Teresa Palmer Net Worth $1.5 Million

Born in Adelaide, South Australia, Palmer is the daughter of Kevin Palmer, who worked as an investor, and Paula Sanders, who is missionary. Her parents divorced when she was only three, and she lived with her mother in public housing, while her father remarried. During her younger years, Palmer studied at Mercedes College, a private Catholic school in Adelaide. Later, she also took acting classes while working as a service crew at fast food outlet Hungry Jacks, and also at clothing stores such as Cotton On and Supre.

Palmer’s career in movies started right after high school, when her agent called her saying that she had been cast in the movie “2:37”. She was supposed to pursue a degree in teaching, but decided to forego university and focus on the movie. In the film, she played the role of Melody, a girl who is impregnated by her own brother, and became suicidal. Her performance in the film garnered a nomination in the Australian Film Institute Award for Best Lead Actress, and the success of the film at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival in 2006 opened the doors of opportunity in her career, as well as being the basis of her net worth.

After the success of “2:37”, Palmer starred in other Australian movies including “Restraint” and “December Boys”, and appeared in a minor role in “Wolf Creek” She later made her debut in Hollywood when she became part of the horror movie “The Grudge 2”. Despite the movie receiving negative reviews, it became the start of her career in Hollywood.

Other prominent films that Palmer made in Hollywood also included “Bedtime Stories”, “I Am Number Four”, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, “Love and Honor”, “Take Me Home Tonight”, “Cut Banks”, Kill Me Three Times”, “Knight of Cups” and “Warm Bodies”. Her movies might not all be successes, but they all helped her career and rising net worth.

Aside from acting, Palmer is also partnered with various brands to be their ambassador. Some of the companies she has worked with include Just Jeans and Artistry cosmetics.

Today, Palmer is still active in acting, with her most recent films including “Lights Out”, “Point Break”, “Message from the King” and “Hacksaw Ridge”.

In terms of her personal life, Palmer has been married to actor and director Mark Webber since 2013, and together they have two children, Bodhu Rain and Forest Sage. The two also worked together in the movie “The Ever After”, in which she starred and wrote the film, while Webber directed it. Her future appears very bright.

1I always thought I wouldn't want to be pregnant at my wedding. But I love it. It's beautiful to know our baby was there with us. And I've never really been that traditional.
2[on Mel Gibson] He is really a special person. He is such a huge talent, he is a genius, an eccentric genius who knows exactly what he wants and what his vision is. I'm so inspired working with him because he is definitely getting the best out of everyone, and that is exciting.
3Adelaide, it's now called Radelaide, because it's so 'Rad'!
4There seems to be a real movement towards gender equality in our industry. It's about time, it's really exciting and it's very much needed. I have noticed it personally. I have a child, many moons back that could hinder your career and now I feel like it has just added to my career. I have never worked so much since I have had my son. They just embrace the fact that I am a mother now and they just write it into all of my roles, it's really just an amazing climate right now. (December 2015)
5[on filming Hacksaw Ridge (2016) and Berlin Syndrome (2017) at the same time] They are different characters. And I feel like that is easier. I'm glad they're not too similar. I play a woman, taken captive dealing with Stockholm syndrome in Cate Shortlands movie. It's a dark sexual role and then I go into this very innocent character, who is just falling in love with her man in Hacksaw. They are opposite experiences but equally wonderful.
6[on Kristen Stewart] I have been recognized as her on the street, and I've just gone ahead and signed her name. I've been like "You know what, whatever, I'm just gonna sign her name", because the person was so crazy excited and so I decided to just go along with it. I've only done it once [though]. Usually I'll be like, "Oh, I'm sorry to disappoint you! You actually wouldn't know who I am", but whatever, I can totally pretend to be her!
7[on collaborating with Terrence Malick] It really just changed the way I saw film. I could understand there are boundless possibilities in this world.
8[on the differences between working in the US and Australia] It's almost more competitive in Australia because there are far fewer projects and many, many, many talented actors all vying for these rolls. We maybe only make 10 movies a year--and five of them are decent. It's quite sad, so when we run out of roles in Australia, we flock over [to] the United States, but luckily for us Aussies we've had amazing Aussie actors come before and sort of pave the way, like Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman.
9[on fellow Australian Nicole Kidman] She was just lovely, and really endearing, and offered me some words of wisdom. She told me to be picky. She was like, "Oh, you do one big film. Don't get too carried away. Take your time. Be selective with the roles that you take." And she said, "Your career's defined by the things you say no to." Which is really interesting, and I'm really trying to do that at the moment.
10[on why she turned down her original plans of becoming a journalist] I always wanted to be a TV presenter. There's a show back home called "Getaway", which is all these beautiful girls, and they go to all these incredible places around the world, and they report from these places. They get to go on holidays, and also get to be a TV presenter. So I thought it looked like glamorous work, and I started studying journalism to try to get into that area. But it was maybe three or four months into the journalism that I got a call--this director said, "I want you to be in my movie". It kind of went from there. I've been in whirlwind ever since, and I never got to doing journalism.
11[on I Am Number Four (2011) not getting a sequel] It was really disappointing because I poured my heart into that character and I was so excited by the sequel--"The Power Of Six"--in which I had so much more to do.
12[on returning to the Australian film industry for the first time in six years] I've carved my path in America doing these big movies and I was switching it up by moving between genres. But I was missing that sense of collaboration you get on these smaller, local movies.
13[on not starring in Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)] I have made my peace with letting that opportunity go. The character I was to play in "Fury Road" is very similar to Six (I Am Number Four (2011)) in a way, so I feel like I have played her before.
14[on working with Terrence Malick] It was definitely guerrilla-style filmmaking and I don't know if I can touch having that experience ever again. And by the way, I don't even know if I am going to make the final film, but being around Malick was absolutely enough for me.
15You never know when the next up-and-comers will be in the spotlight so people forget you. There's no guarantees.
16I was earning like $100 a week a year ago, so this is money I never expected to earn! But I am trying not to listen to the hype or listen to my own media because you can't go through it like that.
