Sissy Spacek Net Worth $15 million

At a young age, Elizabeth was often called by her brothers as Sissy, and it would eventually lead to her using that as her stage name. Her brother died from leukemia during 1967, and the experience helped her to become strong and fearless when it comes to her acting career.

Sissy started her career as a photo model for Ford Models, and as an extra. She appeared in the film “Trash” but would be first credited for a part in “Prime Cut”, in which she portrayed a girl sold as a sex slave. She then found opportunities to appear in “The Waltons” before starring in the hit film “Badlands”. After starring in “Carrie” she was nominated for an Academy Award, which together would gain her international recognition. She then performed a few small roles, and tried her hand at independent films including “3 Women” and “Eraserhead”. In 1980, she starred in “Coal Miner’s Daughter” and her performance led to an Oscar win. She also started to gain popularity for her singing skills, being nominated for a Grammy for her help in the soundtrack of “Coal Miner’s Daughter”, and this led to her creating the album “Hangin’ Up My Heart”, although it only had one hit single – “Lonely But Only for You”. She continued with films such as “Heart Beat”, which received mixed reviews, and in the 1980s, she appeared with Mel Gibson in “The River” and also worked with Diane Keaton in “Crimes of the Heart”. Her net worth rose steadily though.

She took a break from acting for a while, and then resurfaced in the 1990s, appearing in “JFK”. She also appeared in more comedies, including “The Grass Harp”, and then as Brendan Fraser’s mother in “Blast From the Past”. In 2001, she had another Academy Award nomination for her performance in “In the Bedroom”, receiving many positive reviews for her performance, and winning numerous awards including a Golden Globe and New York Film Critics Circle Award. She then starred in “Nine Lives”, “Pictures of Hollis Woods” and even narrated an audio book for the “Carrie” novel.

In 2012, she released a memoir entitled “My Extraordinary Ordinary Life”, and it received great reviews from various critics.

For her personal life, it is known that she married art director Jack Fish in 1974, after they met on the set of “Badlands”. She also appeared in his films “Violets Are Blue” and “Raggedy Man”. They have two daughters, one of whom is actress Schuyler Fisk. Sissy has also been well known for keeping out of the eye of tabloids, maintaining a low private profile.

Quotes

#Quote
1When I started out in independent films in the early 70s, we did everything for the love of art. It wasn't about money and stardom. That was what we were reacting against. You'd die before you'd be bought.
2There's a real danger in trying to stay king of the mountain. You stop taking risks, you stop being as creative, because you're trying to maintain a position. Apart from anything else that really takes the fun out of it.
3My cousin, Rip Torn, persuaded me not to change my name. You shouldn't change what you are in the search for success.
4[on why she did not want to appear in The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999)] I asked if they could use some backflashes instead. I enjoyed the sequel, but hated my role in the first film. I was awful.
5[Parade magazine, April 1, 2001] I had a dozen years to act before starting a family then found that motherhood dwarfed everything else. Once or twice a year, I take a project that appeals to me for its redeeming social value.
6[on her daughter Schuyler Fisk becoming an actress] The business has been good to me. I would be a hypocrite if I tried to convince her not to do this.
