According to Celebrity Net Worth, the actress has a net worth of $40 million (£29.7 million) as of 2020.
She was only 14 when she started landing major film roles, so there is no surprise she has built up an astonishing net worth.
Her role in Buffy, as the titular character’s (Sarah Michelle Gellar) best friend, was considered to be her breakout role and she received plenty of praise for her character’s story.
She gained worldwide recognition after her character started same-sex relationship with Tara Maclay (Amber Benson).
Following her career in Buffy, she went on to star in American Pie, which was one of her top earners.
As well as her TV and film roles, the actress is known for her love of the West End and she took part in an adaptation of When Harry Met Sally in 2004.
From 2016 she became a host for a number of TV series, and her latest ventures include a number of Disney projects such as Fancy Nancy and Kim Possible.

The actress has won many prestigious accolades across her fruitful career, including a Saturn Award in 2002 for Best Supporting Actress on Television in Buffy.

Fans have been rewatching the star in Buffy, since the series was picked up by Amazon Prime Video and, later, All 4.
