Rooney Mara's Net Worth

Rooney Mara is a really interesting actress and an even more interesting person. She’s known for her philanthropy. She’s also known for her engagement to actor Joaquin Phoenix, with whom she has a son. Plus, of course, she’s known for her films, which include Oscar nominees for her roles in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Carol.” So what is Rooney Mara’s net worth?

Who Is Rooney Mara?

According to her IMDB bio, she was born Patricia Rooney Mara in April 1985 in New York. Her family has some well-known people in it. Many are known in the world of sports. For example, her great-grandpa Art Rooney founded the Pittsburgh Steelers. Her grandfather Wellington Mara co-owns The Giants. But her family has made waves in other areas as well. Her grand-uncle Dan Rooney was an Ambassador to Ireland. Cousins Tom and Patric Rooney are US and state representatives respectively. Her sister Kate Mara, two years older than Rooney, is an actress. In fact, seeing her acting career is what inspired Rooney to try acting,

Rooney Mara’s Many Interests

Although she did obviously end up pursing an acting career, Rooney Mara wasn’t sure that she could develop a good net worth in this field. She considered a lot of other options. Right after high school she spent four months traveling in South America to learn more about the world. Then she went to college, getting a degree in international social policy psychology and nonprofit organizations from New York University. She graduated in 2010. However, she had already started to pursue acting while in college.

Rooney Mara’s Acting Career

Obviously, Rooney Mara’s net worth now comes from her acting career. She began auditioning when she was about 19, and she was immediately a hit. In her earliest movies, she went by the names Patricia Mara or Tricia Mara. However, after a few years she started going by her middle name instead. In 2005, she appeared alongside her sister in “Urban Legends: Bloody Mary”, thus launching her acting career. Over the next few years she appeared on TV episodes for series including “Law and Order: SVU,” “Women’s Murder Club,” “The Cleaner,” and “ER.”

In 2007 she auditioned for a supporting role in the film “Tanner Hall.” However, the director fell in love with her and asked her to re-audition, this time for the lead. She was cast in the lead and the movie came out in 2009. She received several awards for that role. In 201o, she was cast as the lead in “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” Credits following that role include:

  • “The Social Network” in 2010
  • “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” in 2011
  • “Side Effects” and “Her” in 2013
  • “Carol” in 2015
  • 3 films plus a voice role in 2016 (the voice role was for “Kubo and the Two Strings”
  • “Mary Magdalene” in 2018
  • “Nightmare Alley” which is a 2021 release
  • “Women Talking” which is in post-production for a 2022 release

Rooney Mara’s Awards

Rooney Mara’s net worth isn’t directly tied to her awards. But, of course, the more recognized an actress is, the higher rates she gets paid. IMDB reports that in addition to her two Oscar nominees mentioned above, she has 65 nominations and 27 wins from a variety of different awards organizations. A handful of her winning awards include:

  • AACTA International Awards Best Supporting Actress for “Carol.” She also received several other awards for this role including Best Actress from the Cannes Film Festival.
  • Alliance of Women Film Journalists Kick Ass Award for Best Female Action Star for “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”. She also received the Golden Schmoes Awards for Best Actress of the Year for this film.
  • Gen Art Film Festival Emerging Actress Award for “Tanner Hall”
  • In 2013, she received the LA Femme International Film Festival Best Feature Director award for “The Truth About Emanuel.” That’s right; she’s done some directing as well.

Rooney Mara’s Personal Life

We’ve discussed her family of origin, but now let’s talk about her adult personal life. She dated producer / director Charlie McDowell for about 6 years ending in 2016. While they were dating, she met Joaquin Phoenix on the set of “Her.” However, it wasn’t until 2018 that they began to spend a lot of time together. According to Celebrity Net Worth, they worked together that year on the sets of “Mary Magdalene” and “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot,” as well as on the animal rights documentary titled “Dominion.”

The two bgan dating and soon after got engaged, although so far it doesn’t seem that a marriage has taken place. They did, however, have their first son in September 2020. They named him River in honor of Joaquin’s well-known actor brother who died of a drug overdose outside The Viper Room in his early twenties.

Rooney Mara’s Global Concerns

Both Mara and Phoenix are longtime vegetarian/vegans. They’ll educate River about the same but will allow him to make his own choices when it comes to food. Mara is quoted in Vanity Fair as saying that having River has made her even more concerned about the world, adding, “I feel so fortunate to be able to nurture my son in all of the ways that nature intended and I wish all mothers in the animal kingdom could experience that sacred maternal bond with their young, devoid of exploitation by humans.”

Mara’s family has long been known for various philanthropic efforts. For her part, her IMDB profile reports that she founded Faces of Kibera. After all, although Rooney Mara’s net worth comes from her acting, we know that her education is in non-profit organization. Faces of Kibera provides a variety off care to orphans living in the Kibra district of Kenya, Nairobi.

Some off Rooney Mara’s net worth also comes from a vegan clothing line she started called Hiraeth Collective. Although it’s for-profit, it’s obviously animal-conscious. She launched this business in 2018.

Rooney Mara’s Net Worth

So, Rooney Mara makes her money off of her films and her vegan clothing line. She also likely has family money. The Things reports that she and her sister Kate are heirs to “two multi-billion dollar NFL dynasties.”

Since she and Joaquin Phoenix are not married, they do not share net worth. So what is Rooney Mara’s net worth? Celebrity Net Worth places it at $16 million. The Things reports that combined with her sister, they have a net worth of $26 million. However, when you combine their whole family together, their net worth climbs to a whopping $3 billion. Of course that’s spread out with their two brothers, more than 20 aunts and uncles, 40+ cousins, etc.

George Takei’s Net Worth

George Takei's Net Worth

Chances are that if you know George Takei’s name right off the bat then it’s because you’re a fan of “Star Trek: The Original Series.” He played Hikaru Sulu, a role people have long loved him for. However, he’s actually had a very diverse career, mostly (but not entirely) in acting. So let’s take a look at his career. Then let’s figure out George Takei’s net worth.

Who Is George Takei?

George Takei has one of the most comprehensive IMDB profiles we’ve seen. Therefore, if you want to learn more about him, check out his full bio there. To get you started, though, we’ll give you an overview. He was born in 1937 in Los Angeles, California to Japanese-American parents. Unfortunately, Pearl Harbor happened not too long after that, and his family was forced to move to an internment camp in Arkansas. From there they eventually moved to a second camp in Northern California. This experience shaped Takei’s life, and he has been known as much for his activism as for his acting.

In fact, he didn’t originally intend to become an actor. He started out studying architecture at Berkeley. However, while there, he got a summer job dubbing Japanese characters into English for “Rodan.” He immediately discovered that he loved acting. As a result, he transferred to UCLA and majored in theater.

George Takei’s Acting Experience

The dubbing work he’d done at MGM led him to meet an agent. Once in LA, he tapped that connection. He was quickly cast in small roles, starting with an appearance on the TV series “Playhouse 90.” That same year, 1959, he was in four other television and film roles, including an appearance on “Perry Mason.” He continued to appear in various roles, including some recurring television roles, over the next decade, while also continuing his education and eventually getting a Master’s degree.

“Star Trek: The Original Series”

As aforementioned, he’s often best known for his role as Hikaru Sulu in “Star Trek: The Original’s Series.” “Star Trek” is well-known as a series that embraced diversity in its casting. Takei was specifically sought out to increase the racial diversity of the cast for the pilot episode. He went on to appear in more than fifty episodes of the show from 1966-1969.

During those years he continued to take on other small acting roles, including an appearance on “Mission Impossible.” He’s also known for his role as Captain Nimbuses in 1968’s “The Green Berets.”

His “Star Trek” role might have ended in 1969. However, just four years later, “Star Trek: The Animated Series” came along. He voiced his character in nearly two dozen episodes.

Later, he would go on to join the cast of the first six “Star Trek” movies. The series has obviously been a big part of George Takei’s net worth.

Beyond “Star Trek”

If you take a look at Takei’s IMDB filmography list, you’ll see he’s got more than 200 acting credits to his name. He’s consistently taken on television and feature film roles pretty much every year since he began acting. In addition to traditional acting, he’s also done a lot of voice acting for animated work. Moreover, he’s done some voice work for video games.

Some of the roles he spent the most time in include:

  • 2020’s “Love Monster” as the voice of Elder Panda
  • King Toshi in Elena of Avalor
  • 2019’s “The Terror”
  • Recurring roles over the years on “The Simpsons” and “Futurama”
  • Grandfather on the TV show “The Neighbors”
  • Kaito Nakamura on the TV show “Heroes”
  • Voice of Sensei on “Kim Possible”

Some of the other shows and movies he’s worked on that you might recognize include:

  • “The Twilight Zone”
  • “Robot Chicken”
  • “Fresh Off the Boat”
  • “Kubo and the Two Strings”
  • “True Justice”
  • “The Super Hero Squad”
  • “The Big Bang Theory”

He also transitioned seamlessly from “Star Trek” over to “Star Wars.” First, he appeared in an episode of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” in 2009. Then in this year he did a voice part for “Star Wars: Visions.”

Beyond His Acting Career

Obviously, most of George Takei’s net worth comes from acting. He’s clearly a very prolific actor. Oh, and he’s also appeared in a lot of television commercials over the years.

However, somehow he’s found time to do other things with his life as well. He’s authored a number of books, including graphic novels and an autobiography.

Celebrity Net Worth points out that he’s also done work on Broadway. He began stage work in 1961 with “Fly Blackbird!” Over the years he appeared in “Aladdin,” “Equus,” and “8.” From 2012 – 2016, he took to the stage in “Allegiance,” a musical based on his own experiences in those internment camps.

Activism and Politics

Also, as aforementioned, he’s also known for his activism. He’s taken an interest in politics over the years. IMDB reports that he hosted a “public affairs” show in the early 1970s. Around this same time, he ran for office with LA City Council, using by just a small number of votes. However, the mayor appointed him to the Southern California Rapid Transit Distract board of directors where he served for about a decade.

His Amazon bio and Celebrity Net Worth report that following roles and achievements

  • LA’s Japanese American National Museum trustee and chairman emeritus; they awarded him a Distinguished Medal of Honor for Lifetime Achievement and Public Service in 2015
  • Human Rights Campaign “Coming Out Project” spokesperson
  • Japanese American Citizens League cultural affairs chairman
  • The Japanese government gave him an award for his work with the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission
  • The American Humanist Association gave him the 2012 LGBT Humanist Award
  • He has an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from California State University
  • There’s an asteroid named after him in honor of the social justice work that he’s done throughout his lifetime.

He’s also earned various film festival awards, a Webby, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Personal Life

George Takei married his husband Brad (who took the actor’s last name) in 2008. They had been together for more than two decades when California’s marriage laws changed, allowing them to marry. Celebrity Net Worth reports that they had a Buddhist ceremony at the Japanese American National Museum. They live together in Los Angeles. Wealthy Gorilla reports that they bought the home in 1996 for $610,000. It’s not on the market but imagine what it would be worth today!

George Takei’s Net Worth

It’s hard to even fathom a guess as to what George Takei’s net worth must be, isn’t it? He’s appeared in so many different shows and movies over the years. He’s narrated audio books, hosted various shows, and authored his own works. Each of those has contributed to his income over the past six decades of his career.

Celebrity Net Worth and Wealthy Gorilla both place George Takei’s net worth at about $14 million.

Luis Arturo Villar Sudek’s Net Worth

Luis Arturo Villar Sudek's Net Worth

You can make a lot of money off of YouTube. However, it’s not easy. It usually takes a combination of persistence, unique personality, internet marketing know-how, and a little bit of luck. With those things in place, though, you just might have a chance. For example, let’s take a look at Luis Arturo Villar Sudek’s net worth. You might know him better as YouTuber Luisito Comunica.

Who is Luis Arturo Villar Sudek?

If you know him, then it’s probably from his Spanish YouTube channel Luisito Comunica. In fact, people often know him better by that name than by his given name. He’s a Mexican YouTube personality, originally from Puebla but eventually relocating to Mexico City.

InfoBae reports that he was born in 1991. Before becoming a famous YouTuber, he held various jobs. For example, his grandfather had a tailor’s shop that he worked in. He also taught high school English, was a camp counselor and appeared as an extra in films.

Today, he has more than 37 million subscribers on the Luisito Comunica channel alone. This means he has more subscribers than any other YouTube channel in Mexico. However, this isn’t his only YouTube channel. And YouTube isn’t the only thing that he does for work.

Before Luisito Comunica

Obviously, most of Luis Arturo Villar Sudek’s net worth comes from his Luisito Comunica YouTube channel. However, it took time for him to achieve that level of success. This was not his first YouTube channel.

Wikipedia reports that he launched his first YouTube channel in 2007. It was a channel of piano song covers and tutorials. First, he named it Piano Para Gente Cool. Later he renamed it LouieArtie. Unfortunately, it wasn’t particularly successful under either name.

Four years later, he decided to launch a daily life YouTube channel. This one he called OciodeLuisito. He kept at that one for about two years. It has about 160K followers today. Most of his videos have received somewhere between 100K and 250K views. However, his last video upload on that channel, titled “PERREO INCÓMODO (Al Volante),” received more than 2 million views.

While he was still working on that channel, he also joined a collaborative YouTube team. Called NoMeRevientes, the Spanish channel is run by Yayo Gutierrez. Gutierrez is well-known for promoting Mexican YouTubers. The NoMeRevientes group reaped some of those benefits. Clearly, Luisito Comunica did well for himself to join this crew.

Luisito Comunica YouTube Channel

While still collaborating with that group, Luis Arturo Villar Sudek finally launched Luisito Comunica in 2012. He had figured out some of the kinks of the platform. Moreover, networking with others worked for him. As a result, he finally started to see YouTube success. This was where Luis Arturo Villar Sudek’s net worth finally began to grow. He had found his niche.

Luisito Comunica is a Spanish-language YouTube channel. Luis travels around the world, uploading videos of his trips. So, it’s a travel channel with that personal twist. Obviously, people love it. 37 million of them and counting in fact.

Luisito Comunica in English

Eventually, he realized that he might be able to grow further if he could appeal to an English-speaking audience. Therefore, in 2018, he launched another YouTube channel. Titled “Luisito Around the World,” it’s similar to Luisito Comunica except that it’s in English. If you’re interested in travel content and you missed out on the craze of this YouTuber because you don’t know Spanish, then this channel could lead you to love him.

Other Income and Endeavors

Obviously, you can make money on YouTube. However, as any good Internet celebrity knows, you’re wiser if you diversify your income streams. It’s not just enough to have multiple YouTube channels either. In order to grow Luis Arturo Villar Sudek’s net worth even more, he had to branch out. He’s not shy about trying new things.

His recent endeavors over the past few years include:

  • Launched the Rey Paloma clothing line in 2018.
  • Appeared in a film called “Dedicada a mi ex” in 2019.
  • Also dubbed the Latin American Spanish version of “Sonic the Hedgehog,” which caused a bunch of controversies as many Sonic fans said they didn’t want someone who wasn’t a professional voice actor to dub the part!
  • Published a book called “Amazing Places” in 2019. It discusses the best places he’s been, what the culture is like there, etc. In other words, he took the things that made his YouTube channel successful then turned them into book format.
  • Appeared in the COVID-19 themed documentary titled “Aislado: un documental en cuarentena” in 2020.
  • Launched his own cell phone company called PilloFon in 2020. It’s currently available in Mexico. However, he hopes to expand service to the rest of North America soon.
  • According to IMDB, he’s also hosted several shows, including 2020’s Mexico Spotify Awards.

As you can see, he’s been working hard to try new things while growing his income. Although known as a YouTuber, he’s also active on other social media. His Instagram account has more than 28 million followers. He also has about 8 million on Twitter.

What Is Luis Arturo Villar Sudek’s Net Worth?

InfoBae reports that as of May 2021, Luisito Comunica earns about $160,000 per year on YouTube ad income alone. Combined with all of his other sources of income, the source further reports that he earns about $4 million per year. Much of that still comes from YouTube. As a YouTube travel influencer, he’s frequently paid by sponsors that he features in his videos.

Pinning down Luis Arturo Villar Sudek’s net worth has been a little bit difficult. NetWorthSpot explains that there are a lot of predictions out there on the web about it. However, no one has been able to come up with concrete numbers. On that particular site, they determine that a good estimate is between $19.79 million and $27.71 million. However, those numbers are a lot higher than most sites predict:

  • YouTubers.me says it’s between $2.49 million and $14.9 million
  • YouNetworth puts it closer to $6 million
  • Statsmash predicts about $10 million

On the other hand, some sites actually predict higher numbers than NetWorthSpot. For example, Celeb Networth estimates that Luis Arturo Villar Sudek’s net worth is between $22 – 33 million.

As you can see, his net worth really isn’t clear. With as many endeavors as he’s got going on right now, we’d guess that an estimate of around $21 million might be close to the right answer.

Brendan Fraser’s Net Worth

Brendan Fraser's Net Worth

Brendan Fraser’s net worth is one of the more interesting topics we get to cover here on Plunged in Debt. This is due partly to the fact that he significantly lost much of his net worth in recent years. Nevertheless, he’s also made a bunch of headlines in 2021. Therefore, it’s an ever-changing story that’s intriguing to follow.

Who is Brendan Fraser?

Brendan Fraser is an American actor born in Indiana to Canadian parents. He moved frequently throughout his early years, spending time in places as diverse as Detroit, Seattle, London, and Rome. While in London, he discovered that he loved theatre. As a result, he decided to study the medium at a Seattle art school. After that, he began to slowly make a name for himself as an actor. If you’re only vaguely familiar with him then it’s probably from his leading role in “George of the Jungle” or some of his other well-known roles in “Encino Man,” “Crash,” or “The Mummy.”

Brendan Fraser’s Film and TV Credits

If you take a look at his full body of acting credits over on IMDB, then you’ll see that he began in 1991 with three TV movie appearances. That same year he was in River Phoenix’s “Dogfight,” albeit in a small role. That led to enough attention that the following year he was in “Encino Man” as well as “School Ties.” He continued to play lots of small and supporting roles, working in several movies, and occasionally on TV shows over the next five years or so.

In 1997, he got the leading role in “George of the Jungle,” which people consider his real breakout moment as an actor. Then came “The Mummy” in 1999, and, of course, “The Mummy Returns” a couple of years later. If you’re a fan of the series, then you know that he was in additional sequels, as well as the voice in related video games, in 2004 and 2008. This would not be the only time his acting would cross over into video games. He performed in “Journey to the Center of the Earth, ” which also had a related video game.

Brendan Fraser’s Work on the Small Screen

Brendan Fraser’s net worth grew steadily in large part to his prolific work. He wasn’t always the star of the show, but he consistently appeared in at least one, and usually many, roles per year. He worked mostly in film, sometimes uncredited. However, he also made TV appearances in “Fallen Angels,” “The Simpsons,” “King of the Hill,” “Scrubs,” and “The Fairly Odd Parents.”

In more recent years, he’s been particularly active on the small screen. In the past six years, he’s had recurring roles on:

  • “Texas Rising”
  • “The Affair”
  • “Trust”
  • “Condor”
  • “Professionals”
  • “Doom Patrol”

Why Brendan Fraser Switched To The Small Screen

Brendan Fraser’s net worth wasn’t the reason he made the switch to TV. Instead, he felt compelled to get out of Hollywood for much more serious reasons. GQ explains a series of events that led to changes in his career. First of all, he was playing a lot of high-action intense figures in his movies. It was great for the screen but unfortunately terrible for his body. He required multiple surgeries as well as a break from this type of work.

In happier things, he got married to Afton Smith in 1998. They had three children together. And although they divorced about a decade later, this was a time worth spending with family.

Blacklisted From Hollywood?

Then comes the real hard part, the real reason he just needed to get away from Hollywood. In 2003, he was molested by Philip Berk, former head of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. He didn’t speak about it for years, didn’t know how to speak about it or deal with it. So, in a lot of ways, he just avoided Hollywood. Even 15 years later, he couldn’t say it to the GQ article writer in person. Instead, he phoned him after the initial interview to reveal this information.

Since that time, Fraser has opened up a lot more about the experience. He’s written a memoir that discusses it. The New York Times did an article. And as more and more people (mostly women) have come forward in Hollywood to discuss the prevalence of this problem, he’s become more capable of discussing it. He explains that his disappearance from Hollywood was two-fold. On one hand, he was dealing with trauma and depression, and he didn’t want to put himself back into that scene.

On the other hand, when he tried to get help from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and others in the industry, he felt a lack of support. GQ reports that invites to the Golden Globes stopped. Philip Berk, who denies the allegations, continues to appear at the Golden Globes. But in recent years, many in the industry have started to shun him in support of Fraser. And according to Pop, there’s a whole Tik Tok movement supporting Fraser that’s enough to bring the actor to tears.

The prolific actor did continue to appear in small parts every year after the incident and up until the present time. And soon he found his niche in TV shows for a time.

Upcoming New Work from Brendan Fraser

Brendan Fraser’s net worth took a nosedive during those tough years. However, he’s had a lot of time to process. Equine therapy, time with his family, time away from Hollywood, and years of personal growth have made him ready to make movies again. And he’s got a lot on his plate.

Pop explains that he’s playing the main character in “Whale.” This is a serious film about a 600-pound man who binge eats due to guilt. He’s attempting to connect with his estranged daughter. This is obviously a more serious role than many he’s played in the past. Perhaps that’s perfectly right for someone who is older now and who has been through so much.

Other recent and upcoming films are, “No Sudden Move,” “Behind the Curtain of Night,” “Killers of the Flower Moon,” (currently filming), and “Brothers,” which is in pre-production. “Killers of the Flower Moon” is a Scorsese film also starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro. We don’t know the numbers behind what he’s paid for these new films. However, a lot of people are excited about Brendan Fraser’s comeback to the big screen. Therefore, Brendan Fraser’s net worth should be on the rise again.

Brendan Fraser’s Net Worth, Income, and Assets

Celebrity Net Worth currently reports Brendan Fraser’s net worth at about $20 million. The Things explains that he used to be worth more than twice that.

Examples of What Fraser Earns on Movies

Celebrity Net Worth reports the following specific earnings:

  • $1.6 million for “The Scout” in 1994
  • $4 million for both “Duddley Do-Right” and “The Mummy” in 1999.
  • $10 million for “Bedazzled” in 2000.
  • $12.5 million for “The Mummy Returns” in 2001
  • $14 million for 2008’s “Mummy” sequel

Personal Life and Finances

Of course, Brendan Fraser’s net worth isn’t just about what he earns. There are also costs involved. In his case, they’ve been tied to his personal life. He and Afton Smith divorced in 2008. A 2013 court case related to the divorce revealed more information about his finances.

Celebrity Net Worth reports that as of 2013, Brendan Fraser’s assets were worth $25 million. He reported his monthly income at just over $200,000. He claimed another $26,000 per month in investment income. However, he also had a whole lot of expenses:

  • Over $100,000 per month to lawyers, agents, and other professionals
  • $50,000 per month in alimony
  • $34,000 per month to taxes
  • $25,000 per month in child support
  • $25,000 per month in mortgage, property taxes, etc.

He was asking the court to reduce his alimony because his earnings had declined since the time of their divorce. However, the court said at the time that unless his annual earnings went below $3 million, his alimony costs would remain the same. As of that time, Fraser spent more than he earned each month.

Furthermore, there are expenses that we can assume even if we can’t know for sure about them. For example, we know he’s had multiple surgeries, therefore he’s had medical costs. Additionally, this eldest son is on the autism spectrum, so there might be additional care required there.

Brendan Fraser’s Net Worth: $20 million

This is our best guess at Brendan Fraser’s net worth as of 2021. However, with the slew of movie credits coming up, we expect the amount to rise in the near future.
