We tell about the beauty of celebs’ bodies so often, because physically most of them are really perfect. But very rarely we speak about the souls of famous people, about their kindness and piety. Really, not many of them can boast with a beautiful inner world. But still there are stars, like Angelina Jolie or Patrick Schwarzenegger, who care about the others and spend most part of their income for charity. Patrick Swayze was one of them.
He was married just once in his life. He met his loved one – Lisa Niemi – when he was just 18 years old. They wedded in 1975 and spent together 34 great years. The couple had no children, but they loved and inspired each other and remained together till Patrick’s tragical death at the age of 57.
Patrick Swayze was a son of a choreographer Patsy Swayze and an engineer Jesse Wayne Swayze. The boy was very fast and strong and that’s why he did well in many various sports activities. Thus Patrick was good in dancing, football, ice skating. He became a trained dancer, who had studied at Joffrey Ballet school.
Patrick started career as a dancer and was compared to the greatest dancers of Russian Bolshoy Theater. But an injury stopped his career in ballet and he got a chance to become an actor.
Swayze’s most popular screen works are “Ghost”, “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar”, “Point Break” and many others.
He was diagnosed with IV stage of pancreatic cancer in January, 2008. A year later the talented actor and dancer passed away.
