Armie Hammer Net Worth is $16 Million (as of 2020)
You may have heard gossips that Armie Hammer net worth amounts to $200 million and if you did, you must have been quite shocked: how in the world this 27-year old actor has managed to earn such a fortune?! Well he didn’t… And he does not have an access to this kind of money. 200 000 is the number that describes the fortunes of Armie’s great-grandfather Armand Hammer by the time of his death in 1990. The grandpa gained his fortunes from oil company Occidental Petroleum (by the way, in addition to founding this company he has also founded a communist party in New York…). After his death part of the inheritance landed in the hands of Armie‘s family, but that‘s pretty much all.

Now as about the personal Armie Hammer net worth, it is estimated at $12 million dollars. The main source of this fortune is Armie’s acting career. And how did the great-grandson of oil tycoon and the son of successful businessman Michael Armand Hammer ended up being an actor? Well apparently it all happened because of the dream that Armie had when he was just an 11-year-old. Many years have passed since that fatal night and the actor has troubles trying to remember what exactly the dream was about: maybe he was a kid in Home Alone movie… but then again, what the BB gun was doing in his hand? Anyway, Hammer says: ”it was like a vision. When I woke up, I knew. The next morning I sat down with my parents and told them, ‘I’m supposed to be an actor.”’
At first his parents thought that this is just a joke or a childish dream, a phase that he is going through, and laughed. But when their oldest son dropped out of school to pursue acting career full time, things no longer seemed funny. The Hammers (well, except for Armie himself) were concerned that the teenager will ruin the family image and his own life. And as most parents would do to affect their kid‘s behavior, they have threatened to cut him off. And what did Armie do in this situation? „I signed up at UCLA Extension but never showed up for class. I played the game, but I needed to do my own thing.“ – the actor said for Entertainment Weekly. Now that Armie Hammer net worth amounts to $12 million, I have a feeling that his parents are no longer mad about their boy‘s disobedience.
Armie started his acting career appearing on Arrested Development, Veronica Mars and Desperate Housewives. He later gained recognition for the performance in movies Social Network, J. Edgar and The Lone Ranger. These are the main sources of Armie Hammer net worth!
