Jonathan Sadowski is far from being an A-list Hollywood actor, but nothing can take away from his talent and character, which have made him popular with fans of all the shows he has appeared in. The 1.85m tall American is best known for playing the role of young tech entrepreneur and self-made millionaire Josh Kaminski in Young & Hungry (2014-2018).
Jonathan Sadowski was born in Chicago, Illinois, on November 23, 1979, to an Italian mother named Marirose and a Polish father named Robert Sadowski. Not much is known about his early life, except that he was inspired to pursue an acting career after participating in a production of The Phantom of the Opera in high school.
Sadowski then enrolled at the University of Illinois, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theater. After graduating, the aspiring actor moved to Los Angeles, California, where he hoped to make his big breakthrough. The success did not come immediately for him, because he could only land very small roles at the beginning. The payment he received for these roles could not feed him, so he had no choice but to accept a job as a bartender and chauffeur. He is said to have worked at the Griddle Café in West Hollywood, among other places, before he appeared in the romantic-comic sports comedy She’s the Man (2006) starring Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum.
Jonathan Sadowski’s role here propelled him to greater heights when he appeared in his first feature film “Live Free or Die Hard” (2007), episodes of the medical drama “House”, and on Friday, December 13, 2009, while the rest became history.
Jonathan Sadowski Net Worth
Jonathan Sadowski has an estimated net worth of $4 million. Born in Chicago, he had to do his fair share of odd jobs before making his big breakthrough, he was able to amass such a relatively large fortune from his various roles in front of the camera, especially as Sayles in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008), and Henry Goodson in S#*! My Dad Says (2010-2011), among others.
Is He Gay?
There are some reports that suggest that Jonathan Sadowski might be gay, which is completely wrong. The story seems to date back to the time when the actor played the role of the gay dresser named Paul in the series “She’s The Man” (2006). The rumor was further fuelled by his repeated frankness about gays and gay marriage, with one of these tweets saying, “Making same-sex marriages illegal on the basis of religious beliefs is like telling someone they can’t have a cookie because you’re on a diet.
Does He Have a Wife or Girlfriend?
Jonathan Sadowski is not married, but he is engaged to his long-time girlfriend Melissa Lynn. According to her Twitter biography, Ms. Lynn is a professional stylist, passionate thrifter, part-time traveler, and full-time foodie.
It is not clear how the couple met, but supposedly they have been a couple since 2010. Throughout their relationship, Sadowski and Lynn have tried to stay out of the tabloids, as there have been no reports of infidelity or other shenanigans that people in Hollywood get involved in. Sadowski took the courageous step of proposing to his wife on June 5, 2015. After she said yes, the Young & Hungry actor went to Instagram to break the news to her. His co-star in the show, Emily Osment, reportedly was present when he proposed and also went to the popular social media site to spread the news while congratulating the couple.
In 2018, Lynn and Sadowski are still strong, although there is no indication that they would exchange their marriage vows and change their legal status in the foreseeable future. This does not seem to bother any of them, as they have always presented themselves as happy in each other’s company. Both parties have always been quick to post photos of the other on Instagram and proudly tell the world how much they mean to each other.
