Steve McQueen Net Worth: Steve McQueen was an American actor who had a net worth of $30 million. Born Terence Steven McQueen (March 24, 1930 — November 7, 1980) in Beech Grove, Indiana, US, he was a shining Hollywood star throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Being just six years old when his father left the family, young McQueen spent his youth moving from his grandparents’ house to his mum’s house. Consequently, his father drifted into a life of small criminal and gang member, being caught by police stealing hubcaps in age 14. It was in 1947, when his father moved away from crime as he became a member of the United States Marine Corps. His marine tenure ended in 1950, being honorably discharged for saving the lives of five Marines during an Arctic activity. McQueen started studying acting at the Sanford Meisner’s Neighborhood Playhouse with financial assistance in the GI Bill in 1952. Steve made his debut with all the 1956 feature film Somebody Up There Likes Me, that was followed by appearances in TV western series Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958-61) along with the cult horror movie The Blob (1958). Nevertheless, it was his work in The Magnificent Seven (1960, with Charles Bronson) as well as the World War II epic The Great Escape (1963, with James Garner) that established himself as a slim, laconic action star. McQueen’ seyed cool on the outside and rebellious turmoil internally, made him acceptable for playing cool loners and anti-hero characters. Even though he received an Oscar nomination in 1966 for The Sand Pebbles, he remained best known for the 1968 policemen-and-car-chases film Bullitt. His other popular films include The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), Papillon (1973), as well as the all star ensemble film The Towering Inferno (1974). By 1974, he became the highest-paid performer in the world, although he failed to appear in movies again in the following four years. Steve McQueen died in a practice in Mexico in 1980, after undergoing surgery for cancer.
