The American actor has an estimated net worth of $215 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Palminteri Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderpalminteri - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Chazz) and a fashion line called “Chazz Palminteri Seduction”.
