Cameron Crowe Net Worth
Cameron Crowe Net Worth and salary: Cameron Crowe is an American film director, producer and screenwriter who has a net worth of $45 million. He is most widely recognized for his films, "Fast Times at Ridgemont High", "Say Anything", "Singles", and the Oscar-winning films, "Jerry Maguire and "Almost Famous". He is also the author of two books, and writes for Rolling Stone Magazine on a regular basis. Born Cameron Bruce Crowe on July 13, 1957, in Palm Springs, California, he is now recognized as one of the most notable directors in Hollywood. But before starting out in the movie industry, Crowe was the youngest contributing writer in the history of Rolling Stone magazine, for which he still often writes. After Rolling Stone left the West Coast for New York, Crowe stayed put and penned a book about his undercover high school experiences that was later translated on the big screen as the seminal teenage comedy, "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" (1982), for which he wrote the script. This early success was followed up with his feature debut as a director with "Say Anything" (1989), an unlikely mature and insightful teenage comedy that stood apart and atop from all the others in the genre. In the 1990s, Crowe went on to create critically and commercially hit movies like "Singles" (1992) and "Jerry Maguire" (1996), the latter even boasted one of Tom Cruise's best performances and inducted the catchphrase "Show me the money!" into the cultural lexicon. "Almost Famous" (2000), which told the story of a traveling music journalist, was just another feature that enjoyed great critical praise and fetched him an Academy Award for his screenplay. Although his efforts like "Vanilla Sky" (2001) and "Elizabethtown" (2005) kept him popular among the New Age-y, Crowe had already made a name for himself as a hero of Gen-X moviegoers who truly appreciated his personalized, character-driven films.
