Beside this, how much is Erin Brockovich worth today?

Currently, Erin Brockovich is estimated to be worth $42 million.

Beside above, did Erin Brockovich really get 2 million? The film, which opened in Britain last week, is about a brash single mother who starts a job as a law clerk and goes on to win $333 million for more than 600 of Hinkley's residents who were being poisoned by chromium 6 leaking from a gas transmission plant owned by Pacific Gas & Electric.

In respect to this, was the movie Erin Brockovich accurate?

According to Brockovich herself, "the movie was true and probably 98% accurate". She has not been specific about what constitutes the 2% inaccuracy, though elsewhere she has said that she was not, as the film claims, Miss Wichita. She was Miss Pacific Coast.

Did Erin Brockovich get sick?

The real Erin Brockovich-Ellis actually got sick from the chromium poisoning she was investigating. Steven Soderbergh decided to leave that aspect out of the film as it would make Erin out to be too much of a martyr. "It was a tough call, because Erin really did get sick and was hospitalized for a while."
