Jackson Rathbone Net Worth $6 Million
Jackson Rathbone was a son of Randee Lynn and Monroe Jackson Rathbone IV, and grew up in Texas with his older sister Kelly, where he went to the Trinity School of Midland, then attended the private school for the arts in Michigan, the Interlochen Arts Academy, where he majored in acting. Although he had plans to enroll at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, Jackson decided to pursue his acting career instead, and moved to Los Angeles, California.
Rathbone’s career began in 2005, when he appeared in the independent movie called “River’s End”, and then played in 16 TV episodes of “Beautiful People” from 2005 to 2006. In 2006, Rathbone had roles in “Pray for Morning” starring Udo Kier, in two episodes of “The O.C.”, and in the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated “The Valley of Light” (2007) with Chris Klein and Gretchen Mol. Jackson also had a part in the comedy “Big Stan” (2007) starring Rob Schneider, David Carradine, and Sally Kirkland, but “Twilight” (2008) with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Billy Burke dramatically increased his net worth with over $392 million grossed worldwide. In 2009, Rathbone starred in “Dread” and then played in “Hurt”, before continuing with “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” (2009) and “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” (2010). These movies earned over $1.3 billion at the box office and significantly improved Rathbone’s wealth.
Early in this decade, Jackson had a part in “The Last Airbender” (2010) and in 16 episodes of the series “Aim High” (2011-2013), but then played in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” (2011). Once again, the film achieved commercial success and earned over $712 million worldwide, which only increased Jackson’s net worth further. In 2012, Rathbone appeared in “Cowgirls ‘n Angels”, and a reprise in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”, which grossed over $832 million. Jackson continued with “Pali Road” (2015) and in 12 episodes of “Finding Carter” (2015), while most recently, he had roles in “Until We Meet Again” (2016) and “Tokal” (2016). Currently, he is filming “Justice”, “Heart, Baby”, and “Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets” with Denise Richards, and all of which will be released later this year, adding to his net worth..
Along with two high school friends, Ben Graupner and Ben Johnson, and with Jerad Anderson and M. Lawrence Abrams, Rathbone formed a band called 100 Monkeys, and they had 100-city tour from December 2009 to the mid-2010. The band has released five albums so far: “Monster de Lux” (2009), “Creative Control Live” (2009), “Grape” (2009), “Live and Kickin Part One” (2010), and “Liquid Zoo” (2011), all activities no doubt adding to Jackson’s net worth..
