Since Facebook’s initial public offering on May 17, the social networking site is now worth $115 billion, which means that its founders – and many others – just got a lot richer. EW spoke with FOX Business Network reporter Sandra Smith, who gave us the rundown on how much Mark Zuckerberg, Sean Parker, Eduardo Saverin and the Winklevoss twins stand to make since Facebook went public. And it’s a lot more than the actors who played them on-screen in The Social Network are pulling in. Check below to see how much fatter Zuckerberg’s, Parker’s, Saverin’s and the Winkelvosses’ wallets are than their Hollywood counterparts’* – Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Andrew Garfield and Armie Hammer respectively.
“The value of Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth swelled to over $20 billion dollars, firmly putting him in the club of the world’s richest people at 28 years old,” Smith explained. “Sean Parker’s net worth soared to over $2.6 billion dollars and Eduardo Saverin’s net worth topped the $2 billion mark.”
“Even some of Mr. Zuckerberg’s enemies are now millionaires. The value of Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss’ shares rose to over $300 million on the opening day,” Smith added.
So how do they compare to their on-screen personas? Take a look.
Mark Zuckerberg’s estimated net worth: $20 billion
