The American actress has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Washington Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwashington - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Kerry) and a fashion line called “Kerry Washington Seduction”.
