She then moved to New York City to pursue a career in acting, however, in 2005 she became a student again, earning her MA in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica.

Beginning in theater, Taylor appeared in a number of plays during the 60s, 70s and 80s, both o and off-Broadway. She had starring roles in “Butley”, “The Cocktail Hour”, “Moose Murders” and “Breakfast with Less and Bess”.

Her first significant television role was in the long-running soap opera “The Edge of Night”, in which she played the evil Denise Cavanaugh. All contributed to her growing net worth.

In 1982 Taylor was cast in the comedy sitcom “Bosom Buddies” starring Tom Hanks, as his demanding boss Ruth Danbar; this was her breakthrough role. Although the series lasted only for two seasons, it paved Taylor’s way to many other series and films too. Her film roles of the time were small parts in projects like “Romancing the Stone”, “Key Exchange”, “Perry Mason Returns”, “The Jewel of the Nile” and “She’s Having a Baby”. All added to her net worth.

In early 90s the actress moved to California, and became part of the TV series “The Powers That Be”, playing the senator’s wife Margaret Powers, the role which brought her EW’s Cool Actress award.

In the meantime, she appeared in numerous films, including “Betrayal of Trust”, The Favor”, “To Die For”, “Steal Big Steal Little”, “George of the Jungle”, “My Last Love”, “The Truman Show” and many others.

In 1998 Taylor was cast as Judge Roberta Kittleson in the legal drama “The Practice”, which focused on Boston’s law company and its partners and associates. The role brought her additional fame as well as the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress, and significantly improved her wealth. She also made a cross-over appearance in the same role in the popular “Ally McBeal” series.

As the 2000s came, Taylor tackled a mix of television and film work, appearing in films such as “Happy Accidents”, “The Day Reagan Was Shot”, Legally Blonde, “Home Room”, “Spy Kids 2″ and Spy Kids 3”. In 2003 she was cast in the CBS hit television sitcom “Two and a Half Men”, as Evelyn Harper, Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer’s entertainingly awful mother. The series, which lasted until 2015, enjoyed an astonishing popularity with audiences and achieved huge audience success, and considerably adding to Taylor’s net worth.

Meanwhile, she appeared in other series such as “The L World”, “Monk” and “Electric City”, and in the films “Intent”, “D.E.B.S.”, “The Wedding Date”, “Baby Mama” and “The Chosen One”. In 2009 Taylor wrote and starred in a solo play called “Ann”, based on the life of the late Texas Governor Ann Richards, which brought her a nomination for the Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in a Play.

During her long career, Taylor has performed in numerous stage productions, while also establishing herself as a true star in both big and small screen projects, which enabled her to amass a considerable personal fortune.
