Christopher Guest Net Worth and salary: Christopher Guest is an English-American actor, comedian, director, screenwriter and musician who has a net worth of $60 million. That is a combined net worth with his wife of several decades, actress Jamie Lee Curtis. He is most widely known for writing, directing and starring in several improvisational "mockumentary" films featuring an ensemble cast, beginning with This Is Spinal Tap and moving on to Waiting for Guffman, Best In Show, A Mighty Wind and For Your Consideration. Guest also had a featured role as the evil six-fingered Count Rugen in the film The Princess Bride.

Christopher Haden Guest was born February 5, 1948 in New York City, New York. He holds dual British and American citizenship. A young Guest spent most of his childhood in London where his father, the 4th Baron of Saling, in Essex, was a member of the House of Lords. As a teenager, Guest attended The High School of Music and Art in New York, ferrying back and forth between England and the United States. He credits his geographically diverse childhood for giving him his ability to mimic other dialects. One of Guest's earliest performances came in the Broadway show Moonchildren in 1972. But it wasn't long before he began moving in the direction of comedy, first contributing to The National Lampoon Radio Hour and then working with Chevy Chase in the off-Broadway revue National Lampoon's Lemmings.

In the late '70s, Guest began writing and performing for Saturday Night Live (SNL). It was there that he struck gold with This is Spinal Tap, a parody of an English rock band based on Guest's real experiences touring with an unnamed band in 1978. Guest would later team up with Rob Reiner and others to write the script and music for This is Spinal Tap (1984). Guest joined SNL in 1984 for a one year run as a cast member. Throughout the late '80s and early '90s, he made cameo appearances in such hit movies as Little Shop of Horrors. When Guest's father died in 1996, the actor became the 5th Baron Haden-Guest, of Saling, in the County Essex. For three years, until hereditary peers were barred in 1999, Guest regularly attended the House of Lords. Christopher Guest has been married to fellow actor Jamie Lee Curtis since 1984 with whom he shares two adopted kids.
