Annette Bening Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Annette Carol Bening was born on 29th May, 1958 in Topeka, Kansas, USA of English and German descent. She is an actress who was nominated for the Oscar as the Best Actress four times. More, Annette is the winner of London Film Critics’ Circle, National Society of Film Critics, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild and other popular Awards. Bening has been active in the entertainment industry since 1986.

How rich is the actress who has been on the stage for more than 20 years? Sources have estimated that the net worth of Annette Bening is as much as $48 million. It has been reported that she has earned more than $30 million over the last few years from just these films: “Danny Collins” (2015), “The Search” (2014), “Girl Most Likely” (2012), “The Face of Love” (2013), “Ginger and Rosa” (2012) and “Ruby Sparks” (2012).

Annette Bening Net Worth $48 Million

To begin with, Annette was interested in acting from high school times, when she landed the leading role in the play “The Sound of Music” at Patrick Henry High School. She subsequently graduated with a degree in arts from San Francisco State University. During her studies she had membership at the American Conservatory Theatre, and consequently, she took parts in such plays as “Lady Macbeth”, “The Cherry Orchard” and “Pygmalion”.

In addition to this, she debuted on the big screen having a supporting role in the film “The Great Outdoors” (1988) directed by Howard Deutch. The film received mixed reviews from critics though it was a box office hit. This role was a good start for the upcoming roles as a year later she starred alongside Colin Firth in the drama film “Valmont” (1989) directed by Miloš Forman. As a result of successful acting Bening won the London Film Critics’ Circle Award as the Newcomer of the Year. These parts resulted in a healthy start to Annette’s net worth.

The more roles she created, the better they became. She won various prestigious awards for the roles in the following films “The Grifters” (1991), “Postcards from the Edge” (1992), “Guilty by Suspicion” (1992), “Bugsy” (1992), “The American President” (1996), “The Siege” (1999), “American Beauty” (2000), “Open Range” (2004), “Being Julia” (2004), “Mrs. Harris” (2006), “Running with Scissors” (2006) and “The Women” (2009). However, the most nominations as well as the awards Annette received were for her role in the comedy-drama film “The Kids Are All Right” (2010) directed by Lisa Cholodenko. The film received a worldwide recognition, and the box office grossed $34 million while the budget was only $4 million. Annette Bening won fourteen different awards for her role, not to mention various nominations. Afterwards, she created outstanding roles in the films “Ginger & Rosa” (2014) and “The Face of Love” (2014) for which she was nominated for awards, too. Currently, she is working in the film “Untitled Warren Beatty” which is going to be released soon.

Annette has experienced ups and downs in her personal life, as she married choreographer J. Steven White in 1984, but they divorced in 1991. In 1992, she married the actor, director and producer Warren Beaty. They have four children together.

#Quote
1Sometimes you're reading something, and you don't know it will be important in your life. You're reading this script, and you start to get involved. It's not an intellectual experience.
2There's so much of our psychological makeup which is impermissible for us to explore because it's inappropriate or perverse or scary. I'm interested in exploring that in myself. I try to be honest with myself about everything that I feel. I'm not saying I'm able to do that all the time, but it's something I'm interested in.
3We all get lost along the way, but hopefully we figure out some sort of path. It helps if you can imagine the process as well as the goal. Those kinds of dreams are easier to achieve.
4There's no question that you can explore aspects of yourself through roles that you play, and you get a chance to investigate yourself; that's healthy, and it's therapeutic in a way. But if you're indulging yourself, exploration at the cost of the story or the project, that's not good.
5What really motivates you to try to work things out as an actor is in large part fear, because you want to get into that narrative and bring the audience along.
6When I look at women, older than I am, in their 50s, 60, 70s, 80s, and I see women that I admire, I think, "Oh, I get it; that's how I'm going to be." I'm not scared. I want to be that.
7With movies, so much of it is, "Who is the human being that is going to be directing it?". Because it is their medium. In a way, you are serving the director, and when it is someone that you feel you can have a lot of confidence in, it can make a big difference.
8When I started, I was a theater actress, and there were roles that I couldn't imagine not playing, like Rosalind in "As You Like It". I used to think I would die if I could play that. But then I started doing movies, and I had children, and I moved to Los Angeles. And now I kind of can't remember what those roles would be.
9Getting all dressed up and putting on fancy clothes - all of that's a great thing, but oddly, it doesn't really have a lot to do with acting most of the time.
10I do have to take care of myself, not only because I'm in the movies, just for mental health reasons. I exercise for me. You know, maybe it would be nice to not have to do that in order to feel good, but I do. I feel like I have to, to feel good. To clear my head and all of that, so.
11I feel really lucky that I'm able to pursue the work that I love. I want my children to see that. I want them to have that for themselves, something that they love, that they do, that they pursue in their lives as a way of growing and learning.
12I always wonder about people's history and their lives, especially people that are a little bit more distant, who obviously have had some kind of a thing, and you know there's some reason why they're not able to connect. It's not because they don't want to. They don't have the ability.
13Even with a stable character, you want something surprising to happen, hopefully because that's what the camera loves the most. That's what is great about film.
14I like that I've been through things, that when something happens, it resonates with something that already happened. It's not that things like loss are more or less painful. But they're deeper. I find that fascinating.
15I think in the past, around the time that method acting became so prevalent, it used to be that American actors were thought to be the kind that would work more from the inside out, and that the English actors worked more from the outside in.
16I think what's interesting about the whole paparazzi thing is that unless you're Brad Pitt or Madonna, you can pretty much avoid it. You know when you're going to an opening that you will be photographed, so that's fine. And you know the restaurants that have paparazzi, so you don't go to them.
17I feel very, very lucky to have come from the family I did. We have our dysfunctions and our problems, just like any family. But my parents are extremely loving people.
18I saw a Shakespeare play when I was - I guess I was in junior high. And I just fell in love with the theater because, for me, it was a combination of big ideas and feeling.
19My sister and I fought a lot when we were kids. I was the little bratty sister, and she would kind of walk away, not wanting to be associated with me.
20Most women would say they relate to 'Hedda Gabler' - there's a part of her in them. Ibsen was writing about a deep ambivalence that many women feel about domesticity. I think about myself and friends of mine - we have some of Hedda's qualities and traits.
21It's hard to make a living in this business. Unions aren't as strong as they used to be. For a journeyman actor - someone who doesn't have a famous name but has consistent work in theater or film or television - it has become harder to get through, harder to raise a family.
22My character in Running with Scissors (2006) is manic-depressive. She starts out as a wonderfully eccentric person, and then descends into a terrible illness.
23I think you sort of shed skins as you go along in life. You get into your 40s, and you feel like "Okay, no more pretending." You get to just be who you are.
24I didn't do a movie until I was almost 30. I'm grateful for that because it gave me a chance to be an adult in the world and do work in the regional theater that very few people cared about. I loved it and I wanted to do that stuff.
25We still want to idealize moms, and sometimes we want to idealize actresses who are moms, too. I know that's something I've experienced, but we're all just doing the best we can and we're all trying to raise our kids and talk to them about everything that needs to be discussed.
26A lot of directors in my experience are very receptive. They see what you do first, and then they want to find a place to put the camera, and they tweak you here and there.
27Anybody who has children and children who are well feels a sense of responsibility towards parents and kids and families that are struggling and that aren't well.
28Right now, I love the fact that I have so many opportunities, but I know this privileged position cannot last. That doesn't mean that I'll stop working. I picture myself as an old actress doing cameos in films with people saying: "Isn't that that Bening woman?".
29I've always been pretty levelheaded. In show business, you need to have a certain internal stability.
30I'm still very critical of myself in film.
31I'm lucky: almost all my family has lived to be very old. I have one grandfather who lived to be 100.
32I'm certainly not a perfect mother, but I am an avid mother, let me put it that way.
33I'm interested in writing that explores all sides of human beings.
34The time I spend with my kids informs every fiber of who I am.
35I didn't picture myself as a movie actress. I began to think about it around college. I remember thinking, "Well somebody has to be in them", so maybe I could do that eventually. It's all been a surprise.
36When I started in the theater, I'd do plays by Shakespeare or Ibsen or Chekhov, and they all created great women's roles.
37To me, I didn't think of acting as being a young thing only.
38What makes us love a character is a character that tries.
39I think we as celebrities have a lot more control.
40I never thought my private life would be newsworthy.
41I think when you're at your best as an actor, it is cathartic.
42I think people have a right to their point of view.
43I think for all of us, as we age, there are always a few moments when you are shocked.
44My parents were very supportive. They went to every show. And they never told me not to do what I was doing.
45It's always 'busy' with four children; it's chaos.
46My mother is not somebody who's troubled by aging.
47My dad was in the life insurance business, so I learned about selling when I was about 14 because I started working as a secretary.
48My husband and I have very similar backgrounds even though we're years apart. So there are a lot of things that we basically share.
49I've tried to take roles with great demands.
50If you can open people's hearts first, then maybe people's minds get opened after that.
51If anything, I want to please people too much.
52If you're an actor, you have to find a way to make peace with all the media attention.
53I've played parts that were just likable people, and there's a certain pleasure in that. And that's that.
54Glamour is really fun.
55Find the story you want to tell. If you don't want to write it, find somebody to write it.
56Critics have a responsibility to put things in a cultural and sociological or political context. That is important.
57Having a life outside of movies is like pure oxygen. It makes the work more precious and informed.
58Every person's opinion, in a way, does matter.
59I find the reality of our emotional lives interesting.
60I have perfected the art of putting my feet on my husband's lap during awards ceremonies so he can rub them.
61I have huge chunks of time when I'm not working.
62I just want to be educated.
63I had never been attracted to younger guys. I had, from my late teens, always liked men who were older than me.
64I never speak for my husband, and I never speak for my children. It's a rule. Believe me, it is.
65I like things that I feel comfortable in.
66I love the luxury of the camera. The camera does so much for you. I like the secrets a camera can tell.
67I love the craft of acting, I love learning, I love everything that comes with the new project; the whole process is totally intoxicating to me.
68I never felt like I had made it.
69I am in awe of Ruth Draper.
70I feel that certain things are best kept inside a family and not discussed with anyone else.
71I don't see myself as having to compete with younger actresses; I don't feel that.
72I act, but I am a mother first and wife second.
73I feel very lucky I don't have to be a critic.
74Yes, I know I've played these women, but I'm not really conniving at all.
75To me idealized characters are so boring to play, especially having grown up in the classical theater. That's a great experience, but as a woman, especially, you've played a lot of idealized characters. So when you've got someone who has weaknesses as well as strengths, that's interesting.
76Somebody said something really smart: It's like you end up being the defense attorney for your role. Your job is to defend their point of view. You're fighting for what they want. You learn that in acting school - it's Acting 1A: "What do you want? What's in the way?".
77Anyone who is drawn in broad strokes either negatively or positively is generally not very interesting to play.
78When I watch my kids, and I see the primal level at which the sibling relationships are formed, then I completely understand what these unresolved adult sibling problems are based on. You know, "Mom liked you better" and, "You got your own room and I didn't".
79I love being busy, and I love having a lot going on; it's exciting.
80There are so many different kinds of relationships, so it's sort of difficult to define what is considered normal.
81Most people are looking for something to give their life meaning.
82I've made some movies that I really loved that nobody saw.
83Oh, honey, I'm from Oklahoma! This is who I am - middle-class all the way!
84I knew I wanted children in my life. The acting was always in relation to it. Life at home is chaos. They're wonderful. They're such interesting human beings. I just love it. I'm lucky.
85We all perform our lives in a way. And the actor is a perfect metaphor to get at that theme of "how do we find our authentic selves?". And that we all - whether we're actors or not - perform ourselves. As a way of searching. As a way of fumbling around and trying to say, is this my voice? Is this who I am?
86And if there's anything movies can do in a way that I just love, and I love as an audience is, "Show me something I don't know about. Show me something I haven't seen.".
87I don't see myself as competing with other actresses. I mean, I went through a time when I was in New York, and I was going to lots of auditions and trying to get parts, but even then, you're not really competing with the other actresses. There is a competition going on, but it's not like something you can win in that way.
88Everybody has a public life, and they have their own private life. Everybody has their secrets. Everybody has their own private, you know, agonies as well as joys. And that's what great drama, whether it's the movies or the theater, that's what it shows.
89I read "Game Change". If you want to relive the campaign, that book is unbelievable. It's great. It's the book of that campaign. It brought all the memories back of everything with Clinton and Obama, and Sarah Palin and McCain, and choosing her, and John Edwards. It was an interesting book.
90By the time I was in high school, Roe v. Wade had passed, so that was also happening; girls were getting pregnant and getting abortions - and that happened in my school too.
91The tension I feel is the moment they say, "Action!". Movies are like lightning in a bottle, and you always want to find when you possibly can catch a surprising moment.
92I don't really have a choice. I'm getting older.
93There's love for your parents, your family, your spouse, your partner, your friends, but the nature of the connection you have with your child, there's nothing like it. It has its own character and it's so serious and so powerful, and so it's a prism through which I see everything.
94It's kind of a mystery to me, as far as my own life experiences and what I've witnessed - why some people can just move on through traumatic experiences, in childhood particularly, and why other people are just paralyzed by it. I just don't know how and why that is.
95Our children see us a certain way, and we want to be seen by them in a certain way. I certainly want to be a strong, stable, loving, consistent presence in my children's lives. But we are human beings, too.
96I wanted to be a classical actress. I plodded along. I went to junior college in San Francisco, I was in a Repertory Company. My hero was Eva Le Gallienne, who was a great theater actress at the turn of the century who created her own company, and she wrote these hilarious autobiographies at the time.
97Five billion people have played Hamlet. "To be or not to be". And how do you do that and find your way into your own journey, your own way of telling it?
98It's easier to see in someone else, another actor, how they kind of disappear and then this other persona appears. A great actor is a thing of mystery.
99Acting is not about being famous, it's about exploring the human soul.
100I am really looking forward as I get older and older, to being less and less nice.
101It used to be the one or the other, right? You were the 'bad girl' or the 'good girl' or the 'bad mother' or 'the good mother,' 'the horrible businesswoman who eschewed her children' or 'the earth mother who was happy to be at home baking pies,' all of that stuff that we sort of knew was a lie.
102I remember hearing someone say that good acting is more about taking off a mask than putting one on, and in movie acting, certainly that's true. With the camera so close, you can see right down into your soul, hopefully. So being able to do that in a way is terrifying, and in another way, truly liberating. And I like that about it.
103I still remember the five points of salesmanship: attention, interest, conviction, desire and close.
104[on working with Michel Hazanavicius in The Search (2014)] I knew The Artist (2011) of course, shot in L.A. It's a marvelous film. I was very impressed when I learned the director was preparing such a different film. It's very brave of Michel to have taken the time to throw himself into such a project. Michel is very direct, unpretentious. It's very easy to communicate with him, as it is with Bérénice [Bejo]. Both are professionals who, like me, also like to have fun. Even during the most serious moments there's always a place for laughter. They have a real love of life and a great curiosity towards the world. Me too. We had some excellent times together. I was delighted to be part of such an important film.
105I think where I've instinctively found myself is that I am somewhat guarded in my public life. Being interviewed or being photographed or just in public attention I have a certain reserve. But when I'm working I feel like I'm very open. At least I like to believe that I feel like nothing is held back when I'm in front of a camera. That's my job.
106The movie business is tough. It's driven by economics and economics are about trying to get a lot of people into the theater. That's the reality of the business, the culture we're in.
