What is George Clooney’s Net Worth and Salary?

George Clooney is an American Director, Actor, TV Producer, and Screenwriter who has a net worth of $500 million. In the entertainment industry, he is widely regarded as one of the most sought-after A-List actors.

For just one character he performs in any film production, George is paid more than $20 million.

With a successful acting career that is now in its fourth decade, a well-regarded directing career, a number of profitable writing and producing credits to his name, and good looks that tend to get better with age, it would seem that Mr. Clooney has the touch of Midas.

The Casamigos Tequila company was co-founded by George. By selling Casamigos to Diageo for $1 billion in 2017, George and his two partners made a tidy profit.

Formative Years

Nick Clooney, a former TV host, and Nina Bruce, a beauty queen, and city councilwoman, welcomed George Clooney into the world on May 6, 1961, in Lexington, Kentucky. Despite being raised as a Roman Catholic, George today defines himself as being a little agnostic.


The family moved to Mason, Ohio after enrolling in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky’s Blessed Sacrament School.

After the Clooneys had returned to Kentucky, George Clooney was given a Bell’s Palsy diagnosis during his seventh-grade year, a condition that results in partial facial paralysis.

After a year, it disappeared, although George claimed that it was a difficult period because he was made fun of for it. In fact, he tried out for the Cincinnati Reds after high school but was unsuccessful.

He loved playing basketball and basement. George later pursued a course of study in broadcast journalism at Northern Kentucky University between 1979 and 1981, although he was never awarded a diploma.

Early Professional Career

George lived in his car for a period after moving to Los Angeles. But his famous aunt Rosemary Clooney, a singer, owns the Beverly Hills home where the automobile was parked. The Facts of Life, Roseanne, and The Golden Girls were a few TV shows where he finally got cameo roles.

Breakthrough in Career

George’s first notable role was on the sitcom “E/R” in 1984, not to be confused with his breakout performance on the NBC drama “ER,” which began in 1994 and in which he was cast as Dr. Doug Ross.

He appeared in several movies when he was still on “ER,” such as “Out of Sight,” “One Fine Day,” and “From Dusk til Dawn.”

Although he only made an appearance in one “Batman” movie, he also succeeded Val Kilmer as the character.

Between 1994 and 1999, as well as in 2000 and 2009, he had several appearances on “ER.” In all, 109 episodes featured him.

He received two Primetime Emmy nominations and three Golden Globe nominations for best actor while portraying Dr. Ross on “ER.”

After “ER”

Following his departure from “ER,” George experienced a string of box office triumphs, including “Ocean’s 11,” which is now among his most well-liked films.

In the same year as “O’ Brother, Where Art Thou,” he also had roles in “The Perfect Storm” and “The Perfect Storm.”George recurred in the roles of Ocean’s 12 and Ocean’s 13.

For his work in the 2005 movie “Syriana,” Clooney received the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award.

When he was nominated for “Good Night, and Good Luck” for both its writing and directing, he made Oscar history by being the first person to ever garner nominations for both directing and acting in two separate films in the same year.

In the 2009 movies “The Men Who Stare at Goats,” “Up in the Air,” and “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” George Clooney added to his extensive list of accomplishments by collaborating alongside Ewan McGregor.

He received a ton of positive reviews for his films “Argo,” “The Descendants,” and “The Ides of March” from 2011 and 2013, respectively.

Since the beginning of the Oscars, only Clooney has been nominated in six different categories.

When George co-starred with Sandra Bullock in the 2013 film “Gravity,” he also received favorable reviews. He received the 2018 AFI Life Achievement Award in recognition of all of his accomplishments in the entertainment world.

Career Income

One of his earliest triumphs was the 1996 movie “One Fine Day,” which brought in $3 million. He earned $10 million from his sole “Batman” cameo, another $10 million from “Out of Sight,” $8 million from “The Perfect Storm,” $15 million from “Intolerable Cruelty,” $20 million from “Ocean’s Eleven,” a career-high, and another $15 million from “Ocean’s Thirteen.” Just George’s work in film and television has generated around $200 million before taxes.

Real Estate including Lake Como

All throughout the world, George and Amal have real estate. George purchased the Villa Oleander on Italy’s Lake Como in 2002 for $30 million, and it is debatably his most well-known asset.

Villa Oleander, built in the 18th century, is a 15-bedroom property with a lakefront location in Laglio, Italy.

A separate “pizza parlor,” a tennis court, a full gym, planted gardens, ornately carved ceilings, sizable baths, and a wonderfully built wall that prevents the lake from directly pouring into the house.

Because he frequently invites people over for special occasions, Villa Oleander has become somewhat of a legend in Hollywood circles.

In 2010, he welcomed John Krasinksi and Emily Blunt to use the Villa for their wedding and reception.

He goes on vacation there frequently enough that the 900-person village where his villa is located has been obliged to enact a law that penalizes any group greater than three that is seen standing, staring, or taking pictures.

He has undoubtedly gotten his money’s worth considering how much use the house has received since he bought it in 2002.

 Payscales Highlights

George received a payment of $40,000 for each of his 19 appearances on “Sisters.” That comes to a sum of $760,000. Each “ER” episode brought in $100,000 for George.

In order to boost his burgeoning film career, he purposefully never requested a raise and instead concentrated on becoming a major celebrity. For his work in “ER,” George received a total salary of almost $11 million.

Personal Relationship

George Clooney is interested in a number of political causes, such as the conflict in Darfur, Sudan, and the drive to gather money for help following the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

He has a keen interest in the project Not On Our Watch. In 1989, he wed Talia Balsam, although they later divorced in 1993.

George continued to reside with his pet pig, Max until Max passed away in 2006. According to a spokeswoman at Amal Alamuddin’s legal company Doughty Street Chambers,  he proposed to the British-Lebanese human rights attorney on April 28, 2014.

On September 27, 2014, Clooney and Alamuddin exchanged vows at Ca’ Farsetti. An old friend of George Clooney’s, Walter Veltroni, who served as mayor of Rome, officiated the ceremony. Twins named Ella and Alexander were born on July 6, 2017, to the couple.
