About Chris Klein
As for the day, Chris Klein net worth is probably at its all time lowest. The former teenager super-star has only $1.5 million dollars in his disposal. I know that the word “only” seems a bit inadequate when it is used next to “$1,5 million”, but as I have already mentioned, there was a time when the whole America was absolutely fascinated by this young actor and he was promised an amazing career in Hollywood. Now let’s be honest – $1.5 million does not speak about the amazing career… In-demand Hollywood actors, like Christian Bale, wouldn’t even take up a single leading role for this kind of money! So why 15 years after he rose to the fame Chris Klein net worth remains so low? What happened to his professional career? What did he do wrong? We will try to answer these questions a bit later, but now let’s look at the glorious beginning of his career.
Chris made his movie debut in 1999, appearing in what became a successful comedy film Election. Although Chris was not among the leading actors, the movie gave him some spotlight. The same year the actor ascended to stardom with another comedy film, American Pie. Following this he has featured in the sequels of the movie and kept getting a steady flow of roles in other films. In the year 2000 the actor has also started dating an actress Katie Holmes, who later became his fiancée and the wife… of Tom Cruise. Anyway, this was the time when Chris Klein net worth was growing.
However, at a certain point Chris’ career took a dive. He still kept getting some roles, but they were all in box-office disappointments, such as Rollerball and American Dreamz. The first of these movies was built on an impressive budget of $70 million and grossed mare $25 million at the box office. Moreover, the movie was crushed to the floor by critics, with Time Out writing that the film is “a checklist shaped by a 15-year-old mallrat: thrashing metal track, skateboards, motorbikes, cracked heads and Rebecca Romijn with her top off”. American Dreamz was somewhat less of a failure, grossing $16 million on a budget of $17 million and receiving 41% of positive reviews according to Rotten Tomatoes, but it still was a disappointment. I would not say that the unfortunate movies, like the two I have just mentioned, have completely ruined Chris‘ career, but it is pretty clear that he is on the rough path… Only time can tell, if he will ever manage to recover his career and if Chris Klein net worth will start growing again. But as for the day, the picture looks pretty sad… The last movie with Klein in it has premiered in 2012!
