The American actor-director 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 Connolly Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Patchogue Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderconnolly - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Kevin) and a fashion line called “Kevin Connolly Seduction”.
