In 1962, while starring in the Broadway show titled I Can Get it For You Wholesale, the actor met the singer and songwriter, author, actress, film producer, and director Barbara Streisand. The two fell in love and got married the following year. Unfortunately, their marriage was not meant to last. It seems like for the two extremely creative and vivid personalities, there just wasn’t enough space under the same roof. The life in the family has been so full of tension and conflicts, Gould has famously compared it to the “bed of lava”. In one of his interviews Gould has said: “The happiest memories I have of Barbra are when we were living together before we were married.” So Elliott and Barbara did not find happiness in marriage and got divorced in 1971, when their son Jason Gould (now also an actor) was just 5 years old.
Speaking about his career in motion pictures, Gould made his debut appearing as Jester on television movie Once Upon a Mattress. This was in 1964, when Elliott was already married to Barbara. Four years later he featured in musical comedy film The Night They Raided Minsky’s. A real breakthrough in Gould’s career came up in 1969, as his movie Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice reached the cinemas. For the portrayal of Paul Mazursky in this comedy-drama film the actor received four prestigious nominations: Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Laurel Awards for Mal New Face and New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actor. If he had played his cards right, following this breakthrough Elliott Gould net worth could have jumped to the sky. However, the actor made some serious mistakes: he turned down some good roles and started using drugs. Fortunately for him, eventually Gould has managed to pull himself together and reclaimed his status in Hollywood. This is why today Elliott Gould net worth amounts to $10 million.
