Rita Moreno net worth: Rita Moreno is a Puerto Rican singer, dancer, and actress who has a net worth of $5 million dollars. Born in Humacoa, Puerto Rico, Rita Moreno, also known as Rosa Dolores Alvario, moved to New York with her mother when she was in kindergarten, and began taking dance classes soon after she arrived. She began doing Spanish-language voice over work when she was eleven, and by age 14, she was appearing in her first Broadway show. After playing supporting roles in such films as "The Toast of New Orleans", "Singin' in the Rain", and "The King and I", she took the world by storm, playing Anita in the film adaptation of the award-winning musical, "West Side Story". Her performance won her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Over the course of her career, she has also won an Emmy, a Grammy, and a Tony making her a member of the EGOT club. She is also recognized for her work on "The Electric Company", and on the HBO drama, "Oz".
Rita Moreno (born December 11, 1931) is a Puerto Rican singer, dancer and actress. She is the only Hispanic and one of the few performers to have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony, and was the second Puerto Rican to win an Academy Award.
Moreno was born Rosa Dolores AlverA-o in Humacao, Puerto Rico, to Rosa MarA-a, a seamstress, and Paco AlverA-o, a farmer. She moved with her mother to New York City at the age of five, and took the surname of her stepfather, Edward Moreno.
She began her first dancing lessons soon after arriving in New York from a friend of her mother, a Spanish dancer called Paco Cansino, who was the uncle of Rita Hayworth. When she was 11 years old, she lent her voice to Spanish language versions of American films.
She had her first Broadway role a?? as "Angelina" in Skydrift a?? by the time she was 13, which caught the attention of Hollywood talent scouts. She appeared in small roles in The Toast of New Orleans and Singin' in the Rain, in which she played Zelda Zanners.
In March 1954, Moreno was featured on the cover of Life Magazine with a caption a??Rita Moreno: An Actresses' Catalog of Sex and Innocence.a??
In 1956, she had a supporting role in the film version of The King and I as Tuptim, but disliked most of her other work during this period.
In 1961, Moreno landed the role of Anita in Robert Wise's and Jerome Robbins' film adaptation of Leonard Bernstein's and Stephen Sondheim's groundbreaking Broadway musical, West Side Story, which was played by Chita Rivera on Broadway. Moreno won the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for that role.
After winning the Oscar, Moreno thought she would be able to continue to perform less stereotypical film roles, but was disappointed.
Moreno went on to be the first Hispanic to win an Emmy (1977), a Grammy (1972), an Oscar (1962) and a Tony (1975). In 1985, she won the Sarah Siddons Award for her work in Chicago.
Besides appearing in Singin' in the Rain, The King and I
