About Daniel Baldwin
You may have expected him to be a millionaire, but in reality Daniel Baldwin net worth is no bigger than $400 thousand. He is most famous for the performance on television series Homicide: Life on the Street as well as productions like Grey Gardens , Paparazzi, Mulhaland Falls, Ned Blessing: The True Story of My Life and The Pandora Project, each of which contributed to the growth of the overall Daniel Baldwin net worth.
Even though during his career, which started back in the late 1980s, Daniel has earned 115 acing credits (this is according to IMDb.com), his fortune is absolutely modest. In fact, Daniel is the poorest of four Baldwin brothers! Stephen and Billy (William) have $500 thousand each, while Alec Baldwin net worth amounts to $65 million. Compared to him, Stephen, Daniel and Billy all seem poor bustards… But I guess this is only natural. After all, Alec, the oldest of Baldwin brothers, is the most accomplished too. During his career this actor has starred on variety of great movies, such as The Marrying Man (1991), The Shadow (1994), The Aviator (2004), The Departed (2006), and garnered a number of prestigious awards, including three Golden Globes.
So why Daniel’s fortune is still so modest? Well first of all, majority of the roles he has appeared in weren’t that important. Second, this actor has already survived a couple of divorces (from Cheryl Baldwin in the 1980s and Elizabeth Baldwin in 1995) and we all know that these tend to cost a lot. By the way, it seems like Daniel and his current wife, Joanne Smith-Baldwin, are on the brink of divorce too: the actor has already failed for divorce twice in 2011 (later dropping the filings) and in 2012. Third, the actor has 5 children and some of them are still underage.
But here is the fourth and I think the most important reason why Daniel Baldwin net worth remains relatively low. The actor has been using cocaine since the late 1990s (at least) and was repeatedly arrested for the related reasons. In 2007 Baldwin admitted having a problem and began starring on reality TV show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. He left the program after 4 episodes and the real reasons behind this decision remain unknown. However, the most plausible version suggests that the actor was sending inappropriate messages for his colleague on the show, Mary Carey, and was asked to leave for this reason. Well, what can I say… Unless the actor gets himself together, overcomes his drug addiction and learns to stay out of trouble, there is no way that Daniel Baldwin net worth will ever reach a million. Quite to the contrary, I won‘t be surprised if he goes bankrupt!
