Joel Coen net worth — Joel Coen was born in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, and has written, directed and produced several Academy Award-winning movies with his brother, Ethan. Growing up, Joel mowed lawns to obtain a camera so he and his brother could remake films with their friends. He and Ethan graduated from Bard College at Simon’s Rock, and Joel would attend New York University’s film program while Ethan headed to Princeton. Joel worked as a production assistant until he and his brother wrote their first film “Blood Simple” in 1984. They followed up that effort with “Crimewave” in 1985, “Raising Arizona” in 1987 and “Miller’s Crossing” in 1991. The Coen brothers won their first Academy Award for his or her film “Fargo” in 1996, taking home Best Original Screenplay. They are also credited with names including “The Big Lebowski”, “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”, “Intolerable Cruelty”, and the Oscar winner “No County for Old Men”. Joel married actress Frances McDormand in 1984, and they adopted their son, Pedro, from Paraguay. They live in Ny.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Both he and his brother Ethan are huge fans of Stanley Kubrick.
2As of 2014, he and Ethan Coen wrote four films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: Fargo (1996), No Country for Old Men (2007), A Serious Man (2009) and True Grit (2010). Of those, only No Country for Old Men (2007) is a winner in the category.
3The Coen Brothers are noted for their unusual writing process of not only eschewing outlines, but of not even concerning themselves what their story is about or who their characters are before beginning to write their screenplays. They will simply begin writing any scene they think up that they find to be interesting. Then, if they think of an interesting idea for a following scene, they will write that one, and then another, and so on and so forth until they have a first draft, discovering what the story is along the way. Then, they will heavily revise what they have until they feel they have a shootable screenplay. They have noted that because of this, they will often get writer's block around the mid-point of any given screenplay, and will begin another screenplay in the meantime in order to remain productive. For example, the entirety of Barton Fink (1991) was written while they were battling writer's block with Miller's Crossing (1990), and the first 40 pages of The Big Lebowski (1998) were written while they were stuck with Barton Fink (1991).
4In the late 60s, Coen, along with younger brother Ethan, shot their own Super 8 version of "Advise and Consent.".
5Has won the Cannes prize for Best Director three times, more than any other filmmaker. He won in 1991 for Barton Fink, 1996 for Fargo and 2001 for The Man Who Wasn't There.
6When asked what films most influenced him and his brother early on, Joel mentioned Hollywood comedies from the late 50s and early 60s usually critically considered lightweight and inferior, including Boeing, Boeing (1965), A Global Affair (1964), That Touch of Mink (1962) and Pillow Talk (1959). He also claimed that The Guns of Navarone (1961) is his favorite film.
7Roderick Jaynes, who is credited with editing all of his films, does not, in fact, exist. The name is a pseudonym for Joel and his brother Ethan.
8His mother, Rena Neumann Coen, died of kidney disease in 2001.
9Has a younger sister named Deborah, who is a psychiatrist.
10As of 2009, he is the only person to have ever directed his wife to a Best Actress Oscar (Frances McDormand in Fargo (1996)).
11The first Coen brothers film where both he and brother Ethan Coen are given directing and producing credits was The Ladykillers (2004). They have shared these duties on all of their films, but Joel has always been listed as director and Ethan as producer.
12Directed 6 different actors in Oscar-nominated performances: Michael Lerner, Frances McDormand, William H. Macy, Javier Bardem, Jeff Bridges, and Hailee Steinfeld. McDormand and Bardem won Oscars for their performances in one of his movies.
13Only three times in Academy Award history have director-collaborators been nominated for Best Directing Oscars: Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins for West Side Story (1961), Warren Beatty and Buck Henry for Heaven Can Wait (1978) and Joel Coen and Ethan Coen for No Country for Old Men (2007). (Wise/Robbins and the Coens actually won the award).
14He (along with his brother Ethan Coen) is part of the prestigious group of individuals to have won Oscars for writing, directing and producing in the same year, for the film No Country for Old Men (2007)'. The others are Peter Jackson for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), James L. Brooks for Terms of Endearment (1983), Francis Ford Coppola for The Godfather: Part II (1974) and Billy Wilder for The Apartment (1960), and 'Alejandro González Iñárritu' for _Birdman (2014)_. James Cameron also won three Oscars for Titanic (1997) but they were for directing, producing and editing.
15Born to Edward Coen, an economist at the University of Minnesota, and his wife Rena, an art historian at St. Cloud State University.
16In his childhood, he saved money from mowing lawns to buy a Super-8 camera.
17As his brother, he graduated from Simon's Rock Early College in Great Barrington, MA. He later attended New York University's undergraduate film program to finally graduate after four years there.
18Resides in New York City with his family.
19When an actor improvises a line on the set, he will almost invariably say something like, "That was great, but could you do it like it's written in the script?" Most Coen brothers films are the same (line for line) when released as they are on the page in the final draft of the script.
20Often has a scene that takes place in dark areas with a sense of dark humor. In The Big Lebowski (1998), The Dude talks to Jeffery Lebowski in a dark room with fire; In O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000), The Devil's henchmen capture Pete with thunder in the background; In Intolerable Cruelty (2003), Miles meets with Myerson in the dark room with only a glare of light showing Myerson's face; In Fargo (1996), Shep starts beating up Carl in a dim-lighted room.
21Frequently includes kidnapping-plots in his films.
22Brother-in-law of Tricia Cooke.
23Ranked #88 in Premiere's 2003 annual Power 100 List with brother Ethan Coen. They had been ranked #92 in 2002.
24He and brother Ethan Coen have had final cut on all of their films since Blood Simple. (1984), their debut film.
25Alumnus of Simon's Rock College, Great Barrington, Massachusetts, along with brother Ethan Coen. This is a fully-accredited college for students who typically enter at the age of 16 - before graduating high school.
26Works so closely with his brother Ethan Coen that the two of them have been jokingly referred to as "The Two-Headed Director".
27Used to receive sole credit as director for the Coen brothers movies', but has always directed films with his brother Ethan Coen (they also write and produce their films together). This was changed with The Ladykillers (2004), and now they both receive credit for directing and producing.
28He and his wife adopted a baby boy from Paraguay in 1994 and named him Pedro McDormand Coen.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on his and his brother Ethan's choice of characters in their films] What's interesting to us are the people you know that are very good at what they do but aren't necessarily successful.
2Someone asked us once how we adapt novels, and Ethan [Coen] said, "Joel holds the book open by the spine, while I retype it into the computer...Don't change it [the book] if it's not broken!
3I like Hollywood just the way it is, actually. I don't think I'd change anything. I like that it's out here 3,000 miles from where I live.
4My most important professional accomplishment? I think that it's that I'm so scintillating and engaging in an interview.
5There's no doubt that our Jewish heritage affects how we see things.
6[upon winning the Oscar for Best Director for No Country for Old Men (2007)] In the late '60s, when [brother Ethan Coen] was 11 or 12, he got a suit and a briefcase and we went to the Minneapolis International Airport with a Super 8 camera and made a movie about shuttle diplomacy called "Henry Kissinger, Man on the Go". And, honestly, what we do now doesn't feel much different from what we were doing then.
7[Ethan Coen] once described the way we worked together as: one of us types into the computer while the other holds the spine of the book open flat. That's why there needs to be two of us - otherwise he's gotta type one-handed. That's how you "collaborate" with someone else.
8[Ethan Coen] had a nightmare of one day finding me on the set of something like The Incredible Hulk (2008), wearing a gold chain and saying, "I've got to eat, don't I?"
9The bigger stars we've worked with have been without the movie-star vanities or meshugaas that you read about and dread. [George Clooney], for example, was the opposite. He has no entourage. He's a big movie star, but a nice guy.
10We've never considered our stuff either homage or spoof. Those are things other people call it, and it's always puzzled me that they do.
11I hate when people cry in movies. It's particularly disconcerting when you're sitting at a really awful movie and you hear people all around you sobbing and blowing their noses.
12[on filmmaking] I can almost set my watch by how I'm going to feel at different stages of the process. It's always identical, whether the movie ends up working or not. I think when you watch the dailies, the film that you shoot every day, you're very excited by it and very optimistic about how it's going to work. And when you see it the first time you put the film together, the roughest cut, is when you want to go home and open up your veins and get in a warm tub and just go away. And then it gradually, maybe, works its way back, somewhere toward that spot you were at before.
13It's a funny thing; people sometimes accuse us of condescending to our characters somehow -- that to me is kind of inexplicable.
14Frequently we are writing characters and we are thinking, "Wouldn't it be interesting to see such and such play this kind of a person?", and the character starts to grow out of that as you are writing it. It's a combination of things that you are making up and what you know about the actor.
