About Andrew McCarthy
As for the day, Andrew McCarthy net worth is estimated at $10 million dollars and it is constantly growing. You might be wondering how he managed to earn all this money, because during the last couple decades we did not see him appearing in that many movies or shows. But the important thing to understand is that acting is not the only, and not even necessarily the most important source of Andrew McCarthy net worth. He is engaged in nearly all the stages that constitutes the process of the production and always thinks strategically. McCarthy is quote saying: „In doing everything, from coming up with the ideas and putting them on paper till doing the final edits, you are always thinking the next three steps, you’re always thinking what next, what next, what next?“. This eagerness to work, to try different jobs, to learn everything there is to know about making the movies and television series, as well as his ability to think three steps in advance – all of these personal qualities have helped Chris building his career. But how did it all start?
Andrew McCarthy net worth has started to grow in the early 1980. It was due to both his talent an the-boy-next-door looks that Andrew was offered a steady flow of roles almost immediately after entering the business, without having to struggle for recognition for years, like so many other actors. His movie debut was in 1983‘s theatrical drama Class. The movie did on receive many positive reviews from critics, but it helped Andrew launch his professional career (by the way, Class was also a ebut for such famed actors as John Cusack, Virginia Madsen, Lolita Davidovich, and Alan Ruck). A real breakthrough in McCarthy‘s career came up in 1985, when he appeared on American coming-of-age movie St. Elmo‘s Fire. The movie received very mixed reviews from critics, with David Danby writing that “St. Elmo’s Fire isn’t drama, it’s gossip, and peculiarly early-adolescent gossip— a movie designed to be picked apart on the telephone. The turbidly self-important treatment of these vacuous college graduates, each one a ‘type’, is like a TV sitcom without jokes“. However, the other 14 out of 30 other critics described the movie as worth attention and it was a commercial success.
Andrew‘s next big role was on a romantic comedy fantasy film Mannequin. Built on the budget of $6million, it grossed nearly $43 million in the box office. Not only the movie was successful commercially, it has also garnered him a „Best Actor“ award at Fantafestival. Even though on the day of release the critics were not as positive as the general audience (Mannequin is currently given 22% „rotten“ rating on Rotten Tomatoes) it has became a real cult classic an still has a small but dedicated base of fans and followers. Needless to say, it has aded some cash to Andrew McCarthy net worth too.
