While Adams keeps a relatively low profile when she isn’t working, she has still starred in some big blockbuster hits like “Enchanted” and “Arrival.” Her security costs are rather modest compared to a lot of other actresses, even compared to her net worth of sixty million dollars. Of course, she still has her escort when she’s on the red carpet, even though she doesn’t need one around the clock.
Her private life is quite private, so she doesn’t have a standing guard, meaning she’ll often hire bodyguards for specific events on recommendations from other celebrities. It’s not uncommon for her to step out with bodyguards who already appear on this list.
As one of the most famous actors in the world, it would be more of a surprise if Brad Pitt DIDN'T have a bodyguard with him at all times. In fact, he has an entire team – and spends more than two million dollars a year on them.
One of his bodyguards, Billy Billingham, is a former S.A.S. Soldier. What does that mean? Don't even pretend to get in a fight with one of them – they very well might be the most highly-trained fighting force on the planet. Billingham also worked with Pitt's ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, and had nothing but good things to say about the couple.
Along with her former husband Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie has six children, meaning she has quite the need for safety while she's working as a famous actress.
A former bodyguard for the couple, Billy Billingham, has praised them for being so dedicated to their kids' safety. Apparently, Jolie was always concerned that someone would try and kidnap the children for ransom money. Jolie and Pitt have a combined worth of about a billion dollars, so it's a reasonable fear. Due to all of the attention they got during and after their relationship, Jolie still employs a team of security to make sure everyone is safe.
Drake might be rap's nice guy, but his bodyguards are anything but nice. Costing Drake more than three-hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year, the protection for this recording artist is physically menacing and aggressive, if the videos of them yelling at people are any indication.
The rapper is always hiring more people, and he boosted his protection after a melee at a nightclub, thanks to Chris Brown. Drake is one of the most famous rappers in the world, meaning there are plenty of people out there who want autographs, pictures, or a chance to deck Drake right in the mug. He pays big to make sure that the last group doesn't get close.
This member of our list should really come as no surprise. She was the most famous member of royalty that the world likely had, a head of state, and famous. As such, she paid about a hundred and forty million dollars a year in security – or the country of England did, at least.
She had a team of infantry called the Queen's Guard, which guarded not only her Royal Highness but also the different residences that the family utilizes. The rules have been in place since the seventeenth century. When she used to be at home, the Queen had three officers and forty soldiers protecting her – and, somehow, a man still snuck into her bedroom in 1982.
