Christoph Waltz Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Christoph Waltz was born on the 4 October 1956 in Vienna, Austria, one of four children, and also has German citizenship from his father – a set builder – and his mother, a costume designer. He had a deeper family tradition to uphold, as his grandmother, Maria Mayen and step-grandfather Emmerich Reimers were actors at the famous Burgtheater in Vienna. He is mostly known for his roles in movies “Inglorious Basterds” and “Django Unchained” by Quentin Tarantino, have had the biggest impact on his total net worth, and is also a director.

So, just how rich is Christoph Waltz? Well, the Austrian’s net worth is estimated to be over $20 million by sources, the larger part of his wealth having coming from his television and movie appearances on two continents, especially Hollywood movies, in a career now spanning almost 40 years. Christoph has also signed profitable endorsement deals with some large companies such as IKEA and Deutsche Telekom, who have been attracted by his acting success. The actor owns large residences in Berlin and Los Angeles. He also loves to drive top-of-the-line cars – he is a big fan of the Jaguar car brand and has several of them in his garage.

Christoph Waltz Net Worth $20 Million

Christoph Waltz has long worked in Europe, but he has also attracted the attention of American movie audience. He began acting as a teenager, and was then educated at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, and later at the Max Reinhardt Seminar. After that, Waltz studied method acting in New York with Lee Strasberg and Stella Adler. He began his career in theater, notably in Vienna, Zurich and Salzburg, and then moved onto television, becoming noticed for his role in “The Gravy Train”.on British TV in the 1990s. When he and Quentin Tarantino started working together, his Hollywood career began flourishing. In the film “Inglorious Basterds” (2009) he played Colonel Hans Landa and the role won him a total of 20 awards, including the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2009, and an Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA award for the Best Supporting Actor. He also won all three for a second time for the film “Django Unchained” in 2012.

Christoph has been involved in almost 460 movies and 75 television shows to date, including a couple as director, producer and writer, and has a total of 79 nominations and 36 award wins. He is the only Austrian actor to have won two Oscars and the first and, so far, only actor to win an Oscar for acting in a Tarantino film.

In his personal life, Waltz has three adult children from a previous marriage, and a daughter with second wife Judith Holste. He is fluent in English, German and French, and says that he can mimic Italian fluently all of which have no doubt aided his career. Christoph Waltz currently divides his time between the cities of Berlin, London and Los Angeles due to work-related requirements. He loves opera, singing and musicals.

The award winning artist has even given his support to fund-raising events for charities like UNICEF. Despite being rich and famous, he is very modest. When interviewed about his quick success in Hollywood, he said: “It can be very annoying. Sometimes everything goes very smoothly, but sometimes it’s a real mess.” He is known to be a very reserved person and hardly ever talks about his personal life in his interviews to media.

Looks like we don't have Christoph Waltz salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 Is one of six performers to win an Oscar playing a character that mostly spoke in a foreign language (for his performance in Inglourious Basterds (2009)). The others are Sophia Loren, Robert De Niro, Roberto Benigni, Benicio Del Toro and Marion Cotillard.
2 He is the grandchild of the actress Maria Mayen.
3 Similar to Robin Williams, most of the villainous characters Waltz has played have been clean-shaven, while most of the protagonists he has played have sported beards or some form of facial hair.
4 Along with Christopher Walken in A View To A Kill (1985) and Javier Bardem (in Skyfall (2012)), he is one of three Oscar-winning actors to play a main Bond villain. Benicio Del Toro, who appeared in Licence to Kill (1989) as a henchman of the main villain, won his Oscar after appearing in the Bond film.
5 He played the small part of a 'German spy' in the British TV-Movie Goldeneye (1989) about the life of James Bond creator Ian Fleming. Waltz was an unknown actor then. Fleming was played by Charles Dance. 26 years later Waltz would appear in Spectre (2015) in the iconic role of James Bond's greatest villain: 'Ernst Stavro Blofeld'.
6 He is the first actor to appear in the James Bond franchise to have won two Academy Awards.
7 He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6667 Hollywood Boulevard on December 1, 2014.
8 In 2013, he won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Quentin Tarantino's anti-slavery western Django Unchained (2012), where he plays a bounty hunter who opposes the enslavement of the blacks. The next year, he presented the Best Supporting Actress Oscar to Lupita Nyong'o, who won for her performance as a slave in Steve McQueen's anti-slavery drama 12 Years a Slave (2013). In addition to this, his Oscar for Django was presented to him by Supporting Actress winner Octavia Spencer, who had been awarded the previous year for her performance in The Help (2011), focused on the racism against blacks.
9 His stepfather Alexander Steinbrecher had previously been the stepfather of director Michael Haneke by his marriage to actress Beatrix Degenschild.
10 He loves opera. His favorite opera composer is Donizetti.
11 He and Marcia Gay Harden are the only two actors to win an Oscar without receiving a SAG nomination for the same performance.
12 Is the only Austrian actor (born in Vienna) to win two Oscars.
13 As of 2013, he is only one of 6 actors who have a 2-0 winning record when nominated for an acting Oscar. The others are Luise Rainer for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) and The Good Earth (1937); Vivien Leigh for Gone with the Wind (1939) and A Streetcar Named Desire (1951); Helen Hayes for The Sin of Madelon Claudet (1931) and Airport (1970); Kevin Spacey for The Usual Suspects (1995) and American Beauty (1999); and Hilary Swank for Boys Don't Cry (1999) and Million Dollar Baby (2004).
14 Both his Oscar-winning performances were directed by Quentin Tarantino. This makes him one of four actors to win two Oscars under the same person's direction. The other three are: Walter Brennan for Come and Get It (1936) and The Westerner (1940) (both directed by William Wyler), Jack Nicholson for Terms of Endearment (1983) and As Good as It Gets (1997) (both directed by James L. Brooks) and Dianne Wiest for Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) and Bullets Over Broadway (1994) (both directed by Woody Allen).
15 Counts Federico Fellini's (1963) as one of his all-time favorite films, having seen it numerous times since his teens.
16 Is one of four consecutive Oscar winners in the Best Supporting Actor category whose name begins with Chris, the other actors being Christian Bale and Christopher Plummer. Waltz won twice.
17 Despite being born in Austria, he was born with German citizenship (and kept it all his life) since his father was German.
18 His first wife, Jackie, was from New York and Jewish.
19 The first and, thus far, only actor to win an Oscar for acting in a Quentin Tarantino film. He received Best Supporting Actor for both Inglourious Basterds (2009) and Django Unchained (2012).
20 Was originally cast as Sigmund Freud in A Dangerous Method (2011), but dropped out of the project in order to film Water for Elephants (2011). Viggo Mortensen was later cast instead.
21 Is one of 11 actors to have won the Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Critics' Choice Award, Golden Globe Award and SAG Award for the same performance. The others in chronological order are Geoffrey Rush for Shine (1996), Jamie Foxx for Ray (2004), Philip Seymour Hoffman for Capote (2005), Forest Whitaker for The Last King of Scotland (2006), Javier Bardem for No Country for Old Men (2007), Daniel Day-Lewis for There Will Be Blood (2007) and Lincoln (2012), Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight (2008), Colin Firth for The King's Speech (2010), Christopher Plummer for Beginners (2010), and J.K. Simmons for Whiplash (2014).

#Quote
1 It would be completely laughable if I claimed I was always motivated by the pure craft of acting and that recognition doesn't play a part. Of course it does - that's human nature. The bohemian artist who exists only for his art, it's a myth.
2 I do feel I can say - without smugness - that it feels good. I am entitled. I am entitled to judge the situation and say that yes: It feels good, and that yes, I agree with you. I feel like I served my time. I feel like I paid [my dues].
3 [on fame] As a motivation in itself, celebrity is foolhardy and stupid.
4 [on Bill Murray ] He was just the nicest guy, he gave me the biggest tips [while Waltz was working as a waiter]. And now I know him: not like as a close friend, but I know him. I really like how he handles privacy. But then Bill Murray is a radical...I'm not a radical. I'm just a smart-ass.
5 [on being a private person] When I was 25, that's when this whole thing got started. My oldest daughter was a little kid. A tabloid reporter called my house. He said, "I hear a child crying. Is it a boy or a girl? What's their name?". I said "I want to keep that private." He said "It's not private." Thats when I decided I didn't want other people to decide what I disclose.
6 [on waiting 30 years to become an overnight success] That was my experience, and it was very frustrating. These false dawns went on for a long time. It feels like someone keeps trying to switch the light on, but the dimmer switch is broken. And then sometimes the bulb blows altogether.
7 [on comedy] As long as you take it seriously, you can do it. But in a movie, because comedy is so much timing and rhythm, all of that is most established in editing. I can say a complete straight sentence, just neutral and straight, and a good editor can turn it into a funny or sad thing. Because that's the beauty of movies, nothing works in itself.
8 If the advice to 'get out' is too late, then my advice would always be read, go to museums, go to concerts. Don't learn life from movies or television.
9 Becoming an actor is like becoming a father. It's not hard to become one. Making a life of it is the challenge.
10 [his Oscar acceptance speech for Inglourious Basterds (2009)] Oscar and Penélope [Cruz], that's an über bingo! I always wanted to discover some new continent and I thought I had to go this way, and then I was introduced to Quentin Tarantino, who was putting together an expedition that was equipped by Harvey Weinstein and Lawrence Bender and David Linde, and he put this script in front of me and he said, "This is where we're going, but we're going the other way." So Brad Pitt helped me on board and Diane Kruger was there Mélanie Laurent and Denis Ménochet and Bob Richardson and Sally Menke and Adam Schweitzer and Lisa Kasteler. Everybody helped me find a place. Universal and The Weinstein Company and ICM and Quentin, with his unorthodox methods of navigation, this fearless explorer, took this ship across and brought it in with flying colours and that's why I'm here. And this is your welcoming embrace and there's no way I can ever thank you enough, but I can start right now. Thank you.
11 It's the result that makes the art, not necessarily the process that leads to it. So when Hilary plays Bach, that's the music (but) what you perceive is the art. Is she considering herself as an artist? I don't think so. I think she just puts herself into the craft, into each individual note and ties them together in order to arrive at what the emotion might be. That's one of the biggest problems with the actor. The piece of art -- the person, the performance, everything that leads up to it -- is so difficult to separate from each other.
12 It's frustrating. Even though I agree with all of you [other actors being interviewed], I have a less romantic and idealistic approach to acting. Over there [Germany], the business is based on mediocrity. On a high level, admittedly, but mediocrity. You reach a certain level, beyond which you will not go. Not just in career but in challenges and opportunity. It's interesting for the specific issue of how to cope with an actor's life. To lead an actor's life. What do you do if you have a stretch of five years where you only get mediocre offers and nothing to sink your teeth into? That's where it is difficult. Becoming an actor is one thing. Being an actor is entirely different.
13 [on the toughest aspect of preparing for Inglourious Basterds (2009)] To put aside what I know about the topic. Because it was irrelevant. Growing up in that area, you don't hear much about the French Revolution or the Egyptians or the Seven Year War. You hear about the Nazi era. But it was irrelevant to the part and unnecessary and would have been a bad obstacle.
14 [on advice a dog trainer once gave him that can apply to him as well] The better the dog, the busier you have to keep him. I'm arrogant and blase enough to consider myself a very good dog. You take pride in what you're doing, in your craft, and all of that, but -- I wouldn't say I resigned myself to mediocrity, not at all, but I started to accept that there might be an ideal you strive for (and) never realize.
15 The one advantage of having grown up in the business is that you don't romanticize it. "Oh, isn't it wonderful?" Blah, blah, blah. No, it isn't! I've never romanticized it. But on the other hand, the conviction, the dedication that you see here, is tremendous. It would be awful if the whole business consisted of grouchy farts like me.
16 I know what I can contribute. And that's a very limited, very specific unit, whether it's a big movie, a small movie, a German movie, an American movie. That's the advantage I have over a 25-year-old. I've had the chance to understand what it is I do.
17 [on being typecast] Nobody's talking about that. I get interest coming my way from many different directions. I'd hate to pigeon-hole myself. The variety is what's interesting.
18 [on working in Hollywood] In Europe, everybody would say, "Well, they just want to squeeze you like a lemon." Well, yeah! But, you know, if I have the juice, why shouldn't they?
