Patty was raised in a big family with four sisters. She was a student at Crystal Springs School for Girls and the Santa Catalina School. Even though she was wealthy and well known, her parents did not take actions to assure the security of the young woman.

Being 19 years old Patty lived in her apartment in Berkeley, California, USA from where she was kidnapped in 1974. Unconscious and beaten, she was taken out, although during the kidnapping several gunshots were heard. The responsibility was admitted by a vanguard army called the Symbionese Liberation Army. The gang kidnapped the girl with the purpose of obtaining a ransom from her wealthy father. Nevertheless, the events turned out in an unexpected way. After two months spent together with kidnappers, Hearst announced through the sources of mass/media that she had become a member of the Symbionese Liberation Army. Later, her membership was approved by her actions, to be precise, she participated in robberies, as well as demanding and received $2 million ransom from her father. As Hearst later testified, she was forced to become a member of the Symbionese Liberation Army, she was forced to commit crimes, otherwise she was threatened with death. In addition to this, the leaders of the above mentioned army wanted to teach her a lesson about sexual freedom, and as a result she was raped several times by DeFreeze and William Wolfe.

Meanwhile, Patty Hearst was a common criminal to the rest of the world. She robbed banks using guns and other explosive devises, hijacked cars and killed people. More than a year and a half was spent with the Symbionese Liberation Army and until caught by FBI. Patty Hearst was sentenced to 35 years in prison. However, she was released after two years due to President Jimmy Carter’s commutation of the term. Her case generated wide public interest especially the fact that the victim apparently turned into a criminal. Many psychological studies have been done on the above mentioned topic. All of them have been brought together in one term – Stockholm syndrome.

In 1981, Patty Hearst published a memoir book entitled “Every Secret Thing”. Later, she worked with the director John Waters, and landed roles in the films “Cry-Baby” (1990), “Serial Mom” (1994), “Pecker” (1998), “Cecil B. Demented” (2000) and “A Dirty Shame” (2004).

In 1979, Hearst married Bernard Shaw and they lived together until his death in 2013. The family has two daughters.
