Tommy Wiseau is an American who was once a European who is not only an actor but also a filmmaker. Being the Jack of all trades that he is, he was the director, producer as well as the lead actor of a film known as The Room. As a director, he also worked on Homeless and The Neighbours in 2004 and 2015, respectively. Now let’s have a close look at Tommy Wiseau’s net worth in 2018.
Tommy Wiseau Early Life
There has been a lack of certainty when it comes to the birthday of Tommy Wiseau. To begin with, he once gave an age that as of that time indicated that he could have been born either in 1968 or 1969. However, there came yet another source that didn’t rhyme with the years mentioned above. It was none other than the girlfriend of his brother. According to her, having obtained his papers regarding his U.S. immigration, the year must have been earlier than he claimed. It must have been one in the 1950s.
His origin was not precise for a long time as well. However, he confirmed his European descent in November 2017. The following month, he told Howard Stern that he was not only a Catholic, but he also speaks French. A year before that, there was a rumor that he had originated from Poznan city.
One would wonder what is straightforward with this man. That is because there is a conflict with his birth name as well. Is it Tomasz Wieczor, Tomasz Wieczorkiewicz or none of the above? All the fans can hope for is that he will clarify it some day. He obtained his current name after becoming a U.S. citizen.
If all that is a secret, it would be naivity to think that it is exceptional when it comes to his other part of life. Neither his education nor his early life is documented. It gets even worse when it comes to his relationships as well as marriages.
Tommy migrated to the United States. At first, he lived in Louisiana but later moved to San Francisco. He claims to be a holder of a psychology degree from the Laney Community College, Oakland.
