Nolan Gould may have made millions of dollars playing on Modern Family, but that doesn’t mean he had to spend his money on everything he wanted. In 2017, he told Entertainment Tonight that the first thing he messed about with was a stand-up base. He recalled, “I remember it was $ 400 and I was freaking out. I was like, ‘Mom! Never again! I won’t spend any money until I buy a house!’ That didn’t last long. “

Despite his huge salary – which started at $ 70,000 per episode and rose to $ 125,000 (per term) – the actor’s mother had a fixed allowance for him. According to Beth Kobliner’s website, Nolan received an allowance of $ 30 per week. He explained: “I have to balance myself so that I don’t spend everything during working hours and then have nothing for the summer.” The star added, “Most of this will go to a college fund and I’ll save.”

All of his savings paid off; In 2021, according to Celebrity Net Worth, Gould is an estimated $ 12 million – money that helped buy his own apartment and move out of his parents’ home. “I’ve grown up in all sorts of ways now,” he told ET after revealing that it felt “weird” to be a homeowner when I was 18.
