The actor, who gained recognition as the star of the films “The Adventures of Pluto Nash” (where he co-starred Eddie Murphy and Rosario Dawson), “Goya’s Ghosts” (where he met charming Natalie Portman at a film set) etc, saved $1 million net worth.

But now his pockets (as well as his bank account) are empty and Randy Quaid is unemployed. So, how did he become rich? And how did he lose everything?

Randy Quaid’s Money Problems

As many other famous talented people, Randy Quaid lost everything because of drug addiction. He was fired from Broadway musical “Lone Star Love” because he had been caught, using drugs just in his dressing-room.

After that Randy and his wife Evi Motolanez stayed unemployed. They didn’t get any significant salary, at the same time the couple got used to wealthy lifestyle. That’s why they stayed in a number of expensive hotels and then left without paying. After disappearing without footing $10, 000 bill in a lavish venue in Santa-Barbara Randy and Evi were arrested. Evi was sentenced to 3 years of probation and Randy Quaid avoided punishment.

It is not known, if the ex-movie star Randy Quaid has a regular job now. But no doubt, his net worth is close to zero.
