The American actor has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Gooding Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondergooding - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Cuba) and a fashion line called “Cuba Gooding, Jr. Seduction”.
