Dustin Hoffman Net Worth: Dustin Hoffman is an American actor who has a net worth of $50 million dollars. Dustin Hoffman was born on August 8, 1937 in Los Angeles, California. His film, television and theater credits are many. He is perhaps best known for his widely acclaimed role in the '60s as college graduate Benjamin Braddock, who is seduced by the wife of his father's business associate. For his role in the Graduate, Hoffman received an Academy Award nomination. His next notable role was a huge departure from his 'Graduate' character when he joined the cast of Midnight Cowboy. While Hoffman was not the first choice (by far) for the role of Enrico Salvatore "Ratso" Rizzo in Midnight Cowboy, his performance garnered him an Oscar nomination and the film won the Best Picture. In 1994, the film was deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. Over the next few years and into the '80s, he would make ten more notable films and receive more award nominations, including Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) and Rain Main (1988). Hoffman's acting career began at age 19 when he dropped out of college to pursue the stage at the Pasadena Playhouse. There he befriended another young actor, Gene Hackman. The two aspiring actors eventually moved to New York City together, looking for work in television and in off-Broadway plays. An unconventional-looking actor for the time period, Hoffman had difficulty getting roles in an industry primarily looking for pretty faces. To make ends meet, he took got odd jobs and the occasional bit role to pay the bills. He later recounted, "I lived below the official American poverty line until I was 31."
