The famous English actor is very popular in Hollywood for his antihero roles and sometimes performing his own stage combat and stunts. Jason is best known for his outstanding performances in high-grossing movies like “The Italian Job”, “The Transporter” series as well as “The Expendables” series, “Crank” among others. He’s also one of the big names who joined the famous “Fast and the Furious” franchise. While he made a cameo appearance in “Fast & Furious” 6, Jason starred in Furious 7 and “The Fate of the Furious.”
In addition to being a talented actor, the Derbyshire-born star is also good in martial arts and competitive diving which has come in handy in his career as he has become a big shot in the industry for performing most of his stunts in movies by himself.
Jason Statham’s Early Life and Career Beginnings
Born on 26 July 1967 in Shirebrook, Derbyshire, England, Jason was attracted to football, martial arts as well as diving from when he was still a little child. As a teenager, he decided not to follow his father’s line of work at the local market stalls. Thus, he took his passion for martial arts and diving to the next level as he became a member of the “National Diving Squad” for twelve years. Moreover, he also competed at the 1990 Commonwealth Games for England.
Also, with the help of football player Vinnie Jones who was his childhood friend, Jason was able to make a name on the football pitch. But, he still didn’t feel like he was doing enough for himself. Eventually, Jason took his first step in the entertainment industry when he started modeling for “French Connection”. This experience was a groundbreaking one as it opened many doors to the success he enjoys today. Jason also appeared in a few music videos following his modeling career.
After making a few music videos, he was introduced to British director Guy Ritchie who was developing a film project and needed to fill the role of a street-wise con artist at the time. When Ritchie heard about Statham’s past as a black market salesman, he decided that he would be the perfect match for the character. Thus, Jason was cast to play the role of “Bacon” in his 1998 crime comedy thriller videos, “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”.
Apparently, Jason still had a taste of his father’s kind of work before he made it in the movie industry. Notably, Jason, at a time when the going became tough, sold fake perfumes and jewelry on the streets to make ends meet. Notwithstanding, his debut movie pushed him to the spotlight as it was well-received by critics and the creme de la creme in the industry. Subsequently, he climbed to fame with his next movie “Snatch”, released in 2000. Afterward, Jason became a famous actor in Hollywood, appearing in movies alongside popular Hollywood stars. He also influenced a slew of characters in comic books.
Analysis of His Net Worth and How He Made His Money
After putting his days of struggling to survive behind him, Jason now has the audacity to live a lavish life; thanks to his $90 million net worth. It has never been a secret that his acting career is the major source of his massive wealth and the reason he’s been a multi-millionaire for years but as you would soon learn, the English actor has other sources of income.
Jason Statham Receives As Much as $13 Million Per Movie Role
For someone who has been a part of the movie industry since 1998 and has pulled off as much as 50 movie roles, it is only natural for one to expect that Jason has made millions from his career. What’s more? he has become one of Hollywood’s most popular actors and his movies have thus far grossed over $7 billion at the box office. Jason has many top-notch movies like “Mean Machine”, “The Bank Job”, “The Mechanic” “The Expendables” and much more under his belt. Mostly noted for being typecast as an antihero, Jason has also been a part of action and comedy movies like “London”, “Crank: High Voltage” and more.
You will also find him in movies like “Snatch”, “Turn It Up”, “Ghost of Mars”, “The One”, “Collateral”, “Death Race”, “In The Name Of The King”, and “Wildcard”. Jason’s most popular works include the “Transporter” series, “The Italian Job”, “Fast And Furious 6”, “Furious 7”, “Cellular”, “The Pink Panther”, and “Spy” wherein he showed off his comedic chops.
All of these projects have added heavily to Jason Statham’s net worth. It has been estimated on various quarters that he receives as much as $13 million per movie role. With more movies in the pipeline, it is not out of place for one to predict that the net worth of the English actor would attain and exceed the $100 million mark in the nearest future.
He Has Made Millions from Endorsement Deals
Given the caliber of an actor he is, and considering the numerous popular productions he has been a part of, it comes as no surprise that Jason Statham is someone known across the globe. Such a level of popularity always gets the attention of popular brands; as such, it can only be expected that Jason has been approached by multiple companies that want to have him endorse their products or the services they offer.
Sometime in 2019, after his movie The Meg was released, it was reported that the English actor landed a brand endorsement deal with Saleen Automotive, a company known for manufacturing high-performance sports cars and automotive parts. The action movie star is the brand ambassador for Saleen in China. What he earned from this has never been disclosed to the public but given the clout Jason commands as a world-renowned action movie star, the amount involved must have so far added a significant amount to the estimated, total value of his wealth.
Apart from Saleen, the Fast and Furious actor has endorsement deals with Audi, Burton, Jaguar, Gazprom G-Energy, and French Connection.
Earnings from Video Games
It is hard to make a list of the finest Hollywood action movie stars without Jason Statham being named therein. Once upon a time, he inspired the Manchester University Press to launch an academic study that was meant to analyze the impact he’s had on the British and American film industries.
For an actor of such making known for action movies and for performing some of his stunts, Jason is a suitable personality to feature in video games and unsurprisingly, he has been seen in some of them. The actor is a character named Shrike in “Red Faction II”, a first-person shooter game published by THQ for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube. The game was developed by Volition.
You will also find Jason as Sergeant Water in “Call of Duty”, another first-person shooter video game. Published by Activision, the game was developed by Infinity Ward. He was also featured as a Team Leader in 2015’s mobile game, “Sniper X with Jason Statham”. What he has made through this avenue is not known to the public.
Jason Statham Has Also Made Huge Sums from Flipping Properties
Jason once owned a 3,909 square feet beach house in Malibu California. The house had an expanded master suite, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two kitchens, a guest house, a spa, and an outdoor shower. Records suggest he bought the home for $10.625 million in 2009. The actor made a huge profit from the home as it sold for $18.5 million in January 2020.
In March 2020, it was reported that Statham listed his property in Sunset Strip, Los Angeles, asking for $6.995 million. He acquired the 3,000 square feet home with four bedrooms and three bathrooms for $2.7 Million in 2015. This was the same year he bought his Beverly Hills home where he currently lives with his family for $13 million.
Also in 2015, Jason sold his Outpost Estate mansion to Johnny Galecki for $9.2 million. It is said that he bought the 5,334 square feet, six bedrooms, and six bathrooms property from Ben Stiller for $7.325 million in August 2011.
The Actor Spends His Money On Luxury Cars
It is hard to think of an actor who has displayed his love for automobiles both on the screen and in real life. Jason Statham movies like The Transporter series and Death Race portrayed him as a car fanatic and we all loved his performance in these movies. The fact that Jason Statham is a petrolhead in real life might have helped him put up the incredible performances.
In his movies, the English actor has been seen with cars like Audi A8 6.0 W12 Facelift (Transporter 3), Ford Mustang GT (Death Race), 2003 Mini Cooper S (The Italian Job); Chevrolet Fast Attack and Aston Martin DB9 (Furious 7); Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster and Audi A8 6.0 W12 (Transporter 2); Mercedes-Benz W140 and BMW 735i E38 (Transporter); and a 2004 Pontiac GTO in The Mechanic.
Those are all fine rides and the ones he owns in real life definitely matchup with them if they must be compared. Jason has an extensive collection of cars in real life that includes a Jaguar XJR, Mercedes-Benz S63, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Audi RS 6, Audi S8, Audi R8, Jaguar E-Type, Aston Martin DBS Volante, Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640, and a Porsche 911 GT2.

They Have a Son, Are Engaged, But Yet to Get Married
Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington have been together for over a decade. While they have kept their relationship private to some extent, they have shared that the secret to their longevity revolves around the fact that they enjoy being together. As Jason described it, they get “drunk and float around the swimming pool”.
After dating for over five years, Jason and Rosiegot engaged in January 2016. The model was seen with a white diamond ring at the Golden Globes red carpet in 2016. It quickly circulated that she had been engaged by Jason and her representative would later confirm this to be true.
