"Potter" Movies David Thewlis Net Worth Revealed! Is He Gay Or Married?

Better known for his role as Professor Remus John Lupin, British actor David Thewlis' acting catalog spans over two decades and beyond the beloved Harry Potter series.

Movies starring the Blackpool native, as diverse as they are, don't always rack in big numbers on the box office -- something that gets reflected on his net worth. Nevertheless, it hasn't deterred him from landing a next significant role. Just take his voice acting feature on Netflix's animated series, Big Mouth.

The same goes for his married life. His unwillingness to commit to his girlfriends in the past has only worsened the gay allegations surrounding his sexuality.

In the years following his Harry Potter debut, David's career seemingly reached new heights with acting credits in plenty of blockbuster movies: The Boy in Striped Pajamas(2008), and The Theory of Everything(2014), to jot down a few.

Despite all the accolades for his performances, the Fargo actor's worldwide fame doesn't manifest itself into mouth-watering net worth. His current fortune hovers around seven-figure.

David, for his part, remains an optimist. Voicing the role of The Shame Wizard in 10-episode Netflix original Big Mouth, the Brit's optimism got met with massive fanfare and critical acclaim. For his voice-over in the animated series' second installment, Liz Miller of Indie Wire even labeled him "the season's all-stars performer."

Once Married David Fights Gay Rumors Amid Girlfriend Issues

The Besieged actor's esoteric taste in girlfriends is as convoluted as the characters he picks.

Starting with Sara Sugarman, David, age 55, married the eccentric Welsh filmmaker in 1992. The marriage, however, was cut short as he claims that the two had married each other for wrong reasons. Fourteen years after the annulment of his first and only marriage, the Kingdom of Heaven actor revealed:-

"It wasn't a proper marriage. It was to the wrong person for the wrong reasons. We ended up getting married just because we wanted to have a party, and the s*** thing was, it was a shockingly bad party."
