Asia Argento Net Worth $16 Million

Although her parents, actress Daria Nicolodi, and film director and screenwriter Dario Argento named her Asia, the city registry declined the name as a valid one, and her given name became Aria. However, as she was growing up, her parents called her Asia, and she bore the name into her professional career.

During her childhood, Asia got so little attention from her parents since they were quite busy working, so Asia was somewhat depressed and lonely.

However, her father used to read his own scripts to her as bedtime stories, and this only woke up her creativity. She wrote a book of poems before she turned ten years old, and also made an acting debut when she was cast in a minor role in the film directed by Sergio Citti, before in 1986 being cast in the film “Demons 2”, written and produced by her father. After that, Asia starred in the film “Zoo” in 1988, for which she won the Italian Golden Globe Award in the category Best Actress, and appeared in the horror “The Church” (1989) – on which her father also worked – alongside Nick Alexander, and Michele Soavi. Three years later she starred in the romantic drama “Close Friends”, while in 1993 she was given the lead role in the horror film “Trauma” (1993), directed by Dario Argento. Asia’s name was becoming more popular in Italian film industry, and with such successful films as “Perdiamoci di vista” (1994), “La syndrome di Stendhal” (1996), and “Il fatasma dell’ opera” (1998), only cemented her high position in the industry and with the public.

Thanks to her success in Italy, she tried herself in American productions, and made her debut in the mystery drama film “New Rose Hotel” (1998), next to Christopher Walken and Willem Dafoe, and the same year she starred in the romantic crime drama “B. Monkey”, directed by Michael Radford. She continued to appear in English language films throughout the early and mid- 2000s, making a breakthrough with the role of Yelena in the action film “xXx” (2002), starring Vin Diesel and Marton Csokas. She then appeared in Gus Van Sant’s biopic about legendary Seattle musician Kurt Cobain’s “Last Days” in 2005, and the same year starred in the horror “Land of the Dead”, alongside John Leguizamo and Simon Baker, while in 2006 she played Comtesse du Barry in the biopic about Marie Antoinette, who was played by Kirsten Dunst.

She then returned to Europe and expanded her filmography with such successful films as “Mother of Tears” (2007) and “The Last Mistress” the same year, while in 2008 she appeared in Bertrand Bonello’s war drama “On War”. In 2011 she portrayed Martina in Stefano Chiantini’s drama film “Isole”, for which she received an Italian Golden Globe for Best Actress, and the same year appeared in another Italian film “Glis fiorati”, followed by the French film “Cadences Obstinées”. Most recently, she has been working on the thriller “The Executrix”, which will be released late in 2017.

Aside from acting, Asia followed her father into writing and directing; some of her most successful enterprises are the drama film “Scarlet Diva” (2000), then another drama “The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things” (2004), and “Incompresa” (2014), which have also added to her wealth.

Regarding her personal life, Asia was married to film director Michele Civetta from 2008 until 2013; the couple has a son together. She has a daughter with her ex-boyfriend Marco Castoldi, born in 2001.

Most recent reports tell that Asia has commenced a romantic relationship with Anthony Bourdain.

1Often dresses in black
1Movies have saved my life and I'm so grateful. I'm so shy and weird that if I didn't find a place in the world through movies, I don't know what I would've become.
2Italy to me is like the mean mother. Whatever I do, it's never good enough. People say I'm the queen of Cannes, but in Italy I get turned down for work.
3In Italy people think I'm a cliché. The dark lady, the bitch from hell. All they can see is that I'm naked.
4I always saw myself as really ugly. My father even told me I was ugly because I would shave my head and look like a boy. Then, when I was 21, I was offered this part in a movie where I was supposed to be really sexy [Michael Radford's B. Monkey (1998)]. It was strange for me to have to research femininity, but I found out these tricks for getting attention that I didn't know before. It was a kind of revenge, I guess, on all the kids who said I was ugly at school.
5After xXx (2002) came out, because of all the publicity, I was wearing Prada and going to the gym, and I had an agent in L.A. and all this shit that I've avoided for years. I felt that was expected of me, that I had to be a sexy bombshell. I started receiving all these offers for these kick-ass chick sort of roles. But it didn't make me very happy, to tell the truth, and after giving birth, it all felt different. I don't mean to sound like a bourgeois moralist, but it's true--I started thinking, "What is Anna [her daughter] going to think?"
6I tend to be a lazy actress, unless I'm pushed. Most of the time nothing much is required of directors, which is a pity. I've worked with very few directors who've asked of me what I asked of myself.
7In a way, when you talk so much about something, it does not belong to you any more. It's happened to me and my bad memories. I've manipulated them and now they could be parts of Gone with the Wind (1939).
8The questions about my father [director Dario Argento] get less and less, and I'm relieved about that. No, I wasn't upset by the things he did to me in his films. I never thought of it like it was me doing it, because he would say, "It's only a movie," and I thought the same.
9I have nothing in my life besides my work. I am obsessed with it. I leave my house only when I'm forced to. All my life, I have felt that what I did was wrong. But now when I work I feel good about it.
10Sometimes I think my father [director Dario Argento] gave me life because he needed a lead actress for his films.
11I care only about that. Almost only about cinema.
12I want to be adopted by the French. I want to go to live in Paris. I want to live in a country where a guy like Gaspar Noé can direct his films without going to jail. I don't want to live in Italy, the country of the apes, and end up being an actress with an onion placed where I once had a heart, that instead of beating, it stinks.
13[in answer to the question "How do you want to be remembered?"] As somebody who has done everything, but didn't know how to do anything.
14During the shooting of my directorial debut, I must never let myself go to any goliardery, even if I might think I am missing some fun, never mingle with the rest of the crew, because they are actors while I am the mirth of a rickety poem. They are solo artists, virtuosos - but I am the orchestra, the strings carpet where everybody has to lay. They are the public, while I am tonight's special event. I allow them to be instantly well-liked, but I must remain rigorous to reveal my eyes, I have to act out the things that never happen. When I think of my film, I don't take anything from the reality that I know, I suck only from the utopia/reality I would want to live. When I say my lines, the I have written for myself, I think about this, of a womb-like world where amniotic liquids protect me from injustices and the boogey man.
