Ben Affleck’s Net Worth Is Massive, So Yeah...He Can Afford That $64 Million Home With J.Lo

Much like the literal phoenix tattooed on his back, Ben Affleck rose from the ashes last year and legit went from being engaged to Jennifer Lopez for the second time to Literally! Marrying! Her! And their vibe, if you haven’t already noticed, is best described as thirst with a side of dripping wealth.

In their last two years together, these two have done everything from celebrate J.Lo’s 52nd birthday on a luxurious European vacation (where they basically spent their time chilling on a massive private yacht and re-creating THAT scene from the “Jenny From the Block” video) to browse homes together (btw, they wound up landing on a truly jaw-dropping $64 million option). Casual! With a net worth of $400 million, Jennifer Lopez can afford this level of spending, but the same can be said for Ben. Let’s take a refreshing dip into the actor’s net worth real quick.

Ben Affleck Makes Up to $15 Million Per! Movie!!

Our dude Ben has starred in a ton of movies over the years, and he’s earned a sh*t-ton of money along the way. According to Celebrity Net Worth, his biggest paycheck came in 2003 for—LOL—the literal movie Paycheck, for which he made $15 million. Le irony!

Some other notable non-Paycheck paycheck moments? Oh, not much! Just a cool $6 million for Reindeer Games, $10 million for Changing Lanes and The Sum of All Fears, and—because we know you’re wondering—$12.5 million for the criminal masterpiece known as Gigli.

Meanwhile, Good Will Hunting—aka the movie that launched Ben’s career—was among his smallest paychecks. But it was still pretty big for other reasons, financials aside. Here’s what he told Boston Magazine back in 2013:

“I remember it was printed in ‘Daily Variety’ that we were going to get $600,000 on it. We had no credit, so we went to rent this house that was $3,000 a month, and we used a copy of the ‘Daily Variety’ to get the place. I was like, ‘I don’t have credit, but this is who we are.’ And the landlord was like, ‘All right, sure.’ We thought $600,000 would take care of us for 20 years, so we rented nicer apartments and each bought Jeep Cherokees. And we were completely broke in a year.”

’Kay, But What About Batman?

Ben’s exact Batman salary hasn’t been revealed, ugh, but according to Forbes, he got “a huge paycheck” for Dawn of Justice, which lead to him making $35 million in 2014.

Ben Is Earning a *Literal* Fortune from Dunkin’

All those pap shots of Ben clutching his Dunkin’ coffee have paid off, because he’s since signed a massive deal with the brand to film some commercials.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the deal is worth “several million dollars” and also includes a donation to Ben’s nonprofit, the Eastern Congo Initiative. Since then, he's starred in multiple Dunkin' Super Bowl ads and even teamed up with J. Lo, Ice Spice, and Charli D'Amelio to promote the brand.

Ben Can Def Afford a $64 Million Home

Word on the street is the newlyweds purchased a massive estate back in March 2023 in the Pacific Palisades previously owned by investor and gaming financier Gregory Milken. To be honest, it’s not even that far out of Ben’s current real estate price range. The actor and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner dropped $17.55 million on a house in 2009 and flipped it for $32 million in 2019 (Adam Levine was the buyer) and then Ben bought himself a $19 million home in the same neighborhood back in 2018. So, yeah, he can 100 percent afford the sprawling mansion, no bigs. It’s an investment, after all! *cries in broke*

He Earned $55 Million in 2020

Like...during the pandemic. This salary put Ben on Forbes Celebrity 100 Earnings list at #37, with the outlet reporting, “He’s collected eight-figure salaries for upcoming films Medieval thriller The Last Duel and action film Hypnotic.”

So, What Is Ben Affleck’s Total Net Worth in 2024?

That’d be $150 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. And if this sounds like a “small” sum considering how much Ben pulls in per movie, don’t forget that he has a ton of expenses, overhead, and taxes—this $150 million is what’s left in the bank after Ben spends his way through all of his paychecks. In other words, this is just a tiny fraction of what he’s has earned over the years. Mind! Officially! Blown!
