He is also known for his independent film work, but all of his endeavors have helped put his net worth to where it is today.
How rich is Vincent Gallo? As of late-2016, sources estimate a net worth that is at $8 million, mostly earned through a successful career in film which began in the early ‘80s. He was part of “Buffalo ‘66” and “The Brown Bunny” which he wrote and directed. He’s also released solo recordings, and as he continues his career it is expected that his wealth will increase.
Vincent Gallo Net Worth $8 million
Vincent started off working as a painter and musician in New York City during the 1980s. This was also the same time that he started experimenting with films. He made several short films and also acted in “Downtown 81”. After appearing in the 1989 film “Doc’s Kingdom”, he started playing roles in well-known films such as “The House of the Spirits” and “The Perez Family”, and participated in several Claire Denis projects. His net worth was established.
Gallo made his directorial debut in the 1998 film “Buffalo ‘66”, which was nominated at the Independent Spirit Awards and earned significant amounts of money which helped increase his net worth. His next major project would be 2003’s “The Brown Bunny” which starred Chloe Sevigny, and which proved to be controversial due to several scenes, and gained a negative critical response. In 2010, Gallo became part of the film “Essential Killing” which earned him a Volpi Cup for Best Actor during the 67th Venice International Film Festival, though he did not appear during the awards ceremony. In 2012, he became part of the film “La leggendar di Kaspar Hauser” and one of his latest project’s is 2013’s “Human Trust”. His net worth continued to rise up at this point.
Aside from films, Gallo has also played with several bands as a bassist at several clubs in New York City. Some of his recordings were part of the film “Downtown 81” and he also wrote songs for the film “Buffalo 66” and then created his own album with Warp Records entitled “When”. One of his latest performances was in the 3rd Annual San Frandelic Summer Fest in San Francisco. He’s also directed music videos such as “Cosmopolitan Bloodloss” by Glassjaw, “Grounded” by My Vitriol, and “99 Problems” by Jay-Z. Gallo also modelled during the H&M Spring 2009 collection.
Other works he’s done include a fictional appearance in the book “The Eclectic Prince”, and he also completed a fashion campaign for G-Star Raw jeans, and is the HOA president at the Arts District loft in Los Angeles.
For his personal life, Vincent is ‘… not yet married, but available to all women…’. It is known that Vincent is a supporter of the Republican Party. He is also the godfather of Chris Squire’s son, also helping Chris create an autobiography.

Working on second directorial movie, The Brown Bunny (2003). Lives in NYC and L.A. [March 2002]
Was in an experimental noise band called Gray with New York artist Jean Michel Basquiat in the early 1980s. They played at all the most popular punk rock/new wave clubs in the city, including Max's Kansas City, CBGB's, and one (now famous) night at the Mudd Club. They broke up soon after and Basquiat became famous and several years after that Gallo would also become famous.

Dropped out of Sweet Home Central Schools, New York. 
Announced engagement to New York writer, Bethany Ritz. [April 1999]
Known for his multiple talents (filmmaker, actor, writer, musician, audio engineer, motorcycle racer), as well for his very conceptual and outspoken views and his radical, funny and original way of stating those views. A totally original one-of-a-kind person.
Steven Soderbergh sucks. He's just a guy who's sort of like...there's a whole group of guys who pretend to be making special fucking films who are just real players. Wes Anderson sucks. Spike Jonze sucks bad. James Gray sucks.
Drugs and alcohol cloud your mind. When you drink, you do things you wouldn't do as sober. And that's why most people drink... O.K., but it doesn't interest me.
[on Spike Jonze] He's the biggest fraud out there. If you bring him to a party he's the least interesting person at the party, he's the person who doesn't know anything. He's the person who doesn't say anything funny, interesting, intelligent. He's a pig piece of shit.
I wouldn't work for Martin Scorsese for $10 million. He hasn't made a good film in 25 years. I would never work with an egomaniac has-been.
Sofia Coppola likes any guy who has what she wants. If she wants to be a photographer she'll fuck a photographer. If she wants to be a filmmaker, she'll fuck a filmmaker. She's a parasite just like her fat, pig father was.
[on Argentina]: This country sucks. If I drop a banana here, everyone kills for it.
I've never been a popular person, but it doesn't matter. I have everything in my life that I want. I'm not a walking publicity stunt. I'm not an anarchist, or bitter. I'm not trying to be subversive. I just try to remain unguarded, unprotected by fear, and agents and publicists, and I feel comfortable that way.
I sold The Brown Bunny camera package because I had organized it so methodically, so precisely, that I couldn't let anyone touch it, scratch it, or break it up. I just had to get it out of my life. The package was sold to Sage Stallone who's one of my favorite people in this whole world, one of the smartest, young, goofy kids I've ever known in my whole life. So it went to the right person
I feel very happy that Bush is our president. One way that you can tell we have a good president, is by how much the French dislike him. The more the French hate him, the better he must be. And they hate this one.
I became an actor, because of Danny Bonaduce on the "Partridge Family". He's tremendous, so funny and brilliant, and we seemed around the same age, I felt I should be on a show with him. We could have done a good spin-off, "the Danny Bonaduce, Vinnie Gallo show", da-da-da-da- da di da da.
My parents took an interest in nothing, at home no books, no records. My mother and my father are the emblem of indifference, dryness and bad taste. My father is also terribly stingy, in life as well as in feelings: I have never seen him filling up the bathtub. To save, he used to put the water 4 inches from the bottom. At home everything was ugly, casual, lacking in love, from furniture to clothes, to behaviors...
The good thing about bicycling is that, since I'm a public figure, I don't have to interact with people. If I walk from here to West Broadway, 50 people will stop me. On my bike, I can just wave. More public figures should ride bikes. It's a good way to deal with people.
I did my first job as an actor and my first role was in 1978 in Rome. I did a play with an Italian actor named Victor Cavallo who worked with Bernardo Bertolucci. After that I was very much a part of the New York performance art and underground theater and movie scene, so it's been quite awhile. But always very peripheral.
"Well, if you want to be an actor, move to a major city, either in L.A. or N.Y. and every day do as many things as you possibly can to reach that goal. But make sure that goal is set so high, that if you reach one-tenth of the goal, you've gone a long ways. Fantasize and believe that you could star in a 100 Oscar-winning movies, and just work for that every day. Let's face it, most people want to be actors because they want unconditional love and power and money and to be able to act out a character fantasy that involves themselves.
I'm so in love with the United States. Not as a patriot. I'm in love with America like it's my first girlfriend. The geography, the people, the smell, the touch, the taste, the gas stations. I'm madly in love with America. Madly in love. And I was the guy that people used to say, "He's so European." I mean, I never felt like that. I don't relate to those monkeys. I just can't relate to them. I'm a super American--Captain America.
I'm not an artist, I'm a hustler. As a hustler I've done many things. You should really believe it when I tell you that, 'cause I'm not being sarcastic. I'm a total hustler. What that means is I've hustled to make a buck and I've hustled to change the world and I've hustled to take revenge - but it's always hustling. I've never had a career or a single goal. I've never been formally educated. To get things together, to make a living, I constantly have to hustle.
I told you, I'm an extremist. Even in art, if my work wasn't 50 times more interesting than me and my petty life, it would be useless.
I never wanted to be an actor. I never want to be an actor. I want to be a movie star. The whole idea of having to act is too gruesome. It's too ambitious for me.
I don't drink any coffee or take any drugs and I don't smoke cigarettes and I don't eat sugar and I don't take any medicine at all. I eat a lot of fish, vegetables, and I stay away from starches. I'm not so sure my eating behavior is responsible. I look like someone who takes drugs, so I refuse to take even aspirin in order to contradict my appearance. But I like the color brown. Oh, and I don't eat dairy. And I sure do like the color brown.
Early in elementary school I had a very small moment where I had a different face - a little nose, straight, blond hair. I had a lot of response, from older women and little girls. But at some point when I transformed into a less [attractive] person, I decided to push away my feelings, to protect myself in order to avoid rejection.
There's nothing self-gratifying about knowing you've played a performance where people may easily dislike the character and associate it with you. There's nothing fun about having people suspicious about why you're making work. I'm clearly not networking or making a bid for popularity. I'm following another motivation, and it's not as a provocateur. It's because I'm blinded, like an idiot, by wanting to preserve and express an insight that I have, or an aesthetic that I believe in. I forget that people react to me personally as the representative of that. Did you see a credit for hair and makeup? How can I be a narcissist? I've never even had hair and makeup done for me on a film. I don't even know what I look like as I'm filming. - on being called a narcissist.
I'm the happiest the saddest guy in the world can be.
I don't trust or love anyone. Because people are so creepy. Creepy creepy creeps. Creeping around. Creeping here and creeping there. Creeping everywhere. Crippity crappity creepies.
I stopped painting in 1990 at the peak of my success just to deny people my beautiful paintings. And I did it out of spite.
