Ann-Margret Net Worth $20 Million

Ann Margret was raised in Sweden, by her parents Anna Regina and Carl Gustav Olsson. Right after WWII, at the age of six, she moved with her family and they settled near Chicago, Illinois, USA, and in the early years started taking dancing classes. Although she enrolled at Northwestern University, she never graduated. however, this hasn’t stopped her from making a career in the entertainment industry, and an impressive amount of money.

During her short stay at college in 1959, Ann-Margret formed a jazz combo called The Suttletones with three male classmates. In the pursuit of a singing career, she headed for the West Coast followed by her band. While on tour in Las Vegas, she caught the eye of Hollywood veteran George Burns which lead to a recording contract from RCA and a seven-year movie contract from 20th Century Fox.

In 1961, she made her big-screen debut in Frank Capra’s movie “Pocketful of Miracles” and also released her first album “And Here She Is, Ann-Margret”; her single “I Just Don’t Understand” peaked at #17 for six weeks in the Billboard Top 40 Chart. That’s when she has started making her fortune, acted in “State Fair” (1962), and by the time she starred in the 1963 Broadway play adaptation of “Bye Bye Birdie”, she was already established as a star. With two albums and several hit singles behind her, she was invited to president JFK’s 46th birthday party.

The real breakthrough came in 1964 when Ann- Margret starred opposite Elvis Presley in “Viva Las Vegas”, and she became a Top 10 Box Office star and even a Golden Globe nominee. Because of her sexy singing voice and stunning beauty, magazines and the media made her into a national superstar sex symbol. Needless to say, all this helped add a lot to the overall amount of her net worth.

During Vietnam War, she toured across Vietnam and Southeast Asia to cheer the troops. and she still shows great affection and respect to the veterans.

Since the 1970s, Ann has appeared in numerous films, musicals, and TV shows including “Carnal Knowledge”(1971), “Tommy” (1975), “Who Will Love My Children”(1983), “A Streetcar Named Desire”(1984), “Grumpy Old Men” (1993), and the “Law & Order: SVU” TV series. She has also won numerous awards among which most recently is an Emmy for a guest role in the TV series “Law & Order: SVU” in 2010, which certainly helped in enlarging her net worth. In total, Ann-Margret has appeared in almost 70 films, and 30 TV productions during a career now spanning over 50 years.

By publishing an autobiography in 1994 entitled “Ann-Margret: My Story”, she revealed her issues with alcoholism, but also gained some publicity. In 1995 the magazine Empire ranked Ann 10th of 100 Sexiest Stars in film history. It is certain that this acknowledgement made a positive impact on her net worth.

Talking about Ann-Margret’s personal life, allegedly she has been romantically connected to Eddie Fisher, Hugh O’Brian, Frankie Avalon, Vince Edwards and Burt Sugarman. She admits in her autobiography to having had a romance with Elvis Presley, that later become a lifelong bond of friendship. However, she has been married since 1967 to Roger Smith, an actor who later become her manager. Together, they raised three children from Smith’s previous marriage. Her passion when not working is for motorcycling.
