How Cash Warren Achieved a Net Worth of $50 Million

Cash Warren

Cash Warren is an American film producer who has been in Hollywood for a few decades. He has an estimated net worth of about $50 million, though that’s not even the most exciting aspect of who he is – or even how he was able to amass that kind of fortune.

He’s also married to a Hollywood movie star, Jessica Alba. Together, they have been able to build quite an empire.

Read on to learn more about Cash Warren and discover how he came to have his net worth today.

Early Life & Career

Cash Garner Warren was born in January 1979. He’s a native of Los Angeles, California, and was born into greatness, as some would say. His father is Michael Warren, a college basketball player and an actor. His mother is Sue Narramore.

He also has three siblings, a sister named Kekoa Brianna Warren, another sister named Makayla, and a half-brother named Grayson Andres. He has remained in Los Angeles for most of his life.

From 1993 until his graduation in 1997, Warren was a student at Crossroads High School in Santa Monica, California. While in high school, Warren followed in his father’s footsteps and played on the basketball team.

Warren focused on his academics throughout high school and college.

After receiving his high school diploma, Warren moved to New Haven, Connecticut. While in the Nutmeg State, Warren matriculated at the Ivy League Yale University. There he studied political science from 1997 until graduation in 2001.

Warren began his career in the entertainment industry, as many others do, as a production assistant. His first job was working on the successful film, Taxi, released in 2004.

This launched a career for him in producing movies. His name appears in the credits of many other movies, including The Rising Son, Modern Family, 30 for 30, Fantastic Four, and Most Modern Family, and over two dozen others.

A few fun facts about Cash Warren:

  • He is of mixed descent, with his father being African American and his mother being white and of English and Scottish ancestry
  • He had horrible acne as a kid
  • He dealt with bullies in high school
  • He played high school basketball with Baron Davis, who became an NBA All-star
  • He has worked on such shows as The Kelly Clarkson Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show

How Did Cash Make His Money?

Not only does Warren work as a film producer, but he has also worked in Hollywood as a director, actor, and even a screenwriter. He is known for movies such as The Fantastic Four, Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, and others.

Given his versatility over a decade of working in TV and movies, Forbes magazine called him one of the most powerful men in Hollywood in 2011.

After releasing “Bloods and Crips: Made in America,” Warren was nominated for the News and Documentary Emmy Awards.

Warren’s career has moved beyond the entertainment industry. He is the founder of several businesses.

Let’s go over a few of his businesses:

  • Verso Entertainment
  • Pair of Thieves
  • Apoko Digital Media Group

One such business focuses directly on the entertainment world, befitting his roots in that industry. Verso Entertainment is an independent full-service film and television production company founded by Warren and one of his friends. He serves as the president of the company.

Verso Entertainment produces original content for various formats, including digital, cable, and broadcast markets. While the company is still in its early stages, it has big plans to produce more content – and this means that Cash Warren's net worth could increase exponentially as Verso becomes a bigger name and gets involved in more productions.

Warren also launched Pair of Thieves. He co-founded Pair of Thieves with David Ehrenberg and Alan Stuart to design and sell luxury socks and underwear. Cash Warren is listed first on the company website and identified as the most stylish of the three founders. He is also the one who is responsible for heading up product design and merchandising.

The company produces items for men, women, and children alike. They were frustrated with “bad socks” and decided that they wanted to focus on performance, value, and style.

The company launched in 2014, starting in Target. It was so successful that the product sold out across the US.

Their products, they say, use the finest quality fabrics to ensure comfort and are treated with special techniques to ensure each pair has the signature Pair of Thieves style.

Products include:

  • Underwear
  • Socks
  • Loungewear
  • Shirts

Warren has said publicly that Alba has been a large help in running the sock and underwear company. She helps him test the products to ensure they are durable, sufficiently stretchy, and comfortable. Warren also credits Alba with having excellent taste and instinct in the fields of fashion and design, which are undoubtedly useful when running a clothing company.

Finally, Warren was able to capitalize on his Hollywood connections when he co-founded Apoko Digital Media Group. This company helped movie stars, professional athletes, and other celebrities connect with their fans on social media.

Cash Warren’s Net Worth

Cash Warren’s net worth has grown substantially in the past few years – and much of that has to do with the growth of several of his companies.

In 2019, his net worth was an impressive $23 million. In 2024, it has more than doubled to a net worth of about $50 million.

The majority of his net worth comes from his production company. lists the company’s revenue at $1.3 billion. The company has such credits as:

  • Being Terry Kennedy
  • Crips and Bloods: Made in America
  • In The Blood

It’s also worth pointing out that Cash Warren has topped the list of being among the highest-paid producers, according to Media Mass. From December 2022 to December 2023, he earned approximately $58 million.

Pair of Thieves is also doing quite well as a brand, considering that they are available not only on the company website but in major retail outlets such as Target. However, because Cash Warren is a co-founder with two others, his earnings aren’t as high as they would be if he were the sole founder. Still, it’s a nice revenue stream that he can enjoy for years to come.

Cash Warren is only one aspect of the net worth since it’s important to take his wife into consideration. She has a net worth of approximately $390 million, which is predominantly from her earnings as an actress.

Some of her net worth has (and will continue to be used) to help Cash with his various endeavors. Considering the two are so close and both see themselves as entrepreneurs, there’s no telling what projects they could create next. It’s likely that we haven’t seen the end of the companies they will launch – and this will positively impact the net worth of both Cash Warren and Jessica Alba.

Cash Warren & Jessica Alba: A Successful Union

While Warren started in the entertainment industry, he is not the most famous person in his family. That would be his wife, the noted actress Jessica Alba.

Alba started acting at the age of 13 with “Camp Nowhere,” a movie that debuted in 1994. She’s now 42, and Cash Warren is three years her senior.

It’s clear that Alba has more experience with Hollywood. While she is the younger of the two, she got her start in 1993, while Cash didn’t join the ranks of Hollywood until 11 years later, in 2004. As such, she is likely helping him with navigating the various opportunities and helping him to make connections that are needed not only for his work as a producer but also for his production company and other entrepreneurial projects that he has going on.

Forbes identified Jessica Alba as one of “America’s Richest Entrepreneurs Under 40” in 2016. This has to do with her strictly being an entrepreneur and nothing to do with acting. She’s the co-founder of The Honest Company (started in 2011). The company was valued at $1.7 billion in 2015 and is known as an e-commerce company for such things as baby wipes and diapers. They have grown to sell over 100 products.

With Alba being an entrepreneur, it’s only right that Cash Warren is, too – and her success has likely helped his own companies be more successful.

Alba had just ended a breakup with Michael Weatherly, who was considerably older than she was. The two had been engaged, but things ended in August of 2003.

Warren and Alba met while working on the film, The Fantastic Four. While the movie was released in 2005, they met in 2004 while it was filmed in Vancouver. The movie was critically panned but was a success at the box office. She had one of the leads (playing Sue Storm) while he was a director’s assistant.

Warren was responsible for taking Polaroids of Alba wearing various contact lenses.

Alba and Warren were said to have hit it off immediately. Though they were both dating other people at the time, they said it was love at first sight.

Alba told InStyle during an interview, “I just knew when I met him that I was going to know him forever. It was weird; He instantly felt like family. I’d never felt like that with anyone. We got each other. We’re kindred spirits.”

The pair began to date in 2007 and were married a year later, in May 2008. The two did not have a long engagement but rather got married on a whim. After discussing marriage, they tied the knot the same day.

There’s a reason why the couple has a combined net worth of over $400 million. They’re extremely frugal.

While many in Hollywood are known for their over-the-top dream weddings in extraordinary (and expensive) destinations with guest lists that are often 300 or more, that’s not what Jessica and Cash decided on.

Instead, they were quite spontaneous. They decided to head to the courthouse to get married. Their celebration involved getting waffles afterward.

The couple have three kids:

  • Honor, a daughter, born in 2007
  • Haven, a daughter, born in 2011
  • Hayes, a son, born in 2017

Warren is also known as a devoted family man and “girl dad.” He even goes as far as coaching his daughter’s soccer team. So, while he may have a high net worth and be married to an actual movie star, he’s proving that his greatest role may be as husband and dad.

It is also worth noting that the couple purchased a home in Los Angeles for $10 million. It features seven bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, and a one-bathroom guest cottage on the property.

In May of 2023, they celebrated 15 years of marriage.

Both Cash & Jessica Focus on Philanthropy

With Cash Warren’s net worth of $50 million and Jessica Alba’s being about six times more than that, you can bet that the couple engages in quite a few philanthropic endeavors – both individually and together.

Cash Warren is noted for supporting the following charities:

  • Step Up
  • Baby2Baby

He is also on the board of directors for a non-profit called Get Schooled, which works to improve high school graduation rates.

Rumors That May Impact Cash Warren’s Net Worth

There are a lot of rumors that are circulating – and some of these can make people believe that Cash Warren’s net worth is considerably higher. Additionally, some rumors may also have a negative impact on what his net worth is believed to be.

We’re going to confirm or deny some of those rumors for you now:

  • Rumor: He owns Fat Warren Burger. False – There is actually no restaurant chain by this name.
  • Rumor: He owns the Los Angeles Angels. False – While Warren is a regular attendee of the games, Arturo Moreno owns this baseball team.
  • Rumor: He launched a brand of vodka known as Pure. False – Neither he nor Jessica Alba owns any alcohol companies.
  • Rumor: He has a fashion line called “Seduction.” False – There is a fashion line of this name in Los Angeles, where Warren lives, but he has no financial connection to it.
  • Rumor: He and Jessica Alba are splitting up. False – There was a brief separation a few years into their marriage because of Warren’s jealousy. However, the two are stronger than ever now.

Hopefully, now that you know that there are a lot of false rumors about Cash Warren, you can understand what he is and isn’t responsible for.

With a $50 million net worth and a strong marriage to Jessica Alba, his net worth will only grow in the next few years.
