    In the US, social status is largely dependent on wealth -- sometimes on old family reputation, but mostly on wealth.

    In ordinary society, professionals like doctors and lawyers enjoy relatively high social status, along with CEOs and other top executives of major companies.

    There are others who do (successful writers, for example), but sometimes only in certain sectors of society.  Whether entertainers enjoy high social status is a subject that many people might debate at length without coming to a consensus, even though entertainers tend to be wealthy.
