like us, that’s a pretty big shock. What isn’t too shocking is her massive net worth, as Moretz is a highly-talented actress.
Shawn Mendes – Net worth: $12 million
In Shawn Mendes, we find the perfect example of how modern media can help future stars gain recognition. He originally was discovered through the video-sharing application Vine, where he posted guitar and vocal covers of popular songs. Less than a year after his first Vine post, manager Andrew Gertler discovered him and instantly signed him with Island Records in 2014. His very first official single, “Life of the Party”, made it to spot number 24 on the US Billboard Hot 100. He was the youngest person to ever have their debut make it to the top 25, which was likely due to his preexisting fanbase on Vine. Since he began, Mendes has recorded some of the top songs of this generation. Most recently, he released the popular “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”. This song, released on April 20th of last year, was his third single to score a place in the top ten – even reaching number one on the Mainstream Top 40. His wild success has brought him fame and fortune, and it’s all thanks to a few videos on Vine.
