Charles Bronson Net Worth is $65 Million (at death)
It has been more than ten years since the actor we are going to talk about made his final great escape to the beyond. By then Charles Bronson net worth amounted $12.5 million. He has earned the status of a movie star appearing in Once Upon a Time in the West, The Dirty Dozen, The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape, The Mechanic, Rider on the Rain, and Death Wish. Each of these movies is responsible not only for his long-lasting fame, but also for a considerable part of the overall Charles Bronson net worth.

The typical role offered for the actor was that of the gunfighter, police officer or vigilante. In every case, plotlines were mostly revenge-oriented. One of the possible explanations, why was it nearly always like that, might be found in Charles’ own words. The actor is quoted saying: “I don’t look like someone who leans on a mantelpiece with a cocktail in my hand, you know.” “I look like the kind of guy who has a bottle of beer in my hand.”, And he was right. Whether on screen or speaking in public, Bronson has always seemed like a simple man from the West, the man of his word, whether the “word” was “I will love you forever” or “I will not rest until you are dead”. And this wasn’t just some superficial impression he gave to people.
For example, Michael Winner, a movie maker with whom Charles has worked for a long time, has recently told a story. He said that back when he was young, he dated Jill Ireland who later became Bronson’s wife. The two have actually slept together, but Jill has lied to her husband that they were just friends and Michael agreed to help her keep a secret without even arguing, because he knew that if Charles has heart about this, he would probably get violent. Now when Michael told this story both Jill and Charles were long gone, so we have nobody to confirm or deny his words. But if it is true (and I believe it), this is a bit of a story that speaks about passionate and wild nature. This nature was visible in his movies and perhaps it is one of the reasons why Charles Bronson net worth eventually reached $12.5 million.
Perhaps he was a cold-looking and somewhat stark person, but there were at least few people he loved more than anything in the world: his wife Jill and his kids. Jill died from breast cancer in 1990. He supported her till the last day and it is petty that the actor did not have anybody so close later in his life, when he was battling Alzheimer. I would not trade my health for Charles Bronson net worth. And would you?
