In a time when an increasing number of Hollywood actors are moving towards superhero series and continually playing the same role, Hanks has maintained the approach of starring in stand-alone great movies. With the notable exception of Toy Story, but I think that’s probably a fair decision.
With Tom Hanks once again in the spotlight after such a long and successful career many are wondering…how much is the star worth?
Tom Hanks has a net worth of $400 million, according to celebritynetworth.com. His films have grossed a combined $10 billion at the box office worldwide.
For his performance in Forrest Gump Hanks made about $70 million, equivalent to around $120 million today. These major earnings were underpinned by his decision to exchange his salary for ‘first dollar’ backend points whereby he didn’t earn any money upfront for the role but instead took a percentage of the film’s $680 million worldwide box office earnings.
Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson’s real estate portfolio is estimated at $150 million, this includes a ski chalet in Sun Valley, Idaho.
