Paul Walker Earned A Lot Of Money This Year Thanks To Furious 7

Celebrity

But money can't heal the wound of his loss.

It’s been nearly two years since the tragic death of actor Paul Walker in that horrific Porsche Carrera GT crash. While there are still ongoing lawsuits against Porsche regarding that car’s safety features (or lack therefore), Paul Walker’s family still has his legacy to uphold. The late actor’s charity, Reach Out WorldWide, remains very much active in providing aid to those affected by disaster and other humanitarian crises. But Walker also had a huge blockbuster success at the box office. "Furious 7" has earned over $1 billion and counting.

Because of that, its biggest stars are being paid handsomely. According to the latest Forbes list of top-earning deceased celebrities, Paul Walker earned $10.5 million over the past year. He’s actually ninth on their list. Number one is Michael Jackson at $115 million, followed by Elvis Presley ($55 million), Peanuts creator Charles Schulz ($40 million), Bob Marley ($21 million), Elizabeth Taylor ($20 million), Marilyn Monroe ($17 million), John Lennon ($12 million), and Albert Einstein ($11 million).
