Tao Ruspoli Net Worth $9 million


Tao is the son of actress Debra Berger and aristocrat Prince Alessandro Ruspoli; he was raised in Rome and Los Angeles. Later, he would attend the University of California, Berkeley where he would study philosophy.

Ruspoli first found popularity in his feature film entitled “Fix” – which became part of the 2008 Slamdance Film Festival – starring Olivia Wilde, Shawn Andrews and Megalyn Echikunwoke. The film would make it to the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and would win the Heineken Red Star Award as the most innovative and progressive filmmaker. The film would also win an award at the Vail Film Festival, the 2008 Twin Rivers Media Festival, and the Brooklyn Film Festival. His net worth started to increase, and he then focused on making more documentaries which would earn popularity as well. One such projects is “Being in the World” which explores the work of Martin Heidegger and its real world implications.

Tao also made a documentary entitled “Just Say Know”, which is about his family’s drug addiction. He also does a lot of films about Flamenco which is one of his other passions. He created the feature-length documentary “Flamenco: A Personal Journey” which showcases how Gypsies in Spain live life with flamenco, and others including “El Cable” and “This Film Needs No Title: A Portrait of Raymond Smullyan” which is about the concert pianist and mathematician Raymond Smullyan. All contributed to his rising net worth.

Aside from his film work, Tao founded The Los Angeles Filmmakers Cooperative (LAFCO) from which he has created several films. He has also tried his hand at producing, helping create “Camjackers”. The film would win the best editing award at the 44th Ann Arbor Film Festival.

A few of his latest endeavors include playing flamenco, and working as a photographer, but he also continues to do film work from his base in Venice, Los Angeles. His net worth also continues to build over the years.

For his personal life, it is known that Tao married actress Olivia Wilde in 2003. Their marriage lasted until 2011 when Wilde filed for divorce, and it was finalized later in the year; the pair reached a private agreement on property division. Tao’s siblings include Bartolomeo dei Principi Ruspoli, and Francesco, 10th Prince of Cerveteri.
