It’s yet another complex movie from the Woodman. Woody Allen remains one of the most popular, respected and prolific film makers in all of American cinema history. Though a highly visible artist in Hollywood, his movies are more akin to rebellious indy fare or arthouse offerings. To consider that he is still going strong at the advanced age of 77 is inspiring to us all. This drama, “Blue Jasmine”, stars Cate Blanchett (The Hobbit), Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Louis C.K. (Louie) and Andrew Dice Clay.
She’s an Australian actress, but her popularity is definitely global. In small, early roles like in “The Talented Mr. Ripley”, Blanchett proved she could do a whole lot with a little material. Opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Blanchett snagged the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her supporting role of Katherine Hepburn in Martin Scorcese’s biopic on Howard Hughes, “The Aviator”. Blanchett plays an elf Queen, Galadriel, in “The Hobbit’, and some of the mystical energy certainly rubbed off into her bank account. She’s worth an estimated and rather magical $45 million dollars.
He’s one of the most respected and prolific American film makers in history. Woody Allen started his professional life as a stand-up comic, a TV writer and essayist and those professions have always served him well in making his films. With original classics like “Annie Hall”, “Manhattan” and “Sleeper” joining his more modern entries like “Hannah And Her Sisters” and “Vicky, Cristina Barcelona”, Allen just keeps producing fantastically engaging movies to the delight of both fans and critics. Allen has a net worth of $65 million dollars.
Andrew Dice Clay
He ruled the 1980’s in raunchy stand-up comedy and starred in vehicles like “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane”, unfortunately, the movie didn’t fare too well at the box office or with critics. Dice Clay has had his career ups and downs, he was even given a lifetime ban by MTV, which was finally lifted in 2011. No matter his bawdy manner, he’s always dependable for a wild one liner and he continues to bring in fans in his stand-up shows. Andrew Dice Clay has an estimated net worth of $1 million dollars.
He’s the comic with the initials for a last name. On his acclaimed Comedy Central TV show, “Louie”, he makes us laugh and still want more. He not only created the laugh fest, but he also writes, directs and even edits the show. His first language his Spanish – he grew up in Mexico, then moved to the USA at the age of 7. Louis CK has an estimated net worth of $8.5 million dollars.
He was the leading man of movies, until he reinvented himself as one of the sharpest and wittiest comic actors around. On the Tina Fey created sitcom, ’30 Rock’, Baldwin proved he could be a chameleon performer, and mine laughs from his wildly egotistical character. Baldwin was the leading man in blockbusters like “The Hunt For Red October”, “The Shadow” and “The Getaway”, just to name a few. Baldwin has an estimated net worth of $65 million dollars.
