Joaquin Phoenix's Net Worth Will See a Major Boost From Joker

Joaquin Phoenix went from a child TV actor to a Hollywood star with his work in films like Gladiator and Walk the Line, and his role in the newly released Joker is already garnering award show buzz.

What We Know About Joaquin Phoenix's Net Worth

Phoenix is pretty open about his childhood and even his relationship with fellow actor Rooney Mara , but less is known about his financial status. Here's what we know about Phoenix's net worth.

Joaquin Phoenix's net worth is $35 million.

In recent years, Phoenix has starred in movies like Her and Inherent Vice. And as the Daily Mail reports, his salary has varied throughout his career. Phoenix reportedly earned $375,000 for 2000's Quills, but got $3.5 million for Walk the Line. Gladiator is Phoenix's highest-grossest movie worldwide (so far), but his salary for that movie is unknown.

It's also unclear how much Phoenix will be paid for Joker, but the film is already off to an amazing start. The movie brought in an October record for Thursday night previews with $13.3 million, and it's now the widest October opening of all-time, as it debuted in over 4,300 locations. It also looks like Joker will break the October opening weekend record set last year by Venom, and it'll probably become Phoenix's most successful film thus far.

Phoenix has supported many organizations like Amnesty International and the Peace Alliance. He's also on the board of directors for The Lunchbox Fund, a non-profit organization which provides daily meals to students of township schools in Soweto, South Africa.

Joaquin Phoenix is also vegan, and he's an avid animal rights' supporter. He has appeared in ads for PETA , and he narrated the 2005 documentary Earthlings , which explained "humankind's total dependence on animals for economic purposes."
