63. David Geffen
The Brooklyn native spearheaded a talent competition at his high school. He used a fake UCLA degree to keep his gig in the mail room at entertainment agency William Morris; that he never attended UCLA didn’t stop him from donating $400 million to the university. The Hollywood power broker founded Asylum Records and Geffen Records and launched careers of such bands as Aerosmith and Guns N’ Roses. He may have mostly retired from the entertainment business, but he still regularly surrounds himself with famous faces (Oprah, Dicaprio, Springsteen), whom he often hosts on his $470 million yacht, Rising Sun.
