Showbiz, they say is a great income equalizer. An actress or actor’s salary is not being discriminated by age, but by their talents and popularity. An 18-yr old superstar can earn as much as a 40-year old star can. Age does not really matter in showbizness. Having said this, it is of great possibility that most teenage stars of today can earn double or triple as much as a regular actor/actress has. Aside from talents and popularity, the age of the market or the viewers is also the factor. When learning why most teenagers now are the highest paid celebrities, it is because most of the viewers and the TV consumers are of the same age; no doubt about that. So, to prove those points, here’s a list of the top 5 richest teenage celebrities in the country!
