Steven Seagal Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Steven Frederic Seagal, who is better known in show business as just Steven Seagal, is a very well-known martial artist and an American actor. His net worth is estimated to be $20 million. Most of his wealth can be attributed to his successful career as an actor, since he is one the greatest stars of action movies in the 90s.

Steven Seagal was born on the 10th of April in 1952 in his hometown Lansing, Michigan. He was born to a family of a mathematics teacher and medical technician. Steven moved to Japan at the age of 17 and only came back to the United States after 15 years. It was in Japan that Seagal first started practicing aikido and Shito-ryu. Upon returning to the United States Steven Seagal opened a dojo. The second dojo that he opened was in Burbank while the first one was in New Mexico.

Steven Seagal Net Worth $20 Million

Seagal became a producer by making his first film called Above the Law, released in 1987. He later went on and came up with three other films, which made Steven a Hollywood star. His biggest movie was called Under the Siege released in 1992. The film made Steven rich because it earned about $156 million internationally. Steven’s directorial debut could be considered to have been the movie called On Deadly Ground. In this very well-known 1994 movie Steven explored such themes as spirituality and environmental issues. Another one of Steven’s big hits was the 2001 movie called Exit Wounds. It was so successful that it grossed over $80 million dollars worldwide. Although most action and martial arts movies fans don’t know this interesting trivia fact, Steven Seagal is a guitarist and even plays in a band, and has even released two albums.

More recently, Steven has been busy with his reality television show called Steven Seagal: Lawman. Another interesting fact is that Steven Seagal is also a reserve deputy sheriff. His extensive training in martial arts comes in handy, as Steven also has a good knowledge of karate, kendo and judo. He is considered to be the first so-called Westerner to have opened a school that teaches martial arts in Japan.

Speaking about his personal life, Steven Seagal has been married once, to actress Kelly LeBrock. They are divorced now. The couple met while Steven was working as her bodyguard when he was younger, and as he started making money while he was struggling to open his first dojo. Since Steven needed stable income, he was worked as a bodyguard for various celebrities. He became a celebrity himself by asking one of his clients, Michael Ovitz, for help. Michael gave Steven contacts of someone famous Hollywood personalities, and immediately after making a call Steven had a deal for his first martial arts movie.

Currently Steven Seagal is on tour with his band. The band has covered many songs and has performed with such stars as Tony Rebel and even Stevie Wonder.

#Quote
1 [on rumors that he is difficult to work with] I think if I'm with professional people, I'm easy to work with. But it's real hard for me if I have to work with somebody who doesn't know what they're doing. Because my name and my reputation are on the line.
2 False FBI accusations fueled thousands of articles saying that I terrorize journalists and associate with the Mafia . . . these kinds of inflammatory allegations scare studio heads and independent producers -- and kill careers.
3 Action films are great, but an action film that has characters that are compelling and a story that people can care about is something even better. We love to see action heroes that are vulnerable, that are sensitive, that are family people, that are accessible.
4 The secret is not to act, but to be.
5 [on actors who become political leaders] [Ronald Reagan] was a pretty good one, but I think it really depends on the situation.
6 [on President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo of the Philippines] I've never met her, but my impression of her is that she's very straight, sincere, honest, really talented president, and I hope she gets re-elected.
7 [on his feelings regarding past movies] Hollywood is a mercurial place where people are sort of . . . a victim of their environment and how the environment changes. Movies that would be timely now, ten years from now would be passé and nobody would be interested in the subjects. All the movies that I have done I have not been in control of. Sometimes there is a contractual situation where you go to the studio and they kind of tell you which ones they want you to do. Be that as it may, I have also been lucky in the sense that I have been able to make environmentally conscientious movies as well as politically conscientious movies. Above the Law (1988) was a politically conscientious movie. On Deadly Ground (1994) was environmentally conscientious, so I want to keep making movies like that which are more geared with a certain entertainment value but also bring people forward into contemplation.
8 [on what he thinks are the most important lessons that one should strive to live by in Aikido] Try to find the path of least resistance and use it without harming others. Live with integrity and morality, not only with people but with all beings.
9 I am hoping that I can be known as a great writer and actor some day, rather than a sex symbol.
