Who is Shelleta Chapital?

Shelleta Chapital was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, US – exact information regarding her birthday is unknown, thus we don’t know how old she is, nor what her zodiac sign is. She is best known as a wife of renowned actor Anthony Mackie.

Net Worth

So just how rich is Shelleta Chapital? Information on her personal net worth is not available, but her husband’s net worth is over $4 million, with his net worth being accumulated from his career in the acting world. The couple owns a seven-bedroom, four bathroom house in Orleans Ave, which was an estimated value of over $300,000. There is no other information regarding any other houses, cars or assets, but we suppose that the family lives a comfortable life.

Early Life, Family and Background

There is little information about Shelleta’s early life or family. When it comes to her ethnicity, she is black. She has naturally dark hair and brown eyes, but dyes her hair a blondish color. There is no public information about her body measurements either, but judging from the photos available online, Chapital has a slim figure, despite the fact that she has given birth three times, so most probably works out and eats healthily in order to maintain it.

Profession and Wedding

Information regarding Shelleta’s profession hasn’t been disclosed, as she is really only known as Mackie’s wife. The couple supposedly met when they were children, and married in early 2015, but they didn’t share the information with the media at first. Later on, Mackie confirmed the rumors regarding their marriage in June 2015, in an interview with People Magazine. According to sources, Chapital and Mackie tied the knot in a ceremony held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana, located in the Dominican Republic. One of the guests told the media that the wedding ceremony was “low-key and super relaxed”, adding that “They had a welcome dinner. We golfed and drank. They went on a honeymoon soon after”.


Shelleta’s husband, Anthony Mackie, is a worldwide known actor who has appeared in acclaimed movies such as “The Hurt Locker”, “Captain America: Winter Soldier”, “Captain America: Civil War” and “The Adjustment Bureau”. Shelleta supports her husband and often appears on the red carpet with him.


Reportedly, the couple had their third child in late 2015, and as actor said, they had two sons together prior to marrying. Nonetheless, the family is very private about their personal lives. In one interview, speaking about his family Mackie said “It just changes your entire perspective on the world. Even travelling is an issue now” and jokingly added that now he understands why his family, which had six children, never travelled further than Florida or the Gulf Coast. In another interview, the actor complained on how much money the cinema charges for such big families – “I wish there was a way that more families could afford the opportunity of getting together and going to the movies. Movies have become so expensive now. If two parents take two kids to the movies, and they get popcorn and soda, you’re out 100 bucks. It’s really expensive. So, I wish there was a way that we could make it more family-friendly. It’s frustrating, the number of kids who aren’t able to see it because they simply can’t afford it.”

1[on making "Triple 9"] We had some local actors and some people from the streets. Some of them were from rival gangs, but nobody wanted to mess up the opportunity of being in a movie, so nothing happened. But we came close. It helped put us in the mind of being a cop and thinking about how easy things can explode in your face.
2The great thing about it is, in Hollywood, certain people are very good at keeping their lives and who they are very private. I've never met anybody as down to earth and cool in Hollywood than Matt Damon.
3I did this movie with Spike Lee called Sucker Free City (2004), and that would have to be my favourite role by far. It was just so much fun to work with Spike and shoot in San Francisco.
4Acting is the only medium were people think they can just stand up and do it because they can say lines, but that is not so much the case. You have to study styles and techniques.
5Do you want to be an actor, or do you want to be a celebrity? I made that decision when I went to Juilliard. I wanted to be an actor. So, if I get the opportunity to be an actor and do some cool, fun and interesting projects, I'm going to do that.
6Everybody knows when you've got a role in a Spike Lee movie, you're gonna blow up. But I happen to be the only person who's had the lead in the two Spike Lee movies nobody saw.
7I enjoy where I am and I don't have a problem with being Steve Buscemi, Stanley Tucci, Don Cheadle, or Jeffrey Wright. They're not the lead of every movie they're in, but every time you see them they're really good.
8If everyone invested in the neighborhood they lived in, the United States would be a magical place.
9If the acting don't work out, I'll have a future in construction.
10If you look at the true essence of the Black Panthers, they were more of a community protection group.
11If you want to buy a good movie, you'll buy a good movie. If you don't want to buy a good movie, you'll buy a 'Twilight' movie.
12Money always changes the game, when you let a dollar come between you and your friends, your cohorts.
13Most of my movies are indies. The best scripts I can find are independent films. But I love big-budget movies, I love craft services!
14The stage is my first love.
15There are a lot of limitations and stigmas that are placed on young actors, specifically young black actors.
16There was this rapper from New Orleans, Mystikal, who when I hear his music, I hear myself. Whenever I wanna get hyped, I put on Mystikal.
17With all the movies I've done, I still get recognized from my episode of 'Law & Order' more than anything else. It never fails.
18I went to school and made good grades and went to college. So I was afforded an opportunity through my parents' hard work that most people don't have.
19So I feel like success is opportunity plus preparation, so work begets work, and as long as you're prepared it's going to continue to come your way.
20The choices that we make through our lives, the people who intersect us on our path kind of change what our fated destiny is. So some of us are lucky enough for the choices that we make to keep us on our path.
21Every time I get mad, I grab my hammer and make a bookshelf or something.
22Instead of becoming an engineer like my brother, I moved to New York to be an actor.
23Art-school girls are very nice.
24I like movies. Movies have afforded me a modicum of luxuries. The thing about the movies is, if you're bad in a movie, you're bad forever.
25I was raised with a sense of entrepreneurship - my father owned a roofing business, and I grew up with the idea that you never want someone telling you what you can and cannot do.
26In New Orleans, where I'm from, the average household income, with two working parents, two kids, a dog and a little fence is $16,000 a year, so $15,000 for a movie sounds pretty good.
27At Juilliard, I couldn't afford to have fun. I went to school and stayed home.
28I got a job as soon as I graduated from school. I always wanted to bartend because I love listening to people and how awful their lives are.
29I just don't understand how people can get so caught up in having their picture taken.
30I would love to be a superhero.
31I'm a firm believer in people who love what they do.
32I'm not Josh Brolin or Ryan Gosling. They're more noir than I.
33"I've never seen anything like it before. It's like the old days of James Cagney, when women would just swoon." (on the effect that Matthew McConaughey, his co-star in We Are Marshall (2006), has on women)
34"I was flabbergasted. Everybody knows when you've got a role in a Spike Lee movie, you're gonna blow up. But I happen to be the only person who's had the lead in the two Spike Lee movies nobody saw. It was a humbling experience, but Spike taught me more about how to fall on my face in this business than anybody else." (on the attention he didn't garner after being in Sucker Free City (2004) and She Hate Me (2004))
35"You never see girls running after engineers."(on why he chose acting over a career as an engineer)

2Married his longtime girlfriend, Sheletta Chapital, in December 2014. They have three children together.

9Graduated high school from North Carolina School of the Arts with a concentration in acting.
10His character in 8 Mile (2002) at one point has his rapping skills compared negatively to those of Tupac Shakur. 6 years later, Anthony played Tupac in Notorious (2009).
11Was inspired by his late father, a contractor, not to work in manual labor. Mackie's father later died in New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina.
12Is currently (as of 2010) seeking a producer for a script he has about Olympic athlete Jesse Owens.
13Attended North Carolina School of the Arts, mid-90s.
