Anthony Anderson Went From Slapstick Comedian To Hollywood Bedrock — And Amassed A $25M Net Worth

Anthony Anderson has just finished filming the final season of the hit show “black-ish,” and he said that the ending was nothing if not bittersweet.

But while he had the most amazing chemistry with his co-star, Tracee Ellis Ross, there was a time when they weren’t always the best of friends.

“I hated him,” she said to Entertainment Weekly. “[He] made a fart joke at my expense on stage! I was like, ‘Not appropriate! I don’t know you that well! What are you thinking?’ And I held this resentment forever… And now, look — I love this man! This man is like the best TV husband ever.”

But all’s well that ends well for one of our favorite TV couples, so all we can do is wonder what’s next for Anthony Anderson. He’s serving as a spokesman for many popular brands, including AT&T, so the chances are pretty good that we’ll be seeing him again in the near future. But how well does he get paid for all these films, television shows, and endorsements?

We’ve got the answers to all your burning questions about Anthony Anderson. From his net worth to his marital status, everything you could ever want to know about the comedian-turned-Hollywood bedrock is right here at your fingertips. Let’s take a look!

Anthony Anderson lives in Los Angeles, CA, in a home he reportedly paid $1.1 million for. But his big indulgence was a $200,000 Maybach.

“I could say I didn’t win an Emmy this year, so I got a Maybach. I’m not going to lie to you: I’d rather have an Emmy. There have been only nine African-American actors nominated for lead actor in a comedy series, and I happen to be one of them,” he said to The Hollywood Reporter.

Anthony Anderson: Bio

Anthony Anderson was born in Compton, CA, and was raised by his mother and stepfather. A graduate of the Hollywood High School Performing Arts Magnet’s Class of 1988, Anderson plans on graduating from Howard University in 2022.

He admits that his first attempts at stand-up comedy failed miserably, but he kept going, and soon, he was cast in slapstick comedy movies like “Daddy Day Care” and “Kangaroo Jack.”

But his true breakthrough came in 2004, with his role in the Oscar-winning film “Hustle and Flow,” opposite Terrence Howard. Since then, he’s been doing everything from providing the voice of Stanley in “Doc McStuffins” to being a spokesman for AT&T.

Who Is Anthony Anderson Married To?

In 1999, Anderson married Alvina Stewart, who is a fitness fanatic, wife, and mother. Unlike her famous husband, Stewart stays out of the public eye. Her Instagram is set to private, and she occasionally shows up on Anderson’s Instagram page.

Does Anthony Anderson Have Any Kids?

Anthony Anderson has two children: a daughter named Kyra and a son named Nathan.

Nathan starred as Tahj in the Netflix sitcom “Richie Rich.”

But despite his wealth, Anderson said that no matter how much he loved his children, he couldn’t see himself “spoiling” them.

“I wanted to give [my children] everything I didn’t have. But I can’t spoil my kids. I had to say, ‘Wait a minute — am I creating a monster? I can’t keep freely giving you things.’ My kids have schoolwork, community service, and chores. We recently put together packages at the post office for soldiers overseas,” he said in an exclusive interview with Yahoo.
