Michael Keaton BioGraphy

Michael John Douglas (and this is how the real name of the actor sounds) was born on September 5, 1951 in the small town of Coraopolis in central Pennsylvania. His mother, Leona Elizabeth, looked after the house and family, and his father, George Douglas, worked as a civil engineer. In the biography of this family, several different national lines are intertwined at once. So, in particular, in the veins of our today’s hero, in addition to American, Irish and Scottish blood also flows. Perhaps it was this explosive mixture that predetermined the entire life of the famous Hollywood actor. Despite his strict Catholic upbringing, he has always been a windy teenager. After graduating from school, he moved to Ohio, where he studied rhetoric at the University of Kent for two years.


After moving to Pittsburgh, he worked for a time as a model, security guard and bartender. And after that, I suddenly suddenly thought about the profession of an actor. For some time he tried to realize himself as a stand-up comedian, theater actor and even an operator. But it always came out somehow not very well. Realizing the need for change, at the age of twenty-four, our today’s hero moved to Los Angeles, where he enrolled in theater courses and began to go to various auditions and auditions all day long. It is quite remarkable that it was in the City of Angels that our today’s hero began to use the pseudonym “Michael Keaton” for the first time. Such a decision came to the young actor quite simply. In order to avoid confusion and analogies with Michael Douglas, the talented guy “borrowed” the name from his favorite actress – Diane Keaton. So, in fact, the name appeared, under which Michael is known all over the world today. At first, the actor starred in commercials, played small roles in television shows, and also played in episodes of American TV series. Only at thirty-one, he finally managed to find his first bright role. Such was the role in the comedy film “Night shift”. Despite the small budget, the success of the film in the American box office was not bad at all. Michael gained his first popularity and subsequently starred exclusively in comedy films for several years.
