Estimating how valuable a celebrity can be is no easy task. While it is simple to look up how much actors, actresses, or directors have received for certain projects, it’s more difficult to assess the annual value that a person adds through the sum of his or her activities. But in the 1950s, the studio system actually did compensate Hollywood stars in that manner, rather than through a fixed series of contracts.

By assembling a massive graph of connections that displays personalities, movies, initiatives, projects, and everything else that makes money in Hollywood, the Hollywood Creative Graph is used to determine the annual value each big name brings to the table. Let’s take a closer look at the top 10 names on the Numbers Bankabiity Index — the most valuable names in Hollywood.

10. Kathleen Kennedy

In order to crack the top 10, you need to have an annual value of more than $18 million, just like Kathleen Kennedy. Though not by any means the most famous name on the list, Kennedy has been a producer on many Hollywood hits, including Jurassic Park, The Sixth Sense, and War of the Worlds.
