Star Wars creator George Lucas tops this year’s ranking of the richest celebrities in America 2018 with a net worth of $5.4 billion thanks largely to the fortune he pocketed when his Lucasfilm production company sold to Disney for $4.1 billion in 2012.

New to the list this year is Kylie Jenner, whose $900 million net worth puts her on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever. The 21-year-old runs Kylie Cosmetics, which has shifted more than $630 million in makeup since its launch two years ago by targeting her 168 million-plus social media followers.

The 10 richest celebrities in America hold a combined fortune of $18.7 billion, more than the GDP of Iceland.
