Tim Burton Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Timothy Walter Burton was born on 25 August 1958, in Burbank, California USA. He is a well-known movie director, writer, artist and producer, particularly known for such movies as “Sleepy Hollow”, “Planet of the Apes”, “Edward Scissorhands”, “Dark Shadows”, and “Alice in Wonderland”. Tim is also known for his friendship with Johnny Depp, with whom he has created many successful movies. During his career, Tim has been nominated for and has won numerous awards. Some of them include Academy award, Golden Globe Award, Emmy Award, Producers Guild of America Award, BAFTA Award and many others. Burton still continues his career creating new, successful and interesting movies.

So how rich is Tim Burton? Sources estimate that Burton’s net worth is $140 million. Tim mainly gained this sum of money through his career as a movie director, although his other activities have also added to Tim’s net worth. If Tim continues his career for a long time, there is a high chance that this sum of money will become higher. Hopefully, his fans soon will hear about his new work and will be able to see new movies directed by Tim.

Tim Burton Net Worth $140 Million

From an early age, Tim Burton was interested in movie making, beginning with short films. Tim attended Burbank High School and later continued his studies at the California Institute of the Arts. Soon after his graduation he began working in Walt Disney Productions’ animation department. Tim worked on such movies as “The Black Cauldron”, “The Fox and the Hound” and “Tron”. This was the time when Tim Burton’s net worth began growing.

Step by step Burton became more recognizable and famous. In 1984 Tim made a short movie called “Frankenweenie”. In 1985 Tim directed the movie entitled “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”, which added a lot to his net worth. During the making of this movie Tim worked together with Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Jeffrey Jones and others. In 1989 Tim directed “Batman” and gained a lot of praise and the movie became one of the most successful of Tim’s movies. In 1990 Tim collaborated with Johnny Depp on the movie, entitled “Beetlejuice”. This collaboration was a start of a long-lasting friendship and Johnny later appeared in many of Tim’s movies, for example “Ed Wood”, “Corpse Bride”, “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and others. These movies gained huge success and had a huge impact on the growth of Tim Burton’s net worth. Some of the recent works of Tim include, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and “Big Eyes”. What is more, Burton is also working on new projects, which will be released in upcoming years.

In addition to his work in the movie industry, Burton has also released two books: “The Art of Tim Burton” and “The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories”. These books also increased Tim’s net worth. Luckily, Tim has many ideas and he is planning to fulfill them in the near future. This only means that soon we will see his new work.

To talk about Tim Burton’s personal life, it can be said that in 1987 he married Lena Gieseke. Sadly, their marriage ended in 1991. Later Tim had relationships with Lisa Marie Smith, and Helena Bonham Carter with whom he has two children. All in all, Tim Burton is one of the most talented movie directors. He has created a lot of successful and acclaimed movies, which are famous all over the world. Hopefully, the list will only become longer in the future.

#Quote
1 [on Johnny Depp] Johnny's always wanting to sort of hide behind a character, become a character. I've always loved great character actors.
2 [on Michelle Pfeiffer as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in "Batman Returns"] I don't really go back and look at the movies but her performance in that was one of my favorite performances of anything by anyone in any movie that I've worked on. It was just the best. Really, I'll never forget her in that... I just have all these memories of her - letting a live bird fly out of her mouth and learning to use the whip and jumping around rooftop sets in high heels. The work and just the performance were very, very impressive.
3 [on living in England] I love the weather more than in California. I am serious! You know, you can go for a walk in any kind of weather. In Los Angeles you immediately arouse suspicion when you're out without a car.
4 All these kinds of stories, whether it be The Wizard of Oz (1939) or Alice in Wonderland (2010), are an internal journey. I think that's a fairly universal concept. These characters represent things inside the human psyche. I think that's what every child does. You try to work out problems as you go along. Same thing as an adult. Some people get therapy, some people get to make movies.
5 If you've ever had that feeling of loneliness, of being an outsider, it never quite leaves you. You can be happy or successful or whatever, but that thing still stays within you.
6 [on Batman Begins (2005)] "I saw a tape of it. It was very touching. Very good."
7 I always liked strange characters.
8 I've always loved the idea of fairy tales, but somehow I never managed to completely connect with them. What interests me is taking those classic images and themes and trying to contemporize them a bit. I believe folk tales and fairy tales have some sort of psychological foundation that makes that possible.
9 I grew up watching things like The Brain That Wouldn't Die (1962) on Saturday afternoon television. There's a guy with his arm ripped off and blood smeared all over the wall. I never saw it as negative. I find that stuff, when it's not rooted in reality, to be cathartic.
10 I've always been misrepresented. You know, I could dress in a clown costume and laugh with the happy people but they'd still say I'm a dark personality.
11 It is unfortunate that Disney closed down its drawn-animation unit. I find it quite upsetting, because they made a few drawn movies that weren't successful and they went, `Well, that is dead, so we have to go to computers.' They forget that the reason that they have been successful is because Pixar [whose films Disney distributes] makes good movies. Success is the real reason people try to copy things in Hollywood. Someday someone will do a beautiful cell- animation film that connects with people and then someone will say, `We have to go and do that again.' The number-one priority should be that the story and the medium are compatible.
12 [Becoming a movie director] "There was one moment, and it happened in school. I had a big final exam--we were supposed to write a 20-page report on this book about Houdini [Harry Houdini]. I probably would have loved reading it, but I didn't, so I just decided to make a little super-8 movie based on it. I tied myself to the railroad tracks and all that. I mean, this is kid stuff, but it impressed the teacher, and I got an A. And that was maybe my first turning point, when I said, 'Yeah, I wouldn't mind being a filmmaker.' "
13 In Hollywood, they think drawn animation doesn't work anymore, computers are the way. They forget that the reason computers are the way is that Pixar makes good movies. So everybody tries to copy Pixar. They're relying too much on the technology and not enough on the artists. The fact that Disney closed down its cel animation division is frightening to me. Someday soon, somebody will come along and do a drawn-animated film, and it'll be beautiful and connect with people, and they'll all go, 'Oh, we've got to do that!' It's ridiculous.
14 [on style] I remember, I was at Cal Arts and I wasn't a good life-drawer; I struggled with that realistic style of drawing. And one day I was sitting in Farmer's Market sketching, and it was this weird, mind-blowing experience. I said, 'Goddamit, I don't care if I can't draw, I'm just gonna draw how I feel about it.' All of a sudden I had my own personal breakthrough, and then I could draw, and satisfied myself. I've had very few experiences like that, and I'll never forget it.
15 [on picking screenplays] I wouldn't know a good script if it bit me in the face.
16 [on cult director Edward D. Wood Jr.] "Nobody had his style. That's something I try to do in my films. You have your own kind of cryptic messages in there - cryptic things that most people wouldn't understand but are important to you. Things that kind of keep you going through the process."
17 [on the stress of delivering a summer movie in an era when release dates are often set by studios before a script is finished] It's like you're a runner and they beat the shit out of you and break your legs right before you're supposed to race, and then they say, 'Now go win the race.'
18 [on WB's lame suggestions for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)] "They thought the Charlie character should be more proactive and that Wonka should be more of a father figure, and I'm sitting there thinking, 'Willy Wonka is NOT a father figure! If that's your idea of a father figure, yikes. Willy Wonka's a weirdo.' "
19 I'll always remember this image of being in line to see When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth (1970), and all the younger kids were like, 'Dinosaurs are so cool!' and all the older kids were like, 'Oh, man, I hear there's this really hot babe in this movie!'
20 [About working with Jack Nicholson on Batman (1989)] "By the time Jack walks onto the set, he feels very clear and strong about the character. So when you're shooting it's great, because that's when you toy around with the levels of how broad to go."
21 [Talking about the Batman characters]: "These are some of the wildest characters in comics and yet, they seem the most real to me."
22 [the approach you have to take in movies] " . . . you always have to feel like it's gonna be the greatest, even if it's a . . . you know . . . piece of crap."
23 [suburbia] "I think the atmosphere that I grew up in, yes, there was a subtext of normalcy. I don't even know what the word means, but it's stuck in my brain. It's weird. I don't know if it's specifically American, or American in the time I grew up, but there's a very strong sense of categorization and conformity. I remember being forced to go to Sunday school for a number of years, even though my parents were not religious. No one was really religious; it was just the framework. There was no passion for it. No passion for anything. Just a quiet, kind of floaty, kind of semi-oppressive, blank palette that you're living in."
24 Anybody who knows me knows I would never read a comic book. And I certainly would never read anything written by Kevin Smith.
25 [memories] "I remember when I was younger, I had these two windows in my room, nice windows that looked out onto the lawn, and for some reason my parents walled them up and gave me this little slit window that I had to climb up on a desk to see out of. To this day I never asked them why; I should ask them."
26 [genres] "I had never really done something that was more of a horror film, and it's funny, because those are the kind of movies that I like probably more than any other genre. The script had images in it that I liked ."
27 [commenting on the demolition of the Landmark casino in Las Vegas for the film Mars Attacks! (1996)] "It was like watching something die."
28 You don't know whether chimps are going to kill you or kiss you. They're very open on some levels and much more evil in a certain way.
