How did Laudya Cynthia Bella Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on February 24, 1988 in West Java, Indonesia, Laudya Cynthia Bella spent her childhood in the capital of Bandung. While still in school, she participated and came out as one of the finalists in a competition held by Kawanku Magazine- she was only fourteen years old at the time. From there, she took on a few jobs as a model, before appearing in a couple of music videos by artists Glenn Fredly and Jikustik. Some of the brands that she worked for included La Tulipe, IM3, XL, Sophie Paris, Garner, and Dulcolax.
In 2004, the young Indonesian star received a big break after landing a lead role in the drama film, Virgin. Directed by Academy Award-winning director Hanna Saputra, it starred the actress as Biyan, a sixteen year old who is determined to stay a virgin until marriage. A big hit upon its release, it garnered Bella much exposure and attention at the time; not only that, but her splendid performance in the film earned her a Festival Film Bandung Award for Best Female Leading Role and a MTV Indonesia Movie Award for Most Rising Star.
Two years later, she played one of the lead characters in the Indonesian horror film, Lentera Merah (2006). Despite its relatively low budget, it was viewed by over 300,000 individuals at the theatres. Starring alongside Dimas Beck, Firrina Sinatrya, and Teuku Wisnu, Bella portrayed the role of Rosa Priliyanti, a college student who applies for a job with the campus newspaper after an employee is found dead at the office.
Following that, the actress appeared in the movies Bukan Bintang Biasa (2007), Love (2008), Suka Ma Suka (2009), and Cowok Bikin Pusing (2011). Her next big role came later in 2011, when she was given the part of Zainab in the drama film, Di Bawah Lindungan Ka’bah. Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th annual Academy Awards, it revolved around the relationship between two teenagers of different social class. Hailed for her portrayal, the movie garnered Bella a Guardians e-Awards for Best Leading Actress.
In 2012, she once again found herself playing the role of a protagonist in the horror film, Belenggu. Set in Jakarta, the movie premiered at the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival before being released in Indonesia in February 2013. Although reviews for the motion picture were generally mixed, with some criticizing its lack of creativity, it netted the actress an Indonesian Movie Award for Favourite Actress and two nominations for an Indonesian Movie Award and an Indonesian Film Festival Award.
Continuing to monetize her popularity on the big screen, Bella went on to take part in the movies, Haji Backpacker (2014), Tok Kemal Make Tok Sayang (2014), Assalamualaikum Beijing (2014), and Kakak (2015).
In the summer of 2015, Bella co-starred in the award-winning drama film, Surga Yang Tok Dirindukan alongside Raline Shah, Fedi Nuril, Tanta Ginting, and Kemal Pahlevi. Having put on a spectacular performance, her acting netted her several industry awards including a Festival Film Bandung Award, two I-Cinema Awards, and an Indonesian Box Office Movie Award for Best Female Leading Actress.
Since then, she has played lead roles in Talak Tiga (2015), and Aisyah: Biarkan Kami Bersaudara (2016), both of which further boosted her profile in the show business.
Although most of her wealth may have come from film, Bella has also taken part in countless television productions over the years. After landing her first lead role in the soap opera, Senandung Masa Pubert (2003), she was cast in Cerita Si Angel (2004), Kisah Sedih di Hari Minggu (2005), Pacarku Superstar (2005), The Pakis (2005), and Jurangan Jenkl (2006), to name a few.
Throughout the rest of the 2000’s, the Indonesian actress starred in the shows Pengen Jadi Bintang (2007), Romantic Remaja (2007), Legend (2007), Cinta Bunga (2007), Tasbih Cinta (2008), and Cinta Bunga 2 (2008). In 2009, Bellas starred in the long running series, Kesetiaan Cinta, remaining on the show until July 2010. Following that, she played a lead characters in Kesucian Cinta in 2011.
Aside from acting, Bella has been involved with many variety shows including Extravaganza ABG (2006), Ngabuburit Season 1 (2012), Saatnya Kita Sahur (2010), Pesbukers (2014), Sahurnya Ramadhan (2014), and Ngabuburit Season 2 (2014).
A multi-talented lady, she has also established herself as a popular singer in Indonesia. In 2006, she joined Belly Goeslaw’s music group, Bukan Bintang Biasa (BBB); the lineup also included Ayushita, Dimas Beck, Raffi Ahmad, and Chelsea Olivia Wijaya. With the group, Bella has sang several songs including Let’s Dance Together, Karena Cinta, Putus Nyambung, Jodoh Ditangan Tuhan, Kuingin Menikhah, and CH2.
As far as television films go, Bella’s taken up close to a dozen different roles. Since she first appeared in Juranhan Jengkol in 2008, she has been cast in the titles, Kalau Jodoh Taken Lari (2009), Api Cinta (2011), Mohon Jaga Hatiku (2011), Cinta Lampau Bikin Galau (2013), and Mr. Gunung Chintaku (2014), among others, most of which feature her as a lead character.
Putting her singing talent to good use in front of the cameras, she’s also played the parts of Princess Dream in the musical drama, Pangeran Katak & Puteri Impian (2006), and Angel Heaven in Musical Lutung Kasarung (2012).
One of the most popular celebrities in Indonesia, Bella is also a social media influencer on Instagram with over 17.9 million followers on the photo/video sharing app. Depending on the post, she typically receives anywhere between 100K-500K+ likes. With that kind of audience and reach, it wouldn’t be surprising if she were to be inundated- on a regular basis, by various brands and companies for advertising opportunities. Social marketing is nothing to scoff at- certain stars can earn upwards of a few tens of thousands of dollars per campaign.
To sum up, it’s obvious that the 29-year-old actress has multiple things going for her on the money front. Not only does she bank a considerable amount from her film appearances, but her extensive involvement in television also yields her a pretty sum (e.g. TV series, variety shows, TV films, etc). Of course, we also can’t forget about her successful music career with BBB as well- it’s only natural that she’d be paid for her singing.
Currently it is estimated that Laudya Cynthia Bella has a net worth of $200,000. Will her assets continue to grow over time? If her success up until now is of any indication, it’s highly likely that her fortune will continue to go up in the near future (assuming that she carries on with her acting career and doesn’t quit the show business anytime soon).
