Lucille Ball Wiki Biography

Lucille Ball, whose full name is Lucille Desiree Ball, was born in 1911, in California. Lucille was a well known actress, model and comedian, perhaps best known for for her roles in such shows as “Life with Lucy”, “The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour”, “Here’s Lucy”, “I Love Lucy” and others. Unfortunately, Ball died in 1989 at age 77. During her career Lucille won an Emmy Award, Film Crystal Award, Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award and many others. It is really sad that the movie industry lost this incredibly talented actress. What is more, Ball also had her own television studio, called “Desilu”. Another proof that Lucille Ball was acclaimed and one of the most successful actresses is the fact that she even received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Nowadays Lucille is still remembered, and is considered to be one of the all-time bests.

So how rich was Lucille Ball? Sources now estimate that Ball’s net worth was $40 million. The main source of this sum money was her career as an actress and her roles in different successful shows and movies. As Lucille Ball was a very successful actress, there is no surprise that she earned a lot during her career.

When Lucille was a teenager she started showing an interest in acting and went to study at the John Murray Anderson School for the Dramatic Arts. Although her experience was not that great, she was able to find work as a model. This was also the time when Ball’s net worth began growing. Soon Lucille started appearing in different television shows and movies. Some of them include “Room Service”, “Three Little Pigskins”, “Roman Scandals”, “Top Hat”, “Follow the Fleet” and others. These appearances, of course, added a lot to Lucille Ball’s net worth. In 1938 Lucille became a part of the show called “The Wonder Show”. This also added to Ball’s net worth. In 1948 Lucille began working on the show called “I Love Lucy”. This show soon became very popular among the viewers. In addition to the success of “I Love Lucy”, Ball’s television show also produced many successful shows such as “Star Trek”, “The Untouchables”, “Mission: Impossible”. It is clear that these productions made Lucille Ball’s net worth grow. Later Ball continued working on many popular shows until she died in 1989.

While talking about Ball’s personal life, it can be said that she was married twice. Her first marriage was with Desi Arnaz, but they divorced in 1960. After a year Lucille married Gary Morton. Ball had two children.

Finally, it can be said that Lucille Ball was one of the most successful and famous actresses in the industry, and is still remembered now as one of the best actresses. Contemporary actors admire her work and are also influenced by it. It is good that the memory of Lucille Ball will remain for a long time.

Lucille Ball Quotes

  • [on Desi Arnaz] He did make me happy, and I really want people to know that.
  • I’m not sure that I want to be without some lack of confidence. If you are too sure of yourself, you don’t grow. You may feel confident in some things, but other fields come up as a challenge. And if you don’t anticipate trouble, you will be in trouble.
  • [on Desi Arnaz] Life with Desi is crazy and exciting, but our love is deep and changeless.
  • I knew there was nobody in the world for me but Desi. We may have our ups and downs just as many people have. I would rather quarrel and make up with him more than anyone else in the world.
  • If you don’t believe he’s a great producer, I got two little Arnaz’s at home to prove it.
  • I hate failure. And that divorce was the number one failure in my eyes. Desi and I have never been the same since.
  • It’s so hard to believe he is gone. I’m the only one left now. I remember the very last time I spoke with him. It was November 30th, our anniversary and he was in Del Mar with Lucie. He was very weak. Lucie held the phone up to his ear, and we said I love you over and over again to each other. On December 2nd, 1986 I was in the car coming home from taping an episode of Password when I heard Desi died. I could not stop crying. I felt lost, and like my own life had come to some kind of end. Lucie arranged the funeral and Danny Thomas gave the eulogy. It was funny and touching, but so very hard for me to sit through. With Desi’s passing I lost my youth, my great success and the only man I ever wanted to be father of my children. Besides Dede, Fred & Cleo, he was the one person who had been in my life the longest and made the greatest impact. I didn’t want to even consider what my life would’ve been without him.
  • Yet I sensed in Desi a great need. Beneath the dazzling charm was a homeless boy who had no one to care for him, worry about him, love him. And I wanted him and only him as the father of my children.
  • In many ways, marrying Desi was one of the boldest things I ever did. I had always gone with older men. I had also achieved some kind of stability in Hollywood, and Desi with his beautiful girls and good times seemed headed in another direction.
  • [on Hollywood] When they say no, you hear yes. Someone says we can’t do this movie, hug them and say thank you for believing in me.
  • [on Arnold Schwarzenegger] I take full credit for this man. He’s going to become a big star.
  • I’m grateful for what motion pictures did for me even though, except for on or two pictures, I’ve never done any I liked.
  • [About her drama school experience in 1926] I was a tongue-tied teenager spellbound by the schools star pupil – Bette Davis.
  • I died my hair this crazy red to bid for attention. It has become a trademark and I’ve got to keep it this way.
  • Life takes guts.
  • [on Vivian Vance] I find that now I usually spend my time looking at Viv. Viv was sensational. And back then, there were things I had to do-I was in the projection room for some reason, and I just couldn’t concentrate on it. But now I can. And I enjoy every move that Viv made. She was something.
  • Give yourself first and everything else will fall into line.
  • [About her friend Maureen O’Hara] Maureen O’Hara is one of the people I love the most out all the people I know.
  • I have an everyday religion that works for me. Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line.
  • [Defending her “singing” performance in the film Mame (1974)] Mame stayed up all night and drank champagne! What did you expect her to sound like? Julie Andrews?
  • [on Buster Keaton] He taught me most of what I know about timing, how to fall and how to handle props and animals.
  • [on Julie Andrews] I mean, you in Britain have some of the best comediennes. Julie Andrews is a comedienne — oh yes she is!
  • You were taken in charge and trained. They have none of that today any place. I regret the passing of the studio system. I was very appreciative of it because I had no talent. Believe me. What could I do? I couldn’t dance. I couldn’t sing. I could talk. I could barely walk. I had no flair. I wasn’t a beauty, that’s for sure.
  • [on Audrey Hepburn] She’s a tomboy and a fine comedienne. You’d never think of her being able to do my type of comedy. But she can. She has great energy, frail as she looks. But, well, she’s so beautiful, so ethereal, it would be sacrilege to put her through it.
  • [on Bob Hope] You spell Bob Hope C-L-A-S-S.
  • [on Liza Minnelli] She’s a great trouper, Liza, I wish I had her talent. If anybody’s going to take over from me, it’s her. She’s got a mind like a trip hammer and huge vitality. She’s great.
  • [About Edith Head]: Edie knew the truth about all of us. She knew who had flat fannies and who didn’t — but she never told.
  • Desi (Desi Arnaz) was the great love of my life. I will miss him until the day I die.
  • [About her meeting Desi Arnaz for the first time]: It wasn’t love at first sight. It took a full five minutes.
  • In life, all good things come hard, but wisdom is the hardest to come by.
  • A man who correctly guesses a woman’s age may be smart, but he’s not very bright.
  • I’d rather regret the things that I have done than the things that I have not.
  • Once in his life, every man is entitled to fall madly in love with a gorgeous redhead.
  • I’m not funny. What I am is brave.
  • The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
  • I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it, and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: hard work and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t.
  • One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore faith in yourself.
  • I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can do. In fact, that’s good taste.
