Hopefully, Kurt’s fans will soon hear news about his upcoming projects and will be able to enjoy his talent for a long time as he still continues his career, so his net worth is also likely to rise.

Kurt Russell Net Worth $70 Million

Both of Kurt’s parents were involved in show business, as his father worked as an actor and his mother as a dancer. That is why Kurt knew a lot about being recognised and famous, and there is also a high chance that his parents influenced his desire to become an actor himself. His career began when he was only six years old, when he appeared in the television show called “Sugarfoot”. In 1963 he appeared in “Our Man Higgins” and “The Eleventh Hour” – this was the time when Kurt’s net worth began growing. In the same year Kurt received an invitation to portray one of the main characters in the television show called “The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters”, during which Kurt had an opportunity to work with Charles Bronson, Dan O’Herlihy, Donna Anderson, Meg Wyllie and others.

In 1971, Kurt appeared in the movie entitled “Fools’ Parade”, followed by appearances in other movies such as “Now You See Him, Now You Don’t”, ‘The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes” and “The Strongest Man in the World. These movies had a huge impact on the growth of Kurt Russell’s net worth. Other movies and television shows that Kurt appeared in include “Tango & Cash”, “Stargate”, “Cutlass”, “Daniel Boone”, “The Quest” and many others.All have contributed to his net worth.

Russell has appeared in over 50 films on the big screen, and more than 35 TV productions during a career now spanning over 50 years. Recently Kurt has been working on the movie called “Deepwater Horizon”, so hopefully the list of television shows and movies that Kurt appears in will become even longer.

To talk about Kurt Russell’s personal life, in 1979 Kurt married Season Hubley; they have a son, but divorced in 1983. Soon after his divorce Russell started a relationship with Goldie Hawn, and they have been together since, although never marrying. They live in California with their son and Goldie’s two children from her previous relationship, who consider Kurt as their father. All in all, Kurt Russell is one of the most successful actors in the industry. Kurt has worked really hard and has been able to achieve acclaim and popularity all over the world. Let’s hope that he will be able to continue his career for a long time.

51He and his Tombstone (1993) co-star, Val Kilmer, have both played Elvis Presley.

52He was considered for the role of Jonathan Kent in Man of Steel (2013) that went to Kevin Costner.
53When he and director John Carpenter were discussing the character of MacReady in The Thing (1982), they thought about making MacReady a former Vietnam chopper pilot who felt displaced by his service in the war and, as a result, was much more isolated than the other characters.

55He was considered for the role of Martin Riggs in Lethal Weapon (1987) that went to Mel Gibson.
56Said in his audio commentary for Big Trouble in Little China (1986) that the test audiences reacted so well to the film that he thought for sure that he and director friend John Carpenter had a box office hit on their hands.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on The Expendables (2010)] I mean, I'm glad Sly's done well with this. He's a great person. The fellas all seem to have a good time. I've never seen any of them. It's not a beat I get. It's like looking backwards to me.
2[on Los Angeles] This town is PC capital of the world, more so than Washington DC. These people who are really seriously afraid of life. First of all you have to ask yourself, why is there political correctness? The only answer is because you're afraid to say what you honestly believe. Well, what a fucking shame that you can't say what you believe in America. This place stood for that at one time.
3(1996, on being part of the Hollywood community) At times I take great pride in it. But most of the time I'm completely ashamed of it, especially on the night of the Academy Awards. It's the one night of the year where I just want to crawl in a hole and hide. It's a bit like standing shoulder-to-shoulder with assholes. Mike Nichols and I were talking about politics once and he said, "The thing is, you can't stand shoulder-to-shoulder with assholes." And he's right. I can't. What's interesting about Oscar night is it's a joke-it's about how bad everything is. Everybody knows that that's the night to applaud Hollywood in all its horror. And yet...There's no other business that can create such enjoyment of life as this business. I love being part of that. Actors have changed my life at times. When people get to know me, I can't tell you how many times they come up to me and say, "You're nothing like what I've read about." I think people feel me more than they hear me. I've read interviews I've done and it's exactly what I've said but it's not what I was saying. I have an acerbic, sardonic sense of humor. I'm being facetious 90 percent of the time, but then 10 percent of the time I'm not. So unless I was to qualify everything I say, I'm not going to be understood.
4(1996) I am like Thomas Jefferson or Benjamin Franklin. I love life. I have a comic outlook, I laugh at myself harder than at anybody else. I get extremely vociferous about things I don't believe in, but I'm in the moment. Benjamin Franklin loved life, he wasn't a negative person. And I do sense that I'm being more perceived like that now.
5(1996, on his passion for hunting and where that started) My grandfather owned a hotel along Kennebago Lake in Maine. It had 31 log cabins and was built in 1887. I grew up watching all the guys going out in snowshoes while I played with my sister in the yard, and they'd come back with a deer. And then I got old enough to go with them. I grew up thinking that was the way to live. You could feed yourself, you could have corn in your garden, you could stock things in a barn, you didn't need anybody to do anything. And my grandparents were doing that. My grandfather was a phenomenal shot. And I watched my dad shoot deer, impossible shots when I could barely even see the deer. Goldie's a great game cook. We have a party every New Year's Day in Old Snowmass where everybody just watches the football games and they have Goldie's elk stew. We cook as much of the stuff as we can and finish it every time. And she enjoys that.
6(1996) It would be fun to have enough money to have a small restaurant where you could have your eclectic group of friends come in and get a good meal and be able to scream and holler, about politics, about anything-and you could be able to afford to lose $200,000 a year on it and it wouldn't make a difference. I'd like to have a jet airplane that I could fly, which would get me back and forth to Aspen inside of two hours, so that Aspen could become a weekend place. I'd like to have enough money to be able to afford some things for my family that I know they could use. Then, too, you know, certain humanitarian things-like, financing a school which could make a difference.
7(1996) When I read Executive Decision (1996), it was a real page-turner. I read scripts for the movies more than I do for the characters. I've read lots of characters I'd like to play, but I didn't enjoy the movie itself that much. I liked the fun of Executive Decision (1996), you know, I feel when an audience sees my name attached to a film, they think it'll probably be a pretty good movie. The movies I do, if we make them well, will be fun to watch. They may not be the best movie of the year, and I may not be your favorite actor, but people come up to me all the time and say, "I like the movies you do".
8(1996) The only time in my entire life as an actor when I felt I didn't know what I was doing was on Tango & Cash (1989), when I had to dress up as a woman. It's not an acting chore I'd care to do again. I looked like a really ugly version of my mother, who happens to be beautiful. I don't get transvestism.
9(1996) Bull Durham (1988) is tough to talk about. (Director) Ronnie [Ron Shelton] and I both lived that life, there were a lot of things in there that were derivative of what had happened to me. I was surprised that Ronnie [did] it with somebody else. I went to Europe on a vacation, having said the script was great, and I came back to discover Kevin [Kevin Costner] was doing it. Ronnie got a better deal. So I pulled a practical joke on him that wiped the slate clean for me. I was working on Winter People (1989) about 60 miles from where he was doing Bull Durham (1988). I got on the phone, pretended to be [production chief] Mike Medavoy, ordered that Ronnie be pulled off the set, and I told him that the dailies were shit, the movie was shit and Costner was not working, "Here's what we're going to do",' I told him. "Kurt Russell's 60 miles north of you finishing Winter People (1989) tonight. He will be on the set Monday morning". There was this long pause until Ronnie realized who he was really talking to, and then he said, "You son of a bitch!" I had him going for a few minutes, though.
10(1996, on smoking marijuana) I never did, not until I was 32. I still don't understand the reason for smoking dope if you're not going to have sex. To me, drugs have no appeal other than sex.
11(1996) For me there's never been a woman more beautiful than Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca (1942).
12My generation couldn't stand me and I couldn't stand them. In high school I was to the right of being straight. I believed in the work ethic, making money, and they all had this beef with the nation. Vietnam disappointed me because we didn't win.
13You know, when Escape from New York (1981) first came out, a lot of people said, 'I don't quite understand this movie ... is this some kind of comment that, like, New York is a prison?' and years later a lot of people are saying, 'You know, New York is looking a lot like that movie.' In Escape from L.A. (1996), it's a story about a guy who just wants a cigarette. He just wants a cigarette! Everybody laughed back then because there was no red meat, no cigarettes in the movie. Well, look around! It's happening! You can barely smoke a cigarette anymore and although I quit smoking six months ago, the anti-smoking laws are enough to make me want to smoke!
14To go on about acting as art is ridiculous. If it is an art, then it's a very low form. You don't have to be gifted just to hit a mark and say a line. And as far as I'm concerned, hitting my marks and knowing my lines is 90% of the job. I'm always criticized for talking like that. Maybe the reason I do it is that I never got the chance to develop a real desire to act. I was acting by the time I was nine so it seemed like a natural thing to do. Anyone who finds acting difficult just shouldn't be doing it.
15I was brought up as a Republican. But when I realized that at the end of the day there wasn't much difference between a Democrat and Republican, I became a libertarian.
16[Talking about the fight scene with Ox Baker from Escape from New York (1981)]: "I remember Dick Warlock helped set up the fight and he came out with this big purple lump on the side of his head, and all he said to me was 'Keep your head down and be careful, man.'"
17If it hadn't been for video cassette, I may not have had a career at all.
18I seem to have a knack for picking movies that go on to be cult favorites.
19"If it ain't broke, don't fix it." (On why he won't marry Goldie Hawn)
