10. Hilary Swank
Hilary was raised in a trailer park. At the young age of 9, she made her first ever appearance on stage on The Jungle Book. Her parents were separated when she was 15 and because of her mother’s support in her desire for acting, they moved to Los Angeles. There, they lived out in their car and sometimes even slept at friends’ homes until her mother was able to save enough money to be able to rent an apartment. But now, the stones have turned for the Academy-Award winning actress as she has now an estimated net worth of $40 million.
