Simon Helberg Net Worth $4 Million

American actor and comedian, Simon Helberg has an estimated net worth of $4 million using a salary of $100 thousand per episode of The Big Bang Theory. Helberg is best known for his character as Howard Wolowitz in the sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Though initially typecast in comedic characters; including a tiny turn in Old School (2003), a contribution to Tracey Ullman in The Trailer Tales (2003), and work on MADtv, Helberg immediately branched out into diverse genres. In 2007, Helberg was cast in the standard part of Howard Wolowitz on the sitcom The Big Bang Theory, about a couple of nerdy physicists (Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons) who fight with girls, and everything else outside the laboratory. In 2007, Helberg also made appearances in the comedies Mama’s Boy and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Helberg was born in Los Angeles, California on December 9, 1980 and is the son of German-born actor Sandy Helberg.

Quotes

#Quote
1We're going to do a natural birth. At first she was like, 'We should do it at home,' and I said, 'Look, either way, when you go into labor, I will be checking into a hospital... so if you want to come along, come along.
2I walked into the wrong examination room. I'm bad enough at facial recognition... I saw more that day than I cared to. Fortunately, I didn't recognize her from that angle, whoever it was, and I didn't ask. I'm off to a rocky start on the road to fatherhood, but I got a free view.
3I thought it was going to be a hut in Topanga and Janis Joplin was going to come out, but it's a real doctor... I went to Beverly Hills to meet this midwife; you'd think they'd be in nature.
4I wouldn't wear turtlenecks. That I'm not envious of. But who knows? I might sneak out a few things and hope and pray that no one says, 'Hey, didn't you wear that when you were playing an enormous geek on TV?'
5I actually struggled through teaching myself to cook because I'm completely ignorant in the kitchen. So I did really macho things like trying to make my own curry. Really hardcore stuff.
6Actually, when I was young, I believe I met Nicolas Cage. I think I was probably eight, and I remember seeing him at somebody's house - it was an event and he happened to be there. People would ask me if I was his son, because I looked like him at that point, so I do remember feeling some connection and just wanting to say, like, 'Papa!'
7Well, I think that everybody is kind of a nerd at heart.
8I don't believe I'll be in the new Arrested Development (2003) unless they ask me, in which case, okay! That's how easy I am to get.
9I'm married, so I tend not to hit on every girl.
