Thora Birch Net Worth $8 Million

Thora was the eldest child of former adult film actors Jack and Carol Birch, who have managed her career since the start. As a child during the late ‘80s, Birch began appearing in advertisements for “Burger King”, “Quaker Oats” and “California Raisins” among others, then made her film debut in “Purple People Eater” in 1988, in a role which brought her a Youth In Film Award. She then appeared in “Paradise” with Don Johnson, Melanie Griffith and Elijah Wood, and continued acting during the ‘90s, starring in “All I Want for Christmas”, “Hocus Pocus”, “Monkey Trouble”, “Patriot Games”, “Clear and Present Danger” and “Now and Then”, all of which helped establish her net worth.

In 1996 she was cast in the leading role in the action-adventure film “Alaska”, after which she took a break from acting. She returned three years later, portraying the role of Jane Burnham in “American Beauty”, and being nominated for a British Academy of Film and Television Arts award, and earning several accolades including the Screen Actors Guild Award and Young Artist Award. Thora next appeared in supporting roles in “The Smokers” and “Dungeons and Dragons”, and in 2001 landed the lead role alongside Keira Knightley in the horror film “The Hole”.

The same year, she was cast opposite Scarlett Johansson in another lead role in “Ghost World”, and her performance brought her a nomination for a Golden Globe Award. Thora’s Emmy Award nomination came in 2003 for playing in “Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story”. She again appeared in horror films in “Dark Corners” and then in the 2008 slasher “Train”, portraying the leading role. Her net worth continued to rise.

When it comes to her more recent ventures, Birch played the lead character and produced the comedy-drama film “Petunia” in 2012, and after dedicating some time to her academic studies, she returned to acting three years later with a recurring role in the TV series “Colony”. During 2017, Thora is set to star in four films, including “The Etruscan Smile” and “Above Suspicion”.

Thora manages to keep her private life away from the public eyes, so there aren’t many details known. However, when it comes to her love life, she has had two public relationships, one with singer Fred Durst and the other with Bill Maher.

#Fact
1 She was scheduled to make her NY stage debut in an off-Broadway revival of "Dracula". Four days before the play was supposed to open, Birch was fired and asked to leave the theater immediately, due to interference from her manager/father. He had been supervising every detail of his daughter's performance during rehearsals. When he saw another actor giving Birch a back rub, he demanded that the actor stop. The actor in question explained that he was following directions from the play's director. Reportedly, he told the actor, "Listen, man, I'm trying to make this easier on you - don't touch her". The actor felt that Birch's tone was threatening. This led to her being terminated.
2 She was originally cast as Tammy Metzler in Election (1999), but was fired due to creative differences with Alexander Payne. Jessica Campbell replaced her.
3 She was originally cast in the lead role in The Quiet (2005), but dropped out. Camilla Belle replaced her.
4 She auditioned for the role of Natalie in Evil Dead (2013).
5 She bested 4,000 young hopefuls to land the role of Billie Pike in Paradise (1991).
6 Her parents, Jack Birch and Carol Connors, both appeared in supporting roles in Deep Throat (1972).
7 She got her first role at the age of 6 in the short-lived sitcom Day by Day (1988).
8 The family's surname was originally "Biersch," coming from their German Jewish ancestors.
9 Appeared in Moby's video "We Are All Made Of Stars" (2002) and "Eat You Alive" by Limp Bizkit (2003).
10 Was a contributing director for sketch comedy group The Doomed Planet.
11 Is a vegetarian.
12 She is of German, Scandinavian, and Italian descent.
13 Has co-starred with Chris Cooper in two movies, Silver City (2004) and American Beauty (1999), but has never appeared onscreen together with him.
14 Was actually only 16 years old at the time she was filmed nude for a scene in American Beauty (1999). She told TV talk show host Craig Kilborn when she appeared on his show in 2002 that her parents didn't have a problem with her doing a nude scene, despite her being under age, and they encouraged her to go ahead and do it. They agreed that her character's nude scene was so important to the development of her character that they gave their approval.
15 Gained 20 pounds for her role in Ghost World (2001).
16 Older sister of Bolt Birch.
17 Was fired from Election (1999) due to differences with director Alexander Payne.
18 Used to live on her family ranch in East Los Angeles.
19 Does her own stunts.
20 Her parents, Jack Birch & Carol Connors, thought that she would be a boy, and planned on naming the child Thor, after the Norse God of Thunder and Lightning. When she was born, however, her parents feminized the name and called her Thora.
21 Has a Green Belt in Karate.

#Quote
1 I just felt like I was making people angry, because I wouldn't wear the frilly bows. I just didn't take advice and I think people got pissed off at me for not taking advice.
2 (On being fired from Election (1999)) I read the script one way and it became clear that he (Alexander Payne) had seen something else, so that was it. I just thought, this is ridiculous: why is it written this way?
3 I pissed a lot of people off over a long period of time and they found a way to upset me, hoping that upset would bring a change in my behavior. Like a distancing ... But I'm done, I'm done. People wanted me to be not fine. A lot of it was bullshit.
4 I tried to walk a fine line between being alluring and somewhat glamorous but maintain a strong identity and pursue things that were a little more thoughtful, and I guess nobody really wanted women to do that at that time.
5 [on her nude scene in American Beauty (1999)] It was very, very difficult for me to come to terms with it in a personal way. Creatively, I was solid. I understood the importance and significance of that scene and I had known in advance that it was going to happen. As you can imagine, I had spoken with the director, Sam Mendes, and we both agreed it was not a gratuitous scene, rather a very realistic moment in Jane and Ricky's relationship.
6 If I wake up on the wrong side of the bed, I look in the mirror and see the most vile creature. But if I'm feeling comfortable about myself, then I'm more accepting. I'm not like, "Oh my God! look at that gorgeous person." It's just like, "Yeah, okay. That's doable."
7 For me, romance isn't an over-the-top act. It's someone offering to help and to support me. Or if that person thinks I'm making the wrong decision, he'll tell me. I want him to be honest, because being that honest takes a lot of guts.
8 I admire Jodie Foster. Her head is screwed on really well. It's not loose at all.
