During her career, Swoosie managed to win an Emmy award and two Tony awards. She was also nominated for a variety of different awards for her theatrical and television performances. Over the course of her career, she has managed to accumulate an estimated total net worth of $9 million.
Unfortunately, there are not as many cheerful events in her personal life in comparison to what she has achieved with her career. Swoosie never got married and has no children. However, in an interview held in April 2014, she shared that she had an abortion back in the 1960s. Regardless, she is still one of the most highly-regarded actresses and an autographed wallpaper of her is still quite precious. Swoosie Kurtz has definitely left an impressive mark on both Hollywood movie scenes and the Broadway’s theatre. She is an actress that has brought so much to the world of acting and she might still have few tricks in her sleeves, regardless of her advanced age.
Swoosie Kurtz’s new book “Part Swan, Part Goose: An uncommon Memoir of Womanhood, Work, and Family, outlines the parallels between her mother’s career and her own. “My mom and I made very different life choices, but at the same time, they paralleled each other. It was my mother’s story that led me to write my own memoir. It was at the start of the Iraq War that I reread my mother’s memoir of being a war wife. Her longing and waiting are universal and I wanted others to connect with her story”. In her memoir, Swoosie also describes the heartache around caring for aging parents. She says, “In Europe, it is understood that your parents will end up living with you,” Kurtz told me. “Not in the U.S. Do we really expect to just put our parents out to pasture?” Although she never married and has no children of her own, Swoosie says that she is happy with the life that she has led. “I can say that the love of my life has been my parents. And I am satisfied with that.” Swoosie Kurtz is currently starring in the television show “Mike and Molly” with fellow comedic actress Melissa McCarthy.Return to the previous page
