BIOGRAPHY, WIKIPEDIA, AGE AND NET WORTH: Fans celebrate Kathy Bates on her 75th birthday today

BIOGRAPHY, WIKIPEDIA, AGE AND NET WORTH: Fans celebrate Kathy Bates on her 75th birthday today.

Oscar winner Kathy Bates was a highly respected stage actress before her film career really took off. But when her acclaimed theater roles originally were adapted into movies, she was never apart of the transfer. She did get to join the cast of the play “Come Back to the 5 and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean” when director Robert Altman filmed the play, but in other cases she missed out. Bates saw three of her stage characters adapted to the screen but she was a part of neither: “Crimes of the Heart” (replaced by Diane Keaton), “night Mother” (replaced by Sissy Spacek) and “Frankie and Johnny” (Michelle Pfeiffer).

That all changed in 1990, when the 42-year-old thespian was suddenly thrust into movie stardom and an Oscar for her work in the film “Misery” (Best Actress, 1990). It was highly unusual for an actress with only limited film credits to take on a starring film role and win the industry’s highest honor – let alone for a horror movie – but Bates accomplished just that. She later earned Best Supporting Actress bids for “Primary Colors” (1998) and “About Schmidt” (2002).

Honored numerous times for her work, Kathy is an undeniable force on stage, screen and television. Bates received her star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame on September 20, 2016 for her achievements film and television.

Bates just wrapped filming the John Lee Hancock drama THE HIGHWAY MEN opposite Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson and is set to star in THE LAUREATE, a drama about British poet and novelist Robert Graves from writer-director William Nunez.

On television, Bates recently starred in Netflix’s pot-themed workplace comedy series, Disjointed. The series was written, and executive produced by Chuck Lorre and David Javerbaum. Bates was also seen in the sixth installment of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: Roanoke on FX. Her role in the 5th installment of the series AHS: Hotel lead to her receiving her 14th Emmy nomination. Bates won rave reviews and her second Emmy® Award as the deliciously evil “Madame LaLaurie” in the third installment of the series Coven.
