Dennis Hopper Net Worth: Dennis Hopper was an American actor, filmmaker and artist who had a net worth of $40 million dollars. Born in Dodge City, Kansas, in 1936, Dennis Hopper moved to Kansas City after World War II until his family packed up and headed to San Diego. He began studying at the Old Globe Theatre and later the Actors Studio and fell in love with William Shakespeare's work. He debuted on the big screen alongside James Dean in 1955's "Rebel Without a Cause" and later "Giant". His first starring role came in 1961's thriller "Night Tide". After a dispute on the set of "From Hell to Texas", Hopper had a hard time finding work and later said John Wayne saved his acting career by hiring him for "The Sons of Katie Elder" in 1965. He starred in "True Grit" and "Easy Rider" in the late '60s. During the next decade, he began taking work in low budget, foreign films before starring in "Apocalypse Now". Hopper would later reveal that he became addicted to cocaine during this period, sometimes taking about three grams a day. Soon, he disappeared into the Mexican desert on a substance high and laid in a coffin with 17 sticks of dynamite. Not long after that, Hopper checked into rehab in 1983. Three years later, he appeared in "Blue Velvet" and then earned an Academy Award nod for "Hoosiers". After directing "Colors", he received an Emmy nomination for "Paris Trout" and "Doublecrossed". Other TV and film credits include "24", "Gunsmoke", "Bonanza", "Petticoat Junction", "Entourage", "Search and Destroy", "Land of the Dead" and "An American Carol". When not acting, Hopper was an active painter and photographer featured in "Better Homes and Gardens". His work was displayed in exhibits in places such as Washington, D.C., Minneapolis, Amsterdam, Vienna and Paris. Hopper was married five times, including a two-week union to Michelle Phillips. He died on May 29, 2010, from prostate cancer. Two months before he passed, he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame alongside friends Jack Nicholson and Viggo Mortensen.
