The Wealth of Jess Bradford
How rich is Jesse Bradford? As of late-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $3 million, earned through a successful career in acting. He’s also been involved in numerous television projects over the course of his career, and as he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Jesse is the only child of actors Curtis Watrouse and Terry Porter, who mainly worked on commercials as well as soap operas; his cousin is writer and poet Sarah Messer. At a very young age, he was already exposed to the world of acting, appearing in a Q-Tip commercial when he was just eight years old.
He was strongly encouraged by his parents to try his hand at a modelling and acting career. This led him to his first appearance, as the son of Robert De Niro in the film “Falling In Love”. He attended Brien McMahon High School and during his time there, he described himself as a geology nerd. He was voted as Homecoming King and was captain of the school’s tennis team. He was also voted favorite actor and best looking despite not being a part of the school’s drama club. After matriculating, he then enrolled into Columbia University where he studied for a degree in film, graduating in 2002.
While studying, Bradford already had numerous acting roles beginning in the 1990s, with well-reviewed films including “Presumed Innocent”, starring Harrison Ford and based on the novel of the same name by Scott Turow. Throughout the decade he was given more projects, including the drama film “King of the Hill” directed by Steven Soderbergh, which was nominated for the Palme d’Or during the 1993 Cannes Film Festival. Another notable project was “Far From Home: The Adventures of Yellow Dog”, an adventure film and known to be the last film of director Phillip Borsos.
As the years passed, Bradford transitioned to more adult roles beginning with “Romeo + Juliet” in 1996, which is a romantic crime film and a modernization of the William Shakespeare tragedy of the same name, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. He was then cast as the love interest of Kirsten Dunst in the film “Bring it On”, which is the first of five “Bring It On” films, however, all of the latter films were straight to video sequels, which they didn’t star in. He moved on to other projects in the 2000s.

In 2002, Jesse had the lead role in two films – “Swimfan” which is a psychological thriller film starring him alongside Erika Christensen, and the science action film “Clockstoppers” which also starred Paula Garces and French Stewart, produced by Nickelodeon and distributed by Paramount Pictures. During the fifth season of the show “The West Wing”, he had a minor role as White House intern Ryan Pierce, playing the character for a total of nine episodes. His next major project would be in 2006’s “Flags of Our Fathers”, playing the character Rene Gagnon in the film based on the book of the same name written by James Bradley, which revolves around the story of the Battle of Iwo Jima and was directed by Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood.
In 2009, Jesse was then cast in the film “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell”, which is also based on a best-selling book, by Tucker Max. A few of his latest projects include the courtroom series “Outlaw” of which he was a cast member, and appearances in a few episodes of “Code Black”.
Aside from acting work, he is an investor in the nightclub called The Plumm, which is located in Manhattan.
For his personal life, it is known that Bradford married country singer Julie Roberts in 2005, and they have two sons, but finally divorced in 2017. He’s also been linked romantically to numerous high-profile names, including actress Diane Gaeta Marshall and Priscilla Valles. He also briefly dated Elisha Cuthbert after the duo starred in the film “My Sassy Girl”. In 2014, he was reported to be in a relationship with glamour model Nikki Leigh but it eventually ended. The following year, he confirmed that he was in a relationship with rapper Azealia Banks, who is also a singer, actress, and songwriter.

|1||[on Clint Eastwood's directorial efficiency] I heard rumors that he really does two takes, but I had a friend who was going into a Clint Eastwood movie, I wouldn't say he does two takes - I would say he does one. The average is probably two, but the number of times we only did one was overwhelming. It's kind of cool because, as an actor, it forces you to be on your game. With this movie, I learned really quickly to be very clear on what I thought were the most important aspects of the scene and how I wanted those aspects to come off, and then practice how I was going to make sure they did, because if I only got one shot, I didn't want to be the guy who was always asking for another take. I didn't want to waste my bullets in that department.|
