Spike Jonze net worth: Spike Jonze is an American director, producer, screenwriter and actor who has a net worth of $40 million. Spike Jonze accumulated his net worth through directing, producing and acting in films, television, commercials and music videos, as well as being a co-founder of Directors Labels. Born Adam Spiegel on October 22, 1969, in Rockville, Maryland, Jonze has carved out an extensive career creating music videos, commercials, as well as both feature and TV movies. Making his start as a photographer for skateboarder magazine Freestylin' in the late 1980s, Jonze turned to making films and music videos in the '90s. Soon he earned nods from critics and audiences for his popular takes on the Beastie Boy's Sabotage (1994) and Weezer's Buddy Holly (1994), which skilfully incorporated a "Happy Days" theme and an actual show footage. While he became firmly grounded in the music video world, he decided to dip his toes into something bigger and more complex, such as feature films. Breaking the ice as an actor in The Game (1997) and Three Kings (1999), he went on to establish himself as a director with the strikingly original Being John Malkovich (1999), which fetched him an Academy Award nomination for Best Director. Then he trod into uncharted territory as one of the creators of the outrageous series, Jackass (MTV, 2000-02), which earned public condemnation for its depiction of dangerous, but hilarious stunts. Getting back to narrative film-making, Jonze directed Adaptation (2002), a wildly unique, offbeat and entertaining dramedy that confirmed Jonze as a filmmaker who knows how to surprise his audiences with innovative techniques and insightful ideas.
