7. Amy Adams
Star’s Net Worth: $43 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $75,000*
Amy Adams has starred in her fair share of Hollywood blockbusters, from Enchanted to Arrival. However, Adams maintains a relatively low profile when she’s not working. We haven’t seen her in any high-stakes drama that doesn’t play out on screen, which might be why her security costs are a little more modest than some others.

The actress does make sure she’s escorted on red carpets by her own team, even if she doesn’t need round-the-clock security. Adams has managed to toe the line and largely keep her private life private, which certainly helps stave off paparazzi attention.
Adams quite often employs security guards on the recommendation of other A-list celebrities, which is why some of her team may look familiar to trawlers of gossip sites. It’s not unusual to see the actress step out with well-known celebrity protectors.
8. Taylor Swift
Star’s Net Worth: $290 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $400,000*
Ever since she first exploded onto the music scene in the late ‘00s, Taylor Swift’s profile has kept going up and up. With more best-selling albums and tours under her belt than you can shake a stick at, the talented songstress also has an army of loyal fans.

Thanks to her numerous feuds with other stars, Swift has remained a popular name in the gossip columns and on social media sites like Facebook, so the paparazzi are always keen to snap a picture. Luckily, Taylor usually has not one, but two bodyguards that follow her wherever she goes to make sure nothing untoward happens.
This often includes doing things that perhaps the guards may not be all that keen on, like sitting in the back seat on a rollercoaster ride or going shopping for hours on end. Thankfully, the salary more than makes up for that!
