Bill Hader, who has played a wide range of roles in both film and television, has built a considerable fortune over the years.

The "Saturday Night Live" alum has an estimated net worth of $12 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

The 43-year-old Oklahoma native, who made headlines this week after outlets reported that he has been dating "Pitch Perfect" actress Anna Kendrick for over a year, worked odd jobs before finding success as an actor, writer and filmmaker.

Due to his poor grades, Hader was rejected by the best film schools in the country. He got accepted at The Art Institute of Phoenix, and later, he studied at Scottsdale Community College.

While studying, Hader took on jobs such as selling Christmas trees and acting as an usher at cinemas. Eventually, he dropped out of college and moved to Los Angeles, with an intention of starting a career as a filmmaker.

When Hader was starting out in the industry, he reportedly worked 18-hour days as a production assistant on the set of movies such as "Spider-Man" and "James Dean." Eventually, he quit after pulling a 20-hour day on the set of "The Scorpion King."

The first short film he worked on ended up being a failure, according to Hader. He then fell in love with comedy and formed his own sketch comedy group. After his group started gaining attention, Hader scored an invitation to audition for "Saturday Night Live." He got accepted and stayed on the show from 2005 to 2013.

In the mid-2000s, Hader began to transition toward film roles, starting with "You, Me and Dupree."

Hader went on to appear in a number of films, including "Knocked Up," "Hot Rod," "The Brothers Solomon," "Superbad,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Pineapple Express" and "Night at the Museum."

Aside from being an actor, Hader is also a writer and producer. He co-wrote and starred in the web series "The Line" and co-produced the animated series "South Park," which won the Emmy for best animated series in 2009.

In 2018, he created and co-starred in the series "Barry," which won two Emmys.

Hader is also a voice actor. He has worked on several series and films including “Aqua Teen Force Hunger," "Xavier: Renegade Angel," "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs."

In 2014, Hader acquired a property in Pacific Palisades, California, for $3.05 million. He purchased another home in the same area in 2019 for $4.2 million.

Hader was previously married to Maggie Carey, a writer and director. They announced their separation in 2017, and the divorce was finalized the following year. The former couple shares three children.

Hader is now dating Kendrick, with whom he previously worked in the 2019 Disney+ Christmas movie "Noelle," People reported.

While the two stars have yet to publicly address the news, an unnamed source told the outlet they got together "well after" co-starring in the film.

"They are both very private people, and with the pandemic, it was easy to keep it quiet," the source added. "They're both hysterical so they must keep each other laughing all of the time. She's really, really happy."
