As for the day, Christopher Walken net worth is estimated at $30 million and this makes him one of the wealthiest actors in the U.S. However, this fortune does not seem that impressive when you know that during his career, which now spans over 6 decades, Christopher has earned more than 100 acting credits. Some of his roles were rather insignificant, the others were in movies and shows as famous as The Deer Hunter, Annie Hall, The Dogs of War, The Prophecy trilogy, Brainstorm, A View to a Kill, True Romance, The Dead Zone, Catch Me If You Can, Pulp Fiction and Seven Psychopaths.

Before I finish this article, I would like you to know one more thing. In one of his interviews Christopher has said: „I’ve enjoyed making movies for lots of different reasons. Sometimes, it was the other people. Sometimes, it was the fact that I was really good in it. Sometimes, it was the location. Sometimes, it was the paycheck. Sometimes, it can be lots of different things, or a lot of those things“. So as you can see from these words, movies did much more than increase Christopher Walken net worth: they gave him plenty of valuable acquaintances and opportunities to see the world, self-confidence and the feeling of accomplishment, as well as variety of other gifts.
