Forest Whitaker Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Forest Whitaker is a famous American actor, voice actor, film producer, TV and film director. Forest Steven Whitaker was born on July 15, 1961, in Longview, Texas. His main steps in his show business career Whitaker has made as an actor, not as a producer. At the beginning he mostly appeared in musicals, the first of them was “Fast Times at Ridgemon High” (released in 1982). Despite the fact Whitaker’s role in his first movie was really small, he showed himself as a talented actor and was noted by others.

Forest’s career to date has allowed him to accumulate net worth estimated at $40 million.

In 1995 he proved his great acting talent and charisma when he both appeared in and produced the movie “Waiting to Exhale”. This romantic drama was also his film directorial debut, and received Outstanding Lead Actress in a Motion Picture award and several MTV movie awards too. Forest Whitaker really shot to prominence as an actor in 1998, after starring in the lead role in a  biographical film about the famous American musician Charlie “Bird” Parker, “Bird”, directed by Clint Eastwood. The movie itself scored 74% on “Rotten Tomatoes” – website devoted to film reviews. Moreover, the actor earned several awards and considerable critical acclaim. After this outstanding performance, Whitaker’s career rose even more.

One more of Whitaker’s big moments was in 2006 for the role of Idi Amin in the movie called “The Last King of Scotland”, for which he received an Academy Award as the Best Actor.

His most recent and notable appearance was in the movie entitled “The Butler”, released in 2013, which is an American historical drama based on the real life of Eugene Allen. Forest Whitaker starred as the main character Cecil Gaines, who dedicated his life to be a professional domestic worker. This movie received five different awards and added a huge amount of money to Whitaker’s net worth.

Today Forest Whitaker lives with his wife Keisha Nash Whitaker – the couple married in 1996. They raise four children: their daughters True and Sonnet, Forest’s son from the previous relationship and Keisha’s daughter.
Forest Whitaker is known to be a vegetarian and the supporter of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). Forest supports Barack Obama and is a chief among the Igbo community. Moreover, on June 21, 2011, Whitaker was appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for Peace and Reconciliation in UNESCO. Today the famous actor supports all UNESCO’s activities and helps to empower young people to keep them away from the cycle of violence in the community. David Killion, UNESCO ambassador from United States, described Forest Whitaker as a person who feels compassion for every kind of humiliation and disgrace and he does his UNESCO job because it is the right thing to do.

#Quote
1 You must ask yourself if you're standing up for what you know is right, if you're spending time with people close to you, if you're treating others with kindness and compassion. These question are your moral compass, they're your north star... There will always be forces-things like jealousy, greed, and anger-trying to push you away from the ideas you believe in and the causes you care most about. Life is an active, not a passive, journey. [in commencement speech to graduates at California State University, Dominguez Hills]
2 [on working with Kasi Lemmons on 'Black Nativity'] She is a filmmaker who has a broad breadth of understanding. She's passionate, very open. She inspires you by creating a family atmosphere on set, and you always feel supported by her. I think she had a great vision. To do a contemporary musical with some attachment to the past is unique.
3 I've been fortunate I guess: I've gotten to play a lot of very diverse roles for quite a long time. But in the beginning, I was thinking 'I'm not gonna do certain characters. I will be willing to say no and and live on a couch'. And I was really happy. Maybe more happy sometimes than in latter years when I had more, when I was thinking and considering more things for different reasons - for family, for my home. But luckily I was able to at least maintain some sort of a line. Even if I would veer right or left, I would stay pretty close to center, and the roles were really interesting.
4 [on approaching each role with fresh eyes] There's a good fear and there's a negative fear. There's a thing you confront when you're going into something new and you come to this sort of abyss, and then you push yourself. It makes you try different things.
5 This oneness that we're reaching for is a hard thing to fight for because inside of it people are frightened. They're afraid. There's a fear, and we have to pass that fear...This thread, this thing, this machine, the movement that we have to recognize, has not stopped and it's continuing to move on.
6 We need to have our voices heard, acknowledge things for what they are, because acknowledgment is a big part of the healing of the nation. And then we have to make a conscious choice so that we can move forward to some form of repentance -some form of recompense, so that we can move into a forgiveness space of compassion.
7 I've talked to different groups who are in social activism and stuff and I would say to them 'You take your photograph right now of the ten of you. You may think yourselves anonymous and maybe sometimes you might be. But I want you to remember that each step you take is a part of history. That as we live and breathe, history is occurring. The fact that those photographs we used to see in the '60s of those individuals that you admire, that you didn't know their names but saw them marching down the streets - those are us.
8 [on director Lee Daniels] He's so present emotionally, and raw. And sometimes you finish a scene and you go over to him, and he'd just be weeping tears in his chair, crying. Coming over to say 'Was that okay?' He's so present and sometimes he just screams out laughing in the middle of a scene. It's kind of exhilarating and sort of unbalancing at the same time.
9 [on 'Lee Daniels' The Butler'] Sometimes in one day I might play three different ages - a 90 year old and a 50 year old and a 30 year old...[working] 20 hours a day. I was working at least no less than 15 usually, to 18...I broke the script down to such a degree that i could see exactly where I was at any time and what had happened before. I have never worked that specifically. It was one of the most challenging roles I had ever played, and as a result it kind of revitalized me as an actor. It brought the joy back to acting in a way.
10 [in 1996] Directing is more comfortable for me, because as an actor there's always something inherently false. Because I'm not that person. I can spend a week in jail, but I'm still leaving. I once talked to a shaman who said, "What makes you think these characters you play aren't real? I think you should examine that.' But it has always been my great frustration as an actor that I can't go deep into the thoughts, feelings and history of the character. As a director. I feel like it's real. I get caught up in the emotions and the story. I like being a storyteller.
11 [in 2006] I think that there's an awakening inside of me really honestly, and I honestly believe that the best work of my life is about to happen. I'm finding a balance in myself as an artist from the external and the internal, and so as a result the characters I play are going to be quite different. So what's going to happen is that it's going to lift up the characters I play, we're going to start to see it and I think it's going to change the face of my career.
12 [on his role in The Last King of Scotland (2006)) I did a massive amount to prepare for this. First of all I started learning Swahili, learning the accent, then I had to do study all the recording as well as all the books, tapes, documentaries. When I went to Uganda I met with his [Idi Amin's] brother, sister, his ministers, his generals and even to the Ugandan king. I did more research for this role than any other character I've probably ever played.
13 My eye? It's a genetic thing. My dad had it and now I have it. You know, I just found out that it may be correctable a little bit, because it does impair my vision. When I look up, I lose sight in this eye. I think maybe for other people, it informs the way they see me. But I don't really think about this eye, other than the times people talk about it, or when people take photographs of me sometimes they might say stuff about it. I don't think it makes me look bad or anything. It just is.
14 Until film is just as easily accessible as a pen or pencil, then it's not completely an art form. In painting you can just pick up a piece of chalk, a stick or whatever. In sculpture you can get a rock. Writing you just need a pencil and paper. Film has been a very elitist medium. It costs so much money. It doesn't allow everyone who wants to tell stories tell stories. The great storytellers, however, are going to rise to the top, no matter what. That's why independent film is very important to me.
15 [on his role in Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999) and how he prepared] I started reading "The Hagekure" and other books, including one called "The Code of the Samurai", and I watched a lot of films. I tried to find his mindset more than anything. It's more like a trance-like state for this character than it is anything else, based in the ancient book that he follows. But I did a lot of different types of research.
16 [on getting into acting] In high school I did some musicals, but I never took acting until college. I was studying opera, classical voice, and a speech teacher asked me to audition for this play and I got the lead. And she helped me to get into a conservatory, with a scholarship as a singer, and then I was accepted into the acting conservatory. This agent saw me, the summer before I went to conservatory, and while I was in school, I started working right away. And it worked out.
17 [on his role in The Last King of Scotland (2006)] It was an experience that changed my life and my thoughts. I went there with the purpose of understanding what it was like to be Ugandan, and I wanted to understand the food, the life, the way they deal with children and wives and with authority figures. I sat with Idi Amin's brother underneath a big mango tree and he told me stories about what Idi was like and how he used to come to town and pull together soccer or rugby games. It all helped me with figuring out the way he behaved and the way he thought, so that 24 hours a day, even in my dreams, I was totally consumed by the character of Idi Amin. It wasn't until the movie was over that I decided I could let go of the character, so the first thing I did was take a shower because I figured I could wash him off by scrubbing myself. I was in a room by myself, so I started yelling to get his voice out of me and get my own voice back.
18 [on filming the Panic Room (2002)] The guys on the set, Dwight [Dwight Yoakam], Jared [Jared Leto] and me, would work for a day, and then the next day Jodie [Jodie Foster] would work. We rarely worked together, so it was all about getting to know some of the guys. With the way scheduling was, she's not in the small frame as all of us. They never did it that way. The thing about the film was you did become closer with some people in ways because it took so long. This is the longest shoot I have ever had. It was about 145 shooting days. We also had rehearsals before that. I think it took so long because of the shots taken. It was the most planned movie I've been involved with.
19 [on choosing studio or independent films] I go back and forth between indie and studio because I feel like it, not because I feel obligated to do one or the other. The only reason to make a decision like that is financial, you know, you can't live. That doesn't make my decision for me, I do what feels right for me. I'm not going to do a bad movie just because it's a studio movie or an indie film, and there are hordes of bad independent movies. People tend to think that indie movies are always good, but I've seen horrific ones, just as well as I've seen horrific studio films. So I just go by how I feel, it's the only way you can figure it out. Otherwise you get lost in the maze of trying to second guess the people, the studio, how you can make your career long or short. It's easy to get lost in this maze, called life, really, you know what I mean?
20 [on his career] As an actor, I've always wanted to do characters that would help me find my connection with others and connect all of us together. You always want the energy of the character, the spirit of the person, to enter you. I've been doing this for 26 years and some of the things I've done are always with me. Maybe it's a word; maybe it's a gesture; maybe the sound; maybe it's a new understanding about something. I look at it like a past life because I keep going over and over what I have done.
21 [on his best work] If I were to mark three, I'd mark Bird (1988), because I grew immensely as an artist--I learned a lot--and also, I think, it was when people started to take me more seriously. I'd also mark Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999), because I started to understand something about myself in silence, how I'm capable of communicating certain things without doing much. And then I'd probably mark The Last King of Scotland (2006), which marries the internal and the external in a strong way and brings together all of the things I've learned about my work into one character.
22 [on the most interesting actor he has worked with] Mickey Rourke, I thought, was really interesting. I did a movie called Johnny Handsome (1989) that Walter Hill directed. I had a scene with Mickey in which he says goodbye to me, and I learned something very powerful. He didn't say anything. I don't know if his thoughts were so powerful or my imagination was so large, but I could swear I could hear him speaking to me. It was like he was saying, "I want to tell you thanks--you know, I'm about to disappoint you, but you did a good job". And then, finally, he says, "Thank you". I was just like, "Whoa!" He's an amazing actor.
23 [in 1998] As a kid, I never had dreams of becoming an actor or director. Even when I was already working professionally, it took me a long time to know whether this was what I really wanted to be. Now I feel comfortable about what I'm doing, but I see that I can continue to make it better, that I can create a deeper balance in my life, and I'm still working on that. I didn't plan for things to turn out this way at all. But I have to say, I feel good about it. I do.
24 [on his children's names - True and Ocean - and his name and how it affected his childhood] I want those names to be their destiny, for my daughter to be honest and my son to be expansive. I try to be like a forest, revitalizing and constantly growing . . . . Kids would tease me, calling me Little Bush". But . . . I thought being called Forest helped me find my identity.
25 [on being a black actor] I have friends, African-American actors, who've had more of a struggle; hopefully they're starting to see some air and light now. But in my directing career, in my acting career, in my producing career, I haven't been bound by a lot of limitations. When I first started doing these kinds of unique characters, these diverse characters, there was hardly anybody doing them. So I had this open road.
26 My parents moved to Los Angeles when I was really young, but I spent every summer with my grandparents, and I'd stay with my grandfather on the farm in Longview {Texas]. He was retired from the railroad, and he had a small farm with some cows and some pigs. I remember part of my youth was feeding hogs and plowing fields and stuff, so that's a part of me. And my parents raised me to say "sir" and "ma'am"' to open doors, things like that. That's the way I was brought up. Also, unfortunately, I was taught not to question too much. I didn't really question my mom and dad. That's usually what they told me to do.
27 [on his character in The Shield (2002)] I'm always blown away by people's negative reactions to Kavanaugh. He's a highly moral man who's brought to the breaking point. To me, he's like an angel. Yes, he's obsessive. Anal. Intense. But his goal is to get Vic Mackey off the street. This is somebody who beats people up on a weekly basis, steals money, blackmails people. But I'm the bad guy?
28 I can play a man who's despicable. But I'll still look inside him to find a point of connection. If I can find that kernel, audiences will relate to me.
