Alfredo James Pacino was born in East Harlem, Manhattan, on April 25, 1940. When Pacino was two years old, his parents divorced. Al and his mother eventually moved in with his grandparents in the Bronx. His grandparents were Italian immigrants from Corleone, Sicily, by coincidence. During Al’s childhood, his father, who was born in San Fratello, Sicily, migrated to Covino, California.

Pacino had a difficult time in school. He went to Herman Ridder Junior High School but dropped out of almost all of his studies, with the exception of English. He then auditioned for the High School of Performing Arts and was accepted. His mother was enraged by this decision, and Al moved out on his own after an argument. He supported himself outside of school by working as a janitor, messenger, and busboy, among other odd jobs.

During this time, Al took action wherever he could. In addition, he was frequently unemployed and homeless. He appeared in NYC’s theatrical underworld in basement shows. He tried out for acting companies but was mostly turned down. He was eventually accepted into HB Studio, where Al was mentored by Charlie Laughton, who became his best friend and mentor.

He auditioned and was finally admitted into the Actors Studio, an association of the country’s greatest professional actors, playwrights, and theatre directors, after four years with HB Studio. Under the tutelage of renowned teacher Lee Strasberg, he learned method acting. Later, Pacino would reflect:

In 1969, Al made his film debut in “Me, Natalie.” He’d follow it up with “The Panic at Needle Park” not long after. This attracted enough attention for Francis Ford Coppola to cast him in The Godfather as Michael Corleone. Al would receive his first Academy Award nomination for the role. Pacino would go on to feature in films like “Serpico,” “And Justice for All,” “Dog Day Afternoon,” and “The Godfather Part 2” (which he would reprise years later).

Pacino’s output in the 1980s was somewhat lower. He did, however, play Tony Montana in “Scarface” in 1983. Despite critical acclaim, the film was a box office triumph, and Pacino’s performance would go on to become one of his most famous and iconic portrayals.

“Dick Tracey,” “Scent of a Woman,” “The Devil’s Advocate,” “Any Given Sunday,” “Insomnia,” “Phil Spector,” “Paterno,” “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” and “The Irishman” are among Pacino’s other significant cinematic appearances. For “Scent of a Woman,” he won the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role in 1993. He has been nominated for eight Academy Awards as of this writing, but has only won one.

Al Pacino’s Investment in Properties

He now splits his time between Beverly Hills, California, and New York City. For the past ten years, he has lived in a mansion in Beverly Hills that he leases. The late novelist Jackie Collins owned the house when he initially moved in. Although Pacino has been permitted to remain a renter, Jackie’s estate sold the property and the house next door for a total of $30 million in 2016.

Pacino has had a substantial property in Palisades, New York, for a long time. He has also owned houses in New York City in the past, but has opted to rent in recent years. Al, it appears, is more of a renter!
