Lisa Jakub Wiki Biography

Lisa Jakub was born on 27 December 1978, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, of Scottish and Slovak ancestry. Lisa is a speaker, writer and former actress, best known for appearing in the film “Mrs. Doubtfire” playing Lydie Hillard. She has also appeared in numerous other films, and all of her efforts have helped put her net worth to where it is today.

How rich is Lisa Jakub? As of mid-2017, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $300,000, mostly earned through success in various endeavors. She was active in the film and television industry from 1985 up to 2000. As she continues her career in writing, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.

Lisa attended multiple schools while she was growing up. After matriculating from high school, she attended Hillfield-Strathallan College.

Jakub’s first film opportunity came in 1985’s “Eleni”, a film adaptation of the memoir of journalist Nicholas Cage and starred John Malkovich and Kate Nelligan. More opportunities started opening up for Jakub which increased her net worth, and she was then cast in one of her most notable films – “Mrs. Doubtfire” – which stars Robin Williams and Mara Wilson, and is based on the novel “Alias Madame Doubtfire”. The film won several awards including an Academy Award for Best Makeup and Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. Afterwards, Jakub would play Sandra in the film “Matinee”, which is a comedy starring John Goodman.

Lisa’s net worth continued to grow with appearances in “A Pig’s Tale” and “The Beautician and the Beast”. She was also cast in the 1996 science fiction film “Independence Day”, considered one of the turning points in Hollywood’s treatment of alien films, and which grossed over $817.4 million worldwide, the highest grossing film of 1996 and the second highest grossing film of all time, at that point. Lisa was also cast in the short film “George Lucas in Love” in which she played the woman who was the inspiration for the “Star Wars” character, Princess Leia. In 1995, Lisa then starred in “Picture Perfect”, and two years later played a bordello worker in “Painted Angels”. Some of her latest projects were on television, including guest appearances in “Mentors” and “Jack & Jill”, but also the television films “The Royal Diaries: Isabel – Jewel of Castilla” and “Dream House”, all adding to her net worth.

Jakub retired from acting in 2001 and would keep a low profile. She started earning more popularity and increased her net worth somewhat as she forayed into writing. In 2015, she wrote “You Look Like That Girl: A Child Actor Stops Pretending and Finally Grows Up”, and two years later released “Not Just Me: Anxiety, Depression, and Learning to Embrace Your Weird”.

For her personal life, it is known that Lisa married longtime partner and former Hollywood theatre manager Jeremy Jones in 2005. She has no plans to return in acting. Aside from these, Lisa was apparently expelled from her school when she was cast in “Mrs. Doubtfire”.

Lisa Jakub Quotes

  • It’s never too late to change your mind and be who you were meant to be. Our minds can be really powerful things, and they can come up with a million reasons as to why you can’t make a change. Our minds can say that it’s not logical, or it’s been like this for too long, or it’s too hard, or what are people going to think. But sometimes it’s more important to live from your gut and from your heart than from your head… It’s okay to decide that being happy is worth more than getting the law degree, or marrying your high-school sweetheart because they were nice enough, or being an actor because you think you’re incapable of doing anything else. It’s never too late to take charge of your destiny and make a different contribution to the world.
