Tom Selleck, renowned for his roles in Magnum, P.I. and Blue Bloods, is gearing up for the upcoming season of the successful drama series, showcasing his enduring passion for acting. Despite his notable career, Selleck, now 77, is also known for his penchant for pulling pranks, a trait that has occasionally come back to haunt him.

Born on January 29, 1945, in California, Selleck initially wasn’t certain about pursuing an acting career. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley, his family later relocated to California. Celebrity Net Worth estimates Selleck’s net worth to be around $45 million.

While many actors rely on stunt doubles for risky scenes, Selleck has a history of performing the majority of his stunts himself, even though it can be physically demanding and expensive. However, as he acknowledged, his body isn’t as resilient as it once was.

Selleck shared, “My back’s kind of messed up. When you perform stunts for movies—I do a lot of them—you take a chance but also spend a lot of time waiting around. It’s not like you have a personal trainer telling you, ‘Okay, we’re ready to go, but Tom needs ten minutes of stretching and warm-up,’ after you perform a fight scene and then sit in your chair. And I think the price; I see it with colleagues, I talk to them occasionally. You can simply see the cost of all those tricks. Although they weren’t particularly challenging, I believe the stop-and-go nature of all that stuff is to blame.”

Despite confessing that he doesn’t enjoy going to the gym, Selleck maintains his fitness by actively working on his family ranch in Ventura, California. He owns a 63-acre ranch and actively engages in tasks like planting plants and clearing brush, emphasizing his commitment to physical activity.

In addition to his successful career, Selleck’s enduring marriage to Jillie Mack, spanning 35 years, is a noteworthy aspect of his life. The couple first met during a performance of the musical Cats, where Mack was starring. Selleck’s dedication to both his craft and personal life has contributed to his lasting impact in the entertainment industry.
