About Eric Bana
As for the day, Eric Bana net worth amounts to $35 million. This may be more than you have expected, but here is the thing: even though during his career Eric Bana has gained only 28 acting credits, some of his roles have been really significant and long-living. And like in any other job, in movie industry you do not have to work hard to succeed, you just have to work smart. As long as we are talking about work on television and films, “working smart” means being capable of recognising the scenario’s with potential, choosing the right roles and sticking to them. But before we get to generalizations and morals, let’s take a closer look at the sources of Eric Bana net worth and his life in general.
Most actors claim that shooting movies was their greatest dream all the way long. I don’t know whether this is actually true for most of them, or they just think that’s what the audience wants to hear, but I have actually heard this thousands of times. However, this is not the case with Eric. The actor is quoted saying: „I wanted to be a mechanic. When I was 14, I wanted to quit school and go work on my car. But my dad said, “Son, you shouldn’t do that. You should stay in school until your education is finished, and when you’re done, don’t make your hobby your job”. Isn‘t this a story that is worth telling? I mean I am sure there are plenty of people who wanted to be Hollywood stars and ended up working as mechanics, cashiers or waiting tables, but not the other way around… Anyway, now that Eric Bana net worth amounts to millions of dollars and his career is flourishing, I am pretty sure he does not cry himself to sleep at night, thinking about this scattered dream.
Now let‘s cut to the chase and talk about the path that led Eric to international success. The actor has spent about ten years filming for various Australian (that‘s where he is from) television shows, series and soap operas: during the 1990s he has filmed for Full Frontal, The Eric Bana Show Live, All Saints and Something in the Air. In the year 2000 he earned critical acclaim for the portrayal of Chopper Read. The role on the eponymous film (Chopper) has garnered him three prestigious awards: AACTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Film Critics Circle of Australia Award for Best Actor and Inside Film Award for Best Actor. Since then the actor has featured on variety of memorable American movies, including Black Hawk Dawn , Hulk, Lone survivor, Romulus, My Father and Star Track. Each of them has contributed to the overall Eric Bana net worth.
