What is Gene Hackman’s net worth?
Few actors in Hollywood history have done it as long or as well as Gene Hackman. Just a few years after debuting, he starred in the 1967 hit Bonnie and Clyde, and from there, the successes followed one another (in a good way). After that, it didn’t take long for him to establish himself as a star, and in the later stages of his career, Keanu Reeves cut his salary just to share the screen with him. Hackmen spent nearly 50 years in show business before pursuing other personal passions, and he’s amassed an impressive net worth as an actor.
Hackman’s acting career has been long and varied
Between early television roles and the big screen, Hackman appeared on camera for six decades, from the late 1950s to the early 2000s. And he seemingly did it all.
Hackman has starred in prestigious Oscar-winning films such as Bonnie and Clyde, The French connectionand unforgiven. He won Oscars for his roles in the last two films, but he didn’t settle for critically acclaimed films.
Hackman’s CV includes fan favorites such as Superman, Hoosiers, The replacements, The Royal Tenenbaumsand alongside Denzel Washington in Crimson Tide, just to name a few. He was never shy about challenging himself or playing a role just for fun.
Along the way Hackman has worked alongside actors such as Reeves, Tom Cruise, Kevin Costner, Robin Williams, Clint Eastwood, Denzel Washington and Warren Beatty. Along with collaborating with notable co-stars, Hackman has amassed an impressive net worth during his time in Hollywood.
Hackman’s net worth is impressive
There’s a lot of money to be made in Hollywood. Even though Hackman is no longer acting, he has had a lot of screen time and his net worth of $80 million (per Celebrity Net Worth) reflects this.
Several Hackman films reached nine figures at the box office. The company ($270.3 million), enemy of the state ($250.6 million) and Superman 2 ($190.4 million) are his three highest-grossing films, according to Numbers.
The majority of this net worth comes from acting. Hackman has over 100 acting credits on his resume and only one producer credit – for the 2000s under suspicion.
What is he doing now?
Hackman’s last role was as retired chairman Monroe Cole in 2004 Welcome to Mooseport. (We do not count the release in 2006 of Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut since its theatrical release in 1980).

Hackman is a writer and novelist with seven books to his name, according to Good reads. He has sole writing credit on his two most recent books, 2011 Refund at morning peak and 2013 Pursuit.
