The Net Worth of Milo Ventimiglia

How rich is Milo Ventimiglia? As of mid-2018, sources inform us of a net worth estimated at over $5 million, mostly earned through a successful career in acting. He’s also appeared in numerous films throughout his career, and as he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Education

Milo was born as the youngest child, with two older sisters, to father Peter who is a Vietnam War veteran, and mother Carol, of mixed Scottish, English and Italian (Sicilian) descent. He was born with what was called a crooked mouth as a result of damaged nerves on the left side of his mouth similar to that of Sylvester Stallone. He attended El Modena High School and during his time there, acted in drama productions.

After matriculating in 1995, he enrolled in the American Conservatory Theatre to study for their summer program, then continued his studies at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with theatre as his major. Around this time, he started pursuing acting roles too, and appeared in the short film “Must Be the Music” in the role of a gay teenager. He then landed a role in the TV series “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”, before going on to make guest appearances in numerous other television series, including “CSI:Crime Scene Investigation” and “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch”.

Gilmore Girls and Heroes

In 2002, Ventimiglia joined the cast of the series “Gilmore Girls” during its second season, in the role of brooding teen Jess Mariano, and would continue in the role for the next two seasons. A spin-off of “Gilmore Girls” called “Windward Circle” based on his character was proposed, but it never found any traction. He became a recurring member of the show before ending his run, but around this time, he also appeared in “American Dreams”, and “The Bedford Diaries’.

Concurrent with television work, he also appeared in numerous films, mostly in supporting roles, in such as “Rocky Balboa”, “Stay Alive” and “Cursed”. In 2006, he became a part of the television show “Heroes” as Peter Petrelli, which is about a group of people discovering they have superpowers, staying with the show until its conclusion in 2010. During this time, his popularity grew significantly, and he was involved in the music video “Big Girls Don’t Cry” by Fergie, and had a role in the horror film “Pathology”, which co-starred Alyssa Milano.

This Is Us and Later Work

After working on “Pathology”, Milo would then star in the thriller film “The Divide”, and also started to do voice work, as Wolverine in the English dub of “Marvel Anime: Wolverine”. He would also reprise his role in two other “Marvel Anime” series films – “Marvel Anime: Iron Man” and “Marvel Anime: Blade”. The only project he did not voice was “Marvel Anime: X-Men” as it required a different voice actor due to an older Wolverine being a part of the team. He then appeared in the short-lived series “Mob City”.

In 2016, Milo reprised his role of Jess Mariano in “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life”, then later in the year starred in a new period drama series entitled “This Is Us”, opposite Mandy Moore, playing the role of patriarch Jack Pearson in the portrayal of a middle-class family during the 1990s in the US. Thanks to his performance, he received his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Most recently, in 2017 Milo appeared in the film “Devil’s Gate” alongside Amanda Schull, and is currently involved in the shooting of two films – “Second Act”, and “The Art of Racing in the Rain”.

Personal Life

It is known that Ventimiglia has been linked to several actresses during his career. In 2002, he started a relationship with fellow “Gilmore Girls” co-star Alexis Biedel, which lasted until 2006. He was also known to have dated “Heroes” co-star Hayden Panettiere from 2007 to 2009, but he hasn’t come to notice in the last few years, and apparently remains single. According to an interview, he mentioned that he has maintained a lacto-vegetarian diet since he was a child; he also doesn’t drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. He was named in 2009 as the Sexiest Vegetarian by the people for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. He has also taken a United Service Organization tour in support of US troops in locations such as Afghanistan, Iraq, and Kuwait.

#Marks / Signs
1His self-described "crooked" mouth


1I'm sure I'll find something to do. Some kind of trouble to get into.
2I drive the thing like a granny. I've only gotten one ticket in that car, and it was for an illegal left-hand turn.
3The kid I play, Jess, moves to town. he's a troublemaker - he steals, drinks beer, smokes. He's seventeen - he shouldn't be doing any of this stuff.
4I don't seek attention. If anything I'd rather blend in, remain anonymous.
5I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't do anything ... but I bowled like a crazy mouther.
6I like to read, too. It's good because Jess carries a book all the time. If it's one I haven't read, I'll sit down and read between takes
7I'm just a person and I'm not larger than life.
8Oh my God. Nothing against the [teen] magazines because they definitely have their purposes, but I don't want to answer questions like "Do you have a girlfriend?" and "What is your favorite color?" Answering more adult questions is more intriguing and that's the vibe I'd like to give off.
9I just try not to subscribe to the ways of celebrity. I'm not a celebrity, I'm a working actor. A lot of the events -- the parties and the premieres that people go to to get noticed -- I'm just not into. I'll hang out with my friends, go see punk shows, read at home. At the same time, I have a production company, which is a lot of work.
10The Godfather 1 and 2, Goodfellas, The Matrix -- those are movies I can sit down and watch over and over again,
11My favorite episode is 'Teach Me Tonight,' the one with the car accident [Jess trashed the car Dean had remodeled for Rory.] Alexis and I were both so tired and laughing and goofing off and having fun, so it was funny for me to watch.
12On the WB holding deal: ... They said, 'Here's a lot of money and don't work for anybody else. We don't have anything for you, so you're going to be sitting for a while.' That was an interesting thing.
13Every job built my career in some way or made me grow as a person or I got to meet someone great. I had one line on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but I met Will Smith and he took 20 minutes out of his day to talk to the kid with one line. To this day, I think that guy is amazing because of that.
14It's [high school] an interesting time in your life because you're trying to act older and mature but you really have no idea what you're doing. You're scared and it's okay to be scared. It's okay to not know completely what you want or what you should be doing and to stumble a little bit.
15I'm a homebody, I'd rather be in the kitchen cooking than hanging out in a bar.
16I'm tough on the outside and soft on the inside [...] I'm really a shy guy.

18Started a production company named DiVide Pictures.
19Milo and Heroes (2006) co-star Adrian Pasdar auditioned for roles in the proposed Gilmore Girls spin-off where Milo was to be the son of Pasdar's character.

Eight years later, they were playing brothers Peter (Milo) and Nathan (Pasdar) Petrelli in Heroes (2006).
20He has a '67 Chevelle Super Sport named "Evelyn".
