Stephen Hawking Net Worth - The Hollywood film, "The Theory of Everything," has shed light not only on the Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), but on Stephen Hawking's life as well. Having been named the world's smartest human being, Hawking is sure to be worth quite a lot. So, how much exactly is the scientist worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Stephen Hawking's net worth is at $20 million. The 72-year old scientist has gained much of his millions from being the director of research at the Center for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge.

Despite Celebrity Net Worth claiming Stephen Hawking's net worth is only at a measly $20 million, a report by Media Mass claim the scientist is worth $46 million. Hawking reportedly gained $20 million more between Nov. 2013 and Nov. 2014.

The Richest on the other hand still notes Stephen Hawking's net worth at $20 million. Apart from earning most from being a scientist, Hawking also gained most of his millions from being an astrophysicist, mathematician, astronomer, writer, author, cosmologist, physicist, and professor.

Even if Hawking is the smartest person on the planet, Stephen Hawking's net worth is comparatively lower than the stars of "Duck Dynasty." Reports by the Inquisitr claim that the Robertson family earn more than the physicist.

Not everything of course is all seriousness for the scientist. Hawking recently made a cameo appearance for the hit television series, "The Big Bang Theory." Though he might have made a quick stint for the show, this did not affect Stephen Hawking's net worth.

It did however affect his fame. More people started to delve into the life of Hawking, which is why it wasn't the least bit surprising that a film would be made to honor his life. Eddie Redmayne plays the part of Hawking in the film and masterfully captures the actions and attitude of Hawking.
