Patricia Richardson is a daughter of Laurence Baxter Richardson and Mary Elizabeth, and she has three sisters. She grew up in Maryland where she went to the Holton-Arms School before moving to Dallas, Texas to continue her education at The Hockaday School. In 1972, Richardson graduated from Southern Methodist University, and started working in theatre before launching her on-screen career in 1980.
Richardson had her debut in Lewis Jackson’s horror called “Christmas Evil” in 1980, and then she appeared in an episode of “Love, Sidney” (1981), and in eight episodes of “Double Trouble” (1984). In the mid-‘80s, Patricia had brief roles in numerous films and series including “C.H.U.D.” (1984), “Kate & Allie” (1985), “Spenser: For Hire” (1986), and “The Equalizer” (1986-1987). She appeared in “The Cosby Show” in 1987, and later in “Hands of a Stranger” (1987) with Armand Assante, and in the series “Eisenhower & Lutz” (1988) and “FM” (1989-1990). Richardson also played in such movies as “Parent Trap III” (1989), “Lost Angels” (1989) with Donald Sutherland, and “In Country” (1989) starring Bruce Willis, increasing her net worth by a large margin.

In 1991, Patricia got a leading role in the sitcom “Home Improvement”, playing Jill Taylor in 202 episodes until 1999, which gained her a lot of popularity and improved her net worth significantly. Although she was quite busy while filming the series, Richardson managed to secure a few other roles, in such movies as “Sophie & the Moonhanger” (1996), “Undue Influence” (1996) with Brian Dennehy, and in Victor Nunez’s Oscar-nominated drama called “Ulee’s Gold” (1997) starring Peter Fonda, which also added to her net worth.

In the early 2000’s, Patricia played Gladys Baker in the mini-series “Blonde” (2001), starred in “Viva Las Nowhere” (2001) alongside David Stern and James Caan, and portrayed Dr. Andy Campbell in 59 episodes of “Strong Medicine” (2002-2005). Richardson then appeared in nine episodes of the popular series “The West Wing” (2005-2006), and ended the decade with the movies “California Dreaming” (2007) and “Lost Dream” (2009).

Lately, Richardson has had parts in such TV movies as “The Jensen Project” (2010), “Bringing Ashley Home” (2011), “Smart Cookies” (2012), “Chance at Romance” (2013), and “Snow Bride” (2013). Most recently, Patricia again teamed up with Tim Allen in two episodes of “Last Man Standing” (2015-2016), and is currently filming the musical called “Waiting in the Wings: Still Waiting” which is in post-production.

Regarding her personal life, Patricia Richardson was married to the actor Ray Baker from 1982 to 1995 and has three children with him. She had a long-term relationship with former psychologist Dr. Mark Cline, and they lived together in her Los Angeles residence, but apparently they are not living together now.

1Having a hairstyle that features sharp, sassy bangs
1I've had so many horrible things happen in my life since I did 'Home Improvement' that it's worried me about doing comedy because - how do I say this - I'm a much darker person than I was.
2You go where you think it's good for your work and your soul to go. I need to go someplace where I am reminded about why I wanted to act in the first place, and for me, that's the theater.
3Television is a real woman's medium... but what's disturbing is, still even in television, women have so little to do with what's going on behind the scenes.
4Getting married and then having children just centered me and grounded my values. It was like a whole new world. It started happening in New York with a little play called Cruise Control, where I relaxed, and then I kept getting work in Hollywood till this series happened.
5Instead of yelling and spanking, which don't work anyway, I believe in finding creative ways to keep their attention - turning things into a game, for instance. And, when they do something good, positive reinforcement and praise.
6I have born-again Christians in my family, and they are completely against abortion... Everybody's got to stop being afraid of it real soon. Who's going to do it if a woman's network doesn't? People are going to be dying.
7I'd like us to deliver a little message to all the men still out there who think it's the '50s, and coming home simply means watching television with a beer.
8The truth is, I've been going pretty much nuts all year. I constantly have to fight being scattered. I feel like I'm on automatic pilot from fatigue. The hardest thing is trying to be present, living for the moment, for everybody in the family.
9They see me as being this Super Mom on TV who also can more than handle a difficult husband, and they assume I'm going to be just full of wisdom as a mother and wife myself.
10Tim on the show does a lot of that posturing, of course, and feels sort of threatened by women. But even at that, you do see him cooking, and ultimately he's a good father because he spends a lot of time with the boys.
11You have to be the parent; you can't be their friend.
12When you're a woman with a certain amount of fame and money, you are never certain what someone's motives are.
13I really was about to pass out during my entire wedding. I just didn't know if I could marry anybody.
14I know it's a lot harder for women who don't have enough help, but the truth is, no matter how much money you have, if you want to stay involved with your children and don't want to lose being a primary parent to them, you're still in the game.
15I don't understand that, because I think that what people like most about the show is that they recognize themselves in the characters and their problems, so the more believable the family is, the more we can draw the audience in.
16I had been a real problem child, but once I got into acting, my parents never had any more trouble with me because all of that energy was directed in a positive way.
17I didn't want to do comedy again. It is way harder when you are doing comedy. You can't just concentrate on the character and the plot. In comedy, the writers, instead of obsessing about character and plot, obsess about the jokes.
18It was extremely hard going from being a parent of one to a parent of three, because now all these instant decisions have to be made about how you balance out the time and attention between them.
19Losing their reproductive rights is the first step to how women live in Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan.
20But then my mother, who's a very selfless, stoic person from a family of Marines, would tell us that what was good for our father was good for us - he would make more money; therefore, we'd be able to get better educations.
21Part of the whole L.A. mentality that nothing really matters unless it's a success... is such a shallow and dangerous attitude to have.
22I still get the kids to the doctor and dentist and plan their play dates and buy their clothes.
23People who meet me think of Jill and transfer her strong qualities to me.
24I curse too much. I really do. I have a horrible cursing mouth.
25Good actresses can often accomplish miracles, and it is possible to be someone you've never been or will be. But in a sitcom, there's no time.
26I live in such a sweet world in the world of 'Home Improvement' that I tend to be drawn to stuff that's really on the other end of the spectrum entirely.
27I kind of feel like people like to dump on 'Home Improvement,' and I don't know why.
28I always hated perfect TV moms because I always thought that was unrealistic.
