It’s one thing to be the daughter of a famous person, and another thing to be a celebrity yourself. When you’re the offspring of someone as loved and celebrated as Howard Stern, it’s bound to be a lot easier. As sweet as it may seem, Emily Beth Stern has managed to make a successful career that doesn’t match her father’s reputation.
Emily is not just the daughter of a celebrity; she is an actress, singer, songwriter, and photographer who has become famous for her commitment to her career. You may wonder why the actress doesn’t build on her father’s fame, well, you’ll find out soon enough.
All The Ways Emily Beth Stern Makes Her Money
Emily Beth Stern works hard for every cent she earns, even though she is the daughter of an extremely popular celebrity. Her father is famous for the Howard Stern Show. In addition to his status as a radio personality, Shock-Jockock is also known as a producer, writer, and television personality. Abandoned by her influential father to find her way in the industry, Emily earns her living as an actress, professional photographer, and singer/songwriter with a released album.
She began her acting career after graduating from the Tish School of Arts at New York University, where she studied theater arts. She made her acting debut in 2005 with Kabbalah, a play in the Jewish Theater in New York as Madonna. But instead of sending her in search of an established actress, her role in the play went awry when the director leaked her nude video to promote the production.
Her second play “Earth Sucks” (2008) did not share the controversy of the first play, and it helped her career as an actress a lot. Since then, Emily Beth Stern has starred in films like The Elevator Game (2015) and Remember Me (2017). There is no doubt that acting has been an important source of income for her.
Earnings from Music and Photography
An impressive fact about Emily Beth Stern is that she is as innovative, creative, and talented as her father. She is not only an actress but also a singer-songwriter. Her first studio album entitled Birth Day was released on October 23, 2013. An album with 11 songs including “Given Love”, “Hear In The Heart”, “Zoo Za Zoo” and “Love The Child Who Cries”, Birth Day was released by Tree of Light Publishing Records.
As a professional photographer, some of her work has been exhibited both publicly and privately. She held a photo exhibition entitled Wells of Miriam, focusing on the water retention landscape in Portugal at the Jewish Museum of New Jersey in 2016. While her father is worth a whopping $650 million, Emily Beth Stern has not disclosed her assets, and it’s hard to say what she earns from her various efforts.
Details of Her Relationship with Her Famous Father
Emily is the first of three daughters born to Howard Stern. She was born on May 7, 1983, in Old Westbury, Long Island, New York. She is three years older than her sister Deborah and ten years older than Ashley, who was born in 1993.
Howard Stern married Emily’s mother, a former actress/psychoanalyst, named Alison Berns on June 4, 1978. The duo met while studying at Boston University.
Emily Beth Stern Thinks Her Father Is a Narcissist
She had the typical upbringing of a celebrity child, which is probably the reason for her quarrel with her father. Emily has grown into an independent woman and usually has conflicting interests with Howard. According to the actress, her father constantly reminded her and her sisters that people were watching her. Although the radio personality insisted that he did this to protect his children, Emily maintained this as narcissism. She believes her father is only interested in taking care of himself and concentrating only on his work.
There are reasons to believe that the relationship between Emily Beth Stern and her father deteriorated after he separated from her mother in 1999. The news of her separation came as a shock to her children, especially to Emily, who felt that the divorce came out of nowhere. In an interview, she would later say that the divorce and her father’s subsequent marriage to Beth Ostrosky in 2008 shook her belief in being an icon for those who look up to her.
Nonetheless, she has been able to nurture a cordial relationship with both of her parents.
