Rachel Griffiths is an Australian actress who made her big screen debut in the beloved 1994 film, Muriel’s Wedding.
After an impressive career spanning from stage to screen, and all that lies in the middle, Griffiths has won awards from the Australian Film Institute, the Screen Actors Guild, and the Golden Globe Awards for her astonishing performances throughout the years.
Now as a 56 year old, Griffiths is still going strong and now boasts credits beyond her ability as an actress in front of the screen.
Griffiths has written and directed short films Tulip (1998) and Roundabout (2002), and co-created the political drama Total Control for ABC Australia, which won Best Television series 2019 at the Australian AACTA Awards.
Subsequently, the Melbourne-raised star remains in the prime of thriving stardom overseas and on home turf.
Rachel Griffith’s Net Worth:
As of 2022, Rachel Griffiths has an estimated net worth of $8 million (£6.5 million), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
As she has a pattern of doing, the director continues to use her platform to speak up for issues she is passionate about, such as the decision for the Supreme Court in America to overrule the Roe vs. Wade ruling of 1973.
Her passion for feminist issues can further be seen in her roles and her platforming of women’s stories as a director.
In an interview with Kerry O’Brien on behalf of Griffith University partnered with HOTA, Griffiths spoke about the treatment of women in the film industry:
“I kind of had a deep feeling that there was an aspect of women’s liberation that had not served us, that had just allowed us to be a more easily tradable slash discardable commodity.”
In terms of her new project with ABC and Mint Pictures, Griffiths said: “I’ll be taking ABC’s viewers on a fun, factual, at times surprising and very visual adventure from our beaches to our rivers, across our plains and lakes, up our mountains and down our valleys looking for the very spot where some of our most iconic paintings were made.”
Currently, Rachel Griffiths and her artist husband are located in Sydney in a $2 million designer terrace where they live with their three children, Banjo, Adelaide, and Clementine.Featured Image Credit: Alamy
