The Source of His Revenue
Seth MacFarlane has accumulated his revenue from multiple career paths, as a comedian, singer, actor, producer, animator, and director. The first time he earned some cash was many years ago in the animation studio when he was just nine. He received $5 every week for working on “The Kent Good Times Dispatch” comic strip.
Immediately after graduating, Seth worked for Hanna Barbera, the animation studio behind the famous cartoon shows Johny Bravo, Larry & Steve, Cow and Chicken, and Dexter’s Laboratory. Seth worked on all of them, which was a stepping-stone for his future million-dollar career.
Aside from his studio job, he also did some freelance gigs on well-known projects such as “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “Jungle Cubs.” But, with “Family Guy” – the $2 billion-dollar franchise, his income went over the roof. Despite all the controversies and cancellations, the show was the biggest source of income for Seth. As the creator of the show, between 2005 and 2008, he earned $2 million every year, but in 2009, he renegotiated his payment and got a deal for $10 million.
Living the Lavish Life
With his million-dollar revenue, Seth can treat himself to something extravagant, and when it comes to real estate, he doesn’t plan on saving a single dollar. Since 2008, his main home was at Beverly Hills, a huge mansion he managed to get for $13.5 million. But, in 2019, he decided to go for a change of pace and bought a $15.7 million luxurious home in Malibu, California.
What About His Love Life?
Seth has dated gorgeous actresses like Emilia Clarke, who most of us know as Daenerys Targaryen, the Game of Thrones star. They were together for a year from 2012 to 2013. He also dated Eliza Dushku, the actress from “Dollhouse.” But, despite his many relationships, he hasn’t tied the knot yet.
