The Net Worth of Sam Greisman
How rich is Sam Greisman? As of early 2020, sources estimate a net worth that is over $500,000, earned through success in his various endeavors. His wealth could be elevated significantly thanks to his mother, who has a net worth estimated to be over $55 million.
As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his personal wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Career
Despite the prestige of her mother, most of Samuel’s life has remained away from the spotlight, as her mother wanted him to have a life outside of any media attention. Not many details have been shared about his childhood, and there is no information regarding his education. It is known that he pursued a career in the entertainment industry during his mid-20s, but didn’t pursue it in the same fashion as his mother.
Instead, he went the directing and producing path, beginning with the creation of the short film entitled “River Rats” released in 2014. A year later, he worked on the film project entitled “After School”, which follows the story of a 15 year-old teenager discovering that he has feelings for his best friend. In 2016, he released another project entitled “Dinner with Jeffrey”, about a 19 year old teenager coming out of the closet, and his struggles to fit in with other gay people.
Mother – Sally Field
Greisman’s mother Sally Field works as an actress and director, with her work in the latter probably becoming the inspiration for her son to pursue similar projects.
She’s won numerous accolades over the course of her career, including two Oscars, three Primetime Emmys, two Golden Globe, and a Screen Actors Guild Award. Her career began on television in the early ‘60s, appearing in several series such as “Gidget”, “The Flying Nun”, and “The Girl with Something Extra”. Her breakthrough came when she was cast as the titular character in the miniseries “Sybil” broadcast on NBC, which won her an Emmy Award, and is based on the book of the same name by Flora Rheta Schreiber.
Her film career also blossomed in the 1970s, as she became the star of numerous successful films including “Stay Hungry”, “Heroes’, “The End”, and “Hooper”. In 1979, she earned her first Academy Award for her performance in “Norma Rae”, based on the true story of Crystal Lee Sutton as told in the book “Crystal Lee, a Woman of Inheritance”. She followed it up with another Academy Award winning performance in “Places of the Heart”, which follows the story of a widower who tries to save his family farm during the US Depression-era.

Latter Projects of Sally Field
The acclaimed and commercially successful films continued to come Field’s way. Some of her projects leading up to the 1990s included “Steel Magnolias”, “Absence of Malice”, and “Forrest Gump”. In the 2000s, she returned to television, cast in a recurring role in the medical drama “ER” which won her a Primetime Emmy Award. She then made her stage debut in “The Goat, or Who is Sylvia”, before in 2006 being cast in the ABC drama “Brothers & Sisters”, staying with the show for its next five years, and gaining another Emmy Award for her performance.
In the 2010s, her film career returned to form, as she gained nominations for her performances in “Lincoln” and “The Amazing Spider-Man”. In 2015, she was nominated for a Critics Choice Movie Award thanks to her work in the film “Hello, My Name is Doris”. Two years later, she returned to stage after a 15-year absence, to perform in the revival of Tennessee Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie”, earning her a nomination for a Tony Award. She has been presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, nothing of note is known in terms of Greisman’s romantic relationships. There have been no confirmed affairs, perhaps because he is gay and somewhat shy. His directing work often focuses on the topic of coming out and dealing with adjusting to a gay lifestyle. His mother also revealed his preference when she tried to set him up with Olympian Adam Rippon through the social media website Twitter in 2018; this prompted a response as the two actually met in real life during a human rights campaign held in Los Angeles.
In recent months, he has been open about posting photos alongside a man, possibly a boyfriend.
Similar to numerous children of actors, he is highly active online through accounts on social media. He has an account on Instagram which he uses to post personal photos, including recent events in his life. He also has a Twitter account on which he express his opinions on numerous topics such as politics. He also jokes about how the media always refer to him as Sally Field’s gay son – or Sally Field’s single son – instead of using his real name.
