Hayley Mills Net Worth $5 Million

To begin with, Mills is the daughter of the noted actor Sir John Mills and the screenwriter Mary Hayley Bell, and the younger sister of Juliet Mills. Although her father and mother were already in the film industry, Hayley actually got her first film role at the age of 12 because she was discovered by J. Lee Thompson, playing the lead role in the acclaimed film “Tiger Bay” (1959), which actually had to be played by a boy. Lillian Disney saw her and invited Hayley to then play the title role in the film “Pollyanna” (1960). For her role in the above mentioned film, Mills was given a special Oscar as well as winning Laurel and Golden Globe Awards. Soon, she was cast in “The Parent Trap” (1961), in which she played the double role twins in the film which was also a great success, and she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. Her net worth was well established.

This start subsequently allowed Mills to be regularly seen in Disney movies, and consequently she was nominated for prestigious awards for her roles in the films “Whistle Down the Wind” (1962) and “Summer Magic” (1964), and she soon became the most popular child star. However, the Disney company decided not to renew her contract in 1966, but Mills then landed a main role in the comedy film “The Trouble with Angels” by Ida Lupino, and afterwards Hayley moved back to England for an adult role in comedy drama “The Family Way” (1966) directed by Roy Boulting – in one scene audience was able to see her bare buttocks, which caused some controversy; experts and critics prematurely concluded that the actress’ career was damaged, as she then starred in several films including the psychological thriller film “Twisted Nerve” (1968) directed by Roy Boulting, the comedy film “Take a Girl Like You” (1970) directed by Jonathan Miller, the horror and crime film “Endless Night” (1972) directed by Sidney Gilliat and others.

In 1987, she starred in youth series “Good Morning, Miss Bliss” broadcast on the Disney Channel, although the series were cancelled after only thirteen episodes. In 1990 she decided to quit acting, although having established significant net worth. In recent years, she returned briefly for some roles in British movies, but has also appeared on stage, including touring Australia in “Legands!”.

Finally, in the personal life of the actress, the Mills met the director Roy Boulting at the age of 20 and he 30 years her senior. They celebrated their wedding in 1971, and Mills had their son Crispian (born in 1973), who became leader of the rock band Kula Shaker. After her divorce from Boulting (1977), Mills had a relationship with the British actor Leigh Lawson from 1975 to 1984, with whom she had another son, Jason (born in 1976). She has been in partnership with Indian-American actor Firdous Bamji since 1987. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, but after surgery and alternative treatment is now in full remission.
