Phyllis Smith Net Worth $7 Million

To begin with, she was raised in Lemay, Missouri, and graduated from the University of Missouri, St. Louis in 1972 with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. In the 1970s and 1980s, she worked as a dancer and cheerleader for the American Football team the St. Louis Cardinals. Moreover, she performed as a burlesque artist, but she was forced to leave dance after suffering a knee injury.

Later, Smith later worked as a casting assistant in Hollywood, not expecting to become an actress. In this context, in 2005 she was offered the role of Phyllis Lapin in the series “The Office”, a character created specifically for her – a saleswoman with a soft voice who tends to disagree with her boss, Michael Scott. Prior to this, she had landed several episodic roles, as in the television series “Arrested Development” (2005), and another in the feature film “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” (2005). In 2006, she appeared in an episode of the comedy series “The Office: The Accountants” which was a spin-off of “The Office”, and in the summer of 2008, Smith was presented with the cast of “The Office” on the TV show “Celebrity Family Feud”. All added to her net worth.

In 2011, Phyllis was cast as a main in the comedy film “Butter” (2011) directed by Jim Field Smith. Then, Smith played a prominent role in the movie “Bad Teacher” (2011) starring with Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel; even though reviews of the film were mixed, the box office grossed $216.2 million, so increasing the net worth of the cast including Phyllis Smith. The same year she was seen in the comedy film directed by Mike Mitchell – “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked” (2011). In 2013, she created a small role in the sitcom “Trophy Wife” aired on ABC, and the following year appeared in a single episode of the sitcom “The Middle” created by Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline.

Recently, Phyllis voiced Sadness in the computer animated adventure film “Inside Out” (2015) by Pete Docter, for which she won the Annie Award for Voice Acting in a Feature Production. Moreover, she voiced the same character in the video game “Disney Infinity 3.0” (2015). To conclude, all the above mentioned roles have added significant sums to the size of Smith net worth.

Finally, in the personal life of the actress, Smith keeps her personal life private and doesn’t reveal any facts, or give interviews.

Quotes
