MSN Money takes a look at the stars with business savvy.
It's no surprise that celebrities are wealthy, but some of them are doing more with their money than splashing out on chihuahuas and fast cars.
From Emma Watson to Marilyn Manson, a few celebrities have built considerable business empires with their wealth. And some of them might surprise you...

yes they have everything- isn't that just a bit greedy when so many young brilliant people who have worked hard to obtain degrees at university and have nothing but debt to show for it, cannot find a simple basic chance of a career?
I am fed up of so called celebrities getting yet another chance to make money whilst other talents go unrecognised and having nothing to show for it.
Just looking at the pictures above- do they really deserve their millions??
Bono being the biggest hypocrite of the lot!
Kate Moss - incredible looks! was the reporter blind, look at the photo! a coke, nicotine and booze hag with apparently the morals of an alley cat.
Sarah Beeny gets her publicity from the channel 4 show and the money to rebuild her house although the local council don't like her that much!
For the rest, it just goes to show that there are people who will buy anything as long as it has a "name" on it!
I agree that it is annoying that these celebs seem to be able to get richer and richer just trading on their name while other young talented people can't get anywhere because they aren't already well known but look on the bright side (go with me on this there is one!)
All these business ventures these celebs are launching need employees. People are getting jobs out of this, they get paid for these jobs and then they spend that money back into our economy. The celebs themselves and their employees pay tax, more cash back into the old coffers. If the people who actually design the clothes and write the books etc (lets face it we all know the celebs don't do it themselves!) are happy to let the celebs take the credit to boost sales who are we to tell them they shouldn't. It's their work and their decision. I would imagine they get well paid for it or they wouldn't do it.
If Watson was a spotty ugly girl acting in Harry Potterher career would be over by now.
Bad mothers like Katie Price's clothes sell because she in a niche naff market of footballer type wives. Sadly Britain is rammed full of naff people sad enough to buy her sh1te at stupid prices. She is so naff she should be advertising Burberry check.
Beckam ? A joke. A talentless plain-jane alien with an eating disorder that is lucky she had the life she did when the girl band concept took off. Marrying David was the best move she played. He though should of spread himself about and not be tied down with such a drag. VB has 4 kids. No doubt unbearable and precocious. A reality show with the Osbournes is watchable, one about the Beckhams would be less welcomed than sucking cyanide through my tear ducts.
Combs ? well he's a murderer ganster who made money through (c)rap music. People like him and drug dealer 50 Cent should be in jail but instead are rewarded with riches beyond belief.
McCartney, well, how much money can one person need / want ? I like him though.
Kate Moss aka Moose. Awful. Any female that lowers themselves to get involved with a filthy fingernailed junkie like Peter Dogherty needs to move to Amsterdam redlight district and lease a window. Personification = scrubber.
Bono, overrated awful twatter. Don't have time for him.
Bruce Dickinson is ace.
As is Marilyn Manson.
Bowie - the bomb. Wheres he gone ? come back David.
The rest can go to hell. What have they contributed to the world in the positions where they can ? nada.
here we go again another lovely picture of sexy emma watson
she always has me grasping my magic wand and shouting "EXPELIAMOUS" ahhhhhhhhhhhh that better.
Just looking at the pictures above- do they really deserve their millions?? From ms Gibson.
When JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter, she was not rich, what she gave through her writing was a fantasy story that captured the world. When Emma Watson was given the chance to play Hermione at the age of 10 or so, she was one of three main protagonists that bought life to a book that was well written. It is all about chance, being there at the right time and place.
Sour grapes and envy is what I read in your post.
There's nothing wrong, just reading through comments and some people are kind of bitter! It's what anyone would do, they were given opportunities to become famous, they had talent, and they're famous. I wouldn't judge celebrities for clothes lines and the way they spend their money, a lot of them, in fact the majority of them donate to charities, and they enjoy life and embrace what they have. I don't think it's in a person's instinct to think, "I have so much money and am super famous, let me just forget about all that and pretend I am completely ordinary." They're people, faults and all, it's not right to point out their faults, you wouldn't do that if it were an ordinary person. Just my opinion. ;)
