Jason Statham and his long-term partner Rosie Huntington-Whiteley first made headlines when they began their relationship due to the huge age gap between the two. However, in recent times, the couple have gained recognition as a result of their career achievements. Jason, who has established himself as an action film star, first started out in sports before turning to a model and then an actor. Hence, his career of over two decades in the entertainment industry has enabled him to amass impressive fortunes.
In like manner, Rosie’s resounding success in modeling has made her no stranger to the Forbes list of the highest-paid models in the world. She appeared on the list in 2016, 2017, and 2018. She has also earned massively from her other endeavors in the entertainment industry. Although Jason and Rosie are ranked among the richest people in their respective career fields, one is financially better off than the other. Here are the details of their estimated fortunes and age gap.
Jason Statham is Richer Than Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Although Jason Statham is widely known as a typecast actor who often portrays tough characters in action-thriller movies, his career success knows no bounds. As a result, the Hollywood star has an estimated net worth of $90 million which is three-time bigger than that of Rosie, estimated at $30 million. Thus, Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s combined net worth is pegged at $120 million.
With such wealth in their hands, the celebrity couple have been able to rack up their real estate portfolio, owning many assets. In 2016, they purchased a $2.7 million home around the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California, and a mansion in Beverly Hills for almost $13 million.
