Robert Duvall has a net worth of $70 million as just an actor, producer, as well as director in the United States. Duvall is regarded as one of America’s most famous performers. His most famous roles are The Godfather and The Godfather Part II. He has indeed been nominated for seven Academy Awards (winning one) and seven Golden Globes as of this writing (winning four). He’s also been nominated for a BAFTA, an Emmy, and a SAG Award.
Robert Duvall made his off-Broadway debut in 1958 at Manhattan’s Gate Theater, playing Frank Gardner in George Bernard Shaw’s Mrs Warren’s Profession. He made his debut television appearance inside the episode “The Jailbreak” on Armstrong Circle Theater in 1959. During the 1960s, he was a frequent guest star on television in action, thriller, detective, as well as crime dramas.
Duvall made his film debut in 1962 as Boo Radley in To Kill a Mockingbird, which received great praise.
It wasn’t until the 1970s that Duvall’s career truly took off. Tom Hagen inside The Godfather (1972) and The Godfather Part II (1973), about which he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor, was his breakthrough performance and the first big critical triumph (1974).
For his role as Lt. Colonel Kilgore inside the 1979 picture Apocalypse Now, Duvall was nominated for just a second Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. For this role, he received a BAFTA Award as well as a Golden Globe Award.
In 2005, President George W. Bush presented Duvall with the National Medal of Arts in the White House. Duvall became the oldest actor ever nominated for such an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his work in the film ten years later, there at age of 84.
Byrnley Farm, Duvall as well as Pedraza’s permanent property, is indeed a 250-year-old Georgian mansion in Fauquier County, Northern Virginia. The property, which spans over 360 acres, was bought by Duvall in 1994.
For his role in the very first Godfather picture, Robert was paid $36,000. That’s $1,000 much more Al Pacino, the co-star. For the second instalment, he was paid $500,000. Duvall was promised a $1 million salary when the third picture was in pre-production. Whereas this was more than quadruple his prior salary (albeit adjusted for inflation), this is nowhere near the $5 million That Al Pacino had been given.
“If they paid Pacino twice what they paid me, that’s OK,” Duvall said on “60 Minutes” in 2004. “But not three or four times, which is what they did.”
