Guillermo del Toro Net Worth:
$30 Million

Guillermo del Toro net worth and salary: Guillermo del Toro is a Mexican director and producer who has a net worth of $30 million. Guillermo del Toro is well-known for directing many highly successful and critically acclaimed films such as Pan's Labyrinth, The Shape of Water, Pacific Rim, Crimson Peak and the Hellboy series. As of this writing, his films have grossed more than $1 billion worldwide after adjusting for ticker price inflation.

Many of his films, whether in screenwriting, directing, or producing, have a horror element which has allowed him to attract a very specific niche throughout his career. Del Toro was originally chosen to direct the Hobbit films, but was ultimately unable to complete the project. He is still credited for co-writing. Del Toro hails from Mexico, where he was born into a Catholic family. He then went on to study films, and has been involved in the film-making process since he was 8 years old. He then went on to learn various aspects of behind-the-scenes work, such as special effects, and make up. Before his first full-length film, Del Toro is said to have made up to 10 shorter films in his early career. Together they have two daughters. Guillermo's 2017 movie The Shape of Water received wide commercial and critical acclaim. It was nominated for many awards including Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.

Personal Life and Divorce Settlement: Guillermo del Toro was married to his high school sweetheart, Lorenza Newton, from 1986-2017. He reportedly paid her roughly half of his net worth in a divorce settlement, potentially as much as $30 million. Hence his relatively "small" net worth compared to directors of similar success. They have two children together, both daughters.

Real Estate: In a 12 month period starting in mid 2019, Guillermo purchased THREE homes in Los Angeles. He paid $4.5 million for a home in Santa Monica. He paid $1.4 million for a modest home in mid-Los Angeles. He paid around $900,000 for a condo in West Hollywood.
