Pauley Perrette is estimated to have about a whooping $22 million in her name. The 53 year old multi-gifted woman is an established actress, musician, writer, Civil rights advocate and entrepreneur.
With about $200,000 being paid to her for every episode she shoots, it is no secret that a greater part of her wealth is from her career in acting. From NCIS alone, Forbes estimates that she made about $8.5 million dollars in total for the entire 15 seasons that she was there.
Before her huge break, however, Perrette did a number of minimum wage jobs, she once worked as a bartender and later as a cook before finally finding her place in the world of movies and TV shows.
Her acting career aside, Pauley also gains substantial income from her other occupations and given how many of them she has, it is no surprise that she is a millionaire.
