Joan Cusack Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Joan Cusack, born on the 11th of October 1962, is an American actress, perhaps best known for her Oscar nominated roles in “Working Girl” and “In & Out”, and her television show “Shameless”.

So how much is Cusack’s net worth? As of early 2016 it is reported to be $8 million, gained mostly from her long career in acting, from movies to television, spanning almost three decades.

Joan Cusack Net Worth $8 Million

Born in New York City of part-Irish American descent, but raised in Illinois, Cusack is the daughter of Nancy and Dick and has four other siblings, all of whom are actors; one in particular is Hollywood actor John Cusack. Cusack honed her talents when she trained with the Piven Theatre Workshop. Later she joined Story Theatre and The Ark, where she learned and performed improvisations. She later went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and graduated with a degree in English.

Her acting career started in the ’80s where she starred in minor supporting roles in “My Bodyguard”, “Cutting Loose”, “Grandview, U.S.A.” and “Sixteen Candles”. Though they were mostly secondary or short roles, these were the movies in which she started making a name for herself and built up her net worth. She later joined the well-renowned comedy show “Saturday Night Live”. Although she only stayed in the show for only one season, her acting prowess and comedic timing were recognized by fans and film producers which led to her first major role in the movie “Broadcast News” in 1987, in which her exceptional comedic performance saw her later cast in her next comedy film, “Working Girl”. Her performance as Cynthia in this romantic comedy film, gained her an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress, and also raised her wealth when the film became a box office hit.

After the success of “Working Girl”, Cusack has appeared consistently on the big screen in movies like “Stars and Bars”, “Married to the Mob” and “Men Don’t Leave” to name a few. In the ’90s she took a break from Hollywood to focus on her family, but she returned in the movie “In & Out” in 1997, and once again gained an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress for her performance in the film.

After thirty years in the film industry, Cusack has been involved in over fifty films, making her one of the most enduring and respected actresses in Hollywood and also helped establish her net worth. She has been nominated many time for awards by Film Critics Associations in various city festivals, several for her performance in “In and Out”.

Most recently she is in the television show “Shameless”, now in its 6th season; her performance in the show has earned her a Primetime Emmy Award. In 2017 she will be returning as cowgirl Jesse in the Disney film “Toy Story 4”.

In terms of her personal life, Cusack married lawyer Richard Burke in 1993, who is President and CEO of VISANOW Global Immigration. The couple has two kids, Dylan and Miles.
