Just about every movie has some rich bastard as a character. Usually they are miserable, self-centered asses; however, in some cases they can actually be very likable characters. Below are seven of the richest characters from movies who are both asses and decent human beings.
John Gage is a billionaire character played by Robert Redford in the movie, “Indecent Proposal.” Gage is in Las Vegas when Diana Murphy (Demi Moore) a lovely young brunette catches his eye. After Diana and her husband David (Woody Harrelson) gamble away all their savings, Gage offers David one million dollars to sleep with Diana. After the two talked it over, Diana and Dave accept the billionaire’s offer, leading many to ask the question: could they have gotten two million!
Professor Xavier is a billionaire mutant mastermind paraplegic in the X-Men movies. Played by Patrick Steward, Professor Xavier (also referred to as Professor X) founded the Xavier School, a university for mutants. However, one must wonder why Dr. X did not use some of his cash to pimp up his wheel chair.
One of the most popular movie billionaires of all-time, Dr. Evil of the Austin Powers movies, certainly deserves to be on the seven richest movie characters lists. Played by Mike Myers, Dr. Evil owned an underground lair, his own Island, a headquarters based on the moon, and a penis-shaped space ship. Dr. Evil also created a clone of himself, though he probably would have been better off creating clones of hot lesbians.
