Who is Matthew Gray Gubler?

Born under the sign of Pisces on the 9th of March 1980 in Las Vegas, Nevada USA, Matthew Gray Gubler is a 38-year-old Caucasian actor, voice actor, filmmaker, painter and fashion model of Swiss, German, English, Irish, Manx, Scottish and Dutch descent. He is perhaps best known to the world for his significant presence on the TV screen as criminal profiler Dr. Spencer Reid in the CBS-produced crime TV show entitled “Criminal Minds.” He has also had a number of roles across various films and TV shows over the course of his often lucrative career since 2004.

Early Life: Growing up in Las Vegas

Matthew was raised in his birthplace by his attorney father John Gubler, and his rancher and political consultant mother named Marilyn Gubler (nee Kelch), while his maternal grandparents are Laura Belle and Maxwell Kelch, who founded the first Las Vegas’ radio station, named “KENO.” To our knowledge thus far, Matthew has a sister named Laura, although her age is still a mystery. He started showing an interest in acting at an early age, which led him to enroll at the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies, Visual and Performing Arts, from where he matriculated with a major in acting instead of filmmaking because the school didn’t offer that choice, in 1998. Later on, he furthered his education by attending New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, from where he graduated with a major in film directing.

Career: From a Model to a Movie Star

Matthew’s modeling career started while he was still in high school, after being discovered by a model scout, who introduced him to the DNA Model Management agency, where he worked as a model for famous brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, American Eagle and Marc Jacobs, becoming ranked 46th on the models.com list of top 50 male models.

His modeling career eventually allowed him to meet the famous director Wes Anderson, with whom he took up an internship, and who eventually persuaded him to try his skills out in the film “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou” in 2004, which marked his movie debut. The next year he landed the role that skyrocketed him into stardom, as Dr. Spencer Reid in the TV series by Jeff Davis entitled “Criminal Minds.” He is still in the show, with a total of 298 credited episodes thus far, also  having directed a few. In 2007, he lent his voice to Simon from “Alvin and the Chipmunks,” and concurrently has had over 20 other parts and guest appearances. His latest role is in a single film that came out in 2018 called “Zoe.”

Love Life: A Mystery

As for his early relationships, it is known that Matthew began dating his first known girlfriend Eve Wind when he was very young, though they broke up in 2004. He started another relationship in the same year, this time with the model Charlotte Kemp Muhl, however, they separated in 2005. In 2007 he dated Kat Dennings, then in 2008 he began dating the Portuguese actress Marisa Morris – they broke up in 2010. He is also known to have dated Victoria Asher, Ali Michael and Rachel Bourlier, though the dates of these relationships are unknown. He dated Taylor Swift in 2013, but that ended quickly as well. He has never had any children and he has never been engaged. According to his words or the lack thereof, he is currently single and not interested in anyone.

His Quotes

Matthew is known for retaining modesty throughout his interviews. Specifically, he said: ‘I’ve had this unbelievable amount of good fortune and I’m just so thankful for it. But at the same time I feel exceptionally guilty. I have so many friends who are talented graduates of Juilliard and are exceptional actors and I’m the lucky one that somehow got such a fortunate break.’ That said, he claims that, as a filmmaker, he learned the most from Walt Disney himself, having said: ‘I really cite Walt Disney as teaching me everything I know. It sounds crazy, but I’m serious! In ‘Bambi,’ the mother dies, but you don’t see the corpse. You see the father, the stag, come up and you see ‘Bambi’ alone, and that has so much more impact than seeing a mutilated deer.’

What is Matthew Gray Gubler’s Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how rich Matthew Gray Gubler is, as of mid-2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Matthew’s accumulated wealth is close to $1.5 million, from being a model and actor, while he earned the most from his long-term presence in the entertainment industry as Dr. Spencer Reid in “Criminal Minds.” As his career continues to develop, the said amount can be expected to increase.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on Shemar Moore] My six pack is better then Shemar's. Tell Shemar I said my six pack is a little better than his. It's a seven pack.
2[on his character Dr. Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds (2005)] He's kinda like Doogie Howser, if he had a gun.
3I studied directing prior to acting and I've done music videos and documentaries and things that were sort of well-received.
4Tisch has a great film program and a great acting program, but they are segregated; you don't really intertwine. My peers knew I liked acting, so they'd be like, 'Go get that guy Gubler. He'll be in your student film.' I was in the same building. I became their go-to guy. So I left NYU having been in probably one thousand short films.
5My parents instilled a very strong work ethic in me from a young age, fortunately.
6My best advice to actors is if you love acting, do it every chance you get. Success does not mean success. All that matters is whether or not you're doing your best to entertain. The way this business works is all about luck and timing.
7A fantastic actor in a scene that's just closed off will be good. But when working with a director who knows little tricks - correct music, slowly pushing in - that stunning performance will somehow become even better. I've always seen it as a symbiotic relationship.
8I've always been a fan of Andy Kaufman.
9I've had this unbelievable amount of good fortune and I'm just so thankful for it. But at the same time I feel exceptionally guilty. I have so many friends who are talented graduates of Juilliard and are exceptional actors and I'm the lucky one that somehow got such a fortunate break.
10I look a little like Beaker. I think I'm a cross between Beaker and The Count. My hair looks like Oscar the Grouch. It's Muppety hair.
11I looked like a 'Super Mario Bros.' Goomba. It's arguably the ugliest haircut on the planet.
12What I like most about directing is creating a world more so than anything. To me, the music is the wrapping paper on that world.
13I think I veered towards filmmaking because there's more of a sense of control in it. You're not waiting to be picked. That said, in film school I acted in probably 6,000 student films because no other filmmakers knew anyone who wanted to act. It was all a big beautiful snake eating its tail, progressing along the way.
14I would love to be on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' I'd love to be on that. A lot of my favorite shows get canceled really early on. I liked 'Twin Peaks.' If I had a time machine I'd be in that.
15It'd be cool to chipmunk-ize 'The Virgin Suicides' soundtrack. All this ethereal French music, I think that would be unique to listen to.
16I never imagined I would have one fan, and there seems to be a few. I just couldn't be happier that people seem to like what I'm doing and seem to respond to it. If they weren't there, I don't know what I'd be doing right now.
17I never thought I'd be making a living off of acting - it's still kind of a shock for my family and friends to see my face on TV every Wednesday night.
18I've always had the utmost respect and awe of what the lens can do and what a director can do with just a camera move.
19I get really sad when people say, 'I'm no good. I haven't been cast in a pilot.' It doesn't mean you're not good; it just means someone hasn't seen you yet. It doesn't mean that in real life you're not the greatest actor.
20I found out that smoking is the leading cause of statistics.
21I really cite Walt Disney as teaching me everything I know. It sounds crazy, but I'm serious! In 'Bambi,' the mother dies, but you don't see the corpse. You see the father, the stag, come up and you see 'Bambi' alone, and that has so much more impact than seeing a mutilated deer.
22I get very little sleep. But I try to stay constantly busy. My fear is that if I stop working I'll, like, die. So throughout my life I've always tried to remain busy, and I sort of know no other way. I think if my heart rate slowed it would affect my constitution, strangely. I've been trained to do that.
23I just love entertaining. I will do anything - stand-up comedy, video games, fencing, internet shorts - I just want to keep being lucky enough to entertain people anyway I can. I try never to limit my art to a medium.
