About Burt Reynolds
Although some websites still claim that Burt Reynolds net worth amounts to $185, our sources suggest that he barely has more than $12 million dollars left. This seems rather strange, having in mind that for quite a long time Burt was among the highest paid actors in Hollywood. In fact he still holds the record for the longest period at No. 1 spot on the box office! Due to the incredible success of “Smokey and the Bandit,”, “Starting Over”, “Cannonball Run.” and some of his other movies Reynolds has spent 5 years in this position. Having in mind that Burt‘s presence practically guaranteed the success for the movie and profits for the studio, it does not seem surprising that his salary amounted to millions of dollars!
During his career, which started with his appearance on Riverboat in 1959, the actor has featured in tens of movies, each of them boosting Burt Reynolds net worth. His first critically acclaimed role was in the film The Longest Yard, for which he was nominated for Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. But the recognition he gained for this later film did not even compare to the amount of applauses and accolades Reynolds 1997‘s performance in Boogie Nights has deserved. The role of Jack Horner has garnered him at least 9 prestigious awards, including Chicago Film Critics Association Award for Best Supporting Actor, Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Association Award for Best Supporting Actor, National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actor New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actor.
Now you might be under impression that critics have always loved this actor, but this hardly could be any further from truth. Reynolds was nominated for Golden Raspberry (or Razzie) awards as the worst actor more than once, including for his roles in Rent-a-Cop, Switching Channels, Cop and a Half, Driven, The Longest Yard (the version produced in 2005), In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale and most recently – Deal. The thing is that as long as Reynolds has managed to draw the audience into the cinemas film studios did not care about the fact that this actor is not exactly praised by critics. But this is no longer the case and hence Burt Reynolds net worth is constantly decreasing. In fact, it has been a while since he had a descent role in film or on television. As far as we know, since 2012 he has made only 3 television appearance and two of these times he played himself.
The problem is that Burt is absolutely used to living as a millionaire and continues to waste money even now, when his income has decreased dramatically. I guess if nothing changes, soon Burt Reynolds net worth will be equal to zero…
