The Latest Pictures Of Tom Selleck Confirms What Many Of Us Suspected…

Hollywood is renowned as the land where dreams come true, yet only a select few possess the talent and luck to establish themselves and thrive.

Navigating a prosperous career in the film industry is a rare achievement, but fortunately, Tom Selleck stands among the elite who have graced television screens for numerous years.

His breakthrough arrived with the lead role as Thomas Magnum in "Magnum, P.I.," garnering him five Emmy Award nominations and clinching one in 1985.

Before achieving stardom, Selleck landed minor roles in films and series, appeared in commercials, and even made a couple of appearances on "The Dating Game." Reflecting on the experience, he recalled it as "humiliating and embarrassing," admitting to losing twice and feeling neither particularly funny nor glib. Selleck then joined 20th Century Fox’s talent program, where he spent approximately two years before taking a break for six months of active duty. Upon his return, he was released from the program, but this setback didn't dampen his resolve.

Selleck considers himself fortunate not to have secured a significant role until the age of 35. He shared with AARP, "When I was 25, I looked 35 but sounded 15. There are a lot of very good actors who make it as younger leading men but don’t graduate — because the audience won’t accept them as grown up."

"Magnum P.I." came at a crucial moment when Selleck was on the brink of abandoning his pursuit of an acting career. He confessed in an interview with Closer Weekly, "I think if Magnum hadn’t worked out, I’d never have worked again in this business."

Since 2010, Selleck has been a co-star in the television series "Blue Bloods," portraying Frank Reagan, the commissioner of the New York City Police Department. The show has been renewed for its 13th season.

Throughout his extensive career, Selleck has often performed his own stunts. However, this decision has taken its toll, and he acknowledges that his body isn't what it used to be.

“My back’s kind of messed up,” Selleck admitted.

“When you do stunts in movies—I do a lot of them—you’re taking a risk, but you’re also sitting around a lot. So you might do a fight scene, and then you sit in your chair, and it’s not like you have a personal trainer saying, ‘Okay, we’re ready to go, but Tom needs ten minutes of stretching and warm-up.’”

“And I think the price,” he continued, “I see it with peers, I talk to them sometimes. You just see the price of all those stunts. They weren’t that hard, but I think it’s the stop-and-go of all that stuff.”

The actor stays in shape by tending to his ranch in Ventura, California. He also has a deep passion for horses, a love he has passed down to his daughter.

Selleck has been married to his wife, Jillie Mack, for 35 years. What sets their union apart as one of the strongest in Hollywood is his unwavering commitment to prioritizing his family above all else.


In a 2012 interview with People, Selleck revealed, “I quit Magnum to have a family. It took a long time to get off the train, but I try very hard to have balance, and this ranch has helped me do that.”

His wife chimed in, expressing, “We both thought it was the best environment for Hannah to grow up.”

Wishing Tom Selleck continued good health.
