Finding a place under the Hollywood sky is what many people dream of, but not many get to live that dream.
When he was still just a child, Ricky Schroder landed roles which helped him make a name for himself. He grew up in front of the eyes of the public and many of his fans, but the recent photos of the actor have people worried.
Ricky was born on April 13, 1970, in Staten Island, New York. He started his acting career in the late 1970s with the film The Champ. This role earned him a Golden Globe award and opened the doors to him for more movies and projects.
Later, Ricky played in Silver Spoons, airing from 1982 to 1987. This was another role the young actor earned acclaim for.
Over the years, he was part of popular shows such as NYPD Blue, Scrubs, and Strong Medicine. In addition to being in front of the camera, Ricky also tried himself behind it and worked as a director and producer. He produced a project titled Black Cloud in 2004 for which he received the Best Director Award at the San Diego International Film Festival.
However, as his career went upwards, he experienced troubles in his personal life. His then girlfriend Andrea Bernard accused him of domestic violence in 1992 and he got arrested.
Two years after the incident the two got back together and married. The couple welcomed four children together, Holden, Luke, Cambrie, and Faith, but they ended their relationship in 2016.
The divorce served as a downward spiral for Ricky who turned to partying and was unable to stay in a healthy relationship.
He and his first daughter became estranged and he was again arrested for domestic violence against his girlfriend.
The bail he was asked to pay was $50,000 but the case was eventually dismissed.
In recent years, Ricky spends his days on his farm and tends to stay out of the limelight. He, however, stays in touch with his fans through his social media where he posts videos and photos of him and his home.
One of the recent videos he shared caused a stir. The reason why is that people believe his looks changed drastically. He could be seen in his full farmer regalia, wearing a hat and a denim shirt.
Ricky spoke of the old days, his youth, and his uncle who taught him a lot about the military. He also asked from his fans to never turn a blind eye to corruption in the federal system.
Most of the comments under the video weren’t related to what he had to say and the message he was trying to spread, but about his appearance, with many dubbing his looks ‘rough.’
“Ricky why are you looking so rough,” someone wrote. “What the hell happened to Ricky Schroder?” another added. “He looks ROUGH,” a third commented.
Of course, some fans defended the actor claiming his rigorous work as a farmer was the reason behind his appearance.
“He’s living. Hopefully, thriving,” a fan wrote.
“He looks great!” another person added. “Rough looks good on him!”
“He’s a farmer/rancher. Hard work is rough on the body. Much respect for Rick, living an honest life,” a third said.
We are glad Ricky Schroder is living his life to the fullest the way he loves.
