About Steve McQueen

Steve McQueen was an American actor with an estimated net worth of $30 million. He was born Terrence Steven McQueen on March 24, 1930 in Beech Grove, Indiana. He served in the United States Marine Corps after moving away from criminal activities he has engaged in as a teenager.

After McQueen was honourably discharged from the marines in 1950, he began studying acting at Sanford Meisner’s Neighborhood Playhouse with the financial help from the GI Bill in 1952. His acting debut came in 1956 with the feature film Somebody Up There Likes Me. It was followed by a television appearance in the western series Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958-1961), as well as with the cult horror film The Blob (1958).

Steve McQueen was best noted for his work in The Magnificent Seven (1960) with Charles Bronson, and the World War II epic The Great Escape (1963) with James Garner. His performances had established him as a lean, laconic action star. He was known as “The King of Cool” with his blue-eyed cool on the outside and rebellious turmoil on the inside with his “anti-hero” persona.

In 1966, Steve received an Oscar nomination for The Sand Pebbles, but he is best known for the 1968 cops-and-car chases movie Bullit. Among his other popular films are The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), Papillion (1973), and the all-star ensemble flick The Towering Inferno (1974). He became the highest-paid actor in the world in 1974, despite not having any movie in the next four years. In November 7, 1980, he died due to malignant mesothelioma after undergoing surgery for cancer at a Clinic in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico.

Today, McQueen continues to increase his post-mortem earnings by around $7 million as trendy brands such as Dolce & Gabbana and Tommy Hilfiger as well as UBS keep on using his image.
