Before Dina Merrill died, she was estimated to worth over $5.1 Billion. This is a huge amount of money, thanks to her Hollywood career and multi-million-dollar investments owned by her uber-rich family that she eventually inherited.
Merrill could ask for anything and get it, yet she decided to try her hand at acting. Merrill was a magnifying presence on the big screen and starred in a lot of blockbuster movies.
She was born to Marjorie Merriweather Post, a cereal heiress and Wall Street broker E. F. Hutton. Growing up with a lot of fortune meant that Marjorie lived a luxurious lifestyle and often took lavish vacations. The actress was so rich that the famous home of Donald.J.Trump, the Mar-a-Lago estate, once used to be her home. But with her social status, there were a lot of things that Marjorie wasn’t able to experience like going to school like a normal child, in a regular school bus.
Even though, she was a millionaire before she started her career in Hollywood, she once modelled for Vogue and was paid only $10 an hour. Merrill’s ambition was not centered around her family’s wealth. She wanted things on her own terms. The dream of her father was to become a lawyer and end up at the Congress. She defiled that dream and built her own world around the entertainment industry.
