Robert Patrick Net Worth $6 Million
Born in Marietta, Georgia, Patrick is the son of Nadine and Robert Sr., and the eldest of five kids. During his younger years, acting was not in Patrick’s plan; he was educated in Farmington High School in Michigan, and later his college education was at Bowling Green State University. His early years in Bowling Green were focused on playing American Football and on the track, until he attended a drama class that sparked his interest, and he decided to drop out of college.
After leaving college, Patrick struggled to launch his acting career, and for a while worked as a house painter in Ohio, and then as a bartender in Los Angeles. Although he was able to book small appearances in low-budget films including “Eye of the Eagle”, “Future Hunters” and “Killer Instincts”, income was still minimal, and he was even forced to live in his car.
Patrick’s break finally came in 1990 when he was included in Bruce Willis’ film “Die Hard 2”; though it was a small role, it opened doors of opportunities for him in Hollywood, and Patrick got the role of the antagonist in the film “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” in 1991. His role as the robot T-1000 became one of his most iconic roles to date; with limited lines and limited expression his performance on the film established him as one of the premiere villains in Hollywood. The movie’s success meant the same for Patrick’s career, and helped his wealth immensely.
Right after “Terminator 2”, projects started pouring in for Patrick. His next projects included “Wayne’s World” and “Last Action Hero” – in which he reprised his role as T-1000 – “Fire in the Sky”, “Double Dragon”, “Hong Kong 97” and “Striptease”; slowly his career was growing along with his net worth.
In the early 2000s, Patrick started transitioning to television, appearing in various shows including . While simultaneously appearing in television, he also made movies including “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle”, “Ladder 49”, “Walk the Line” and “Flag of Our Fathers”, making him a very busy and wealthy actor.
Patrick has now made over 80 films, and countless appearances in television shows, making him not just a sought-after villain but a great actor as well. Patrick is still active in show business; recently he became part of the suspense drama series “Scorpion”.
In terms of Patrick’s personal life, Patrick has been married to actress Barbara Hooper since 1991, and together they have two kids. Patrick also participates in “Love Ride”, a charity motorbike event that helps raise money for the benefit of under privileged children and US veterans.

1 [2012, on The Marine (2006)] I think it was at a point in my career when I really needed a job, and there it was. John Cena, good guy. It was a WWE film. Another archetype villain. I wanted to see what I could do within that genre. I had fun with it. I got to do some stuff with the director that he and I kind of concocted that I thought worked. It ended up being one of the most successful films that WWE ever produced. I gave it everything I could, man. That’s all you can do. I committed wholeheartedly. I got to go to Australia and take the family, I remember that. And right after that, I think I went to work for David Mamet on The Unit (2006).
2 [2012, on Lost (2004)] First time I’d ever been to Hawaii in my life. I flew in, and I remember them putting me up in a hotel. I had one scene to do. There was a missing finger, as I recall. I never watched the show, I didn’t know who I was or what I was, but I committed to that part, too, and I think it worked. Hawaii was certainly great. I got to go to Pearl Harbor. They just called me up and said, “Hey, we want you to play this part; it’s one scene, but you’ve got a nice monologue.” So I said, “Sure, what the hell.” And the young man that I had the scene with [Josh Holloway], a terrific guy, it turned out he was from Georgia.
3 [2012, on The Sopranos (1999)] That was a very, very daunting experience, to fly into New York and get in there and work with those guys. My acting coach and I worked our butts off getting in there, so I felt good about what I was doing, and it definitely paid off. Everybody in Hollywood watched The Sopranos (1999), so it was good for me to be seen on that show and show what I could do. [James] Gandolfini is one of the greatest actors I’ve ever worked with. Edie Falco, tremendous. A great experience.
4 [The T-1000] is what broke me out big to the world, and I kind of carry it with me everywhere I go, for good or bad.
5 I looked to animal and insect imagery to develop the lack of substance and wasted motion that my Terminator has. I tried to tap into the killer instinct inherent in animals, where they are locked onto a target and will walk through anything that gets between them and their intended target.
6 [on success] Acting is the only thing I have to offer so a day doesn’t go by when I don’t stop and appreciate this.
7 I think 90% of acting is makeup and wardrobe. The other 10% is what I do here in my office, bouncing off the walls.
8 If acting hadn’t worked out? I never really gave that a lot of thought. Acting HAD to work out. I never gave myself another option. I had no choice.
9 I think every experience you have working with people you admire and respect really enriches you as an artist.
10 I love acting, period. If I’m going to get hired as a psycho, by God I’ll take the job. I am enjoying playing humans a little bit more now.
11 I wouldn’t trade my film school – which is basically Roger Corman – for anything. That’s how I got my experience in front of the camera.
12 [on his role in Fire in the Sky (1993)] I am this guy. This is the closest to the real me than I’ve ever seen. I grew up with these kinds of guys.
13 I’m the kind of actor that talks to myself in a weird way to find whoever it is I’m looking for.
14 [on his favorite character] He’s (T-1000) one of the ones that I’m the most proud of, but I can’t say that he’s my favorite. But he’s one of my close top favorites. I’ve done some roles since that I’m really proud of. I was proud of what I did in Cop Land (1997). I really liked what I did in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991); there have just been a lot of characters since that I’ve done that I’ve really enjoyed. I REALLY enjoyed John Doggett. He was definitely a role that I very much enjoyed. He might be my favorite. Yeah, Doggett might be my favorite, actually. But I really liked the character I played in Cop Land (1997), a little movie I did called The Only Thrill (1997) with Sam Shepard, Diane Keaton and Diane Lane, and another movie, a very obscure little independent movie called A Texas Funeral (1999) with Martin Sheen.
15 [on Wushu – the martial art training he studied for preparing the role of the T-1000] Everyday, I had to show up and convince myself that I literally was this guy (T-1000) and that’s not easy to do. There are many distractions. I really consider the whole T2 experience sort of like a boot camp, military type of an experience that I endured and sort of graduated from if that makes any sense to you.
16 [on his preparations when he was cast as the T-1000] My intention was just to be a good adversary for Arnold to match. To match and be superior in character that you would believe that I could get the upper hand on him or else the whole movie wouldn’t work. I obviously had a great deal of faith in Jim Cameron and Stan Winston and everyone involved, so that was where my commitment was, to really pull this off. I didn’t want to let him down or let anybody down but I had hoped it would be this memorable, I had an inclination it would, but I don’t think I realized what an impact it would have, and how it would change my life.
17 I’ve been acting for 16 years. I’ve done 55 movies and, in all seriousness, there’s maybe five that are good and the rest are crap.
18 You can’t think about how people will perceive you or your character. All you can do is focus on your work. The rest is up to the universe.
1 He is left-handed.
2 Brother-in-law of Tina Johnson.
3 Currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
4 Majored in accounting while attending Bowling Green State University.
5 Immediately after being cast in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), he took a martial-arts crash course, then began exhaustive strength, endurance, and weapons-training sessions. “For three months,” he says, “all I did was sleep, eat, take vitamins, and train.”.
6 Enjoys riding motorcycles.
7 During his first 10 years in the film business in which Patrick was a struggling actor in “B” movies, his pay was so meager that he had to supplement it by bartending at night.
8 In the mid to late 1980s, he lived in the same Los Angeles complex with such neighbors such as Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty (2003)), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters (1984)) and Cynthia Ettinger (Deadwood (2004), The Silence of the Lambs (1991)).
9 Has played the fathers of both Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash: Vernon Presley in Elvis (2005) and Ray Cash in Walk the Line (2005).
10 The appearance of character Dale Gribble from the animated series King of the Hill (1997) is based on Patrick.
11 Has the distinction of being the only actor killed on screen by all three of the Planet Hollywood founders: Bruce Willis (in Die Hard 2 (1990)), Sylvester Stallone (in Cop Land (1997)), and most famously by Arnold Schwarzenegger (in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)).
12 Has two children with his wife Barbara Patrick: daughter Austin and son Samuel.
13 Has four siblings: Richard Patrick, Cheri Patrick, Karen Patrick and Lewis Patrick.
14 Has played the same character (T-1000) in three movies: Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), Wayne’s World (1992) and Last Action Hero (1993).
15 Attended Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, but dropped out.
16 Attended and graduated from Farmington High School in Farmington, Michigan (1977).
17 Has appeared in Meat Loaf’s music video “Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer than They Are”.
18 Has reprised his Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) character, the T-1000, for the theme park attraction T2 3-D: Battle Across Time (1996), a short film filmed in a new 3-D process that makes the film really appear to jump out at you.
