Like I said, it’s not just how much money you make, it’s HOW you make you money. She’s been lucky to be able to play around all her life. Others have to WORK for their wealth.
Through her father, a billionaire heir to the Louis Dreyfus Group, one of the world’s largest commodities trading and merchandising firms, she had a cousin, Robert Louis-Dreyfus (19462009), former CEO of Adidas and owner of the Olympique de Marseille soccer team.
Net worth: $3 billion
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the actress who played Elaine Benes in Seinfeld, has a personal fortune of $3 billion.
a little known fact is that Julia is lucky to be the eldest daughter of billionaire Gerard Louis-Dreyfus, chairman of the Louis Dreyfus Energy Services
Julias father is still alive (born in 1932) as is her mother and step mother. She also has four siblings. But word on the street is that Julia is the apple of her fathers eye after all the success she had without relying on her family name or connections. This success outside the family business earned Louis-Drefuys millions of dollars of her very own both from Seinfeld as well as her recent hit The New Adventures of Old Christine. But the real money will come through inheritance.
