How did Michelle Williams amass 16 million dollars?
I rarely hear of her. How did she amass such a fortune?
Her daughter inherited a shitload of money.
That's not much of a fortune. She's been acting for years, she should have at least that. She is likely B list, and should be pulling in at least 2-3 million a picture.
From being Beyonce's background dancer?
She was on a TV series for a while. If she hired a financial adviser back then, and kept up discipline, that sounds about right.
For doing a hit job on Heath Ledger.
t.v. makes actors rich. Movies, not so much.
She does small movies where she makes a million or so, and it looks like she lives fairly frugally for a celebrity.
Which Michelle Williams are we talking about?
The one who was in Destiny's Child?
Or the one who is a movie star?
My questions answer yours, no matter which question it is.
Rarely hear of her? Are you not on DL much? Do you ever watch tv or go to the movies?
She's bullshit, such a phony, haven't liked anything she's ever done. Druggy.

Her dad is a financial adviser and so is she -- she won some investment competition in Oz back when she was a teen
In Oz? As in Australia? She's from Kalispell, Montana.
Her father moved the family to Australia when she was a kid.
?? This information appears nowhere on her Wikipedia page. It says she grew up in San Diego and became emancipated at 15 to move to LA and get acting work.
Her father is a well-known tax protester whose been arrested for tax evasion before (at least once, that I can find reference to, in Australia), so maybe her Wikipedia page has been scrubbed of references to him.
Dawson's Creek royalties. It was the biggest show on earth for a short time (1999 - 2001)
R16,before Michelle joined the cast of "Dawson's Creek" she'd been doing some after-hours interning at a financial investment firm in between trying to get her license as a nail technician. Within the span of three months, she had moved with her dad from Romania, Switzerland, Abu Dhabi and Kurdistan, which made it pretty difficult to concentrate on her nail tech license. Her father was a semi-professional dog race gambler and moved the family seasonally, mostly because of a computer algorithm he'd programmed that had a 76% accuracy rating in predicting dog race outcomes by country. Long story short, they wind up in Australia, her next door neighbor is shot, she opens a black-market hospital in her basement, she never gets her nail tech license, but after doing a year in jail, rediscovers her love of finance through an extra-cirricular program offered at the halfway house she'd been living in at the time.
This thread got weirdddddddddd.
Didn't Heath leave her some money as well, for help in raising Matilda. I know that Matilda got money but can't remeber if Michelle got money as well.
That face is a living advertisement for MOON PIES. She gets royalties.
Hm, in an interview with Fresh Air last year she indicated that the Marilyn movie was a welcome chance to work. Said something like, 'you take what's offered'.
She hasn't done high-grossing films like Spiderman. She does low-budget stuff like, "Wendy & Lucy", "Blue Valentine" and "Meek's Cutoff".
