Spike Jonze Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Adam Spiegel was born on the 22nd October 1969 in Rockville, Maryland, USA of British and German descent. As Spike Jonze, he is known as a producer, director, and screenwriter, probably best recognized for directing “Being John Malkovich” (1999), “Adaptation” (2002), and “Her” (2013). He is also known for being an actor in a number of film and TV titles, such as “Three Kings” (1999), “Bad Grandpa” (2015), etc. His career has been active since 1989.

So, have you ever wondered how rich Spike Jonze is as of mid- 2016? It is estimated by authoritative sources that Spike counts his net worth at the impressive amount of $40 million as of mid- 2016, which has been accumulated through his career in the film industry. Another source is coming from his co-owning Director Label. Beside that, he is also the creative director of Vice Media, Inc., as well as the owner of a skateboard company, which has further increased his net worth.

Spike Jonze Net Worth $40 Million

Spike Jonze spent his childhood time divided between Bethesda, Maryland and Gulph Mills, Pennsylvania, where he was brought up by his father, Arthur H. Spiegel III, who was the founder of APM Management Consultants, and his mother, Sandra L. Granzow, who was a writer and artist; his brother is Sam “Squeak E. Clean” Spiegel, known in the media as a DJ and music producer. Spike attended Walt Whitman High School, and upon matriculation he became a student at the San Francisco Art Institute. In his teens, he was a member of the international BMX Club Homeboy, and worked as a photographer for “Freestylin’ Magazine”. Parallel with that, he became the co-creator of magazines “Dirt” and “Homeboy”; however his career began to turn another way.

Before Spike began directing films, he directed several music videos for songs performed by Bjork, R.E.M and Beastie Boys, among others, which was the main source of his net worth at that time. Before the 2000s, he directed his first film, the successful Charlie Kaufman’s creation “Being John Malkowich” (1999). The movie became a blockbuster, launching Spike into the world of directing. Since then, he has directed four feature films, a number of short films, and also numerous videos, for artists such as Weezer, Sonic Youth, Daft Punk, and many others, all of which have raised his net worth.

His second feature film was “Adaptation” (2002), written again by Charlie Kaufman, which had a budget of $19 million, and grossed $32.8 million, increasing his net worth. His next directorial venture was the film he also wrote, entitled “Where The Wild Things Are” (2009), starring Catherine O` Hara and Forest Whitaker. In 2013, his next film came out, entitled “Her”, with main roles gone to Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams and Joaquin Phoenix.

Furthermore, Spike is also recognized as an actor, appearing in more than 20 film and TV titles; he made his debut appearance in 1993, a brief role in the film “Mividaloca”. Six years later, he featured in the film “Three Kings”, with George Clooney and Ice Cube in lead roles, and in 2010 he appeared in the TV series “The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret” through to 2012, and in 2013 he made a cameo in his film “Her”. All these appearances contributed to the overall size of his net worth.

To speak further of his accomplishments, he featured in the film “Bad Grandpa” (2013), and most recently he appeared in a brief role in the TV series “Girls”, among other appearances, all of which have added to his net worth.

Thanks to his skills, Spike has received several prestigious awards, including an Oscar for Best Writing, Original Screenplay and a Golden Globe in category Best Screenplay – Motion Picture both for the film “Her”. Overall, he has won more than 50 awards, and has more than 90 nominations, which speak of how great his career is.

Regarding his personal life, Spike Jonze was married to director Sofia Coppola from 1999 to 2003. Later, he was dated Michelle Williams (2008-2009), and two years later, he was in a brief relationship with actress Rinko Kikuchi.

Looks like we don't have Adam Spiegel salary information. Sorry!

3 His father was from a German Jewish and Russian Jewish family, while his mother's ancestry includes German, Scottish, and English.
4 His close movie-making friends include music-video director Chris Cunningham, Charles Kaufman, David Fincher, Catherine Keener, Nicole Holofcener, Miranda July, Bennett Miller, and Steven Soderbergh.
5 Cousin of Gabriel Cowan.
6 Former son-in-law of Francis Ford Coppola.

(2002).
10 Before George Lucas decided to make the movie himself, Spike was in talks to direct Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002).
11 Told Nicolas Cage to ignore all of his acting instincts, for his role in Adaptation. (2002). Cage later received a Oscar Nomination for his acting in that movie.
12 Was originally going to direct Synecdoche, New York (2008), but took the role as producer instead, to finish Where the Wild Things Are (2009).
13 Jonze was an avid BMX freestyle rider in his youth.
14 While filming Where the Wild Things Are (2009), Jonze kept in contact with the book's original writer Maurice Sendak, to mix Sendak's ideas with his own.

26 Brother of Sam Spiegel.
27 In 2001, at the age of 32, he directed the video for Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice." This video contains 32 cuts.

#Quote
1 [on Amy Adams] The thing I realized with Amy is, she can make any dialogue you write sound unwritten. She just has a way of internalizing it. She's such a thinker, and you can see her thinking her way through all of that until it's all coming from within her.
2 There was definitely a point in my thirties when I thought, 'Oh, wow, I'm not the youngest person on the set anymore. But I like it. Working with younger artists is totally exciting...[And Arcade Fire:] Most of them are ten years younger than me and they just feel like peers. Their process is very democratic. Anyone in the group can come up with an idea and play over someone else.
3 [on Joaquin Phoenix's first reading for/ acting in Her (2013)] I loved him...[He was] all instinct [and] when something felt weird, when Joaquin was uncomfortable with something, I knew it meant there was some place I had cheated or hadn't thought through or hadn't gone deep enough. His flinch is always worth listening to...I'm always amazed when any actor can decipher my direction. I think, 'God, I can't believe Joaquin just understood what I meant when I barely said anything'.
4 [on the origins of Her (2013) from his long-ago encounter with an artificial-intelligence computer program] For the first 30 seconds, I had that buzz, like, It's responding to me! Then it quickly fell apart and you realize, Here are the tricks, here's how this works. But what if I could sustain that forever? What would that be like? I wanted to take that idea as far as I could possibly imagine and feel.
5 As a feature film director you got to be a guarding dog of the whole production. You got to be able to hold 100 script pages in the head at the same time. If you miss a detail it's wasted. I don't know how the music video generation can affect the movie business, but I'm curious what feature films the English Chris Cunningham and the Swedish guy Jonas Åkerlund are going to make.

#Trademark
1 Green and blue tinged scenes lit by fluorescents
2 Often shoots exterior scenes around sunset
3 Many of his music videos are short films set to music
4 Often makes his actors appear unattractive, e.g. Cameron Diaz's frizzy hair and frumpy wardrobe in Being John Malkovich (1999), outfitting Nicolas Cage in a fatsuit and receding hairline in Adaptation. (2002).
5 Frequently has a male character unexpectedly break into dance: John Malkovich in Being John Malkovich (1999), Christopher Walken in "Weapon of Choice", Theodore in Her (2013)
6 Frequently uses music from Karen O and the Arcade Fire
7 Subtle handheld camera operation
8 Seamless integration of special effects into live-action photography (Being John Malkovich (1999), Adaptation. (2002), Where the Wild Things Are (2009)).
9 [Off-beat] His films/music videos are off-beat in their visual storytelling, particularly their mix of live-action, animation, and puppetry.
