Elle Fanning started making money at the tender age of three with various minor movie roles. Now in her late teens, the star has since gained both far more notable screen time and huge paychecks with roles in the likes of Super 8, Maleficent and The Neon Demon.

Amanda Bynes graduated from Nickelodeon to prime-time sitcoms such as What I Like About You and big-screen romantic comedies like What a Girl Wants and She’s the Man in short order. And, as a result, Bynes had reportedly built up a fortune of $8 million by 2007. However, the troubled star, who retired from acting in 2012, has apparently since frittered away half of this amount.
