About Edward Furlong
As for the day, Edward Furlong net worth is really modest – the actor and musician has no more than $100 thousand in his disposal. His financial problems has been well known for the public at least since 2011, when he was sued buy his former wife, former actress Rachael Bella for not paying child support. When faced with the accusations, the actor had to admit that the reason why he has stopped sending the checks is pretty simple: he is completely broke. Nonetheless, he was ordered to pay Bella over $15 thousand. You might think this is unfair, but before you make any judgment you should know why Edward Furlong net worth is as small as it is today. The thing is, the star has been on and off the heavy drugs since he was in his early 20s. So even though fame is hard to handle at an early age, he kind of has nobody to blame for the difficult situation he is currently in. Edward has destroyed his career and wasted nearly all of his money with his own hands. But let’s not jump to an end and take a look at the beginnings of his professional career.
Edward Furlong net worth started to grow when he was still a kid. In 1991, at the age 14, he debuted with movie Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Not only this movie was a huge commercial success, grossing almost $520 million against a budget of $100 million, it has also garnered the teenager actor variety of prestigious accolades. For the portrayal of John Connor in this science fiction action thriller Edward received Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor, MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance, Young Artist Award for Best Youth Actor – Leading Role in a Motion Picture Drama, Las Vegas Film Critics Society Award for Youth in Film and Teen Choice Award for Film – Choice Breakout Performance. Following this breakthrough, the 15-year-old got romantically involved with Jacqueline Domac, a woman 14 years his senior, who was assigned as his tutor for the filming period. Edward‘s uncle and aunt, who had his custody at the time, did not take the news about the affair very well, to say the least. One thing led to another, and the actor was emancipated by the age 17.
Unfortunately for him, the teenage star did not handle his newly gained independence very well. He started partying and trying out various drugs. While leading this damaging lifestyle, the actor has still appeared in quote a few movies, such as Animal Factory and Detroit Rock City. But his career was clearly going down and Edward Furling net worth was steadily decreasing. As far as I know the star still has not overcome his addictions, so I don‘t think this tendency is about to change!
