Rutger Hauer Net Worth $10 million

Hauer’s parents were drama teachers, busy with their careers, so he grew up in Amsterdam and attended a Waldorf school while being brought up by nannies. At the age of 15, he ran away from home and spent a year on a freighter. After returning home, he worked as an electrician while taking acting classes at night school, but he then served in the Royal Netherlands Navy.

Rutger joined an experimental troupe and stayed with them for five years until he was cast in the medieval action drama entitled “Floris” in 1969, which made him famous in the Netherlands. Later, he would reprise this role in 1975’s “Floris von Rosemund” which is a German remake. He also starred in the film “Turkish Delight” which made him known around the world, and this led him to try to pursue roles in international films. He appeared in “The Wilby Conspiracy” in a supporting role but unnoticed by Hollywood. He then returned to appear in various Dutch films such as “Katie Tippei”, “Soldier of Orange” and “Spetters”. His net worth was now established.

In 1981, Hauer appeared in his first American film, “Nighthawks” opposite Sylvester Stallone. He became very popular after appearing in the science fiction film “Blade Runner” directed by Ridley Scott, which launched his career in Hollywood, and he would then appear in “Eureka”, “The Osterman Weekend”, and “Flesh & Blood”, and was also cast with Michelle Pfeiffer in “Ladyhawke”. In 1986, he starred in “The Hitcher”, playing a murdering hitchhiker, which continued to raise his popularity and net worth. He then starred in ”The Legend of the Holy Drinker” and “Blind Fury” which is a martial arts film, but he returned to science fiction in the 1990 “The Blood of Heroes”.
In the 1990s, Rutger appeared in various Guinness commercials, and also in a string of low budget films, but in the music video “On a Night Like This” by Kylie Minogue too. Later on, he would appear in several television productions such as “Escape from Sobibor” which earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor, and in “Fatherland”, “Merlin” and “Smallville”; his numerous projects would continue to help raise his net worth.

He was honored for his work in 1999 when he was awarded the Dutch “Best Actor of the Century Rembrandt Award”. In 2003, in “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” he played an assassin, and would continue his villainous roles in “Sin City”. He also starred in “Batman Begins”, and one of his most recent roles is in “True Blood”.

For his personal life, it is known that Hauer has married twice, firstly to Heidi Merz and secondly to Ineke ten Cate in 1985. His daughter is Aysha Hauer who is also an actress. Aside from his acting work, he is an environmentalist, and is an advocate of the release of Paul Watson, sentenced for sinking a whaling vessel. He also established the Rutger Hauer Starfish Association which focuses on AIDS awareness.

Looks like we don't have Rutger Oelsen Hauer salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 He did his own stunt driving on The Hitcher (1986).
2 Was offered the lead role in Das Boot (1981). He turned it down in favour of Blade Runner (1982).
3 Was considered for the role Bukovsky in Lifeforce (1985).
4 Has played Dracula in Dracula III: Legacy (2005), and the arch-nemesis of Dracula, Van Helsing in Dracula 3D (2012) where Thomas Kretschmann was Dracula. Ironically, Kretschmann went on to play the role of Van Helsing on the television series Dracula (2013) a year after.
5 Has a vampire named Kurt Barlow in Salem's Lot (2004) and a fairy named Niall Brigant on the television series True Blood (2008).
6 Loves to ride the motorcycle. While on a break from filming The Blood of Heroes (1989), he made a tour and subsequently got lost in the Australian desert. It was by chance that he found the setback on his own.
7 When making his debut in the United States, he was advised to use a more English-sounding name in order to better appeal to the American public. He refused, assuming that his American career would be short-lived anyway.
8 Has made a television series and five movies directed by Paul Verhoeven. However, they had a falling-out on their last combined effort, the much-troubled Flesh+Blood (1985), and the two have not worked again since.
9 Has named his five favorite films as Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959), Apocalypse Now (1979), Wings of Desire (1987), GasLand (2010) and Position Among the Stars (2010).
10 Founded the I've Seen Films International Film Festival.
11 As a hobby, he used to design trucks in the 1980s.
12 Has a tattoo on each shoulder; one of his former wife, and the other of a friend who died. Explained that "It's a way of saying 'You're under my skin.'".
13 Turned down a role in Paul Verhoeven's Black Book (2006).
14 He gives master classes in moviemaking to students and new actors and moviemakers. This takes places in Rotterdam, Netherlands. He has been doing this for several years.
15 Grandfather of Leandro Maeder.
16 During the late 1980s and early 1990s, Hauer became well known to the British mainstream for a series of Guinness commercials where he is clad in black. He publicly took a dislike for the drink and had to spit it out after each take. His appearance is credited for an increase in sales of Guinness.
17 Spent five years in a pantomime company prior to seriously pursuing an acting career.
18 Son of Arend Hauer.
19 Former father-in-law of his Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) co-star Thomas Jane.
20 Director Richard Donner originally wanted to use him as the villain Marquet in Ladyhawke (1985), but Hauer turned that role down and expressed more interest in playing the film's hero Etienne Navarre.
21 Has appeared in two vampire movies with Donald Sutherland: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) and Salem's Lot (2004).
22 Parents, Arend and Teunke Hauer, operated an acting school in Amsterdam.
23 Set up an AIDS research foundation called the Rutger Hauer Starfish Foundation.
24 The Dutch Mail Service issued a stamp in 1995 with Rutger on it, taken from a scene in Turkish Delight (1973).
25 Is an environmentalist. Fought for the release of Greenpeace's co-founder, Paul Watson, who was convicted in 1994 for sinking an illegal Norwegian whaling vessel. According to the Official Rutger Hauer website, the vessel was sunk in 1992 as a protest to Norway's announced intention to return to the commercial slaughter of whales, which was to be done in violation of the International Whaling Commission's global ban on whaling.
26 Wife, Ineke ten Kate, whom he married in 1985, was a painter and sculptor.
27 Speaks German fluently (more or less accent-free).
28 Both his first and last name end with the letters "er". He has appeared in 13 movies/television-series whose title or alternative title end with "er" or "ers". He has played 8 characters whose names end with "er".
29 Was Paul Verhoeven's first choice to play RoboCop (1987), before Peter Weller was cast.
30 According to an interview she gave when Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994) was first published, Rutger Hauer was Anne Rice's original vision for Lestat when the book was being written. Despite a popular rumor that Julian Sands was her first choice, he did not even begin to show up in films or television until 1982, so Rice could not have been aware of him in 1976 when she was writing the book; Rutger has been acting since 1968. Rice may have said Sands would be great for the part when they were casting the film, because she has said that by the time the film was being made Hauer was too old to play Lestat.
31 Is color blind.
32 Father of Ayesha Hauer

#Quote
1 Film is not a medium for actors. Everyone seems to think so, since it is the actors who get promoted to stardom. Creating stars is only a marketing ploy. It's the stars that sell a movie. The same technique is used in selling music, baseball games and hamburgers. An actor does not make or break a movie. Some of them look good on screen, but they are not important. How many extremely bad movies are there with one good or very good actor, or even two or three very good actors in the credits? I like to think of myself as a good actor, and even I made quite a lot of bad movies. Why are good actors no longer good when they play in a bad movie? And how many good movies have actors that are normally mediocre at best?
2 [on what his favorite or most memorable performance is of his own]: The deepest was Blade Runner (1982), because it was the first time where I just danced with the director and, let's say, the concept and the tone: I understood, on a very strong level, what he wanted, and by instinct I gave it to him. Half the time, what the hell did I know? I was just starting out to be an actor right there. This was after an experience on Nighthawks (1981) which was pretty tough and very bureaucratic and difficult. If your creative ideas are strangled, that doesn't work for me. It doesn't mean I have to be right -- that's not the point at all. It's just there needs to be a click between the creator and you. That was Blade Runner for me. To dance along, so long and beautifully, and then for it to be reformatted so it could live another 20 years; this is something completely unique. So there's only one way to answer that question.
3 During the initial release of The Hitcher (1986), he stated that he would not be seeking antagonist roles. In 1986, a periodical in Spokane, Washington, The Spokesman Review, ran the headline "He plays villains without a 'Hitch'". Was concerned of being typecast.
4 I have a lot of energy. I'm a lot stronger than most people.
5 I don't know what the appeal is. I can see I've got blue eyes and I don't look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame but I can't understand the fuss.
6 "Good guy" or "bad guy", hero or anti hero; doesn't matter to me, what role I play, only the character have something magical.
