Mike Myers Net Worth: How Much is He Worth

Mike Myers has an impressive net worth of $175 million. This is the result of years of hard work in the industry. Many don’t realize this but Mike has starred in not one but two very successful franchises with his Shrek franchise being one of the most successful animated franchises to date, having made more than $3.5 billion at the box office. It is also the second highest-grossing animated franchise (behind The Despicable Me animated franchise) and the 16th highest-grossing franchise of all time.

His Austin Powers franchise was an unexpected success and was even nominated for an Academy Award. The series are parodies of the spy genre and characters like James Bond. It also makes fun of the over the top plot lines, underdeveloped characters and consistent sexual innuendos found in these films. Being the creator, writer and producer of the franchise, you can be sure that he was well compensated for his work. All of which contributes to his very ‘healthy’ net worth.
