Patrick Swayze Net Worth $40 Million

So how rich was Patrick Swayze? It is estimated that Patrick’s net worth was $40 million. The main source of this sum of money was Patrick’s career as an actor, but his other activities, such as dancing, singing and songwriting, also added to Patrick’s net worth. Although his net worth will not become higher in the future, it is clear that Patrick will not be forgotten and that he is an inspiration for many people all over the world.

There is no surprise that Patrick chose acting and dancing as his career, as his mother was a successful dancer and dance instructor. When Patrick started attending school he became interested in many activities, including football, ballet, acting and even ice skating. Patrick concentrated on improving his dancing skills and soon he began his career as a professional dancer. His first appearance was while working together with “Disney on Parade”. Later he acted in the television show called “Blood Brothers”. In 1983 Patrick received an invitation to act in the movie called “The Outsiders”. After his appearance in this movie, Patrick became more recognized in the movie industry, and of course it added to Patrick’s net worth.

Sadly, his fans will not be able to see him portraying new roles, but it is still important that he will be remembered for his talent and his work.

To talk about Patrick’s personal life, it can be said that he married Lisa Niemi in 1975 and lived with her until his death, although they were childless. Patrick’s life was not easy as he had to go through a lot. Firstly, his father died and later his sister committed suicide. This affected Patrick, but he was able to solve his own problems and continue his career. Sadly, in 2008 Patrick was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and in 2009 he died. Finally, Patrick Swayze was an extraordinary personality, who had many talents. Patrick had a lot of fans all over the world who admired his work and personality. Let’s hope that Patrick will not be forgotten for a long time.

#Quote
1[on shooting Dirty Dancing (1987) with co-star Jennifer Grey] She'd slip into silly moods, forcing us to do scenes over and over. We did have a few moments of friction...she seemed particularly emotional, sometimes bursting into tears if someone criticized her.
2Facing your own mortality is the quickest way possible to find out what you're made of. It strips away all the bull -- and exposes every part of you, your strength, your weaknesses, your sense of self, your soul. It also leads you to confront life's hardest questions.
3[on having terminal cancer] I've had more lifetimes than any 10 people put together, and it's been an amazing ride...So this (dying) is O.K.
4My big regret is the physical damage I've done to my body. I can do almost anything physically and I used to believe I was invincible, breaking bones over and over, playing football, doing gymnastics, diving, ballet, doing my own stunts, kickboxing, staging fights ... It all seems a little stupid to me now.
5Five years is pretty wishful thinking ... two years seems likely if you're going to believe statistics. I want to last until they find a cure, which means I'd better get a fire under it. (January 2009)
6[on accepting a continuing role in the series The Beast (2009)] How do you nurture a positive attitude when all the statistics say you're a dead man? You go to work.
7I'm still fine to work, I haven't changed - oh, I have changed, what am I saying? It's a battle-zone I go through. Chemo, no matter how you cut it, is hell on wheels.
8[on having achieved some success with various anti-cancer treatments] I'm a miracle, dude.
9I have a great deal of faith in faith; if you believe something strongly enough, it becomes true for you. I would like to believe that my father is right here with me in this room and that he's my guardian angel, that there's life after death -- because if there isn't, why are we here? I don't believe that just flesh and bones can contain from the point of view of physics this very real recorded energy inside of us. Whether it's true or not, we need to believe it.
10[in 2004, about his drinking] I made a conscious decision to break away from big films when I got alcohol out of my life. I had been sucked into the blockbuster, box-office mentality and it was destroying my sense of purpose in life. The loneliness of fame was messing with my head. Once you've been famous for a while and told your story, it can sound like a lie. You don't know what's true. It sounds like an article someone wrote rather than the essence of who you are.
11I believe in a higher power. I've studied Eastern philosophies, and I've studied the Koran. We've devalued everything worth believing in. Now we're tearing into religion. A line should be drawn. The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) and The Da Vinci Code (2006) borders on that. I was glued to the book, but afterwards I thought, "Oh my Lord, now we're tearing into God and our faith". Are we going to be turning into a reality show, too? I certainly hope not.
12Good-looking people turn me off. Myself included.
