Actually, it is interesting to know that Yeardley was mocked at school by her classmates simply because of her voice which had an unusual sound. Well, as we know now, it was not  an obstacle for Yeardley in her life, but very much an asset as it became a main source of Yeardley Smith’s net worth. It is known that she had always dreamt of being an actress, and it did happen in 1982. Two years later Smith moved to New York City and started appearing on Broadway, one of those early productions being named “The Real Thing”. Subsequently Yeardley appeared in the movie “Heaven Help Us  in 1985, and following this success, Yeardley performed in “Maximum Overdrive” and “The Legend of Billie Jean”. The incomes from these movies undoubtedly increased Yeardley Smith’s net worth.

In 1986 Yeardley Smith moved once again, this time to Los Angeles, and  immediately increased her net worth while appearing in various shows, the first of which was “Brothers”. After that Yeardley became a star of “The Simpsons”. It is well known that at first she was the voice of the character named Bart Simpson, but her voice was not appropriate for this character, so then Yeardley switched to Lisa Simpson. It has been officially announced that Yeardley Smith earns approximately $300.000 per episode, but all these performances not only helped Yeardley to enlarge her net worth, she also received a Primetime Emmy Award, undoubtedly for her portrayal of Lisa Simpson.

As regards Yeardley Smith’s film credits, she has also appeared in such movies as”Toys, City Slickers” and “As Good As It Gets”.  Her involvement in the children’s film industry inspired Yeardley to write a couple of books for children, which also added large incomes to Yeardley Smith’s net worth. Currently Yeardley is working as an executive producer in the area of independent films.

In a perhaps surprising departure from her normal work, Yeadley Smith launched a women’s shoe line called Marchez VousIn 2011. We may only guess how much it will increase Yeardley Smith’s net worth in the future.

In her personal life, Yeardley Smith married English-Canadian actor Christopher Grove in 1990, but they divorced after two years. She married Daniel Erickson in 2002, but the marriage ended in divorce in 2008.

#Fact
1 Doing a one woman show in New York at the Union Square Theatre [April 2004]
2 Starring in Balancing Act at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank, California. [April 2007]
3 Played the droid character EV-9D9 (major domo of Jabba's droids) in the NPR radio dramatization of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) [1996].
4 Of the core 6 Simpsons performers, Yeardley is the youngest.
5 Her name is pronounced "Yard-lee".
6 Is only one of two actresses (the other being Marcia Wallace) on The Simpsons (1989) to regularly play only one character. All of the other actors play ten or more characters.
7 Originally read for the role of "Bart" when auditioning for The Simpsons (1989), but her voice was too high and sounded like a girl, so she lightened her voice up a little and then auditioned and won the role of "Lisa". Nancy Cartwright had originally read for "Lisa", but was given the role of "Bart" instead.
8 Her father, J.Y. Smith, who died in 2006, was a longtime obituary writer for The Washington Post.

#Quote
1 Everybody sort of questioned why we get married on New Year's Day, and of course, the avid sports fans wouldn't come, because they had to watch the Rose Bowl or whatever that is on that day.
2 Romance is dead - it was acquired in a hostile takeover by Hallmark and Disney, homogenized, and sold off piece by piece.
3 Oh no, the dead have risen and they're voting Republican.
4 A man who envies our family is a man who needs help.
5 Is your remarkably sexist drivel intentional, or just some horrible mistake?
6 You can't create a monster, then whine when it stomps on a few buildings.
7 Being a part of "As Good as It Gets" was a great job for me. It was fun taking a bit of a break from playing Lisa Simpson and doing real actual live-action camera work. I enjoyed having the honor of working with Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Greg Kinnear. And especially that cute little dog. Overall, I enjoyed working on the film, and I wish I at least got an Oscar nomination.
8 In my dreams, I was Rita Hayworth, Kim Basinger. I just wanted to be that long, tall drink of water with flowing blond hair and large blue eyes and cheekbones you could actually see - you know, be that. And I wasn't, so I hated myself. I'd beat myself up, tear myself to shreds. Now I've made peace with it. I don't mind it at all; I'd rather be who I am. It's comfortable. It's me. I got weary of putting so much energy into hating myself".
9 It's usually character stuff that I'm offered unless they want a real offbeat leading role. Most of the time, I'm everybody's best friend. Or their annoying friend. It's like the story of my life. I will never get to play the Cinderella roles.
10 Actually, you wouldn't believe how many people come up to me and say 'This is my fantasy: to be in bed with Lisa Simpson and have her say "Oh more, more!"' What is the matter with you people? This is sick! -- on the Australian talk show "Denton".
