Gilbert was born on 18 July 1969, in Waterbury, Connecticut USA, of part-Swedish descent, and is a novelist, memoirist, biographer, and short story writer, perhaps best known for writing the 2006 memoir “Eat, Pray, Love”., which would be on the New York Times Best Seller list for 199 weeks. All of her efforts have helped put her net worth to where it is today.
How rich is Elizabeth Gilbert? As of late-2016, sources estimate a net worth that is at $25 million, mostly earned through a successful career as a writer. “Eat, Pray, Love” would become a film that was released in 2010. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will increase.
Elizabeth Gilbert Net Worth $25 million
Elizabeth grew up on a farm which did not have a television, so they read a lot of books, and from an early age, she and her sister would write books as well as plays to entertain themselves. She would later attend New York University and would graduate with a degree in political science in 1991. Afterwards, she would have several jobs, including as a cook, bartender, and magazine employee; she mentioned some of her experiences in the book “The Last American Man”.
Two years after graduating, Esquire unusually published Elizabeth’s short story before she had released a book, the first in a magazine since Norman Mailer. Thanks to the exposure, she would be hired by various national magazines as a journalist; she wrote for The New York Times Magazine, Allure, GQ, and Travel + Leisure, and her net worth started to increase thanks to this freelance writing, which she would later detail in “Eat, Pray, Love”.
In 1997, she wrote the story “The Muse of the Coyote Ugly Saloon” for GQ and it would become the inspiration for the film “Coyote Ugly” in 2000. She also wrote a profile of Hank Williams III called “The Ghost”, which would become part of Best American Magazine Writing in 2001.
While she was doing freelance writing, she published her first book entitled “Pilgrims” which was a collection of short stories, which won a Pushcart Prize and was a finalist for the Pen/Hemingway Award. In 2000, she released a novel entitled “Stern Men”., and two years later she would publish “The Last American Man” which became a nomination for the non-fiction National Book Award. Her most popular work, “Eat, Pray, Love” would be released in 2006, which chronicled a year spent travelling abroad. Its longevity on the New York Times Best Seller List in 2006 would eventually led to an appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” a year later; the film adaptation was released in 2010 with Julia Roberts as the lead role. The success of the book and film helped elevate Gilbert’s net worth considerably.
Elizabeth continued writing, releasing “Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage” in 2010, which continued where “Eat, Pray, Love” left off, and covered the period during which she came to be married. Two years later, she republished a cookbook written by her great grandmother entitled “At Home on the Range”, and published another novel a year later entitled “The Signature of All Things”. In 2015, she released a self-help book entitled “Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear”, which included a variety of topics.
For her personal life, it is known that Gilbert married Michael Cooper whom she met at the Coyote Ugly Saloon, in 1994, and their marriage would last until divorce in 2002. Five years later she would marry Jose Nunes, who was mentioned in “Eat, Pray, Love”. The two would start an Asian import store business that would eventually be sold. In 2016, the two would separate, which Elizabeth admitted was because of her relationship with writer Rayya Elias.

|1||Having a baby is like getting a tattoo on your face. You really need to be certain it's what you want before you commit.|
|2||I have a great deal of sympathy for any cockamamie theory that tries to find meaning in randomness.|
|3||I have trouble with orthodoxy in any form. I feel, having studied the 19th century evolutionary debate, a newfound sympathy for the pain that this discovery brought to people who - prior to Darwin - would have happily called themselves men of science and men of God. We now have a world full of scientists who have no faith and the faithful who have no reason, and that's a great loss for all of us.|
|4||There is absolutely no ethical argument in defense of eating animals, and I eat them because I like to, you know? I know it's wrong, but I like hamburger because I like it. Also, sainthood can be extremely irritating.|
|5||[on considering spiritual ideas] I think I'll be exploring those ideas forever. I've spent my entire life chasing wonder, and that word to me is synonymous with spirituality. I don't know what else there is to talk about.|
|6||On Frenchtown, New Jersey: I love Frenchtown. I believe in this town. I think it's a remarkable place. And I definitely have been trying to lure people here who I feel like would get it or get something out of it.|
|1||In July 2016, Elizabeth Gilbert announced the end of her marriage to José Nunes (the man called "Felipe" in her book "Eat, Pray, Love" and its movie adaptation). Then, in September 2016, Gilbert further revealed (in a Facebook post) that the reason for that marriage's breakup was that she had fallen in love with her best friend of 15 years, Rayya Elias--something Gilbert only realized after Elias was diagnosed with incurable pancreatic and liver cancers. About Elias, Gilbert wrote: "She's my best friend, yes, but it's always been bigger than that. She's my role model, my traveling companion, my most reliable source of light, my fortitude, my most trusted confidante. In short, she is my PERSON....something happened to my heart and mind in the days and weeks following Rayya's diagnosis. Death-or the prospect of death-has a way of clearing away everything that is not real, and in that space of stark and utter realness, I was faced with this truth: I do not merely love Rayya; I am in love with Rayya. And I have no more time for denying that truth. The thought of someday sitting in a hospital room with her, holding her hand and watching her slide away, without ever having let her (or myself!) know the extent of my true feelings for her...well, that thought was unthinkable. Here is the thing about truth: Once you see it, you cannot un-see it. So that truth, once it came to my heart's attention, could not be ignored....For those of you who are doing the math here, and who are wondering if this situation is why my marriage came to an end this spring, the simple answer is yes. ... So. Here is where we stand now: Rayya and I are together. I love her, and she loves me. I'm walking through this cancer journey with her, not only as her friend, but as her partner. I am exactly where I need to be-the only place I can be.".|
