Jonathan Ross Net Worth $35 Million

Jonathan Stephen Ross was born on November 17, 1960 in St Pancras, London, England, United Kingdom. As a child actor he took parts in several television commercials. He graduated from Southampton College of Art at University College London.

Jonathan Ross debuted as adult actor in an episode of the television series ‘It Ain’t Half Hot, Mum’ written and created by Jimmy Perry and David Croft in 1981. He has also worked as a researcher on the television show ‘Loose Talk’, and later he did the same jobs on other shows. While working as a researcher he met Alan Marke with whom Ross founded ‘Channel X’ the production company which has greatly increased Jonathan Ross’ net worth. They have released the show ‘The Last Resort with Jonathan Ross’ and documentary series ‘The Incredibly Strange Film Show’.

From 1991 to 2008 Jonathan added much to his net worth presenting British Comedy Awards. From 1999 to 2010 Ross worked on the BBC radio program ‘Ross’ BBC Radio 2’ thus again increasing his popularity and net worth. From 2001 to 2010 Jonathan presented the talk show ‘Friday Night with Jonathan Ross’ directed by Mick Thomas and John L. Spencer. For his work in the television and radio industry he was awarded an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. Later, he was honoured by being named a Fellow of University College London. Moreover, Jonathan was awarded for the Best Entertainment Performance and received three BAFTA awards in 2004, 2006 and 2007. It has been reported, at that time, that Jonathan Ross was the highest paid BBC television star. This source, undoubtedly, has been the biggest part of the income in Jonathan Ross’ net worth.

In 2008, Ross published his first semi-autobiographical book entitled ‘Why Do I Say These Things?’ The same year, he won the Sony Gold Award. In 2010, Jonathan Ross left the BBC and published his first comic book ‘Turf’. Since Ross left BBC, he has signed a contract with CineMoi, the independent French film channel under which he became a shareholder of the company, director and producer of the films and also the presenter. Furthermore, since 2011 Ross works on ITV and hosts the chat show entitled ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’. In 2012, Jonathan Ross won the Special Recognition award at the National Television Awards. Ross is usually recognized for his distinctive voice and wit.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Reviewing George Clooney's fact-based "Good Night And Good Luck" on his "Film 2006" program on BBC Television, he referred to the villain of the piece (seen in actual news footage in the film) as "the infamous Senator Eugene McCarthy". In fact, as the film repeatedly makes clear, it was the infamous Senator Joseph McCarthy (no relation), a Republican demagogue. Eugene McCarthy was a politician of a later era, a widely-admired liberal and Democrat who tried unsuccessfully to gain a Presidential nomination in 1968.
2His interview with Steve Martin on The Last Resort with Jonathan Ross (1987) (broadcast 9 October 1987) was described by Melody Maker magazine (19th December 1987) as "the year's most embarrassing TV moment, Martin savagely highlighting his host's total lack of spontaneity".
3On December 14th 2010, Jonathan Ross joined the UK's French film channel, Cinemoi, in a multi-faceted role as presenter, producer, creative director and shareholder.
4Paid £3,000 for four tickets to see Barbara Streisand in concert in 2007.
5He was a regular at Soho's Blitz club during the early years of the New Romantic movement.
6Following his involvement in controversies in 2008 such as his interview with Gwyneth Paltrow on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross (2001), which contained sexually explicit content which the BBC Trust called "gratuitous and unnecessarily offensive", and his suspension following his performance on the Russell Brand radio show, the BBC decided in 2009 that Ross will no longer broadcast live on BBC radio in an attempt to make sure that he does not breach editorial guidelines again.
7Winner of the Music Industry Trusts' Award in 2009 for his outstanding contribution to the British music industry, joining the likes of acclaimed musicians such as John Barry, Elton John and Peter Gabriel, music industry executive Ahmet Ertegun and promoter Harvey Goldsmith.
8On Russell Brand's Radio 2 show on 18 October 2008, he and Brand left obscene messages on the answerphone of Andrew Sachs, concerning the fact that Brand had slept with Sachs's grand-daughter Georgina Baillie. This programme was later broadcast, provoking widespread complaint from the public and politicians such as Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Conservative leader David Cameron. Brand later resigned from the BBC and Ross was suspended without pay for three months. The controller of Radio 2, Lesley Douglas, also resigned, as did the head of compliance David Barber. The BBC Trust called it a "deplorable intrusion with no editorial justification" and Ofcom fined the BBC £150,000, calling it "gratuitously offensive, humiliating and demeaning".
9In 2006, he was one of several BBC star presenters whose salaries were leaked to a national newspaper by a temporary agency worker at the corporation. The same year, he signed a new contract with the BBC which some reports estimated to be worth £6 million annually, a figure the corporation refused to confirm or deny. Following this, the BBC Trust launched a review into whether the BBC was paying its stars above the market rate, which was published in 2008 and vindicated the corporation.
10Considers David Baddiel one of his closest friends.
11He has named The Temptations as his favorite R&B group.

13In an article published in the Radio Times in 2005, 70 industry experts from the BBC and commercial radio judged him the most powerful person in British radio.

16Brother of Paul Ross.
17His favorite musical artist is David Bowie and he plays a David Bowie song on every edition of his BBC Radio 2 show.
18A fan of the band Electric Light Orchestra.
19His top ten films of all time are: Duck Soup (1933), Sunset Blvd. (1950), Ikiru (1952), The Wages of Fear (1953) (aka The Wages of Fear), (1963), Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965), The Producers (1967), Blade Runner (1982), My Neighbor Totoro (1988) (aka My Neighbour Totoro) and In the Mood for Love (2000) (aka In The Mood for Love) [Source: "Sight and Sound"].

Quotes

#Quote
1[on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie] They're so startlingly attractive, I felt I needed to sit down! It's like your breath leaves your body. I was also starstuck meeting Barbra Streisand, as I'm a huge fan of hers, and with Sylvester Stallone - he's Rambo!
2[on guests he couldn't book for his talk shows] Unfortunately, the people I want are the ones who won't do it, like George Clooney, Michael Caine and Jack Nicholson. Michael recently sent me a charming letter, saying, 'Nothing personal, but I just don't feel comfortable doing talk shows anymore!' (Caine did eventually appear in 2016)
3I love Cheryl (Cheryl), I think Cheryl's an incredible performer. I saw Girls Aloud once and of all the girls on stage she was, I think, the most accomplished, the way she moved and the way she sang.
4I am about as big a fan of David Bowie as you will find on the planet.
5If you're not upsetting the Daily Mail you're doing something wrong. They're the most noxious human beings. And we know they're hypocrites and insincere.
6[on his critics in the press] They're not people I respect and I can't see how they have any respect for themselves.
7[on Rabbit-Proof Fence (2002)] Spectacular photography, excellent performances and a powerful story make this one of the year's best films. The kids - Tianna Sansbury, Laura Monaghan and especially Everlyn Sampi as Molly - are superb, as is Branagh (Kenneth Branagh) as Neville, the Chief Protector of Aborigines. The actor wonderfully captures the fanaticism behind Neville's beliefs. But the real star is director Phillip Noyce, who not only brings out such moving performances from his young actors but manages the tone of the film with such skill that you never feel you are being manipulated and can respond to the moving story and beautiful images as you wish. Marvellous and memorable.
8Congratulations to Simon Cowell on a landmark birthday... 50 and not out! Or is that just a rumour?
9I am delighted to be hosting the BBC's coverage of the Live Earth (2007) event as I am passionate about saving the planet. After all, I am the man who put the 'W's in rainforests.
10I love and admire George (George Michael) because he is so remarkably, uncompromisingly, perhaps even foolishly, his own man. I'm not talking about his recent late-night driving madness here, or indeed the brief stay 'inside' at her Majesty's Pleasure that was the inevitable end result. No, it's because the cherry on top of his remarkable talent is that he is a modern, gay man who refuses to act embarrassed, or even pay lip-service to dominant hetero-culture - instead offering himself up as a radical and yet much-needed alternative role model to young gay men who don't embrace camp or feminised homosexual behaviour as their own. A strong, butch, unashamedly gay man who does what he wants, when he wants to. I have nothing but admiration for his talent. Nothing but respect for his courage in the face of the sneering press that seek to diminish or destroy those that are different to them. And nothing but love for the whole package.
11[on receiving the Music Industry Trusts' Award from George Michael] George Michael, wow. I thought you were dead. And he's giving me a lift home, I can't believe my luck.
12Back in the Seventies I spent three whole years at an Emerson Lake and Palmer gig - and that was just the drum solo.
13I saw The Stooges way back in the Seventies when Iggy (Iggy Pop) on stage was just a primal force of nature. Who could have dreamt that one day I would seek and value his advice on car insurance?
14I've been passionate about music ever since I purchased my first single, "Pearl's a Singer" by Elkie Brooks. I was young, we all make mistakes.
15I am thrilled and excited that after a short break I will be rolling up my sleeves and creating a brand-new show for ITV1. I cannot wait to get back on screen with a fast, funny and unpredictable new talk show. I do have a little spare time, though, so if England needs a temporary new manager I will consider the post seriously.
16[on being a punk] I wore plastic trousers and winkle-pickers; my hair was spiky, greased and lacquered. But I wasn't going out to cause trouble. I just liked the look.
17[on Roxy Music] One of the greatest bands this country's ever produced.
18[on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross (2001)] One of the real delights for me doing this show has been the music we've had on. Over the years we've had just some of the best performers in the history of modern popular music.
19[on the final episode of Friday Night with Jonathan Ross (2001)] I promised Morrissey (Morrissey) I wasn't going to cry.
20[on asking David Cameron in an interview if he ever masturbated thinking about Margaret Thatcher] It wasn't intended to receive an answer, but rather to get a laugh - which it did. A big one, if I remember rightly. So job done.
21People like coming on my show because they know they'll have fun and they know I'm going to be respectful to them. I'm never, you know, mean-spirited.
22I know the loveliest people who swear all the time, and the most awful people who never swear. It really doesn't mean anything.
23[on the furore over his obscene phone call to Andrew Sachs in 2008] Can I be quite honest with you? In a way, the whole experience has been quite fun. Because it's been really odd. And interesting. And fun. Life can sometimes potter along in the same direction, and then something comes along over which you have no control. It was literally within about four days of it all kicking off that I just thought, you know what, there's no way I can control this, there's no way I can change this. So I've just got to not let it bother me. And then it became almost like I was watching it happen to somebody else. And it was quite entertaining. It was weird watching people get themselves into a lather over something so intrinsically unimportant as that. It was just silly. Silly people writing silly things.
24[on the furore over his obscene phone call to Andrew Sachs in 2008] It wasn't pleasant having people camp outside my house, and it wasn't pleasant people using me as a whipping boy. But you know what? You know what? It wasn't a big deal. So what? So what if a handful of idiots who write for a right-wing newspaper don't like me? Who cares? I don't.
25I'm good at TV. And I like doing it. One of the hardest things about leaving the BBC was the fact that a lot of people love the shows, and I feel I owe it to them and their loyalty not to waltz off. And part of the reason is I don't want the people who did come out against me to in any way have a sense of triumph. It's as simple as that. So it's really just to continue being an irritant. They're not people I have ever respected or liked, and if I can continue to be very publicly successful, that is its own reward for me. Not revenge, because I'm not about revenge. It's just about saying you're wrong. Your world view isn't right. We live in a country where it seems to be very much acceptable to be intensely judgmental about others - but I don't sit around judging people, and I find it very bizarre and peculiar that people judge me and then find different ways of justifying it.
26My talk show is not an interview show as such, which is why I'm always bemused when critics say the interview wasn't very good. And I think, but I'm not doing an interview! What I'm trying to do is make a comedy show. And that, trust me, is a fuck of a lot harder. Even though we're creating something in the moment that doesn't exist anywhere else, without them [my guests] I haven't got anything. And so I thought I really want to make something of mine.
27Even though I've done hundreds of hours of TV and radio, most of which - with a couple of minor missteps - have been well received, what I'm aware of always, and it's grown to slightly trouble me as I've got older, is that all the shows I do are somewhat parasitical, in that I'm feeding off others. If you do a movie review show or an interview show, you're talking to other people about work they've done.
28My love affair with comics is more important to me than my love of films, or my work in TV, or just about anything outside my family. You're hardwired for it, if you fall in love with comics when you're 11. And I think if there's one good thing I can maybe achieve with 'my celebrity', it's to try to broaden the horizons and widen the readership of this particular entertainment which I adore and which is somewhat belittled and denigrated and ignored. I just want to see comics getting a fair critical chance.
29My first television talk show The Last Resort with Jonathan Ross (1987) started on Channel 4 in 1987. It had been a big hit but after series four, despite it continuing to get pretty good ratings, we agreed with Channel 4 to stop. But I had grown accustomed to having my face on TV, and the money that comes with it, so I fronted a number of different programmes, none of which really worked. Anyway, this unhappy and unproductive period inevitably led to depression. I was stuck in a groove, basically drinking too much and spending my earnings none too wisely. I wanted to keep making shows because I didn't know what else to do, and because I thought I needed to keep earning the sort of money I had grown accustomed to. But earning that money by making shows I didn't care about made me far unhappier than being broke ever could have done.
30Music has always played a large part in my life and it's been a privilege to not only present most of my musical heroes but to give a leg up to the next generation.
31There are certain members of the press who may have an agenda against the BBC and me perhaps. In which case we don't listen to them.
32I'm delighted to be staying with the BBC if only because it is the only studio I can drive to without getting lost. It is the best channel in the country, and I'm proud they want me back.
33[on Michael Parkinson] He has stood above British television like a colossus. He is the greatest talk show host this country has ever, and I maintain will ever, produce.
34[on Jumper (2008)] Why Hayden Christensen keeps getting cast in lead roles in major films I've no idea. He was terrible in his two Star Wars films and he's equally dismal here.
35Spice Girls are reforming - in the same way they reform meat into nuggets. God bless them, they're going to be reforming under the name Atomic Mutton.
36[on presenting television coverage of the Live 8 concerts in 2005] It was, at times, very patronizing. I could have swapped Velvet Revolver for just about anyone. I can understand why they did it. They wanted maximum exposure in the Western media and to do that they need stories. Pink Floyd reforming gets you an awful lot of attention. Other acts were chosen to attract different parts of a Western audience, certainly to get the media attention, which they achieved and which they wouldn't with African musicians. I regret not saying anything about it on the day.
37Into the life of every film critic a little rain must fall, but even that knowledge, or the experience of watching four other dreadful Kevin Smith films, barely prepared me for the biblical deluge of awfulness that is Clerks II (2006). Even by the pitiful standards of films such as Mallrats (1995) and Dogma (1999), Mr Smith's latest work is breathtakingly shoddy. It's a real tribute to the man's shrewd use of the Internet to keep his profile alive that he's managed to sustain a career in the movie industry, as he has no detectable talent as writer, director, editor or actor.
38I'd rather written off Robin Williams, possibly as a consequence of the trauma induced by Patch Adams (1998).
39I love good stupid movies and make no apology for that fact. I suspect I'm the only film critic in the country who's a fully paid-up member of the Adam Sandler Fan Club or who can quote whole scenes from that underrated masterpiece of contemporary film comedy Soul Plane (2004).
40Upsetting Norman Tebbit has given me some small sense of satisfaction because he's spent 12 years upsetting me.
41I normally do things just for the huge amount of cash.
42It's shocking the lack of support the government gives the film industry. If it wasn't for the Bond movies and Harry Potter we'd be dead on our feet.
43The Avengers (1998) got some terrible reviews but I find it curiously satisfying.
44One thinks making movies is glamorous, but here we are in Bethnal Green.
45[on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross (2001)] I'm lucky because I have a lot of influence over my show. We don't book people unless I think I'm going to have fun with them and I have something I want to ask them.
46[reviewing V for Vendetta (2005)] "If it had been called 'V for Vasectomy', I could scarcely have found it a less enjoyable experience."
47As a youth when most of my friends were dreaming about being Sylvester Stallone or Michael Caine, I wanted to be Barry Norman.
48If I ever see Richard Gere in Primal Fear (1996) or First Knight (1995) again it'll be much too soon, and the same goes for the ludicrous Battlefield Earth (2000).
49I'd rather have chewed my own arm off than sit through something as putrid as Pearl Harbor (2001).
50Nothing can prepare you for quite how bad Gigli (2003) is.
51Pirate DVDs are not a victimless crime but some people are still buying them and that's making me cranky. Just stop buying them - that's the message we want to get out there. Saying yes to a pirate DVD is saying yes to crime on your street.
52Richard Curtis is one of the greatest comedy writers Britain has ever known . . . apart from the guy who used to write all Bob Monkhouse's jokes, who never really got the credit he deserved.
53I've made some good shows and I've made some dreadful shows.
54I don't ever go to the theatre. I try and avoid it whenever possible.
