Jon Favreau net worth & biography:

Jonathan Koalia Favreau, better called Jon Favreau, is a talented American actor, comic, film director, voice artist and screenwriter. His face is broadly understood in the pictures Rudy, Very Bad Things, Swingers, The Break-Up and rage television series Friends, where he impersonated Pete Becker, an eccentric millionaire and Monica Geller’s love interest. As a director, Jon got acknowledgement for the pictures Iron Man, Elf and Cowboys & Aliens. Also, Favreau has functioned as the executive producer on Iron Man 3 and The Avengers.

Jon Favreau Net Worth $60 Million Dollars

Since then the son was raised by his dad, who worked as a special education teacher. Although Charles’ fortune never came close to Jon Favreau net worth, he could provide for the secure living of his son. Favreau dropped out for the very first time in 1987 and briefly worked on Wall Street before returning to school in 1988. After one session Jon lost for the second time. This time Favreau understood he’s done with studying and went to Chicago to become an expert comic.

As a director, Favreau debuted with a comedy-crime film Made, which reached the films in 2001. Not only the director directed this picture, Jon has additionally written an original screenplay for the film and starred in it alongside his long time co-worker Vince. Although the film got fairly favorable critical assessments, it had not been a great commercial success and failed to make an important contribution to Jon Favreau net worth. What about his private life? The couple is now raising three kids.

Jon Favreau net worth began to grow in the early 1990s, following his appearance as D-Bob on the sports movie Rudy. A genuine breakthrough in Jon’s professional vocation came up in 1996, as he wrote a screenplay for comedy drama Swingers. In this picture Jon has also starred as Mike Peters, a young struggling comic who recently stopped a long time relationship. This picture has started the professional career of yet another well-known celebrity, Vince Vaughan. Despite his professional achievements, Vaughan’s bundle remains significantly subordinate to Jon Favreau net worth: he possesses some $35 million.

#Quote
1[on his film Chef (2014)] It was nice to work on a little movie like this again, where I have so many responsibilities between writing and directing and acting, and you live and die by your own talents. I missed the feeling of doing something small and personal, where I wouldn't have to explain my vision to anyone but the people I was collaborating with.
2(on briefly working in banking): I gave two weeks' notice a week before Black Monday. But it was very strange because I thought I would be working on Wall Street my whole life. It was the go-go '80s; there were yellow ties. It was just an exciting moment. And although I wasn't involved in the trading side of things, I was still around that culture, and I ultimately decided it just wasn't for me. As a matter of fact, I wanted to be a New York City firefighter. I didn't make it in, though.
3(On directing Mickey Rourke): There was a maze of things that had to be worked through, but it was usually because I was not accurate enough in what I was asking for. To simply say to an actor like Mickey Rourke, ''Stand there and say what's in this comic-book movie,'' is not going work. That ain't why you hire Mickey Rourke.
4I wanted to do a Christmas movie. I had been offered Surviving Christmas (2004), and I opted not to pursue that one any further. And then Elf (2003) came along and I thought it really plays into my sensibilities. I thought the one thing about Will Ferrell that I had not seen him do a lot was show his heart as a person and a performer. In developing the script, although it was edgy and irreverent at times, I wanted to keep it a PG movie, not a PG-13 movie that made fun of Christmas.
5I don't 'handle' people. It's so much easier to manipulate actors than to really have an earnest discussion with them. It's very easy to say whatever's going to appease them and then turn around and do whatever you want to do. It's difficult to be forthright with people, because the job does not lend itself to that.
6I've always wanted to call the shots because I would rather fail than not have a chance to figure it out on my own. I'm a very lazy person by nature. I have to be really engaged, and then I go straight from lazy to obsessive. I couldn't study chemistry, but I could memorize all the books for Dungeons and Dragons. It was ridiculous. The trick is to find what I like to do.
