It has already been reported by sources that the overall sum of Cera’s net worth is $20 million, the most lucrative film Michael has worked on being “Magic, Magic” (2013), earning $1,666,667 from his acting and being the executive producer.

Michael Cera was determined to pursue the career of an actor from early childhood. Cera attended school until he reached the ninth grade and then finished study through correspondence. His career began with an unpaid role in a commercial, yet it opened doors to his future career. From 1999 to 2001, Cera was part of the cast of the television show “I Was a Sixth Grade Alien”. As long as it was permanent role, it made a positive impact on actor’s net worth.

Meanwhile, Michael landed his first role in a feature film – “Switching Goals” (1999) directed by David Steinberg. Afterwards, he appeared in various films playing supporting roles as well as episodically appearing in many television series, also over-voicing some, and acquiring experience, popularity and increasing his wealth. However, in 2005 the actor’s career gathered pace after winning the Best Actor’s award at the San Gio Festival in Italy for his role in the short film “Darling, Darling”.

His characters are usually praised by both critics and cinema goers. Currently, he is working on the upcoming films “Entertainment” and “Sausage Party” both, it is believed, will increase his net worth.

1Curly light brown hair
2Wide expressive eyes
3Often plays soft-spoken, sensitive characters
4Often plays naive and/or slightly nerdy characters
1One of the great things about being involved in this business is that you meet people who are so talented, whose stuff you admire, who you can potentially work with.
2[re confusion with Jesse Eisenberg] I get it a lot. People will tell me they loved me in The Social Network (2010), and I will tell them I'm not Jesse. I was in a convenience store one time buying something, and the guy just ahead of me was paying for something and he looked at me and he goes, 'Jesse Eisenberg?' I went, 'No.' Then he goes, 'Michael Cera?' I was pretty impressed he got it on the second try.
3[re social life in Hollywood, and move to NYC] I'm not plugged into that world. It's a really good city to be a homebody and sit and watch movies with friends. It takes a lot of work to be plugged in to people. Every day you wake up it's a new challenge, like: 'What am I going to do with myself today?'...In New York, if you walk outside you are involved. Everyone feels that, and everyone is feeding off that. I saw New York in Ghostbusters (1984) when I was 4 years old and decided I would end up living there.
4[re his character in Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus and 2012 (2013)] Even the nicest people in the world know what it's like to be selfish, even if they don't act on it. Everyone has access to those impulses. He's both fixated and miserable. He's a person who is so uncomfortable with himself that he can't be in the present moment for even a second.
5I like a woman to take control but they're hard to find. For example, when I go out to a restaurant I know every girl in there wants to come say hi and be sexually aggressive, but they're all so gripped by shyness that they don't even make a move. In some cases the shyness is so severe they won't even look at me.
6I'm not really trying to make 'great art.'
1Moving from Los Angeles, CA, USA to Brooklyn, NY, USA. [July 2013]
2Santiago, Chile: Filming Magic Magic (2013). [July 2011]
3Lives in ultra trendy Los Angeles neighborhood, Los Feliz. Giovanni Ribisi, Bo Barrett, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pine, Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo, Kristen Stuart, Brad Pitt, Hannah Telle and Robert Pattinson are among the other actors who also call Los Feliz home.
4Says that he is often mistaken for Jesse Eisenberg.
5Member of The Interstate 5 Tennis Association.
6Last name is pronounced "SEH-ra".
7His last name means "wax" in Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.
8Was ranked #1 on Entertainment Weekly's '30 Under 30' the actors list (2008).
9Plays guitar in his free time and, according to Ellen Page, his Juno (2007) co-star, he's "very good at it".
10Auditioned for the role of Cole Sear in The Sixth Sense (1999), which went to Haley Joel Osment.
11His mother, Linda, comes from Montreal, Quebec, and has English, Irish, Scottish, and Dutch ancestry, and his father, Luigi Cera, is from Sicily.
