What is Donald Sutherland’s net worth?

Donald Sutherland’s net worth is estimated to be $60 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. He was considered one of the wealthiest Canadian actors. Unsurprisingly, most of this income comes from his tenured career as a successful actor.

Donald was born to parents Dorothy and Frederick on July 17, 1935, in Saint John, New Brunswick. His early childhood was marked by poor health, as Donald suffered from early-onset polio, hepatitis, and rheumatic fever.

The prolific actor beat the odds against him and pushed toward his acting dreams. He studied at the University of Toronto and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

In an interview with GQ, he revealed that his first film role was in 1962. His career took off from there, resulting in decades of acting roles. This work was recognized by his country. On Dec. 18, 1978, the Governor General of Canada awarded him the OC (Officer of the Order of Canada).

“With a heavy heart, I tell you that my father, Donald Sutherland, has passed away,” he began. “I personally think one of the most important actors in the history of film. Never daunted by a role, good, bad or ugly. He loved what he did and did what he loved, and one can never ask for more than that.” He closed his statement by calling his father’s life and legacy, “A life well lived.”

Speaking of a well-lived life, Donald’s acting career afforded him many luxuries. While his real estate portfolio isn’t fully known, one of his former properties was put on the market in January 2024. This was the Santa Monica beach house he designed in 1930 and lived in for 30 years. It was put on the market for $3,676,000.

According to an interview with The Guardian, Donald owned homes in LA, Canada, New York, and Paris. “I have mortgages up to my armpit, though,” he said.
