Net Worth – How Rich Is She?
It’s very safe to say that Claire is having a flourishing career in Hollywood. She has continued to benefit from her hard work and roles on several television shows and movies, despite starting out in 1991.
She has accumulated an impressive $5 million fortune over the course of her acting career. Though she boasts a decent net worth, Claire plans to take over Hollywood someday.
Where Is She Now?
No doubt, Claire Forlani had a great career in Hollywood with fellow A-listers of her time. Her robust career was cut short by her mother’s sickness, which eventually led to her take a break from acting for some time to cater for her dying mother, appearing as a minor character in a handful of films.
Claire made a comeback after a few years, appearing in the blockbusters – Boys and Girls and Anti-rust. At the moment, her acting career has slowed down because she now has a family to cater for and bigger responsibility to take care of. But she is still as active and talented as she was before.
