American singer and actress,Annette Joanne Funicello has an estimated net worth of $15 million.
The “sweetheart” of TV’s The Mickey Mouse Club, the American entertainer Annette Funicello began performing at age 10. The Disney sensed that Funicello had star quality, building several musical numbers around her on The Mickey Mouse Club and fashioning her own Club show-within-a-show miniseries, appropriately titled “Annette.” Funicello’s post-Mickey Mouse career was far more successful than that of many of her fellow Mouseketeers–and the reasons cannot be charged up to looks alone. She also was guest-starred on the Disney TV series Zorro and Wonderful World of Color, and was given sizeable roles in such Disney theatrical features as The Shaggy Dog and Babes in Toyland.
While still under contract to Disney, Funicello began appearing in American-International’s Beach Party series, usually co-starring with Frankie Avalon. Though these films were distinguished by undulating, bikinied females, Walt Disney decreed that Funicello never be involved in any “suggestive” sequences–nor were her two-piece bathing suits permitted to uncover her navel.
In recent years, Funicello has been struggling against the ravages of multiple sclerosis; her courage and high spirits in the face of intense pain and decreasing mobility have been inspirational, as well as beneficial in helping to raise funds for further research of degenerative diseases.In 1994, Annette Funicello published her autobiography, the tone of which perfectly reflected the actress herself: discreet, ladylike and boundlessly cheerful.
