Bruce Dern Net Worth is $20 Million (as of 2019)
Internet is where you can find the most useful factual information and the most ridiculous rumours in the world. So don’t be surprised if you find the article which suggests that Bruce Dern net worth already amounts to $46 million, that he has just entered the lists of highest-paid actors in the world and that part of his fortune comes from lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics, as well as restaurant chain “Fat Dern Burger” (yup, you there are articles like this). Just know that none of this is actually true. As for the day, Bruce Dern net worth is estimated at $10 million dollars. And how did he earn all this money?

Well, during his lifetime Bruce has appeared in more than 80 films. This might seem unrealistic, but you should keep in mind that the actor is already 78 years old. Most of the actors that Bruce has met when starting his career are no longer engaging in movies and he speaks about them with great respect, as well as nostalgia: „The people I worked with were bigger than life. Once you put them on the screen, they were huge.“ And when exactly Bruce started his career? The future millionaire made his movie debut in 1960, appearing on Wild River and through the 1980s appeared in 18 more movies (if I haven’t missed anything), including Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte, The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, Support Your Local Sheriff! and They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?. However, it was not until the 1970s that Dern has earned some critical recognition and started getting more important roles. In 1971 he received National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actor for the part in Drive, He Said. Once while referring to this period in his life, Dern said: „When I was starting to get noticed as an actor in the 1970s for something other than the third cowboy on the right who ended up dying in every movie or episode…“ . And yes, this sentence pretty much summarises his early career.
But as I said, by the early 1970 Bruce Dern net worth was already growing with a considerable speed, as he gained popular and critical acclaim. Over the following decades Bruce has appeared in some of the most influential movies we know and worked with such legends as Alfred Hitchcock (which, by the way, he described as „the best director I have ever worked with“). You might think that now, already well into his 70s, Bruce has stopped acting, but this is far from true. Just a year ago he appeared in Nebraska and garnered an incredible amount of awards (including Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award for Best Actor). So Bruce Dern net worth can still be expected to grow!
