Celebrity Rip Torn has amassed a net worth that is nearly large enough to fit his outsized display character. And this was no simple accomplishment, despite an estimated net worth of about $8 million. He did not let this prevent him from appearing in more serious, arty pictures, yet. He starred in Coming Apart, a movie largely composed of inactive “hidden camera” photos depicting a shrink’s mental break down, and The Man Who Fell to Earth, in which David Bowie plays a master and capitalistic space alien.

Rip Torn is also worked as a director, but he is most well-known for his work on television. Especially, as Artie to the creative HBO sitcom The Larry Sanders Show, who’s usually considered to rank as among the greatest TV characters ever. His gruff sensibility in addition has served him well in appearances on 30 Rock as well as in the movies Defending Your Life, Men In Black, and Robocop 3.

There's always some kind of blacklist throughout history. But the difference is, in America they usually let you live.
Everybody says, 'You impress me as a guy who never wanted to be a movie star.' I say, 'Everybody in the world wants to be a movie star.'
Anything new is always considered the devil's tool.
I've never hit anybody who hasn't clocked me two or three times.

Let the other guys do the crybaby stuff. Go for the laughs.
I've got two old Volvos, two old Subarus, and an old Ford Ranger. If you've got an old car, you've gotta have at least several old cars, 'cause one's always gonna be in the garage.
When I grew up, people said, 'You'll never be the man your dad was.' And I said, 'Gee, I hope not.'
Be your own politics, grow your own garden, and maybe you can help out more.
Don't ever humiliate a man. If you're gonna have to dress him out, you take him aside and do it that way. That's the one thing I don't like about Hollywood: They go in for public humiliation. You shouldn't do that to a man.
You can never turn your back on the ocean.
If I could just get a piece of lemon, it'd be great.
If you're lucky enough to have a pretty girl love you and share herself and sleep with you, make that your secret. The best way to spoil love is by talking to too many people about it.

Never think you're better than anyone else, but don't let anyone treat you like you're worse than they are.
[on receiving his first Oscar nomination] People are finally realizing I'm one of the few actors who has never missed a performance. I've worked with broken legs, arms, ankles. I once passed a kidney stone during the opening night of a show.
What do they say about all the guys that are tremendous actors? Don't they say they have a volatile temper and emotions? Yeah, sure they do! They're not saying they like a nice mild guy. Look at Sean Penn. [on being called volatile].
