What Is Clint Howard’s Net Worth
Being raised in a family of actors, you’d expect Clinton Engle Howard to be a millionaire. But Clint Howard only has an estimated net worth of $4 million.
Clint Howard is an American actor who was born into the acting world. Both his parents, Rance and Jean Howard were actors.
He’s the brother of Ron Howard who is also an actor, director, and filmmaker.
Clint Howard’s net is surprising considering how long he’s been in the industry. His brother, Ron Howard, with whom they’ve been in the industry together has a net worth of $200 million.
For a veteran artiste who has more than 200 credits in movies and had been in the show industry for over 60 years, Clint is expected to be a billionaire.
Clint gets most of his earnings from movie sales, where he has recorded large sales over the years.
But before he became successful as an actor despite starting from an early age, Howard had been a normal person with money.
Comparing his net worth and that of his brother is not a fair game. Over the years Ron evolved from being a show actor to a filmmaker and a director. While Clint continued on the path of an ordinary actor.
So, it is evident that his brother Ron Howard will have more earnings than him.
When the brothers lost their father in 2017, they wrote a book called “The Boys: A Memoir of Hollywood and Family” to commemorate his impact on their lives as young actors and now Veterans.
Clint Howard made most of his earnings from the sale of this book, and the book deal increased his net worth by a wide margin.
However, Clint made a bit of a fortune from several appearances in some movies.
|2007||The Jungle Book; Voice of Hathi Jr||$303,300,000|
|2008||Nixon movie as Lloyd Davis; EMS worker in Twilight movie; A Plumm Summer as Binky The Clown||$421,110,000|
