Leelee Sobieski Net Worth $3 million

Sobieski was born into a family familiar with Hollywood, as her mother is a producer and her father was an actor. She attended Trevor Day School and after matriculating went to Brown University, graduating with a degree in literature and fine art.

Her acting career started when she was scouted as a potential candidate for “Interview with the Vampire”. The role was, however, given to Kirsten Dunst, and so one of her first appearances would be in the television movie “Reunion”. She then appeared in the film “Jungle 2 Jungle” alongside Tim Allen and Martin Short. Sobieski would gain recognition after becoming part of the hit movie “Deep Impact”, which would lead to more opportunities for her. She was then cast in “A Soldier’s Daughter Never Cries” which was critically acclaimed and got her a Young Artist Award nomination. In 1999, she became part of the supporting cast for “Never Been Kissed”, and was then cast in “Eyes Wide Shut”, which had good reviews but also had a lot of controversy due to the nature of the film’s sex scenes. In the same year she was cast in “Joan of Arc”, and this performance earned her several nominations – she became the youngest actress to ever portray Joan of Arc in a movie. Her net worth benefited considerably.

In 2001, Leelee was cast in the horror film “Joy Ride” alongside Paul Walker, and it received good reviews, and then appeared in “The Glass House” which didn’t do well at the box office. She redeemed her reputation in “My First Mister” which got great reviews despite its low budget. She continued her work on television, becoming a part of “Les Liasons Dangereuses” and “Hercules”. In 2006, she appeared in “The Wicker Man” alongside Nicolas Cage but the movie didn’t do well at the box office or among critics. After making a few more independent films, Sobieski was cast in “88 Minutes” which starred Al Pacino, a minor box office success but failing critically. In 2008, she became a part of “In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale” which was rated one of the worst films of the year; she received a Razzle Award nomination for Worst Supporting Actress. The following year, she appeared in “Public Enemies”, and one of her latest projects is “The Good Wife” in which she made a guest appearance.

For her personal life it is known that, Sobieski was married to Matthew Davis(2008-09) and has been married to fashion designer Adam Kimmel since 2010, with whom she has two children. She also speaks fluent French and credits learning the language to her father who lives in France. In 2012, Sobieski moved away from acting projects to focus on being a mom and in 2016, it was reported that she had no current interest in returning to acting.

Quotes

#Quote
1This girl at 17 really led an army, this girl at 19 really burned at the stake by her own choice. And you sit there and you want to figure out why did she make these choices? How did she live such a life?
2When I had my daughter, Louisanna, two and a half years ago, I started recording every funny or sweet thing she said or did on my phone.
3I always get scared of traffic cops when I'm driving, like I freak out even when I'm not doing anything wrong. I still think they're going to pull me over and arrest me.
4I guess because it feels more open, but I think being married is way sexier, because it's really like your soul partner in a permanent fashion, and then you strive for it to be something permanent, and that type of commitment and trust, if you can achieve it, is so good for the soul.
5I think when you're doing a lead role, there is so much more pressure. If you fail, not only do you fail, but everybody else fails, too. As opposed to when it's a supporting role and it's only you that sucked.
6Now when I see something beautiful or funny or sweet, sometimes I reach for my camera, but other times I think, 'I need to let this moment exist. I don't have to capture everything. I just want to experience it.'
7I've never played anybody like a cop before.
8I've never scratched, or punched, or slapped anybody in my real life.
9I, like many people, am constantly on my phone.
10If only I could find a guy who wasn't in his 70s to talk to me about white cranes, I'd be madly in love.
11Sometimes, taking a job is like going to a shrink or something, where you get to know yourself better.
12I go short and sweet on the engagement. I did have a longish engagement, but I think short and sweet is best.
13I heard someone say the other day that they thought it was sexier to call someone their fiancé instead of their husband or wife.
14I live in New York and it's the greatest city, but sometimes I want to move to the place with the porch and the lemonade and the farm.
15I text my girlfriends. I look at Facebook. I check my e-mail. If I'm away from the news cycle more than a few hours, I feel out of touch.
16I think people really don't like cops so much; they're kind of rude to them or treat them like they can't see them.
17I'm a hopeless romantic with a dirty mind.
18I was being honest - I have nothing to hide. All I do, all the time, with everybody, is tell them what I am thinking, what I am feeling.
19I did try to get a few of those teen high-school movies, but they just didn't like me. I guess I wasn't a certain type.
20I'm open to whatever is meant to be, it will be.
21Honestly, ever since I've been married, the part of a job as an actress where you have to kiss other people, I find totally bizarre.
