“The Monuments Men” tells the story of a gang of veteran art experts on a mission to reclaim artwork stolen by the Nazis. George Clooney leads a stellar cast of big stars like Bill Murray (Lost In Translation), Cate Blanchett (Lord of the Rings), Matt Damon (The Bourne Identity) and John Goodman (Monsters Inc.). What is the net worth of these big Hollywood stars?
He first burst upon the entertainment landscape on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” as one of the sketch players that always delivered laughs. From there, he transitioned into movies like “Caddyshack” with the legendary Rodney Dangerfield, “Meatballs” and the hilarious military romp, “Stripes”, co-starring Harold Ramis, who he also co-starred with in “Ghostbusters”. Murray has become a real versatile performer at home both in comedy and drama, and he even provided the voice of fat cat Garfield in the Garfield films. According to Murray, he ‘accidentally’ agreed to voice the beloved comic strip, but regrets it. He has an estimated net worth of $120 million.
He comes from a high profile entertainment clan. His aunt was Rosemary Clooney, an iconic singer and actress from the Golden Age of Hollywood. These days, there aren’t many stars bigger, more talked about in the press or more purely iconic than George Clooney. He takes on a wide range of diverse roles in movies like the military romp of “The Men Who Stares At Goats” or the politically tinged drama “Goodnight, and Good Luck”, and in Oceans Eleven, he’s Danny Ocean, leader of the gang of starlet rascals who assemble as a fortune swiping team. Clooney doesn’t need much financial advice these days, as he boasts an estimated net worth of $180 million dollars.
She’s an Australian actress, but her popularity has definitely become global. In small, early, yet important roles like in “The Talented Mr. Ripley”, Blanchett proved to us she could do a whole lot with a little material. Opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Blanchett snagged the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her supporting role playing 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.
Matt Damon has definitely earned his respected place as an A list Hollywood actor among both his peers and fans. Once, he was more known as being one half of the duo of buddy Ben Affleck (who’s now the new Batman or Batfleck!) – at least professionally – but these days, he’s an established independent force as a highly in demand actor. In diverse roles, he shows his talent; whether it’s playing the deranged title role in the gripping, “The Talented Mr. Ripley”, or acting as a more raw, darker James Bond like master spy in the big box office Bourne films where he plays the enigmatic agent Jason Bourne. Damon has an ongoing comedy connection to Jimmy Kimmel, so we know he has a sense of humor. Matt Damon has an estimated net worth of $65 million dollars.
He was the blue collar, loudly bellowing partner of the even louder Roseanne, on the classic TV sitcom, “Roseanne”, playing the construction worker Dan Conner and we all took notice of his larger than life acting talent. The small screen couldn’t contain this funny man’s mirth and girth for long, or his big drama instincts, and many big movies followed soon after. From the silliness of “King Ralph” to the current, “Hangover III”, Goodman can master any character in any situation. John Goodman has an estimated net worth of $65 million dollars.
