Steve Martin Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Stephen Glenn Martin was born on 14 August 1945, in the city of Waco, Texas, USA, and is a comedian, writer, actor, musician and producer – in fact, is there anything Steve Martin can’t do? Named one of the planet’s best stand-up comedians in 2004, and winning multiple awards – including a Primetime Emmy and no less than five Grammies – Steve Martin is definitely one of the most successful contemporary performers and entertainers. Consider that he has also released a number of Top Ten albums that have gone Platinum in the US, and you will begin to understand where Steve Martin gets his considerable wealth.

So just how rich is Steve Martin? Steve’s success over the course of his long and varied career has brought him an estimated net worth to the tune of $110 million, accumulated since he first rose to fame as a writer for ‘The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour’ in 1967.

Steeve Martin was the only son of a well-off upper middle class family. Steve Martin’s father, Glenn Vernon Martin, was a strict man with high expectations of his son, and the actor and comedian has been quoted saying that they didn’t get on well at all throughout most of his childhood and adolescence. Nonetheless, Glenn’s periodic dabbling in acting inspired Steve Martin with an affinity for show business – an affinity that Martin wasted no time in realizing, finding employment in Disneyland when he was still only ten years old. It was there that Steve Martin learned the first tricks of his trade, performing as a magician and illusionist, and he would continue to refine these skills during his years in college. Initially performing in night clubs and small-time television productions, Martin’s first success came with an unexpected suddenness when, at only 23 years old, he was awarded a Primetime Emmy together with the other writers of “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour”. This was a significant start to Steve’s net worth.

After this sudden triumph, Steve Martin’s career was quick to take off. Martin appeared as a stand-up comedian in several popular television talk shows, including NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” – where his performances met with enormous success, bumping the show’s audience up by roughly a million viewers. Steve’s net worth rose accordingly, but subsequently he released a number of comedy albums, and all this combined to win Martin the sort of devoted fan-base usually associated with rock stars, not comedians – which, in turn, opened the door for his film debut. Martin has since gone on to appear in countless successful films, including the 1984 smash hit “All of Me”, in which Martin appeared alongside fellow comedian Lily Tomlin. Martin’s appearances in almost 60 films have won him worldwide fame, and they are often considered to be the main source of his staggering net worth – although, with a career as varied as Steve Martin’s who can ever truly tell? His appearances in almost as many TV series’ and shows have surely contributed just as much to Steve’s wealth, plus his works as a writer and producer are significant too. Suffice to say that Steve’s net worth is reputed to have doubled in the last five years.

In his personal life, Steve Martin was married to actress Victoria Tennant(1986-94), and now lives married to the writer and journalist Anne Stringfield, with whom he had his first child in 2012. Though Martin remains a high-profile figure, appearing in a number of recent productions, the star performer and actor keeps his private life strictly off limits – to the point where he hasn’t even disclosed the gender of his recently-born child to the public.

7 Was one of the first celebrities to pay tribute to Robin Williams (on his Twitter feed) and as such his tribute was featured in many news reports on Williams' death.
8 His business card reads "This certifies that you have had a personal encounter with me, and that you found me warm, polite, intelligent, and funny.".

17 Like friend Lorne Michaels' and fellow showbiz heavyweights Paul Simon and Mike Nichols, Martin has had his portrait painted by Eric Fischl.
18 Father, with Anne Springfield, of a daughter born in December 2012.
19 He was one of the victims of a gang of German art forgers, who made an estimated 16 million Euros. In 2004, Steve bought a counterfeit painting of the artist "Campendonk". Luckily, he sold the painting in 2006 before the forgeries were discovered.
20 Played C.D. Bales in Roxanne (1987), which was based on the play Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand. His Grand Canyon (1991) and The Pink Panther (2006) cast mate, Kevin Kline, played Cyrano on stage.
21 Learned to play the banjo by playing LPs at 16rpm speed. This approach enabled him to more accurately pick the individual notes due to the halved playback LP speed.
22 When Martin lived in his Manhattan apartment, his next door neighbor was Mary Steenburgen.
23 Fan of Carl Ballantine. Presented him the Lifetime Achievement Fellowship from the Magic Castle in Hollywood in 2007.
24 Has a dog named Wally.
25 Attended Rancho Alamitos his freshman and sophomore years. He was the freshman class president, and a member of the cheer leading squad at Rancho where some of his zany comical routines were first tested out. When the school boundaries were shifted, they put him in Garden Grove high school attendance area. He graduated from Garden Grove High School in 1963. GGHS opened in 1921 and RAHS opened in 1957.
26 Although many critics were disdainful of his overtly silly act early in his career, its postmodern nature was admired by avant garde filmmakers David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick, both of whom approached Martin to appear in ultimately unproduced comedy films.
27 Co-wrote two songs with Martin Mull: "Men" appearing on the album "I'm Everyone That I Have Ever Loved" and "Westward Ho!" appearing on the album "Sex & Violins".
28 Appeared on the college circuit in the 1970s with fellow musical comedian Martin Mull as "The Steve Martin Mull Show".
29 Was Warner Bros. second choice for the role of The Riddler in Batman Forever (1995) (after Robin Williams ). However he turned it down as with the death of his good friend John Candy and his divorce from Victoria Tennant he was too sad to make any movies.
30 Told Terry Gross on her National Public Radio program "Fresh Air" that he smoked a fair amount of marijuana in the late 1960s until one night when he had a panic attack at a showing of the Mel Brooks movie The Producers (1967). After that, he never smoked pot again, and he believes that the negative experience saved him from the harder drug abuse and addiction that plagued so many of his colleagues during the next few decades.
31 2007: Recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors. Other recipients that year were Leon Fleisher, Diana Ross, Martin Scorsese, and Brian Wilson.
32 Even though during his stand up days he said he was a "wild and crazy guy", in real life he is actually quite shy and quiet.
33 Has a sister named Melinda.
34 He is a huge fan of British comedian David Walliams.
35 Wore his Inspector Clouseau mustache during his 2007 wedding because he is reprising his role for the upcoming sequel to The Pink Panther (2006).
36 2007: Best man during his wedding to Anne Stringfield was Lorne Michaels, creator of Saturday Night Live (1975).
37 His wife is a writer for The New Yorker.
38 After inviting friends including Tom Hanks, Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy to a dinner party, he married his longtime girlfriend Anne Stringfield in a surprise ceremony at their Los Angeles home.
39 Went to the same college--Cal State Long Beach--as Frank Miranda.
40 Is a fan of the animated series Dave the Barbarian (2004).
41 Fell into depression for a couple of months when his good friend John Candy died.
42 Lists British television (especially the comedies) as his biggest influence.
43 Was on an episode of The Dating Game (1965) before he was famous in 1966. He won a date with an old friend named Marscha Walker, whom he had not seen in three years. He appeared on the show again the next year and won again. He wore the same shirt and jacket.
44 Like 'Weird Al' Yankovic, did a satire sketch of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" music video on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962).
45 Is a member of Mensa, as are James Woods, Ben Rollins.
46 November 2005: A production of his play "The Underpants" was directed by Brian Barney for Bruka Theatre, Reno, NV.
47 Says his favorite movie of his own is Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987).
48 His performance as "Navin Johnson" in The Jerk (1979) is ranked #66 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
49 Some sources state he is a fan of the BBC science fiction series Doctor Who (1963). However, in a 2013 interview in the UK's "Uncut" magazine, he revealed this was not true and he believed it had started as a false claim by someone on the internet.
50 Was considered for the role of "Willy Wonka" in the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005).
51 His performance as "Navin Johnson" in The Jerk (1979) was ranked #99 among Premiere Magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Film Performances of All Time (2006).

53 2005: Recipient of the 8th annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, awarded by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
54 Attended Lampson Intermediate School (now Ralston Intermediate) in Garden Grove, California.
55 Was listed as a potential nominee on both the 2004 and 2007 Razzie Award nominating ballots. He was listed as a suggestion in the Worst Actor category for the films Bringing Down the House (2003) and Cheaper by the Dozen (2003), and in the Worst Supporting Actor category for his role in Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003) on the 2004 ballot. He was suggested again three years later in the Worst Actor category on the 2007 ballot for his performance in The Pink Panther (2006), but he failed to receive any one of these nominations. He later ended up receiving his first Razzie nomination for The Pink Panther 2 (2009).
56 At his insistence, the 1987-1988 season premiere of Saturday Night Live (1975) (hosted by Martin) went on, despite the fact that there hadn't been a dress rehearsal. There was a fire in a nearby studio and the cast and crew were evacuated from Rockefeller Center just before dress rehearsal was scheduled to begin.
57 Is skilled with a rope or lasso and did his own rope work in ¡Three Amigos! (1986). He also plays the harmonica.
58 Chosen as #6 in Comedy Central's 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time
59 Was voted Most Talented by his classmates at Garden Grove high school.
60 Played the banjo in his guest appearance on the The Muppet Show (1976).
61 2003: Was listed as #50 in People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" List.
62 His study of philosophy was a source of much of his material for his 1970s standup act.
63 He is a fan of Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969). This led to him being the host/narrator of the documentary Parrot Sketch Not Included: Twenty Years of Monty Python (1989).
64 Contrary to popular belief, Martin was never a cast member on NBC's Saturday Night Live (1975). However, he holds the records for guest appearances (25) on the show (followed closely by Buck Henry), hosting (at 15 times, he sets the standard for the SNL "Five Timers Club"), and hosting in a single season (3). He is also the only person to have hosted a season premiere, a season finale, and a Christmas show. He was also scheduled to host for the ill-fated 1980-1981 season, but a writers strike prevented this.
65 Graduated from Garden Grove High School in 1963. He attended Rancho Alamitos High School in the beginning of his high school career, but then high school attendance areas were changed, and he had to start going to Garden Grove. He was also a cheerleader at Rancho and often did his King Tut dance.
66 Once had a job at Disneyland in the Magic Shop on Main Street, USA. He also worked for neighboring amusement park Knott's Berry Farm as a comedian in their "Birdcage Theatre". It was during these jobs that he honed his skills in live performance, such as improv comedy, banjo playing, juggling, and lassoing. It was at Knott's Berry Farm where he met his friend, Stormie Omartian.
67 Studied philosophy at California State University at Long Beach, and for a while, considered becoming a philosophy professor instead of an actor-comedian. He periodically spoofed his philosophy studies in his 1970s stand-up act, such as comparing Philosophy with studying Geology: "If you're studying Geology, which is all facts, as soon as you get out of school you forget it all, but Philosophy you remember just enough to screw you up for the rest of your life.".
68 He is in the horn section of B.B. King's "In The Midnight Hour" music video.
69 Is a trustee of the Los Angeles Museum of Art, and collects the art of Georgia O'Keeffe, Richard Diebenkorn, Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Cy Twombly, Helen Frankenthaler, Edward Hopper, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, and Pablo Picasso.
70 Stanley Kubrick liked his work in The Jerk (1979) and once considered having him play Bill Harford in Eyes Wide Shut (1999); the role that later went to Tom Cruise.
71 Is an accomplished banjo player and appears playing the instrument in Earl Scruggs and Friends video for "Foggy Mountain Breakdown," for which he won a Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance. This makes him rare in that he has won Grammies for both comedy and music.

#Quote
1 When you're young, criticism is a go ahead. You almost want it.
2 I was in London in the early '80s and I did the Parkinson (1971) show. I got a call from Stanley Kubrick, who said he'd like to meet me. I went up to his house and I was overwhelmed. I had only done one movie, The Jerk (1979). He was very complimentary and he had seen me on Parkinson's show. He viewed his serious movies as comedies. So we played chess and he showed me around his store rooms where he had these huge rooms of open files of - I don't know how to describe them - like library stacks. He had screening rooms, too, where he reviewed every print. This was 1980 and he was still reviewing prints of 2001, before they'd go out. Every print. One thing that struck me, he had files of press reviews marked "Favorable" or "Hostile". But he was very, very nice.
3 You have to remember, I live in an ivory tower so I don't really know what's going on out there. But I love Sacha Baron Cohen's work. I thought Borat (Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006)) was a breakthrough comedy, something I really, really had not seen before.
4 [Uncut magazine "An Audience With... Steve Martin" May 2013] There's a rumor that I'm a big fan of Doctor Who (1963), but I don't even know who Doctor Who (1963) is! That's one of those internet things. It's on some website that collects data on celebrities, it's just one of those things someone posted that's completely in error. I don't know. What is Doctor Who (1963)? I don't know a thing about it, but I'll be a fan if it'll help me in any way.
5 When I first started, I really decided to be a comedian, so I underplayed the banjo. I didn't want it to be a music show, I wanted it to be a comedy show. I subordinated the banjo and the music because I didn't have anybody to play with. It was just me. And music always sounds better when you've got some other people.
6 When I heard that Richard Gere was not nominated for his great performance in Chicago (2002) , I said to myself, 'Welcome to my world, Richard Gere.
7 I love money. I love everything about it. I've bought some pretty good stuff. Got me a $300 pair of socks, got a fur sink. Let's see, bought an electric dog polisher, a gasoline-powered turtleneck sweater, and, of course, I bought some dumb stuff, too.
8 I've learned through the years that offstage chemistry has absolutely no bearing with onstage or on-film chemistry.
9 [on Lorne Michaels] Lorne is the kind of power producer who can get things done with simply a phone call. Especially pedicures.
10 I always felt there was a deeper meaning to what I was doing than just being wild and crazy, something more philosophical. I had a view that there was something funny about trying to be funny. I needed a theory behind it in order to justify it at the time, but now I don't. I see it for what it was. It was just fun, and it was stupid, and that's why it was so successful.
11 [to Alec Baldwin when same-sex weddings were legalized in New York] Alec! Now we can get married! (Baldwin's response: 'Okay, but if you play that effing banjo after eleven o'clock...')
12 [on playing banjo with the Steep Canyon Rangers] This is an accident. And, by the way, when I say comedy was a means of getting myself into film, that was an accident too.
13 A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
14 I loved doing Pennies from Heaven (1981). Because you have to understand that I'd been doing comedy for 15 to 20 years, and suddenly along came the opportunity to do this beautiful film. It was so emotional to me. I loved it. I don't think it was a good career move, but I have no regrets about doing it.
15 I wish I could do a lot of things different. I'm not going to tell you what they are, but if I had a list of all my films right now, I'd go, "Okay, I'll cross that one out and cross that one out and cross that one out and cross that one out." Really. But I've made over 40 films. How can I not have some losers in there?
16 In Bowfinger (1999), there's a scene where Eddie Murphy has to run across a freeway. The studio people all said, "We've got to cut this. It's too expensive". I said, "You can't cut the funniest scene in the movie! We're making a comedy - if you cut the funniest scene what are we making?" And it did turn out to be the funniest scene.
17 These Pink Panther movies are a great opportunity to use my physical chops. And I love doing that stuff. These zany or extreme movies are hard to find. I did one in the 90s, Bowfinger (1999), which was attempting to do that. But it's difficult to come up with something to justify the slapstick. I'm lucky I found this series. Because in what other film would I be able to fall down a chimney or jog on top of a spinning globe? I can't imagine it.
18 There's a big difference between the National Book Awards and the Academy Awards. At the Academy Awards you can feel the greed and envy and ego. Whereas the National Book Awards are in New York.
19 What is a movie star? A movie star is many things. They can be tall, short, thin, or skinny. They can be Democrats . . . or skinny.
20 I've written a lot about L.A., and I always describe it as beautiful. To me, human relationships can be sad, can be exhilarating - but it's not a product of the city. And it takes different forms. Like, in New York, you're always with people. You can't go outdoors, you can't go into the subway, you can't go anywhere without running into people you don't know. But in L.A., you really have to work a bit to be exposed. You have to be standing in a shop, you have to join a club, or join a community service thing, or go to a nightclub in order to meet people. Because there's not the same transitory proximity to other people.
21 I lost 20 pounds - actually, I lost 25 pounds, but then I gained 5 back because I was too skinny. I didn't change what I ate, I just started eating smaller portions. And I cut out bread - that's the real killer, because I was reaching in and eating half a loaf before dinner arrived. All you have to do is that, and then you can drink all you want.
22 Comedians don't get Oscars, so I gave up on that a long time ago. And I can't really speak about the Oscar-worthiness of my own performance.
23 [upon receiving a particularly unremarkable award] When I first found out that I was going to win this award, I tried really hard - to care. And then I realized; we are all here tonight, because of a common love: me.
24 [From People Magazine, 5/20/03, in which he was listed as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World] It's very hard being one of the most beautiful people. Having this kind of beauty is actually a burden. Sometimes I go to a party and not one of the other 49 most beautiful people is there. That makes me feel very solitary and alone, because it means I am the most beautiful person in the room. If I'm going to a party where I know there will be "less-beautiful people," I try to "dress down" in order to hide my beauty. But this seems to have a counter-effect of actually making me more beautiful. I guess me and dungarees are a pretty potent combination. I try not to lord my beauty over others. This is very hard. I try not to mention that I am one of the most beautiful people, but somehow it always comes out. I will usually only bring it up when I'm asked to do a task, like open a garage door. People seem to enjoy my beauty and are genuinely happy for me, because after I mention it they always say, "How nice for you."
25 I believe entertainment can aspire to be art, and can become art, but if you set out to make art you are an idiot.
26 Chaos in the midst of chaos isn't funny, but chaos in the midst of order is.
27 All I've ever wanted was an honest week's pay for an honest day's work.
28 I wrote a novel this year called "Shop Girl", and several producers came to me and wanted to turn it into a movie. And I said, "If you think you're going to take this book and change it around, and Hollywoodize it and change the ending . . . that's going to cost you."
29 [while hosting The 73rd Annual Academy Awards (2001)] And now, I'm pleased to introduce the star of the film Gladiator (2000), and a man I like to call a close, personal friend, but he told me not to . . .
30 What is comedy? Comedy is the art of making people laugh without making them puke.
31 The greatest thing you can do is surprise yourself.
32 I believe that sex is the most beautiful, natural, and wholesome thing that money can buy.
