Lisa Edelstein Bio/Wiki 2018

American performer and playwright, Lisa Edelstein has an estimated net worth of $6.5 million. Upon her election by The New York Times as a “top celebutante” in 1986 (due to her popularity in N.Y.C.’s nightclub scene), then-19-year old Lisa Edelstein supposedly developed cautious of “recognition for fame’s sake” and spent years grounding her celebrity in a series of well-respected,if minor, performing appointments.

Lisa Edelstein Net Worth $6.5 Million

She made a small scale introduction in a prestigious picture — the role of the makeup artist in Oliver Stone’s controversial Jim Morrison biopic The Doors (1991) — and then was frequently pigeonholed in sitcom appearances, commonly as a comically bizarre girlfriend or wife. Edelstein scored a lead character several years later on the hit medical drama House, by which she plays Dr. Lisa Cuddy, Dean of Medicine at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, who must always compete with the eccentricities and misanthropy of Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie).

Edelstein was born to a Jewish family in Boston, Massachusetts, now resides in Los Angeles.she’s a vegetarian and an avid practitioner of Mysore fashion Ashtanga.

1I was one of those people who was literally famous for doing nothing . . . I was always a part of the club scene in New York and eventually was able to produce my own musical about AIDS ["Positive Me"] because of the audience and press I received as a club kid. Eventually I was called in to screen test for this MTV show because word was out I was this neat club kid turned playwright. I got the job and basically was humiliated on the air every day. I'm an actor, not a hostess. It was horrifying. I had all this baby fat, so I was just HUGE on camera . . . I still can't watch one frame of the show. Then I got all this hate mail because I couldn't play the part right . . . Luckily the show got canceled after seven months. I was so relieved.
2There are so many good roles for women out there, I don't understand it when people say the role choices are fewer as you get older. I find the opposite to be true -- there are less good roles out there for the hot 20-year-olds because the normal girl parts just aren't interesting.
3I think it's really important for celebrities to use their power of money and fame to get their voices out there. It's funny to me that we're expected to keep quiet just because of who we are. Why do I lose my right to speak my mind because I'm famous? People criticize Michael Moore, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon for standing up for what they believe in, but that's what they do. They never pretended to be anyone else.
4The hardest part about being vegan is shoes. I mean, really, that's the only difficult part, finding shoes that don't have leather on them.
