Taylor Hackford Net Worth: Taylor Hackford is an American film actor who has a net worth of $20 million dollars. Taylor Hackford was born December 31, 1941 in Santa Barbara, California. He is perhaps as well-known for being the husband of actress Helen Mirren as he is for his acting credits. Hackford met Mirren when he was directing her in White Nights, although their first meeting did not go well. Hackford had kept Mirren waiting to audition for White Nights and she was icy. Hackford and Mirren wed in 1997 after 12 years together, though as a young woman Mirren had vowed never to marry. His initial passions lay with international relations, which he studied while pursuing a degree in pre-law at the University of Southern California. After graduation in 1968, he headed to Bolivia as part of the Peace Corps, where he began experimenting with a Super-8 camera in his spare time, documenting the world around him. He abandoned law in favor of a film degree from USC's School of Cinema then took a job in the mailroom at the Los Angeles public television station KCET-TV. The position served as a training ground for the aspiring director, who quickly moved up to the station's cultural programming department where he was among the first in the country to present uninterrupted broadcasts of musical performances from the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Cat Stevens and Leon Russell. From there he worked as an investigative reporter and earned two Emmys and an Associated Press Award. He graduated to film documentaries in 1973 and was soon winning Oscars and racking up the hits. His film An Officer and a Gentleman (1982) came close to having a different ending when actor Richard Gere protested to the ending, feeling it was too sentimental. Hackford stuck with the sentimental ending and proved his theory right when even Gere said that (when paired with the music soundtrack) it gave him chills. In a 2005 interview, Hackford confirmed that he never watched his own films. On July 25, 2009, Hackford was elected President of the Directors Guild of America and re-elected to a second, two-year term on June 25, 2011.
