Over the following two years the actor featured in movies Panther (as bodyguard), Dead Presidents (as Skip), Money Talks (as Franklin Hatchett), The Fifth Element (as Ruby Rhod) and Jackie Brown (as Beaumont Livingston). Although each of these movies added to Chris Tucker net worth, none of them has helped him earn critical acclaim. Quite to the contrary, for the performance in Money Talks and The Fifth Element he was nominated for Razzie Award as the Worst New Star.
Despite the fact that his acting skills did not impress the critics (to put it mildly), the audience seemed to love Chris. Tucker’s status in Hollywood continued to grow as he landed a role in arts/action-comedy-adventure (yes, it had it all) movie Rush Hour, where he played alongside the screen legend Jackie Chan. With a budget of $33 million, the movie grossed over $244 million in the box office. And that’s when Chris Tucker net worth started to grow with an impressive speed. Knowing that his performance was one of the keys to the success of the first movie, Turner demanded $20 million to appear in a sequel and the studio fulfilled his requirement. Following this the comedian landed a contract with New Line Cinema, worth $40 million. $25 million of them was his salary for the performance in Rush Hour three. This contract, along with the agreement according to which the studio was supposed to pay him %20 of the gross income of Rush Hour 3, made Tucker the highest played actor in Hollywood.
Unfortunately, his success did not last for long. Despite the great expectations associated with Rush Hour 3, the movie was not particularly profitable – it grossed $255,045,928 worldwide. This might seem as a pretty solid sum, but you must keep in mind that the movie has cost $140 million to make! This failure marked the beginning of Chris’ financial decay. Due to his problems with IRC by the end of 2012 Christ Tucker net worth was actually negative, he had $11,5 million in debt!
