Al Pacino's Net Worth Is Higher Than You Think

Al Pacino is undoubtedly one of Hollywood's most iconic and celebrated actors. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Pacino was born on April 25th, 1940 in East Harlem, Manhattan. While he might be one of the most successful people on the planet, he found himself unemployed and homeless during the early days of his acting career. After being rejected from acting companies, things started to look up when he was eventually accepted into HB Studio. His teacher, Charlie Laughton, took the aspiring actor under his wing and mentored him. Pacino started performing in plays in the late 1960s. Before he knew it, he became a movie star. The rest would soon become history.

Since his breakthrough role as Michael Corleone in 1972's The Godfather, Pacino's career has gone from strength to strength and helped him land more big roles in Scarface, ...And Justice for All, Sea of Love, Scent of a Woman, and, most recently, 2019's The Irishman. During his five-decade strong career, Pacino has earned an Academy Award, two Tony Awards, two Primetime Emmy Awards, and four Golden Globes, and it's all very much deserved.
