What are his most popular movies?
As we mentioned above, Meet the Parents, Zoolander, and Tropic Thunder are loved by fans. With such a long and varied career though, Stiller has made a ton of awesome flicks.

Like many of the actors we feature, he started working early and has significant real estate holdings. Ben Stiller has properties in New York, Los Angeles and Hawaii.
One other thing Stiller has done consistently well throughout his career is choosing projects carefully. He famously quit SNL after only five shows. That's a gig most up-and-coming stars would kill for, but he let it go simply because the atmosphere wasn't right for him.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Meet the Parents did so well he turned an awkward rom-com into a franchise.
The other thing that sets Stiller apart from other stars is his total involvement in his projects. His best-loved features often credit him as not only an actor but a writer and a director too. Hey, that's three paychecks for one guy.

One thing that keeps them bound together? Stiller and Taylor have two children. Their daughters, Quinn and Ella, are 14 and 17 years old, respectively.
Even with the divorce, Ben Stiller appears to be quite close to his ex-wife and kids. He stepped out with his daughter, Ella, earlier this year at the Golden Globe awards.
Today, Ben Stiller is technically a single Dad. Don't feel too bad for him though. With two beautiful kids, $200 Million in the bank and Justin Theroux as a wingman, he's doing alright.
