What is Stanley Tucci's net worth and salary?
Stanley Tucci is an American actor, writer, film producer, and director who has a net worth of $25 million. Stanley Tucci began his professional acting career with a role on Broadway in the 1982 production of "The Queen and the Rebels". After focusing on theater work for a few more years, he made the leap to film, debuting with a small role in "Prizzi's Honor". He branched out into television in the late 80s, appearing in guest starring roles in "Crime Story", "The Street", and "Miami Vice". His work on film began to gain notice, and he began to appear in more high-profile roles. Since the early 90s, he has gone back and forth between film and television work constantly, appearing in such film projects as "Billy Bathgate", "Prelude to A Kiss", "The Pelican Brief", "Big Night", "Deconstructing Harry", "A Midsummer Night's Dream", "Road to Perdition", "Shall We Dance", "The Devil Wears Prada", "The Lovely Bones", "Easy A", "Captain America: The First Avenger", and "The Hunger Games".

He has been nominated for an Oscar and a Tony a dozen Emmy Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards. As of this writing he has won five Emmys and three Golden Globes.
Despite his steady work and his multiple awards, he has managed to maintain "character" actor status, and seems to happily stay below the radar. In late 2012, he married Felicity Blunt, the older sister of Emily Blunt, his co-star in "The Devil Wears Prada".
Stanley also stars on the critically-acclaimed CNN travel series "Searching for Italy."
