Plus his movie characters in “Election”, “Glory”, “The Godzilla” made a great contribution to Matthew Broderick’s net worth. Matthew Broderich also spoke as Simba in the classic Dysney movie “The Lion King”.

Broderick’s debut was the movie “Max Dugan Returns” in 1983. Later that year he got a part in a movie “WarGames”. It was a leading role that appeared to be a true success for Matthew and his long term career.

Matthew became a high-school student in the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and he was 23 years old. This is one of the best comedies of all time, especially liked by teenage viewers. He also took part as a gay lover in the “Torch Song Trilogy”. Matthew brought attention to himself after a spectacular performance along with Jim Carrey in “The Cable Guy”. Another glorious moment, along with a great salary, was brought by his character Alexander Payne, a teacher in “Election” with Reese Witherspoon.

During the shooting of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” in 1986 in Ireland, Matthew Broderick and his girlfriend Jennifer Grey had a car crash. Matthew and his friend had lots of injuries but survived. The two women from another car died instantly. Matthew was charged for five years in prison, but later he was sentenced to pay $175 fine. This accident has affected Matthew Broderick’s life and career for life. When Broderick played in the Honda CR-V commercial, the victims’ family in Ireland’s accident said that Broderick “wasn’t the greatest choice of drivers knowing his past”.

Matthew Broderick is married to an actress Sarah Jessica Parker. They married in 1997. Matthew and Sarah were united by Matthew’s sister Janet Broderick Kraft in a deconsecrated synagogue. Parker and Broderick have three kids, a son and two girl twins.

#Quote
1[on his car crash] I don't remember the day. I don't remember even getting up in the morning. I don't remember making my bed. What I first remember is waking up in the hospital, with a very strange feeling going on in my leg.
2I acquired fame by playing the coolest kid who ever lived. Now, the only roles I can seem to get are bleak, insecure men. I do find almost every character I play quite interesting, though.
3Before I knew it, I was like this guy in a hot play [Torch Song Trilogy]. And suddenly all these doors opened... It's just amazing. All these things have to line up that are out of your control.
4In a 1988 Premiere magazine article, Matthew talked about his love scene with his Torch Song Trilogy (1988) co-star Brian Kerwin. He said, "It was fun being romantic, sexy with a man.".
