Christopher Meloni Net Worth is $30 Million (as of 2020)
As for the day, Christopher Meloni net worth amounts to $30 million and here is a funny fact, that I think perfectly describes the level of luxury he can afford: Meloni has a 60th floor apartment in New York, which he has recently been trying to sell; as the actor was unable to find a buyer, he ended up renting the apartment to Saudi prince. So yeah, Christopher shares the same level of luxury with Saudi nobility. Not bad, huh? Now let‘s look at his Professional career and see how Christopher Meloni net worth got so incredibly huge.

Christopher started his acting career in the late 1980s, appearing on television series 1st & Ten. As this show ended, he went on to play notable roles on shows The Fanelli Boys, Dinosaurs, Misery Loves Company, NYPD Blue and Leaving L.A. In 1998 he was cast for one of the leading roles on Oz. The actor has appeared on 38 episodes over the period of 5 years. Surely, each of these episodes has contributed to the growth of Christopher Meloni net worth, but this is not the only reason why I would like to talk about this show a little bit more. In 1999 at the awards dinner for GLAAD Christopher publically kissed his co-star on Oz, Lee Tergensen. Even though at that time the actor was married to production designer Sherman Melon, this has led to some speculations that he is gay or at least bisexual. But the truth is, by kissing each other Lee and Christopher have been trying to Express their support of LGBT rights. Meloni was not mad about the gossip and when asked isn‘t he already sick about talking about his colleague, came up with a funny comparison: “Talking about Lee is like eating a big fat chocolate sundae. I know it’s bad for me, but I can’t help myself. I catch myself doing it all the time, or dreaming about it. I’m trying to quit cause it’s ruining my girlish figure and I can’t fit into any of my clothes the way I used to…”
In 1999, while still working on Oz, Christopher has landed one of the leading roles on yet another television series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The actor has remained on this show right until 2011 and during this period appeared on 272 episodes of it. Despite being busy working on television, Meloni has also managed to establish himself as a talented movie actor. His most prominent roles were in Man of Steel, Wet Hot American Summer, 12 Monkeys, Runaway Bride and 42. The salary for each of them played a significant role in boosting Christopher Meloni net worth.
