Elisabeth Shue Net Worth $12.5 Million

Elisabeth was raised in Wilmington – she is of German and English ancestry, as her mother was the offspring of William Brewster, the Pilgrim leader and her father’s family emigrated to the USA in the 19th century. After her parents’ divorce, Shue spent most of her childhood with three brothers, one of whom is actor Andrew Shue. She attended Columbia High School in New Jersey and continued her education at Wellesley College. In this period, Elisabeth first found interest in acting, thanks to her work in TV commercials from time to time, which was a fine way to pay for college. She could be seen in ads for Burger King, Hellmann’s Mayonnaise and DeBeers Diamonds. However, she decided to transfer to Harvard University in 1985, but when just a semester away from graduation, Shue left to start her acting career. Tragically, the same year her older brother died in a swimming accident. Elisabeth finished her studies later, eventually graduating from Harvard in 2000.

Shue made her film debut starring beside Ralph Macchio in “The Karate Kid” in 1984, a role that won her a Young Artist Award for Best Young Supporting Actress. This led to a series of roles during the ‘80s, as Elisabeth was later seen in the TV series “Call to Glory” (1984/5), the British horror film “Link” (1986), a notable role rewarded by Saturn Award, and her first starring role was in “Adventures in Babysitting” (1987), then starred opposite Tom Cruise in “Cocktail” (1988).

Elisabeth’s next engagements were in the sequels “Back to the Future Part II” (1989) and “Back to the Future Part III” (1990) in which she appeared as Jennifer Parker next to Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox. Immediately after, in May 1990 Elisabeth made her Broadway debut by playing in “Some American Abroad”, and in 1993 performing in “Birth and After Birth”. Perhaps her most notable role came in 1995 where she starred as a prostitute in “Leaving Las Vegas”, with Nicolas Cage. This performance earned her a series of nominations, including an Academy award nomination for Best Actress and nominations for a BAFTA, SAG and Golden Globe Awards for Best Actress. Shue won the Independent Spirit Awards for Best Actress and the National Society of Film Critics Awards, thus increasing the actress’s reputation and net worth.

During the ‘90s she played in several films such as “The Trigger Effect” (1996), Woody Allen’s “Deconstructing Harry” – starring with Billy Crystal, Demi Moore and Robin Williams – “The Saint” (1997) in which she showed her action movie abilities, and “Palmetto” in 1998. All contributed to her growing net worth.

Her acting career continued to flourish throughout the 2000s thanks to roles in movies and TV series, with Elisabeth playing side-by-side with Robert De Niro, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jessica Lange. Shue even started a project with her brother Andrew, producing the film “Gracie” (2007), a story more or less depicting the siblings childhood and the life of their older brother William.

Some of Elisabeth’s latest activity includes her appearances in the comedy-film “Hamlet 2” (2008), TV series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” (2009) and horror-comedy film “Piranha 3D” (2010). In early 2012, she joined the cast of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and the same year she appeared in three theatrical films. Clearly her net worth continues to grow.

In her personal life, Elisabeth is married to film director Davis Guggenheim(m.1994) with whom she has three children.
