“I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart.”
“I always tell the truth, even when I lie.”
“The reality is that we do not wash our own laundry, it just gets dirtier.”
The man who said all of those lines is one of the greatest actors of all time. Al Pacino has been on the big screen for nearly six decades, and his storied career includes box-office sensations like “The Godfather,” “Heat” and “Scent of a Woman,” and less lucrative but still captivating films like “Scarface,” “Dog Day Afternoon” and “Serpico.” Always bold, always memorable, Pacino is a man with few equals — including in the pocketbook.
With an estimated net worth of $165 million, he has come a long way from his humble New York City roots and impoverished early 20s. And for the 40-odd films in which he’s played a big or small part, there have been surprisingly few flops — although the ones that did certainly fell hard. Pacino has also found great success in stage roles and in television productions, picking up numerous awards along the way.
So let’s get to know the eminently quotable Al Pacino.
