Richard Dreyfuss Net Worth 2020– Richard Dreyfuss might not have the most recognizable name or face in Hollywood even though his repertoire of work suggests he should, seeing that he was once the youngest person to win an Academy Award for Best Actor.
Richard Dreyfuss was born Richard Stephen Dreyfus to Jewish parents; Geraldine and Norman Dreyfus on the 29th of October, 1947 in Brooklyn, New York. Dreyfuss spent his formative years in New York and then Europe, before returning to the United States at the age of nine to live in Los Angeles, California.
From a young age, while attending Beverly Hills High School, Dreyfuss began learning how to act at the Westside Jewish Community Center and at the Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills Arts Center.
By the time he was 15, he was able to land his first acting job in the television production of In Mama’s House.
After graduating from high school, Dreyfuss enrolled at San Fernando Valley State College, what is today known as California State University, Northridge.
After one year in college, Dreyfuss left school to pursue his acting career as he was also working in alternate service as a clerk in a hospital after having conscientiously objected to serving in the Vietnam War.
He appeared in a number of small television roles before moving to New York to perform on and off Broadway, among other theatres.
In 1973, after having made a few minor and uncredited appearances in a number of movies, Richard Dreyfuss was able to land his first major movie roles, first in the gangster film Dillinger and then in the comedy American Graffiti, which earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor.
His performances in these movies earned him the leading role in The Apprenticeship of DuddyKravitz (1974) which he gained more plaudits for his performance.
In the following years, Richard Dreyfuss starred in the Steven Spielberg directed films Jaws (1975) and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) as well as in The Goodbye Girl (1977) which he was awarded an Academy and Golden Globe Award for his performance.
In recent time, after having battled drug use in the late 70s and 80s and then taken some time off acting, Dreyfuss has appeared in movies like Nuts (1987), The Education of Max Bickford (2001-02) and The Old Man Who Read Love Stories (2001), among others television and theatre roles.
