Mark Ruffalo is a well-known American director, actor, and activist. In the past few years, he has started to gain a lot more attention due to his acting in ‘The Hulk’ films as well as both of the ‘Avengers’ films.
Besides his remarkable acting achievements, he is also an activist and advocate for several movements and foundations.
Born on November 22, 1967, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Ruffalo spent his teenage years in Virginia Beach, Virginia, before moving with his family to San Diego after high school. He eventually settled in Los Angeles, studying acting at the Stella Adler Conservatory and subsequently co-founding the Orpheus Theatre Company. The theater was a platform for Ruffalo’s own acting and he landed small parts on TV and in films as well, but it was a meeting with playwright Kenneth Lonergan that changed his fate.
Ruffalo began appearing in Lonergan’s plays, notably This Is Our Youth, which led to his landing the male lead in Lonergan’s soon-to-follow film You Can Count on Me (2000). Ruffalo’s performance drew critical and popular attention, and he took his first steps onto the Hollywood map. Notable roles came one after the next, and Ruffalo had prominent parts in such films as XX/XY (2002), Windtalkers (2002) and In the Cut (2003).
While Mark was at the Orpheus Company, he was able to land acting gigs in ‘Safe Men,’ ‘The Dentist,’ and ‘Ride with the Devil.’
Soon as luck would have it, the playwright Kenneth Lonergan showed up and decided to put on a few plays. Mark got the opportunity to act in the plays as well as Lonergan’s film ‘You Can Count on Me.’ The critically acclaimed film got Mark several awards and helped him establish himself in Hollywood.
He later went on the act in ‘The Last Castle,’ ‘Windtalkers,’ and ‘XX/YY.’
In 2002 he took a brief break from acting as he had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. The tumor was benign, and the surgery left his face partially paralyzed for a short amount of time.
A year later, he returned with ‘In the Cut’ and ‘View from the Top’ and neither one of them were received well by the fans.
Continuing into the early 2000s Mark went on to act in some incredible films including ‘13 going on 30,’ ‘We Don’t Live Here Anymore,’ ‘Just like Heaven,’ ‘Reservation Road,’ ‘What Doesn’t Kill You’ and many more.
In the year 2009, the first movie he ever directed was released, and it was called ‘Sympathy for Delicious.’
He made his appearance as the Hulk in ‘The Avengers’ in 2012, and once again in 2015 for ‘Avengers Age of Ultron.’
In 2014, Mark Ruffalo starred in a Broadway play called ‘The Normal Heart,’ and it got him an Emmy award nomination. His film ‘Foxcatcher’ was released later that same year and he earned both Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations.
Ruffalo then starred in ‘The Avengers: Infinity War’ & ‘Avengers: End Game’, alongside the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Josh Brolin and more. The movies became two of the highest-grossing movies of all time.
As of 2021, Mark Ruffalo’s net worth is estimated to be $35 million.
