About Eric Roberts
As for the day, Eric Roberts net worth is estimated at 48 million, so yes, he is doing pretty good (to say the least). However, the actor is only 1/5 as rich his sister Julia Roberts, who currently has some $140 million in her disposal. During her career, which started din 1987, the actress has appeared in some of the most prominent movies we have ever seen, including My Best Friend’s Wedding, Notting Hill, Conspiracy Theory, Ocean‘s Eleven and Ocean‘s Twelve, Charlie Wilson’s War, Eat Pray Love and Mirror Mirror. Most importantly, Julia has received an Academy Award for the Best actress for the role on Erin Brockovich. And that was after she has won a couple of Golden Globes and was nominated for Oscars for the performance in Steel Magnolias back in the late 1980s! So I guess there is a good reason why in comparison to the fortunes of his sister, Eric Roberts net worth seems quite modest – he is just less talented than his younger sibling. On the other hand, Eric has been by far more successful than the other one of his „little sisters“, who chose an acting carrier – Lisa Roberts Gillan (she has played Queen‘s reflection in Julia‘s Mirror Mirror).
But enough about the fortunes of his family, let‘s talk about the sources of Eric Roberts net worth and his career and life in general. When the future millionaire was still a teenager his parents got divorced. Following this, his mother took her two young daughters, Julia and Lisa, and moved to another state, leaving her son with her husband. Eric‘s father died in 1977, when he was only 21 years old. The same year the actor ascended to stardom with television series Another World. The following year has been even more successful to the young actor, as he landed a leading role on King of Gypsies. The performance on this film has garnered him a nomination for Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture Acting Debut and helped to speed up the growth of Eric Roberts net worth. His next big movie was Star 80. Even though the film grossed only $6.5 million on a budget of $12 million and received a mixed reception upon release, it was generally agreed that the performance by Eric Roberts was the greatest thing it had to offer. In this movie the actor has portrayed Paul Snider, the estranged husband and the murderer of Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten.
Eric‘s other prominent performances were in the movie Runaway Train (for which he was nominated for Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor), miniseries In Cold Blood and television series Less than Perfect. Not only this show has increased Eric Roberts net worth, it has also garnered him a Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actor .
