Anthony Anderson Net Worth is $25 Million (as of 2020)
Anthony is famously quoted saying „I ain’t got nothing. I’ve got this watch, and these shoes, and that’s about it“. However, you should not believe this line. In reality, Anthony Anderson net worth amounts to $18 million. Yes, both his shoes and watch would have to be made out of diamonds to cost this kind of money and I don‘t think the shoes would be very comfy (although Cinderella would have more say on it). So how did Anthony earn all this money?

First and foremost, Anthony Anderson net worth comes from acting. I think it was more than once that this star has actually stressed that his main job is acting. To put it in his own words: „I’m not a comedian. I’m an actor who just happens to be funny on occasion.“. However, Anthony has admitted that comedy is his „ second nature“. I think this talent for stand up comedy (or at least a great sense of humour) runs in Andersons‘ family, because the actor is quoted saying: „I realized my family was funny, because nobody ever wanted to leave our house.“ After hearing this, I have started feeling really sorry I was not born next door from their family house… But enough about Anthony‘s childhood and the proportions of „comedian“ and „actor“ in his personality. It is enough to say that he is equally talented in both of these fields. Let‘s tackle our main question: how did he manage to turn his talents into cash?
Here, again, I will have to use his own words (or to be more particular, the advise he gave for somebody): “Be ready for when your time comes, you will have that window of opportunity, so seize the moment and capitalise on it.“ And this is exactly what Anthony did in his life. In 1996 he saw the chance to land a role on television series Hang Time and squeezed it. That‘s when Anthony Anderson net worth started to grow. Some three years later he landed his first movie role on Liberty Heights. Following this debut the actor went on to appear on variety of TV shows, such as K-Ville, The Shield and Law & Order, and movies, including Transformers, Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London, Scream 4, Kangaroo Jack. and The Departed. Before appearing on the latest of these films, the actor has famously said: „Leo couldn’t deliver Mr. Martin Scorsese his Oscar with ‘The Aviator’, but I will go on record to say I will do so in ‘The Departed’.“ Not quite surprisingly, he did not succeed in keeping this promise. But none the less, most people who have seen the film would agree that his performance as Troopeer Brown was good (although brief) and this role sure did add some cash to Anthony Anderson net worth.
