Mary Tyler Moore Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

An actress, particularly known for her appearances in notable sitcoms “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”, “The Dick Van Dyke Show”, “Ordinary People” and “Thoroughly Modern Milly”. Mary Tyler Moore was born  on 29 December 1936, in Brooklyn, New York City USA, of part-English ancestry, but her career came to an end when she passed away in January 2017.

So just how rich was Mary Tyler Moore? It has been estimated by authoritative sources that Mary’s net worth was over $65 million at the time of her passing, earned from her career of almost 60 years in acting, which began in the late 1950s.

Mary Tyler Moore Net Worth $65 Million

As a teenager Mary wanted to become a dancer, and she did dance initially, but only in commercials. Moore’s acting career began when she became a part of the TV show “Ozzie and Harriet” in 1957, which brought her to notice and was when her net worth started to grow. One of her first roles in television shows was in “Richard Diamond, Private Detective”, in which she appeared with Regis Toomey, Barbara Bain, Russ Conway and others. Later Mary also acted in “Overland Trail”, “Johnny Staccato”, The Tab Hunter Show” and many other TV series, through which she became more noticed.

In 1961, Mary was cast in “The Dick Van Dyke Show”, working also with Rose Marie, Larry Mathews and others, which was very successful in several English-speaking countries, and saw Mary more popular and acclaimed. In 1970 Mary gained her own, most successful “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”, which quickly gained popularity, and had a huge impact on Mary’s net worth too during its seven year run. Other shows and movies that Mary appeared in include “The Last Best Year”, “Ellen”, “The Gin Game”, “That ‘70s Show” among many others.

In addition, Mary also performed on Broadway, taking part in such productions as “Whose Life Is It Anyway”, “Sweet Sue” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” among others, all relatively successful commercially, so adding to her wealth.

During her career as an actress Mary won many awards, including Golden Globe, Emmy, Tony Awards among others. There is also a statue dedicated to her in the City of Minneapolis.

What is more, Mary Tyler Moore published two memoirs: “After All” and “Growing Up Again: Life, Loves, and Oh Yeah, Diabetes”. These two books also contributed to Mary Tyler Moore’s net worth.

In her personal life, Mary Tyler Moore married Richard Carleton Meeker at 18, with whom she had her only child, a son, but they divorced in 1961. Moore married CBS executive Grant Tinker in 1962, and in 1970 they went into business together, launching a TV production company which actually produced “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”. However, they divorced in 1981. Mary was subsequently married to Robert Levine from 1983 until her death from pneumonia on 25 January 2017 in Greenwich, Connecticut.. Although Mary had some problems with alcoholism and health issues including diabetes and an operation for meningioma, she still continued acting in television shows and movies into her later years.

#Quote
1 I've been a diabetic for about 35 years now (as of 2012), and I'm one of the very lucky few who has managed to live that long without having major problems. I do have problems with my eyes, one eye in particular, and if I fall, I generally break a bone.
2 [about her pit bull Spanky]: He has, as with some dogs that have been written about, the ability to sense when things are off in their owners, their masters, whatever we're calling them in this day and age. He can tell when my blood sugar is dipping low.
3 [when she was cast as the icy mother in Ordinary People (1980)]: "I was thinking of my own family history and how we missed the mark of being everything that I'm sure people thought I was. Because I had, though nothing that would raise your eyebrows. I had problems with my father, in that he expected more from me than I was able to give. I did not do well in school, and that was a big disappointment to him. [on the other hand,] we did our shows, both the The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961) and mine, in front of audiences, and he and my mother would come to every show. And I could recognize my father's laugh."
4 [on throwing her hat in the air for the title shots for Mary Tyler Moore (1970)]: "It was a hat that my aunt had given me for Christmas, and I brought it with me because they said: 'Be sure and dress warm. It's going to be freezing in Minneapolis.' So - I forget which writer it was - but we were all outside, and he said: 'You know what would be good? If you take that hat, the beret, and throw it in the air.' "
5 Couldn't you just slap my face for being so positive and optimistic?
6 There are certain things about me that I will never tell to anyone because I am a very private person. But basically what you see is who I am. I'm independent, I do like to be liked, I do look for the good side of life and people. I'm positive, I'm disciplined, I like my life in order, and I'm neat as a pin. I love order and discipline. God, I sound like a Nazi don't I?
7 Diets are for those who are thick and tired of it.
8 I'm not an actress who can create a character. I play me.
9 Diabetes is an all-too-personal time bomb which can go off today, tomorrow, next year, or 10 years from now - a time bomb affecting millions like me and the children here today.
10 There is a dark side. I tend not to be as optimistic as Mary Richards. I have an anger in me that I carry from my childhood experiences -- I expect a lot of myself and I'm not too kind to myself.
11 Sometimes you have to get to know someone really well to realize you're really strangers.
