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.
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.
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.
Geri Halliwell – you might know her as Ginger Spice – looks positively puny next to her hulking bodyguard as they walk Geri's dog. This English singer-songwriter has had plenty of bodyguards over the years, but this one has been getting some press on the “hunky bodyguards” fan pages.
Geri isn't afraid to help out her bodyguards with a little bit of match-making, apparently. Triple M's Rob Palmer mentioned that Geri attempted to set him up with one of her bodyguards decades ago. While the connection never happened, it's nice seeing Geri trying to help out her bodyguards in that way.
Jack Nicholson's bodyguards take everything seriously. One reporter, Kratovil Horn, approached Nicholson about an interview and was immediately pushed away. Horn stated that he had no hard feelings – the bodyguards were just doing their jobs. And for a mere ten thousand dollars a year, they're doing a pretty good job, too.
Nicholson might not be acting very much anymore, but he hasn't exactly slowed down. Now in his eighties, he has some of the biggest roles under his belt. According to one of the actor's relatives, Jack is at a hundred percent.
