Russell Crowe Net Worth: Russell Crowe is an Australia-based New Zealand actor, film producer and musician who has a net worth of $75 million dollars. An actor and musician, Russell Crowe began his career on television, but gained international recognition with his role in the film, "Romper Stomper". He went on to star in such films as "L.A. Confidential", "A Beautiful Mind", and "Gladiator" for which he won an Oscar.
Born Russell Ira Crowe on 7 April 1964, in Wellington, New Zealand, he is today known as Hollywood's A-list actor, even though he started his career as a musician in the early-1980s. Seeing himself as a musician, the 16-year-old Crowe reinvented himself as 'Russ Le Roc', forming a rock group called Roman Antix. But the teenage dream of becoming a rock star took a different turn over the years and he ended up being fully-fledged actor. It was his harsh breakout performance as a racist skinhead in the Australian production of "Romper Stomper" (1992) that let Crowe show his potential as an actor on the rise. On the other side of the Pacific, he presented American audiences with a loud introduction as a violent 1950s police detective in "L.A. Confidential" (1997). Only two years later, Crowe won his first Academy Award nomination with an outstanding portrayal of a tobacco executive who was trapped between coming clean and protecting his family in "The Insider" (1999). However, he left a permanent mark in Hollywood with his turn as a Roman general in "Gladiator" (2000). This role also made him bring home Oscar glory. He has since continued to amaze audiences with his performance as schizophrenic math genius John Nash in "A Beautiful Mind" (2001), following up with his acclaimed roles in "Cinderella Man" (2005) and "3:10 to Yuma" (2007). Crowe reached a personal low point as he got famously arrested for striking a New York hotel doorman with a telephone, resulting in an arrest that shadowed him for years afterward. But his career seemed to go on untouched by such incidents, as Crow gave subsequent sterling performances in "American Gangster" (2007), "State of Play" (2009) and "Robin Hood" (2010). Putting his highly public personal stumbles aside, Crowe is an actor of extraordinary talent and wide acting range capable of delivering highly-acclaimed performances.
