Mickey Rooney Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Joseph Yule Jr., to the audience known as Mickey Rooney, was a famous American actor, film producer and director, radio personality, as well as a voice actor. Mickey Rooney is known worldwide as an actor who played a variety of roles in different film and theatre genres, including Broadway theatre performances, and vaudeville, which is a popular theatrical genre in the US, where a performance is made up of several unrelated acts. Mickey Rooney is perhaps mostly recognized for the role of Andy Hardy, a fictional character who appeared in a film series created by “Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer” studio. The first movie in the series where Rooney appeared as Andy Hardy was “You’re Only Young Once”, which was released in 1937.

Since then, Mickey Rooney has reprised his role of Andy in fourteen more films, with the last movie “Andy Hardy Comes Home” released in 1958. Considered to be among the talented actors at the time, Mickey Rooney has starred in a film that brought him the most public attention, namely “Babes in Arms”. It was this movie that also earned him a Juvenile Academy Award. A famous actor, how rich is Mickey Rooney? According to sources, Mickey Rooney’s net worth is estimated to be $20 thousand. The majority of Mickey Rooney’s wealth came from his appearances in the movies, especially around the 1940s, when he was at the peak of his acting career.

Mickey Rooney was born in 1920, in Brooklyn, New York, to parents who were both vaudevillians. Rooney attended Hollywood Professional School and then went on to further his studies at the Hollywood High School. Rooney’s professional acting career begins with a character of Mickey McGuire, a role for which he was cast to play. From 1927 till 1936, Mickey Rooney portrayed this character in more than 78 comedies. The role of Mickey McGuire was also important in a sense that it inspired Joseph Yule to change his stage name to Mickey Rooney. After Rooney’s success with McGuire, he was soon cast to play Andy Hardy, a role that he would later be mostly known for. Since then, Rooney began receiving other television offers and made his first appearance as a dramatic actor in a 1938 biographical drama “Boys Town”, where he co-starred with Spencer Tracy, and a year later appeared in “Babes in Arms”. It was largely due to these films that Mickey Rooney became a success in the late 1940s. Following this, Mickey Rooney went on to star in “National Velvet” and in 1961 appeared alongside Audrey Hepburn in a famous romantic comedy “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Even though Rooney reached his career peak in 1939 and never really topped his success, he was still a highly respected actor. Rooney was even a main star of his own television series called “The Mickey Rooney Show: Hey, Mulligan”, which aired from 1954 till 1955. Rooney also starred in several Broadway performances and even published a memoir titled “Life is Too Short”. Mickey Rooney passed away in 2014, at the age of 93 due to natural causes.

#Fact
1 Interred at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
2 Mickey Rooney passed away on April 6, 2014, at age 93, nearly 1 year after the death of his longtime friend Esther Williams, who died in June 2013, at age 91. The most coincidental thing is they both started their contracts at MGM.
3 Did not have a successful series until he turned 70.
4 He was known to be a very, social butterfly.
5 His third son, Theodore Michael Rooney, died on July 2, 2016, at age 66, just 2 years after the death of his father.
6 Was the spokesperson for Garden State Life Insurance Company.
7 Mickey Rooney passed away on April 6, 2014, at age 93. Prior to his death, he starred in his last film Night at the Museum 3 (2014), which commemorated to his memory, as was Robin Williams.
8 Mickey Rooney passed away on April 6, 2014, just 4 mos. before Robin Williams had committed suicide. Together, they both starred in the movie: Night at the Museum (2006) and its spin-off flick: Night at the Museum 3 (2014).
9 Surrogate grandson of Richard Ian Cox.
10 Childhood friend of: Alan Hale Jr., Nanette Fabray and William Schallert.
11 Was a compulsive gambler on horse racing.
12 Rooney played George M. Cohan three times, twice in TV specials and touring in the stage musical. "George M!".
13 His acting career spread for 89 years, with his first film being released in 1926 and his final one being set for distribution in 2015.
14 Had a son who attended Walter Reed Jr. High School in North Hollywood, Ca., in the 1960s.

#Quote
1 [2008, on the controversy surrounding his Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) role] Blake Edwards wanted me to do it because he was a comedy director. They hired me to do this overboard, and we had fun doing it... Never in all the more than 40 years after we made it - not one complaint. Every place I've gone in the world people say, 'God, you were so funny.' Asians and Chinese come up to me and say, 'Mickey, you were out of this world.' [Had I known people would get offended] I wouldn't have done it. Those that didn't like it, I forgive them and God bless America, God bless the universe, God bless Japanese, Chinese, Indians, all of them and let's have peace.
2 [observation as a young man on his most famous role] It's funny how a character can grow on a feller. I depend on Andy all the time. When I'm not sure whether I should do a certain thing, I ask myself, "Would Andy do it? And if Andy won't do it, I won't."
3 [In a 1970 David Frost interview] I have nine kids, seven wives, and the American Bar Association to support. I'm a very quiet person, a fellow who believes in the Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule, and bacon, lettuce, and tomato with a lot of mayonnaise.
4 [In his autobiography] Had I been brighter, had the ladies been gentler, had the scotch been weaker, had the gods been kinder, this could have been a one-sentence story: Once upon a time, Mickey Rooney lived happily ever after.
5 When "Sugar Babies" opened, I was the most famous has-been in show business.
6 I was aware, even at age three, that my father had a penchant for going out by himself after a show, then returning at dawn with a nervous grin on his face. I could only guess, from my mother's angry reactions that he was doing something that hurt her very much. She kept talking about my dad's "floozies" - which I took to be another name for "bartender." You see, I thought my dad had a problem with Punch, not with Judy.
7 There was, in fact, a standard studio recipe. Take one young actress, pluck her eyebrows, cap her teeth, shape her hairline, pad as required and throw her into the ring with Andy Hardy. Then wait and see. If the public responded, the starlet became a star.
8 When I was nineteen years old I was the number-one star for two years. When I was forty, nobody wanted me. I couldn't get a job.
9 Hollywood has unfortunately become a memory. It's nothing but a sign on the side of a hill.
10 Sure, I love the chicks. I love 'em all. But when you're nuts about too many, how can a guy settle down to one?
11 I lost $2 at Santa Anita and I've spent $3 million trying to get it back.
12 I never knew anything about anyone being gay in Hollywood when I was working in the studios. Did you know that? They weren't in closets, they were in safes.
13 I don't get caught between lesbians and gays. If you can't say something nice about someone, just shut your mouth.
14 [in 2007] I think the family pictures are what people really want to see - and musicals, of course.
15 If it's immorally wrong, it's not normal. Jesus Christ said, "The effeminate are an abomination to me". Are you aware of that? I don't watch the [Ellen DeGeneres] show. I wish her all kinds of luck. Except that I'm not a fan. But there are a lot of people who aren't fans of Mickey Rooney and you can't please everyone.
16 [on his feud with Ernest Borgnine] All the Oscars in the world can't buy him dignity, class and talent. I don't know why he is famous and why he is a star. Talk about a lucky jerk.
17 I've been through four publics. I've been coming back like a rubber ball for years.
18 All the muddy waters of my life cleared up when I gave myself to Christ.
19 There may be a little snow on the mountain, but there's a lot of fire in the furnace.
20 I just want to be a professional. I couldn't live without acting.
21 [Bill Clinton] was a Rhodes Scholar. Do you know who the scholars were? Marxists!
22 The guys with the power in Hollywood today, the guys with their names above the title, are thieves. They don't make movies, they make deals. Their major function is to cut themselves in for ten per cent of the gross - off the top, of course - which is why they make movies that cost fifty million dollars.
23 I didn't ask to be short. I didn't want to be short. I've tried to pretend that being a short guy didn't matter.
24 [on his lifelong friend and frequent co-star, Judy Garland] Judy turned to drugs because she was in pain and because drugs made her feel good. As one of the MGM kids, she'd been treated for most of her life to magical, instant solutions to everything... She could never accept herself, so she was always on the run.
25 [upon winning his lifetime achievement Oscar, 1983] Tonight, I could even kiss Louis B. Mayer!.
26 I was a 14-year-old boy for 30 years.
27 I don't regret anything I've ever done. I only wish I could have done more.
28 Love wears off too quickly.
29 The audience and I are friends. They allowed me to grow up with them. I've let them down several times. They've let me down several times. But we're all family.
30 You've got to recognize, there will never be another you. It has nothing to do with ego; it happens to be the truth. There will never be another person the same. There'll never be another you. There'll never be another me . . . And there'll never be another show like this!
31 [on his marriages] When I say "I do", the Justice of the Peace replies, "I know, I know". I'm the only man in the world whose marriage license reads, "To Whom it May Concern". But to have been married eight times is not normal. That's only halfway intelligent.
32 People say, "How can you be married eight times?" But I played the hand dealt me the way I was supposed to. I was friendly with most of my ex-wives. My God, there's a Mickey Rooney's Former Wives Marching Band!
33 My partners weren't what we call in horse racing parlance "routers". They were sprinters; they went out of the gate, but then they stopped. They couldn't go the distance.
34 [asked if he would marry all of his eight wives again] Absolutely. I loved every one of them.
35 [at 58 years old] I'm in pretty good shape for the shape I'm in.
