Ellen Barkin Net Worth: Ellen Barkin is an American actress who has a net worth of $60 million. Ellen Barkin was born April 16, 1964 in The Bronx, New York. Barkin wanted to be an actress as early as her teens and was eventually accepted into Manhattan's High School of the Performing Arts then attended Hunter College and received her degree after double majoring in history and drama. Barkin furthered her education at New York's Actor's Studio. She performed off-Broadway in such plays Shout Across the River (1979), Extremities (1983), Fool for Love (1984) and Eden Court (1985) and was applauded for her first film lead in Diner (1982). She pursued sexy tough-cookie status thereafter with quirky roles in The Big Easy (1986), Siesta (1987) with Irish actor Gabriel Byrne, whom she married in 1987 and later divorced. Her trademark squinting eyes and slightly off-kilter facial features set her apart from the typical Hollywood female stereotype and she soon landed a role opposite Al Pacino in the thriller Sea of Love (1989). She was well-cast as Robert De Niro's abused wife in This Boy's Life (1993) and portrayed Calamity Jane in Wild Bill (1995). Other offbeat projects included roles in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999) and Mercy (2000). On TV, she won an Emmy award for her gripping performance in Before Women Had Wings (1997) opposite Oprah Winfrey as another abused wife who, in this case, turns her violent anger on her own daughters. In late 2005, Barkin ventured into independent film production with Applehead Pictures, a company she set up with her brother George Barkin, who is a scriptwriter and former editor-in-chief of National Lampoon and High Times, and former Independent Film Channel executive Caroline Kaplan. Barkin co-starred in Ocean's Thirteen (2007) and followed that up with a supporting role in Antoine Fuqua's Brooklyn's Finest (2009), Happy Tears (2009) and Twelve (2010). Recently, Barkin has produced features, including Letters to Juliet (2010) and Another Happy Day (2011) (also starring in the latter). On the small screen, she appeared in an episode of Modern Family (2009) and her new NBC show, The New Normal (2012). Barkin was married to billionaire businessman Ronald Perelman for six years. Her settlement from the divorce was $40 million.
