The American actress has an estimated net worth of $145 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Wiest Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Kansas City Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwiest - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Dianne) and a fashion line called “Dianne Wiest Seduction”.
