Louis Theroux Net Worth $4 Million

Louis is a part of the film-making family; he is a son of the famous writer Paul Theroux, and is a brother of the screenwriter Marcel Theroux. Louis grew up in London, as his family moved there when he was still a toddler. Regarding his education, Louis attended the Westminster School, where he befriended Joe Cornish and Adam Buxton, after which he enrolled at the prestigious Magdalen College of Oxford University, from where he graduated with a degree in history.

Before he had become a recognized personality in the entertainment industry, Louis was worked as a journalist for such magazines as Metro Silicon Valley and Spy magazine. Furthermore, he has also written for several other magazines such as Idler and Hip-Hop Connections. These were a steady start to his net worth.

Louis’ career as a filmmaker officially began in 1998, with his first TV documentary series “Louis Theroux – Weird Weekends”, which was aired for three full seasons on BBC Two, increasing his net worth to a large degree. In these documentaries, Louis covered a number of taboo topics, including sexuality and racism, by interviewing numerous personalities, including Khalid Abdul Muhammad and Eugène Terre’Blanche. Furthermore, he has also explored the world of Gangsta rappers, interviewing the rap star Master P.

In 2000, Louis increased his net worth with another string of documentaries with the TV series “When Louis Met…”, following British celebrities through their daily lives. During these shows, Lou made episodes about some famous British people such as Jimmy Saville, Neil Hamilton and his wife Christine, and Simon Cowell among others. He also completed “Louis And The Nazis” (2003) during this period.

In 2006, Lou renewed his contract with BBC and in the next years he filmed numerous documentaries on different topics such as drugs, nationalism, and religion. Some of the documentaries include “The Ultra Zionists” (2011), “My Scientology Movie” (2015) and “The Most Hated Family In America” (2007), which added a substantial amount to his overall net worth.

Over the course of his career, Louis has been rewarded with numerous prestigious accolades, including Richard Dimbleby Award for the Best Presenter in 2002, by BAFTA Awards, for his documentary TV series “When Louis Met…”, and also for his “Louis Theroux`s Weird Weekends” documentaries. Furthermore, he received the Best Presenter award by the RTS Television for his documentary “Louis Theroux: A Place For Paedophiles”.

#Quote
1[in 2012] So the rumours seem to have been in some degree validated. I haven't seen ITVs expose on Jimmy Savile yet, but from what I understand there are a number of credible accounts from under-aged teenaged girls of Jimmy abusing his position of trust and celebrity to procure sexual favours. I can't say that I'm completely blindsided by these revelations. Still, it's shocking and upsetting to have one's worst fears confirmed. What is especially disturbing is the nature of the alleged abuse - that it apparently took place repeatedly, in the workplace and at a school he was visiting. My thoughts are with the victims. I hope they find peace.
2I'm not that comfortable doing polemic or being strident. It's not me. I think what I'm good at is getting to know people, and trying to build a relationship over a few weeks and trying to get to the truth.
3As a student of bizarre organizations and eccentric people, the BBC feels like my natural home.
#Fact
1Went to the very prestigious public school Westminster School and was friends with Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish and future Liberal Democrats leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. Several years below Clegg, Louis had the job of waking him up in the morning with a newspaper (part of an old public school tradition often called 'fagging' where younger pupils act as servants to older ones).
2Married his first wife to help her get a US work permit. Although a long-term couple, they never considered it a real marriage and Louis kept it private, only referring to her as his girlfriend in public.
3Lives in Harlesden, London with his wife Nancy and young sons Albert and Frederick.
4Holds dual UK and US citizenship.
5His French last name originates from the region around Sarthe and Yonne in France. It is quite common in Francophone countries and is originally spelled Théroux. His American-born father is of half French-Canadian and half Italian descent. His mother is English.
6Is often mistaken for a Frenchman by people only reading his name (since both his first and last name are French) and as solely British by people listening to him talk.
7Has a brother, Marcel Theroux, who is two years older than Louis and was born in Uganda. Marcel is a writer and journalist.
8Cousin of Justin Theroux.
9Son of Paul Theroux
