Roman Polanski net worth: Roman Polanski is a Polish film director, producer, writer, and actor who has a net worth of $45 million. Roman Polanski has been deemed one of the few truly international filmmakers. Born in Paris to Polish-Jewish parents, he was raised in Poland as World War II tore through Europe. He survived the Holocaust and in the 1950s, he started acting, starring in Andrzej Wajda's A Generation (1955). Next, he attended the Lodz Film School and made his early shorts like Two Men and a Wardrobe (1958), The Fat and the Lean (1961) and Mammals (1962), which revealed his taste for black humor and interest in bizarre human relationships. In 1962, Polanski also created his first feature-length film, Knife in the Water, which was the first Polish movie to get an Oscar nomination for best foreign film. Since, he began to earn manifold accolades for his movie-making, including five more Oscar nominations, two Baftas, four Césars, a Golden Globe Award and the Palme d'Or of the Cannes Film Festival in France. In the UK he directed three films, starting with 1965's Repulsion. Next, he moved to the US and cemented his status by directing the horror film Rosemary's Baby (1968). But after the brutal murder of his pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, by the infamous Manson family in 1969, the director returned to Europe. He did not direct another film until 1971's Macbeth in England. Polanski again made a US release, Chinatown (1974), which was a critical and box-office success. However, his chance for starting a promising Hollywood career was ruined after his conviction for the statutory rape of a 13-year old girl. He fled US once again, this time to avoid prison. His next big project was Tess (1979), which was awarded with several Oscars and Cesars. Polanski went on to make critically appraised movies like The Pianist (2002), for which he won nearly all the most important film awards. In addition to the above, he still eagerly appears in the films of other directors, sometimes with interesting results as in A Pure Formality (1994).
