Jon Voight net worth: Jon Voight is an American actor who has a net worth of $45 million. Jon Voight earned his net worth thanks to a high successful film and television acting career. He has won several Golden Globe Awards and continues to pursue acting. Voight is also known for having a troubled relationship with his daughter, A-listed Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie. Born Jonathan Vincent "Jon" Voight on December 29, 1938, in Yonkers, New York, Voight discovered his love for acting as a teenager. After a stint on Broadway, this baby-faced and blue-eyed actor made his debut with the 1965 feature movie, Fearless Frank. But it was his portrayal of hustler Joe Buck in the ground-breaking drama, Midnight Cowboy (1969), that fetched him an Oscar nomination and catapulted his career into the big time. Voight's other notable movie appearances include performances in such movies as Hour of the Gun (1967), The Revolutionary (1970), Deliverance (1972) and Out of It (1978). Over the years, he has won one Academy Award out of four nominations, and three Golden Globe Awards out of nine nominations. The Academy Award he had received was for Best Actor for his portrayal of a quadriplegic Vietnam War veteran, alongside Jane Fonda, in the drama-romance Coming Home (1978). Throughout the 1980s, he performed in a string of hit and miss films including in critically-acclaimed action drama Runaway Train (1985). Then, there was a period of "spiritual reawakening," during which he worked on a number of intellectually related but doomed film projects. Once he starred opposite Robert De Niro in the 1995 blockbuster Heat, Voight again got the chance to star in big budget offerings. Thus, Mission: Impossible (1996) and Enemy of the State (1998) regained his status as big-budget star; while Varsity Blues (1999), Ali (2001) and Pearl Harbor (2001) earned him critical acclaim aside from fame. He has also appeared opposite his real life daughter, Angelina Jolie, in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001).
