Ben Whishaw’s Disappointing Net Worth In 2023 Despite Hit Roles In Criminal Justice And Perfume

Being one of the well-known names in the entertainment industry with roles in big projects, including ‘Criminal Justice’ and ‘Perfume,’ Ben Whishaw’s net worth presents a contrast to his career. Let’s see how much the actor made throughout the years with all his films, shows, and plays!

Since his debut in the 1999 film ‘The Trench,’ Ben Whishaw rose to fame in the world of acting, appearing on both the big and small screens as well as the stage.

One of Whishaw’s notable films, ‘Perfume,’ released in 2006, made $135 million at the box office against a budget of $60 million. His performance in the BBC series ‘Criminal Justice’ also gained him a lot of attention and positive reviews. But, despite these successes and many awards over the years, the actor’s current net worth seems unexpectedly low.

TV Shows And His Success In ‘Criminal Justice’

In ‘Criminal Justice,’ which first aired in 2008, Whishaw played the role of Ben Coulter, a young man caught up in a murder case after a night out. The series, featuring actors like Pete Postlethwaite and Lindsay Duncan, was well-received, drawing in 5.62 million viewers for its first episode. Whishaw’s acting in the series was praised, as he won awards at the International Emmy Awards and the Royal Television Society Awards.

In the upcoming years, the actor also appeared in other shows like ‘London Spy,’ ‘This Is Going To Hurt,’ ‘Fargo’ and ‘The Hour,’ getting good reviews for his performance despite having supporting roles in most of them.

Film, Theater, And Many Awards

Whishaw’s film career includes roles in movies like ‘Layer Cake,’ ‘Bright Star,’ ‘Brideshead Revisited,’ ‘Cloud Atlas,’ ‘Skyfall,’ and notably, ‘Perfume: The Story of a Murderer.’ In ‘Perfume,’ he played Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, which earned him critical praise and nominations, including a People’s Choice Award and a win at the European Film Awards.

His theater work is also worth mentioning, with performances in plays like ‘Hamlet,’ ‘The Seagull,’ and ‘Julius Caesar.’ His portrayal of Hamlet in 2004 received good reviews and nominations, including for the Olivier Award.

The Actor’s Net Worth

According to some reports, Whishaw’s film projects made around $2 billion at the box office worldwide, and his TV projects brought him millions of dollars throughout his 24-year career. Some sources even speculated that the actor became one of the highest-paid actors, with more than $80 million in earnings. But this year’s estimated numbers shared by Celebrity Net Worth showed that Whishaw’s real net worth stood at only $2 million.
