Anthony has brothers Calvin and Willie Jr. and sisters Linda and Marian, whom he is very friendly with. All of them found their way in life and became successful and wealthy people, but the faith of their parents was tragic.

Our hero’s mother died when he was still a child. A few years later his father married again. His stepmother turned out to be a kind and caring woman contrary to stereotypes. Three new children were born in the new family but Anthony and Calvin never felt left out - there was enough parental love for everyone. But in 2005 the young actor's father and stepmother became victims of the terrible hurricane Katrina, which practically destroyed New Orleans and killed nearly 2,000 people.

Acting career

In 2002 Mackie starred in the 8 Mile musical drama with rapper Eminem in the lead role. The film was a huge success, it was awarded an Oscar for the best song and became an excellent start in the career of the starting actor. Tempting offers fell on Anthony as from a horn of plenty and over the next two years his filmography was filled with seven full-length pictures. Among them were the Hollywood Homicide (2003) action with Harrison Ford in the lead role and the Million Dollar Baby (2004) sports drama, which received four Oscars.
