Lauren started her career as a model and later made her debut as an actress in the movie “To Have and Have Not”. After her family moved to Ocean Parkway, Brooklyn she joined the famous Highland Manor Boarding School, supported by the money of her rich uncles, and later she attended Julia Richman High School. She subsequently studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, alongside working as a fashion model and as a theatre usher. After her debut film in 1942, she was well on her path to becoming a celebrity. During the audition of “To Have and Have Not” she was very nervous and was shivering, and to control the shivering she pressed her chin down and in order to look at the cameras she tilted her eyes upward, which became her trademark look. Lauren used to refuse the scripts of the films which she didn’t liked and thus was referred to as very difficult to sign. In the 1950’s she was at the peak of her stardom, and appeared almost continuously in many films which were critically acclaimed and received many awards. These movies include “Young Man With a Horn” and “How to Marry a Millionaire”. In the 1960’s and 1970’s she appeared in very few movies, like “Woman of the Year” and “Applause”, for these two she won Tony Awards, and other movies in which she starred during this period include “Sex and the Single Girl”, “Cactus Flower” and “Murder on the Orient Express”.
Overall, Lauren Bacall appeared in over 60 films, more than 20 TV productions, and as many as 20 stage plays. All these appearances are the reason for her total net worth and her huge number of fans, added to from having written two autobiographies named “Lauren Bacall By Myself” and “Now”.
In her personal life, Lauren married iconic actor Humphrey Bogart 1945, and until 1957 when Bogart died due to esophageal cancer. After the death of her husband, Lauren became close to singer Frank Sinatra, but later their relationship ended apparently because Sinatra became angry when the story of how he proposed to Lauren reached the media. In 1961 she married another actor, Jason Robards in Mexico, but they divorced in 1969. She had a son with Bogart, and a son and daughter. Lauren is a known Democratic party supporter, also gave speeches for the presidential campaign of Adlai Stevenson in 1952, and was a strong opponent of the House Un-American Activities Committee of the 1950s.
