Nick Nolte Net Worth, Wiki & Biography in 2017

Nicholas King Nolte was born on 8 September 1941 in Omaha, Nebraska USA, of German, English, Scottish and Swiss-German descent. Nick Nolte is an actor, comedian, voice actor and model. A remarkable, and somewhat iconic actor for his variety of roles, Nick is probably most remembered for his roles in such films as “The Deep” and “The Thin Red Line”, unsurprisingly he is regarded as one of the wealthier actors.

So the question arises: how rich is Nick Nolte? Currently, Nick Nolte’s estimated net worth is $75 million, proving that he has been financially successful in the acting industry. Nolte has accumulated most of his wealth from his lengthy acting career during which he has starred in almost 80 movies and appeared in over 20 television shows.

Nick Nolte Net Worth $75 Million

Before his film career began, in the 1960s and 1970s Nolte used to model for magazines, and even appeared in an advertisement for Clairol’s “Summer Blonde” hair lightener in 1972. Nick began his film career rather late in life, being 35 when he debuted in the ABC’s miniseries “Rich Man, Poor Man”, while his first major film role was “The Deep” (1977) in which he starred alongside Jacqueline Bisset and Robert Shaw.

In 1982, Nolte appeared in the highly popular movie “48Hours” together with Eddie Murphy, which had a significant impact on Nolte’s career, as well as his net worth and resulted in a sequel entitled “Another 48 Hours”. However, Nolte’s greatest box office success came in 1991 when he portrayed the role of Tom Wingo in “The Prince of Tides” with Barbra Streisand and received his first nomination for an Academy Award for Best Actor. The same year Nolte received the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor and starred in Martin Scorsese’s” Cape Fear” together with Robert De Niro and Jessica Lange. Nolte continued his acting career with remarkably successful appearances in “Lorenzo’s Oil” (1992), “Afterglow” (1997), and “Affliction” (1997) with James Coburn, for which he received a nomination for an Academy Award.

In the early 2000’s, Nick Nolte’s acting career was overshadowed by his legal issues, when he was arrested for driving under influence (DUI) and put on a three-year probation. However, he soon made a solid comeback with such movies as “The Good Thief” in 2003, “Hotel Rwanda” in 2004, and the 2008 comedy starring Robert Downey Jr, Jack Black and Ben Stiller, “Tropic Thunder”.

In 2011, Nolte starred in the movie “Warrior” and received Oscar, BAFTA, and Screen Writers Guild nominations for Best Actor for this role. A year later he appeared in HBO’s TV show “Luck” alongside Dustin Hoffman, but unfortunately the show was cancelled after only one season.

Nick also increased his net worth by successfully voicing characters in animations such as “Over the Hedge” and “The Spiderwick Chronicles”

A legendary actor with an impressive net worth of $75 million, Nick Nolte has been publicly recognized and received many nominations, among them Golden Globe Award, Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award, Primetime Emmy Award and others.

Nick Nolte’s personal life is far from ordinary: he has three ex-wives: Sheila Page(1966-1970), Sharyn Haddad(1978-1983), and Rebecca Linger(1984-1994) with whom he has a son, and had relationships with actress Debra Winger and voice actress Vicki Lewis. Nick has been in a partnership with Clytie Lane since 2003, with whom he has a daughter, and they reside in Malibu, California.

#Quote
1[on Katharine Hepburn] She is a legend. But once you get past that, she's just a kind of cranky old broad who's a lot of fun.
2[on receiving an Oscar nomination for his role in Warrior (2011)] I put up boundaries at the beginning with Gavin [Gavin O'Connor]. I said, "I don't think I should associate with the actors, with the boys. I should stay away from them." There's a kind of familiarity that happens if you're out drinking with the boys and that kind of thing. It makes the work a little more difficult.
3[2011, on turning 70] When you start thinking about death more than sex, you know you're getting old. At 70, you crest that hill. In the sixties, you're still thinking you could do something about this slow disintegration of the body. As Katharine Hepburn used to say to me: "Aging, Nick, is boring." Now I know what she means.
4I never felt comfortable in real life very well. It's always been an awkward kind of thing for me and so when I hit the stage I just sensed freedom. I sensed here's a place that I can have all the experiences of life and not feel uncomfortable about it.
5If you feel you have a film that's valid, you stick your ass on the line.
6There's always a bit of catharsis in filmmaking in general, in the arts. We're really all alone. We can't ever get inside another person's spirit, and see the world they do. So we are alone in that sense. The only way we have to communicate feelings is through words. I became obsessed about that.
7There's an understanding about addiction. It's just learning about yourself. Either things are tough and you detach yourself or it becomes an experiment and a lifestyle. The thing about addiction is that you don't feel things. It's about cutting the pain off, whether it's physical or psychological.
8I didn't stay in a popular vein. I never really got stamped like that. I worked very hard to keep changing my image.
9You convince yourself you can fix the screenplay, because there's a lot of money involved. But you can never make it work. If the script has a hole in it, it will always have that hole.
10There's nothing in the United States to do except the independents. Certainly not in the studios. It's a situation where films are made for $100m and they knock out all competition. Their audiences are eight to 20. It feels silly being a 60-plus year-old man in those films, which are basically cartoons and high technology.
11America is in a difficult position right now. It has so much wealth, it has become obese and gluttonous. It will change but it has to get through this time now. It's not that I wish I was not from America. It just goes through these peculiar times. I could live anywhere. But I wouldn't want to abandon a country just because it's being silly. I'll do what we did in 1968, and try and change it and get some sense into it.
12I've made a lot of mistakes and I don't regret any of them. Sometimes, that's the only way you learn.
13Early on, I decided that I was going to lie to the press. The best approach to talking about my personal life was to lie.
14[at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival, on the "obscene" amounts being paid to actors] It's sick. I want nothing to do with it.
