In 2016 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

The Irish actor has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Farrell Burger” chain) in Dublin, a Football Team (the “Castleknock Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderfarrell - Ireland), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Colin) and a fashion line called “Colin Farrell Seduction”.
