How much is Will Ferrell worth? $100 million

How did Will Ferrell earn his money and wealth?

The American national Will Ferrell is a popular actor, producer, author, impressionist, and comedian. Having worked in different genres, Ferrell is best known for acting. The actor and comedian stroke the spotlight with his acting skills in his old hits that include “Blades of Glory”, ‘Talladega Nights”, “Elf”, “Step Brothers”, “Old School” and some more. Will Ferrell’s net worth is calculated to be $85 million, as of 2017. The star stockpiled his hard earned cash with streams of TV shows, movies and comedy acts.

The mid 90’s TV show Saturday Night Live (SNL), an NBC sketch comedy was the stepping stone for Will Ferrell in his caravan of a movie career. He got hired as a cast member on the comedy show SNL. HE was originally named John William which turned to be a name of ill-repute for the artist. He was well-received as the pseudonym of “Will Ferrell”. Pretty soon his eminence as an actor and comedian from the United States became well-known. After leaving from the NBC show, Ferrell makes his appearance in the comedy movies like Anchorman, Semi-Pro, Stranger than Fiction, The Other Guys, Old School, and few others, which subsequently became a source of supplementing Ferrell’s net worth of $85million at present.

The self-starrer and produced film—The Other Guys, as a buddy cop, earned him approximately over $140 million in 2012. “The Anchorman: The Legend Continues”, featuring Ferrel released in October 2013 and yet again resulted in pure serendipity. Up till now, there is no any comedian whose one-liners and character depictions are more popular than Ferrell’s. From an iconic journey on NBC’s SNL to multi-million dollar agreements for mega hits like ‘Melinda and Melinda’, ‘Starsky & Hutch’, ‘Anchorman; The Legend of Ron Burgundy’, Will Ferrell has been splendid throughout.

The authoritative possessor of $30million in lieu of remuneration of his character as Ron Burgundy in the Anchorman spin-off, Ferrell appears to rip off of a walloping amount of cash from movie producers. From Ferrell’s film Talladega Nights, he was able to cash in around $7 million against his large salary paycheque. Talladega Nights accounted for huge earnings at the box office that weighed up to $47,042,215 in its first week of release, thus topping the blockbuster. Following its run in theatres worldwide, the film managed to accumulate a revenue of $163 million.

A bolt from the blue for all die-hard fans and secret admirers of Will Ferrell’s; the actor and comedian had an estimated valuation of $100 million in 2013. So, technically his net worth has declined in these many years and we do not understand why.
