About Ben Affleck
So in this article we are going to talk about Ben Affleck net worth, which is probably at its all time highest amounting to $75 million. And how did he earn all this money? To answer this question, we have to look at his career right from the start. So Ben landed his first movie role back in 1981. But to be fair, to call it a “role” is a bit of an exaggeration, as in this movie he was just a “Kid in the street”. It was in 1984 when he was given the chance to show his talent in the television series The Voyage in Miami, where he portrayed C. T. Grandville. Although Ben appeared in 13 episodes, he has not gained much recognition until the movie dazed and Confused reached the cinemas. That’s when Ben Affleck net worth growth started to intensify.
Following his performance in Dazed and Confused, Ben has appeared in films Mallrats and Glory Daze, and had a brief role in television show Lifestories: families in Crisis. But it was only in 1997 that this actor has finally got into the centre of public attention. Ironically or not, this recognition he gained was not for his acting skills, but for his work as screenwriter. Together with his old friend and colleague Matt Damon, Affleck wrote a screenplay that was later turned into a movie Good Will Hunting. The movie was an incredible financial success, grossing almost $226 million worldwide with a budget of only $10 million! Even more importantly, it was praised by critics all over the world! Due to the success of Good Will Hunting the two friends received a number of prestigious awards, including Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay, MTV Award nomination for Best Screen Due and nomination for Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. Back then it really looked like Ben Affleck net worth is about to shoot streight to the skies, but life took a slightly different path.
Following the success in 1997, when Affleck was not even 30 years old, his career took a dive. And it was not that the films he has appeared in were not commercially successful (Armageddon and Pearl Harbour did not just „fairly well“, but „awesome“), it is just that they did not help him to earn recognition and respect as a serious actor. Dissapointed in acting, Ben decided to go behind the camera and so far this seems like the greatest decision he could have made. His movie Argo was a great commercial success and received more accolades then anybody could have expected, including Academy Award for Best Picture. So I think Ben Afleck net worth will definitely continue to grow, at least as long as he stayes on the other side of the camera!
