Is Jerry Seinfeld The Richest Actor in Hollywood?

We knew Jerry's Seinfeld royalties would be good, but are they $820 million good?! That's how much a new report calling Jerry the richest actor in Hollywood claims he is worth.
To set the record straight, the 60-year-old comic sat down with ET's Rocsi Diaz for a one-on-one interview that, sadly, did not take place inside a robot made of solid gold - which is the first thing anyone with that kind of cash would likely buy.
Seinfeld, who is currently promoting the new season of his Emmy-nominated web talk show Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, told Rocsi that his wealth has been exaggerated.
"I called the people that did that story, and said, 'Where do I go to get that money?'" joked Seinfeld. "I said, 'Where did you get that figure, because I would like to pick that up!'"
However, it doesn't mean that the $820 million figure is out the question in the future, considering Seinfeld has no plan to quit comedy any time soon. When asked how long he saw himself continuing to work, he said, "To death!"
