Timothée Chalamet’s Net Worth
Timothée Chalamet’s net worth is estimated to be around $30 million.
What we know about him:
- He was one of the main contenders for Spider-Man in the MCU. He was upended by Tom Holland who ultimately got the role, and thus Timothée went on to star in Dune instead for $2.2 million. Based on what Tom Holland made directly as a result of his Spider-Man role, Timothee lost out on upwards of $30 million in earnings by not getting the Spider-Man role. Also noteworthy is that Zendaya, for her 7 minutes of screen time in Dune, was paid a hefty $300k for it.
- It is speculated that he got paid $2 million for being the face and ambassador of the Bleu De Chanel fragrance.
- Timothée Chalamet made $9 million for his role in the musical film, “Wonka.”
- Timothée made $350k for “Bones and All.”
- He made $3 million for “Beautiful Boy.”
- We don’t know exactly how much Timothée made for his role in “Don’t Look Up,” but with the $75 million budget going mostly towards DiCaprio ($55 million), Meryl Streep (who normally takes around $24 million per role), and Jennifer Lawrence, it’s unlikely that he took home much as the movie was already spilling over its budget and had to be increased at some point.
Timothée Chalamet’s family
Timothée Chalamet grew up in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen. His father, of French descent, worked as an editor for Unicef, while his American mother was a dancer and had performed on Broadway. From a young age, Chalamet was exposed to a mix of cultures, spending his summers in France with his family. This blend of cultures is reflected in his fluency in both English and French.
Chalamet’s passion for the arts was evident early on. His older sister, Pauline, is also an actress, and the family has several ties to the entertainment industry. His aunt, Amy Lippman, is a producer and writer known for projects like “Party of Five” and “Masters of Sex.”
His uncle, Rodman Flender, is a TV director, and his grandfather, Harold Flender, was a screenwriter and novelist. Chalamet has mentioned that seeing Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker in “The Dark Knight” at the age of 12 was a pivotal moment that made him want to pursue acting.
