William Hurt net worth: William Hurt is an American stage and film actor who has a net worth of $15 million. William Hurt has earned his net worth through his acting roles in films, television and voice acting in animated films, as well as co-producing the animated film The Legend of Sasquatch. Born in Washington D.C., on March 20th, 1950, Hurt was one of the most distinctive leading men throughout the 1980's. After he got his acting training at the Juilliard School, he first hit the stage and then turned to film. It was in 1980 when Hurt made his feature film debut as a troubled scientist in the science-fiction feature Altered States, which fetched him a Golden Globe nomination for New Star of the Year. He went on to grab audiences' attention opposite Kathleen Turner in the steamy thriller Body Heat (1980) and stand out in the ensemble cast of Lawrence Kasdan's classic drama The Big Chill (1983). More nods from critics and accolades followed for his portrayal of an effeminate gay man in Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985), as well as for his performances in Children of a Lesser God (1986) and Broadcast News (1987). Meanwhile, he could also be seen on stage in Off-Broadway productions, in some of Shakespeare's best plays including Henry V, Fifth of July, Richard II, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. After falling off the Hollywood radar for a time, Hurt recovered with a brief, but Oscar-nominated performance in the 2005 crime drama A History of Violence. While with his turn as a scientist grieving the murder of his wife on the second season of Damages (FX, 2007-2010) and his portrayal of Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson in Too Big to Fail (HBO, 2011), Hurt cemented his reputation as a passionate artist who is more concerned with creating great roles than fascinating the masses.
