Which ‘Good Girls’ Star Has the Highest Net Worth?
NBC’s comedy-drama, Good Girls, stars Christina Hendricks, Retta, and Mae Whitman as a crew of suburban moms living a life of crime. All three actors have impressive resumes. So which Good Girls star has the highest net worth?
‘Good Girl’ star Mae Whitman’s career began when she was 2-years-old
Mae Whitman started as a child actor, landing one of her first commercials at two. As a 6-year-old, she was cast in the 1994 film, When a Man Loves a Woman, opposite Meg Ryan and Andy Garcia.
Whitman has since appeared in several blockbuster films over the years, including Independence Day, One Fine Day, and The DUFF. Her TV credits include popular series like Friends, ER, Grey’s Anatomy, and Arrested Development.
The actor picked up Young Artist Awards for her performances in Hope Floats and An American Rhapsody. And she’s been recognized for her work on The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Parenthood.
As of 2021, Celebrity Net Worth puts Whitman’s financial standing at $1 million.
Retta started out as a stand-up comic
Retta, whose real name is Marietta Sangai Sirleaf, started her career in show business after graduating with a pre-med and sociology degree from Duke University. Utilizing her brilliant sense of humor, she performed as a stand-up comedian early in her career.
Her first on-screen appearance came in 1997, with a small guest spot on Moesha. She eventually landed roles on Slackers, Rodney, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. But Retta’s breakout project was NBC’s Parks and Recreation, in which she portrayed Donna Meagle for all seven seasons.
In Good Girls, Retta plays Ruby Hill, a mom of two who joins her best friends in robbing a grocery store to help pay for her ill daughter’s medical treatment. Her current salary is unknown. But according to Celebrity Net Worth, Retta’s net worth in 2021 is $2 million.
‘Good Girls’ star Christina Hendricks is a six-time Emmy nominee
Before taking on the role of Beth Dolan in Good Girls, Christina Hendricks was most known for playing Joan Holloway on the hit AMC drama Mad Men. The actor earned six Primetime Emmy nominations, two Screen Actors Guild awards, and two Critics’ Choice awards for her performance.
But outside of Good Girls and Mad Men, Hendricks has been attached to dozens of TV and film projects. She appeared on popular shows like Tin Star and ER. And her movie credits include Toy Story 4, Bad Santa 2, and American Woman.
Hendricks has been working non-stop for nearly 20 years, so she’s racked up quite a significant financial portfolio. As reported by Celebrity Net Worth, her total net worth in 2021 is $10 million.
She reportedly earned $100,000 per episode for Mad Men. And considering how successful Good Girls is for NBC, Hendricks is likely making more for this current role.
With a financial standing of $10 million, Hendricks has the highest net worth of her Good Girls’ co-stars. New episodes of Good Girls air Sunday nights on NBC.
