Jet Li Net Worth $55 Million
Li Lianjie was born on April 26, 1963, in Beijing, China. He was raised only by his mother, as his father died when Jet Li was 2 years old. Jet Li came from a really poor background, but he was able to overcome all the circumstances and become successful in Wushu at a young age. Later he even had an opportunity to visit the United States together with his Wushu team, and that’s how the Jet Li began his career as an actor, coming here from a martial arts background. He was offered the work of a bodyguard, but refused and arrived back to his home country. The next time he visited United States was several years later, but then no one could even imagine how rich Jet Li was going to be in a short period of time.
Jet Li was a pupil of a famous Chinese coach and thanks to his hard work finally won the national championship of Wushu which was held in Beijing. He made a great career as a fighter, but after leaving Wushu Jet Li had to think about how to increase his net worth. Then he began to appear in Chinese action films which showed his great abilities in martial arts. These first movies didn’t reach American audiences, and so didn’t increase Jet Li’s net worth much at all, however, this experience later became very useful when Yang Chung decided to try his luck in the United States as an actor.
In Hollywood Jet Li first took the role of Wah Sing Ku in the movie “Lethal Weapon 4” directed by Richard Donner. Li was able not only to increase his net worth a little, but also show himself to other film producers and directors. That’s why in 2000 he was already starring as the main character Han Sing in the movie “Romeo Must Die”. Later Jet Li’s net worth was built up even bigger thanks to his abilities as a talented businessman, who provided girlish cosmetics, owned several restaurants called “Fat Li Burger” and even managed to launch a new brand of Vodka, “Pure Wonderli” in China.
