How rich is Ben Stiller?
Ben Stiller has already joined the ranks of the best-earning male actors in Hollywood several times. Between June 2007 and the summer of the following year, the star reportedly raked in $40 million in fees. In 2011, it is true, Stiller earned only 34 million US dollars. However, this still put him in 6th place among the best-paid actors. Over the years, the fortune of the father of two has grown so proudly. Ben Stiller’s estimated net worth is 200 million dollars.
Comedy & Drama
His sense of humor has made this man filthy rich. The penchant for comedy runs in the family. Stiller’s parents, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara were also able to make a name for themselves as well-known comedians. The fact that the family lived in New York during Stiller’s childhood and youth was very favorable for his son’s career, given the many comedy clubs in the Big Apple. The future Hollywood star appeared on TV for the first time at the age of ten. The fact that Ben Stiller never finished his studies will surprise only a few fans.
Instead of studying, the native New Yorker preferred to shoot a parody of the film “The Color of Money” and credited himself with playing Tom Cruise. The fact that “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) aired the film in 1987 was a real stroke of luck for the budding comedian. He was suddenly known throughout the U.S. and was even able to snag a role in a Steven Spielberg flick. From the end of the 1980s, Ben Stiller appeared regularly on SNL.
An impressive career – an impressive fortune
Stiller got his first own TV show in 1990. Although MTV had initially been responsible for the format, it was broadcast by FOX from 1991. Even an Emmy Award for the show was not to reach. After three seasons, the TV format came to an abrupt end. But Ben Stiller was not deterred by a few more flops. Even though “Generation X” and “Cable Guy” are not among his greatest hits, the star has persistently kept his eye on the ball. The comedian finally achieved his big Hollywood breakthrough in 1998 with the hit movie “Crazy About Mary. For this hit, Ben Stiller received a fee of 3 million US dollars.
The divorced Hollywood star was able to celebrate some of his other major successes in the next few years with comedy productions such as “My Bride, Her Father and Me” and the sequel “My Wife, Her In-Law Parents and Me” (fee 10 million US dollars). In the further sequel called “My wife, our children and I” even Stiller’s sister Amy took part. Ben Stiller was able to greatly increase his earnings in the third part of the comedy production. He received a fee of 20 million US dollars for it.
At the same time, Owen Wilson is one of the people with whom Ben has been in front of the camera most often. The duo has appeared on the big screen around a dozen times. In German-speaking countries, Oliver Rohrbeck has appeared as Ben Stiller’s dubbing voice since 1998. Whether “Zoolander” (fee 2.5 million US dollars), “The Royal Tenenbaums”, “King of Queens”, “Temporary Gangsters” (fee 15 million US dollars) or “The Amazing Life of Walter Mitty,” Ben Stiller’s filmography is now extremely long. The movie-going public can expect many more laughs from this star in the future. The incredible fortune will also continue to increase.
