Mary Tyler Moore Net Worth: Mary Tyler Moore is an American actress who has a net worth of $60 million dollars. Born December 29, 1936, in Brooklyn Heights, New York City, New York, Mary Tyler Moore is best known for her roles in the television sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-77) and an earlier role as Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-66). Moore also appeared in a number of films, most notably 1967's Thoroughly Modern Millie and 1980's Ordinary People, in which she played a role very different from the television characters she had portrayed, and for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. At the age of 17, Moore aspired to be a dancer and started her career as Happy Hotpoint, a tiny elf dancing on Hotpoint appliances in TV commercials during the '50s series Ozzie and Harriet. She appeared in 39 TV commercials in five days, ultimately earning about $6,000 from her first job. Her time as Happy Hotpoint ended when it became difficult to conceal her pregnancy in the dancing elf costume. Moore modeled anonymously on the covers of a number of record albums and auditioned for the role of the older daughter of Danny Thomas for his long-running TV show, but was turned down. Much later, Thomas explained that "no daughter of mine could have that [little] nose." Moore has been active in charity work and various political causes, particularly the issues of animal rights and Diabetes mellitus type 1. Moore herself was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes early in the run of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and also dealt with alcoholism, which she was treated for in the '80s. In May 2011, she underwent elective brain surgery to remove a benign meningioma.
