For the past half a century, Clint Eastwood's net worth has been ascending due to the icon's work both in front and behind the screen, having been taught how to direct by some of the most amazing people to have made films in the history of American and European film.

It was in 1955, 60 years ago, when Scott Eastwood's father had his first ever film role in a B-movie called "Revenge of the Creature," though the appearance, practically a cameo, didn't do much to improve Clint Eastwood's net worth - but great things awaited the actor!

It wasn't until nearly a decade later, in 1964, when Clint Eastwood's net worth would begin to truly ascend, as the then 34 year-old starred in what's still considered among his most iconic films to date: the classic Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western "A Fistful of Dollars," his first collaboration with the director.

As he became a worldwide sensation, he would go on to star in two more films directed by Leone ("For a Few Dollars More" in 1965 and "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" in 1966, considered the Dollar Trilogy by scholars all over the world), films that wouldn't only increase Clint Eastwood's net worth but also teach him a lot of what he came to know about working as a director.

Besides having played the iconic Western anti-hero The Man Without a Name in Leone's films, Eastwood stands in the crows for another iconic character: Dirty Harry. It was working in the first installment where he'd meet Don Siegel, his other mentor, to whom, decades later, he would dedicate his Oscar-winning film "Unforgiven" along with Leone.

In the past few years, Clint Eastwood's net worth has come mostly from his work as a director, focusing on life behind the camera rather than in front of it, with a series of amazing movies in the past couple of decades such as his two Best Picture winners, "Unforgiven" and "Million Dollar Baby," the latter of which saw pal Morgan Freeman get his first Oscar.

Most recently, Eastwood found critical and box office success once again directing "American Sniper," a biopic about Chris Kyle starring Bradley Cooper in an Academy Award-nominated role.

Now, Deadline reports that Clint Eastwood's net worth is about to rise once more, as the iconic Hollywood star and director is on the verge of hiring two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks to star in his latest film, a biopic about Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, the man who saved the lives of 155 people in the US Airways Flight 1549 back in 2009.

Currently, Clint Eastwood's net worth stands at $375 million according to Celebrity Net Worth, and it seems like, at 85 years old, the man behind films like "Mystic River" and "Gran Torino" still has a lot of amazing films to offer to the world.
