About Dustin Hoffman
As for the day Dustin Hoffman net worth is huge and there can be no denying on this fact. The man has some $50 million dollars in his disposal and I don‘t think this is the end: already well into his seventies, his actor is still charming and still active, so I think Dustin Hoffman net worth can still be expected to grow. But did you know that the man who could easily enjoy the same kind of luxury that surrounds Saudi princes used to live below the official American poverty line until he was 31 years old? I bet you did not… So let‘s take some time to find out how Hoffman stopped being poor and started being awesome (just kidding, I bet he was born awesome)!
Dustin was born in Los Angeles, right at the heart of the movie industry. Before switching careers and becoming a furniture salesman his father has worked as a prop supervisor (set decorator) at Columbia Pictures. So you might think there is some classic (or should I say cliché) story behind his career choice: the boy visits his father at work, falls in love with movies and decides to dedicate his whole life for motion pictures. However, it was not quite like that. Dustin is quote saying: „I got into acting so that I could meet girls. Pretty girls came later. First, I wanted to start off with someone with two legs, who’d smile at me and look soft.“ This may not sound very sophisticated, but you have to give the man a credit for being honest and straightforward. Now when you know why did he decide to become an actor, let‘s take a closer look at his professional career
Hoffman made his movie debut in 1967, appearing on The Tiger makes Out and the same year he starred on a comedy-drama The Graduate. The movie was a huge commercial success, grossing $104 million on a budget of $3 million and added a solid sum to Dustin Hoffman net worth. But even more importantly, it brought him a huge critical success. For the portrayal of Benjamin “Ben” Braddock the actor received BAFTA Award for Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Roles and Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year – Actor. Over the following decades the millionaire we are speaking about has appeared on variety of prominent movies, including Midnight Cowboy, All the President’s Men, Hook, Outbreak, Marathon Man, Kramer vs. Kramer, Tootsie, Rain Man, and Little Fockers. Each of these movies has contributed to the growth of the overall Dustin Hoffman net worth and garnered him variety of prestigious accolades, including Academy Award for Best Actor for the portrayal of Ted Kramer
