Wallace Shawn Net Worth $8 Million Dollars

Wallace Shawn Net Worth: Wallace Shawn is an American actor, playwright and essayist that has a net worth of $8 million dollars. Produced November 12, 1943 in NYC, NY, he’s famous for film parts in My Dinner with Andre (1981), The Princess Bride (1987) and lending his voice to the animated movie Toy Story, the animated television shows King of the Hill and Family Guy. He’s guest-starred on such television shows as Murphy Brown, HBO show Sex and the City, Gossip Girl and repeat appearances in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993-1999). Shawn is an acclaimed playwright and essayist whose politically charged work is a far cry from the lighthearted appearances usually connected with him. In 1975, Shawn’s play Our Late Night started off Broadway as well as the production earned them an Obie Award (the Tony for off Broadway theatre). Right now, Shawn was still working in a copy shop to make ends meet, but things changed when Woody Allen cast him in a modest part in Allen’s film Manhattan.

In 1980, Shawn and Gregory collaborated with filmmaker Louis Malle on My Dinner with Andre, an uncommon and engaging movie according to a performance piece by Shawn and stage director Andre Gregory in which the two buddies discussed their doctrines and extremely different life journeys. The movie proved to be a significant critical success and also a small hit on the art house circuit. My Dinner with Andre gave Shawn a considerably higher profile as both an actor and also a playwright, and over the following several years successful productions of The Resort Play, Aunt Dan and Lemon and The Fever were also staged in The Big Apple.

#Quote
1The actor's role in the community is quite unlike anyone else's. Businessmen, for example, don't take their clothes off or cry in front of strangers in the course of their work. Actors do.
2When I was first starting to write plays, I quite literally had never heard of the idea of studying playwriting. I wouldn't have studied it even if I had heard of it.
3When I was first exposed to the films of Ingmar Bergman, I found them frank and disturbing portraits of the world we live in, but that was not something that displeased me. They were beautiful. I thought people would respond to my plays the way I responded to Bergman's films.
4You can go to a play that is enjoyable because it's funny, and then on the next night you can go to a play that's enjoyable because it's 'disturbing.'
5My personal life is lived as 'me,' but my professional life is lived as other people. In other words, when I go to the office, I lie down, dream, and become 'someone else.' That's my job.
6In my mind, the plays I was writing were extreme examples of art for art's sake. I didn't necessarily think that other people would love them, though I thought they probably would.
7I'm not proud to be me, I'm not excited to be me, but I find that I am me, and like most other individuals, I send out little signals; I tell everyone else how everything looks from where I am.
8I wrote my first play at the age of 10, 55 years ago, and I've always found it a fantastic relief to imagine I know what things would be like from the point of view of other individuals and to send out signals from where I actually am not. Playwrights never need to write from the place where they are.
9I think the whole system of education would change if I were in charge and had the ability to make changes. I don't think I would keep Princeton exactly being Princeton.
10I led the life of an intellectual up until a certain age. I remember Freud's 'Interpretation of Dreams' was a big favorite when I was 11. It sounded so interesting. And it really was!
11I sincerely believe that if Bush and Cheney recognized the full humanity of other people's mothers around the world, they wouldn't commit the crimes they commit.
12I grew up. I began to think the United States had some problems that really required the help of artistic people to solve. And I gave myself permission to be a writer instead of a civil servant.
13For me, a play is a form of writing which isn't complete until it is interpreted by actors. But it's still a form of writing. And so most of my time is spent thinking about how to write a sentence.
14I started writing plays in around 1967, and at a certain point, I thought, 'I'm writing plays, I should learn about acting and what it is.' So I went to the HB Studio in New York, and I was there for about nine months.
15My plays have been strange from the beginning, and they never got unstrange.
16The life of an actor can be very enviable.
17In terms of number of movies, I've been in an extraordinary amount. If you count only the minutes I'm onscreen, it's not so long.
18Patriotism is considered to be an emotion a person ought to feel. But why? Why is it nobler to love your own country than to love someone else's?
19In my early 20s, I studied history and politics, and I really thought that perhaps I would devote my life to that.
20If I had even the tiniest scrap of advice to give to a young actor who was figuring out how to audition, I would say don't memorize the script... The reality about auditions is that 98 percent of the results has to do with what you are, not with what you did in the audition.
21I'm afraid that the passage of time is mostly lost on me. If you were to open up my head you would see that I'm still brooding about statements, songs and issues from the third grade. The years between 1980 and today went by very, very quickly.
22For some reason, people find me funny. It's quite hard to define why a thought is funny. It's even harder to define why a person would be funny. It's a word that I can't define at all. But whether I know quite what it is or not, I seem to be it.
23You know, I haven't written as much as most other writers. Certainly maybe those who keep a more regular schedule accomplish more.
24There's nothing regular about my life at all, really. I don't keep a regular schedule and every day is different. It's all rather chaotic.
25But because we've all been readers, we know what the experience is like, and we hope that what certain writers have given to us, we will give to someone.
26When I was a child, I did always feel that people were hiding things, and that they weren't expressing their true feelings. When adults are too complicated, and cover their emotions with layers of well-intentioned subterfuge, the child isn't seeing reality clearly enough and gets upset.
27Children, I always think, are just putting on a performance of being naive and not understanding anything. I have worked with children in films, and they're treated as adults and they just drop the pretense of being children.
28After being in one movie, it didn't seem like that would be my life. I had done several jobs, briefly. I'd been a shipping clerk, I worked in a copy shop, I didn't think the acting was going to go on and on.
29Before I was 5, I did have a lot of time on my hands. I had no job and really no career, and I spent an awful lot of time listening to records. It was more the classical ones, really - Prokofiev, and I think there was some Mozart in there, and more impressionistic composers like Delius.
30I have an enormous appetite to see life as I know it presented in front of my eyes.
31I have been vain since birth. I expected other people to like what I did, although my vanity has definitely diminished over the years.
32I don't have a television, and I'm just not too up on television.
33I know that I am one and I've made a living as an actor and I enjoy being an actor, but when I'm not actually doing it, I forget that I do it.
34I don't see that many plays, and for me, musicals are rarely pleasing.
35I never planned to be an actor. It turned out I could make a living doing it.
36I'm a very lucky man. It's a beautiful thing for a writer, to see people allowing your words to enter their own unconscious and their souls.
37I'm being mocked because I don't live up to a socially determined view of what other people think a person should look like.
38I never grew up thinking, 'One day I will play so and so' because I wasn't expecting to be an actor at all.
39I spend most of my time thinking about things like laundry and buying stationery supplies.
40I do things, and other people laugh at them. I rarely know what the joke is supposed to be or why they're laughing.
41Acting is an escape from the boring person that I am in real life.
42And my singing, I don't think I could sing Wagner or opera, but I could probably carry a tune. I was in a musical once, but it was never performed.
43As writers, we can't predict who might come along who might find our offerings valuable.
44Even with my wife, I find sharing soup is hard.
45I probably have a higher opinion of my writing than the average person, at least when I'm in a good mood, but I don't really think of my plays as only being relevant to a particular month or year.
46I choose parts because I don't want to be embarrassed when the movie comes out. What if my friends were to see the movie? What if my niece or nephew wandered into the theater and saw the movie? I don't want to be too ashamed of it.
47I see myself as a citizen of the planet. Even as a child, I always found it mindless to root for your own team. I was puzzled by the fact that people said their own team was better than other teams simply because it was theirs.
48In an amusement park, you can go on a roller coaster that carries you up and down, or you can go on another kind of ride that whirls you around in a circle. Similarly, there are different sorts of entertaining experiences in the theater.
49We are not what we seem. We are more than what we seem. The actor knows that. And because the actor knows that hidden inside himself there's a wizard and a king, he also knows that when he's playing himself in his daily life, he's playing a part, he's performing, just as he's performing when he plays a part on stage.
50In real life, every person is the leading man or woman. We don't think of ourselves as supporting or character actors.
51Acting is trying to be absolutely truthful; to get audiences to believe that you are a dean, when, actually, not only are you not the dean, but if you walked into the building they'd probably throw you out. That's very hard.
52I have been vain since birth.
53My father was a jazz listener, and I think, at least before I was 5, I was not so into that. Although there were records that emphasized percussion that I liked, like Baby Dodds.
54I don't happen to have a sense of humor personally, so I don't know what's funny about a character... This happens to be a feature of my life generally.
55'The Fever' is a one-person play. I decided I would perform it myself, and I decided I would not perform it in theaters, because the character in the play says certain things that I meant.
56It is hard enough to make a plan for how you are going to spend an evening with somebody else. So to make a plan for how you are going to behave in 25 years seems based on a view of life that is incomprehensible to me.
57I was making my living from a joke about my appearance that I didn't understand, and in a way still don't, because when I look in a mirror it doesn't seem funny to me.
58I am recognized a lot for 'Clueless,' but I am recognized a great deal for 'The Princess Bride.' I don't know... maybe everybody who has seen that movie just goes out on the street.
59From being a writer of plays, it was not that surprising that somebody thought of giving me a job as an actor. After I played one part, others came along.
60'The Princess Bride' is by far the most popular film I've ever done. I don't think I'll ever top it.
61Contrary to the popular misconception, the actor is not necessarily a specialist in imitating or portraying what he knows about other people. On the contrary, the actor may simply be a person who's more willing than others to reveal some truths about himself.
62I have more free time than a lot of individuals, so, instead of talking, I sometimes write.
63We're in an emergency situation. The United States has become an absolutely terrifying country, and I would hope that I could participate in some way in stopping the horror and the brutality.
64Interestingly, the actress who, in her own persona, may be gentle, shy, and socially awkward, someone whose hand trembles when pouring a cup of tea for a visiting friend, can convincingly portray an elegant, cruel aristocrat tossing off malicious epigrams in an eighteenth-century chocolate house.
65I don't happen to have a sense of humor personally, so I don't know what's funny about a character... This happens to be a feature of my life generally. I do things, and other people laugh at them. I rarely know what the joke is supposed to be or why they're laughing.
