After performing his own cinematic stunts for more than 50 years, Tom Selleck acknowledges having “messed up” health issues


In the entertainment industry, Tom Selleck has had a long and distinguished career. The enduring enthusiasm of the Magnum, P.I. and Blue Bloods actor is evident in the impending premiere of the successful drama series’ upcoming season.

Over the years, Selleck has taken on a variety of challenging assignments. However, the 77-year-old is known for pulling off his own pranks, which has unluckily come back to haunt him.

When he was younger, Tom Selleck wasn’t certain he wanted to be an actor. His family relocated to California after he was born there on January 29, 1945, and he spent his formative years in the San Fernando Valley.

Selleck is estimated to have a net worth of about $45 million by Celebrity Net Worth.

In numerous movies and television shows, actors have their own stunt double. For a select handful, letting someone else carry out their feats is simply out of the question, even if it is frequently a risky job.

In the past, Selleck has performed the majority of his stunts himself, but doing so has been expensive. He claims that his body is not what it once was.

Selleck said, “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.


He continued, “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.

Although Selleck once admitted he doesn’t enjoy going to the gym, he does his best to stay in shape by working on the family ranch in Ventura, California.

“I own a 63-acre ranch, and while I don’t perform all the the labour, I do a lot of it. planting plants and clearing brush I put a hundred or so old oak trees here. I’ve probably planted 1,000 trees on my own.

It should go without saying that Tom has a successful career. His devotion to Jillie Mack, his wife, is also something to be honoured. While many famous unions end, the couple has remained blissfully wed for 35 years.


Selleck recalls meeting Jillie Mack for the first time at a performance of the musical Cats, in which Mack was starring, in an interview with Closer Weekly. It was the 1980s, after Selleck’s decade-long marriage to model Jacqueline Ray ended.
