Mark Ruffalo 2005 Vs. 2016
Back in 2005, Mark Ruffalo had only appeared in small independent films, supplementing his checking account balance with a job as a bartender. The actor’s wardrobe was accordingly basic at the time, marked by staples like this t-shirt under a blazer that he wore to the Independent Spirit Awards. Nowadays, Ruffalo has a more versatile career, appearing in critically-acclaimed films like Spotlight, as well as playing the Incredible Hulk in several Marvel movies. With a net worth of about $14 million, he’s upgraded his style game as well, effortlessly pulling off outfits like this navy blue tuxedo at the 2016 Academy Awards.
