Annie D’Angelo is a former professional make-up artist, whose journey to stardom started when she began dating the American singer-songwriter Willie Nelson.
Age, Early Life, and Education Background
Annie D’Angelo was born under the Virgo zodiac sign on 27 August 1956, in the USA, and is currently 65 years old as of early 2022. She has a secretive nature, and has hidden the names of her parents and any other family members, as well as details of her childhood.
Annie went to a local high school, and was involved in dancing, acting and playing football. She matriculated in 1974, and took a course in make-up rather than pursuing a college degree.
D’Angelo is believed to be a huge fan of marijuana and her husband runs a marijuana-based business.
She enjoys participating in outdoor recreational activities, and has toured dozens of national parks and museums across the US with her husband.
The retired make-up artist likes watching films, and her favorites are “Pretty Woman,” “Scent of a Woman,” and “A Good Year”, while her favorite entertainers are Al Pacino, Julia Roberts and Russell Crowe.
She also likes reading books.
D’Angelo and her husband advocate for use of biodiesel, and have partnered to build several Pacific Biodiesel plants.
Annie worked on several productions in the ’80s – her earliest work was in the movie “Bachelor Party” (1984), which starred Tawny Kitaen, Wiliam Tepper and Tom Hanks before she played a huge role in the make-up department of the Western remake of the film “Stagecoach” in 1986. She was the make-up supervisor on the films “The Rosary Murders” and “Hot Pursuit” of 1987, and also contributed to the making of 1988’s “Where the Hell’s That Gold.” She also made a notable contribution to the film “Gleaming the Cube,” in 1989, which starred Christian Slater, and follows the story of a resilient skateboarder who is trying to hone his skills – many professional skateboarders took part in the film’s creation.
She is now a businesswoman who is in charge of her partner’s cannabis firm, Willie’s Reserve, which was founded in 2015. She sells a wide array of products, and launched Annie’s Infused Edibles in 2017.
Annie met Willie Nelson while they were filming the movie “Stagecoach” in 1986, and they started dating thereafter. They exchanged vows in September 1991 in a colorful wedding ceremony attended by close friends and family, at Nashville’s Alcuin Church. The couple had their first son, Lucas on 25 December 1988 and then their second-born, Jacob Micah two years later – both of her son’s followed in their father’s footsteps to become musicians, and the former is a lead vocalist and guitarist who runs the band Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. D’Angelo and Willie are presently living in Maui, Hawaii.
Nelson was previously married to his third wife Connie Koepke, whom he divorced in 1988 – the duo had two children, Amy Lee and Paula Carlene. Before Connie, he had wedded the yodeler and singer Shirley Collie in 1963 but they also parted ways after being together for eight years, when she discovered that he’d fathered a child outside their marriage. Willie tied the knot with his first wife, Martha Matthews, in 1952 but terminated their 10 years of togetherness in 1962; they had welcomed three children together, Willy Billy Hugh, Jr., Susie and Lana,.
Height and Weight
Annie is of mixed Italian and native American ancestry and has brown eyes and long blonde hair. She is 5ft 5ins (1.66m) tall and weighs approximately 130lbs (60kgs).
According to authoritative sources, D’Angelo has a net worth of approximately $1 million, acquired largely from the years she worked as a make-up artist in Hollywood, also from her other business endeavors, and probably sharing her husband Willie’s net worth estimated at around $25 million. They own a ranch named Luck Texas, located near Spicewood, Texas.
Who Is Her Husband, Willie Nelson?
Willie was born under the Taurus zodiac sign on 29 April 1933, and is 88 years old as of 2022. He didn’t meet his mother because she left soon after his birth – his father was a mechanic. He was brought up together with his sister by his grandparents, who influenced him to develop an interest in music. As a child, he learnt to play the guitar, and was a member of their church choir.
Willie went to Abbott High and joined the basketball, American Football and baseball teams. He later joined The Texans music band, formed by his sister’s spouse, and began performing on radio. He held several odd jobs after his matriculation – he was a phone operator before he quit to serve in the US Air Force for a few months. Subsequently, he enrolled at Baylor University, Waco, Texas, to study agriculture, but dropped out to pursue his musical career.
Career Beginnings and Rise to Stardom
Nelson began his career as a DJ, and used the station’s equipment to record songs, which he later sent to various music labels – he also performed at nightclubs.
During the initial phase of his career, he toured many US destinations such as San Diego, Portland, and Eugene, looking for better opportunities.
His musical career improved significantly when he met with singer Larry Butler, who offered him a job as a backing musician. His fame started rising slowly and steadily, and he relocated to Texas, where he continued working as a DJ and a musician. He signed a contract with D Records, and later released several songs which became hits, such as “Hello Walls,” “Pretty Paper,” and “Crazy” before 1960.
He later signed a contract with Pamper Music, and released the album “And Then I Wrote” in 1962.
Nelson’s contract with Atlantic Records saw his career changing significantly in 1973 – he developed his outlaw country style, and released “Shotgun Willie,” which was followed by many other albums, altogether over 70, such as “Stardust,” and “Red Headed Stranger.” He has released many singles, written several books such as “Willie: An Autobiography”, and appeared in over 50 TV shows and films such as 1979’s “The Electric Horseman,” “Pair Of Aces” in 1990, 2008’s “Beer For My Horses,” “Paradox” in 2018.
