It’s a no-brainer why Jennifer Garner is America’s sweetheart — she is an excellent actress, a doting mom and loves to show her silly side on Instagram, but her net worth is the cherry on top of it all. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jennifer is worth a whopping $80 million. Meanwhile, Jen’s ex-husband Ben Affleck makes a little bit more as he is worth $150 million. Even though the Hollywood A-listers are no longer together, it’s safe to say they are not hurting in the money department.

Jennifer Garner Started Out in a TV Movie

The brunette beauty — who shares Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, with Ben — first appeared in the television movie, Zoya, in 1995. By 2001, Jen got her big break in Alias, which aired up until 2006. When the show first premiered, the mom of three was making $40,000 per episode, but by the finale, she was earning $150,000 per episode, The Daily Mail reported.

Jennifer has also owned the production company, Vandalia Films, since 2006, which has produced the 2012 film called Butter.

How Does She Spend Her Money?

Jen is a philanthropist and is an ambassador for Save the Children — an nonprofit organization that works with children to improve their lives through education, health care, among other things. From this, it’s clear she dedicates her money to good causes.

Jen and Ben’s former house in Pacific Palisades, California, was worth $31.95 million, but Jen purchased a small home in Brentwood for her and her children post-divorce, which cost about $7.9 million. However, in February, it was revealed Jen was also renting out a mansion in Pacific Palisades — which sold for $13.86 million — while she waits for her home to be finished with construction.
