    Movies: Pretty woman (1990), Home Alone 1 & 2, all Toy Story, Bug story, Jurassic Park. He also did 'Friends' and Grey's Anatomy. I forgot that other movies, but I know that he later started buying stocks making super rich. Like the youngest self made billionaire in history. He got a harem and copied Iron man's house.

    Right. How does the world feel about him? Because of harem? Fame at young age? Playboy? Can you tell me an opproximate age for some of his success? Like when does he become a billionare? Richest man in the world? Also, how do the girls feel about each other? This isn't ancient china, so I doubt that they are Ok with his harem? My last question is: Does a get his own movie about his life like every big shot in the world? Sorry another question:oops: Do any of his girls cheat on him? Does he get kidnap, or do any of his girls do?

    Whoa, so many questions! Let's hide this behind spoiler tags.
    He's already nationally famous after Home Alone, and his fame just keeps rising from there.

    He's a modern day Howard Hughes, if you know what he did back then. Sleeping his way through the Hollywood stars. Same kind of controversy, but it only becomes a big problem once around chapter 275 IIRC. It's not talked about too much otherwise, but the impression I get is that there's more admiration than hate, since he's so rich and successful at such a young age.

    Later in the story (800-something?), they're planning out the Marvel Cinematic Universe, specifically Iron Man. Eric is describing him as genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, and Stan Lee says "why don't you play him? Tony Stark was based on Howard Hughes in the first place, and you're like a better version of him already." Eric turns it down at first but after casting doesn't work out he decides to do it.
    Starts in 1988. I think it's around the year 1997 now at chapter 1016?

    I think he becomes a billionaire around 1990 during the Gulf War. Might have been earlier. it's not treated as a huge milestone IIRC.

    I can't remember what year he becomes richest man in the world. At one point he passes Warren Buffett (the previous richest man) but gets Forbes magazine to falsify it down so he's fifth richest instead. By the next year he's like double the next guy so they don't bother anymore.

    In general the films in the novel are released something like 1-2 years earlier than they were in this world. It's how the MC is always buying the scripts he needs, or the rights, or in some cases he just writes it himself. He published the stories of Jurassic Park, Resident Evil, and the Matrix himself. He also likes swapping around actors he thought were miscast, which is really funny looking back.
    No movie about himself yet, unless you count Iron Man :p.
    All of his girls know upfront what the deal is, so they accept it. I think they all know there are others. Jennifer Aniston is the most jealous about it, so she goes away near the beginning (during the controversy stuff) and doesn't rejoin the harem until the latest 100 or so chapters. I forget exactly when, but he gets a set of 52 custom rings made, one for each playing card in a deck, and gives one to all the actual harem members (8 so far).

    Besides the actual harem members, he keeps the others he sleeps with at a bit more distance but doesn't hesitate to splurge on them. Money, cars, travel, clothes, he's really generous but he doesn't open up to them as much.

    Neither he nor any of his harem cheat on him per se, although Elisabeth and Julia also sleep with each other. That doesn't count, right? No one gets kidnapped either; although Eric's car gets attacked by bandits when returning from Titanic's set in Rosarito, Mexico, it ends in like a chapter without much suspense.

    IIRC they do it first, then later he joins them. It's been a while so I'm not 100% sure.

    Hmmm I didn't realize that I left it off the list above... this is from memory again, sorry for anything I forgotten or mistaken.

    He recently (in the translation) signed a cooperation agreement with Fox for 3 movies. He'll re-negotiate one of the movies into some TV shows. First he develops Friends, Who wants to be a millionaire, and the X-Files for Fox. Then later (after buying Disney) he ends up buying ABC. Friends moves over to ABC but the other two stay with Fox. The shows after that are developed mostly for his own TV stations. Survivor and ER debut on ABC. America's Next Top Model and Project Runway are made for Lifetime, which is half-owned by Disney. The Real Housewives shows are on E! which at the time was owned by ABC, etc.
