As a child, he would make films with his sibling and friends. In the mid-1970s, he made his acting debut on a show that did not last long that his mother was on that was called "Kate McShane". His parents would show him the life of being in movies by taking him on their sets, giving him an odd childhood experience.
His films have grossed over $2.5 billion in the United States and Canada, averaging $79 million per film, and this is where most of his net worth comes from. Once he appeared in "There's Something About Mary", a film that grossed $120 million (the first of Stiller's films to do so), he was able to receive more money for appearing in films. "There's Something About Mary" was a big film for him, and saw his net worth steadily start to climb after that.
Most of his family friendly films like the "Madagascar" films or the "Night at the Museum" trilogy have grossed him a lot of money after doing very well at the box office. The three "Meet the Parents" films have done very well at the box office; the first film made over $300 million, "Meet the Fockers grossed over $500 million, and "Little Fockers" grossed $310 million, for which Stiller received a nice up front payment just for showing up and acting in.
There are some films that Stiller has done, that have been bigger with the critics than their performance at the box office would suggest; films like "Greenberg", "Zero Effect", and "Your Friends and Neighbors", as well as some others.
Since directing "Reality Bites" in the 1990s, he has gone on to direct several more movies. Films such as "Zoolander", "Tropic Thunder", "The Cable Guy", and "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty". He directed one Oscar nominated performance, that was Robert Downey Jr. in "Tropic Thunder". He has also produced such films as "Megamind", "Dodgeball", "Blades of Glory", "Starsky and Hutch", and "Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny".
