Hugh Jackman’s Career
Hugh Jackman was born on Oct. 12, 1968, in Sydney, Australia. Jackman didn’t really follow in his family’s footsteps by becoming an actor. He was born to a housewife and an accountant. He went on to study Communications at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. Once he received his Bachelor’s of the Arts in Communications he went on to take acting classes at the Acting Centre of Sydney.
He graduated from university in 1991, however, it wasn’t until 1998 that Jackman truly became known outside of Australia. That year Jackman landed the leading role as Curly in Oklahoma! which was being performed in London’s West End. One year later he also starred in a film version of the screenplay as well.
In 2000, Jackman landed the role of Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s Xmen. The part had very few lines but needed a lot of emotion behind each of them. His wife, Deborra, admitted that she urged her husband not to take the role of Wolverine at the time. She is glad that he ignored her though because Jackman was able to portray the role perfectly and it has led to great success in his acting career since.
He has gone on to star in nine more Xmen films since then as well as various other films and plays. He starred in Van Helsing and Australia and has voiced numerous other parts in films such as Rise of the Guardians. In addition to his career on the big screen, Jackman has also been able to continue a career on the stage. With so many successful films, including the Xmen series, under his belt, what is Hugh Jackman’s net worth?
Hugh Jackman’s Net Worth
If you consider the way Jackman was practically catapulted into the spotlight through his role as Wolverine, he has made a pretty good name for himself on and off the screen. His finances aren’t looking too bad either. Hugh Jackman’s net worth is $180 million.
Jackman earns approximately $15.5 million each year through film deals, royalties, endorsements, and investments. The most shocking fact about his net worth is that in 2012 Jackman was only worth about $50 million. His net worth has grown by more than $100 million in just four years.
It is not likely that Jackman’s net worth will cease to grow in the coming years either. Although 2017 marks his last film as Wolverine, Jackman has a production company that works on films regularly. He will also be able to play roles in other films as they become available. Although it is not likely Jackman will grow his net worth another $100 million in four years, he will not be going broke any time soon.
