Yvette was born to Carmen Montemayor and René Mimieux, and apart from American is also of Mexican and French ancestry. Prior to acting, Yvette worked as a model, and in 1957 was chosen by the “King of Rock and Roll” – Elvis Presley – as one of the four finalists at Los Angeles’ beauty pageant. She debuted as an actress in the support role of Ricky in one episode of the “Yancy Derringer” TV series. These involvements provided the basis for Yvette Mimieux’s net worth.

However, the real breakthrough in Yvette’s acting career occurred in 1960 when she was cast for the role of primitive cavewoman Weena in George Pal’s apocalyptic Sci-Fi movie “The Time Machine”, which won an Academy Award in 1961. Subsequently, Yvette was cast for the role of teenage girl Melanie Tolman in the 1960 comedy movie “Where the Boys Are”. This was followed by an appearance in the drama movie “Platinum High School”, for which she was honored with a Golden Globe Award nomination. All these ventures helped Yvette Mimieux to establish herself as a young and prominent actress, as well as to add a sum to her net worth.

For her performance in two episodes of the “Dr. Kildare” TV series in 1964, Yvette was rewarded with another nomination for a Golden Globe. In 1969 she starred opposing Albert Finney in Robert Salin’s critically acclaimed drama “The Picasso Summer”, while in 1970 she was cast for a notable role of Vanessa Smith, appearing in the 12 episodes of “The Most Deadly Game” TV series, for which she was also nominated for a Golden Globe. It is certain that all these roles and appearances made a huge impact on Yvette Mimieux’s wealth.

Through the rest of the 1970s and the 1980s, Yvette managed to maintain a continuous streak of acting engagements in more or less commercially successful movies and TV projects, of which the most memorable were “The Legend of Valentino” (1975), “The Black Hole” (1979) and her production debut, 1984 TV movie “Obsessive Love”. She also starred in the mid-1980s TV series “Berrenger’s” and “The Love Boat”. Yvette Mimieux’s last acting engagement and her 50th acting credit was her appearance in the 1992 TV drama movie “Lady Boss”, after which she retired from acting. Doubtlessly, all of these achievements have helped Yvette Mimieux to build a successful acting career during which she gathered an impressive amount of money.

Since her retirement from acting, Yvette Mimieux has made some efforts towards a real estate business, which has further increased the total of her net worth.

When it comes to her personal life, Yvette has married twice – between 1972 and 1985, she was married to a film producer and director Stanley Donen, while since 1986 she has been married to the founder of Oakwood Worldwide Howard F. Ruby with whom she owns and operates Beach Hacienda vacation resort in Mexico.
