Jason Statham has been a name in British and American films for a couple decades now. He’s had time to build up a resume in everything from gang and action films to more serious fare. Still, the question remains—how does he fare when it comes to tracking that oh-so-popular measuring stick of financial success, net worth? Let’s take a look.
When it comes to net worth, one of the biggest questions that arises is the issue of influence. After all, as John Donne famously put it, “No man is an island,” and that’s certainly the case when it comes to the entertainment and economic factors at play in determining something such as the net worth of an actor like Jason Statham, who has made a good deal of his reputation and fortune starring in films by Guy Ritchie.
Of course, Statham isn’t alone in sharing a special, long-running relationship with a director. Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese have collaborated quite a few times. Marcello Mastroianni and Federico Fellini made some of the best films of all-time together. Nevertheless, that tie represents both an asset and potential liability. On the one hand, the two definitely work well together. On the other hand, being too dependent on an outside force can present a liability to one’s portfolio when it comes to calculating net worth. For example, a company’s dependency on the viability of oil prices might count that dependence as a liability if it’s severe enough to pose a crippling problem in the event of a shortage.
In fairness to Statham, he’s branched out from that bond with Ritchie and made other lucrative films, such as his role as the latest antagonist in the Fast and the Furious franchise. To date, his films have grossed more than a billion dollars worldwide, with Stratham himself able to take home a tidy fraction of that figure, with an estimated net worth of $50 million—a figure that might well rise with more future successes such as the Transporter series.
Finally, fixed assets provide a further boost to Statham’s overall net worth. While liquid assets such as cash and stock can form part of one’s overall net worth, fixed assets can do the same, and with a lovely and valuable home to his name, Jason Statham has a solid fixed asset to go along with all that box office bounty.
