Debbie Reynolds Net Worth $85 Million

To begin with, the career of this outstanding actress began on the big screen when she appeared in the film “June Bride” (1948) directed by Bretaigne Windust. Soon she received a nomination for the Golden Globe Award as the New Star of the Year for her role in the film “Three Little Words” (1951). Then Reynolds starred in the legendary musical comedy “Singin’ in the Rain” (1952) with Gene Kelly and directed by Stanley Donen. The above mentioned musical had a modest start although it grew into one of the most recognized musicals worldwide. Subsequently, further reputable nominations for Academy and Golden Globe Awards followed (all for the Best Actress) for her roles in “Bundle of Joy” (1956), “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” (1964) and “The Debbie Reynolds Show” (1970). Afterwards, she appeared in popular cinema as well as television productions and was loved by audience. What is more, she won the Lifetime Achievement Award in Comedy by American Comedy Awards twice in 1996 and 1997. Her role in the feature film “Mother” (1997) has brought her the Satellite Award. Other well evaluated appearances were landed in “In & Out” (1998), “A Gift of Love: The Daniel Huffman Story” (2000) and “Will & Grace” (2000). Lately, she has received Screen Actors Guild Award (2014) to honour all the achievements of her life. Of course, all these roles and award achievements have considerably assisted the rise in Debbie’s net worth.

Debbie Reynolds is known as a great singer, too. She recorded a very popular duet entitled “Aba Daba Honeymoon” (1950) alongside Carleton Carpenter, which became one of the most popular hits of that time. More, her song “Tammy” (1957) received gold certification which also increased her net worth. Her album “Debbie” (1959) reflected her intellectual sense of music, and attention to the listener. Other successful songs recorded by Reynolds were “A Very Special Love” (1958) and “Am I That Easy to Forget” (1960).

Talking about family life, Debbie Reynolds has been married three times and all her marriages ended with divorce. From 1955 to 1959, she was married to actor, singer and entertainer Eddie Fisher – their daughter Carrie Fisher is now a famous actress, and son Todd Fisher an actor, director and producer. From 1960 to 1973, her husband was Harry Karl. Her third marriage with Richard Hamlett lasted for 12 years, from 1984 to 1996.

The production ultimately ran some 20 months. In 1976, she appeared in a one-woman, short-run (10 days - 14 performances) review named "Debbie!" at the Minskoff Theatre.

#Quote
1 [on the announcement that daughter Carrie Fisher is in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)] She's very excited about it . . . she's been on a diet ever since, because you know they have to be up to par, so she looks terrific, she's lost 40 pounds.
2 [on Carrie Fisher] People used to call her "Debbie Reynolds' daughter," now they call me "Princess Leia's mother!"
3 I only had radio growing up, so I loved going to the movies. I always had a thing for a fairy-tale ending.
4 [on the death of Tony Curtis] Nobody had a better time than Tony. He loved the ladies. He loved art. He loved this business more than anything. He was a great looking guy, handsome. We were all very close friends when we were young, a long, long time ago. But he had a wonderful life. He had a full life. He was a great, marvellous actor.
5 I do 20 minutes every time the refrigerator door opens and the light comes on.
6 Daddy had got us rooms in a motel until he could find us a house. There were not a lot of places available for a young family on our budget. Daddy went around to dozens of places. Nobody wanted kids. Finally, he found one in the hills south of Glendale. As usual, the landlady asked if he had kids. "Yep,' he replied. "A boy and a girl". "Well, whatta you going to do about them?" she wanted to know, implying that she didn't allow children. "I'm gonna take 'em out and drown them in the Los Angeles River, and come back tomorrow". That was my father--ask a silly question and just wait. She must have had the same sense of humor--we moved in the next day.
7 [asked what her favorite film is] I think one of my favorite films is Dark Victory (1939) with Bette Davis. Why? She was so wonderful in that film. And . . . maybe I just want a good cry once in a while without having to go through a divorce.
8 I stopped making movies because I don't like taking my clothes off. Maybe it's realism but, in my opinion, it's utter filth.
9 Singin' in the Rain (1952) and childbirth were the two hardest things I ever had to do in my life.
