Maria Menounos Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Maria Menounos was born on 8 June 1978, in Medford, Massachusetts USA of Greek ancestry. Maria is a popular TV journalist, well known for reporting on such programs as “Extra”, “Access Hollywood”, “Today” and others, but first came to prominence when she won the title of Miss Massachusetts Teen USA in 1996.

Maria Menounos Net Worth $7 Million

So just how rich is Maria Menounos? Sources estimate that the overall amount of Maria Menounos net worth reaches the sum of $7 million. The main source of her net worth is journalism, however, she also receives revenues from other activities.

Maria Menounos parents emigrated from Greece to the USA. She is a graduate of Medford High School and Emerson College, in 2000. Being 172cm height and only 52kg weight she started competing in beauty pageants in 1995. Maria’s television career began when she was signed as a reporter and interviewer for Channel One News in 2000. From 2002 to 2005, Menounos worked for “Entertainment Tonight” where she filed reports on the topics of fashion, music and movies. Meanwhile, she episodically appeared in various television series, including “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” (2002), “Without a Trace” (2003) and others. All these activities contributed to boosting Maria’s net worth.

Another notable role on TV came in 2006, when Maria hosted the popular Eurovision Song Contest held in Athens, Greece, for US TV. In 2005, Marie debuted on the big screen with the role of Sexy Nurse in the film “Fantastic Four” (2005) directed by Tim Story. Later, she starred alongside Jamie Kennedy, Michael Rosenbaum and Miguel A. Núñez Jr. in the comedy film “Kickin’ It Old Skool” (2007) directed by Harvey Glazer. However, the film failed at the box office earning only $4.4 million while the budget was more than $25 million, and receiving negative reviews from critics. Regardless, Maria also landed roles in the film “Adventures of Serial Buddies” (2011) directed by Keven Undergaro and several other films.

In 2004, Maria was listed in the “50 Most Beautiful People” by the FHM magazine, and is the winner of the Madden NFL Pro-AM MVP award and “Smokin’ Hot TV Personality” Award both in 2010.
Somewhat surprisingly perhaps, Maria Menounos is a long-time WWE fan, and has made several appearances in the ring, debuting in 2009, usually in tag-team bouts and successfully too. However, Maria Menounos’ work on television has been very intense throughout all her career; she has appeared in various talk shows as a guest, landed roles in television movies, as well as hosting programs. One of her latest works is hosting the news program “Untold” (2014).

In her personal life, Maria Menounos is in a long term relationship with producer and director Keven Undergaro: they have been together since 1998. Menounos is also a philanthropist, including being the founder of “Take Action Hollywood”, which is a foundation promoting research into AIDS.

#Quote
1 The odd thing is, I don't consider what I do work, because it's what I love. But it is also an enormous amount of pressure, and you have to work an enormous amount of hours.
2 We had four different sets and built 38 flats to use as walls, so we had a major production going on. It's so much fun when you're controlling it, but it's also so much pressure.
3 You have to take control of your own career.
4 I know that producing will ultimately mean more longevity in the business, so when I'm tired of everything else and want to be behind the cameras, I know that I can produce.
5 I'm really excited, because the character, Jules, is a really awesome character. I'm really excited to be playing her, and overall, I'm really excited to be getting back to my acting roots.
6 If you take the more general role of going to local stations around the country in Montana or South Carolina or wherever, and start in the local news, it's a lot more difficult to get to the stories that you want to really cover.
7 So most of my acting experience came in college when I was living away from them. I acted in various independent films, and I got some commercial work and stuff like that.
8 So for me, anything that has to do with animals, and I'm a happy camper.
9 So now, cut to ten years later, and I'm making this amazing contract with Pantene. It's incredible.
10 That's why charity work is very selfish at the same time, because it makes you feel good.
11 The designer of my Emmy gown is donating my gown to the charity for an auction.
12 Tim Story is a fantastic director, and I'm so excited to get to work with him.
13 I love comic book movies, and Marvel Comics obviously are the best.
14 I saw Red Eye, and I love being scared and on the edge of my seat.
15 I think Channel One was very integral in my career.
16 I think people think we're all sipping martinis by the pool.
17 Integrity is integrity. I don't push it to the side because I'm talking to Julia Roberts.
18 One of the first things I did was interview the President of the United States. Some people work their whole lives and can't interview someone of that stature.
19 There's something about taking a film from concept to script, through production, and then to see the final thing happening in the edit phase. It's almost like a miracle in the making.
20 A lot of people didn't realize that I acted before I did anything else.
21 Back in the day after I won my first pageant there was an agency that was getting me work on the side.
22 I am honored to be a Bond girl and be a part of the Bond legacy, To star in a video game with Connery, the original Bond, is incredible.
