In a previous interview, Zendaya (née Zendaya Coleman) confessed that she sought therapy because she was overly concerned about her finances.
“The hope is to have a career where you can be in a position, financially, to just do things you want to do because you enjoy the work and not have to worry about the other things,” she said in a British Vogue (via Yahoo!) cover story. “But I’m always like, ‘I will always need to work.’ Because if I don’t work, then everything can be gone tomorrow.”
According to CNBC, Zendaya is not alone in these types of concerns. In fact, the outlet says a whole new subsection of therapy emerged in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic: financial therapy.
“Clients get the best of both worlds when they see a financial therapist: They can begin to process their underlying feelings about money while working out plans for retirement, savings, investments, and other goals,” they said.
Not many of us will make the money that Zendaya has made through the years. And while it’s great that she sought therapy to better herself and the world around her, it’s even better that she doesn’t have to ever really worry about her finances again. Let’s take a look at her career by the numbers.
Editorial note: The net worth listed in this piece is a speculative estimate drawn from a variety of online sources. This piece was also updated on January 31, 2022, to reflect a new report revealing how much Zendaya gets paid per Instagram post, according to a new study.
Her Salary Per Film
According to IMDbPro (subscription), Zendaya’s salary per film is quite impressive. The outlet reports that the actress first got a big paycheck with the Disney film, “Frenemies,” where she received $284,000 for her role. But according to Seventeen, she really started banking when she started receiving a cut of the box office for her roles in films. A perfect example of this is her role in “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Zendaya received a cut of the $880 million gross, though the percentage of the cut remains unclear.
Box Office Receipts
According to IMDBPro, Zendaya’s aggregate earnings total nearly $3 billion. As a lead ensemble actress, her box office receipts total more than $1.8 billion in the domestic box office and nearly $1 billion in the international box office.
How Much Does Zendaya Get Paid Per Instagram Post?
A new study released by CasinoBee revealed that Zendaya is considered the most influential member of the hit HBO show, “Euphoria,” thanks to how much she makes per social media post. The outlet reported that the “Spider-Man: No Way Home” star charges more than $300,000 per post — which reaches, as of this writing, more than $100 million.
“The huge popularity of Euphoria sets each cast member up for huge exposure throughout the time the series is on air, these figures also demonstrate that cast members can make enormous amounts from paid deals purely on Instagram,” said a spokesperson for CasinoBee in a statement released about the study. “The power of social media can skyrocket an actor’s popularity making it easier for fans to connect with the actors who play their favorite characters in the show.”
Zendaya: What Is Her Net Worth?
As AfroTech previously reported, Zendaya has a net worth of $15 million. Most of her net worth comes from her real estate investments and her various endorsements.
Her two biggest real estate purchases were for a $1.4 million home in the Northridge district of Los Angeles, and for an upgraded $4 million estate property in Encino, CA.
Additionally, her work voicing the character of Lola Bunny for the new “Space Jam: Legacy” film netted her a huge chunk of the film’s $161 million budget. She also has super-lucrative deals with Tommy Hilfiger and Daya by Zendaya. And, in 2018, she partnered with Boohoo for another successful fashion collaboration.
So, with all of these numbers in her “win” column, it’s safe to say that Zendaya won’t be worried about going broke anytime soon.
