Hollywood is still reeling from the news of actor William Hurt's death at the age of 71. He left a legacy through his remarkable body of work as an actor, but aside from his memorable characters, Hurt might have also left behind a sizeable net worth.
CelebrityNetWorth claims that Hurt might have been worth about $8 million at the time of his death, but the website provides little to no actual justification for such a number. Meanwhile, TheRichest estimates that Hurt could have been worth $15 million, but also doesn’t provide information to support their estimate.
However, Hurt's finances were referenced as a matter of public record in 1989, when he was sued by former romantic partner Sandra Jennings. Jennings estimated that he could have earned anywhere between $5 to $10 million between the years 1981 and 1989, but it is unclear whether those estimates were accurate.
