Ginger Rogers Net Worth $20 Million

Born in Independence, Missouri, Rogers was the only daughter of Lela Emogene and William Eddins McMath, and came from Scottish, English, and Welsh descent. After her birth, her parents immediately broke up and divorced, apparently because her mother refused to deliver her in hospital, after a previous pregnancy that went wrong.

Rogers and her mother moved to Hollywood to live with her grandparents, and for her mother to continue pursuing a career as a scriptwriter. Later on, her mother remarried to John Logan Rogers, whose last name Ginger adopted in her screen name, and moved to Fort Worth, Texas – meanwhile, one of her cousins gave her the nickname Ginger that stuck.

After failing to matriculate from Fort Worth Central High School, Rogers decided to enter the entertainment industry instead. When a travelling vaudeville act visited Fort Worth, the crew needed a stand-in and she got the part by winning a Charleston dance contest. Her early years in vaudeville helped jumpstart her career and also her net worth.

During her touring career, Rogers decided to live and act and stayed in New York City. Her decision paid off in 1929 when she was included in the Broadway play “Top Speed”, and her performance immediately catapulted her to success and also led her to star in another production called “Girl Crazy”. With her success on Broadway, in 1929 Rogers also made her way on to film, starringd in her first short film “Night in the Dormitory”, followed by “Campus Sweethearts” and “A Day of a Man of Affairs”. In 1933, she achieved a breakthrough when she starred in the film “42nd Street”, and soon she was signing with the biggest movie productions elevating her career status and wealth.

Another milestone in Rogers’ career came in 1933 when she partnered with fellow actor and dancer Fred Astaire. Despite being the supporting characters in the movie “Flying Down to Rio”, the two stole the scene with their dance routines and chemistry. Their unbelievable partnership lasted for years, starring in nine films including “The Gay Divorcee”, “Top Hat”, and “Follow the Fleet”.

After her success with Astaire, Rogers also ventured into non-musical films. Her performance in “Stage Door” showed her dramatic prowess, and “Vivacious Lady” with Katharine Hepburn also became a success, but it was in 1941 that her role in “Kitty Foyle” earned her an Academy Award for Best Actress. Other notable films later in her career included “Roxie Hart”, “Primrose Path”, “I’ll Be Seeing You”, and “Tender Comrade” to name a few.

In her final years in the entertainment industry, she also went back to Broadway and even starred in “Hello, Dolly!”, and directed her own off-Broadway musical production entitled “Babes in Arms” at the age of 74. Her long and outstanding career in the entertainment industry established her as a legend and also tremendously increased her net worth.

Aside from acting she also wrote her autobiography book called “Ginger, My Story” in 1991.

In terms of her personal life, Rogers was married five times, firstly to entertainer Jack Pepper from 1929 –’31, then actor Lew Ayres (1934-40), Jack Briggs (1943-49), Jacques Bergerac (1953-57), and director and producer William Marshall was her last husband, who she married in 1961, but they divorced in 1971. In 1995, Rogers died from a heart attack, partly as a resuly of largely ignoring her diabetes problem for many years. Her remains are interred with her mother’s in Chatsworth, California.

1I've made thousands of mistakes, but they've all been stepping stones toward a better concept of life.
2{on Howard Hughes] Howard was one of the best dancers I ever knew, and fascinating to be with. Terribly bright and intelligent. But he was immersed in his work.
3[on Fred Astaire, 1976] I adore the man. I always have adored him. It was the most fortunate thing that ever happened to me, being teamed with Fred: he was everything a little starry-eyed girl from a small town ever dreamed of.
4I believe in living each day as it comes, to the best of my ability. When it's done, I put it away, remembering that there will be a tomorrow to take it's place. If I have any philosophy, that's it. To me it's not a fatalistic attitude.
5Rhythm is born in all of us. To be a desirable dancing partner you don't have to do all the intricate fancy steps that happen to be in vogue. All you have to do is be a good average dancer and anybody who spends the time and effort can accomplish this.
6[on being asked in 1943 what a girl needs to be a movie star] Intelligence, adaptability and talent. And by talent I mean the capacity for hard work. Lots of girls come here with little but good looks. Beauty is a valuable asset, but it is not the whole cheese.
7I think the motion pictures talked themselves out of business when they sold their backlogs [to TV networks]. They sold what they thought were old clothes. It turns out some of them had better material in them than their new ones.
8[speaking in 1975] The were such a pretty time. I know it was a bad time for an awful lot of people, but not for me. I remember the whole atmosphere, the ambiance of the [1930s] with a glow because success was knocking at my door. I got to California in [1932], just in time to do Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933), where I sang "We're In the Money". It was a whole new life for me. I was excited about it. It was happy and beautiful and gay and interesting. I was surrounded by marvelous people, all the top people of our industry.
9It was tough being a woman in the theatrical business in those days.
10You bring out a lot of your own thoughts and attitudes when acting. I think a great deal of it has to do with the inner you. You know, there's nothing damnable about being a strong woman. The world needs strong women. There are a lot of strong women you do not see who are guiding, helping, mothering strong men. They want to remain unseen. It's kind of nice to be able to play a strong woman who is seen.
11I don't care what the critics say. My fabulous mom will give me a good review if nobody else does.
12In everything that I do I learn and try to put it to use. I have learned to go through life not into it. It's like a boat. You mustn't let the water in or you're sunk. Of course, I've made mistakes and I have had failures, but I do not dwell on them because people don't care about garbage. When I make a mistake it's like a bad leaf on a lettuce - I throw it out into the wastebasket.
13I'm most grateful to have had that joyous time in motion pictures. It really was a Golden Age of Hollywood. Pictures were talking, they were singing, they were coloring. It was beginning to blossom out: bud and blossom were both present.
14[on her screen partnership with Fred Astaire] We had fun and it shows. True, we were never bosom buddies off the screen; we were different people with different interests. We were only a couple on film.
15[her explanation for bringing excess luggage to London in 1969 for her year-long stint on stage as "Mame"] I believe in dressing for the occasion. There's a time for sweater, sneakers and Levis and a time for the full-dress jazz. As for the little touches, well, a year is quite a long time and they make one feel at home.
16Even when one is of a certain age to make one's own decisions, there are many times when it is great to be able to go back and talk it over with the people one loves - one's family.
17[1987] It'd be fun to have a chum around, but it's very hard to have a chum unless you're married to him. And I don't believe in today's concept for living with someone unmarried.
18[on working with Katharine Hepburn] She is snippy, you know, which is a shame. She was never on my side.
19The most important thing in anyone's life is to be giving something. The quality I can give is fun, joy and happiness. This is my gift.
20[on her partnership with Fred Astaire] After all, it's not as if we were Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. We did have careers apart from each other.
21Hollywood is like an empty wastebasket.
22When you're happy, you don't count the years.
23[in the early 1930s] I don't know which I like best. I love the applause on the stage. But pictures are so fascinating - you reach many millions through them. And you make more money, too.
24The only way to enjoy anything in this life is to earn it first.
25[1983] They're not going to get my money to see the junk that's made today.
26When two people love each other, they don't look at each other, they look in the same direction.
27My mother told me I was dancing before I was born. She could feel my toes tapping wildly inside her for months.
1In 1986 Fred Astaire recalled "All the girls I ever danced with thought they couldn't do it. So they always cried. All except Ginger. No, no, Ginger never cried.".
2In 1976, when Fred Astaire was asked by British TV interviewer Michael Parkinson on "Parkinson" who his favorite dancing partner was, Astaire answered "Excuse me, I must say Ginger was certainly the one. You know the most effective partner I ever had. Everyone knows. That was a whole other thing what we did...I just want to pay a tribute to Ginger because we did so many pictures together and believe me it was a value to have that girl...she had it. She was just great!".
3Made the cover of Life magazine four times; 8/22/38, 12/9/40, 3/2/42 and 9/5/51.
4Fred Astaire confided in Raymond Rohauer, curator of New York Gallery of Modern Art, "Ginger was brilliantly effective. She made everything work fine for her. Actually she made things very fine for both of us and she deserves most of the credit for our success.".
5Was the 16th actress to receive an Academy Award; she won the Best Actress Oscar for Kitty Foyle (1940) at The 13th Academy Awards on February 27, 1941.
6According to the 1974 book "Holly-Would" Rogers was taught the Charleston by Eddie Foy Jr. and went on the win the championship of Texas when she was only 15.
7Rogers holds the record for actresses at New York's prestigious Rdio City Music Hall with 23 films for a total of 55 weeks.
8Despite being married 5 times, all of her marriages ended under a decade. Her longest marriage was her last, to William Marshall, which lasted 8 years.
9When Ginger Rogers received a Kennedy Center Honor in 1992, Robyn Smith, widow of Fred Astaire, withheld all rights to clips of Rogers' scenes with Astaire, demanding payment. The Kennedy Center refused and Rogers received her honor without the retrospective show.
10Was good friends with actress Maureen O'Hara since the late 1930s.
11Inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians in 2009.
12Was offered the part of Hildy Johnson in His Girl Friday (1940), but she turned it down. As a result Rosalind Russell was cast instead.
13Replaced Judy Garland in the film The Barkleys of Broadway (1949) after Garland was suspended from MGM due to her tardiness.
14She first introduced the song "The Continental" in The Gay Divorcee (1934) and it went on to be the first song that won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
15Turned down Donna Reed's role in It's a Wonderful Life (1946).
16For the "Cheek to Cheek" number in Top Hat (1935), she wanted to wear an elaborate blue dress heavily decked out with ostrich feathers. When director Mark Sandrich and Fred Astaire saw the dress, they knew it would be impractical for the dance. Sandrich suggested that Rogers wear the white gown she had worn performing "Night and Day" in The Gay Divorcee (1934). Rogers walked off the set, finally returning when Sandrich agreed to let her wear the offending blue dress. As there was no time for rehearsals, she wore the blue feathered dress for the first time during filming of the "Cheek to Cheek" number, and as Astaire and Sandrich had feared, feathers started coming off the dress. Astaire later claimed it was like "a chicken being attacked by a coyote". In the final film, some stray feathers can be seen drifting off it. To patch up the rift between them, Astaire presented Rogers with a charm of a gold feather to add to her charm bracelet. This was the origin of Rogers' nickname "Feathers". The shedding feathers episode was recreated to hilarious results in a scene from Easter Parade (1948) in which Astaire danced with a clumsy, comical dancer played by Judy Garland.
17Her great-great-grandfather was a doctor who discovered quinine, the cure for malaria.
18One of the celebrities whose picture Anne Frank placed on the wall of her bedroom in the "Secret Annex" while in hiding during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam, Holland.
19Salary for 1938, $219,500.
20She was a conservative Republican, a proud member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, a Christian Scientist and a vocal supporter of the Hollywood blacklist.
21Has a street named after her in Rancho Mirage, California, her final winter home. Ginger Rogers Road is located in the Mission Hills Golf Course. It crosses Bob Hope Drive, between Gerald Ford Drive and Dinah Shore Drive and 2 blocks from Frank Sinatra Drive.
22In Italy, most of her films were dubbed by either Lidia Simoneschi or Wanda Tettoni. She was occasionally dubbed by Andreina Pagnani; Dhia Cristiani; Rosetta Calavetta and Giovanna Scotto.
23During the last years of her life she retired in Oregon and bought a ranch in the Medford area because she liked the climate. She donated money to the community and funded the Craterian Ginger Rogers Theater in downtown Medford, which was named after her.
24She was of Welsh and Scottish heritage.
25A distant cousin of Lucille Ball, according to Lucie Arnaz.
26She and Fred Astaire acted in 10 movies together: The Barkleys of Broadway (1949), Carefree (1938), Flying Down to Rio (1933), Follow the Fleet (1936), The Gay Divorcee (1934), Roberta (1935), Shall We Dance (1937), The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle (1939), Swing Time (1936) and Top Hat (1935)
27Is one of the many movie stars mentioned in Madonna's song "Vogue"
28Was named #14 Actress on The AFI 50 Greatest Screen Legends
29Her tied-to-the-hip relationship with her mother, Lela E. Rogers, proved eternal. They're buried side by side at Oakwood Memorial Park. The grave of Ginger's screen partner, Fred Astaire, is just yards away.
30In a 1991 TV interview when asked why the Fred Astaire / Rogers union wasn't known as "Ginger & Fred" rather than "Fred & Ginger" (as Ginger had been in films longer), she replied, "It's a man's world".
31Her first teaming with Fred Astaire, Flying Down to Rio (1933), was her 20th film appearance but only Astaire's second.
32Turned down lead roles in To Each His Own (1946) and The Snake Pit (1948). Both of these roles went on to be played to great acclaim by Olivia de Havilland. She also turned down Barbara Stanwyck's role in "Ball of Fire.".
33Was a life-long Republican.
34First cousin, once removed, of Christopher Cerf and Jonathan Cerf.
35Was asked to replace Judy Garland in both Harlow (1965) and Valley of the Dolls (1967). She turned down "Dolls" because she hated the script; she did, however, accept Harlow (1965). She played Jean Harlow's mother and, unlike the movie, garnered good reviews. The film was made in only eight days.
36Related to Random House publisher and What's My Line? (1950) panelist Bennett Cerf through marriage, when he married Ginger's cousin Phyllis Fraser.
37Was badly affected by illness in her last years after suffering two strokes that had left her wheelchair-bound and visibly overweight, while her voice had become a shrunken rasp.
38She made her final public appearance on 3/18/95 (just five weeks before her death) when she received the Women's International Center (WIC) Living Legacy Award.
39Always the outdoor sporty type, she was a near-champion tennis player, a topline shot and loved going fishing.
40The well-known quote often attributed to her--"My first picture was [Kitty Foyle (1940)]. It was my mother who made all those films with Fred Astaire"--was actually fabricated for a 1966 article in "Films In Review".
41Author Graham Greene always said he would have liked Ginger to play the role of Aunt Augusta in the film version of his novel "Travels With My Aunt". When the film Travels with My Aunt (1972) was made in 1972 the role was played by Maggie Smith.
